Rachel was a university sophomore taking Spanish.
The professor, speaking Spanish, asked the class a question: “How many of you believe in angels?
Rachel was the only one to raise her hand.
The professor chuckled. “Tell us why you believe in angels.”
“I believe in angels because the Bible speaks of angels.”
Another chuckle. “Are you saying that you actually believe the Bible is true?”
“Yes, I do believe the Bible is true.”
The professor laughed aloud and continued to question Rachel while ridiculing her Christian beliefs. She stood strong while the rest of the class remained silent.
Three students caught up with Rachel after class to tell her they were also Christians and were silently praying for her. Rachel thanked them but in the future decided she would remain silent as well.
What would you have done? Have you heard of similar tactics in colleges and universities?

This life is temporary. This life is short. When this life is over, our bodies will die and become empty shells, but our souls will continue to live forever. Where will the “real you” live? Will you live for all eternity separated from God? Or will you spend eternity in the presence of God in heaven? Learn more so you can make your most important decision: http://www.godlife.com/gospel/
