Bible Quotes in Song Listen
   
10Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. 12Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
(Matthew 5:10-12)

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
(Romans 8:35)

10But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience, 11Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me. 12Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
(2 Timothy 3:10-12)

Popular Bible Quotes
 
  But since he has no root, he lasts only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, he quickly falls away.
--Matthew 13:21

Remember the words I spoke to you: 'No servant is greater than his master.' If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also.
--John 15:20

 That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
--2 Corinthians 12:10


Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer. I tell you, the devil will put some of you in prison to test you, and you will suffer persecution for ten days. Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you the crown of life.
--Revelation 2:10
Inspirational Quotes from Famous People

Tolerance implies no lack of commitment to one's own beliefs. Rather it condemns the oppression or persecution of others.
--John Fitzgerald Kennedy quotes (American 35th US President (1961-63), 1917-1963)

Once you attempt legislation upon religious grounds, you open the way for every kind of intolerance and religious persecution.
--
William Butler Yeats quotes (Irish prose Writer, Dramatist and Poet. Nobel Prize for Literature in 1923. 1865-1939)

Persecution is not an original feature in any religion; but it is always the strongly marked feature of all religions established by law.
--
Thomas Paine quotes (English born American Writer and political pamphleteer, whose 'Common Sense' and 'Crisis' papers were important influences on the American Revolution. 1737-1809)

Persecution is the first law of society because it is always easier to suppress criticism than to meet it.
--
Howard Mumford Jones quotes

There is no truth sure enough to justify persecution.
--
John Milton quotes (English Poet, Historian and Scholar. Ranks second, only to Shakespeare, among English poets. 1608-1674)

The most savage controversies are those about matters as to which there is no good evidence either way. Persecution is used in theology, not in arithmetic.
--Bertrand Russell quotes (English Logician and Philosopher 1872-1970)

Religions that teach brotherly love have been used as an excuse for persecution, and our profoundest scientific insight is made into a means of mass destruction.
--Bertrand Russell quotes (English Logician and Philosopher 1872-1970)

Persecution was at least a sign of personal interest. Tolerance is composed of nine parts of apathy to one of brotherly love.
--Frank Moore Colby quotes (American writer 1865 - 1925)

The dictum that truth always triumphs over persecution is one of the pleasant falsehoods which men repeat after one another till they pass into commonplaces, but which all experience refutes.
--John Stuart Mill quotes (English exponent of Utilitarianism, ethical theorist, Philosopher, Economist and Logician. 1806-1873)

The Bible on Persecution

The Christian life is not always easy. "When you are reviled and persecuted and lied about because you are My followers—wonderful! Be happy about it! Be very glad! for a tremendous reward awaits you up in heaven. And remember, the ancient prophets were persecuted too." Matthew 5:11-12, TLB.
"Those who decide to please Christ Jesus by living godly lives will suffer at the hands of those who hate Him. In fact, evil men and false teachers will become worse and worse, deceiving many, they themselves having been deceived by Satan. But you must keep on believing the things you have been taught. You know they are true for you know that you can trust those of us who have taught you." II Timothy 3:12-14, TLB.

Persecution does not last forever. "After you have suffered a little while, our God, who is full of kindness through Christ, will give you His eternal glory. He personally will come and pick you up, and set you firmly in place, and make you stronger than ever." I Peter 5:10, TLB.

There is a promise for those persecuted by their family. "And anyone who gives up his home, brothers, sisters, father, mother, wife, children, or property, to follow Me, shall receive a hundred times as much in return, and shall have eternal life." Matthew 19:29, TLB.

Trials help us grow spiritually. "Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance." James 1:2-3, NIV.
