Preaching the gospel with a fist?
Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. -Matthew 5:5
After watching the "way of the master" video I posted, I was grieved by the way the transvestite was treated at the end.
Do christians now feel comfortable filming lost people in such a way?
What if that was your son...would the way they handled that young man make you grateful they were the christians Jesus sent to reach your little boy who had fallen into such darkness?
Don't turn the other cheek now...just film it, post it and most importantly use it...
Use people...for our gain, to make our point, to justify our actions, to show others what we do or have had done to us.
I hope to God that if my little girl or my son finds themselves at some broken and sinful place in their lives that they will run into Mother Teresa not these guys or anyone else that has decided that the world needs a talking too.
Thoughtfulness is the beginning of a great sanctity.
If you learn this art of being thoughtful, you will become more and more Christ-like for His heart was meek and He always thought of others. Our vocation, to be beautiful, must be full of thought for others. Jesus went about doing good. -Mother Teresa
Come to me all you that are weary and carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn of me, for I am meek and lowly of heart, and you will find your lives restful. For my yoke is easy and my burden sweet (Mt 11:28-30).
Go and do likewise...-Jesus
