How hard can that be?
I know there is “none so blind as those who will not see” and that is the only reason I can think of that anyone would not recognize the Son of God. Is it their own fault? Yes. They do not have a heart for God. They only see what they wish to see.
Jesus said that people hated him because He removed the cloak from their sins. He was right and those that try to say Jesus was a liberal couldn’t be more wrong. He told people to “sin no more” and some listened because it was done out of love. Just because you have an urge to do something does not mean you should do it. It does not mean you were “born that way.” Having an urge to do something does not make it right and it is just about the worst reason to act on it. I am shocked and ashamed of the media craze to “do your own thing” regardless of what that is. Except public prayer or something horrible like that.
Does this mean that all those who do not recognize Jesus are evil? Obviously they would be easy marks for the evil one to puppet around. If you walk around with a “house well swept” and you do not fill it with the Word, the truth, you risk being taken over by any kind of influence our society offers. If there is no “good” inside of you, what’s there? Who do you serve? Humans are very easily influenced, but few are attracted to being good, doing the right thing or some other “sissy” sign of weakness.
People have long mocked and had contempt for good people and Jesus was the best. If you don’t love Him because you know who He is, you usually hate Him for the same reason.
