Powerful verse. Matthew 5:11 11 "Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Luke 21:17 17 All men will hate you because of me. Matthew 10:22 22 All men will hate you because of me, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. These verses really stood out to me. Lately I've lost alot of friends because of the path I choose. Which is hard, but something I was willing to do. Seems like whenever religion is brought up now a days peoples defenses go up and there minds begin to be very closed. I personally don't mind discussing with people other religions, even those who are atheists have talked to me about my faith and questioned me. As long as they stay respectful, its always a good discussion.
