Standing Firm for Jesus Despite Hypocrisy, Hatred, and Censorship

Judgment, Hate, Tolerance - Standing for Jesus
Some people judge and hate Christians because they claim Christians are judgmental and hateful. 

In the name of tolerance, some people insist Christian beliefs shouldn't be tolerated.  

Some people claim Christians should be silenced in order to maintain freedom of speech.

Everyday Christians are stereotyped because a few deranged people calling themselves Christians commit hate crimes.

Most genuine believers share God's truth in love.

But people still hate us (John 15:18-19). 

Many professing Christians are buckling under the pressure and rejecting God's values. But genuine believers are standing firm (Matthew 24:12-13).

If you are faithfully sharing God's truth with our lost and dying culture, you will identify with Jeremiah 20:8-9:

“The word of the LORD has brought me insult and reproach all day long. But if I say, 'I will not mention his word or speak anymore in his name,' his word is in my heart like a fire… I am weary of holding it in; indeed, I cannot.”  

Stand firm, dear Christians.
