No Denial of Christ
During the Communist regime, there were many "illegal" Bible studies that took place. This story occurred in an Asian country in the 1970's. Further details of the setting are not available.
Communist soldiers discovered an illegal Bible study while the pastor of the group was reading from the Bible. The soldiers had guns and terrorized the believers. They insulted the Christians, and the leader pointed his gun at the pastor's head and demanded his Bible.
The pastor handed over the Bible, and the Communist leader threw the Bible on the floor and said that they would be set free if they spat on the book of lies. Anyone would be shot if they refused, no other choice.
The soldier pointed the gun at a man and said "You first!" The man slowly knelt before the Bible, spit on it, and said "Father, please forgive me." He stood up, and the soldiers let him leave. The next person did the same thing; she unwillingly spat on the Bible, and was set free.
Then a young girl was next in line. She had a zeal for her Savior and refused to obey the atheistic Communists. She wiped off the spit with her dress, picked up the Bible, and said "Oh, Lord. What have they done to your Word? Please forgive them."
The soldiers pointed the gun at her and pulled the trigger.
MAY WE NEVER DENY CHRIST, EVEN IF WE MUST DIE FOR IT!!
