How do you handle people who hate you because of your religion but make no effort to understand you?


Too many times people make assumptions about a person.

    And, too, perhaps it is someone's race, culture / sub-culture, politics, social status, lifestyle, and more. I tend toward agreement regarding the view expressed with "Hatred is an attempt to control you" and "Anger is a form of emotional control".

    Amen! How can we "let it shine" if we "hide it under a bush?" Therefore, whether "hated" or not, we are called to "Teach!"

    All think Jesus was ALL love, but notice His reaction to those selling in the temple?(Matt 21:12-13) "Truth" = Heb 4:12!

    Truth always wins! Even for unbelievers, what's done in dark, will come to light so one can't "run" from "truth!" It will be revealed! As a parent forewarns children, so has/will GOD through people. Acts 17:11

    What happened to listening & "searching the Scriptures to see if those things are so?" (Acts 17:11)

    Don't "miss" re: "preconceived ideas!" This is a "Growth" process (II Cor 3:18) not complacent!
