From now on when you read the Scripture, pay close attention when you land on a chunk of text in which Moses, Joshua, David, Elijah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, John the Baptist, Paul or Jesus is engaged in dialogue with an idiotic idolater, a pompous Pharisee, a pain-in-the-ass politician or a daft disciple.
Check it out. You won’t see these searing saints doling out just fluffy stuff. Nope, they would challenge and oft-times ridicule the very ground the impenitent unbeliever or the feigned professor stood on. Not only that. You will rarely see God’s holy ones repenting of the diatribes they aimed at their audiences’ willful blindness.
That’s why I believe that if Jesus were walking planet earth today he would let kooky Islam have it right between the eyes with his verbal invectives. He would mock them and denounce them because they make the 1st Century Pharisees look positively gracious and laid- back and Christ was brutal with them.
Yep, Islam’s violent jihad, their abuse of women, their implacability and exclusivity coupled with their backward-ass worldview would draw out the satirist in Christ. He wouldn’t dance around their nonsense, and you know what? Neither should we.
