By design, the world is against Christians, and moving that way faster all the time. My point is the hate for Christianity is based in irrationality. (mahatma gandhi btw)
Thanks for the correction, didn't think I had that right...oops.
I agree with you about the world being against Christians, but to take it further it is against man.
Men were designed to be cultivators, the Bible is clear that all which man is to cultivate will rise up against him...including his fellow man.
A side point to this, I feel one of the main issues with the world today is that men are cultivating all the wrong things...or in some cases nothing at all...they don't even know what it means to be a man or how that is played out.
Instead of cultivating a relationship with God, a women, a family we have filled it with sports, video games, porn, booze, alcohol etc...
I have heard the old saying "the greatest trick the devil every pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist" I say bullshit.
There is so much evil it is clear the devil (what ever that is to you) is here...his greatest trick IMO is keeping you just happy enough never to do anything with your life or to keep you just sad enough so you don't take action within your life...they lead to the same place...a numbing existence somewhere b/w joy and pain....
