Disconnect Between Jesus and His Church

If you were to ask people what they thought was the central tenet of Jesus Christ, most people would answer by saying things like - peace, love, forgiveness, acceptance.

If you were to ask the same people what they thought were the central tenets and theme of the church was, those same people would answer with very different answers. You'd hear things like - hypocrisy, judgment, condemnation, a place of bunch of do's and don'ts.

Why is that? Why is there such a disconnect between Jesus and the church that's supposed to be representing Him?

Christ-followers, we've got some repenting and some work to do. We need to look at ourselves honestly and ask, how does our speech, our actions, our hopes, our dreams, our motivations, our lives reflect Jesus Christ.
