WWJD? is the wrong question. It should be: WWJWMTD? What would Jesus want me todo?

No Lon, it’s the “would” that is problematic. “Would” speaks of absence - of bereavement, even. It relies upon the unspoken codicil “… if he could see this… if he were still here”. As such, it’s nothing less than a direct rebuttal of Matthew 28:20b.

Better by far, and truer to our faith and calling, to ask “Where *is* Jesus in this situation… What *is* Jesus doing… and what *does* Jesus want me to do?”

So many questions tortoise!

Freaking out and flipping tables can be very healthy psychologically. Perhaps not so good if/when the police are called.
