I tell people all the time about the people across the world who are persecuted for their faith in Jesus. It's a concept I have a difficult time grasping living in America, where freedom of religion is seen as a virtue. I tell people to pray for the persecuted church, to give to those who are persecuted, to subscribe to Voice of the Martyrs (www.persecution.com).
But, for some reason, when I received a copy of this magazine in the mail I found myself turning it face down so I wouldn't have to see this while I was eating. The face of a woman who was badly burned for her faith in Jesus just didn't quite sit well with my cereal.
Maybe I don't care as much as I think.
