What Jesus never said

What Jesus never said July 17, 2017

“I will be hated by everyone because of those Christians over there.”

What He said was: “You will be hated by all on account of My name.”

I’ve noticed a trend of late.  Well, not of late.  It’s always a temptation to look at other believers and assume they’re the problem with the Church.  I just notice it’s becoming popular for some to constantly bemoan how ‘those others’ are messing with all the love Jesus should be getting.

This isn’t to say we can’t call out those who have sinned or are in error.  In fact we should, in a spirit of gentleness in order to restore him or her.  Just remember that for each finger we point at others, at least two or three can be pointed back at us.

If we are worried about presenting a ‘bad witness’ to the Faith, the best place to start is ourselves.  Make sure we’re not the ones placing a stumbling block.
