Dr. Carl Sterling Parnell, a Christian educator, author, and columnist, has completed his second book, which is in an Adobe pdf, eBook format.

A Brewing Pot of Christian Persecution: America’s Postmodern Anti-Christian Crusade exposes the tactics that are being used even now to rid America of Christianity. The anti-Christian agenda in America can be seen in the public school systems, the court systems, and throughout many other public settings. Despite the assumption that America is a Christian nation, it is obvious that Christendom and Christians are on the verge of being persecuted. Read your newspapers. Watch television news broadcasts. Read Internet articles. Read books on the topic (According to Russ Wise in his article “Education and New Age Humanism,” Sheila Schwartz, a member of the American Humanist Association, stated “…but thank God the Crazies don’t do all that much reading. If they did, they’d find they have already been defeated.”). Then, it would be much easier to accept that a brewing pot of Christian persecution is about to boil over in the United States, unless Christians everywhere become aware of what is going on behind closed doors and get on their knees in concerted prayer again.
Many people do not believe that Christian persecution exists in America. In fact, some people even believe that up to 90 percent of Americans are Christian. However, that is a very high estimate. But, regardless of how many people profess to be Christians in America, a brewing pot of Christian persecution is about to boil over in the nation that prides itself on religious freedom. Christians in the United States need to set their eyes on what happens in the halls of Congress in the next few years. They should become aware of the anti-Christian groups that seek to gain leverage over America’s Christian community. They should become aware of the proposed bills in Congress that would prevent Christians from worshiping freely inside and outside the four walls of their churches. But, most importantly, they should become aware of the persecution that already exists in America in businesses, public schools, public universities, government agencies, and, of course, the media. Therefore, Christians in America would then be able to mount a unified front against those who would attempt to deny Christians their religious freedoms without fear of persecution.
“If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.” John 15: 18-19
Since the founding of Jamestown, Virginia, the first permanent English colony in North America in 1607, the United States has been a Christian nation and the center of Christendom. However, in today’s postmodern American society, Christianity is beginning to lose its status as a Christian nation and it is being discredited as a faith-based religion. Also, Christianity is beginning to face fierce opposition from Islam and the elected and appointed representatives of the American people. In fact, President Obama has proclaimed many times that America is not a Christian nation any longer since he has been the President of the United States. Therefore, it is this negative anti-Christian attitude that could very well cause Christians in America to be persecuted more severely than in the past.
Most Americans, Christians and non-Christians alike, would totally disagree with the premise of A Brewing Pot of Christian Persecution: America’s Postmodern Anti-Christian Crusade, especially since 90 percent of Americans profess to be followers of the teachings of Jesus Christ. However, Christians are persecuted daily at work, at school, in the public sector, in the private sector, and even in Washington, D.C. In fact, Christians have been classified as “potential terrorists” by some government departments. Also, more positive comments have been made about Islam than Christianity as a “religion of peace” in the government sphere. Therefore, Christians in America need to become more aware of future persecutions that might just occur if America’s Anti-Christian Crusade succeeds in the years to come, especially since many whistleblowers in the federal government have published documented information that verifies the anti-Christian mood that exists in the halls of Congress, the courthouses throughout the land, and even the White House. As Jesus predicted in John 15:18-19, His followers would be persecuted since those who hate Jesus would ultimately hate them.
