(J. C. Philpot, "Faith's Standing-Ground" 1862)

"And everyone will hate you because of your
 allegiance to Me." Luke 21:17

Professors of religion have always been the 
deadliest enemies of the children of God. 

Who were so opposed to the blessed Lord as the 
Scribes and Pharisees? It was the religious teachers 
and leaders who crucified the Lord of glory!

And so in every age the religionists of the day 
have been the hottest and bitterest persecutors 
of the Church of Christ. 

Nor is the case altered now. The more the children 
of God are firm in the truth, the more they enjoy its
power, the more they live under its influence, and
the more tenderly and conscientiously they walk in
godly fear, the more will the professing generation 
of the day hate them with a deadly hatred.
