Boy oh boy… we sure need to be so careful about judging our brothers and sisters in the Lord (or anyone else, for that matter), for as we judge, certainly so will we be judged. We forget that.
(This morning I was watching the news. Pat Robertson was at it again, saying that this horrendous earthquake in Haiti is a result of the pact they made with the devil a little over 100 years ago…) (I just noticed that the majority of “calamities of judgment” in the Bible seem to have been peoples afflicting other peoples… other than the plagues on Egypt and events related to the exodus and the conquering of the Promised Land)… Papa??
Jeremiah 2:13 For my people have committed two evils: They have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters, to hew for themselves cisterns, broken cisterns that can hold no water… 19. Your own wickedness will correct you, and your apostasies will reprove you: know therefore and see that it is evil and bitter for you to forsake the LORD your God, and the dread of Me is not in you, declares the Lord GOD of hosts.
Proverbs 5:21 For the ways of a man are before the eyes of the LORD, and He watches all his paths. 22. His own iniquities will capture the wicked, and he will be held with the cords of his sin.
