But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

The Recent Atrocities

Written by

It is not easy to comment on the recent atrocities in London and Manchester, yet one cannot be silent. Things like the death penalty used to be a deterrent to the taking of a human life. Some say that we should restore the death penalty for murder. I would be in favour of its restoration, not...
