Case Study: Burial Ground in Nepal
At what point does a movement to Christ within a given society begin to insist on its basic human rights? Should it ever do so? How much persecution should minority Christians endure for the sake of the gospel? When should they bring the law of the land to bear of their situation? Why did Paul at times endure the punishment of local authorities (2 Cor. 11:25) and other times insist on justice (Acts 22:25).
These are just a few questions to consider as you watch this audio-slideshow about the Christian movement in Nepal. And don't just think about them yourself, engage your Nurture Program cohort or small group in considering these matters which may one day face us in America or wherever the Lord takes us.
