Stephen Colbert, Sermon On The Mount, Homosexuality

Regardless of your thoughts on Homosexuality, this video shows the prophetic power of the Sermon On The Mount. When you give someone the ability to insult, overpower, and attack you, it is also taken away. Jesus taught to turn the other cheek as a means to really say, “I dare you to hit me again. Lets see how evil you really are.” He taught to give them all your clothes, when they ask for an article of it. Being naked was an offense, not for the naked person but for the one taking the clothes away. Force people to overpower you, and you expose them for the evil they are.

 

Stephen Colbert gets it, and this is why he is our most famous prophet! (http://wp.me/pFnzm-ce)

  1. This is good. The Christlike response to evil has the power to transform evil to good. Jesus knew this ans tries to teach it to us, yet we, like the powers that be in His time, resist this teaching, try to negate it with fancy words and arguments on how it is unrealistic.

    I don’t know if you’ve seen Carlos story http://www.potsc.com/uncategorized/cruelty-man-cards-and-2nd-chances/ but he is transformed when Ingrid demonstrates the Christlike position in turning the other cheek, returning love and good for evil.

    Colbert may get it, apparently I don’t because none of this makes sense with your headline?

    • Mike Friesen says:

      The lessons Stephen is teaching from, are deeply rooted in the authority of the Sermon On The Mount. Forcing someone to pull an evil hand (the kid saying kiss me, after being called a queer), is in the same creative energy as turn the other cheek, give them all of your clothes, walk the extra mile. The work of the teenage kid being called a kid a queer, is similar to the work and teachings of Jesus.

  3. I was waiting for sarcasm, but there was none.

    The message is very valid in regard to Identity – one of my favourite teaching topics.

    We cannot have a thought in our head about ourselves that Jesus does not have in his.

  4. thanks so much for sharing this, mike

    A friend of mine used to use this comeback with insults: “I know I am, but what are you?”. It really confused the insulter and made it into a non-offensive joke 🙂 haha

  6. that was cool. Thanks for sharing that. Loved your connection to Jesus teachings.
