what would Jesus have us do?Posted: March 25, 2011
We lost such a wonderful prophetic voice and treasure when we lost Peter Gomes. In response to the WWJD fad Gomes' observation makes so much sense. Thanks to Ann Fontaine for this.
|The question should not be "What would Jesus do?" but rather, more dangerously,
"What would Jesus have me do?"
The onus is not on Jesus but on us,
for Jesus did not come to ask semi-divine human beings to do impossible things.
He came to ask human beings to live up to their full humanity;
he wants us to live in the full implication of our human gifts,
and that is far more demanding.
