I get so tired of people claiming that they know what Jesus would do. Why should I believe them. I’ve read the Bible daily for better than fifty years and I wouldn’t make that kind of claim. I’m sure they are sincere, but really!
Sure, sincerity can be very sweet, but shouldn’t defend ignorance. I certainly don’t mind people thinking about what Jesus would do, but when they think they know what it is, I get antsy. I’d much rather learn about him through Bible studies and learning more about where and how he lived than just take the word of the first preacher I ever heard.
If I were my best self, I’d ask them how they know what would Jesus do. That could start a good conversation which would help me move off my nasty knee jerk response. And I know I need to get away from that.
