On the streets, you hear things like ‘the Jews should be gassed, ‘the Jews should be burned–we haven’t had that in Germany for decades . . . . And it’s not just a German phenomenon. It’s an outbreak of hatred against Jews so intense that it’s very clear indeed”–The president of Germany’s Central Council of Jews.

“Most joyful will I confirm, with my blood, that truth which I have written and preached”–John Huss.

“I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me”–Galatians 2:20.

“I have told you these things so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world”–John 16:33.

“Don’t be surprised, brethren, if the world hates you. We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love abides in death.

We love by this, that He laid down His for us; and we ought  to lay down our lives for the brethren”–1 John 3:13-16.

“My father wasn’t worried about losing our country when he was growing up. That wasn’t the issue. Today, we are losing morally our nation, and the foundations of this country are collapsing and falling apart. . . .
