Interesting Perspectives

I found this video by the late Rich Mullins on Youtube and I thought it was so good. 

Here is a quote from the video.  It’s the last part of it. 

“Jesus said, ‘Whatever you do to the least of these my brothers you’ve done it unto me.’ And this is what I’ve come to think. If I want to identify fully with Jesus Christ who I claim to be my Savior and Lord, the best way that I can do that is to identify with the poor. This I know will go against the teachings of all the popular evangelical preachers, but they’re just wrong. They’re not bad they’re just wrong. Christianity is not about building an absolutely secure little niche in the world where you can live with your perfect little wife and your perfect little children in a beautiful little house where you have no gays or minority groups anywhere near you. Christianity is learning to love like Jesus loved and Jesus loved the poor and Jesus loved the broken.”  –Rich Mullins

What a perspective!! 

Let me know what you think.

    I think Rich Mullins was way ahead of his time. I also think we read things like this and we agree on a certain level and we’re convicted of the truth and then we basically go on living exactly as we’ve been living with little or no change.

    Rich had interesting perspectives on many things and made the rest of us look at things in a way we had not thought of before.
    I miss him!

    I agree with you Greg, I sure would like to know what it was like to live out the Kingdom the way God intended, just once in my life anyway. (Or would I?)

    Andriah, until I found those video clips, I had never seen Rich Mullins. A friend introduced me to his music several years ago and I have thought the same thing as you. Though I had not known him or his music, I sure miss what he could have accomplished.

    Thanks for this wonderful reminder that Jesus loved the broken. Sometimes it gets pretty easy to think we live above that line of poor and broken and feel an air of superiority and disdain. You know, that “they brought it on themselves” mindset. But the longer I live, the more I realize that most of our problems come home-made, and I am ever so grateful that He lived and died for, and loves, the broken.
