by Stacy McDonald of both Ladies Against Feminism and Your Sacred Calling – At Least I’m Not Like Them
Interesting considering all the garbage, finger-pointing and outright falsehoods presented as the gospel truth at Ladies Against Feminism. LAF hasn’t been updated in over a week now. Wonder what’s up with that?
It is so easy to look at the vile sins of others and congratulate ourselves (and one another) that we are at least not like THEM. Phew! But, if we look closely, we may discover that we have sins that other people see (or God sees) in an equally reprehensible way. And, yes, I needed this reminder from God’s Word this morning. It is so easy to focus on our own hurt.
We say, “God, go get him!” But, Jesus says, “You know not what you ask! (Matt 20:22)” As Nathan warned David, “You are the man.” (2 Samuel 12:5–7) When we desire to see “justice” visited upon our neighbor, we should soberly consider what that means for us.
Regardless of what sort of evil you are condemning or what sort of innocent you are defending, it is no excuse for arrogance, mockery, bitterness, condemnation, or spite. And to sympathetically encourage those things in others is equally harmful. These are not the new Fruits of the Spirit.
