Cost of Being a Christian

Being a Christian in America appears to be easy in comparison to stories like Abdul Rahman, who maybe sentence to death in Afghanistan for being a Christian. CNN website writes: "Rahman, a father of two, was arrested and is on trial for rejecting Islam. The Afghan constitution, which is based on Sharia, or Islamic law, says that apostates can receive the death penalty...He had been arrested after telling local police, whom he approached on an unrelated matter, that he had converted to Christianity. Reports say he was carrying a Bible at the time. He said he converted to Christianity 16 years ago after working with a Christian aid group that assisted refugees in neighboring Pakistan"

May we pray for Adul Rahman's safety and that Afghan govt will do the right thing and give their people religious freedom.
