Asking the question, “What would Jesus do” is a necessary evil.

WWJD is "evil" because the question is not so easily answered.

Quick Quote – Source – Jeff Hilles

A Biblical Christian worldview perspective – We live in a gray world, not the black-white version (Heaven and Hell) that follows death. The worn question “What would Jesus do” is a necessary part of the Christian lexicon due to the reality that not all decisions are clear from Scripture when filtered through a sin-cursed world. Take abortion for example. As Christians, we can say that “humanity” begins all the way back to in vitro fertilization of multiple eggs. We can ignore the life of the mother and choose the baby over her life. Some see rape and incest as triggers, while others say 6 weeks plus are expendable as they are “non-viable”. And, that is just one example among thousands that we have to discern where Jesus draws the line (steeling for the starving, white lies that make people feel better, etc.).

The fact is that we live in a sin-cursed world where even Christians can’t agree among themselves on some behaviors. How about the recent Alister Begg controversy (details here) to name another. If only the old wristband (WWJD) could go green if “yes” and red if “no”.
