Persecuted by Religion

Religious people cannot tolerate the breaking of their regulations. Any violation of their religious regulations will stir up persecution. When Jesus broke the Sabbath, the Jewish religionists persecuted Him and even sought to kill Him. Eventually, religion succeeded in sentencing Jesus to death. In the book of Acts we see that the situation was the same regarding the persecution of the apostles.

In like manner, a great many martyrs have suffered persecution at the hand of religion. Now it is our turn to undergo this persecution, this suffering for the building up of the Body of Christ.
