"I am the Alpha and the Omega"
"Foxes have holes and birds have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head."
You can only be the King of Kings as a Tramp. None of Jesus' teaching makes sense until you understand he's a Tramp. If you follow his teaching exactly, you end up a Tramp. But he's a Supertramp, living a Trillionaire lifestyle despite being penniless and having no fixed abode.
When I talk to people at church, they don't seem to understand this, maybe because they don't want to give up their possessions to follow him.
Until you are a Tramp, you are not following Jesus. You are merely confessing him.
Jesus was a carpenter though not some homeless vagrant.
The two aren't mutually exclusive. You can be a vagrant carpenter.
Look up the definition of the word "vagrant". It implies all they do is beg or do work given to them such as porter work
>a person without a settled home or regular work who wanders from place to place and lives by begging
Fair enough, he's not a vagrant then because he doesn't live by begging. In my OP I didn't call him a vagrant though. I should have said "Itinerant" :
>a person without a settled home or regular work who wanders from place to place and lives by carpentry
>he was a carpenter not a vagrant by definition
>actually he is
*mason. Original greek text says tekton
he was a carpenter with joseph until he took to the road to spread his message, during which time he was indeed a homeless bum.
I think wandering for a long ass time makes you a vagrant
Wandering makes you itinerant, wandering and begging makes you vagrant (I just found out)
why is this board filled with protestant schizos?
I'm a muslim though...
Hitler was a homeless Tramp.
Ok kewl, what do you think about Jesus though?
Jesus was ok but his followers are thickheads.
This is a mass produced statue
Is that a bad thing?
I hate homeless people.
Does that include Jesus?
In the gospel of mark Jesus comments as an expert on the poor construction of the cross he's hung on
