You didn’t answer the question. Do you think, had Christ been washing feet, and this young woman was before her, he would have denied her? Skipped her? Called her an apostate and moved on? Rained down fire and brimstone upon her? What do you think he would have done?
Jesus performed many miracles for non-believers. He used the miracles to demonstrate he was filled with the spirit of God. He did not determine if they were believers beforehand.
And, if the ultimate goal is to convert this young woman to Christianity, don’t you think washing her feet and showing the compassion of Christ would be more effective that ignoring or castigating her?
I don’t think Christ would choose someone who believes He, and His followers should be DEAD. He DIDN’T choose the non-believers or the Pharisees- he chose his disciples.
If you are ok with the living symbol of the Roman Catholic church humbling himself-not before his fellow believers but before a member of a death-cult that wants to erase Christianity from the planet- I am not.
Ask yourself how this will look in the Muslim world. Head of Christianity kneels before not just a Muslim, but a FEMALE Muslim and washes her feet! Feet touching you is one of the most disrespectful things to a Muslim.
I don’t like the image- and I think it will be played up to the detriment of Christianity. You don’t agree? Fine. Time will tell, but this Roman Catholic is appalled by the fact that so many fellow Christians are MORE upset by the Pope washing the feet of any woman than those of a member of an ENEMY RELIGION.
