The Tongue

"My translator told me, 'Brother Yun, these people don't want to know the truth. That's why they're not calling you or wanting to meet you. In China, Christians are persecuted with beatings and imprisonment. In the West, Christians are persecuted by the words of other Christians.' This new kind of spiritual persecution was no easier than physical persecution in China, just different. I cried out in prayer, asking the Lord for strength. I forgave the people behind this attack from the bottom of my heart, and we continued our trip."
