When the Truth is told back then and today:
Acts 7:51 Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye.
57 Then they cried out with a loud voice, and stopped their ears, and ran upon him with one accord
People hate the truth because if they read the truth in the Bible, it would change their hearts and they wouldn’t be able to continue living their “best lives now”.
For believers of the Truth (Jesus Christ), our best life isn’t on this battlefield taking souls POW to the lake of fire. It’s spreading the Gospel to give people the alternative eternal destination called: Heaven.
