Samaritans

Dale Cresap's picture

Are you familiar with the story of the good Samaritan? Do you assume that Samaritans were inherently good? This is a commonly accepted idea today, but to see it this way is to miss the point of the story entirely, and the phrase ‘good Samaritan’ does not appear in the text. Samaritans were outcasts because of their false beliefs. I chose the characters deliberately for a purpose. What would be an equivalent for today? Those on their way to Bible study passing by and the drug addict who stopped to help? You conclude that the Samaritan was good because of his actions. I want you to understand that this is a general principle.
