When they came to the place called the Skull, they crucified him with criminals, one on his right, the other on his left. Jesus said…
Father, I can not forgive that man down there in the front.
He has too much facial hair.
That guy beside him can’t be forgiven either.
He has a serious problem with body odor.
That woman just a few feet from the man with the chipped teeth,
I have heard some ugly rumors about her. No forgiveness there.
That man below me is a Centurion.
I don’t like his occupation, so there will be no forgiveness for him either.
There’s a woman down there who’s hair is too short.
And her husband’s hair is too long. That’s not right, no forgiveness.
That lovely lady next to the tax collector wears too much jewelry.
I will not forgive her for being so flashy.
The girl next to her is filthy.
And cleanliness is next to Godliness, so I can’t forgive her either.
God only helps those who help themselves,
So that beggar over there receives no forgiveness.
That child is too young to understand the mysteries of God
And his grandfather is too senile to understand anything.
I can not forgive any of these.
There’s a boy over there under the shade that is too tall.
And four feet below him is a grown man who is too short.
That person by the rock with the scroll is a nerd.
I can’t forgive anyone that society frowns on.
It just wouldn’t look right.
That man who carried the cross for me when I fell…
His skin is too dark.
And that man on the opposite side of the crowd who wouldn’t go near him,
His skin is too light.
All of those Gentiles make me sick
They are not the chosen ones
I will not forgive anyone who is a different race than I am.
That gentleman down there has a tattoo
That lady beside him is pierced in strange places
I refuse forgiveness to that man with the beady eyes.
I just can’t trust him.
And that one next to him with the blood shot eyes.
He looks like he is on drugs, so you can forget about him.
This one’s nose is too big.
This one doesn’t have a chin.
This one’s too fat.
This one over here is too skinny.
That one over there has big ears.
That one one’s got a crooked smile.
This one has bad breath, I can smell it from up here.
This one hasn’t bathed in a week.
This one doesn’t know who her father is.
That one doesn’t know how to dress.
Those people over there are poor.
On and on and on Christ went, calling out every error that the people below had no control over. It was now about the sixth hour and darkness came over the whole land until the ninth hour when Jesus finished. For thet sun stopped shining, and the curtain of the temple was torn in two. Jesus called out with a loud voice, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit, let’s start over on another planet.”
If Jesus had been as superficial as you are, when he died upon the cross, would you have received forgiveness?
