15. Very True - a sincere disciple of Christ wouldn't even imagine doing such things
Unfortunately I have only ever met two people in 45 years that followed Christ's teachings.
Neither called themselves Christians, and I doubt if any who use that term are anything other than sheep following evil mean cloaked in piety.

It is an evil religion now that they have forgotten him.
