Jesus was telling a particular group of people something for that particular point in time .
lets not get nasty in here . everyone , by their mere presence here , is most likely a seeker of truth , having been lied to our whole lives (by our beloved government).lets at least be civil in our discussions (not like some mean-spirited liberals ).
