Christ in Paradise

As lent draws to an end, we are awaiting the resurrection of the Savior from paradise.

Jesus Christ celebrated the outsiders. He dined with the tax collectors who were forced to be the scourge of the community and saved the prostitute. Characteristically, Jesus chose to depict a sacrilegeous foreigner rather than priests as the good neighbor. And when Christ arrived in paradise, he was in the company of a murderer.

I always wonder when we are sitting in Sunday School deciding who will or will not go to the Celestial Kingdom if anyone remembers Jesus and His bad associates.
