Ghandi said “I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. They are so unlike your Christ.”
I thought about this as I read Chuck Colson’s commentary about “liberal” Christians in the Washington Post. It isn’t enough for Colson to trash the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America for taking a rather mild position to allow bishops to take a breather when evaluating how to work with gay and lesbian clergy, he trashes mainline Christians as well, making Ghandi’s point all the more discernible.
Colson’s lack of grace also makes the scriptural admonition in 1 Peter 3 more pertinent.
