Judge-mental hmm... No!
Some people won't even except Jesus as their Lord because someone that claimed to be a Christian showed hate towards them. A lot of people say the reason they don't seek God is because of how they were treated by so-called believers. So I am trying to let people know that even if someone protrayed Jesus to them in an un-loving way not to let them stop them from having a relationship with God through His son Jesus Christ.
Yes for sure you, me and the rest of us have sinned and sin separates us from God. The only way are sins our erased and cleansed only by Jesus. So even if we have messed up- no matter how bad- Jesus can save us. God loves us all and sent Jesus for us all because we all need to be redeemed.
YES, there are people out there that are just looking at the mistakes of us Christians make but our love as God said we're to have for all people must show more than our failures/ sins/ mistakes we make- They must be able to see the love of our Saviour.
It is a sin that must be repented of when we have pushed people away with the hatred some have displayed wrongfully.
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Rom 3;23
There is not a righteous man on earth who does what is right and never sins.> Ecc 7:20
5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” 6 Now some of the experts in the law were sitting there, turning these things over in their minds: 7 “Why does this man speak this way? He is blaspheming! Who can forgive sins but God alone?” 8 Now immediately, when Jesus realized in his spirit that they were contemplating such thoughts, he said to them, “Why are you thinking such things in your hearts? 9 Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Stand up, take your stretcher, and walk’?
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us [our] sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.>John 1:9
Proverbs 28:13 He who conceals his sins does not prosper, but whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy.
who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.> Titus 2;14
To address the fact God works through people is true and not sure why you stated this at all in response to this question Lady Guinevere. God bless you and your understanding in JESUS name!
While we were yet in sin Jesus loved us!
Also some people tell others God hates them & it angers me because it's not true!
