Rant: Trying not to Judge

I recently posted a Devotional from the “Stillspeaking people” about how we should avoid judging people.

I did NOT get thru the day without seeming to break my commitment to be more understanding, to try harder to understand how people can arrive at the political, religious, and spiritual positions so at odds from mine.

Let me rephrase that:

“…to try harder to understand how people who avow that they are Christianscan arrive at the political, religious, and spiritual positions so at odds from mine.”

Is it judgemental to wonder what the motivation is of “christians” – religious figures/leaders, politians, spokespersons, politcos – who tell the most outrageous lies?

Is it judgemental to wonder what the motivation is of “christians” – religious figures/leaders, politians, spokespersons, politcos – who feed racial dividions by promoting and speading bseless sterotypes?

Is it judgemental to wonder what the motivation is of “christians” – religious figures/leaders, politians, spokespersons, politcos – who impute the most horrible motivations to anyone and everyone who is the least bit different from them and/or their base in order to raise money or gain polircal office?

Is it judgemental to wonder what the motivation is of “christians” – religious figures/leaders, politians, spokespersons, politcos – who call Donald Trump, Glen Beck, Newt Gringrich, and Rush Limbaugh Christians, but refuse to acknowledge that Obama is a Christian?

Is it judgemental if when it comes to these “christians” – religious figures/leaders, politicians, spokespersons, politcos – I stop calling these people “my brothers and sisters in Christ”?

I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary — the evil it does is permanent.

In many parts of the world the people are searching for a solution which would link the two basic values: peace and justice. The two are like bread and salt for mankind.
