|Would you follow him?|
Everyone wants to follow the ‘glamorous’ Messiah not found in the pages of the Bible.
We think of him, mainly due to how Hollywood portrays him, as a beautiful, tanned, blue-eyed, thirty something Messiah, who is received by all. Ever smiling, always upbeat and abundant in mercies and forgiveness, you would cross the street just to greet him.
Each Sunday, churches across the land give praises to this ‘glamorous’ Messiah; his name projected high up on screens, with hands held high we give him worship. Some are moved by joy and others to tears at the mere mention of his name. He incites such religious fervour wherever he goes.
This ‘glamorous’ Messiah is never short of friends. He’s the centre of attention and everyone wants to be around him. When he jokes, they all laugh. He sets the trends everyone else follows. Ever popular, always liked and never ever despised and rejected, he has friends on Facebook in the droves.
