The Christian Church has taken Jesus and converted him from a man to a mythical Christ. The result has been ignorance and intolerance. The real message of Jesus was human-centered; one of compassion, love, humility and tolerance. Incredibly, anyone who supports these ideals today remains on the fringe of the Christian faith. We can choose to follow the advice of Jesus and his early followers; to find fulfillment by striving to make this world, our lives and the lives of others, what we want them to be. We need to liberate Jesus, and therefore ourselves, so that we can assume more responsibility for each other. No matter how we eventually choose to frame it, it all begins with a human connection.
