This is a post I put together today, first on my own Facebook page and then our Joppa Road Facebook page; hope you agree and believe.
…I promise you, usually, it wouldn’t seem like people were/are judging you, if you didn’t do things worthy of judgment…There are people in your life who say something because they care, they don’t want to see you destroying yourself doing what you want to do… but hey, you say they’re judging, criticizing, hating, everybody’s got an opinion on your life and you’re quick to try to shut them up, saying stuff like,
“Which one of my bills will you be paying this month?”
Please! We love you; we’re trying to help you avoid a SPIRITUAL BILL that you CANNOT PAY… if you’d put as much effort into believing and obeying Christ as you did railing on others, then you wouldn’t have to run cover-ups and avoidance with people!
“…only God can judge me…” hey, do you hear what you just said? I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t want God to judge me! The Bible says, “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.” Heb. 10.31, Matt. 10.28, Luke 12.5
Most Christians act like they don’t know or don’t want to hear it but that stuff is wicthcraft, rebellion is like witchcraft [(I Sam. 15.23) meaning, you have another god]; and this is what the ministers and believers of Christ are supposed to do:
“And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.” Jude 1.23
“Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.” Isa. 55:7
“Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD: and not that he should return from his ways, and live?” Ezek. 18:23
“Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby ye have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will ye die, O house of Israel? For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord GOD: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye.” Ezek. 18:31-32
