One Man's Poison
I'm certain that most reading this blog would agree with me.
But here's the thing-we are judging HIM based on our morality-just as he is judging US by HIS.
He possibly believes that he is RIGHTEOUS, doing God's work, winning the world for Islam.
So...who is right?
If, as many do, you reject the idea that there is a moral God setting standards of right and wrong...then you have no right to judge anyone else regarding their morality.
Let's set aside this murderer for a moment or an eternity, and allow me to point up a different example.
If you believe that the abortion of humans is a morally correct (Not questioning its legality, so don't go there) and honorable enterprise, then quite possibly you believe that I am wrong to oppose abortion. You might be judging my morality by your own standards, and find me and my morality wanting or lacking.
Here's the thing-there is one God, Who has proclaimed what is morally right and what is morally wrong.
You and I and the murderer pictured above all live in His Creation.
Whatever our opinions or morals or life choices or sins...God is the only one whose opinion matters.
I could judge you until the cows come home and you wouldn't get your hair mussed-my judging has as little effect on you as your judging has on me.
"4“I say to you, My friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that have no more that they can do.
5“But I will warn you whom to fear: fear the One who, after He has killed, has authority to cast into hell; yes, I tell you, fear Him!"
