Consider what two imperfect men said of the same perfect man.
39 And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us.
40 But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?
41 And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss.
Is Christ to you the one you yell at and try to coerce to act on your behalf to prove Himself to you, or do you accept that he was a sinless man, God in the Flesh, and is an instrument of Love, self-sacrifice, and reconciliation.
When you consider the cross itself and what Jesus did on behalf of mankind. Do you see a judge or a vengeful God? Or do you see Mercy and Long Suffering, and a road to peace.
Did Christ come to the world to condemn it? Or did he come to save it?
Does he have power or does he not?
Can you know Him, or can't you?
Must he prove Himself to you? Or has he already done enough to prove Himself?
Was Christ a man evolved from an ape? Or is Christ the perfect Created man who has power over Nature itself?
Is God condemnation? Or is God Love?
If you were on a cross next to Jesus, being crucified...
Which thief would you be?
