Do you remember that fad a while back with the bracelets and other apparel that had WWJD (What Would Jesus Do) on them? That was a good idea to keep fresh on people’s minds it’s a shame that it was taken over by the “promise rings”. With all the controversy and adversity in the world today, it only seems proper to reflect that frustration with the addition of WTF.
WHAT THE FUCK WOULD JESUS DO?
What the fuck would Buddha do? What the fuck would Muhammad do? What the fuck would Confucius say? Does anyone today have a sword with a hilt? Or do we only have available swords that cut our own hands with every accost? In the Old Testament,Isaiah
said to turn swords into ploughshares, Joel
said to turn ploughshares into swords, Ecclesiastes
states there is a time for every purpose under Heaven. The Qu’ran describes what conditions justify war and peace
. The promise of discernment is very rare and the reciprocation will continue as war and peace is determined on whether there is a monetary profit to be made in either endeavor.
JESUS WOULD OVERTHROW THE TABLES OF THOSE MONEYCHANGERS AND THE SEATS OF THOSE THAT SOLD PEACE
He would appear as a thief in the night. Those unaware, those beholden to money, and the handlers of money who protect the status quo
would have much to lose. Strategies now employed are summarized but not limited to phrases like “it’s not good enough”, “it won’t work”, “this is how we’ve always done it”, “you just don’t understand the business”, “we can play this game better than you and keep the status quo”, “we will discredit you if you keep trying to get us to focus on a new way”, “we will find ways to distract you”, “we will isolate and marginalize you”, “yes…but”, and “as long as the change applies to everyone except me.”
JESUS WOULD HEAR NONE OF IT
It is the same old song and dance. It only differs semantically and grows in proportion. with the zeitgeist; the defining spirit or mood of a particular period of history as shown by the ideas and beliefs of the time. On a global scale, the status quo has optimized
and paved the way for the Monarchical Federalists feared by James Madison and Thomas Jefferson.
JESUS WOULD LET THOSE RESPONSIBLE PERISH BY SUICIDE
The return of the consummate persona described in Jesus Christ requires the arrival of the most demonic persona, the Son of Perdition who, like Judas, has experienced a certain closeness to God and has a good understanding of salvation, but then denies it. Instead of bearing good fruit, he bears “thorns and thistles.” This is a person who sees the path to salvation, which is trusting in God’s grace to cover sin, and instead either flatly denies the existence of God or denies God’s gift of salvation, preferring to pay his own debt. The usurpation of man’s best efforts to create an ideal state carry with it the seeds of the usurpers own demise.
FOR HE THAT IS NOT AGAINST US IS ON OUR PART
“And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he followeth not us. But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me. For he that is not against us is on our part.” Mark 9:38-40
Those who stand for the way, truth, and life are not forbidden to do their work. The fruits of their labor reveal their true nature and those fruits are to be undisturbed no matter the growth of the undesirable until fruition.
“There are three friendships which are advantageous, and three which are injurious. Friendship with the upright; friendship with the sincere; and friendship with the man of much observation:– these are advantageous. Friendship with the man of specious airs; friendship with the insinuatingly soft; and friendship with the glib-tongued:– these are injurious.”- Confucius
“If one finds a person who points out one’s faults and who reproves one, one should follow such a wise and sagacious counselor as one would a guide to hidden treasure” (Dhammapada. 76).
“God does not forbid you to be kind and equitable to those who have neither fought against your faith nor driven you out of your homes. In fact God loves the equitable.” Qur’an:60:8
JESUS WOULD BE PRAGMATIC
