It is OK to try and be like Jesus [View all]

Jesus, it has been said, had great power.

He could have done anything he wanted.

He could have been King. Been the richest man ever.

But what he did was help the poor and freely healed the sick.

Those are the facts, according to the Bible.

So when people professing to believe the Bible and be followers of Jesus, then turn around and complain about helping the poor and healing the sick......grrrr

I get just a little po'd. I try to be a good Christian, because it is the right way to live and be a good member of society. So when i run into these hypocrites, it's like being delivered into temptation because they make me want to do evil by smacking them hard up side the head.

But of course i don't. What i do is remind them that Jesus wasn't in it for the money. That Jesus was not a capitalist - he was what they call a socialist.
