Sometimes it can be difficult. Some of the obstacles to being a compassionate follower of Jesus may be immaturity, self-centeredness, or moments of frustration. Probably the biggest obstacle to a compassionate Christian life is the misunderstanding of what it means to be a follower of Jesus. Jesus was the embodiment of compassion.
Christians think we are supposed to take back America or win the culture war, make sure homosexuals do not destroy marriage, keep America moral and pure, right?
But wait – that was not Jesus’ purpose for Israel. And dare I suggest, maybe it should not be our purpose for America.
Jesus judged the religious crowd, not Israel’s patriotism to a long forgotten time that may or may not have ever existed. If we are to judge, let us judge ourselves, the “religious” crowd… the Church.
If America is to become great it will be because of Christians’ compassion, not their control.
