Daily Devotional – 6/13/16 “We all fall short … Who are you to judge?”


Stop being so holy that you forget the times you weren’t! See, many times when tragedy strikes, like the one in Orlando, holy rollers want to make it out as God’s wrath. When in fact, it was someone hateful whose sole intent was to do bodily harm that caused it. Think about it, if God allowed over 100 people to be shot because of their sins, what were the sins of all those babies killed at Sandy Hook? There are no satisfactory answers to truly justify these things but what I can say is; it is the evilness of people who causes these disastrous attacks, not God’s wrath! This is why some folk need to keep their mouth closed! This is why, WE, as Saints of God need to consult God, study the bible and pray BEFORE we open our mouth. I can only imagine how displeasing it is to God when folk, who supposedly follow Him, speak foolishness such as this. I just don’t understand how you can justify hundreds of people being killed as God’s wrath. Oh, it’s Sodom and Gomorrah all over again. LIES! READ your bible. There were many evil things going on there, not just homosexuality. Not only that but the bible says in John 3:16-18, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.” God sent Jesus, after Sodom and Gomorrah, as a way to offer light in a darken world, not destroy it by mass killings.

Please understand, I am in no way condoning sin but that still doesn’t negate the fact, people didn’t deserve to die the way they did. Will they all go to Heaven? Only God knows. The same way He is the only one who will know if you will. Just because you look and sound holy, it doesn’t necessarily mean you are. And just because you are up front about the things you do with the disclaimer, “God knows my heart,” it still doesn’t mean you will be on the train bound for the golden highway. This is why you have to shut up and stop the foolishness! This is why you ought to be in God’s word instead of conforming to the standards of this world, jumping on every bandwagon or thinking you know God’s thoughts. It doesn’t matter that you have an ordination certificate, an Associate in Biblical Studies, a Bachelors in Bible, a Masters of Divinity or a Doctorate in Ministry; it doesn’t matter if you are a pew certified bible scholar, minister, reverend, pastor, evangelist, apostle or bishop; you still fall short a lot of days! It is not up to us to decide who God loves and who He doesn’t. He loved you when you were an alcoholic, drug addict, whoremonger, liar, back biter and sinner but I guess you don’t remember those times, huh? Why don’t you pray instead of talking because there is a city of families mourning and they don’t need your judgment?

Genesis 8:21, “And the LORD was pleased with the aroma of the sacrifice and said to himself, “I will never again curse the ground because of the human race, even though everything they think or imagine is bent toward evil from childhood. I will never again destroy all living things.”
