Church is not intended for improving your social standing

Jesus is a good person to follow, but just because you follow someone who did good things doesn’t make you any better unless you actually learn from them.

It seems idolatry is a big problem in Christianity these days.  Here’s a dramatic example:

As someone who grew up learning Christian morality but not associating with the church beyond Sunday School age, I have encountered many “Christians” through the years who aren’t thoughtful in the way I imagined devout Christians would be.

This is what led me to spend time inside and outside of church learning the story of Jesus and the teachings he shared and inspired, which has continued on into this blog you read now.
