Things Jesus Never Said To Do

I often read John Umland's Umblog. In one of his posts John shares a list of things Jesus Never Said To Do.

*Go into all the world and build big buildings.

*Go into all the world and entertain the Christians.

*Go divide up into factions and constantly argue with each other.

*Go find people you can pay to go into all the world so you don't have to tell anyone yourself.

*Go into all the world that's easy to get to and will let you in without too much hassle.

*Go and elevate certain men above all the others and listen to them more than you listen to Me.

*Go into all the world and see what you can learn from them about how to influence people.

*Go get an education so you'll be thoroughly prepared by the theories and programs of Man before you go do what Jesus commanded.

*Go into all the world and learn to be just like them.

*Go into all the world and ignore all the poor people, recruit all the rich people, and then spend 95% of all the revenue on yourself and your own comforts.

Brother Guy,

Stopped at the store yesterday to get some gas and noticed soft drinks on sale. When I went to get my 2-24 packs of Mt. Dew for $6, I noticed they had Dr. Peppers on sale also. I thought of you and prayed that you and your family are doing well.

Isn't that amazing? Dr. Pepper's make me remember to pray for you. At this rate I am going to have to develop a tast for Dr. Pepper.

Blessings,
Tim

Guy,

Thank you for this post! It seems it may be more "normal" for us to do what Jesus didn't say... hmmm...

Good one - something there to bother everyone! :)

I especially like #5 - we've already done that one, so now we're trying to make excuses why we shouldn't go to the OTHER places (the expensive, uncomfortable places)!
