Was Jesus actually good? Or just obedient? When God tells you to do something, you do it. Especially if he's your dad. And everyone has those "Take this cup away from me because it sucks ass" days. Those, "Eloi, eloi, lama sabacthani?" moments. But he did what he was sent to do. He did his job.
Abraham, now there's a one. He was at the beck and call of his line manager. The orders come to kill his son, he's all "Yessir!", raises the knife, it's right down to the wire and God telegraphs in - "just kidding stop". He'd have made the perfect Nazi, Abe. Just doing my job.
What if Mary told you to do something? I mean, she is the MOTHER of God! But she never told anyone to do anything. Does that make her better than Jesus?ReplyDelete
