    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!

    Hey, can’t you give some credit for sincerity, even if it seems wrongheaded?

    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.

    My, my, you’re getting hot under the collar. What would you do if you met some young dewy eyed soul wearing one of those bracelets?

    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.

    Yes, I noticed that. Do you suppose that’s what Jesus would do?

    Drat! You caught me. Yes, you’re right, but I’m not sure that my mind is changed.

    Certainly something to think about!
