I just read Chuck Colson's article "What People Really Think of Us" (linked below)
'unChristian' - Prison Fellowship
A quote he references in the article said, "Many of those outside of Christianity . . . reject Jesus because they feel rejected by Christians.” Wow!
I used to argue, er..., I mean debate with a co-worker who said, "Perception is Reality." I finally had to concede that maybe "Perception was Perceived Reality."
All this makes me ask; What "Reality" of Christ do I present to others?
