How much should Christians try to fit with modern culture? Where is the line between living as part of our community and living a holy life? In this message we learn six truths we must remember if we want the courage to suffer for holiness instead of following the crowd and choosing sin.

Around the world, Christians suffer. In Pakistan, Christian women are gang raped. In China, men are set outside naked in the winter and doused with cold water, left to freeze to death because they shared Christian literature. In the Sudan, children are hacked open with machetes and their mothers have their hands hacked off, all for claiming Christ as the only one who can save them from their sin. Why are Christians persecuted so mercilessly, and without cause? In John 15, Jesus tells us why following Jesus draws persecution like blood in the water for a shark.
