Why don’t more Christians take the parable of the debtors seriously? The shorty short short version is this: Guy owes the bank for his house, his 3 cars, his swimming pool and $3million in credit card debt. He begs the bank for mercy because he cannot pay and the bank forgives his entire debt. Everything he owes. The next day he’s walking down the street, sees a guy who owes him $5 for a Subway footlong. He asks the other dude for his sandwich money back and when the dude can’t pay he gives him a royal beatdown.
The point being that we’ve all received Grace in abundance far beyond anything we could have hoped or have any right to expect. So we have no right to be petty to others. Then there’s all the other stuff about not killing and Vengeance being the Lord’s and Judgement belonging to God. So while Mr. Shoot A Man Dead In His Church For Performing Abortions Elsewhere in your own mind you’re something special and God is your Super Best Friend, the rest of us kind of think that you are both a little nuts and a lot wrong on what Christianity is supposed to be about.
Thanks again for making the rest of us look nuts by association. And thanks again for crucifying Christ anew.
