What Did Jesus Really Teach?

I agree with Richard Rohr that Christianity isn’t about evacuation plans to leave this world, but rather it is about transforming our inner world in order to impact the outer world. Jesus cares for the poor, and He ate and drank with people who were despised by the society. And yes, Jesus was crucified because he challenged the social order and norms of his time. He is a radical idealist because he firmly believes in social justice and champions for equal rights for humanity.

I also agree with Rob Bell that Jesus emphasised on social justice, saying that the way is narrow, and it is hard for the rich to enter (or experience) the kingdom of God (righteousness, peace and joy within). Jesus came to serve – as an example for people to know that they are rich and they can give generously to others, and take hold of the life that is truly life. Yes, when we do or share good things, we are helping to repair and restore the world.
