Sometimes when I quote one of Jesus’ “tough”, “religiously incorrect” statements, some church folks, who it seems suffer from selective outrage syndrome, will snarl something like, “Who do you think you are Glenn, to disagree with________________ (insert name of celebrity preacher here)?”
My question, “Who does aforementioned celebrity preacher think he is to disagree with Jesus?”
And what’s more, “Who do you think you are to take the word of some millionaire, private jetting, mansion dwelling, snake oil selling, Bible denying, religious huckster over the words of the Creator of the universe??”
Maybe they’re right and I’m just ornery.
Ps Happy New Year
