What Would Jesus Do v. What Did Jesus Do
What Would Jesus Do became a slogan some years ago as a way for Christians to witness to their faith in God. However, on some topics, like abortion and homosexuality and possibly other hot- button issues of our day, Jesus did and said nothing. Asking What Would Jesus Do leads to speculation and disagreement.
But by looking at what Jesus actually did, speculation is reduced and we are able to focus on issues we know were concerns of Jesus. Mainline Christians tend to focus more now on the second question and not the first question.
