History has a long list of people who hate each other because of difference in nationality, philosophy, culture, and religion. Christians have a fair share of haters during the time of Christ. Yet, the Bible teaches to accept these haters and not reciprocate their wrong actions.

Jesus Christ, who is the perfect, sinless Son of God, was hated by the Jews even though He did a lot of good things for them. Ultimately, He was not only hated, but crucified. If you are a Christian, Scriptures say that do not be surprised if the world will hate you, too.
