Jesus was always around these peoples, the sinners and the criminals and the tax collectors, the poor and homeless in his day and even dined with them. Why do Christians shun these people? Jesus did not threaten them with annihition in a firey place. He loved them for who they were.

I thought you died a few months back. Yes, I like this answer.
Thanks for your answer.
I agree with this. I was told by someone that those Christians have a right to use the Bible as a sword. Jesus said no such thing. They make it up as they go along.
What if you never heard of Jesus or the Bible? Didn't Jesus also die for them or are they damned to eternal hell because they no no difference?
Great question! "And that slave who knew his master's will and did not get ready or act in accord with his will, shall receive many lashes, but the one who did not know it, and committed deeds worthy of a flogging, will receive but few. And from ev
What version of what Bible is that from because I did a search in a few Bibles and did not come up with that. Jesus said that??
It is from Luke 12:47-48. Reading from 12:45, Jesus
describes punishment to hypocritical "masters" or leaders and that of the innocent ones.
Those are rules for slaves they had back then. We are not slaves and we don't get stripes. This is 1 reason we don't have slaves in our country anymore. It also has nothing to do with accepting him as your savior.
The parable describes slavery but the issue concerns servant and master. In Christian life, believers are to forgo self-importance and humbly serve God as their Master. God is Master over all including the arrogant and the willfully cruel.
Jesus said the the laws are inside the minds of mankind and that everything in the Kingdom of God are within us. We have no choice but to serve the God inside of us. U cannot serve 2 masters..EGO or GOD. Those serving EGO will never understand GOD
Who created ego, if not God?
He spoke in parables so only his would understand
10 And the disciples came, and said unto himWhy speakest thou unto them in parables?
11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of he
Thank you for your wonderful blessed comment.
He was tempted but did not give in to temptation. There would be no lesson if there was no temptation
Mark 1:13 And he was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him.
Deborah, you are right. There would be no lesson if there was no temptation. Isn't that why we need Satan to be around?
This was not about Jesus being a Christian but about Christian being Christ-like and treating others with respect and not judging and damning them to hell and using the Bible as a sword.
LG is right but i like your answer anyway. Many Christians really think that J.C. was in fact a Christian and not a Jew
Exactly d.williams. I agree too.
When people say they base their religion around Yahshua (Jesus) then they should walk as he did. It has nothing to do with Yahshua being a Christian
Lady Guinevere, I still see no contradictions. What the Christians believe to be Christ-like is NOT what Jesus was like, LOL.
So how would you punish the si and not the person who committed it? Jesus never said that he was or has taken anyone to hell for what they believed. He only stated they are to go and sin no more. I don't think that he counted any of their sins
He said he came not to judge them
Yahshua did not Judge God did and does
I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.
He loved them for exactly who they were, but told them to "go and sin no more" As in the case of Mary
She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
Mary seemed to love him the most
