If you think you've had a bad day....

...think about what these Christians had to endure, as reported by Baptist Press.

At the urging of local Muslim leaders, police in western Bangladesh have tortured a pastor and two other Christians for legally proclaiming Christ. Police blindfolded them after reaching the camp and took them to three separate rooms."I heard blood-curdling scream from other rooms," Rahman said. "I was sitting on the floor blindfolded. I could not understand what was happening around me. Later several police came to me and one of them kicked me on the back of my head, and my head ricocheted off the wall. They also kicked my waist." Ordering him to say how many people he had converted to Christianity in the Muslim-majority nation, the commander said he would kick him a like number of times. The official told him to call out to Jesus, saying he wanted to see how Jesus would save him, Rahman said.

Somehow, I think these guys have a better idea of what it means to follow Christ than Rick Warren or Joel Osteen. What do you think?

You are correct. It is a sad day when Rick Warren tries to hold hands with the Muslims to promote 'peace'!

They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.(Jer 6:14)
