Could you live like Jesus for a year?
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — The Rev. Ed Dobson has spent most of his life following Jesus. But only now does he realize how hard it is to live like him.

The retired megachurch pastor and one-time architect of the religious right has spent the last year trying to eat, pray, talk and even vote as Jesus would. His revelation: Being Jesus is tough.

"I've concluded that I am a follower, but I'm not a very good one," Dobson said. "If you get serious about the Bible, it will really mess you up."

Great point, Jim.

If anybody "lives like Jesus" it's the UNSAVED, many of whom think they're already good enough to get to heaven as they are--as ONLY Jesus is, and those resting in His perfect work rather than their own faulty sense of righteousness.

Ah, gentlemen, I see I should have commented one other thing as well in this article, "vote like Jesus."

Mark 12
15Shall we give, or shall we not give? But he, knowing their hypocrisy, said unto them, Why make ye trial of me? bring me a denarius, that I may see it. 16And they brought it. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? And they said unto him, Caesar’s. 17And Jesus said unto them, Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and unto God the things that are God’s. And they marvelled greatly at him.

Matthew Henry wrote:
Mark 12:17:
13-17 The enemies of Christ would be thought desirous to know their duty, when really they hoped that which soever side he took of the question, they might find occasion to accuse him. Nothing is more likely to insnare the followers of Christ, than bringing them to meddle with disputes about worldly politics. Jesus avoided the snare, by referring to the submission they had already made as a nation; and all that heard him, marvelled at the great wisdom of his answer. Many will praise the words of a sermon, who will not be commanded by the doctrines of it.

I'd rather live WITH Jesus for eternity.

Saying that you can live like Jesus (for a year, yet) is certainly tantamount to saying you don't know Him.
That is analogous to saying that you can prove God

If He says you can't... 'nuff said.
