I’m sure somebody said it…

Keri received this in an E-mail last week and I thought it was worth passing on.  Taken from Claudia Barba – “I think I know what somebody said…”

  1. When the palsied man was lowered through the roof to be healed: “We ain’t never done it that way before.”
  2. While picking up 12 baskets of leftovers after the 5000 were fed: “What a mess!”
  3. When Jesus gathered little children into His arms: “Don’t you have more important things to do?”
  4. When He called for self-denial and cross-bearing: “Sorry—that’s not my style.”
  5. When He chose the unlearned and ignorant to be His disciples: “They’re not in our target demographic.”
  6. When they heard Jesus was a Nazarene: “He’s  from the wrong side of the tracks.”
  7. When He announced that the last would be first:  “That’s not fair.”
  8. When He honored a widow with only two mites and sent a rich young ruler away sorrowful: “He really ought to cultivate friendships with wealthy donors.”
  9. When Jesus allowed a woman to anoint His feet with her tears and wipe them with her hair: “Why can’t He  be more dignified?”
  10. When He taught by telling stories: “His preaching is shallow.”
  11. When He talked with the woman at the well, when He ate with publicans and sinners, when the common people heard Him gladly: “He attracts riffraff.”
  12. When Jesus took only Peter, James, and John up the mountain of transfiguration: “He’s playing favorites.”
  13.  When He accepted worship and forgave sins: “Who does He think He is? God?”
  14.  When He was crucified: “What a failure.”
