Let's see. Hauled before a judge, likely to be convicted and sent to jail where you well may die. Your house and land will be confiscated, and your family thrown out into the lane. Do you recant, or witness to your experience of God Within? You testify! Quaking, your face contorted and streaming with tears, you testify to the workings of the Lord despite the terrors you will face, and you find Light and Peace. They quaked, and we may be called to do the same. Let's not forget it.
