Who are we to judge? Why is it that people think we are the ones to determine another's path of life? As generations have passed, classification and criticism has continued to grow. This is not how God wished his children to be. We are supposed to stick together and bring others to love our strong and mighty God. With this being said, tragedy struck in Orlando just last week. There were two major tragedies that occurred, and both were devastating. However, the tragedy that proves how scary society is becoming is the shooting at Pulse nightclub.
I will begin this article by saying that I do not know every detail about the shooting, but what I do know I will express in a mild way. Society is ruining itself by casting judgement upon people who, most of the time, have not performed one act of unkindness to the predator. God is the one to make judgment calls when our days come to an end, not the people of Earth. Regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation, etc., it is not to be taken into our judgement.
People are people, and at the end of the day they are still people if they are interested in the same sex or if they are African American, Hispanic or Catholic. The list can go on forever, because it does not matter what class people are in. They are still humans that deserve the same respect that we expect. I may come off as abrupt and some people will begin to read this article and scoff because they think I am ridiculous, but I fear not because my God is holy and I live to serve him and bring others to his house for he has cleansed me and loved me when I have sinned. A sin is a sin: adultery, lying, blasphemy, etc. They are all sins and no sin weighs more than another. I am by no means perfect but I shall not ridicule others for what they have done because I know I have sinned and I have had the blessing to still get up every day and continue to live for God.
This article could be endless because I know I am not the only one irritated by the fact that others believe whites should have special treatment or that African Americans aren't punished enough. Enough is enough, people. We all do things we shouldn't. It doesn't matter what color skin we have or who we date or marry. God loves each of us the same, and we are brothers and sisters in the kingdom. We may disagree or not appreciate others' choices, but to each their own and we are to respect each person just as we want to be respected. God loves me just as he loves a man-loving man, and I will always respect my brothers and sisters in God's beautiful kingdom. Society is becoming scary to raise a child in due to all of this craziness, because we need the Lord. Each and every one of us needs the grace of God to lead and protect us every second of every day.
With closing of this article, I encourage everyone who reads this to start each day with a mind to not judge or classify people. When you catch yourself thinking about how a person may annoy you or how you disagree with their choices, remember that they are just as loved as you are and God weighs your mistakes just as he does your neighbor's. I love everyone for who they are and I strive harder each day to act kindly towards others and to remind myself I am no sinner to judge.
