I'm not writing this to anger my fellow Christians. I writing this so that we might ask ourselves the following questions.
How would Jesus would fit in modern day America?
Would he be welcomed or would he meet the same demise he met when he first appeared?
How would he be welcomed in your church?
How would his criticism of your church be received, by your church leaders?
Would he tell America it needs to spend more on bombs, weapons of mass destruction, etc. and less on the poor and disenfranchised?
What would he think upon seeing Christian leaders living opulent lifestyles while the masses suffer?
How would the established Christian community act when folks stopped listening to them and started listening to him, at his mass rallies?
How would the established Christian community respond when folks started giving their money to Jesus rather than them?
If Jesus were with us today where would he be living? Would he be living with the masses or living in opulence with rich religious leaders?
Would Jesus have a concealed carry permit?
Would he pass a background check?
If he drew a crowd on a busy street would he be cited for not having permit for a rally?
How would the fast food industry react if Jesus bought two big Mac's and five orders of french fries and fed thousands with some left over? Would they lobby their Christian conservative friends in Congress to stop that?
How would the Wine industry react if Jesus started turning water into wine? Would they lobby their Christian conservative friends in Congress to stop that?
How would the healthcare insurance companies react if Jesus started healing the sick for free? Would they lobby their Christian conservative friends in Congress to stop that?
Just asking. Feel free to ask your questions in the comment section.
