Vice GripsHow will Christians react when the screws are tightened?

Last week we looked at the year 2013 as it relates to the Christian faith.  Today we take a look ahead at what might lie in store in 2014.

We are warned in the Bible that the day would come when people would reject sound doctrine and become lovers of self, rejecting the truth of God for the lies of man.  Now this has gone on since Adam and Eve were expelled from the Garden of Eden.  We must remember that when the Apostle Paul was inspired by the Holy Spirit to write this warning he was writing it to and about “Christians”—that many would abandon the true faith because they love the things of this world more than they love the truth of God.

Today we take a look at how the world will “tighten the screws” in 2014 and discuss how Christian churches and individuals might respond.  Will we remain faithful no matter what the cost?  Or seek compromise for the sake of popularity and worldly prosperity?
