Jesus Come In Me

So, is that from a porn video or from a modern hymn?  Could be either, right?  Actually, it’s from some modern evangelical sing along / chorus. I think it’s actually “Jesus Come Into Me” as relayed from a friend who allowed his shop/business space to be rented by some hipster evangelicals–or as I like to call them, evangelical nut jobs.  My friend told this to me during a vesper liturgy for the Annunciation.

I told him that I don’t like that kind of music.  I call it, “I want to french kiss you, Jesus” kind of music.  Since I am a straight guy, french kissing Jesus is pretty disgusting to me, but modern evangelical music has these disgusting homoerotic undertones.  Plus, to be honest, it’s just bad theology.  On Easter, we celebrate Jesus rising from the dead in a physical body.  On Ascension, we celebrate Jesus ascending into heaven in a physical body.  The only way Jesus can come into me is if he 1) puts his tongue in one of my orifices, 2) puts a finger in one of my orifices, or 3) puts his dick in one of my orifices.  All three options sound horrible to me.  He is a physical person, fully God and fully man.  He is not a spirit.

What the Orthodox pray is for the Holy Spirit to “come and abide in us”.  The evangelical call to have “Jesus come into me” is either gay, or a denial of Jesus humanity and corporeal reality–a confusing of the Trinity.

O Heavenly King, the Comforter, the Spirit of Truth, Who art everywhere and fillest all things; Treasury of Blessings, and Giver of Life – come and abide in us, and cleanse us from every impurity, and save our souls, O Good One.
