Not too popular

In looking at all these prophets, especially Elijah, we can see that they were notoriously hard to live with. Here was a man who let his faith in God cost him something. He did not go to church once a week and give an occasional donation. His was a deep and serious descent from the popular world of his day—the world of Jezebel and Ahab, and Baal, and the rest of them. His religion was a deep, radical, grave, treasonable descent; it was treasonable, because he stood against a king, albeit a wicked king.—A.W. Tozer, Voice of a Prophet, page 82
