In the Face of Evil, We Must Live Our Faith Out Loud

Cattails / In the Face of Evil, We Must Live Our Faith Out LoudToday my heart is heavy after being assaulted by the evil depicted across the internet of the American journalist being beheaded. I woke with the following thoughts: As followers of Jesus Christ we must not be deterred by evil. Our mission remains the same as the day it was given to us—Go, and make disciples. 

Of an Unnamed Nigerian Woman

Voice of the Martyrs Monument: A Nigerian WomanDisplayed on the Martyrs Monument (at The Voice of The Martyrs USA ministry office in Bartlesville, Oklahoma) are the names of many martyrs—each one representing a real person with a real story.

Remembering Our Brothers and Sisters in Christ in North Korea

Asian girl praying"We Western Christians are tempted or deceived into confusing God with Mammon, and freedom of religion with freedom in Christ.

Randy’s novel Safely Home and Opening Our Eyes to the Reality of the Persecuted Church

Safely Home by Randy AlcornWhen Randy wrote Safely Home, no one knew how readers would respond—especially considering the topics of persecution and martyrdom that the novel deals with are anything but light and superficial. Randy’s goal, he explains, was to tell a compelling story which fueled the reader’s imagination, and also served the purpose of Proverbs 31:8-9, speaking up for those who cannot speak for themselves.

A 6-minute video drama based on Safely Home

Safely Home DramaI was very moved by this video produced by Matthew Holbrook and the high school ministry of Grace Church of Orange. I came to Christ while in high school, and it’s very encouraging to see high schoolers focus their attention on following Christ wholeheartedly.

 

Perspectives on Louie Giglio, the Homosexual Issue and What It Means to Be a Christ-Follower in This Culture

Louie GiglioLast Thursday the internet exploded with the Louie Giglio “scandal.” What was this outrageous revelation? An eighteen-year-old recording of a sermon Louie preached. His sermon actually shows that—wait for it—this Christian pastor believed and taught what the Bible has said, and virtually all Christians have believed, for two thousand years.

Safely Home drama

Last year I received a letter and DVD from Darcy DeLeon, who teaches at Temple Christian School in Lima, Ohio. Darcy and her team turned my novel Safely Home into a musical drama, which was performed by the school’s students last March. A lot of effort went into producing it, and I really appreciate it!
