Following Jesus in Different Directions?

I’ve been pondering the following assertion from Ron Sider‘s Living Like Jesus:

“Still, the modern church prefers to accept only half of Jesus. They willingly accept him either as model or as mediator – but not both.  Some urge us to follow his example of love and social concern, but they forget about the cross. Others emphasize his death for our sins, but fail to imitate his actions. But Christianity is strong only when we embrace the whole Christ.”
