It doesn’t get much better than this…
“When the saving gospel of Jesus Christ is doing its job, it doesn’t gather unbelieving admirers like Gandhi and Jefferson: it offends people (John 6:61; Luke 7:23). The Cross, in its day, was scandalous. It was a “stone of stumbling” and a “rock of offense” (Romans 9:33; 1 Peter 2:8). Today that Cross still cuts across people’s path, either to draw them to Christ or to turn them away. And many don’t like it.”
“I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ” ~Mahatma Gandhi
The Indian mystic Mahatma Gandhi was not a Christian, but he was an admirer of certain teachings of Jesus. As was the deist Thomas Jefferson. Like his neighbors, Jefferson read the Bible; but when he stumbled upon sections he didn’t like, he took a pair of scissors, cut out the disagreeable parts, and read on, thereby creating his own “holy,” abbreviated version of Scripture.
