I believe it to be a great mistake to present Christianity as something charming and popular with no offense in it....We cannot blink at the fact that gentle Jesus meek and mild was so stiff in his opinions and so inflammatory in his language that he was thrown out of church, stoned, hunted from place to place, and finally gibbeted as a firebrand and a public danger. Whatever his peace was, it was not the peace of an amiable indifference.

Absolutely!! I always wonder when someone, (OK usually liberal folk) talk about this tender, loving, sweet, touchy feely Jesus, if they have actually READ the Gospels!

Well, the lib'rals are partially right...Jesus is gentle, but is also a lot of other "things" as well.

This is the Jesus I have come to know and love- I know where He stands. There is none of this wishy-washy business. How else could Christianity have survived?
