Why Are Christians Afraid To Follow Jesus?


Once again, the Christian mainstream has turned it's back on the image of God. "...Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me ..." .A brief history: • 1830: mainstream Christians do nothing to stop the removal of the Five Civilized Tribes from 20 million acres of ancestral homelands. •1939: The St Louis carrying 937 Jewish refugees is denied entry into the United States and forced to return to Europe. 254 of the passengers die in the Holocaust as a result. • 2015:Christians turn their backs on thousands of Syrian refugees.

    Pete: PEW Study=Christians 70.6% n US! Consider source:Ronnie (Jewish-American) observing "Christians" n US.

    FACT: TRUTH re: "Christians" n US=Hypocrites ("...they aren't shouting it from the rooftops...")!

    "Hope this makes sense."

    The fact that you see no practical value in my question is to your own detriment. But I do have the answer to your rhetorical question. I am perhaps the first in over a thousand years to answer correctly: More than you could count in a lifetime.

    There is truth in your words, but much of what you have said does not apply. This is not directed toward the government, or toward the secular community, or the atheists, or any other religion. Only those pretending Jesus.

    Eric:The "Image of God" is in Scripture-It is Written! Urs should be the same as mine, if Christ dwells in U! Ronnie is RIGHT! If "personal," why should we be "ON ONE ACCORD?" If U don't follow Jesus' WORD, who do U serve? Why UR Jesus v Mine?

    gc,Agreed. The deception began in earnest with Constantine who injected materialism into the faith. Historical record shows Christianity in U.S. as commonly practiced is a perversion of the gospel.

    You have displayed a lack of reading comprehension. The question has nothing to do with "sole" responsibility, but Christian hypocrisy over the last 200 years. Jesus has determined the relationship. Your threats are meaningless. I do not fear death.

    A very interesting take on man as a whole, quite applicable I believe. Our homogenousness makes us fall short. But sometimes we get it right as a soul and as a group of souls. Rhetorical question at best.

    This topic concerns Christian hypocrisy.To answer : A man can pick up a guitar and learn how to play on his own. But I am a professional guitarist. The man that I teach will learn more. No need to re-invent the wheel when Jesus is perfection.

    Are you aware that to 'go through the system' takes about ten years? In that ten years you have no country, no home, no one wants you, all you have is your culture! It's the only thing that keeps you sane! Many do take citizenship when they c

    From the perspective of a Christian, fear is no excuse. This is why they are held to a higher standard. If you believe in eternal life, and the promise of salvation, you do not allow the fear of death to shape your destiny.

    There were no Christians during Leviticus. Only after Jesus.Jesus didn't burn people, or put them to death. Christians have never started one war. Only the pretenders. Yes, the earth will be purged. Do U eat rotten fruit and spoiled meat?

    I agree. If they're afraid of anything, it's the possibility that they might have to spend a little money. The terrorist threat is a convenient excuse.

    I agree. It is ironic that so many so-called "educated " people do not believe in the devil, or a dark force in the world, as the devil clearly believes in them.

    Yes, a difference. The fireman who walks into the burning building to save a child is following Jesus; placing his own life in the hands of God to save another. There is no greater love. The world believes Jesus lives only in a book. Very stupid men.

    Your understanding is superior. We cannot fashion Jesus in our own image. We do not have the option to love one child and not another. Nor can we accept love and not return it. We cannot forsake the image of God as a matter of convenience.;

    I think that that is wonderful Ronnie. Perhaps just by chance you and I share the image of God as pure love. I wish more Christians had that view also. Other than the Vatican "Holy See" is their a nation of Christianity? I might move there.

    It s a myth that terrorists would need to "sneek" in with the refugees. If they exist they are already here. But this is about Christian hypocrisy. My people were not terrorists in 1830. The Christians desired the land more than Jesus. It is evil.
