Enough to Convict?

I've been in vocational youth ministry since 1977.

I served with Kansas City Youth For Christ for a number of years.

Back in the day we did "Russian meetings," in which we'd have off duty police or military men barge into the meeting, "arrest" us, take away our Bibles, with the intent of showing how our brothers and sisters lived in the former Soviet Union etc.

Usually such a meeting would end with the question, "If Christianity were suddenly declared illegal in our nation, would there be enough evidence to convict you?"

I think about that often as I look at the Facebook pages of friends who profess to be Christians.

If Christianity were declared illegal, would there be enough evidence in your social media to convict you?

Perhaps worth pondering, honestly.
