Christianos means "Christ-follower." How the use of that word has changed since Luke first used it in Acts 11:26. Now it is largely a generic term for anyone associated, however loosely, with the religion of that name. Far be it from any "Christian" to suffer for that name today, as we have become a religious country-club rather than extensions of God's power for salvation.
That is exactly why Christians have historically suffered for Christ’s name; the world doesn’t want to be saved, and would rather kill anyone who stands between them and perdition.
Would I be willing to suffer or die for Christ’s Name? I’d like to think so, but as I’ve seldom even been ridiculed for it, I honestly don’t know. Personally, I’d prefer to avoid even viewing pictures depicting Christians suffering and dying for their Lord, but that’s a preference of my residual fleshly nature, which, I pray, my Savior will eventually eradicate as He continues my sanctification. If that process takes me toward torture and death, I pray for His Holy Spirit to uphold me through it.
One thing I know with certainty: God is faithful.
