Chapter 1 - You Say You Love Me

If Jesus was to come back in 2020 I could only imagine what he’d say...

You say you love me and yet you do not help your brothers and sisters when they are suffering, starving, ill, oppressed, unjustly imprisoned, denied basic human rights, persecuted, and seek refuge from ugly wars, death, and destruction.

You say you love me and yet you do not help your brothers and sisters when they are struggling, without basic human needs like, clothing, shelter, proper hygiene, and healthcare.

You say you love me and yet you place divisions between your brothers and sisters with physical, social, economic, and racial boundaries. As if one is superior to another, when in reality we are all God’s children, and equal in his eyes.

You say you love me and yet you pervert my teachings and you justify crimes against your brothers and sisters, and put conditions upon your love for them.

You pervert the lesson behind my sacrifice on the day of my crucifixion by saying you love me as if every wretched sin you have committed against your brothers and sisters will be instantly forgiven, simply because you say you love me. But what you do unto them, you do unto me.

You come to my father’s house, worshiping me, and taking my lessons.

Twisting the morals and making your own versions of them.

You turn my words into something that you want to hear.

I came down to this earth many centuries ago to teach you all the ways of how human beings should live and treat each other. Me and my father gave you all the tools, we gave you all free will. But free will comes at a price.

With free will comes responsibility and expectation.

Take the tools and parables that I gave you all of those centuries ago and live by them. Live by their true meanings...

I can only imagine that Jesus might say these things, but in my heart I feel like this point could be true.

If we are being tested in 2020 who can say honestly who’s passed and who’s failed?

I sometimes wonder if people truly understand the unconditional love and sacrifice that came with the crucifixion.

β€œWhat you are willing to lay down, to sacrifice with unconditional love, for your brothers and sisters as I did on the day of my crucifixion.”

That was the final lesson, he was willing to sacrifice his life for his brothers and sisters, to show his unconditional love for us, to save us from ourselves and show us the way, to show us the true meaning of unconditional love and sacrifice.
