The following is an excerpt taken from the book I’m reading. It really made me think about how hard it would be to actually live out what we believe.
The government of Chiapas has just passed a law that every resident must keep a stone idol in his or her house. You do not have to worship the idol, but it is mandatory to have it in your home, otherwise you will be imprisoned for five years. Do you keep the idol in your home to avoid arrest and continue to witness to others? Or do you refuse to put a false god in your house and face imprisonment?
What would you do?
