How would I know what Jesus would have done? That fella was a mass of contradictions as far as I can see. One minute he says to turn the other cheek, the next minute he’s having a big strop and kicking over lads’ market stalls. He says blessed are the meek and he goes around shouting and roaring the odds to everyone. He rises from the dead and then shags off a few weeks later and leaves his buddies in the shit.
This is what the LORD requires of every man; to do justice, to love mercy and to humbly work with God.
The Word of God is my life’s manual.
All that I am I owe to Jesus Christ, revealed to me in His divine Book.
The reason you don’t like the Bible, you old sinner, is because it knows all about you.
The Bible is God’s gift to us. It came from God, and it points us to God.
Take all that you can of this book upon reason, and the balance on faith, and you will live and die a happier man. (When a skeptic expressed surprise to see him reading a Bible)
Men write Bibles. God doesn’t. God writes in stars and worlds and seasons and Hudson Rivers and beautiful women. Creation is the good book.
Did god make man too perfect,
So that a piece has to be removed
The modern teachings of Christianity often preach of a peaceful, merciful, and loving God/Creator. Culturally, this concept of a God of peace is well liked and accepted amongst clergymen and the Christian community alike; however, some scriptural evidence gives us a contradictory and seemingly destructive version of our Creator.
