Why the World Hates Jesus

“The world cannot hate you, but it hates Me because I testify of it that its works are evil.” –Jesus, in John 7:7

The world hates Jesus because Jesus represents to them a condemnation of their evil works.

The world wants a Jesus of their imagination. A Jesus that does not tell them that what they are doing is wrong or evil.

The favorite Bible verse of the sinner who does not want to turn from his or her evil ways is: “Don’t judge me.”

The world wants a Jesus who will not tell them that they are doing bad things.

That is not the Jesus of the Bible.

This is why there are false Christs.

People invent them.

—Curtis Smale


  1. Except. . .the world doesn’t “hate” Jesus. Most admire him and his message (maybe not so much his “followers”). Even many of us who once had faith but no longer believe continue to have a deep respect for him and even try to live the compassionate life he taught. I know that probably won’t be enough for some believers who feel “worship” is everything and the rest of us are hell-bound for a spiritual spanking.


    • Good point in the first part, Chris. But read some of my other posts. Believing in Jesus is for the forgiveness of sins, not just to be a “good person.” And true Christian spirituality is to rely on Him spiritually, not just do certain outward actions.
