Jesus says, “Blessed are the persecuted.” Anyone here saying, “I got to get me some of that?” Do you believe Christians are being persecuted in America? Conspiracy theories are a growth industry in America. To paraphrase Kurt Cobain, of the rockband Nirvana, “Just because you are paranoid doesn’t mean they’re not after you.” But let me clearly say, American Christians are not persecuted. We are pampered, spoiled, privileged, and at times arrogant, but we are not persecuted. If you are not convinced, I admit that a lot of Christians believe this narrative about persecution. It comes in the colorful gift wrapping of religious liberty. Let’s unwrap this narrative package, and see if Christians are being persecuted.
