He told me that he no longer believed in Jesus or the Bible. After many years of church involvement and even ministry involvement, my friend turned away from Christianity and instead decided to embrace Buddhism. His chief reason for rejecting Jesus was the hypocrisy of Jesus' people.
Such a decision always cuts us to the core. When we hear that our bad behavior has lead someone away from Jesus it stings. We want the church to do better We want to do better. However, I'm not convinced that the bad behavior of some Christians is really the reason why such people give up Jesus.
