Evidence For Christianity

Documenting The Overwhelming Evidence For The Christian Faith

The Courage Of Modern Day Martyrs - Another Type Of Evidence For The Christian Faith

The incredible story of courage posted below is originally from a devotional called "Extreme Devotion" which you can find in the Amazon carousel in the sidebar of this blog.

We have been reading many stories of Christian martyrs lately, and it strikes us that the courage of modern Christian martyrs is another form of evidence for the Christian faith.

When you have truly met the living God, you know that you have something worth dying for. All throughout history Christians have been tortured and killed, and it is still going on today.

In what other religion will you find beautiful stories such as the one posted below?:


The young brown-eyed girl looked up at her mother. What would she decide?

Earlier that morning, the young girl's mother, their pastor, and twenty-six others in her North Korean village of GokSan were bound and taken before a screaming crowd of Communists.

One of the guards ordered Pastor Kim and the other Christians, "Deny Christ, or you will die." The words chilled her. How could they ask her to deny Jesus? She knew in her heart he was real. They all quietly refused.

Then the Communist guard shouted directly at the adult Christians, "Deny Christ, or we will hang your children." The young girl looked up at her mother. She gripped her and knowing how much her mom loved her. her mother then leaned down. With confidence and peace she whispered, "Today, my love, I will see you in heaven."

All of the children were hanged.

The remaining believers were then brought out onto the pavement and forced to lie down in front of a huge steamroller. The Communists gave them one last chance. "Deny this Jesus or you will be crushed." The Christians had already given up their children; there was no turning back.

As the driver started the heavy piece of equipment, the singing from the villagers started softly. "More love, O Christ, to thee, more love to thee."
