What came first?

Our idea of the good person? Or our interpretation of what the bible says is a good person? Or the biblical writers’ idea of what is a good person? Or the biblical writers’ culture’s idea of what is a good person? Or God’s idea of what is a good person? Or the ancient culture’s idea of what God’s idea of what is a good person? Or our beliefs about what God’s idea is of a good person?

Of course, these all feed off of each other in a vicious circle of life that protects those at the top of the food chain and consumes those at the bottom.

Jesus defied his religious culture’s idea of what was a good person by being a truthful one.

    Good or bad has nothing to do with it. There is none good but God.

    Jesus is after repentance, and trust in Himself.

    Yeah i’m just done having a discussion on facebook with a couple of evangelical friends over their approach to homosexuality in the light of this intereview with Rob Bell http://www.churchleaders.com/pastors/videos-for-pastors/167723-must-see-rob-bell-and-andrew-wilson-debate-homosexuality-and-the-bible.html

    Hard to have discussions with my Evangelical brothers about such thigns done in love.

    I would say, i take inspirtation from Russell Brand on this one. Like him or not, what he is doing here is good:) http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=russell+brand+westboro&oq=russell+brand+we&gs_l=youtube.1.0.0l10.5432.6250.0.8305.3.3.0.0.0.0.87.245.3.3.0…0.0…1ac.1.11.youtube.PZ2LKRdSeSg

    It is true that they had Jesus killed because he did not fit what they believed the Bible said a good person should be. It is also true that none of us, heterosexual or homosexual, fail to “fit in” to God’s interpretation of the Bible (see The Sermon on the Mount), and we are all condemned and we all need Jesus as our Savior. Instead of having a moral “food chain” where people who appear “morally different” are consumed and those who are the most “morally superior” get to be self righteous, why don’t we all love each other like Jesus loved people?

    This helped me not to feel so alone or utterly worthless when I realized that Jesus too was rejected for nothing more than speaking the truth.

    A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in him. Matthew 12:35

    Hmm…It would seem Jesus believes there is such a thing as a “good” man.
