Hatred of the Gospel

Jesus warned us that in the last days, the gospel would be rejected and His followers would be hated.  Though unreported by secular media, we are seeing staggering increases in the persecution of Christians and the destruction of Christian Churches worldwide.  This morning Mike and David discuss the real story behind the headlines of the Notre Dame Cathedral fire in Paris, and an internationally known Christian Rugby player threatened because of his Christian beliefs.And on this Holy Week leading up to our celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, the gospel is under attack around the world.
