Handling Hate: How We Should Think about and Respond to Hatred Directed at Us/Our Faith in Christ

Take This To Heart

Fellowship with Christ is Offensive to the World


1: To the extent that believers identify with Christ in the world we will face real

resentment/ridicule, contempt/hatred…and this should not surprise us


2: Evangelical Christians are NOT going to win popularity contests in the world

BUT: we should not be UN-necessarily offensive in our tone, manner or timing

NOR should we be constantly on the defensive/apologetic about our convictions.
