Gandhi was a kind hearted man who only put India's Independence first. Once when it was raining badly he gave his umbrella to his body guards. Gandhi wore cotton clothes which… were manufactured by machines instead of wearing fancy silk clothing which was expensive
Why did Gandhi say he likes Christ but he does not like Christians because they are unlike their Christ?
Answer 6 June 2009 Gandhi actually said "I admire Christ, but not Christians"; Gandhi liked/loved all people. It is impossible to say, for certain, why Gandhi made this comme…nt. He lived both in South Africa when it was under British rule, and later in India during the time of the Raj. It is not a matter of debate that, whilst Britain did bring benefits to India, it did so in a manner which was paternalistic and, at times, quite brutal. The fact that the ones doing this to the people of India proclaimed themselves to be followers of Christ, would quite possibly have made an impression on Gandhi, who, it appears, had read the Gospel accounts and saw that Christ's followers were quite unlike Christ Himself. Whereas Christ turned the other cheek, the British rulers could be harsh. Whereas Christ was a person who loved the weak, the oppressed, and the outcast the British rulers were seen to be rich, powerful and elitist. AnswerBecause he was right. There are very, very few Christ-like people in this world and Ghandi quite possibly never met one. This has always been the case; true Christians - not in just name only - are few and far between. Matthew 15:7 "Hypocrites, well did Esaiah prophesy of you, saying, 'This people draw nigh to me with their mouth, and honour me with their lips; but their hearts are far from me."Gandhi loved the Sermon on the Mount and all its teachings and urged his followers to read certain parts of the Bible and adhere to those principles. But, he did not agree with the divinity of the Christ or that no one may enter heaven except through him.For Gandhi, "God is Truth" and vice versa. Christ, like Gandhi, was nonviolent. How many Christians are nonviolent? Therefore, the quote strikes a chord with most people because it rings as absolute truth. Christ wrote "Give away your possessions and follow me." Like Christ, Gandhi had no possessions.
If the born again christian shouldn't look like Jesus in personality, nobody here on earth expects to be holy or godly. All Jesus tried to show us was we should believe …him sincerely do the things he did like he said who believes in me can do more things than even I did.
Christian is the name given to the folowers of Christ in the ancient city of antioque.
he got his personalized and you can at any popular hat stores (lids)
A fast is when a person does not eat or drink for long periods of time (most of the time, for days, such as Gandhi) for a religious practice or to protest against something.
Christ is the Greek translation of the Hebrew word Messiah, which means "anointed one."
cus he can
They don't - well, at least they shouldn't! However, there is a huge difference between judging a person and speaking out against an evil act. Jesus made it clear that we cann…ot judge people but it is a Christian responsibility to speak out against things that are wrong -poverty, sin, oppression and so on. In other words, Christians are called to hate and speak out against the sin, but to love the sinner.
He said something to effect of "I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ."
By submitting our wills to the Spirit and being sober and vigilant at all hours of the day.
If you try to do it by yourself you'll fail. The first step is knowing Christ. As you spend time with him, you'll become more like him. The best way is to study the Bible, bot…h by yourself and with others; and to spend time talking to and listening to God. Again this can be done by yourself and with others. Matthew 18:20: "For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them."
He was like an ordinary man to see. Yet his appearance was no longer important to the apostles after he rose from the dead and went to heaven, as the Scripture says - 2 Corint…hians 5.16. Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we [him] no more.
Why do they always give a Catholic view to Christian questions Christian means Christ like not Catholic?
. Catholic Answer Catholic means Christian, Our Blessed Lord established the Catholic Church two thousand years ago, if you are asking why you ask a Christian question an…d are not getting a protestant answer, then you need to ask a protestant question. In your question you say Christian means Christ not Catholic. This is a mistake. Our Blessed Lord only founded one Church (His words, not mine) and guaranteed it until the end of the world. It is His Mystical Body, and He set St. Peter as its first Vicar, and guaranteed him and his successors, that the gates of hell would not prevail against it. He then set the Holy Spirit to guide it into all truth. Christian means that you are following Christ, in other words, Christian means that you are a member of the Catholic Church. People outside the visible Church may be Christians to the extent that they are validly baptized and believe in the Nicene Creed in its traditional interpretation, but only then. To be a protestant is not necessarily a Christian. It is to be a follower of heretics who left the Catholic Church in the sixteenth century and formed their own outside of the One Church which Our Blessed Savior founded.
