I have noticed a vast difference…
A vast difference between being a Christian and being a follower of Jesus. Most people have an amazingly positive response towards Jesus, but when you ask them about Christians, well…the response is a mixed bag at best.
Take a moment and experiment with me. Launch a google search with the phrase, “why are Christians so…”
You will get page after page with responses like: “why are Christians so angry, mean, judgmental, hypocritical, hateful…” It takes a number of pages before you find a more positive response.
Here are the first 3 page that came up on my search which neted over 37 million hits:
In light of who Jesus is, how He interacted with all types of people, and how He modeled love on steroids, one might expect His followers to have the same impact, or leave a similar aroma with people, but the google results are in, and it isn’t favorable.
I am looking forward to the first conversation in my new series “What If?” where we will major on becoming more like Christ and less like the Google results!
