You are the reason why people hate Christians!
Over and over again I have heard people say, "People like you are the reason people hate Christians!" or "All those people do is make people hate Christians." However, here is what the Bible says:
"If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you." - John 15:18
"If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you." - John 15:19
"I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world." - John 17:14
"Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you." - 1 John 3:13
So, in reality the real person who is responsible for people hating Christians is JESUS. If you ever say to anyone, "YOU are the reason why people hate Christians," that statement will only be true if you are talking to Jesus.
"And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake." - Luke 21:17
