From What Would Jesus Ask?:
The Jesus we create in our mind, you know the one that works for us, perhaps, this Jesus is not the real Jesus. Last time I checked, this Jesus does not demand my life. Actually, this Jesus tells me that everything is going to be okay and that I should just fall in line with the rest of them. Somehow the Jesus of the Gospels does not fit the Jesus we make up in our church gatherings.
Would Jesus be as concerned with appearance as we are? Do we ask the questions Jesus would ask? Do we have the people in our communities which Jesus would have? If Jesus showed up to our quaint religious services, would we let him in with his town whore and fishermen buddies?
Since when did Jesus’ message become nice, tame, and purposed in serving the individual soul? Didn’t Jesus give us a mandate to go into the whole world and make disciples? Is that not different than an altar call to save souls?
I’m left wondering which Bible we read in America…
God help your church.
