This Chick-fil-A issue brings some verses in the Bible to mind. You have heard the saying that to find the real issues in politics just “follow the money”. Well when it comes to the unbelieving world just “follow the hate”.
Jesus foretold believers that the world would hate them and it is a “proof of the truth of the text” of the Bible when we see the reaction to Chick-fil-A’s stance on their belief in the Bible and its teaching on marriage. No discrimination against anyone, just sharing their beliefs without harm.
It is amazing how a group that claims that their belief system is built upon tolerance have no tolerance. Not only do they have no tolerance, they actually lose their composure in the heat of their hate…Jesus said they would over two thousand years ago.
Jn 15:18 “If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you. Jn 15:19 If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Jn 15:20 Remember the word that I said to you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they kept my word, they will also keep yours.
