Because we live in a post-Christian society, there are two approaches to those who say we are nothing more than hypocrites or [insert X]: 1) yes, we are and we are sorry. The way you were treated was not right and we are sinners who need a merciful God as well…1/x
And 2) Christians should get used to being hated in a culture that has, at least in practice, roundly rejected our views and morality. Most of the time, people will utter all kinds of evil, misremembered Bible verses, and lies about the church, who she is and who she worships.2/x
So it’s possible to respond in love to those who reject us, but there will also be times when you have to be stern, corrective of false ideas spread about Christ, and stand your ground. 3/x
Remember, our Lord said we are sent out as sheep among wolves. God has not spared us the trouble of being misrepresented or hated. We must endure the way He endured. 4/x
