Most Christians believe that men are indeed the method of Jesus, but precious few are willing to invest their lives by putting all their eggs in one basket. Believing this people-orientated philosophy and practicing it are entirely different matters. A large problem in Christendom is that we don’t want to take the risk or the time to invest in the lives of people, even though this was a fundamental part of Jesus’ ministry. We fear, that the basket is really a trap to ensnare us.
