Deep Thoughts from "The Pharisee"
Some people can write on demand. "The Pharisee" cannot. He is subject to the laws of inspiration, much like 'this' characteristic of the wind. 'You can hear the wind, but you don't know where it comes from or where it is going. The wind blows wherever it wishes; you hear the sound it makes, but you do not know where it comes from or where it is going.' ... and such are the words of The Pharisee.

Romans chapter 2 seems to open up saying don't judge, yet as we proceed the writer then seems to judge those who are judging. Catch 22? The Truth is that we all judge, and to some degree, have to judge. As a Christian, and seeker of religious and spiritual truth, I often hear in my searching, talk of "Gods Law". Well, to me it seems that 99% of this "Gods Law" is actually 'gods law', created by man, and lifted to the level of "Gods Law" for a very good reason, or sometimes very bad reasons. I have a problem with those who use Scriptures to say "you shouldn't judge" as well as those who judge using the same. The Truth as I see it is, that we will all be required in our lives to make many judgements, both for and against others. Most of these should be against those whom we actually know and have an impact on, but in our current society, and I might even say globally, we have forsaken the judgements of our own 'House', or senate if you would, to pass judgement only upon anything that will raise our own cause, belief or 'righteousness'. If you want to be a part of the problem, then by all means judge judge judge upon others based on the information you digest from an all to often One Sided Source. If you want to be a part of the solution, judge the person working at the desk next to you, or the person sitting in the pew at 'your' church, or the family member who needs correction. I am guilty even of what I speak, yet still think it to be true. To be 'judge' with the True Spirit of the Living God is a glorious thing, and Angels rejoice! It will be the type judgement Jesus gave against Prostitutes and Thieves. OR the type judgement Jesus gave against Religious & Political Leaders, who by the way had the earthly power to kill Him. To 'judge' based on the laws of man/self can become very hideous indeed. Demons rejoice at such. And so I preach to the choir my opinion.

Christianity was never intended, by the Founder, to be something that was forced upon people. Rather, it was something to be lived, loved, and shared; and if someone wanted to come in, they were most certainly allowed. (though it took a while for the Jews to accept that God so loved the Gentiles). Upon entrance to the fold, there are certainly rules that apply. Problem is Man. Man has made rules, and wants to apply many of these man made rules, to the fold (not that all rules are bad & that subject could cover it's own dissertation). And so, some of these 'man made church' rules we want to apply to those, who for one reason or the other, refuse to accept the Faith given by Christ. We 'The Church', have gotten quite off track at times. We have turned 1 or 2 rules given by the Living God, that can basically cover everything, into 100's or 1000's of rules. All you have to do is look at History to see the impact of man made rules. Yet, we somehow let this 'judgement upon others' creep back in, even after these lessons have been learned. Faith in Christ is Love. Faith in Christ is self control. Faith in Christ is freedom from the law. Faith in Christ is the cross. Faith in Christ 'is not' making others believe as we do, but rather allowing them to. And so our job is to 'Live It'. It's OK to tell it, but on a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being best, LIVE it is a 10, and tell it is a 1. The rest will take care of itself. And so you hear my opinion. Selah
