Jesus is on the side of the oppressed

Jesus is on the side of the oppressed September 14, 2017

Jesus is with the people on the fringe of the culture who demand to be treated with respect and dignity.
He is always on the side of the marginalized victims.
Jesus is with refugees and minorities.
Jesus supports the meek and humble.
He stands against oppression.
Jesus is not on the side of the government or those who make it illegal to help the needy.
He is not with those who victimize or threaten the helpless.

Jesus is not on the side of the majority when they walk the streets with rifles.
Repeatedly, Jesus placed himself between victims and the crowds. He opposed religious and government leaders and defended their victims.
We who actually follow Jesus have no choice but to stand up for victims and stand up to oppression.
As Jesus followers, we join him when we oppose racists. Or bigots. Or homophobes. Or misogynists.
You can be on the side of the majority, and sometimes bring Jesus there, when you do the things Jesus would have you do.
You can’t find yourself an oppressor and claim it’s in the name of Christ.
