The Gospel Isn't Neutral
The gospel-wielding early church sometimes earned favor with all the people, sometimes provoked rioting. They did nothing differently to receive these different responses. Meaning, they weren't warm and loving sometimes and then loudly picketing idol-makers' shops others. They believed and proclaimed the gospel and loved their neighbors. This wins some and irritates others. Gospel power will polarize.
