One thought before I go to bed. About Jesus.
I am SO sorry for, and SO ashamed by, the reputation that Christians have given themselves.
Seriously, we commit some hideous acts in the name of Jesus Christ… And it’s the most embarrassing and horrible thing, really, because it’s exactly the opposite of what we claim to be, or are supposed to be.
And I just want to say, to any of you out there, who have been wronged by one of us, that I whole-heartedly apologize. I am so, so, so sorry for the pain we have caused you.
I only hope that each of you will somehow understand that just because some Christians are jerks, doesn’t mean that Christ himself is a jerk. And it doesn’t make the commandments he spoke of (love, understanding, forgiveness, righteousness) any less real or wonderful.
Honestly, being a Christian is the most spectacular and important part of my entire life. I am not in love with Christians, at all. But I am in love with Christ.
I am not ashamed of the God I worship at all.
It’s some of those who claim to be His spokespeople that I am ashamed of.
