“Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all sins. Wisdom is found in the lips of him who has understanding, but a rod is for the back of him who is devoid of understanding. Wise people store up knowledge, but the mouth of the foolish is near destruction.” Proverbs 12-14.
I don’t know how could I say it, but I am saddened to hear irresponsible remarks from people denouncing religion and faith in God as a deterrent to progress. They blame people’s misery and poverty for placing much of their hopes to God. What a sad state of mind branding God’s word as useless and irrelevant in the life of man. They don’t only show their ignorance to God’s words, they are blaspheming God.
I feel pity of people who feels and speaks nothing but hatred in their hearts. There is nothing good that comes from their hearts but their “annoying frustrations in life,” as a lady blogger said. They love to spit on people’s faces only to have it landed on their own. They are languishing in darkness and lead a sorrowful life. There are so much evil that come out of from their mouth, they curse people like dragons with fire in their mouth. They laugh in thunder when they see people are outraged by their statements. They sow seeds of fear and confusion, they are excellent instruments of deceit whose souls have been on Evil’s possession long ago.
Yet they have the nerve to see evil on the lives of other people? Their hearts is so callous that they could no longer differentiate what is right from wrong. All they do is bark, bark, bark, as if what matters most to them to belittle and incapacitate other people and fall prey of their arrogance. They are ridiculous non-sense beings who despise God and all those who believe in him. Looping more on the side of evil, there is not even a tiny strand of kindness from their words. They see nothing but evil in the society, they cannot filter the words coming out from their mouths. Perhaps they are severely afflicted with rejection syndrome an illness that does not only kill the body but soul.
I pity them, I harbor no grudge against them. If I have my way I’ll build bridges to bring them to the side of truth; to see love instead of hatred, and to speak of kindness instead of condemnation.
But if they turn to God, He can give them cure and relief from the tragedy of the past that may have driven them to behave that way. Yes if only they allow God to change their hearts, they can resume to experience the joy of loving and living in the light of the Lord. I pray that they may have a change of heart while it is not yet too late.
