  • I think it says that Christians (or perhaps people in general) should strive to be more like Jesus. Not in the sense of worshipping him, but actually following his example: reforming social structures that need to be changed, feeding the hungry, helping people in need, sacrificing themselves to do so if need be. Not many people are willing to do that.

  • I believe in a lot of cases, it is true. A lot of Christians don't act as they should act. I am Christian and I strive to do what is right. I may not always do what is right, but I try to do my best.

  • Definitely true. For many, the label "Christian" is just that... a label. It doesn't compel them to actually try to follow Christ's example.

  • Fairly accurate. I know more non-christians who are christ like, than those who claim the religion. *shakes head*

  • I think its pretty accurate.

    Christ was a selfish, kind individual who didnt judge,etc but those who claim to follow him tend to be the opposite.
