Don’t Shoot

We all like to think that, if Jesus were here today, we’d make him our friend.
Our priest.

Our President, our Prime Minister.

I’m scared that, if Jesus were here today, someone would’ve already painted a swastika on his front door.

That he’d’ve drowned in a sinking refugee boat off Egypt.

That he’d’ve been locked away without charge for upsetting the status quo.

I’m scared that, if Jesus were here today, someone would have shot him already.

I’m scared that, if we take Matthew 25 seriously, that’s exactly what’s happening right now.
