Just because you write about religion doesn’t mean you are a follower of Jesus. Jesus demands a lot of us. Jesus requires that we actually love God and love everyone we know or meet. No wiggling out of that at all.
That journalist feel free to lecture followers of Jesus about issues of morality is beyond reasonable.
For example, we are told that Muslims and Christians worship the same God. We do not. It is absurd to suggest that.
When a Christian or a journalist demands we act like Jesus and just get along with everybody, we should remind them that Jesus wrecked the Kumbaya of first-century Jewish theology by making exactly this claim about himself: He is God in human flesh.
Do Christians and Muslims worship the same god? Well, is Jesus the Messiah (Christ) God? You can’t answer “yes” to both, no matter how loudly the theologians in the media insist otherwise.
“Every journalist in America has been secretly attending seminary, and now understands Christianity better than most Christians do. This is the only conclusion I can draw after months of theology lectures from reporters whose most recent encounter with religious terminology was Hozier’s “Take Me to Church.”
