Would 'ya like to buy a Jesus?

We recently watched The Big Kahuna in a few of the Bible classes I teach. I was struck again with this quote by Phil (Danny Devito)...

“It doesn’t matter whether you’re selling Jesus or Buddha or civil rights or ‘How to Make Money in Real Estate With No Money Down.’ That doesn’t make you a human being; it makes you a marketing rep. If you want to talk to somebody honestly, as a human being, ask him about his kids. Find out what his dreams are - just to find out, for no other reason. Because as soon as you lay your hands on a conversation to steer it, it’s not a conversation anymore; it’s a pitch. And you’re not a human being; you’re a marketing rep.”

Please stop trying to market Jesus! He doesn't need it!!

Prove to me that you are redeemed, then we won't need to argue if there is a redeemer.

(i know there is more to say, there's more i'd like to say about all this, but i must get back to typing... more later)
