As someone who loves to follow Jesus, I am always shocked at those that still appear to hate Him today. In my eyes, they are either ignorant or evil or both. I understand that people will tend to believe whatever they are told growing up by those they trust and there really is no reason to change whatever faith you have just because someone tells you something different unless you believe that Jesus is the Christ in your heart. That’s something that the spirit will convict those who are Children of God no matter what they have been taught by man, hence conversions.
I fully understand those that ignore the teachings of Christ because they were taught something similar in a different religion. They were taught about love and self-control and the like and don’t believe that Jesus was the Son of God, born to save the world. That’s between them and God. I have the problem with those that feel a need to insult, harm or murder those that don’t think just like them, especially those who believe in Jesus as their Lord and Savior even though this has always been a pattern of the non-believers since Christ walked the earth.
I grew up hearing about the saving Grace of Jesus Christ but many did not. We are supposed to spread the Word and I am pretty sure the Gospel of Jesus Christ has now been spread throughout the world, but it is up to each person to decide what they will do with their life and to take heed when the spirit tries to get their attention. Sometimes it’s hard to hear Him over all the bling.
