An out-and-out Christian will often be disliked but, if he is made a mock of, there will be a soupcon of awe and respect even in the mockery.  Half-and-half Christians get, and richly deserve, the curled lip and sarcasm of a world that knows when a man is in earnest, and knows when he is an incarnate sham. – Alexander Maclaren (1826-1910), from a meditation on Luke 14.28.
