Remember the famous Beatitude of Christ? The one about persecution? Well, Christians love that verse especially if they face persecutions from “non-believers”. I love it too, but probably on a different perspective. Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Unfortunately, some of them really felt that they were blessed making it easier for them to judge other people, condemn even. Its very unfair.
I have written about Inner Dance and how it became part of my daily routine. It’s a meditation modality that makes the body dance involuntarily while under a trance-like state.I have to admit that it is not Christian in nature, but I felt more closer to my God. I told this to my friend. My friend told this to her friend. And it goes on and on. Its funny that when the news reached to me it goes something like I am doing yoga, practicing New Age and stepped out from the “Christian Mainstream”. Ok. First and foremost, I don’t do yoga but I believe that Yoga is good for our health. Second, I don’t have any idea what NEW AGE is. Third, yes, I stepped out of the Christian Mainstream because I cannot stand judgmental people inside Christianity. I prefer to follow Jesus Christ without any religious attachments and commitments.
I also received negative feedback from an evangelical Christian about my tattoo.
Why can’t we just live here to LOVE and not to judge? Why can’t we live in a community where we treat each other as creatures created in the image and likeness of God?
We are not here to judge. It is not our role.
If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. – 1 Corinthians 13:1
