What would Jesus say? Well, I don’t know. Not a clue really. It’s all hearsay, Your Honor. Respectfully, the Bible in all its glory was respectfully written by others, not Jesus himself, many years after his Earthly departure.
We think we know what he would say. He stands for all the same things Superman does. –truth, justice, and the American way or the lighted path way, anyway. The constant barrage of people putting words in Jesus’ mouth never stops. We are most assuredly on the right track when we put our best foot forward, gather up all the wisdom and goodness that we have ever been exposed to, attach the golden rule to the situation, sprinkle in compassion and arrive at a conclusion of what our best guess would be under the circumstances. But we don’t really know what he would have said in a given situation. We know what we think he would have said or what we would have wanted him to say, but not actually what he would say.
We know what the Good Book says though. The saying should maybe be changed to WDWTJWS. It’s a little harder to remember and doesn’t roll off the tongue as easily. But ‘What Do We Think Jesus Would Say’ is a little more analytically correct… Sandy
