Jesus is NOT…

06 Jun

KJV Only

Independent Fundamental Baptist (Southern Baptist, Presbyterian, or any denomination)

Affiliated with any political party (outside of His own kingship)

A Calvinist or an Arminian

Snobbish in his musical preference

Racist (yeah, He didn’t condemn marriage between different ethnic groups… take a look back through His family tree)

A Teetotaler

A Dispensationalist (He did not separate Israel and the church, He actually taught the opposite – John 10:16)

Worried about sullying His testimony by the misconceptions of others

Afraid to be a friend of sinners (I mean a real friend, not a “why not come to church with me on Sunday” friend, but a “Let’s go out to dinner and talk about life.” friend)

One to use profane speech in attempts to relate to the culture?

The list could go on, but in summary: Why do so many people claim to be followers of Jesus, yet exalt as identifying marks of a true disciple of Jesus some of the very things that Jesus is not? How can one truly be a follower of another if they are so unlike the one they say they follow?

    Good post! And I think this is about as short a one that you’ve ever written! 🙂
