Henriet, no doubt that I resonate with what you are saying - the church in the West finds itself in an unfortunate predicament to say the least and is badly in need of some "re-branding" as you say. We need to be weary, however, of people who like "their own version" of Jesus and their from-a-distance perception of the church. That Jesus is all about love is easy for people to swallow, but that is often not the case when it comes to the whole forsaking sin, dying to yourself, loving your enemies sort of stuff. We don't get one side w/o the other. And as far as the church goes, you betcha, we have a long, long way to go in terms of embodying the kind of resurrection life that Jesus has for us, but the church will forever remain a community of sinners in the process of redemption and as such, will never be perfect. As with Jesus, this is part of the "deal."
