I know who Christ is
And he never hung with the Saints it makes no sense to save the righteous
Cyhi is Christian.
In the Christian religion, Christ had 12 disciples, the fishers of men, some of who would go on to become Saints in the Catholic religion due to their piety.
Cyhi questions that if they were really that righteous and saint-like, they wouldn’t need saving.
Jesus also spent his time with the “sinners” of his day- prostitutes, tax collectors for the Roman occupiers, etc. He often came into conflict with the “righteous” Jewish religious teachers of his day, the Pharisees, because of this. His defense? “It is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick” -Matt 9:12, Mark 2:17, Luke 5:31
Cyhi’s theology here is spot-on
Matthew 9:13 — “But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”
Mark 2:17 — “When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.”
