I have been listening to an online audio course about the Historical Jesus, taught by Bart D. Ehrman. In Module 21, The Afterlife of Jesus, he makes this statement:
"They took the religion of Jesus and made it into a religion about Jesus." Bart D. Ehrman
This struck me as so true. Are we really supposed to be "preaching Jesus" (i.e., "Jesus, Jesus, Jesus), as directed by many modern day Christian leaders?
Jesus came to earth to show us how to live live here on this earth. We are to be living out the same time of life that Jesus lived. We are to "follow in his steps."
