The Gospel will never be “Popular”

The message of the gospel will never be popular in the world because “the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness….unto the Jews [it is] a stumbling block, and unto the Greeks foolishness….” (1 Corinthians 1:18,23).

Furthermore, rather than drawing the multitudes to Christ by example, Scripture states, “…all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution” (2 Timothy 3:12).

Jesus declared, “If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you” (John 15:18-19).
