The World’s Most Hated Preacher

Crucifixion

Have you heard the world’s most hated preacher? No, He’s not Islam.
Though He’s Middle-Eastern. Lion-hearted. Gentle as a lamb.

He never preached a Jihad. Never cursed His enemy.
And when He died His martyr’s death He forgave foes freely.

He said that not to love one’s enemies is worse than Death.
And He showed us by example – to His final, dying breath.

He did not come as conquering king. But incarnate – to die.
His death condoned by countrymen, who shouted, ‘Crucify!’

A perfect man. The Divine Son of God. A sacrifice.
He died. He rose. He conquered death – paying the fearful price.

He offers us salvation if by faith we Him believe.
And His offer remains open. Trust Him now, His words receive.
Soon will come the Final Judgement. These days are a short reprieve…
