Jesus Christ said some outlandish things. Wouldn’t you agree? Wow! The guy sounded like he was from some totally different planet. Even a different universe. Wait… even a totally different realm! I mean really. Can anyone like this be taken seriously? I thought that maybe I would quote a few of the things he said and then you can judge for yourself.
“Stockpile treasure in heaven, where it’s safe from moth and rust and burglars.
It’s obvious, isn’t it? The place where your treasure is, is the place you will most want to be, and end up being.”
Really? I have to tell you… this guy is really “out there”! I mean, c’mon man; who says these kind of things? It just begs the question:
“ARE YOU SERIOUS?”
Then there is this one:
“No one is able to serve two masters. For either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You are not able to serve God and money. For this reason I say to you, do not be anxious for your life, what you will eat, and not for your body, what you will wear. Is your life not more than food and your body more than clothing? Consider the birds of the sky, that they do not sow or reap or gather produce into barns, and your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth more than they are?”
DUDE!!! You got to be kidding me. I mean who IS this guy? Is he on drugs or something? Hare Krishna his next door neighbor? Been hitting the bottle again?
IS THIS GUY SERIOUS?
And then there is the most outrageous statement of all:
“Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear? for the pagans seek after all these things. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.
But seek first his kingdom and righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”
Man… Are You Serious? Who is this joke on anyway?
Dear believer, this is the question that I am asking you right now:
ARE YOU SERIOUS? WHAT ARE YOU SERIOUS ABOUT?
IF YOU ARE TOTALLY SERIOUS ABOUT CHRIST AND HIS KINGDOM THEN
