Here Come The Judge

And aren’t we all? Why bother with judging others and general gossip? I wonder if most all of us are hardwired to engage in this negative behavior. 131 more words

Prayer Request: Familial Love For A Homosexual Teen

They say 3 is a significant number in Christianity, and I believe it. There are three members of the Godhead. Samuel heard the voice of the Lord 3 times before Eli knew it was God. 2,039 more words

You don't know what its like to be us

I was recently talking to a fellow writer and friend of mine about his travels. I was telling him I was envious of his travels and how I’d love to be able to live my life that way but that its more dangerous for a woman to travel alone than for a man. 896 more words

Judgement

Yesterday I was in church and I’m sorry to say the service was lost on me.  I have nothing against people being baptised in church, of course, but that the Easter service (Easter by the way has suddenly become a word I dislike – it being a corruption of the old pagan festival of fertility, Ishtar, and so I prefer the label Passiontide) denegrated into a piece of entertainment for the large number of family and friends that had gathered. 261 more words

Judge not?

“To judge” actually means to condemn, to administer justice. It is closely entwined with contempt. The biblical instructions to “judge not” are not a simple commandment, they are a rather elaborate spiritual concept. 884 more words

adamjasonp reblogged this on The Dependent Independent and commented:

There exists a confusion over the word ‘judge.’  We all judge in the sense of figuring out what’s best for us, personally.  We have to, and so we are compelled to.  And IB even adds the component of love, that love will compelled us to form opinions. Caving to fear, however… Indifference is no virtue. ‘Judge not’ is not an excuse to remain silent in the face of evil. Christ said, “Judge not, that ye be not judged.”  That does not mean, do nothing.  Basically, it means there are consequences, and it may come back to you.  But, regardless of your past misdeeds, it is selfless to act on the behalf of those in need, and selfish to stand indifferent. When your heart tells you to act, you act.  You can only harm yourself and others if you allow fear to dictate your actions.
