    Red-Letter Christians

    There is an official website called www.redletterchristians.org, with the stated purpose as follows: The goal of Red Letter Christians is simple: To take Jesus seriously by endeavoring to live out His radical, counter-cultural teachings as set forth in Scripture, and especially embracing the lifestyle prescribed in the Sermon on the Mount. I think I understand the intent of this group. However, the premise is mistaken and it leads to the ultimate question: Should we treat the words of Jesus differently than the rest of Scripture?
