Maybe the wrong words here for unbelievers, non christians those not born again.
You have seen here  much written about having patience and empathy etc . Yet sometimes when the sword swings the other way , the approach Jesus had is necessary and the way He spoke to the pharisees is needed.

There's so much hypocrisy from a variety whether they are religious unbelievers who go to church, or are atheists.

Truth hurts sometimes.  How you use your sword of truth makes the difference.  Is it right to use as an offensive weapon or a defensive one?

Sadly there are many who see the true gospel of Jesus as offensive.

I'm looking at why and there are a lot of misunderstandings sometimes, that need a gentle approach.

Yet something I see a lot is because of arrogance. In not coming into the true light and not seeing the genuine love offered when its blatantly clear from Christians and with prejudice tar this with the same brush as religious hypocrisy. Like they do with Christ.

When nothing could be further than the truth.
something that is true about the whole human race is that we all cover our faults, deny them, bury them and deflect them onto others. Yet when we are honest about them, in the light we are convicted not condemned.
I see so much of what is accused of others in people themselves. If someone is very unreasonably falsely accused and without grounds, then its usually about the person giving the accusation. That's when its deflected and not coming into the light, for their words, deeds and heart intention is exposed.

How would you handle this if someone at work was constantly putting others down and totally unreasonable and eaten up with bitterness and hatred and that it created problems for themself like a vicious circle.

I would tell them just that.

I have also challenged bullying managers too.  Could be the Pope or Queen...I wouldn't care.  If I see something going on that is 'wrong'...my mouth can't keep shut about it.

What I really find abhorrent is the theory of survival of the fittest ,behind the evolutionary theory, that many atheists believe. They make an attack on what is genuinely of God and tar it with the same brush as religion. Yet they are religious themselves. Atheism is a religion.

Dawkins called the survival of the fittest the selfish gene. Like tread down the weak, the vulnerable and the humble to get what you want , with no consideration for them. They believe the strong survive and the weak perish.

Its like blow the needy, disadvantaged and the humble and let the arrogant and those wise in their own sight thrive. Utter utter selfishness ,callousness and downright nasty.
With intention of wanting to persecute and hurt genuine kindness from God and His people, walking all over them.

Well satan bites the heel but the feet of God will crush him down.

so different from God who is love and came in humility and His strength is perfected in our weakness. And the meek shall inherit the earth,

Hiding in air raid shelter now! lol
Disturb us Lord, when we are too pleased with ourselves. When our dreams have come true because we dreamed too little. When we arrived safely because we sailed too close to the shore. Disturb us Lord, to dare more boldly. To venture on wider seas. Where storms will show your mastery; Where, losing sight of land, we shall find the stars. We ask you to push back the horizons of our hopes; And to push into the future, in strength, courage, hope and love.                     (SIR FRANCIS DRAKE 1577)

I'm seeing many non christians as associating Jesus with how the Pharisees expected Him to be, in the coming messiah. They connect Him to religion when nothing could be further than the truth. Even when they have experienced true born again believers.
