WWJD?

From my Right Honourable Colleague Stephen Gustitis over at the Defense Perspective, an excellent post about the Christian imperative for justice (tempered by mercy). I have often said that those of us who are Christians should read Matthew 25:34-46 for what it truly is, not a parable but a warning. This is doubly true, I think, for defense lawyers. “I was in prison and you came to visit me.”

  1. Patrick:
    The disconcerting truth of Matt 25 is that many around us expect to be separated and among the sheep, rather than the goats. Matt 25 reveals the need for a changed heart, (through the power of the Holy Spirit) so that we might properly respond to the “least of these.” In contrast to the unconscious goodness of the sheep, is the ostentation of the self-righteous.

  2. “In contrast to the unconscious goodness of the sheep, is the ostentation of the self-righteous.”

    Matthew 6:1-8. Very good point.
