Description

Jesus was born into a religious heritage, in the midst of a religious society. However, he opposed and refuted religious practices, at every turn. Instead, he emphasized and demonstrated a deep spiritual connection to others and to The Almighty. Jesus didn't start a religion called "Christianity" and has no part in any religion. "They were first called Christians at Antioch" and "If any of you suffer as a Christian, he should not be ashamed but, instead, glory in that name." Religious people called them "Christ-like" because they were foolish enough to love the unlovable, to prefer the well being of others above themselves, to bring words of hope in hopeless situations and to love God in the same way Jesus demonstrated love towards God, love him to death. The qualifications for calling oneself Christ-like or Christian pale in the true light of what it means to be like Jesus, full of the spirit of God, full of compassion and dedicated to doing God's will. Without theological opinions and religious gymnastics, what did Jesus and his followers reportedly say, think, teach and live? Is it Christ-like to: rejoice over the death of another person; any person, to hate any group of people because of their practices, lifestyle, occupation, or disposition towards ourselves or others? Is it Christ-like to be prejudice, racist, hateful, murderous, vengeful, indifferent, unthankful, self-centered or religious? Read for yourself!show more
