Would Jesus be 'saddened' by Christians?

“I think Jesus of Nazareth would be saddened by the actions of those who worship his name” – Grant M R.
The Bible gives a list of those who will not enter the Kingdom of God: “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God” (1 Corinthians 6:9-10).
The word “revilers” means foulmouthed, abusive, slanderous people. Revilers are rooted in disobedience to the gospel, often denying the reality of God’s existence and abusing those who love Him.
So instead of making up thoughts about Jesus being sad, we should base our theology on Holy Scripture to see what it sees about how He feels: “And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power” (2 Thessalonians 1:7-9).
“Ray, why did God give me an appendix? Why are my wind and food pipes too close together to avoid choking easily? Why do women have to go through such severe childbirth in order for our pelvis’ to be shaped in such a way we can walk upright?” – Patricia B.
The appendix is said to be vestigial. But it’s not. Duke University released an article, “Appendix Isn’t Useless at All: It’s a Safe House for Bacteria,” by Duke Medicine News and Communications.
Long denigrated as vestigial or useless, the appendix now appears to have a reason to be – as a “safe house” for the beneficial bacteria living in the human gut.
Meanwhile, eat slower and it will fix your choking problem. Plenty of women who have never had children walk just fine.
“Ray Comfort, I’m aware that you are not originally American. That doesn’t change the fact that 99.9 percent of Christians are of a particular faith because they were born into it, while the rest are usually led into it from some sort of tragedy or loneliness in their life” – Troy M.
Explain to me then why millions are turning to Jesus Christ in China.
According to the BBC, “Many of China’s churches are overflowing, as the number of Christians in the country multiplies.”
They said, “A conservative figure is 60 million. There are already more Chinese at church on a Sunday than in the whole of Europe.”
While it is true that it sometimes takes a tragedy to humble proud human hearts, some instead become bitter and hateful towards God. The motive for becoming a Christian shouldn’t be that we are lonely, but that we are sinners who desperately need God’s forgiveness.
