Someone named “Tico and Tina” posted this on Instagram and asked if it were doing more harm than good.
I am willing to accept it as good if you can show me an example of where Christ did something similar.
When he met the woman at the well, did he hand her a bucket, watch her try to drink only to find it empty and then say, “Disappointed? You won’t be disappointed in the living water?” Did he not engage with her at all and instead just leave some fake drachmas by the well?
And when he healed someone, did he ever just pretend heal them and then say whatever was Aramaic for “Pysch! Disappointed your leg is still crippled? God’s love will never disappoint you.”
I don’t remember any of that ever happening but I’m no scholar. I’m just a handsome blogger, but maybe there’s more to life than just being really, really, really ridiculously good looking?
Let’s quit creating tracts that try to sucker punch people into Jesus.
