WEB Notes: Some of these Christians denied Christ so they could receive what they needed. However, some of these Christians made a stand! I know our Father is extremely proud of them for that. How much truth do they really have about our Father’s Word I wonder. Probably not much, but they certainly love Christ or they would have buckled as well. Always remember, for those who truly love God and follow His Laws He already knows what you have need of (Matthew 6:30-34). I want you to remember something else. Turn your Bible with me to,
25 “Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.”
“Agree” means, “to be well minded” around your enemies. We do not want to deny Christ, but if we live in a nation with tough laws like India then we certainly do not need to advertise it as well. Remember, Christ told us Himself, when we pray and talk with our Father we do not need to do it openly. We can do it in secret (Matthew 6:1-8).
Villagers in Uttar Pradesh state, India beat Christians, forced them to participate in Hindu rituals and have refused to provide them water, sources said.

“How will we survive if we don’t grow our crops?” Sasikala Kumari asked Morning Star News, noting that the village head and police have allowed the Hindus to cut off the Christians water supply. “They have all joined together and are conspiring against us.”
