“Be willing to accept those who still have doubts about what believers can do. And don’t argue with them about their different ideas.”
Romans 14:1 ERV
You ever meet a person who loves Jesus so much that even a simple how are you turns into “ I’m blessed and highly favored of the Lord, the true and loving God who raised Jesus from the dead is smiling down on me!” ? Yeah me too (lol)
You ever meet the person who if you mention Adam or Eve they want to remind you that there was Lilith and other people and how stupid you are for not researching and knowing the real truth? (Me too)
What about the people who want to debate that the sabbath is Saturday and everyone else is going to hell because they go to church on Sunday? Yea
What about the people who think God is real but Jesus was a prophet and not the Son? I’ve met them too
I’ve even met people who only believe in a higher power that has no name but is benevolent and groovy!
The one thing I know to be true is, there is no way we could all be right, but, we could all be wrong!
To that point I say this, love your neighbor as you would yourself. Treat people The way THEY want to be treated, not how you want to be treated, there is a difference. Love people past their pain and bad experiences. Remember we all are human and need some understanding. Forgive easily and always assume good intent. Never assume someone is mean just because they have nothing else to do.
There is no need to debate who’s belief is right or who’s is wrong because at the end of the day, it’s according to what you believe. If someone wants to know more about your choice, share your story with them and help them in any way you can, it can’t be forced nor should you try to scare them into believing what you believe. I don’t believe God wants anyone who doesn’t want him, not my God or yours.
Let’s be tolerant of what each other believes. Diversity brings so much to the table and allows us to be stronger together. I’m amazing by myself but I’m a force when we are together. I need you and you need me!
