As Iron Sharpens Iron

An ongoing and online discussion between: an Orthodox informed Ecumaniac without a denominational home, an ordained Baptist youth pastor with an open mind, a Calvinist worship leader/seminarian with a staggering vocabulary and ability to make a point, and a cradle Catholic with a love/hate relationship to Rome.

WWJ?

The What Would Jesus Do slogan is pretty irrelevant because Jesus consistently does the unexpected and miraculous. Behind on your taxes? Catch a fish and pay with the money in its mouth. At a party and the beer has run out? Make some more on the spot. Vendors are cheating churchgoers? Overturn their tables and whip them out of the building. Dead? Arise in three days! These aren't actions any of us are equipped to try at home. A better rule of life would be "What wold the saints do?" They're the ones who, with no guarantee of miraculous intervention, humbled themselves in imitation of Christ.

When I saw the WWJB graphic, I recalled a bumpersticker I saw once, "Who Would Jesus Bomb?"
