WHEN WE CAN’T LOVE PEOPLE … BECAUSE WE JUDGE, DON’T APPROVE, OR LIKE THEM OR THEIR CHOICES, WE NEED TO AT LEAST LEARN HOW TO LIVE AND LET LIVE … RESPECTING EVERY PERSON’S RIGHT TO CHOOSE

On the news today, 20 km north of my birthplace, Chatham, ON, someone or a group of people posted a sign about God forbidding abortions and homosexuality. Someone else or a group of people took the sign down as it is now reported gone.
 
This type of thing was a key driving force in my decision to study the Bible on my own because I could not understand why Christians could be so hypocritical, disrespectful, mean, and downright vicious.
 
The Bible story of the woman caught committing adultery comes to mind. She is brought to Jesus by a crowd of men who tell Jesus the punishment for an adulterous is stoning. Jesus pauses, bends down, writes in the dirt, and then replies with whomever has not sinned (done things God doesn’t like,but forgives with his merciful love), let him cast the first stone. Jesus then asks the woman if anyone remained and she replies no. Jesus then says who is he to judge either, but to go and sin no more.
 
The Bible contains a lot of do’s and don’ts, but taken out of context or extracted to justify one’s disrespect to another, means we don’t get the big picture … Jesus died to give us peace and God loves us unconditionally so we can learn to do the same for others. Anything less is not what God asks of us all.

The Day After Valentine’s Day … 10 Things to Ponder

The day after Valentine’s Day, people have posted images of the cards, the flowers, and the trinkets received yesterday.

But as many of us know, there is the other side of love many of us have experienced …

  1. There is the pain of rejection when someone we love does not love us in return.
  2. There is the loss of innocence when we realize love does not always overcome our differences.
  3. There is the loss of what could have been when we realize we want separate things in life.
  4. There is despair when we realize people love us conditionally.
  5. There is anger, sadness, grief, and even hate when love turns against us.
  6. There is resentment and maybe even a desire for vengeance with the betrayal of trust and of the commitment.
  7. There is deep sorrow with both a divorce and with a death of a loved one.
  8. There is sorrow for a short or a long time together.
  9. There is regret for not learning to love unconditionally.
  10. There is the emptiness of never feeling loved.

Hopefully, our joys are greater than the sorrows.

Wishing you respect and love, to give and to receive … because without respect, love and its loss, hurts much more.

Respectfully,

Kaitlin

Contrasting Conditional Love and Faith with …

Discovering how conditional faith is like conditional love … both are subject to human interpretation, limitation, judgment, and error … which is why I now choose to put my life, including my love life, in God’s hands … sure beats living in fear.
