Let's Go Back to the Bible

When unbelievers object

If someone doesn’t believe the Bible and doesn’t want to hear what you might have to say about it, that’s ok. That’s on them. But wouldn’t a simple “No thank you” from them suffice? I don’t understand the vitriolic aggression that some are taking against Christians and Bible truth today. I would think that they would just walk away and leave us alone.

Look at what Jesus experienced in Nazareth after reading the Scriptures. “So all those in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath, and rose up and thrust Him out of the city; and they led Him to the brow of the hill on which their city was built, that they might throw Him down over the cliff” (Luke 4:28-29). What a violent rejection of truth! Note carefully that Jesus simply “went His way” (4:30). He didn’t retaliate or even try to force them to hear Him. He just, metaphorically, shook the dust from His feet and moved on (Mark 6:11). What a lesson for us today! People will reject our evangelistic efforts today, but their rejection is actually of Him (Luke 10:16). It’s ok to be silent and to move on.
