Jesus Loves Me But He Can't Stand You
I know you smoke, I know you drink that brew
I just can't abide a sinner like you
God can't either, that's why I know it to be true that
Jesus loves me--but he can't stand you
I'm going to heaven, boys, when I die
'Cause I've crossed every "t" and I've dotted every "i'
My preacher tell me that I'm God's kind of guy; that's why
Jesus loves me--but you're gonna fry
God loves all his children, by gum
That don't mean he won't incinerate some
Can't you feel those hot flames licking you
Woo woo woo
I'm raising my kids in a righteous way
So don't be sending your kids over to my house to play
Yours'll grow up stoned, left-leaning, and gay; I know
Jesus told me on the phone today
Jesus loves me, this I know
And he told me where you're gonna go
There's lots of room for your kind down below
Whoa whoa whoa
Jesus loves me but he can't stand you . . .
The greatest need of our time is for koionia, the call simply to be the church, to love one another, and to offer our lives for the sake of the world.
What do you think would happen to our world if we truly lived out Jesus last discourse: If you love me, you will keep my commandment. And I will ask the Father and He will give you another advocate to be with you forever. This is the Spirit of Truth.
Friends, we can make a difference. Are you (me included) willing to step out of our comfortable place and truly show love, grace and kindness to our neighbor ?
