Do you know what Jesus would not be doing? He would not be asking “What Would Jesus Do?” As soon as you ask yourself that question, you are already not doing what Jesus would do. I’m not saying that it is a bad thing or a good thing, I’m just pointing out something I find rather curious.
So, what would Jesus do? He would use his brain, he would think for himself. He would know his Bible inside-out, know of the contradictions, know of the multiple contrasting voices speaking throughout the Bible, but use those contrasts and conflicts as inspiration to help determine, based on reason, love and compassion, what the right course of action is.
If your method of thinking about things involves prayer and Bible study, that’s fine! Just please don’t think that you are required to turn off your brain. Use it. I cannot imagine why God would give you a brain and then expect you not to use it, wouldn’t that be an evil thing to do?
