Psalm 119:51 KJV | Psalms, Psalms quotes, Psalm 119

The proud have had me greatly in derision: yet have I not declined from Jesus. I never dreamed that I would see the day when people would mock God as much as I have seen happening today. The recent protests started out with a cause for Black Lives Matter but now there’s a twist to all of that. Protesters have distorted a good cause and turned it into lunacy. Everything good is being defaced and trashed. And everything sinful is being lifted up and supported.

Noah Webster’s 1828 Dictionary defines derision as:


  1. The act of laughing at in contempt.
  2. Contempt manifested by laughter; scorn.
    I am in derision daily. Jer 20.
  3. An object of derision or contempt; a laughing-stock.
    I was a derision to all my people. Lam 3.

Christians are being mocked in so many ways. Even the local governments are trying to destroy Christianity. California’s Gov. Newsom is bent on causing as much trouble as possible to churches in his state. However, he lost the battle to Pastor John McArthur! God is still in control, amen?

Dear reader, as Christians we will see more and more derision in the coming months. We will be made fun of and mocked. However, be prepared to stand up for Christ and be ready to share the Gospel. Most certainly we will be ridiculed, but it’s a small price to pay for the price that Christ paid for our salvation, amen?

1 Pet 3:15  But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:
