Must we blame Judas Iscariot for playing a vital role in saving mankind?
Judas Iscariot is known as the BETRAYER. He betrayed Jesus. But the Bible strongly points out that someone must betray Jesus so that he is crucified and will die to take away the sins of the world. Should we blame Judas when he actually fulfilled God's master plan to save mankind?
Even though it had to be done, Judas did it with evil intent. He didn't intend to advance Jesus's plan. His intention was to sell Jesus and betray him.
Luke 22:3-4 says that Judas was influenced by Satan to betray Jesus.
" Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve.
And he went his way, and communed with the chief priests and captains, how he might betray him unto them."
We also need Satan in our lives, but that doesn't make him good. We just need the option of choosing evil so that we can choose good.
If God ordained before time that Judas would betray him (which the Bible says), then all of that is irrelevant. Judas had no choice in the matter. His "evil intent" was ultimately from God.
If you were Judas, what would you do? Judas was forced to commit the act. The Bible mentioned that Jesus foretold that Judas would be the one betraying him. And when Judas betrayed Jesus, Jesus accused him. How crazy is this?
Judas had the choice to betray Jesus or not. Jesus simply told people what choice he was going to make because Jesus knows the future.
Peter also had a choice to deny Christ or not. Jesus just looked into the future and know what choice he would make
And if these two men didn't comply with Jesus' prophecies would you believe in Jesus?
Sorry snowman, but you are clearly wrong Scripturally. The Bible says judas' betrayal was DETERMINED. God wasn't just seeing the future, he decreed that it would happen that way.
God chose Judas as the betrayer. The what reward did Judas get? He got a big curse.
Blame is an ego thing. Never blame.
Judas was evil and that is why Jesus picked him. Christ used the traits which burdened Judas to help in the completion of his rescue mission, just as he used the weakness of his other disciples in using the sword. When the disciple cut off the ear of the high priest's guard in the garden, Jesus knew that the disciple would later suffer by the sword. But the galvanization of the high priests' wrath was essential.
Never blame. Always take responsibility for everything that happens, no matter who is apparently the cause. By that you show your love for your neighbor. You wish only that they get what they desire, even if it is to your own hurt. By this, your responsibility makes it impossible for you ever again to be a victim, just as Jesus was never a victim of what was done to him.
