...If only his followers were more like him.
The title of this is part of a quote from Ghandi, "I like this Jesus, if only his followers were more like him."
How does love and forgiveness get twisted into judgment and hatred? I so often feel embarrassed to call myself a Christian because of what I see people do in the name of Christ. Jesus ate with the tax collectors, he didn't bang them over the head with the Torah. Jesus lived with the people who were down and out, he didn't just look upon them and say that they got what they deserved.
So many people claim to be Christian and then go out and act in totally unchristian ways.
