How would we ensure this disrimination and hatred towards Christians ends? I agree that I would like it to end, but I also see it as a sign of the times. We are told that this hatred of Christians by the world would continue to get worse and worse as the end approached.

Matthew 24:3-13
And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

It is the message of repentance for sin that brings much of the hatred I believe. In a world that follows the message of "do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law," a message that limits desires of the flesh and points out their errors brings out an attitude against those who agree with scripture. We're thought as "high and mighty" who think we're better than anyone else. When in reality we're all in the same position, some just struggle against the flesh to live by the spirit instead of giving into every whim.

For those who believe and try to follow God's Word, tripping along the way sometimes, we cannot turn away from what we believe while those who reject it refuse to turn to it. This will always keep the children of God at odds with the children of this world.

I do believe that as Christians we need to live the Word and show how followers of Christ live their life in love, showing that the hatred of us is irrational, a witness for those around to see.

We must work together (Christians in various countries) to ensure that this discrimination and hatred towards Christians will end.
