I find it interesting on FR that Christians define themselves as people who want to piss off other people, or to antagonize them. And no doubt you could come up with scripture to support pissing people off.

But I tell you plainly, the beauty of Jesus was not in pissing people off.

The beauty was in loving even one's enemy, including loving them in an actual, spiritual way.

For some reason, Christians on the site by and large hate the thought of love.

relax, just a response to a common liberal bumper sticker "Doing my part to piss off the religious right"

Actually, in public of all places, Jesus verbally attacked those that opposed Him. Maybe you could do a little reading?

I gotta agree with you though, we should NOT be on a mission to anger people.

What nonsense. Christians here do show love but we are also people of JUSTICE and God will wreak havoc on those who continually spit in his face or turn away from him. We don't want to see that happen but we know it will. Nobody minds pissing US off but if we get mad, it's considered to be against God's law. Well, he says we can be angry but sin not. Righteous anger is what Jesus had when he threw the moneychangers out of the Temple. Wait until you see what God does when He pours His wrath out on this world.
