My heart goes out to these Christians yet I have the highest respect and honor for their loyalty to Christ. Most of us are so lucky to have the freedom we do have in our religion that we may not even appreciate it as we should, or understand what some Christians endure. I feel very ashamed to think how easy I have it as a Christian and possibly don't give it my all. Then there are those who face fear, pain, even death to live for Christ and don't give up! We find it hard to live for Christ in the easiest of circumstances? Some of us have no idea what hardships really are!
