Nero was a Roman emperor around 54 A.D. Nero was a self-centered and even ruthless individual at times, especially against Christians. Nero was what some might consider a demonic driven individual that hated anyone who would challenge his rulership. Nero even became so possessed by the darkness in his life that he went as far as to set a good part of Rome on fire and then blame its destruction on the Christian people so to turn the population against the Christians to attack and destroy them.

Today Nero has returned in the form of “political correctness”, in alternate life-styles, in sinful actions of all kinds, that when things go wrong, it is blamed on Christians. They are called narrow minded these Christians who are told that they are intolerant and are haters because their beliefs go against what others want to do. So again Nero attacks and puts the blame for social problems on the Christians and their persecution continues to grow and grow until bad situations are made worse. Laws are made to limit the Christian’s influence- and threat after threat is made toward any who will not accept the perversions of today’s society.
More and more the Christian today is being marginalized to the place where their voice will no longer be tolerated- and the Christian will change their views or else pay the price for not doing so. Now some may think it is all not this bad but look at where we’ve come from in the last 25 years and consider what the next 25 holds for this world if it continues on the pace it is running now.
