(Worthy News) - The American pastor whose two-year imprisonment plunged Turkey into a diplomatic feud with the United States urged young Christians in his home country to prepare for the persecution he sees gathering for them on the horizon.

Pastor Andrew Brunson, 51, told the Washington Examiner how troubled he has been by the ominous trends he has observed in American culture during the year since his dramatic, high-stakes release from a Turkish prison. Drawing on the ordeal he recounts in God's Hostage, his new memoir published Oct. 15, Brunson also offered insight into what he gained from his suffering and how he learned to be faithful to God even when he is silent.

"It's actually very normal throughout history," Brunson said, reflecting on religious persecution. "The abnormality is to not have persecution, but we haven't had that much in the West. And so people don't expect it, and when you don't expect it, then you are not prepared for it." [ Source (Read More...) ]
