Why American Christianity is fading

From the 'Facets' of Ken LaRive
Trying to see the face of God through the mask of man is the most difficult endeavor ever undertaken by the intellect.

To say that American Christianity is shooting itself in the foot is an understatement. What was Gandhi talking about when he said" “I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians.

Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.” In the following essay, I will try to put the essence of what Gandhi was referring to in a nutshell. Of course, from the onset, I can only scratch the surface of this accretion, as the power and force creating it has not only infiltrated Christianity, but The Faith has accepted it as norm.

I can see no way to reverse this trend, only to lay what I see on the table. Let us start with the main standard of the teaching of Jesus that most all Christians will agree with. Love one another as I have loved you. Do unto others, as you would have them do unto you.

Love your neighbor as yourself. He who is without sin cast the first stone, and he who lives by the sword will die by it. In essence, the New Testament is about Love.

It is about Jesus dying for our sins, as both man and God.
