A Holiday Prayer for Christians— Watch Out for Pharisees. Following Human Values
A Holiday Prayer for Christians—
Watch Out for Pharisees
As families stuff themselves these holidays, some are
Proud of their Christian values,
based on a loving Jesus.
Some of the same ones feverishly Pray
to Deny Even a Stable to those like him and his mother,
Seeking Shelter from the Middle East.
Some are so pro-life,
They pray our leaders deny
the poor medical care,
Jesus would be so pleased with that,
Having healed them for free.
Christian Americans live in
the “home of the brave”
Armed with over 300 million guns,
Yet quiver and panic,
afraid of little Syrian children
and their parents,
While ignoring the Horror of a White Guy
Murdering 26 school kids
with a military weapon,
Or scores of unarmed black men.
Jesus had a name for those who pretend to be Christian.
and look in the mirror
if you claim to be Christian.
Does it apply or not? Only you know the answer.
What would Jesus do?
He would afflict the comfortable,
And comfort the afflicted.
ISIS is not Islamic; Pharisees are not Christian.
No religion condones murder.
Women and children deserve protection. From all rapists, thugs, murderers and abusers.
The Muslim holy book Koran praises Jesus and the Virgin Mary.
The next time you pray in Jesus Name,
Ask, “What would Jesus Do?”
And remember his words
“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
In other words, treat others as you wish to be treated.
Jesus cared for the outcast, the least among us.
It’s time we did the same.
These are also Global American values.
They are human values regardless of your religion or none.
