The love of Christ knows no heart that it cannot soften. A great example of this just appeared on the sitcom, “Last Man Standing.” Tim Allen gets a lot of flack for talking about Jesus, but this scene shows he won’t back down.
In this episode, Allen’s onscreen son-in-law, Ryan, is upset with his son, Boyd, after learning he had confessed to stealing. Ryan’s afraid that his son’s Christian friend, Kyle, got him to confess by making him afraid of God. Ryan tells his friend, Kyle,
>”I want Boyd to tell the truth because it’s the right thing to do, and not because he thinks he’s gonna be punished by an angry God.”
Ryan thinks he’s caught in a one-dimensional idea of Christianity, but then Kyle replies,
“I never said that,” Kyle replied. “Boyd was scared that if he told you what he did, you wouldn’t love him anymore. So I said you were like my friend Jesus, and even if I do something bad, as long as I’m honest, He still loves me.”
How’s that for a mic drop?
The love of Jesus will always confound the non-believer, but that’s okay. We love Jesus Christ because He first loved us.
We support Tim Allen for keeping Jesus on the show!
