Christian, whatcha learning?

Geoff said this on Facebook:

I’d be happy if they got one year of formal education.. it would be a start. Hell, we have to go to school for at least 12 years in NZ before we’re considered educated enough to live in the secular world.. we give Christians a 20 min sermon on a sunday that most of them never listen to and then they wonder why people think they are a joke. For most of them its like a preschooler having a discussion with stephen hawking on theoretical physics.

Only a question: What should Christians learn?

        The historic Jesus taught the common man and woman while the muckety-mucks of the day disparaged him. It is only after Constantine remolded and put the Roman seal of approval on the Bethlehem firebrand that Jesus became fashionable for elites.
