“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.
