According to Rochelle Weiss, not so much.
Does a good righteous person steal or order others to steal for him?
Jesus did. In Matthew 21:1–3, it states that Jesus ordered some of his followers to steal for him: They were now nearing Jerusalem; and when they reached Bethphage at the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples with these instructions: “Go to the village opposite, where you will at once find a donkey tethered with her foal beside her; untie them, and bring them to me. If anyone speaks to you, say, Our Master needs them, and he will let you take them at once.”…
Does a good righteous person only have disciples who hate their parents?
Jesus did. In Luke 14:26, Jesus states, “If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple (a Christian).”
Does a good righteous person treat animals cruelly?
Jesus did. In Matthew 8:28–32, Jesus transferred demons from two men to a herd of innocent pigs, which then perished. Jesus did not even seek out the owner of the pigs, or care how it would affect the owner’s livelihood or even try to compensate the owner for his loss.
Those are just three of the twelve questions Weiss asks.
I suspect some Christians have heard these questions before.
I’m curious as to what their rebuttals would be.
