The burning hatred

It is something that has plagued Christendom. Here is an example:
Patzia, The Making of the New Testament, 158
“Nero fastened the guilt and inflicted the most exquisite tortures on a class hated for their abominations, called Christians by the populace. Christus, from whom the name had its origin, suffered the extreme penalty during the reign of Tiberius at the hands of one of our procurators, Pontius Pilatus, and a most mischievous superstition, thus checked for the moment, again broke out not only in Judaea, the first source of the evil, but even in Rome… Accordingly, an arrest was first made of all who pleaded guilty: then, upon their information, an immense multitude was convicted, not so much of the crime of firing the city, as of hatred against mankind.”
As we know Nero framed the Christians for the burning of Rome. He proceeded to use their persecution as a source of entertainment for the masses. With the rise of ISIS this type of “entertainment” is on the rise once again. We are also seeing this starting to be played out by the behavior of those within groups like the “Antifa” in the United States.
A hatred that has been fed and manipulated by those that wish to remove God from this country. Through the removal of it from the schools and public venue.
The real problem though is that most of those that call themselves “Christian” also are contributing to this hatred. Why? Because they do not truly live a Christian live nor even attempt to try too. However in their eyes they are “Christian,” not realizing they are actually causing and creating the hatred because of their hypocrisy.
