Seems to me that those who do follow the teachings of Jesus are quite at odds with far too many self-professed Christians these days.
Since it was Paul who was most influential in creating the religion of Christianity, and Paul never even met Jesus, the religion of Christianity has something of a disconnect from Jesus hard-wired into it from the get go. Most people accept the dogma of Paul's epiphany on the road to Damascus. I see him as an opportunist who saw an opportunity to hijack a leadership role among those he had been persecuting in order to stamp his own message on the movement. He co-opted it instead of battling it.
For all intents and purposes, the religion as practiced by the more intolerant Christians should be called Paulianity.
