Because your adversary is the devil

based to  holy words which said by our  savior the Lord Jesus christ, it is normal to be one of many persecuted persons, in this world by a lot of groups which called themself churches, have been established a new ideology,   in the contrast of the Lord teach, and against the teach of the fathers of the church, while the most of them were martyrs,
nothing new for the conception of the persecution in our christian life, because our lord has declared that will be happen against his servants and his people which is the path of the holiness
(John 15:20)Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.
(Matthew 5:11) Blessed are ye, when [men] shall revile you, and persecute [you], and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake."
so, my dears in christ, do not be sad nor angry, you are in the way of the heavenly kingdom,
but you have to be angry from those who teach Such as wolves.
while Jesus confirm that our way not easy:
"Luke 10:3Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves".
 (Acts 20:29) For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous WOLVES enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
but my dears in christ remember always our Lord said to his church:
God said: "For I, the LORD your God, will hold your right hand, Saying to you, "Fear not, I will help you" (Isaiah 41 : 13)
pray to the lord all the day asking him to protect you from devil
"Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour" (1Peter 5:8)
