Yep, if Jesus’ public relations committee were working for anyone else, they’d have been fired long ago. Anyone else with such a bad rep would disappear. The campaign would be over, the bus tour cancelled, the public appearances would stop…except for maybe Sarah Palin.
And we assume that it is this image problem that is leading to Christianity’s slide in influence. If only we could get our act together and show the people the real Jesus, then people would come back to us.
But maybe Jesus’ PR problem isn’t as simple as we think.
