If Jesus is definitely Who you say He is.
He probably did not say many of the things you say he said--
especially those things about sheep and goats, good and evil.

I was initially puzzled: from the outside and probably unfairly, I perceive US conservative Protestants as being very into Dividing Humans into Good and Evil. But I'm thinking that what you mean is the behavioral rationale on which the division is made? (Of course, US conservative Protestantism as I understand it emphasizes Belief Alone for Salvation, weirdly combined with monitoring, censoring and limiting other people's behaviour.)

Well, i guess i was saying that the scholarship i most trust ("Q" hypothesis, Jesus Seminar) can vouch (more or less) for about 18 percent of the words attributed to Jesus. None of those words were used in Father Rohr's meditation. The action, according to Q1 was personal action independent of institutions==much like Buddhist or Taoist "action>" There is more of Plato's Academu and less of Habitat for Humanity (though that is a fine, not unChristian program.)

kayre helped me to understand what you're saying-- I think!

Was the "you" of your original post Fr Rohr specifically? If so I misread you.

Thanks for explaining, though I am a bad reader!

Rohr stimulated concern i have for a long time, taking the Bible to be the word of God and the gospels (or worse yet, Paul) to be the "Word of Jesus." I consider Rohr to be an important part of the interspiritual community. sometimes i wish he would show more of the sensitivity to others in that community (which i am sure he harbors),

I think he's a Mensch impaired by White male privilege. :/ And perhaps by his more recent rise to the status of Poster Boy for Liberal Jesus.
