I AM the way, the truth, and the life...

Jesus Christ, the way, the truth, and the life…

I gotta tell ya folks, with all the brouhaha swirling around the infamous open-mic Trump “exposure”, I’m absolutely amazed, yet not surprised, at the self-righteous outburst from people who call themselves followers of Christ, and the condemnation they bring upon themselves because of their double standards.

Let me tell you straight up from my own experience, there is not one guy – not ONE – who can stand up and say he is pure as the driven snow. Not ONE who can honestly say that he hasn’t been involved in conversations the likes of Trump/Billy Bush.

Heck, just stroll into a sports dressing room following any kind of game, and listen to what all those hormone-driven “upstanding athletes” are intending to do tonight.

What would Christ do? Well here’s a start for y’all… John 8:1-11

Jesus went unto the mount of Olives. And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them. And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst, They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act. Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou? This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not. So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.

But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not .. John 8:6

But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not .. John 8:6

And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

You can’t help but imagine what was going through the woman’s mind as she stood there helplessly awaiting her conviction. All she got in the end was a touch from God through the overwhelming love of Jesus Christ. And don’t you wonder just what it was that Christ was writing on the ground? Obviously something overwhelming – so overwhelming that we mere mortals weren’t allowed to know the content.

As Paul writes in Ephesians 3: Wherefore I desire that ye faint not at my tribulations for you, which is your glory … That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God ~ vs 13,17-19

And that, my dear friends, is the definition of forgiveness.
