What would Jesus do type scenario

By 19 Mar ’10 No Comments

I just wrote a long comment on a dude’s website. This guy is very keen on exposing people who are not being good Christians and i find it so sad that his attitude is not more Christ like.

He wrote an article ripping Todd Bentley to shreds and i jumped on to it asking why he thought it was ok to tear someone apart so viciously and call himself a christian at the same time. It didn’t seem to add up in my mind.

You can read my most recent comment below:

Matthew 5:43-60 – 43″You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor[a] and hate your enemy.’ 44But I tell you: Love your enemies[b] and pray for those who persecute you, 45that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47And if you greet only your brothers, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

This is what JESUS said directly! Which basically means that JESUS told us to love our enemy! If you’d rather do something else, is that an admition to wanting to go against what he has taught himself?

as I said before – i think it’s great that you want to stop heretics and want to pull people up on bad theology and bad biblical teaching. That is a really admirable thing to do and I ask God to Guide you and bless you in that mission.

However – to say you’d “rather continue to pray that God keep exposing demons like Bentley so that His children will know His truth” is basically, in part, saying that you think Jesus was wrong.

Is that what you are saying?

Was Jesus wrong?

Or…

maybe…

just maybe…

the amazing, wonderful, epic nature of Jesus Christ, My king and saviour – YOUR KING and SAVIOUOR…

maybe he had a point.

Now I know you will say that the bible also tells us that we must show sinners for what they are, expose them and what not and as i said i agree!

BUT

and here it comes…

you cant pick and choose! You have to do both!

As a Christian, you are called to love those whom you hate otherwise you yourself are living in sin. The gospel teaches us that even if we hate a man in our hearts it is as good as murder in our record with God.

so again i challenge you dude! Keep up the great work at seeking to “speak the truth” as it’s a really amazing thing to do but remember who you are doing it for….

is it for God, or yourself?

I’ll be praying for you bro! God bless you and all your readers (and that includes those of you who are reading this and tutting – the same message applies to you too)

Peace Out – Spread his LOVE!
