I looked over to the lost-and-found shelf and saw a leather-bound notebook. I felt
like taking it. Ah, there it is. If they didn't reinstate me, I'd take it. If I was reinstated,
whoever left that notebook at the Kingdom Hall would probably be happy I was
reapproved for association and wouldn't mind if I took it. “Do you have a worldly
girlfriend?” Brother Miller asked and squinted. “No,” I said. He cleared his throat
and Brother Rodgers sucked in air through his teeth. “Gabe, lying to us isn't going

They forget that God is more concerned about people's hearts than about the
clothes they wear, the color of their hair, or how “Christian” they act. The best way
to live for Christ without looking like a jerk isn't just to live for Jesus, but to try to
live like Jesus! Jesus talked to people about God, he challenged them to live
better lives, and he spoke up when things weren't the way they were supposed to
be. But Jesus was never a jerk! He was gentle, humble, caring, and forgiving.

He was part of a bad gang and now he works for a total jerk. The same jerk who
almost beat me up the other day.” “I don't believe you. How dare you...you...you're
the jerk.” “Please Pris. I know you like him but you have got to believe me. He isn't
what you think. At least ask him before...” “SHUT UP! YOU'RE A LIAR. YOU...
JUST SHUT UP!” Priscilla walked to the door and opened it. She turned around
and pointed her finger at Jen. “I thought we were starting to be friends but I see I

I like it when God shows me grace, too — or brings me a candy bar. It's
Halloween, and she found a way to use this pagan holiday to show Christ's love.
That's something I love about my wife! She has only really known Jesus for six
years, and seems free of the cultural trappings. Come on over and observe her in
her natural habitat for a while, and you will see what I mean. (On second thought,
better call first.) My wife tells me when I am being a jerk, and I love that. How else
would I ...

I learned a great deal about the character of God and the history of his dealings
with mankind. I learned lots of doctrine and guidelines and rules for Christian
living. Yet despite all my vast storehouse of information, I was not becoming more
like Jesus. In fact, quite the opposite was true. I was becoming a rigid, legalistic
jerk. (Don't worry about my using the word jerk in a Christian book. It is a biblical
term. It comes from the Greek jerkolopolis.) It was a long road, but I finally came to

He exemplified his words in the way he lived and the way he died. Jesus walked
the walk and showed us the way but we're still missing it. The more I think about it
and the deeper I dig, I come to a question that I believe to be the heart of the
matter. At the same time, it almost seems trite. I want to challenge you with this
question; do you love Jesus? This isn't Sunday school or a church class; so don't
give the knee jerk predictable answer. Are you really in love with Jesus? It's easy
to say ...

The world is smeared with the slime of Raca talk: “idiot,” “moron,” “retard,” “
worthless jerk,” “pervert,” “unwanted”— I'm sure you can think of worse labels. We
fling our Raca words on convicts, the elderly, the ethnically different, the
uneducated, the overeducated, men, women, atheists, fetuses, immigrants,
addicts, paranoid schizophrenics and just about anyone on the wrong side of an
issue. Is there a better way? Yes, Jesus said, and it begins with the plain brown
seed of “do not ...

The news isn't good. Mistreated children who are armed not with the golden rule
but with fantasies of vengeance picked up from TV or movies may indeed fight
back, only to be wounded or killed by a handgun. Parents and teachers must let
children ... People often try to get revenge or make a point because,
unconsciously, they're hoping for a radical change in the offending party, who'll
say, “I've been a real jerk, haven't I?” or “Wow, you're a lot smarter/stronger/
tougher than I thought!

Pujols isn't a jerk; he's just obsessed with hitting and has no time for small talk or
horseplay. Those who know him best would agree with Miklasz's assessment that
Pujols isn't a jerk. Yes, he's direct, and yes, he's intent on developing his skills—
but not for his own glorification. “He recognizes that God gave him talent, but boy,
he's going to work his butt off to be the very best that he possibly can be,” says
Jeff Adams, Pujols' pastor at Kansas City Baptist Temple. “He's just a no-

Jesus would love him. So whatdo you need to do? Take on the eyes of Jesus and
see this person, no longer as a jerk, but as someone Jesus loves and died for. Oh
, that's tough. In the words of nineteenthcentury Scottish theologianJohn Brown, “
Holiness does not consist in mystic speculations, enthusiastic fervours, or
uncommanded austerities; it consists in thinking as God thinks, and willing as
God wills.” 1 In other words, holiness isn't something we can magically conjure
up.
