get to know the genuine jesus

If you’re turned off by Jesus, you’re probably confusing him with some ultra-conservative characterization of a TV evangelist.

First, Jesus was Jewish — not white Anglo-Saxon.

You may feel Christ emphasizes law; but the genuine Jesus emphasises love.

You may feel Christ and his followers have long lists of “do’s and don’t’s” that are preached as “Gospel.”

But the genuine Jesus has just two laws: love God and love people.

You may feel Christ emphasizes politics; the genuine Jesus emphasizes peace.

If the TV preacher spends more time attacking those who don’t follow his particular brand of theology, then he’s probably not preaching the genuine Jesus, either.

The genuine Jesus loved difference.

He also spoke of unity–not pew politics or doctrinal debates.

For me, its all about getting to know the genuine Jesus.
