Why are Christians jerks?
If Jesus is so great, why are some of His followers such jerks?
Unfortunately, many people have suffered cheating, lying, hating, or seen and heard of church leaders running off with a secretary. All Christians are imperfect. People set a high standard for us. It is up to us to back up our talk with our lives. Often we do not.
Much of the New Testament is written to correct bad behavior. The only perfect Christian was Jesus Christ. He lived up to His words and yet He was falsely accused and crucified. Why? Because He loved imperfect people. He died in the place of imperfect people (all of us) who deserved to be sent to hell. He died so anyone who placed their trust in Him as their Savior could be forgiven and be saved by grace. Imperfect but forgiven.
