Mr. Ledger and God

I encourage you to read this.

I was saddened to hear of the untimely death of Heath Ledger (no matter the cause), and now to see what WBC is spewing again.

Instead of bashing, we should have compassion. A mother and father lost a son. It doesn't matter who, or what he stood for. He's gone and they still grieve.

"If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other."- Mother Teresa

I guess that I shouldn't be surprised. Some people are still racist and biased. They're lost. That much hasn't changed. People latch on to someone else's thoughts and ideas, without questioning them - and they should.

What if people would have taken a stand instead of following the views of Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, and others?

It is so frustrating to live in a world filled with such anger. Some find it their sole purpose to judge and condemn others. They claim to believe and follow Jesus, yet they're missing most of the meaning. They don't get it. It isn't about, "we're right and you're wrong.", or thinking "we're better than you, because of ...". In reality, they turn more people away. They do more harm than good. If we want to reach others, we need to learn about them, love them, and gain their trust, without judging. Then, we can show them Christ.

I appreciated this from the post.

"Do not let anyone tell you whose names are written in My Book Of Life. That is between Me and that person alone. They have not seen My book. Lots of people read My biography and have trouble with it. There seems to be a lot of information in there that can confuse some of My followers. So, I will simplify it again for some of My followers who might be a little confused."
"Love Me. Love others. My Father will judge and condemn."
