Saudi Woman Killed by Her Father for Her Faith In Christ
Here is an account of a young woman whose father burned her to death and cut out her tongue for becoming a Christian. This is shocking, and you can read the story from Voice of the Martyrs. But it should not be a surprise, Jesus said it would be this way. According to Christ, this woman has not lost her life. She has gained it!
“34 “Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword. 35 For I have come to ‘set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law’; 36 and ‘a man’s enemies will be those of his own household.’ 37 He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. 38 And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. 39 He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it.”
