This is part two of six blog posts reflecting on a book called UnChristian. The specific topic of this series is judgmentalism and this post in particular, Christians flaws that we do not realize sometimes.
Stereotypes kill relationships! We sometimes harbor assumptions, prejudices, stereotypes, biases, about certain groups of people based on superficial stupid differences that should not make a difference at all! (Such as appearance, tattoos, excessive fat, dirty hair, ragged clothing, a lot of rings all over the body, bad breathe, etc)
These are the people we should be loving and reaching out too! these stereotypes come from misperceptions, misconceptions, misunderstandings, and they are errors on our part.
Can you not see it – it is so obvious to me, by judging these people wwe are just as sinful as those we are condeming.
Have you ever heard hate the sin, and love the sinner….
this is how it should be
but people think that Christians hate the sin and the sinner
We need to change this!
Let us not be so anxious to judge, but rather to LOVE. Even Christians make mistakes, get over it!
What we need to be doing is hanging out with the least desirable people in our culture and loving them as Christ did! Not judging them.
Our error: Pride, arrogance!
We are in conceit. We are in abundance. We are way to convinced that we are right about everything.
Becuase of this error, we are not open to other people’s perspectives in life. We are too aggressive and on the edge ready to persuade everyone else that they are wrong and we are right that we forget LOVE. We judge and we do not get to understand where others are coming from!
We so easily forget that God is to judge NOT humans!
We are to love. Wwe are to care for the needy and hurting.
