To those who have no understanding of the Gospel, it may seem to be a myth or a fairy-tale. However, as their understanding grows, the conviction of the truth in their hearts though the Spirit can produce several different results, e.g. anger as seen in the case of the Jews or ridicule as seen in other cases. We must not be discouraged by this, and should never be ashamed to present the Gospel as the Truth it is.
