To some Christians, the phrase “What Would Jesus Do?” has become synonymous with emulating a person that stands at the focal point of their faith. To walk hand in hand with their saviour figuratively speaking. Christians don’t emulate Christ because he was some divine individual. True Christ followers emulate the guy because of the stories of what he did. The only problem is, what we know of Christ only exists in the good book, I doubt anyone can say for sure how Christ was really like and what he would do today.
Would he hang up on telemarketers? Would he accept incoming spam? Would he turn the other cheek with bad customer support for his webhost? I don’t know and I don’t think most faithful Christians do either.

What would Mel do?
Probably a whole lot more than I’m doing right now. But that’s the beauty of it, because faith, hope and love are only but concepts we create. At the end of it, it’s what it inspires us to accomplish and become. People can have their Prophets and their Saviours. I have an alpha female who puts her thumb on my forehead and I can tell you, that’s a more real than abstract concepts but at least this time, I know what she would do when you need to split the phone and house bill 4 ways.
