3.1 Christian Resources: New Class Posted in the Voice of the Martyrs Classroom

Voice of the Martyrs has a new class titled “Great Is Your Reward” in its free classroom of courses related to the persecution of Christians.

The purpose of this class is to make Christians more aware and more competent in their understanding of persecution. Most of the material relates to the potential for persecution, that there are those who are undergoing persecution right now, and how to prepare for the possibility of persecution for doing the will of God. What is it is that motivates those who are being persecuted to remain faithful? What is the reason that people will go through incredible suffering for Christ and not recant or turn their backs on their Lord? The answer to these questions is the substance of the material in this class.
