Can The World Be Unaware It Hates Us?

Hi S____,
Thank you for your words of encouragement and gratitude. They mean more to me than you know.

You ask if it is possible that the world is not aware that it hates us, and you say you have not been evil spoken of, as far as you are aware. The answer is, yes it is possible that you can be hated by people who don’t know exactly what it is they hate about you, but believe me when I tell you that if ever they become aware of the depth of your dedication to loving your enemies or of not resisting evil or not believing in eternal hell or not believing in a trinity or a thousand other truths of God’s word, then they will know why they hate you.
In time, if we are faithful to what we know to be true, then we become known for what we believe and how we live, because there in no way to be a child of light in a dark world and not be noticed and hated. But being hated is also being a witness, and loneliness and being separated from our brothers is our calling.

Gen 49:26  The blessings of thy father have prevailed above the blessings of my progenitors unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills: they shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him that was separate from his brethren.
Mat 10:22  And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

Your brother in Christ,
