Mark Sandlin lists 10 things you can’t do while following Jesus. Sojourners carries the story:
Lots of people claim to be “following Jesus” and then they do stuff like this. Sure, people who follow Jesus do these things all the time, but you can’t say you are doing them because you are trying to follow Jesus’ example.
4) Judge others.
3) Be physically aggressive or violent.
2) Use the church to hurt people.
Read all 10 and why one can’t do them and follow Jesus.
The problem for me is that upon being told “you can’t” – my reaction is “oh yeah” or “but what about?” What do you think about the list?
