in response to reader comment: WHO CAN JUDGE?

Submitted by donvan (United States), Apr 20, 2007 at 15:58

You ask the question "Who can judge" The question is who can decide. As Christians , we believe it is not our place to make judgements of other people, if we do then we will be judged .However we are given by Grace, the obligation to make decisions. As a person of color in a white society, you have been given special graces. For all the insults, ugly words, and disrespect you have endured, Christ says to you "Forgive them" . We are weak and we are sinners. Jesus was as much a black man as white, yet He forgave us all, and commanded us to do the same. Decide to follow Jesus, and you will drink from wells you did not dig, and eat food you did not plant. No pain you will ever endure will be the pain he suffered, no indignity as great as His, no insult as great as was shown to Him, yet He forgave them once and for all. As for those that preach hate, pray for them. They are lost and are searching for what is already theirs for the asking, the perfect peace of Jesus Christ with the unity of the Holy Spirit, to the glory of God the Father. Peace be with you.
