I recently became a Christian and was still fairly new in my walk. I went to a VOM youth event called ‘Bound with Them’ out of curiosity. I was highly impacted by the testimonies which made me realise what real Christianity consists of.
Following this, my friend and I decided to watch the ‘Tortured for Christ’ DVD. What really impacted me what the scene where Richard is in a congress meeting promoting communism:
“My wife and I were present at this congress. Sabina told me, “Richard, stand up and wash away this shame from the face of Christ! They are spitting in His face.” I said to her, “If I do so, you lose your husband.” She replied, “I don’t wish to have a coward as a husband.”
This made me emotional and made me realise the real cost of the Christian faith.
I now volunteer with Voice of the Martyrs.
