Jesus died for somebody’s sins . . .

There are many reactions to Jesus.  I can only imagine the extent of beliefs over the past 2,000 years.

Here was one that I found very sad.  It is quote from the singer Patti Smith.  I didn’t expect her to be a Jesus follower but it still made me sad.

 “Jesus died for somebody’s sins, but not mine” 

Mark 2:16-18

New International Version (NIV)

16 When the teachers of the law who were Pharisees saw him eating with the sinners and tax collectors, they asked his disciples: “Why does he eat with tax collectors and sinners?”

17 On hearing this, Jesus said to them, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”
