== References ==A [[Christianity|Christian]], in contrast, never hides who he is, nor denies his identity. If the world chooses to punish such a person by death or by other means, a Christian knows that [[Jesus Christ]] warned him this would happen. He also said one coming under such attack or punishment would receive the greater reward in [[heaven]] on that very account.
