perspective of Christians.
Not that it's always right. Or just. Or fair.
But something I see is that the lies about who Christ is are sometimes provoked by His followers.
And the victim mentality of many to think that Christianity is being attacked and suffering is all over the place right now. There has always been rebellion against God's righteousness...since the beginning of time. And it has been within His own people and outside His covenanted family. Christ's church should TURN THE OTHER CHEEK and continue to grow in strength and Love, instead of crying out and puffing up to say that we are being suppressed.
Seriously, what can man do to us?
Maybe I need a break from Social Media because...
I see Christ's name
run a-muck by those
who Love Him.
They are fighting
the world's battles
for Him but not like Him.
I am confused.
So, today, I think about all the parables Christ spoke, and the commandments he offers in the New Covenant...and the fact that from the very beginning of Scripture, the underlying foundation of God's commandments is:
Martin Luther King Jr. said it second best (Christ said it first):
"I have decided to stick with Love.
Hate is too great a burden to bear."
Sure, there are things such as righteous justice, guarding our hearts from temptation, not stumbling into sin because of those we associate with, but in the end, nobody can deny that when Christ walked the Earth, He was an example of Love.
In a world driven by media...both hate-filled secular media, and hate-filled religious media, we must choose the Rock of Christ in all our dealings.
Let's not choose throwing stones over giving a hand to the world to step up on the Rock.
