I listened to a Lutheran pastor discuss Mark 12: 28-44. This pastor is filling in while a church I attend finds a permanent pastor. Scribes come to Jesus and ask him what are God’s most important commandments. They do not just refer to the Ten Commandments, but any commandments or directives that God has given. Jesus says that the first is: “The Lord our God, the Lord is one; and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your strength.” The second is: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
Pastor Brian Clasen goes on to say that these two rules make up the essence of what God requires us to believe. I do know that “Judge not lest thee be judged” (Matthew) falls under, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” I will keep coming back to Judge not lest thee be judged, and how important it is to God. Also, we have to keep this in mind as events unfold. We (humankind) keep falling into the “Judging others” trap, and this has led to wars and strife and deaths.
Some people have been raised from the time they are little to “Judge others”. Gangstalking is taking judging others and going even one step further. The gangstalkers not only are judging others, but are dealing out a punishment. Oh yes, gangstalking is a punishment.
WE – every one of us needs to quit judging others based on their religious beliefs. We don’t have the right to judge others. God says so. He judges who goes to Heaven. I know the Bible talks about getting to Heaven through Jesus Christ. Verses are quoted all the the time. I just know that God is telling “us” (through me) that He wants us: to believe in one God – the one God in Heaven, and to follow a path that helps us lead a righteous life. Not righteous in that one person is better than another (leads to judging), but an upstanding life. The message to get out to others is: believe in one God and lead an upstanding life.
Yes, following Christ’s example is one way to lead a righteous life. Being a Christian is one way to get to Heaven. This would be a non judging Christian. People other than Christians get to Heaven. The only way WE (humans fighting Satan) can possibly win the war against Satan is to quit judging others. Some in power will use the US (Christians) versus THEM (everyone else including those liberal Christians) to divide us. Yes, they already are.
