If Jesus was a televangelist…

He would have asked for a “seed” from the centurion before he healed his servant.

He would have despised the widow who dropped her copper coins in the offering basket.

He would never have fed the 5000 but would have collected a “seed” from them instead.

He would never have condemned the actions of the Pharisees because they would have been his buddies.

No one would have brought the lady who was caught in the very act of adultery to him, because she may have been caught with him.

He would never have raised the son of the poor widow of Nain from the dead because she had no money.

He may have hit on Mary and Martha.

He would not have been able to condemn the attitude of the Pharisees towards divorce because he would have been the biggest culprit.

He may have given in to the temptations of the Devil in the wilderness because of his ignorance of God’s word.

He would have been stoned to death for demanding the tithes that were only lawful for the Priests to collect.

People would have thought that he was the rich man in the parable of Lazarus and the rich man.

He would never have gone to the cross because of God’s “promises” of abundant life.

We would have had to give an offering to obtain salvation and thus still be in our sins.

Thank God Jesus is not a televangelist!
