Hour 1: The Cost Of Following Jesus

Today we focus on the Persecuted Church. We start with a new report, just released by Open Doors USA, that ranks countries on how severe Christian persecution is in that particular nation. Which nation topped the list? Then we hear stories of those who are persevering in the face of danger, knowing that saying “yes” to Jesus might cost them everything. Get ready to lengthen your prayer list.

Or maybe you’ve encountered obstacles and have hard questions that need to be addressed before you can move ahead. Whatever it is that has made you curious about this faith, there are good answers waiting to be discovered. So go ahead. Question Christianity. Just give Christianity the chance to answer back.
