We will be persecuted by "the world", as Christians, meaning those who are not for Jesus Christ but who are against him. This is where the term "anti-Christ comes from. There are, however, fellow Christians who will also persecute us, which is a definition of them being "false converts to Christ", or at the least they are what the Holy Bible calls "carnally minded" people who profess Christianity but who do not actually possess the new birth in him ("...Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God" - John 3:3).

Paul said this in 2 Timothy 31-5, "This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: FROM SUCH TURN AWAY."

We never stop loving people, and we also must forgive them, so that God will forgive our sins, as believers in Jesus our Messiah (Matthew 6:15 - as stated by Jesus) but at what point do we "turn away" from people who place us at risk for developing bitterness because they constantly belittle us, insult us and cause us hurt in general, that can feel like wounds in our spirits? It needs to take place, before you do in fact feel that injury has resulted from their outrageously non-Christian like behavior, while they profess at the same time that they are your brother or sister in-Christ.

As the scripture above states: "...from such turn away..."! You do not leave such an acquaintance or relationship, with hate but instead, you forgive them and continue to pray for them, while hoping your fellowship with them can be restored in the future.

Author's Bio: 

I am a graduate of Liberty University (1996) for completion of theological studies (33 college credits) and I completed "Bible Survey" with Assemblies of God - Berean College. I consider myself a "Bapticostal" (a Baptist also having Pentecostal beliefs). Bible studies are one of my most-covered book subjects. I am however, careful to only address those subjects I believe God has given me correct revelation on. I was a Christian Youth Minister, beginning in 1983 for approximately 18 years. During, between and after youth ministries I served in other church capacities as well, including interim pastoring and retirement home ministry. MOST IMPOTANTLY, I am a redeemed man, who has received salvation by acceptance of Jesus Christ (John 3:16).
