An Amiable Indifference

I believe it to be a great mistake to present Christianity as something charming and popular with no offense…. We cannot blink at the fact that gentle Jesus meek and mild was so stiff in his opinions and so inflammatory in his language that he was thrown out of church, stoned, hunted from place to place, and finally gibbeted as a firebrand and a public danger. Whatever his peace was, it was not the peace of an amiable indifference.

    What I find interesting about this quote is that those he was not meek and mild with were those in the church. Those outside the church he seemed to have had more of a meek and mild approach. Just my gut reaction to this quote.
