I just watched a trailer for a movie called “Lord, Save us from your followers” and it made me think about the image so many people in America have of Christians. It’s not that people look at us and think we’re fanatics or crazy… It’s WHO is looking at us and thinking that. I started thinking about Jesus, and his short time on earth. When he was here, people thought he was crazy, but think about who it was who thought that. It wasn’t the homeless, or poor, or even the middle class. Heck, it wasn’t even the
rich people. The ones who attacked Jesus were the religious leaders. Now let’s look at America. Who looks at christians like we’re crazy? It tends not to be the religious, but instead it’s those people that would have flocked to Jesus if he were here himself….
Aren’t we supposed to be like Jesus? Why aren’t they flocking to us like the did Him?
Think about it.
When did Jesus pass a homeless person and look the other way?
When did Jesus see a prostitute on a street corner and turn around?
When did Jesus protest against gays, or abortion, or any number of things we protest?
When did Jesus scream at sinners and tell them they were going to Hell?
When did Jesus act like us?
Maybe if we want to reach people the way Jesus did, we need to stop following other christians, and instead just follow Christ.
