Am I Guilty of Condemming Jesus?


If we refuse the truth of the gospel and instead accept the man-made truth of religion, would we not be found accepting deception as truth and our ability to spiritual mature is thwarted?

If we condemn the love and grace of God because of religious man-made traditional beliefs, would we not be found condemning Jesus?

If we are justified in condemning people for the company they keep, should we not condemn Jesus Christ for being a "friend of sinners"...for attending a wedding party where the patrons got drunk and after all the wine was gone made new wine for them to drink...for associating with a prostitute...and associating with a tax collector and swindler?
 I wonder...would Jesus befriend gays and lesbians, or would He be found judging and condemning them by standing with the self-righteous "sainted saints" against them, while saying they are standing for Christ and the "christian cause", while making some chicken killer seller rich by eating his genetically altered, chemically grown, deep fried greasy chicken?

  1. I have just finished reading Philip Yancey's book, "What's So Amazing About Grace". He sums up the grace message very well with out getting into some of the junk areas that others get into.

    Under the chapter Grace Healed Eyes page 175 he says and I quote "A prostitute, a wealthy exploited, a demon-possessed woman, a Roman solider, a Samaritan with running sores and another Samaritan with serial husbands---I marvel that Jesus gained the reputation as being a "friend of sinners" like these."

    In another chapter called, "No Oddball Allowed" page 158 he says Jesus never countenance evil, but he did stand ready to forgive it. Somehow he gained the reputation as a lover of sinners, a reputation that his followers are in danger of losing today. End of quote.

    I believe we have to love sinners but not their sins.
