“I follow Jesus.”
There are a lot of people in the world who would easily say that statement is true of them.
They go to church, read their Bible, try to be a good person and stay away from anything on the “big sins” list. They denounce the hypocritical and judgmental version of religion for a more loving God. They adamantly admit that Jesus is the top priority in their lives. They give to the poor, call out intolerant people, and pride themselves on loving people to the point of never making them feel uncomfortable.
Surely, they follow Jesus.
Or do they?
