Many Christians get angry when they suffer from disaster. They’ll ask,
“If I believe in Jesus, why is He letting me get beat up on?”
Well, everybody gets smacked around in life, so deal with what you are given with the understanding that the unjust receive similar treatment even if you don’t see it. Use that knowledge to have compassion in all matters for all persons who suffer from strife.
Many Christians get angry when they see the unjust profit from their actions. They’ll ask,
”If I believe in Jesus, why is He letting others getting away with all the good stuff?”
Well, everybody gets what they want or need, not all the time and some more than others, so deal with the good you are given with the understanding that the unjust might share their goods and wealth with others even if it is for selfish motives.
Many Christians are happy because they know they’ll be with Jesus after they die. They’ll say,
”Those people who were unjust will suffer for their sins forever. Ha!”
That’s right. They will suffer. The Purging Lutheran certainly doesn’t know what the afterlife will be like but if we become ‘all-aware’ of our surroundings, we’ll know who is and who isn’t in God’s company. But here’s the question,
”Will you hear the voices of the damned cursing you from Hell for not having told them about Jesus?”
Love For Enemies
43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor[i] and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47 And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
