Unfortunately, there are thousands of folks that talk about Jesus in every ilk imaginable.
A fellow was walking by a bridge and he looked in the shadows and saw a fellow standing there. Being a good Christian he said, “Hello, what are you doing?” and the fellow replied, quite sadly, “I am going to jump to my death.”
Now being a good Christian fellow, my friend said, “Jesus Loves you.” and the fellow replied, I know.
So, out of curiosity, having no training to deal with jumpers, my friend said, “Tell me, are you a Christian, Hindu, Arab or Jew, or something?” to which the fellow said, “I am a Christian.”
My friend became excited and said, “Praise the Lord, are you a Catholic, Protestant, Pentecostal or what?” To which the fellow replied, “I am Pentecostal.” So my friend clapped his hands and slapped the fellow on the shoulder. “Really, this is exciting, meeting a fellow brother here on the bridge at this hour. So, my friend, happily said, “Christian, Pentecostal, tell me, are you of the right wing, wanting to rule the world and acting like a funky chicken, praying and blabbering like an animal?” The man brightened up and said that he was. They then discussed conferences they had attended and the blessings they expected from God.
Now, the man was quite relaxed so my friend said, “Are you the Christian, Pentecostal, tell me of the right wing, wanting to rule the world and acting like a funky chicken, praying and blabbering like an animal from the latter rain movement, Toronto blessing?” The man looked like he wanted to come back over the rail and was excited. “Yes, why, yes I am.”
My friend slapped him on the shoulder, nearly knocking him off the bridge and said, “Praise God. It is hard to find someone that knows the truth.” They were laughing and telling each other stories about how funky they were and how they barked like dogs and hissed like snakes.
Then, my friend, wanting to bless him, said, “Are you the Christian, Pentecostal, tell me of the right wing, wanting to rule the world and acting like a funky chicken, praying and blabbering like an animal from the latter rain movement, Toronto blessing who thinks that people like Todd Bentley can do whatever they want and still minister kind?” The man bowed his head and shook it back and forth in a slow no. “No, I think pastors should be held to a state of accountability.”
My friend suddenly shouted “Die you heretic!” and pushed the fellow off the bridge. My friend shouted, as the man fell to his death, “Judge not lest you be judged!!”
My friend turned and saw me sitting on the side of a pillar and asked, “Are you a Christian?” He did not recognize me because I live with the poor and needy and am not a Christian, Pentecostal, tell me of the right wing, wanting to rule the world and acting like a funky chicken, praying and blabbering like an animal from the latter rain movement, Toronto blessing who cared about Todd Bentley at all. I was the kind that prayed in my closet and tried to be a blessing to the world, even him. He did not recognize me from his rage but I was glad that I was not standing ready to jump.
Glaring at me with wholly holy hatred, he told me that Jesus loved me and died for my sins, and stomped off. I took my coffee jug out of my bag and opened some cookies. Soon, others that had nothing joined me and we talked about what we saw.
Funny, we focus on so many things, save the things God asked us to focus on.
Please provide me with some basic information about you.
Like an application for a good job.
10 things I think God wants of me
Matthew 22:35 Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying,
36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38 This is the first and great commandment.
39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.
40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
13 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.
15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.
— Galatians 5:13-15 KJV
