J is for...
is for Judgment
I had a friend who couldn’t understand how another friend of mine could be bisexual.
“Doesn’t she realize she is committing the greatest sin?”
My first thought was, I was thought all sense were equal. Then I thought, Who is she to judge? She has had at least 3 abortions which mean she was also fornicating.
I hate to judge people and it really irks me when others look down on people because they live their life in a different way.
I filled that we as humans are all flawed and full of sin. We were made to be imperfect creatures therefore we may not make all the perfect choices in our lives.
The feeling that I am being judged by a large group of people leaves me feeling uneasy and anxious. I never felt the most judged than when I was in church. The way they made me feel was not welcoming and knowing how they feel about people who are not “straight” made me avoid it at all cost.
So, for a while, I stopped attending church. Church did not feel like the house of Jesus Christ like my minister preached to us. It felt like a house of judgment and I hated to see there and overhear the woman gossiping and discussing others in a negative fashion.
We didn’t feel that the churches we were attending lived up to the values of Jesus Christ. In the bible and in many reenactments and depictions of Jesus Christ shows him as a giver and lover of all whether they be rich, poor, young old, from any nation and of any race.
“Let thee without sin cast the first stone.”
Yet in my experience people are quick to judge first and ask questions later. They are stoning people on a daily basis while trying to build a fort around their glass houses.
I find that there are so many people willing to talk to me and tell me their life stories because they can sense or they know me well to know that I do not judge people. I let people live their lives in a way that makes them happy. Whether you believe there is a God or not, we were given the right to make our own choices in life.
No imperfect person should judge another. The world would be a much better place if we all believed and lived by that.
