Everybody’s Jesus is

Democrat
Republican
conservative
communist
capitalist
socialist
pacifist
Buddhist
Baha’i
Muslim
Mormon

Everybody’ll have
a piece of Jesus.
Yum, yum.

Nobody’s Jesus is

rule breaker
Jew
convict
lowlife associate
plain spoken
antagonizer
miracle maker
woman respecter
child praiser
exclusivist
flawless
dead raiser
bleeder on a cross
empty tomb man

who said
‘Unless you eat my flesh
and drink my blood
you have no part with me. ’
Cannibal man?
Yum, yum.

Thanks, inc. You know I like a good list.

The Book says that many people left him after he said that hard thing. Maybe they laughed too. Definitely not the Jesus 'eveybody' wants a piece of.

Wow, that's really intense. Very moving. I love it. Am sending it on to several friends.

My scribblings are posted, too. Hope you'll drop in.
