What Wouldn't Jesus Do?

If you're from any era pre-2010, you've most probably heard the phrase "What Would Jesus Do?". It's a good phrase. Makes us stop and think about our actions and reactions, just as the clever person that coined it intended, I'm sure.

But here you are. This is the moment. Real. Life. And something crazy is happening. "Quick! I better glance at my WWJD silicone wristband from Sunday School to help me stop, think, and solve this problem like Jesus would!!"

But, y'all, what wouldn't Jesus do?!

Good Guys Breaking the Law

Yep, you read it right. Breaking the law. Disobeying the order by which a particular region (country, community, or otherwise) regulates the actions of its members.

Sometimes people do bad things, and have to own up to the consequences of their bad actions, spending large portions of their lives behind bars, or sometimes even paying with their lives. We all know about this. But fewer and fewer modern-day Christians really consider when they might be thrown in prison for breaking the law, and why that would be God's will for their life, in certain cases. Because, in history (and let's remember that history repeats itself), people have spent time in prisons, and given their lives, for breaking the law, because it was more important to them to follow God's Word.
