Notes & Transcripts

In Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream, David Platt writes, “I was in Indonesia, the country with the largest Muslim population in the world, teaching in an Indonesian seminary. Before they graduate, the students in this seminary are required to plant a church, with at least thirty new, baptized believers, in a Muslim community. I spoke at their commencement ceremony, and as the graduates walked across the stage, I was captivated by the humble yet confident look on their faces. Every one of them had fulfilled the church-planting requirement. The most solemn part of the day was a moment of silence for two of their classmates who had died at the hands of Muslim persecutors.”

Matthew 5:10-12 (CEV) (10) God blesses those people who are treated badly for doing right. They belong to the kingdom of heaven. (11) God will bless you when people insult you, mistreat you, and tell all kinds of evil lies about you because of me. (12) Be happy and excited! You will have a great reward in heaven. People did these same things to the prophets who lived long ago
