Men have used the things of God for their own purposes. It was one of the main things Jesus Christ fought against. Some of the thing you have pointed out have some validity. I believe Jesus himself would agree with you on some of your points. People in general (not just Christians) are self centered, money hungry, and not really all that concerned with those around them who are not friends or relatives. People (not just Christians) are inconsistent, and hypocritical and often prejudice and bigoted. I don't know if I have met too many that couldn't own some of this.
The problem...why do Christians get the bad rap? Because, you go to church and in many churches people wear masks. Some of them are not real (of course that goes for non Christians as well). But, when they claim a higher standard of living...point fingers and do not live a life of love and giving...welp that is when other people fight back. Then you have man made systems around the things of God...things used to control power and money....things Jesus fought against. People SHOULD buck against that as well. People of faith should buck against these systems of control and fear.
So, lloyd I would imagine you have judged me according to some prejudice you have in your head. I would bet there is much we can agree on.
Personally, I don't negate what I believe to be truth because people have tried to warp it....because many don't live it....because many are too sick to rise out of these man made systems. I think it's important to realize who you are truly angry with, instead of painting broad brushed strokes on a whole group of people.
That's just my 2 cents take it for what it's worth.
