What’s not to like about the life of Jesus? “The word became flesh and dwelt among us and we beheld His glory…” (John 1:14).
The fleshly life of Jesus was GLORIOUS! His life on earth is the perfect expression love. His whole life was a living sacrifice to God and in the end He was willing to die on the cross so that we could be saved.
We are to follow His example. In our class we plan to (1) observe how Jesus lived and then (2) challenge ourselves to be like Him, as we are commanded. We hope you will join us!
There is a popular book entitled, “They Like Jesus, But Not The Church” and I believe the sentiments have some merit. But we can’t dismiss the church – the church is a part of God’s plan. But the real goal of Christianity is to make us like Jesus. If we are truly “like Christ” all of our duties (including church) will naturally fall into place.
Question: What is the appeal of the “we like Jesus but not the church” movement?
