Jesus. Can I be you?
Can I have your "job"?
You know it's been a couple of thousand years since you've had your feet on terra ferma. Don't know where you are but have you noticed things are kinda falling apart around here. And no matter what your "true beleivers" tell me I can try and "emulate" you and live as you would but I can't heal like you could.
That fellow with his friends the other day, just 2 blocks from the school, drinking Lysol from the white plastic A&P shopping bag....Can I go up to him and touch him on the shoulder and "heal" him
Those women I read about....one tried to burn herself and her her daughters, the other cut her babies arms off...can I wrap my arms around them, and put things in reverse, and everything will be ok
How about the soldier in Africa who after raping a women, tried to force her son to have intercourse with her, and when he refused took him out to the field and shot him in the head. Can I put my hands on his shoulders, and remove all that biiter hate and pain from his heart.
Fact is.... Jesus I can't do any of this, but I sure wish I could.
So it seems you and your dad have some timetable we are not privy to, and you could be abscent for another couple of centuries or so. All I am asking is for a bit a repreive here.
Can I have your power just for a short time.
I promise not to abuse it.
I just want to help.
PS I'd even be willing to do the stake/cross thing.
