Some people really don't want what Jesus offers them...

I cannot allow myself to be downcast by those (a majority, perhaps; certainly a majority of the powerful, rich, influential...) who are determined to embrace damnation...

Just as Jesus (and the Beloved Disciple) were realistic about those who actually saw Jesus, heard him speak, observed his work; yet rejected him, hated him: the light 'shone in the darkness' but 'the darkness comprehended it not'; 'the world knew him not'...

Yet although this was and is a cause for regret, it was entirely what Jesus expected. The fact that it happened did not deter him.

There is no compulsion with Jesus. Free will and personal agency are necessary, real and good - and they have implications that Jesus did not deny, nor did he wish to deny them.

Jesus did what he did for those who wanted what - by his life, death and resurrection - he offered.

Here and now, you and I can do no more than did Jesus. We should do that: we should bear witness as, when and how our intuition and the Holy Ghost prompt us; but we should not be surprised at our limited degree of success...
