Followers of Jesus have every reason to be afraid but no reason to stay fearful. We have every reason to feel concerned but no justification for being violent. For in Jesus' own words as He was murdered by the state we have a practical response. "Father, forgive them for they know not what they do."
For some, admitting you're a Christian is tough. I've never had that problem. I used to be a self-absorbed binge drinker with obsessive tendencies, and thanks to the Lord, I'm now a people-loving Jesus freak. However what the secular crowd doesn't always realize about Christians is that we're still human, and we have weaknesses that can still surface under certain arduous circumstances.
