Tell me something.
How is it that we can admire and love someone, respect their wisdom, their insights and their Faith one moment and then hate, despise and disrespect everything about them the next moment simply because they were rumored to be smoking or drinking or partying?
Does the truthfulness of their advice, wisdom, knowledge and insights suddenly become a lie because they fellowship with drunkards, drug dealers and harlots?
Does the strength of their wisdom suddenly become retarded and weak because they have a glass of wine or smoke a doobie?
Does their Faith and obedience to God and all of His moral 10 Commandments; their selfless love and sacrifice and their love and generosity for orphans and widows become filthy and nullified because they don’t do things like Christians think or envision that they should?
Help me to understand something.
How come profanity spewing, fornicating, marijuana smoking, partying adulterous comedians and some Catholic priests gets to call God’s name and the “F” word in the same breath while professing Christianity without any outrage or protest from anyone or suffer any appreciable repercussion or lost of income, while GOD’S Man is ostracized and damned and made to suffer loss of a career and income for having a glass of wine. Why are the Prophets of YHVH condemned for exposing hypocrisy and homosexuality and other immoralities in the pulpit and in churches while other professed Christians are celebrated in their sins and transgressions?
How come some Pastors who have married multiple times and who have committed adulterous acts and who continue to engage in homosexual relationships and who uses cocaine (crack) and who continues to drink alcohol to excess and who has sex with their female and male congregation members continue to maintain their pastorate without any appreciable repercussions, criticisms or loss of income while the truly chosen, sent, honest and humble servant of God is made to suffer great loss and destitution because of some unsubstantiated rumor or some past unfounded indiscretion?
Please help me to understand this.
What makes a user of narcotic prescription pain medications any better that a person who uses cannabis to cope with their pains?
Why are some folks judged more harshly than others for the same alleged offence?
Why are some of us drug tested for illegal drugs and stigmatized and punished for a positive test result, while others are allowed to work in public schools, government and public service positions as functional alcoholics, racists, terrorists and closet pedophiles?
Maybe you have the answers for all of these obvious double standards, prejudices, biases and hypocritical opinions and perverted and corrupt views on morality and justice.
Maybe you can help me to understand these things.
Please feel free to answer in your own way. There aren’t any limitations on how you may reply.
But please keep it REAL. And Keep it clean.
Later Jesus was having dinner at Levi’s house. Many tax collectors and sinners who were followers of Jesus were eating with him and his disciples. When the experts in Moses’ Teachings who were Pharisees saw him eating with sinners and tax collectors, they asked his disciples, “Why does he eat with tax collectors and sinners?” When Jesus heard that, he said to them, “Healthy people don’t need a doctor; those who are sick do. I’ve come to call sinners, not people who think they have God’s approval.”
The Son of Man came eating and drinking and they said, ‘Behold the man is a glutton and a wine drinker, a friend of Tax Collectors and of sinners.’ And wisdom is justified by its works.”
What seemed to bother the stuffy, “religious” types wasn’t that Jesus went to parties, but that He seemed to enjoy Himself too much among those that they judged as sinners.
We might do well to remember that the Pharisees and other Jewish Religious authorities of the First Century thought that they knew who Yehowshua was simply by observing his social habits and the company that he kept. And because of their own personal human prejudices,judgments, views and traditional biases and values, they dismissed Christ’s message as being false and him as being a faker and blasphemer.
They missed the mark and many rejected salvation.
