It never ceases to amaze this simple poet, of the snobbery among some,
who believe that Jesus only cared for the “Chosen” of His day.
If you look at the Bible you will see that this was not always correct,
for at times, there were “outsiders” who had stronger faith then they.
Let us not think for a moment that one Christian Church or denomination,
is preferred as a group over others, simply because they profess it is so.
We can’t label all members alike, for following Christ is a continuous walk,
through prayer, Bible study, and helping others, so our own faith will grow.
“Then Jesus went thence, and departed into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon. And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil. But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us. But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me. But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it to dogs. And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table. Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.” – Matthew 15:21-28 (KJV)
