Are Christians do gooders

People often see Christians as do-gooders who are not supposed to do any wrong. If they read through every single page of the Bible, they may find that a Christian's behaviour is not so simple. They are also taught to protect themselves. Thus Jesus tells the 12 disciples:

'I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves'

Which is why people tend to misunderstand when Christians make small 'unChristian like' actions which may not be in line with their impressions, such as swearing or agressive behaviour. The thing is, Christians are also human and are subject to the different emotions of fear, anger, laughter, joy. What is more important is the big picture of how Christians try to lead their lives with integrity and honour. 1 Peter 2 says:

'Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us.'

People may misunderstand, but at the end of the road, only God judges.
