Persecuted Church and Samuel Rutherford

To those undergoing persecution, I would like to introduce to you Samuel Rutherford.












His last words - When the monarchy was restored in 1660, it was clear that the author of Lex Rex  could expect trouble. When the summons came in 1661, charging him with treason, and demanding his appearance on a certain day, Rutherford refused to go. From his deathbed, he answered, "I must answer my first summons; and before your day arrives, I will be where few kings and great folks come." He died on 30th March 1661.
