What Would Jesus Do?

The expression, “What would Jesus do,” has almost if not quite reached the stage of blasphemy and it is to be hoped that it will be given a rest.

When a man uses it as a guide for his own conduct it is most commendable, but when he applies it to the life of others he travesties the life and character and omnipotence of the Christ. The man who judges for himself what Jesus would do and tries to do it will dignify the cause of religion.

The man who judges for others what Jesus would do assists in making a mockery of religion.
