Mark Prater, Executive Director for Sovereign Grace Churches, recently recorded a vlog about preparing for cultural changes and persecution. As Mark states, “… Obviously we’re, you know guys here in the States, I think throughout the world, are seeing the cultural trend as it relates to sexual identity and sexual ethics. The abortion issue has been an issue for some time, not only in this nation, but, but many nations.
And now you’re seeing the Supreme Court rule on those issues in a way, at least for Christians is, disappointing. So I think, you know, the way I’m thinking about it is that I think pastors have to begin to think about how to prepare their members for persecution. I don’t think that’s an overreaction because of the cultural trends and even biblically speaking, if we’re going to live a godly life, we’re going to be persecuted. It says that in 2 Timothy 3:12, so persecution should be expected.”
