She thought it was saying that Jesus doesn't give eternal life.
I wasn't sure how she saw that in the quote, but I kindly responded to her comment, explained the meaning, and affirmed Jesus gives eternal life.
She wrote back immediately, all caps, angrily proclaiming that Jesus gives eternal life.
She's a good illustration of some problems we all have from time to time when we:
- Don't listen.
- Jump to conclusions.
- Don't give others the benefit of the doubt.
- Ignore the facts.
- Mistakenly think we're being righteous.
"Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires."
Isn't it a blessing that the Bible understands our human hearts and speaks directly to them!
