What Would Jesus Do?

There used to be a merchandising slogan WWJD (What would Jesus Do?).  Well enough, every thoughtful Christian wants to follow Jesus' example.  As a trite slogan however it seems to have a soft appeal.  Because "the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us," I sympathize.  I tend to like everyone, Christians and those different from me as well.  However this slogan seems complicit with a move to cultivate lovey, kissy, soft Christians lacking any spark of righteousness so as to be angry at the wickedness that they see around them.  Instead many embrace it.

However, Jesus did not always act and speak softly.  Often too he had sharp words and actions against wickedness.  Remember that Jesus called the Pharisees and Sadducees the children of the devil and went into the Temple with a whip and drove out the moneychangers and overturned their tables.  (John 8:44, John 2:14-15)

If Jesus called righteous people faulted by a lack of mercy the children of the devil, what would he say of the current radical takeover of the West.  If I called these radical activists the spawn of the devil, would not Jesus do the same?  These hatch lings are everywhere advocating that perversion should prevail against decency, to pollute families and children, and to punish God's people for their opposition.  Wasn't this attitude the same as those who pressed on Lot's house for an opportunity to violate someone to gratify their lusts.

Even if they lacked mercy, at least the Pharisees followed God's law.  Now much of the professing church advocates, enables, and even participates in the most abominable sin.  It has gotten so bad that a short time ago the Lutheran Church of Iceland promoted a bearded lesbian Jesus.  This bearded lesbian Jesus is really the devil in disguise.  What god do you serve?  Would Jesus speak softly to a Church complicit with these things?  No but rather Jesus said:
Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.  ...  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. (Matthew 7:21,23)
What would Jesus say about the current liberal method of destroying resources to ensure that their replacement with preferred and usually inferior ones can't be reversed.  Obama destroyed the coal industry this way because it was right in his own eyes.  We were "using a trampoline" to get to the International Space Station while waiting for as yet unestablished commercial ventures to replace the space shuttles that were sent to the museum.  Now Biden declares an intent to create an irreversible path to "clean" energy that threatens the oil industry.  This is much the same activity as one in a parable of Jesus who tore down his barns to build bigger ones only to die before the replacement was complete.  To this one Jesus said "thou fool." (Luke 12:16-20)

This particular foolishness pursues a chimera (unattainable illusory goal).  It is understandable to fear the increase in natural disasters, however it is easily established that carbon is not the villain.  A temperature rise of only 1 degree Celsius beginning in 1800 mostly happened before the year 1955 that is stated for the beginning of carbon's effect.  Many scientists cite this as well other arguments as support for a dissenting opinion.  Yet other scientists say that the current warming trend is part of a larger warming going perhaps back to the last ice age.  Consensus then seems like a political opinion that his chosen its pundits and declared their rightness.  How much money is required to fight an irresistible force of nature?  Some say as least 300 trillion dollars.  Instead all the wealth of the world might not fix it and it would wrong the citizens of the world to foot the bill.

Then the electric cars touted to save us also have a fatal flaw.  Expensive lithium batteries lose considerable capacity with use.  I thought I remembered a datasheet specification of 65% capacity remaining 650 charge/discharge cycles.  When I examined another datasheet, I found 60% capacity remaining after 200 to 300 cycles for some high current conditions instead.  The poor people the advocates support are put in a bind.  By the time a used electric car drops to an affordable price it will have no range, the owner unable to afford a new battery.  As with welfare this "love" for the poor is dysfunctional trap.

Moreover, the current White House seems bent to destroy much of traditional America, Christian values and freedom, and the prosperity of a free market economy, to replace it irreversibly with one party secular socialism and that radical and perverse.

In the middle of this, I feel like Lot in Sodom and Gomorrah with wickedness maneuvering to deprive me of my rights.  And although I prefer the goodness of God and not his wrath, I know that all this evil brings severe judgment.  Instead of climate change, the wicked weather and other signs bode an approaching tribulation.

What would Jesus do?  He would rebuke the modern evil and call everyone to turn from this evil.

He would also tell your soul is at stake.  Search the Bible yourself and see that God does not deal lightly with sin.
