selfish Jesus or selfish us?

April 28, 2011

Someone just posted this quote on facebook.  I know it has to do with some political decisions being made in the USA, but it really does apply to all of us who claim to follow Jesus.

“If this is going to be a Christian nation that doesn’t help the poor, either we have to pretend that Jesus was just as selfish as we are or we’ve got to acknowledge that He commanded us to love the poor and serve the needy without condition and then admit that we just don’t want to do it”
