In light of Jesus’s teachings and through a New Covenant Lens can someone tell me honestly why anyone would ever want to curse anyone? I mean seriously.
This has always bothered me.
“But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you!” ~ Matthew 5:44 (Jesus)
“Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.” ~ Luke 6:28 (Jesus)
“Bless those who persecute you. Don’t curse them; pray that God will bless them.” ~ Romans 12:14 (The Apostle Paul)
“With the tongue we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in God’s likeness. Out of the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brothers, this should not be!…” ~ James 3:9-10 (James)
I love my Catholic brothers and sisters and pray they and any other Christ confessing denominations guilty of such have gotten past these kinds of practices!
Please note that I am in no way attempting to bash or persuade Catholics with this article that I have posted below… I am only posting for the love of God to implore us all (regardless of our “Religious Affiliations”) to all mature into The True Body of Christ well past these kinds of insane practices.
I read Fox’s Book of Holy Marty’s when I was 16 years old and have never been the same…. Help us all Lord Jesus who confess to represent you and Your Father’s Kingdom here on Earth!
Let me close with this. If The Truth would sharpen us as often as it has offended.
We would all really be on our way somewhere!
Trust me, I can dig up some really crazy stuff that Protestants have been guilty of as well throughout history and in a future blog I may…
but my heart here is not to divide us anymore than we already are as Christians but rather to bring Greater Unity to The Body of Christ
