Jesus – king of hate? By Hal Lindsey

Hal Lindsey says, "To Christians, Jesus Christ is the Savior of the World, the King of Kings, and the Lord of Lords. We especially believe that He is the Prince of Peace. However, to the unbelieving world, the religion He founded is a litany of hatred that some have even labeled genocidal." Christians are accused of "hatred" for being Islamophobic and targets of "hate crimes" because of opposition to homosexual behavior.

Jesus predicted that the hate against Christians would be irrational, because it is supernaturally inspired. This all fits into the scenario Jesus and the Prophets predicted would happen in the last days.

Jesus said that shortly before His return, "They will deliver you up to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations on account of My name. " All around us, we are seeing what He predicted: "If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you, 'A servant is not greater than his master. ' If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My word, they will keep yours also. But all these things they will do to you for My name's sake, because they do not know Him who sent Me."

The world is now falsifying the meaning of Christianity to justify its hatred of Jesus Christ and His followers. Jesus explained why: "And this is the basis of judgment, that the light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the light; for their deeds were evil. For everyone who does evil hates the light, and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed" (John 3:19).
