    Jesus was persecuted , He was reviled ,and all manner was spoken against Him falsely : The religious leaders did it in thinking they were upholding God in their accusations toward Jesus : Jesus was walking in God's will : and so for us who walk in God's will : religious people will do the same toward us . We are a Blessed people : even though we get knocked down for it.

    It doesn't because jesus already knew what was coming.

    I must say I thank god for the affliction that may come my way. My afflictions makes my walk with the Lord much stronger. The lord never said this walk would be easy. If they persecuted Jesus what makes us any different?
  • Lu2677
    C-Dub, You make a very broad statement by saying "we" forget about what Jesus says. And "we"go straight to what Paul teaches. How do you know that "we" do this?
    Furthermore, Paul was saved, he preached the cross, he lived and died for Jesus, he encourages all in the faith in his letters that scripture gives us, and pointed out their errors. Paul gives us wholesome words.
