' I know that following Jesus,I'm going to be crucified.' As this little story of rural bigotry has filtered through to my attention in the United Kingdom. And having looked at some of the wit and wisdom on the this "ladies" Face book page. I can only find, that my impression of the Christian south of America, being closed minded and generally bigoted. Compassionless and ignorant. Isn't far from the mark. And that her comment about being crucified like Jesus. Shows a leaning towards megalomania and an identity crisis that should be carefully watched.

John 15:18-21 “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you... If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you... because they do not know Him who sent Me."

Matthew 10:16-20 “Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves.

For it will be given to you in that hour what you should speak; for it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you."

2 Timothy 3:1-5, 10-14 "But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God…. And from such people turn away! "…all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. But you must continue in the things which you have learned ..."
