Discriminate:recognize a distinction, differentiate.
There has been a lot of negativity thrown around in the last week. I am a very religious person. I do follow the Old testament laws. I understand that there are no New Testament laws. The laws spoken in the New Testament are an explanation of the Old Testament laws. If you don’t read or give reference from the scriptures I speak of, I ask that you keep and open mind. Although we speak with different words, we have the same heart.
To the clan known as Christians, I have read your Bible. No where in it does it give you the right to judge another human. My reference for this is Mathew 7:1. This means that if I walk into a church wearing overalls and a white t-shirt, I am not to be judged by the clothes that I wear. There is no dress code for going to church. This is a man made law. I have been frowned upon for doing such thing. Speaking of frowned upon, a lot of my friends have been hated on. It turns out that some Christians believe that they are above the laws of the scriptures and have chastised people for being homosexuals. Let me be very clear with this subject. The lifestyle that I condone is one that I apply to my life and my life only. I do not condone homosexuality. It would be against my creed to apply it to my life. I apply this creed to my life and my life only. My creed does support love. 1John chapter 4 states it well. We are to love. If we don’t love then we don’t know the Heavenly Father. When we are in love, the Heavenly Father is in us, and this is the completion of love. We cannot reprimand with out a verdict. Verdicts come from judgments. We have no right to judge anyone.
To species known as homo-sapiens, our physical differences are clinal. These features have taken years to develop. Some even took generations. Humans do not have different colors, we have different shades of the same color. Our facial feature have developed according to where our ancestors lived on this planet. We have fooled ourselves into believing that we are all different. It is as though we have placed a hierarchy on our clinal differences. This is a full display of ignorance. It is embarrassing.
What more do we want? We as humans have lived on this planet for more that 5,000 years, and we still have trouble loving each other. Hate comes easy, love comes with discipline. There is a huge lack of discipline in this world. We do not control our tongues. We do not hold ourselves to standards. We simply give ourselves the right to judge and state that we are higher on our self proclaimed hierarchy than others. A small piece of humble pie would go a long way here. Learn to put others first. When we look at the sanitation worker, we need to stop saying “At least I don’t have that job.” They may be saying the same thing as we drive off to our offices.
“No one is better than I am, and I am better than no one.”
This should be recited everyday until we believe it. This should be recited until we live it.
Love… It’s the only verb that we should be focused on.
Thanks for taking the time to read, and may we never judge anyone other than ourselves; may we show others love and may we be loved as well. Slainte!
