What would Jesus do with the Syrian Refugees?

I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not give me clothing, sick and and in prison and you did not visit me.’ 44 Then they also will answer, ‘Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not take care of you?’ 45 Then he will answer them, ‘Truly I tell you, just as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.”

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

  1. I will ask you one question and I dare you to answer it.

    Q: Give me one good reason why we have not set up a tent city for these peaceful people on the lawn of the Whitehouse as an example for how we as decent kind Americans should welcome these innocent widows and orphans.

    I await your answer.

  2. Jesus' above command was given to all his followers without any qualifications that someone else act before you are required to act. Jesus demands that YOU, Frank, help the poor and needy, and if there is anyone needy today, it is Syrian refugees fleeing for their very lives.

    Stop waiting for me or Barack Obama to act first. Jesus commands YOU to act now, even if no one else does.

  3. So you you have no answer then? Convince me using science, reason and logic as to why I should do what you and the turd in the Whitehouse have yet to do? When will the doors on your abodes swing wide open as a loving, kind example of secular humanism? You cannot do it, you have painted yourself into a corner of liberal hypocrisy and the only way to escape is by setting up a Christian straw-man and trampling over it as it falls. You're an absolute idiot Gary.

  4. Why are you calling on Jesus' words when it's convenient to you? You just want a god made in your own image. When God said he made man in His image. You need to throw out your Bible, Gary.

  5. “I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept his claim to be God. That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic — on the level with the man who says he is a poached egg — or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God, but let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.” (Clive Staples)

  6. I do not believe that the Gospel of John was written by someone who had known Jesus of Nazareth. So I do not accept as historical anything in the Gospel of John that is not mentioned in the Synoptics, and Jesus never claims to be God, Yahweh himself, in the Synoptics.

    I believe that the historical Jesus most likely believed that he was the Messiah sent by God for a very special purpose, but I believe that Jesus would roll over in his grave if he knew that later Christians would assert that he believed himself to be Yahweh.

  7. It seems to have escaped you, fundamentalist that you are and will remain, it appears . . .

    Is most ignore what “you think.” It is merely an extension of the fundamentalism of your youth – what you think . . . well by gosh and by golly, God had better agree with you or else.

    Lewis nailed you, and you are not even swift enough of realization to get it. I don't have to “believe that” – that you exhibit every time you put up a new joke on your site.

    Some really give a care about you, Doctor. But since you already have, “by reason and science,” all the knowledge of Heaven and Earth . . .

    Who could possibly approach your genius? You ARE God.
