like father, like son…

True Christian discipleship means faithfulness in living like the one we follow. I do not remember anywhere in the Gospels where Jesus berates, castigates, or condemns anyone for their race or sexual orientation.

I do remember him saying multiple times that we are to love each other more than we love ourselves. Maybe our spirituality should be determined more by how much we love rather than all the things we condemn…just a thought

“Jesus never said a word about homosexuality”

Jesus never said a word about homosexuality. He did, on the other hand, have plenty to say about feeding the hungry, loving the poor, the danger of greed, the love of wealth, and religious leaders being hypocrites.

Maybe it’s time right-wing evangelicals paid more attention to what Jesus actually taught than their fear of those that are different,,,just a thought…

Feeding the 5,000 today

As sad as this seems to be, it is actually worse. Today there would be those in the crowd who would be heckling Jesus and accusing him of socialism, pandering to the poor for votes, and questioning both his ethics and his motives.

And the saddest part is that much (if not most) of this criticism would be coming from those claiming to follow him…right wing evangelicals.
