WEEKLY DEVOTIONALS – 2011
The Bible – Absolute Truth – Week 36
 
Then Jesus spoke to the multitudes
and to his disciples, saying,
‘The scribes and the Pharisees have
seated themselves in the chair of Moses;
therefore all that they tell you,
do and observe,
but do not do according to their deeds;
for they say things and do not do them ...

They love the place of honor at banquets
and the chief seats in the synagogues,
and respectful greetings in the market places,
and being called Rabbi by men ...

Do not call anyone on earth father;
for One is your Father, He who is in heaven.’
Matthew 23:1, 2, 6, 7, 9

 
During the 6th - 14th centuries, the Church was held captive by many different men of power and authority.
The following are two young men who were faithful to Christ and were martyred for their faith in Christ alone.

King Edmund (AD 869)
He said that his faith was dearer to him than life and he would never redeem his own life and offend God.
He would not renounce Christ, and was a godly English king.
The Danish warrior, Hinquar, killed him for his faith with arrows and an axe.
Edmund was in his mid 20's when he died.

Pelagius (AD 925)
As a young boy in Spain, he was martyred by the Muslim emir.
The emir offered Pelagius money, fine clothes, horses, and honors if he would do one thing: renounce his Christian faith and accept Mohammed as his prophet.
Instead, Pelagius (age 13) confessed his Christian faith and told the emir he was ready to die for it.
After great torture, he died holding steadfast to his faith.
 

THOUGHTS TO PONDER THIS WEEK

These two young men were outstanding TRUTHBEARERS of the One True Faith!!
They took a stand for God and were killed for Truth.
  • How willing are we to stand up for Truth in our home, neighborhood, church, state, and country?
  • What might it cost you to stand for the truth of Scripture?
