Dear Christian


Dear Christian,

Jesus said treat others as you like to be treated (Matthew 7:12) so why do you treat them with abuse and unpleasantness?


Jesus said turn the other cheek (Luke 6:29) so why do you respond with insults?

Blog191(1)Jesus said don’t judge unless you want to be judged (Matthew 7:1) so why do you constantly judge and condemn?


Jesus said love your enemies (Luke 6:27) so why doesn’t it happen?


Jesus said don’t call anyone a fool (Matthew 5.22) so why do you call them far worse than that?


Jesus said don’t pray in public (Matthew 6.5) so why do you pray in public?


Jesus said sell all you have and give the money to the poor (Luke 18.22) so why don’t you?

Jesus said you cannot serve God and money (Luke 16.13) so why are some of you so obscenely rich?


Jesus said deny yourself (Matthew 16.24) so why do you indulge and promote yourself above all things?

Jesus said ‘be perfect’ (Matthew 5.48) so why don’t we see you trying?


Jesus asked why you call him ‘Lord, Lord’ and yet don’t do what he tells you (Luke 6.46). Evidently he didn’t understand, as you do, just how many of his commands are optional. Thank goodness you know better than he did.
