I here people say Christians are hypocrites, Christians are this Christians are that... there are people hypocritical people in every religion. The church I go to people are far from hypocrites and are bible believing christians. So why do people hate christians. I spread love and the truth of the gospel
Maybe they don't hate us maybe they hate Jesus... if we acted like the world I'm sure they would like us but we don't.
So why do you guys hate christians? Why do you hate Jesus? But your perfectly fine with Muslims, catholics, jews etc

They don't Christians because the Old Adam within hates Christ. There need not be a rhyme, reason, or logic to it. Spiritual hatred is irrational. Always has been. It's an emotional impulse, leading to a decision. It cannot be defeated with reason alone, largely because it is irrational and proud.
Many here, particularly @Jacquesvol, are guilty of listing false moral equivalencies, historical revisionism, prejudice, propaganda, bad run-ins with specific individuals who have disappointed them either legitimately or via twisted reasoning, etc. as reasons to not like Christians. But in the end, they are all missing the point entirely with these excuses.
It has nothing to do with these problems, for they are not "Christian" problems but human problems. It has everything to do with the human will.
In the prideful and non-regenerate, the idea of being subjugated to the will of He whom the Old Adam in the Flesh irrationally detests above all things is the single most offensive gesture there is. It is hair-pulling-out, screaming, running-into-walls levels of offensive to the Human Inheritance.
And that is why, no matter what, the unsaved and unregenerate will treat any who are subjugate to Him with hesitance or suspicion at best, and with thermonuclear hatred at worst.
Your asking of the question implies that a fair, logical source can be rooted out. That if you somehow do something differently, you can get an unregenerate spirit to like you. But without the Holy Spirit's influence, any attempt at a popularity contest is futility.
There is no appeal to reason that can stop the hate. There has to be a conquest of spirit. A surrender of will. And the strength to do it has to come from outside the individual. Just as you cannot will your dinner into existence via wishful thinking, neither can you force yourself without outside help to develop an inner New Man that has any power whatsoever to battle the state you default to upon conception.
Because every time your parents told even a little white lie before you were conceived, you were part of them. Left and right hand are both guilty of the same crime, no matter who swiped. So your Inheritance is what it is.0
