The Mark Series, Part 5: Ready to Suffer

Vinh LeJesus Christ6 Comments

“This is the course that I have adopted in the case of those brought before me as Christians. I ask them if they are Christians. If they admit it, I repeat the question a second and a third time, threatening capital punishment; if they persist, I sentence them to death. For I do not doubt that, whatever kind of crime it may be to which they have confessed, their pertinacity and inflexible obstinacy should certainly be punished…[those] who denied that they were or had been Christians I considered should be discharged…especially because they cursed Christ, a thing which, it is said, genuine Christians cannot be induced to do.” – Pliny the Younger, appointed governor of Bithynia c. 110 AD, in a letter to the Roman emperor Trajan

What if your life as a Christian was one big hoax? What if, after you died, you awoke only to find yourself at the whims of a capricious Deity that you chose not to serve in your lifetime? What if you realized that the Bible, the gospel, the tenets of the Christian faith, and the message of Jesus were all lies?
