Why did Jesus come into the world?
According to McManus, contrary to popular opinion, Jesus Christ came neither to teach Christianity nor to establish the Christian religion.
The goal of the life and teaching of Jesus is not to make the Hindu, Buddhist, Muslim, or Jew a Christian. Neither did Jesus come with the goal of showing us how to be Christians. What Jesus wants for all people whether religious or secular, Republican or Democrat, liberal or conservativeis that they turn away from destructive, non-life-giving systems and join him on the quest to find their humanity again.
