Sadly so many of us Christians fail to behave as Christians in our every day lives.
So many of us fail to live the teachings of Christ and display His love for everyone by our actions.
If we all managed to live as we should as Christians then people would be delighted at what Christianity really is.
Jesus taught us to care for one another and many times we fail to do this.
Christianity is brought into disrepute by actions of some people who call themselves Christian but do not live the life of Christianity.This makes it all the more harder for us as we strive to love our neighbour and follow the teachings of Christ.
When people criticise Christians perhaps you could say that yes many Christians have made mistakes as have many people from all walks of life But many Christians are working hard to help others in their lives to bring the message of good news that Christ taught us.Many Christians do many good works and dedicate their lives to helping those in need.
We are human and not perfect we are going to make mistakes all we can do is keep trying to follow the wonderful teachings of Jesus.
