Why Do They Hate Us?

I don’t really know why someone thought it was necessary to do a poll to see just who were the most disliked groups in society, but the results are in. While serial killers and IRS agents still come in last, hot on their heels are evangelical Christians. Not Christians in general. Not Roman Catholics. Not all Christians, but evangelical Christians…

My response to iMonk’s article, Why Do They Hate Us?

As a Christian, my own hypocrisy and lack of love break my heart, but I am dealing with them. As Christians, we need to remember that dominion only comes through sacrificial service. That goes right back to Eden.

But the unbelievers need to remember that everything good they enjoy comes from our Christian worldview. The morality the atheists claim is ‘reasonable’ is stolen capital. They are living on our land, whether they like it or not. Unless they repent, they are squatters complaining about the room service. They are like the grass that is here today and incinerated tomorrow.

Dominion of the world by Christianity is only a matter of time. How long it takes depends upon our love and service, not votes. When the church fails to witness faithfully (Adam, Mordecai, Jews), her rule will be usurped for a time (Satan, Haman, Herod). Nothing’s changed. But the bad guys always get thrown down eventually in a victory for Christ.

We must not forget that although the gospel is not the gospel without a presentation in love, it is still an ultimatum. Those who claim a “right” to their unbelief are deluded, whatever faults they find in the church.

To those who have been hurt by Christians, judgment begins at the house of God. He will deal with His people FIRST, as He always has (just read the Bible!), but then, make no mistake, He will deal with YOU. When He does, I sincerely hope you are in Christ, or that His perfect justice brings you to Him.

Like Mordecai, we have forgotten what our weapons are. Prayer, love and sacrifice bring the powers that be tumbling down. So do apologies for the times we have wronged others. When Christians repent, the world follows. And when we are faithful in the use of these weapons, God sets His opponents upon each other. That’s the pattern. There will be ups and downs over the centuries, but we can’t lose.
