Now, before I dive right into this post, I would like to say that I’m not a religious person, however I am a spiritual person. I practice the Kaballah way of living. The mysticism, philosophical, spiritual, loving aspect of Judaism. I have no problem whatsoever with discussing religious views with another person, however, I do not want someone else’s views shoved down my throat.
On with the post shall we.
The other night I was on the phone with my dad, talking about the conversations he had been having with some co-workers and a few locals at a store. One of the conversations caught my attention. My dad and one of the locals had talked about where Jesus would go if he was hanging around in our society. The man had mentioned that Jesus would never enter a casino or even step inside a bar. But my dad had disagreed. As well he should have.
Here are the things my dad and I agreed on.
Jesus would’ve stepped inside a bar, casino, strip joints.
Jesus spent his time with the sinners. He didn’t care where they were. He wants to spend time with them. Talk to them. Comfort them. He may not put money into the slot machines, and have just a glass of wine with the drunk at the bar; but he would want to spend time and show others love and compassion. He would want to help them get over there addictions.
Many people keep forgetting that Jesus hung out with all of the sinners. In fact, there is much speculation that Jesus had a physical relationship with Mary Magdalene. I can honestly say that I wouldn’t doubt it. It may have happened, but who knows. I know that a lot of people are going to get ticked off from me even saying this, but at least I’m not naive to know that even Jesus committed sins. He is just like everyone else, even if he is God’s son.
He loved everyone, and still does to this day.
