Kill the messenger

Concerning the reaction against certain preachers and churches:

Since religion is such a personal and emotional thing, most people
resent anyone who seems to threaten their long-held religious beliefs.
This is particularly true when they are told that the very God they love
and worship is not the God of the Bible, but a God who has been
constructed by apostate Christians into a three-in-one God. Rather than
actually learn from the scripture itself about these important things,
most people would rather "kill the messenger."
