Tortured For Christ (1967) by Richard Wurmbrand

People have called me "Satan", " Worker of Satan", "Liar!", " Fool!", "stupid man writing about dead God", etc. My blog has been spammed, FB Page reported many times, savage comments on IG, etc. But when I read this book - for the third time - all of these are like mosquito bites in comparison with the persecutions that this man and other faithful Christians experienced.

Months of solitary confinement, years of periodic physical torture, constant suffering from hunger (like a piece of bread a week! Even none for months. Some ate rats in the prison) and cold, the torturous seven hours or more every day of brainwashing and mental cruelty. And other inhumane activities. What was his crime? Faith in Jesus Christ - and for witnessing to public. "God will judge us not according to how much we endured, but how much we could love," writes Wurmbrand.

This part is soo touching: "It was strictly forbidden to preach to other prisoners. It was understood that whoever was caught doing this received a severe beating. A number of us decided to pay the price for the privilege of preaching, so we accepted their [the communists'] terms. It was a deal; we preached and they beat us. We were happy preaching. They were happy beating us, so everyone was happy." To know the rest of the story, read this book. I think the ebook is available on the internet... 😉

Do you suffer for Christ? What are the things that if you do will glorify God but it will cost you something dear to you if you do it? Are you willing to do it? Are you comfortable with your brand of Christianity? Remember, true discipleship will offend the world 📖⚡💪 #ServeToLead #LeadersAreReaders #1Book1Week #LetsMakeReadingCoolAgain
