Agreed.It is strange to me that people put themselves, their church(es) and other "Christians" above the teachings of Jesus.
While I know a number of loving followers of the teachings of Jesus who call themselves Christian, it seems they have done so IN SPITE OF "Christianity" NOT BECAUSE OF IT.
We have more or less the same ideas, but use the language a little differently. You are noting the difference between the theological side of religion, something which I have little personal interest in, and the behavioral or social aspects of it, which I care about intensely.
One's personal journey is a private matter. If you choose to believe in a god - and perhaps to call it Jesus - that's fine with me. That's how Christians define themselves, and by that definition, despite what the members of the hive say, I have no problem with Christians or Christianity. That kind of religious walk is not a problem to society, and is none of my business.
But once people begin carrying water for the church, they become a problem to the rest of us, which is very much our business. Even then, it is not the indoctrinee that is the principle problem. It's the church that keeps producing them and turning them out into the neighborhoods.
So looking back at your post, I would word the same idea with which I agreed like this:
'It is strange to me that people put their church above the teachings of Jesus. I know many followers of Christ who still love all people. They have escaped the influence of the church.'
