These days, conservatives and Christians alike seem in constant danger of adapting the worldly victim mentality of the left.

If we truly believe ourselves to be redeemed by the Lord, we ought to always keep in mind that to be persecuted for righteousness or His name’s sake is a reason to rejoice, not a reason to feel sorry for ourselves.

This is not to say it isn’t vitally important to bring attention to cases of discrimination or persecution against conservatives or Christians.

It is the way we respond to persecution that makes all the difference, and one London street preacher who went viral after being unjustly harassed and detained by the Metropolitan police stands as an inspiring example as to how to respond in the face of outrageous persecution.

Will Maule of Faithwire reports for CBN:

Oluwole Ilesanmi, the Nigerian man who was arrested in London for simply preaching the Gospel, has spoken out following his release. “Olu” was simply quoting Scripture and preaching the good news of Jesus to anyone who would listen when, on Feb. 23, he was accosted by two police officers and arrested for “breaching the peace.”

The Metropolitan police told Faithwire that, after it became clear that Olu had done nothing wrong, he was subsequently “de-arrested” and no charges were filed. Wednesday, it was announced that an investigation had been launched into the shocking incident.

“I was the one arrested,” Olu said in a video produced by UK anti-persecution watchdog, Christian Concern.

“The police came on the scene and yanked me away,” he continued. “I was taken out of the vicinity into a very remote place, thinking I would not even be able to get back.”

Despite having no money and being left by the police in an unfamiliar neighborhood, Olu said that “God raised for me people in the streets that could be of assistance.”

After finding his way back to Southgate Tube Station in North London, Olu said he “started preaching again the word of God.”

The video of Olu has gone viral, with many brothers and sisters in Christ sending in support. But Olu’s faith in spite of this disturbing incident is inspiring.

“My appreciation goes to everybody all over the world,” he says.

“I am well, I am OK,” he added. “No evil, as the Word has said, will come near my dwelling. God has been so faithful.”

Praise God! Never lose sight of Who has the victory, today, tomorrow, and throughout eternity. The world will rage against His Word, but nothing and no one can defeat Him!

Superstar rap artist Kanye West, who has been all over the news for the last few months due to his open proclamation of Christian conversion, recently opened up about the making of his latest album set to be released soon, “Jesus Is King,” saying he told employees working on the album they had to abstain from pre-marital sex. West also went on to slam pornography saying it’s “not okay.” Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “When collaborating with others on ‘Jesus Is King,’ West set up some lifestyle guidelines that they would have to abide by in order be part of the project,” Billboard reported. “Yeezy asked others to fast during portions of creating and also not partake in any premarital sex at times, which he knew would receive some blowback once it became public.” “There were times where I was asking people not to have premarital sex while they were working on the album,” West told Lowe, noting, “When people pray together and fast together, the power is increased.” The 42-year-old explained that he no longer views himself as a “slave” to the music industry, but as a “free” “son of God” spreading the gospel. West went on to talk about how he feels he has now been called to spread the gospel with his platform, noting how he used to talk about high fashion, alcohol, and others things that had a profound impact on his life. But now, however, all that’s changed. Jesus is what he’s all about now. “Now that I’m in service to Christ, my job is to spread the gospel, to let people know what Jesus has done for me. I’ve spread a lot of things. There was a time I was letting you know what high fashion had done for me, I was letting…

I wrote this one for my boy,” TobyMac explained. “I wanted to let him know that I’m here for him and God is there for him. So lift your head my son to where your help comes from.” Here’s a few lyrics from the song that illustrated what the Christian rapper said: When life cuts so deep Try and remember You are not alone We’ve all been there Scars come with livin’ You are not alone We’ve all been there So lift your head, lift your head Lift your head to where your help comes from Yeah,…
