If Jesus Were a Wimp, He Would not Have Been Doing His Job

Someone criticized Pope Francis for
Criticizing Donald Trump
Saying that the Pope should be
Loving and Forgiving

I thought the Pope is supposed to represent
Jesus on Earth

I don’t recall that Jesus was ever soft
On Hypocrites or Haters

Jesus was Loving and Forgiving;
Even to those who put Him up on the cross
“Forgive them, Father, for they know not what they do”
But He threw out the money changers
From the Temple
He confronted the Pharisees
He prevented the stoning of a woman
He healed and protected

Love is not weak
Forgiving is not appeasing
Teaching is not permitting others to continue
Their hurtful ways

I think Pope Francis is doing a good job
