Last Article Justin and I discussed Creation of the World Genesis. This idea has been around for a while so for this week I thought we could discuss a new deck theme from Revelations of John—Martyrs.
In 1995, the Christian music group dcTalk put out a song title “Jesus Freaks” that described those who had been persecuted for their faith in Jesus. Several years later, a book was published by the same name and it told the stories of Christians worldwide who had been persecuted, and many times killed, for their faith. It is not an easy read, but it certainly helps put things in perspective. Too often, as Christians living in a country with freedom of religion, we can get caught up in things like denominational differences when around the world our brothers and sisters in Christ are risking their very lives to share the good news. If you have the chance, I highly recommend the book.
Today I’m going to preview some new cards that represent the “Jesus Freaks” of Redemption—martyrs.
If you tuned in to yesterday’s promo preview, then it should be no surprise that we’re printing the other community created card as a promo this year too. An all new version of Paul is coming to clay decks everywhere!
In case you missed the process, we had a two way tie when the community voted to choose the card we would create together. When we held a second round of voting to decide between The Watchman and Paul, the winner was decided by a single vote! Clearly the people wanted both!
