The Mission of Jesus

Did Jesus come to earth simply to make some doctrinal corrections, or was his goal to teach us how to love? Did he come to "condemn heathens" or lift up the broken? Sure, social justice was on his mind, as he turned over tables of thieves and uptight religious leaders. As a result, I think it's important for us to find the true meaning of his messages. Feed the hungry. Care for orphans and widows. Love your neighbor. Turn the other cheek. Forgive others so the Father can forgive us. All who do these things are disciples of Jesus, and it's much more difficult and fulfilling than falling in line with the latest popular theologies.

Just some random thoughts of mine. What are your thoughts?
