In gods eye who is the better person

19 posts in this topic

Alright now I am not strictly a Christian and have always had my own ideas about what is right and wrong and seemingly enough quite a lot of what I have realized myself to be wrong through common sense is very similar to what Christians believe to be wrong.

 

Now I first of all believe that abortion is immoral and killing life and just because the legal system allows women to do it doesn't make it and less moral. When a man attacks a pregnant woman and the baby inside her dies he gets charged with homicide yet if it's the woman killing her own baby according to the law makers then that's alright. I find that totally wrong. 

 

I also believe that things like promoting homosexuality like the media does is immoral also. While I don't hate a homosexual person I don't think it should be portrayed as a positive thing because the reality is that it's harmful to your health and the health of the human species. Also I don't believe homosexual people are born gay. That is just an excuse. Whether you are a person who is gay or who only likes a certain race of person or some sick idiot that has sex with animals then it's all a result of your upbringing and life experiences up until that point.

 

 

Now I have no problem in hurting someones feelings if they are doing the wrong thing or supporting immoral things. For instance I will openly call someone an idiot if they are being an idiot.

 

My mother claims she is more moral than me and claims that hurting peoples feelings means you go to hell. She just tolerates everything and anyone which I think is a destructive thing not a good thing. She supports abortion and also supports homosexuality and thinks homosexuality is a positive thing. She always makes excuses for people that do bad things. She is a feminist which I also think is destructive to humans as a whole. 

 

 

So while I am not a Christian, Who do you think is the better person out of me and my mom. My mom uses saying like "treat others how you would want to be treated yourself" and I fully agree with that but feel that you can't just say that to everything. I think that saying is only useful if the other person is a normal level headed human being like yourself. 

No one wants to get punched right. Does that mean if someones attacking you that you think oh treat others how you would want to be treated. Better not punch him back or defend myself because if I was him I wouldn't want that. lol that is stupid. My mom uses that saying to excuse people for bad behavior. 

 

Also if a person were to attack and try to kill me then I would defend myself and if they died in the process I can't say I would feel too bad because they were trying to kill me. Self defense isn't immoral. I am not saying though if they try to kill you and you can easily stop them that you should then kill them. I am saying in a case where it's unavoidable, For instance they run at you with a knife and you shoot them.

I have no idea what the bible says about this but that is the way I feel about it. 

 

Something my mom being a feminist also seems to do is give excuses for bad female behavior. For instance "Oh she probably cheated on her husband because he wasn't good enough for her" or "Oh that husband hit the wife so he deserved to have a hitman hired to kill him".

What I think doesnt matter. It is what God thinks that matters. How any of us stand before Him is what matters.

     Welcome to Worthy Christian Forums......................Your title asks..."Who is better in Gods eyes",God is not a respecter of persons & we all fall short of the Glory of God,He loves us all so very much .....So much that He sent His Only Begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life

      Since this is the welcome thread,when you have just 5 posts you can start a thread & post it in an appropriate forum and we can have a nice discussion about all the things you spoke of & you will get lots of replies.................for now I will just say,I don't know you or your mom & I probably would never think of either of you as being "better" than the other.........just two different people,God Bless you both

Glad to have you join us.

According to Jesus the only thing your mom was right about is that saying "you idiot" makes you guilty of hell fire. Since I have been guilty of muttering that at dangerous drivers, I can't say much.

The point that Jesus made is that no one is righteous and everyone is going to hell. The only escape is to receive the blood that Jesus provided on the cross as payment for your sins and imperfections. That is the only way to have friendship and peace with God the Father. Jesus arose from the dead some 2000 years ago today so we Christians proclaim today: He is risen! Hallelujah!

Blessings,

Willa
