Twin brothers David and Jason Benham revealed what happened when HGTV executives decided to pull their show due to their Christian beliefs. They are pro-life and pro-traditional marriage; and when their network discovered their views, they cancelled their show called Flip It Forward.
“We knew right from the onset that when we accepted Christ into our heart, our dad always raised us – that you’re going to experience persecution,” the Benhams said.
This is not the only act of anti-Christian persecution occurring in America; with the dramatic push for political correctness and the call for “equal rights.”
Another example is a couple in Oregon that is facing fines after being found guilty of discrimination for refusing to bake a cake for a same-sex wedding.
Jesus, in the Sermon of the Mount, addressed this issue:
Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you. – Matthew 5:11-12
