Guest Post: I Think Jesus Would Be Angry

by Cassidy Steele-Stewart

I think Jesus would be angry

I think Jesus would be angry
or saddened
or both
if he watched the news right now

I think Jesus would be angry
like he was in the temple
when he drove out the rich
to make room for the poor

I think Jesus would be saddened
like he was at the leaders
who said laws
were more important
than love

I think Jesus would be angry
as he said
suffer the children
not
let children suffer (in cages)

I think Jesus would be saddened
to know that
do unto others
has turned to
hit first and hit hard

I think Jesus would be angry
or saddened
or both
if he watched the news right now

    Well said. I agree. It’s unfortunate that so many in our church prefer to believe that Jesus would be fine with all the things you mentioned, but that he would be angry at things like loving gay couples getting married.

    I couldn’t agree more. Thank you for your post.
