Christian religious correctness

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.” John 3:16 Jesus was not religiously correct.  Jesus is the truth and speaks truth in love.  But, Jesus would surely still have been called extreme, exclusive and undiplomatic if He walked the earth today.  It all depends on who you asked.  For others would surely say of Jesus,..

Great faith

“There, a woman of Canaan came out of the same regions and cried out to Him, saying, “Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David. My daughter is severely possessed by a demon.” But He did not answer her a word.
