I love ya Dani...and I don't care what you believe...that is between you and God.

I let my light shine and if you ask to have some of my light, I will share it with you otherwise I will keep my big trap shut...that's a huge lesson alot of folks could benefit from.

Talking Why the word hates the true believer

To anyone questioning why should the world hate a true christian; the answer defies logic.
You would think if someone is a good/true christian,he or she is a nice person, and so should automatically be loved by everyone. The truth is stranger than fiction. You can be the nicest person/christian but people in the world respond to you with hate and dislike.
A good example is Jesus. Many historians believe that there was truly a man by the name of Jesus Christ,who was reputed to heal the sick,the blind ,lame and even raise the dead. He even fed the poor,5000 people at one instance. What payment did He receive from the people of this world?
The whole town,multitudes,thousands may be even hundreds of thousands cried out "crucify Him!"
They wanted Jesus destroyed although Jesus had a reputation of doing good to humanity.

Why does the world hate Jesus so much? Because Jesus testified that the things done in the world are evil;hatred,thefts,adulteries/fornication,lusts,jealousy,theft,selfishness,withc raft,violence and the like. A lot of people in the world do not want to stop doing ungodly deeds. So they hate Jesus and true christians for convicting them of sin. John 7:7
A true christian does not even have to preach to them or talk about Jesus, but the lifestyle of a true christian convicts those who do not want Jesus. A true christian's lifestyle is like a letter being read.
2nd Corinthians 3: verses 2 and 3.

Imagine a true christian who does not curse with the mouth,does not drink beer or wine,does not smoke cigarretes etc,does not talk dirty or lustfully,does not practice sexual immorality,does not gossip or backbite others,speaks the trutha always; such a person is a rare jewel in this modern ,beautiful,sophisticated world. A lot of non-christians who do not practice the above morals will be uncomfortable of that Christian's presence.
The very presence of the true christian convicts those who are carnal that they need to change, and they do no like it; and so reject,hate the true believer.

And wanna be Christians hate them too because .... they see they can't remain in the world, part of the world, liked by the world and practicing, loving and desiring the things of the world; and really be a Christian.

The only thing the world hates is the self-righteousness so many "abstainers" display.

In sure some folks don't like me. But not everyone in the world. Some people actually like me.

I believe Jesus was saying that those who do not follow the world system would be hated. Those who do not "play the game" of nepotism, kissing up to the rich to get ahead -- I think this is a lot of what he meant when he said the "world would hate you". This world system does not play by fairness. It is pretty much a given that to get anywhere in political power you have to become corrupt. That's because the world system demands it. If you want power in this world you are going to have to kiss some butts and pretend to bow down to things you know are wrong.

As for the thing about smoking cigarettes written above - that has nothing to do with the world system and in fact, people who smoke are now despised by the majority of the world.

That is a lot of generalizing you have done about various groups. It sounds like you are basically saying that all the other religious and philosophical groups hate Christianity because they are God's chosen or favorite, but you do not give any thought to the fact that a lot of people actually hate Christianity because it often acts so ugly and despicable. I've never met a fundamentalist who will admit this, though.
