Gandhi said, “I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.”

This is something I read long ago and was intrigued by the statement…enough so that I researched it and spoke with people of different denominations and of different faiths. Some became holier that Christ himself; others were more open to the idea that much is twisted to suit the “faithful.” Many said, with sadness, that many “Christians” do much to push people away from Jesus with their smug attitudes and turned backs…

Few actually follow the teachings of Christ. They are more concerned with twisting his beautiful words into their delusions of being righteous. No wonder the word righteous became on par with a cursing/swearing…

A few ruin it, the grace to be found in Pure Love. Judge and shun others who have a more joyful and hopeful belief in genuine love and loyalty.

Be like me or be bad…ignorant words spoken with hidden hate and sneers.

Christ-like, indeed.
