We have taken a Gospel with such a simple and powerful meaning and turned into this complex soap opera like game show that not even the contestants can easily understand anymore, and then we sit there and wonder why people don’t like us. News flash: It’s not because we’re the salt of the earth, it’s because we come across as self-righteous bigoted jerks. We have done such a huge injustice to the world. We see illness, poverty and sin and they make us feel uncomfortable, but instead of loving people as God has loved us we hide behind verses and laws so that we don’t have to deal with it. We sit around and criticize people when in reality we should be loving them.
