John 15:18 "If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you." We live in a society that is becoming increasingly hostile toward Christians and biblical Christianity. Believing in biblical views of sexuality, gender, race, marriage and marital roles, government, judicial systems, etc. lead those around us to label us … Continue reading I Hope to be Hated
John 11:35 "Jesus wept." As a young man, I used to use this verse as a joke to prove I memorized verses. It was not until I became a man that I realized how amazing this verse is.
