One Response to Supply Side Jesus

    I love the idea of supply side Jesus. This can only happen because so many ‘Christians’ have never actually read the Bible. They may be familiar with the famous stories and verses, but most have never actually studied it. This makes it easier for people to make their conception of Jesus fit their existing worldview.

    It is amazing the number of people who really believe that Jesus said “God helps those who help themselves”. My grandparents told me about a time that a woman in their sunday school class said that was her favorite bible verse. When it was pointed out that statement is not in the Bible her response was “Well it should be”
