Quote
Proverbs 16:32 English Standard Version (ESV)
Whoever is slow to anger is better than the mighty,
    and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city.

"Takes a city" - that is fighting.

I am not sure what the current climate of Christian persecution is in your country but even if it is not too bad then you would be prudent to remember this Proverb and what it means anyway.





3 seconds (it really can be just 3 seconds) patience with someone who is persecuting you e.g.
  • Not getting violent when they are insulting you.
  • Keeping a clever and calm spirit when you feel threatened physically - getting time right to get away.
  • Never run from the police - they will catch you. Be honest instead and bring your own pen and paper to have ready.

IS BETTER THAN

8 hours in a police cell.





That's why being wise and prudent you can stay away from horrid situations - learn your Proverbs and receive God's wisdom by faith.

A few other things (there is more):
  • Get a good panic alarm.
  • Learn what you can do legally in self-defence (go to a martial arts school).
  • Get near a camera and hold your hands up in a defensive stance.
  • Use calm, constant Christian music to have on your earphones.






Be slow to anger and rule your spirit and you will be stronger than someone who takes over a whole city by force - that is exactly what the Proverb is saying i.e. that powerful.

Hi S+G,
              "3 seconds (it really can be just 3 seconds) patience with someone who is persecuting you e.g.
?Not getting violent when they are insulting you.
?Keeping a clever and calm spirit when you feel threatened physically - getting time right to get away.
?Never run from the police - they will catch you. Be honest instead and bring your own pen and paper to have ready.

8 hours in a police cell."

Can you explain why you think 3 seconds is sufficient to enable someone who is being persecuted.
Persecution last for far more than a few minutes or as an isolated event.
Equally those who have been detained spend far longer in custody than 8 hours.
Those falsly arrested in the uk for alledged hate crimes have been detained for 24 hours, compared to those in China who disapear.

Its the 3 seconds that it takes to bite your tongue that stops you getting detained.

The knowledge that you gave is still correct though.

I am speaking from experience so I know.
