Mr. McGovern Again, I respectfully disagree and feel you are taking the words spoken by Jesus - in a parable form - as literal. And you are cherry picking verses to suit your argument. A careful reading of the entire chapter finds Jesus saying: "“I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves. 17 Be on your guard; you will be handed over to the local councils and be flogged in the synagogues. 18 On my account you will be brought before governors and kings as witnesses to them and to the Gentiles."
