Does Our Town See Us as a Threat?

Some Jews in Thessalonica did not like the message Paul preached. Therefore, they stirred up opposition from the town against Paul and his fellow preachers. The mob sought for the preachers, but could not find them (Acts 17:5). Look what the violent mob did instead and what they said about the preachers and the church, “But when they did not find them, they dragged Jason and some brethren to the rulers of the city, crying out, ‘These who have turned the world upside down have come here too'” (Acts 17:6).
The opposers were right. The preachers and the church did turn the world upside down, and the world has never been the same since.
I wonder, could I be accused of doing that? Could you be accused of such activity? Could the same charge be made against your and mine church? If not, what can we do about it to make such an indictment against us true?
