Hostile reaction comes …

“Hostile reaction comes at the point of real difference. The real difference comes at the point of Christ-likeness. Only to the degree the world sees the nature of Christ in His followers will there be any hostile reaction.
The difference is one of nature. It is internal, not external. The Church is not to look odd; but by her transformed nature, living in a secular, self-centered world, she is odd.”

-from p.59 of “A Prophet’s Heart” by Charles Brown.
