Does this video offend you? Did it make you laugh? For me the answer is: yes.
It is offensive because it makes Jesus out to be petty and judgmental and shallow. Its funny because as we watch Jesus make His rounds, He acts in a way that doesnt match the biblical setting or spirit of scripture. And yet its offensive again because this Jesus speaks it provides a severe indictment of how Christianity operates because it DOES match some of the petty behaviors that go on within our churches and Christian culture.
So while this video does not represent the way scripture portrays Jesus it does say how we as Christians portray Jesus to others. This video doesn’t fit the way God is but it does match the perception of who God is. Let this challenge us to paint a picture of a loving forgiving Savior and not a petty faultfinder looking for ways to keep us out of heaven because, like the man said, “we’re all evil, there is no hope–thats it.”
