It’s quite sad how much peoples minds are controlled by what comes out of the media. We as Christians are told, “Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.” Philippians 4:8. Our emotions are to be controlled by the Holy Spirit. We need to be always wanting the best for a person, even if that person has offended you.
Let me ask you a question, if someone willingly killed your child or a family member, could you forgive them? It would probably be the hardest thing you ever had to do. And yet it was our sin that killed God’s Son on the cross. We were the ones who nailed Him there and the Father let it happen. We are deserving of the fires hell and yet Jesus cried out; “Father forgive them for they do not know what they are doing.” So if because of the sacrifice of His Son we are forgiven how much more should we forgive others?
I see racial division over this George Zimmerman trial even in the church. Shame on us! Jesus paid the price for all races equally and He called us His body. I can’t work properly !f I am missing part of that body. We need each other no matter what colour we are. There are greater things that the church needs to be concerned about and that is the salvation of souls. Millions are on their way to hell right now, consumed by hatred that is inflamed by the media and shamefully even pastors and so called reverends. Let’s get our act together church! It does not matter who was guilty or who wasn’t. We should be praying for the salvation of all those involved including George Zimmerman and if you can’t do that you are part of the problem.
