History in Repeat -The Collapse of Rome.

Pliny, governor of Bithynia (modern day Turkey) to Emperor Trajan, (about 110 AD). “I am continuing the practice of killing Christians but I am just wondering if I should keep doing so because the only crime I can find about them is that they sing a hymn to Christ as if to a God.”

Our worship of Jesus has a long, unbroken history. But so does direct opposition. We’ve entered a new day in the U.S. with much in common with the history of Rome and the Roman Empire as it was poised to collapse.

The brutal assault on life, whether in the abortion “clinics” or on the streets is a major and terrifying sign of the times.

The legendary courage of the early Christian martyrs is exemplary and may well be yet one more example of history repeating itself.

God give us grace. Even if it is the grace to die for Him. Amidst the dust and ashes, Christianity will not kill, but will die for truth.

Even as our culture, like Ancient Rome melts down around us.
