Jesus Is Too Tough For You

I think Jesus is actually too tough for most people. Too strong, too powerful, too convicting, too revolutionary. When He walked the earth, almost no one was willing to follow Him. And it wasn’t because He was too weak, or effeminate, or mild. No, it was because people were intimidated by Him and His challenge and His high standards.

The great irony is that since He walked the earth, we’ve managed to emasculate Jesus, making Him into a warm, fuzzy and pretty boring character, and so men stay away from church. The same men who wouldn’t have had the marbles to follow Jesus.

Anyway, I could go on, but if you doubt me about Jesus being a tough, intimidating, revolutionary leader, read Revelation 19 and especially these verses.
