Acts 5:29 29 Peter and the other apostles replied: “We must obey God rather than human beings! This chapter of the bible covers a lot of persistence, punishment and death, to those believing and follow the word of God. Imagine if you will growing up Jewish converting to Christianity. There were fights amongst your own people. Questioning who Jesus was and what his purpose on earth was to be. You as a follower of Jesus literally take your life in your hands to spread to the world this new order in it's infant stages. Many apostles died at the hand of people who got tired of their "rantings". It took determination, trust in God and martyrdom to make the people see, and trust in the Lord. The struggle continues today, for many. It takes, faith, determination and goodness of heart to fight the mounting evilness the world has to offer. The struggle continues.
