Still more, the hour is coming, when anyone who kills you will claim to be serving God; they will do this,
because they have not known the Father or me. I tell you all these things now so that, when the time comes,
you may remember that I told you about them. I did not tell you about this in the beginning, because I was with you.
The proclamation of the Good News is never going to be an easy task.
There remains a real and undeniable antagonism between the world and Jesus.
And it’s something that cannot simply be glossed over or swept under the rug.
No, it is real, and the more realistic we are about our prospects of being welcomed and accepted by the world,
the more we shall become effective instruments of its reconciliation with God.
