When you were a sinner and didn’t seek a relationship with God did you ever think that God’s wrath was upon you? No, okay. So when you decide to become a Christian and someone does you wrong, why do you say to them God will judge you? If you have a relationship with God and truly know His power then why would you wish His judgement upon somebody?
This is a problem that I have with Christians. Many Christians ask for forgiveness for their sins and expect blessings for their good deeds like tithing and other things, but when someone does them wrong they threaten them with God’s wrath. Half of the problems in this world probably have nothing to do with the devil, but are caused by Christians using God’s name to curse one another.
I remember speaking with a woman about having doubts on getting married because of my financial situation and I wasn’t sure if I was ready to share my finances with someone else. The woman told me that you shouldn’t be afraid to share your money or God may put you in a situation where you have to spend your money. She used God’s name to try to scare me into doing something that she believed what was right. Instead of listening to my fears and using God’s name to help me find understanding, she used Him to curse me. If I did end up in a situation where I was forced to spend a large amount of my money then I would blame that woman for speaking it into existence.
Do Christians not know that when they use a spiritual being to curse someone then that is witchcraft? I often hear the term “I’ll let God deal with you,” which is another way of saying that you have no power to enact the judgement that you wish so you sit back and wait for something bad to happen to the person you’re mad at and assume that it was God’s judgement. If it was God, then that makes you a witch. If it wasn’t God, then you still believe that you have the power to call on God’s wrath and now you think that no one can ever hurt you again because if they do then God’s wrath is waiting for them.
I also hear many Christians say to others “You should be careful of how you treat God’s children.” So you’re saying God only avenges His believers? Does a Christian who gets raped deserve more justice than a nonbeliever? Nonbelievers Lives Matter. It doesn’t matter if you consider yourself God’s child. You should be mindful on how you treat anyone. Its like you should be mindful of how you treat Christians because they can use divine judgement on you just as you should be mindful of how you treat cops because they can throw you in jail.
Look at Dylan Roof. He walked into Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church and killed 9 Christians during their Bible study. Thats one of the most evil attacks against Christians in the history of the United States. If anyone should receive the max of God’s wrath it should be him. Some of the family members of the victims have already stated that they forgive him. Why? Do they forgive him because they are in the public eye and want the world to know how great God’s love is by having the grace to forgive a psychopathic murderer? I don’t see how Christians can say they forgive a murderer but will curse their cheating spouse. Probably because forgiving a murderer takes greater divine power than forgiving a liar.
Although, having that divine power is spiritual. Forgiving those who done you wrong whether taking a loved or from you, or a loved one breaking your heart. Forgiving the most heinous acts against you doesn’t mean that you got over it, but it means that the pain is too great for that you have to put the burden on God so your life won’t come to ruin by pain. But dealing with pain is a whole other conversation thats too long to write for just a blog post.
