Oh please, let's not get too complicated about this.

What would Jesus do?

He would heal the sick and cleanse the lepers-- that means deliver those with AIDS, Cancer, infertility, Alzheimer's, Lou Gehrig's Disease, Diabetes, etc of their diseases by healing them.

He would cast out demons -- demons of addiction, alcoholism, lust, greed, unforgiveness.

He would preach the gospel of the kingdom -- not the law and legalism. But he would preach "Believe on me and the holiness of God and the terribleness of sin and the surety of hell without Christ." And he would preach that we should occupy the kingdom... not by conquering the things of Ceasar's kingdom but by fighting the good fight against unbelief and spiritual evil in the world. He would preach that we are more than conquerors through faith in Him because he has conquered the world.

He would make disciples -- Not merely folks who assent to the basic gospel message but folks who would truly be called out of the world.

So, why don't we do what Jesus would do? And why do we act as if what Jesus would do is all a matter of some weird community project of some matter of behavior. Jesus called us to transform the world by his power not by endless discussion.
