People are very selective about what they want to believe. And unfortunately, people do follow pastors who haven’t read enough. I tell people that Jesus did a whole lot of things that were contrary to laws that people seem to want to follow today. For example, on the Sabbath day, Jesus did a little healing. That got him in trouble. Jesus hung out with women, and many were prostitutes. That got him in trouble, too. But people have these preconceived views that won’t go away… For instance, I try as hard as I can never to use patriarchal language. You’ll never hear me say “Father God” or “He healed me.” We should try not to give God a gender, because of this fact: If you ask a black child what God looks like, the child will say, “Like a white man.” Why? They’ve been brainwashed by what they see and hear around them. I try to let people know that God is much bigger than gender or skin color or any label that comes from our finite little minds.
