When John the Baptist came preaching the kingdom of heaven, he also came condemning sin and urging repentance and baptism to a new life. Some responded positively, but more reacted violently, as is often true when the gospel is preached. Those who react against the gospel would destroy the kingdom of heaven if they could but must settle for destroying as many of its servants as they can. For example, John was soon put to death, as was Christ, and eventually the apostles, as well as multitudes of Christ's followers through the centuries.
