Why are Christians hated in the world? Christians are to be loving, gracious, kind, true and so on. It is true that there can be a mark of hypocrisy on some, others may not be very Christian-like in certain realms of life, and even there are some who say they are Christ’s but live nothing like it. But to sit back with a wide lens and view how Christians in general are treated in the world may cause us to conclude that it’s not fair. So how is the Christian to live while in the world? Are we to fight this animosity with political activism? Are we to pronounce our rights and set up demonstrations? Let us examine the purpose of the Christian toward the world, and how the Christian should expect the world to react.
