The Religion News Blog reports on continuing violence against Christ believers in Vietnam. You can read the details at their website but it reminds me just how blessed we are in this country.
Like you, I am often frustrated at the direction our country seems headed. Immorality rules. Faith is challenged. But we do not face the struggles like people in some distant lands. These people strive to remain faithful under the harshest of punishments while we often fold our faith for the lightest inconveniences.
Their faith should encourage us to step up and be faithful unto death (Revelation 2:10; Revelation 2:25-26).

I followed somebody’s tweet here. I confess to being disappointed on two counts. One, as a news editor looking for stories about churches of Christ, “Christian” was used in its cultural sense, not its biblical meaning.
Two, in the story you linked to, the guy crumpled. Now, I can’t say what I or any of us would do in similar circumstances. But the story seems to take away from your point, which is valid.
Though only the Lord in his foreknowledge can say how much longer those of us in the West have to exercise our freedom.
