rowdy jesus


“Read the Gospels.  Read what this guy is really like.  He had a strong personality, he told jokes, his friends were all the wrong people, he liked to go to parties.  He didn’t start a lepers’ rights movement, he just healed lepers in his path.  He was far more severe about people who were judgmental than he was about people who committed adultery.  Love was always more important than anything else.  All of his miracles were done on the Sabbath.  God should have said, “Jesus, tone it down a bit.  Be a little more careful!”

~ Robert Wuthnow, Creative Spirituality: the Way of the Artist
