Remember when we were studying Luke Ch 6 and the little part about Jesus healing the man with the withered hand on the Sabbath? Reading their corrupt hearts, Jesus asks the Pharisees if it is lawful to do good or to do harm, to save life or to destroy it. His point was not so much in revealing the the correct answer, though that is what we get from the exchange. What seems bigger here is that Jesus revealed the malice of their hearts. The pharisees were acting, um...a bit intolerant, wouldn't you say? After all, the law was meant to be followed - is it not? How can we have this healing stuff going on when we're supposed to be resting. How dare the Lord of glory emancipate people from their bondage when we're supposed to be in mandatory NAPTIME. The Pharisees got so ticked off at Jesus' intolerance of their behavior, that they were infuriated and plotted to put an end to Him.
Fast forward to yesterday...Heard on the radio that some Californians were real ticked off at the bigoted Christians for having their way with the Marriage prop. So much so they were infuriated and stomped all over a nice lady's cross. How audacious of her to show up at their rally with that inconvenient symbol of healing and emancipation. How....intolerant.
