‘Culturally inappropriate, shocking, abhorrent….’
This is how the words of Jesus have been described in the media over the last fortnight.
Yet, the disciple of Jesus knows his words to be eternal life, and that there is no where else to go, for Jesus is the Holy One of God.
Increasingly, the views of the Bible will be at odds with the surrounding culture of our world.
Frustration at the world will not help; nor will demanding a privileged position for Christians. It’s not a case of ‘they ought to know better’… it’s they don’t know the one who is better.
Let’s unashamedly hold out Jesus and his Words as eternal life to our world.
In Christ, Tory Cayzer.
