Jesus's Three Least Popular Statements
Where people disagree the most with Jesus
Not everyone is a Christian. In fact, some people don’t like Christians. Strangely enough, there is one thing you rarely see: People disagreeing with statements from Jesus.
Now, obviously, Jesus is the central figure of Christianity. If one doesn’t like Christianity, one should have a problem directly with Jesus. Yet people will often criticize Christian behavior and a few Biblical statements (often from the Old Testament), but rarely do I ever hear criticism in the form of, “Here’s something Jesus got wrong.” People — even dissenters from Christianity — tend not to want to go after Jesus (quite different from His own time), yet if Jesus isn’t divine and the Son of God, then there should be plenty to dissent from.
Now, I think part of the reason people rarely go after Jesus directly is, as I’ve discussed before, that much of our “secular” society is still founded on His teachings. Things like human rights and the concept of equality rest on the universal church he founded. Still, at least implicitly, there are a few statements from Jesus that are quite unpopular even if people don’t go after them directly. Here are the three I think are the least popular.
