First off, I think you did a great job of identifying a lot of symptoms here in this article. It’s not by coincidence that Jesus’s greatest opposition in his time were the religious rulers of his day. However, as many other readers pointed out you don’t need to be Christian to treat one another with respect and lead a moral life. In fact, most religions teach these virtues. What makes Christianity different and the real reason behind its attractiveness is…. JESUS. A living personal relationship with Jesus is the key and only when HE is the focus do lives change and true revivals happen (both historically and today). So that is really the heart of the issue here and why in many cases “religion” has become more of a weapon of the enemy and in direct opposition of what being a CHRISTian truly means. In many ways this is just as it was when Christ walked the Earth.
