…the scribal expert meant when he asked Jesus (Luke 10: 25), "And who is my neighbor?"
He should have known better, and so should we, whenever we ask Jesus a question that is actually an excuse. To see what Jesus did with that question, and how he turned it from a trick question into a time bomb, check out yesterday's message at Download wrongquestion.doc, along with some other stupid questions just begging for snappy answers like:
"Is there anbyody sitting in this [obviously empty] seat?" or
"Is it raining outside?"
And please reply by email to let me know if you think I applied Jesus' response correctly to a current situation.
