Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.

    Reading 1 Peter 3:13-17

    What are some of the thoughts that come to your mind reading these verses?

    13 Who is there to harm you if you prove zealous for what is good? 14 But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, 15 but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence; 16 and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame. 17 For it is better, if God should will it so, that you suffer for doing what is right rather than for doing what is wrong.

    This entire letter is about the Christian's calling to suffer. Suffer the call to be holy, suffer authority, suffer being wronged for doing what is right, etc.
    In chapter 2, we are called to submit to every ordinance of human authority whether for punishment upon the evil or praise upon the good.
    But we are also to suffer when that punishment is unjust. This is that most Christ-like suffering which is most contrary to our nature, and trying to our faith, but yields the greatest reward of Heaven.
