Can the church make you more like Jesus?
"Resemblance to Jesus" cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward
We've known amazing people in the church. We've known terrible people in the church. I think, like anything, the church can be a useful instrument for change. Either way. Good or bad.
My guess is that people are in the church as they are and religion is used as a kind of cloak for that. Religion, usually, is a superficial treatment that doesn't reach down to the core of our being to affect true and total transformation.
I think religion can assist us in that. But few allow it to.
