Persecution and the Church

Persecution is the world’s testimony to the Church’s purity. A wolf will not worry a painted sheep; a cat will not seize a toy mouse. The world may despise, but it will not persecute, a counterfeit Christian; it may scorn, but it will not burn, a hypocrite. Crucifixion is the evidence of Christliness.

F. W. Boreham, The Heavenly Octave (New York: The Abingdon Press, 1936), 110
