The Jesus that doesn’t fit into the usual conservative christian religious concepts of morality and conformity defies any attempt to classify or label Him. He is a Rebel because He Revels in freedom, instead of bondage or authority. He is a Law-breaker because His Love compels Him to act contrary to the man-made laws, such as healing the sick on the Jewish Sabbath days. He is a Friend of prostitutes because He sees them as fellow human beings, not labelling or discriminating them based on their outward profession or performance but affirming and accepting them for who they intrinsically are – beloved and blameless daughters of God, and divine goddesses. And yes, He is a Hater of Religion because He is against any form of religious fundamentalism and beckons us to come to Him and experience the Real Rest, for real rest is the best for our souls when we can live freely and lightly without any shame or guilt, like little children. We can enjoy life and discover miracles with childlike wonder as we recover our inner child.
