says George Elerick, who will be speaking at a PCN conference in November. He believes that exhortations to be Christ-like are symptomatic of a misanthropic and manipulating attitude towards humanity.
“Christ-like” sounds like a holier than thou bumper sticker that should never be found on any vehicle. What does this phrase invoke? Ideologically speaking, I mean. Well, prior to someone being this ethereal 'Christ-like' agent, they are, in a sense, nothing. Nothing without Christ. Yet. Christ separates himself from his followers many times. At one point, he even claims that their potential will exceed his own. That there is no template. Hence, why when he leaves, Christ doesn't leave them a Bible. Or any book of instruction after that.
