The Passion of the Christ_Greg Asimakoupoulos-Why Jesus would be a guest on The Ellen Degeneres Show Oh, by the way I heard that Mel
was on the Ellen Show.
Their passions are not quite the same.
He's hetero you know.

A Gibson girl this host is not.
We all know Ellen's gay.
And Mel's a bloody Jesus chap
who claims the narrow way.

But lest you judge the actor's choice
for being Ellen's guest,
consider what you know of Christ.
Let that be Prudent's test.

This rabbi ate with prostitutes.
He hung with the maligned
while those self-righteous holy types
were hateful and unkind.

Though criticized, the rabbi loved
to mix with those who sinned.
In fact the Good Book clearly states
he was the sinners' friend.

The bottom line? I think J.C.
would sit at Ellen's side.
The passion of the Christ was love
and that is why he died.

I agree. He would also have a heart-to-heart talk with her about her sins, and if she were responsive (i.e. repentant), would offer her forgiveness, and tell her to go and sin no more.

He would NOT, confuse love with indifference to her perverted desires and consequent self-destructive way of life. If she responded to his reproofs with huffy rejection, as did the Pharisees, he would leave her to wallow in her rebellion, after warning her of the consequences.

After all, that's what he did when he was ministering here. Why should we expect any difference in dealing with Ellen, or any others like her?

PO BOOKS BY GREG ASIMAKOUPOULOS
Sunday Rhymes & Reasons
Published June 4, 2009

Sunday Rhymes and Reasons is a compilation of inspirational poetry by America's pastor/poet laureate, Greg Asimakoupoulos. In this, his third volume of poetry, Pastor Greg paints word pictures that portray both the struggle and fulfillment that define a life of faith. His repertoire of rhymes celebrate rite-of-passage occasions like birth, baptism, marriage and death as well as the major holidays of the church and culture. It is a volume that illustrates the poet's love of words and of popular culture. The author dips his brush into a paint box of hubris, humor and honesty.

"Gloria and I have been encouraged by word pictures from Greg's pen that have celebrated both our ministry and God's presence in our world."Bill Gaither, Gospel music composer/performer

"Gifted poet Greg Asimakoupoulos is a dear friend of our family. His poetry blesses, comforts, entertains, and provides inspiration for every season of life."Natalie Grant, singer/songwriter/recording artist
