Do you recall an expression, “Children are to be seen, but not heard”?
When it comes to being a Christian in today’s world, that seems to be the feeling of many people. It is OK to be a Christian, but they don’t want you trying to force your beliefs on them.
Sometimes Christians are not treated the same way as any other group. No one seems alarmed when any other large group gets together, but they become alarmed when the gathering has a religious purpose.
