2 Corinthians 11:4 warns us that there are false views of Jesus...
It should be our goal to be more like Jesus, but not the "Jesus" who's popular in the world.
You know the one I mean. The world's Jesus never judges anyone, never talks about sin, never says anyone deserves hell, never rebukes anyone. And this fake Jesus doesn't want Christians talking about sin either.
Did you know that people have always had false views of Jesus? Paul rebuked the Corinthians saying, "if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached ... you put up with it easily enough." 2 Corinthians 11:4
The world's Jesus is popular, but the Jesus of the Bible is hated:
“If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first." Jesus, John 15:18
The world's Jesus never makes anyone uncomfortable, but the Jesus of the Bible says, "[The world] hates me because I testify that its works are evil." John 7:7
The real Jesus spoke the truth in love but He spoke it boldly, completely, and unashamedly even though it made Him unpopular. Let's never be ashamed to do the same.
