Archbishop of York, Dr. John Sentamu described the nature of Christians in his most recent address, claiming that Christian people who are motivated by charity are thought to be 'mad' to normal society.
But I'm really not surprised. Jesus said we would be hated by the world. Most disciples were put to death for nothing more than helping the downtrodden, healing the sick, and feeding the hungry. It's no game to buy into this Christian thing. After all, who wants to live in a world where peace might reign? Who would want to see people loving God, and Loving their neighbors as themselves? Who would want to find value in the fact they were created by a creator who loves them so much, He actually came to the world to provide a life, and a life more abundantly?
I mean come on, it just sounds, well…'mad.'
