There are many people who view Jesus in various ways as less than he really was while he walked the earth and who he is now. There are versions and perversions of scripture that twist and turn him into various ideologies and theologies that are far from the truth, and then there are some beliefs about him that are close to the truth and yet far enough away to distort the truth and have men following a false Christ.
Among all these various theories is the irrational idea that Jesus was a weak and effeminate man who would never speak an unkind or challenging word to anyone. How people have come to this conclusion is obvious. They do not know the holy scriptures because they have allowed what others teach to form their conception of Jesus and who he is and what he will or will not do. Obviously these people have utterly failed to obey the commandment of God found in II Timothy 2:15 to "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." Further they have neglected I Timothy 4:16 which admonishes everyone to "Take heed unto thyself and unto the doctrine; continue in them; for in so doing thou shalt both save thyself and them that hear thee." The first verse above starts with a verb, and anyone that has studied the English language knows that when a sentence begins with a verb, the subject is YOU. So then we are required to see this verse as reading; YOU study to show yourself approved and etc." To deny this is to deny proper grammatical law.
The second verse lets us know that there is doctrine we need to understand and adhere to. Notice that the scripture says "continue in THEM." Obviously there is more than one doctrine that needs to be understood and followed in God's Word. One of the most relevant doctrines in all of scripture is Christology or the doctrine of Christ. To be wrong in this doctrine leads to many serious errors as he is the central theme of the entire Bible. Let's begin with the placid, pleasing, tolerant and loving Jesus.
