It is incredible the racist element that has shown up in many peoples lives since yesterdays not guilty verdict. What is even more incredible is that many of these people call themselves Christians. How dare you place yourself in a higher place than God. One day the Pharisees, hoping to trip up Jesus brought Him a woman caught in the very act of adultery.
Jesus returned to the Mount of Olives, 2… but early the next morning he was back again at the Temple. A crowd soon gathered, and he sat down and taught them. 3 As he was speaking, the teachers of religious law and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in the act of adultery. They put her in front of the crowd.
4 “Teacher,” they said to Jesus, “this woman was caught in the act of adultery. 5 The law of Moses says to stone her. What do you say?”
6 They were trying to trap him into saying something they could use against him, but Jesus stooped down and wrote in the dust with his finger. 7 They kept demanding an answer, so he stood up again and said, “All right, but let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone!” 8 Then he stooped down again and wrote in the dust.
9 When the accusers heard this, they slipped away one by one, beginning with the oldest, until only Jesus was left in the middle of the crowd with the woman. 10 Then Jesus stood up again and said to the woman, “Where are your accusers? Didn’t even one of them condemn you?”
11 “No, Lord,” she said.
And Jesus said, “Neither do I. Go and sin no more.”
Are you greater than God in passing judgement when the Lord says; “Vengeance is mine, I will repay.” ?
How many of you have had the thought, “Oh I’d just wish that person would die.” Do you not know that you are guilty in your heart of murder? So how is it that you can stand there with a stone in your hand ready to throw it at George Zimmerman? If you have anger, hatred and unforgiveness in your heart right now towards George, do you know you cannot enter heaven? “And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses. 26 But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your trespasses.” Grow up and let the Holy Spirit rule you instead of your emotions! – Gerry Desjardins
