He was talking about the ideas current Christians espouse, not the ones Christ died for. There's quite a world between them. I believe in Jesus-Christ and find his teachings very worthy, yet I refuse to be considered Christian, because the very same ideas Christ taught are the ones Christians should use on themselves before daring try and give lessons to other people (especially the last one you cited). Remember how Jesus reacted when he went to the temple and saw it invaded by merchants? If he was to come back now and saw what Christianity has become, I don't think he would have a different reaction... Christophe.
