When someone asks you, “Why are you so different?” – tell them “Jesus”
But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect. – 1 Peter 3:15
Although Christians are not immune to abuse and suffering, if we choose to set apart Christ as Lord, whatever disasters befall us really don’t constitute “harm” if we are devoted to doing good. The best response to any such persecution is to demonstrate our beliefs through attitude (kindness and respect) while explaining why we are different – in a word – “Jesus”.
