Jesus LIVED for his beliefs, and he proved that he was willing to DIE for those beliefs. That’s balls.
Most Christians today can’t even imagine what that means. They won’t acknowledge that our Messiah was criminalized by govt and society for teaching love and fairness. They gloss over the fact he was executed as an enemy of the state. He did what was right, not what was allowed.
Dr. King had balls. He was arrested, beaten and imprisoned as an enemy of the state, for teaching love and fairness, not just for his people, but for all people. Over 30 times. Like Christ, he was considered dangerous, even though he carried no weapons, nor did he ever preach violence. And, like Christ, he was executed, in public, as a message to his followers.
When you live with purpose, death isn’t a concern. So, live like you got a pair.
