How Do I Handle Persecution? Being persecuted by the world is one thing but its another when the people persecuting you are the christians who attend your church that you look up to. Ever since ive started going to my current church of about 3 years ive been accused of many things from the congregation and i dont think i can handle it anymore, these people are supposed to be there for me and help me to not get into things that are bad for me, not create the things for me to get into. I am sick of being judged by them, im not perfect but im trying everyday to be more and more better. i wish they could just accept me for who i am. so in conclusion i would like to ask you how should i handle the persecution that im getting from the staff and friends of mine at my church?
