The Problem with Some Christians


The problem with some Christians
is that they want
to follow Jesus
without doing what He did.

They have not studied
the Hebrew Bible
because they forgot
Jesus never read
the New Testament.

Some cannot even agree
on which translation of
ten commandments
to follow
much less
the 613 mitzvot
they are supposed to keep.

They idolize
the writings of Paul
a different Jewish iconoclast
who lowered the bar
in the name of
The Great Commission.

Their response to
Pharisaic ritualism
is to have no rituals
at all.

The problem with some Christians
is they forget
their savior is a Jew.

  1. interesting...typically i swing the liberal side of christianity...i err on the side of grace & love...though that does include tough love as well...empty ritual, i have little place for that...or for the hellfire and brimstone...if that is all you preach, you know...i think too that many forget that jesus would not have been white either...ha...
