A while back I posted about how We Need to be Better Than the Westboro Baptist Church, just click on it to read the post.
Well someone commented on the post…
I didn’t approve of the post to be published simply because I’m not going to have a “I hate Catholic” blog being linked to my page. I’m not for condemning someone just because their faith is different from mine, so I won’t take it from others either.
Instead of going on about his bad grammar, I will just talk about the fact that this individual obviously condemns me for being Catholic.
I have been real disappointed with those within the Christian faith this past year. Between The Pharisee that was on campus to the multiple comments I have received in online forums as a result of my Catholic faith, I’m tired of it.
I don’t know why, but for some reason there seems to be a lot of hate from other Christians against Catholics. Which I find ironic since the whole Christian faith kind of evolved from Catholicism aka the Reformation. What I find more puzzling is when Christians hate those that are Jewish.
While the people in the Church’s history haven’t been perfect, neither have people from other religions and denominations.
I find it so aggravating when I see fellow Christians and or Catholics condemn one another. At the end of the day, these people seem to forget something.
They aren’t God.
You aren’t God. We aren’t God. I’m not God.
Since only God can judge us and none of us here are God, I don’t think you are one to judge or condemn me.
No human being has a right to condemn one another.
Stop judging, that you may not be judged. For as you judge, so you will be judged, and the measure will be measured out to you.
James 4: 11-12
Do not speak evil of one another, brothers. Whoever speaks evil of a brother or judge his brother speaks evil of the law and judges the law. If you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge. There is one lawgiver and judge who is able to save or destroy. Who then are you to judge your neighbor?
I find it so aggravating that people will just start attacking another beliefs. Do you really think by saying that their teachings are false or demonic will get them to join your side at all? Granted at least you are being honest with your feelings and not trying to deceive them into changing their faith, but I still find it sickening either way.
Unfortunately people that think like this commenter believe they are coming from a place of love when they say these things or they believe they are on a mission from God to spread their message.
While I understand the importance of preaching and spreading the word, I think ones actions should come from love, ones words should be from love, and one should not condemn another (which is not an act of love).
So, before you condemn another person and their faith, look in the mirror and take a good luck at yourself.
Spread the word. Share this blog with your family, friends, etc.
