Haiti needs compassion not JUDGEMENTPosted Thursday, January 14, 2010, at 8:45 AM
Please shut up.
This is Pats comment on the Haiti earthquake:
"Something happened a long time ago in Haiti, and people might not want to talk about it. They were under the heel of the French. You know, Napoleon III, or whatever. And they got together and swore a pact to the Devil. They said, we will serve you if you'll get us free from the French. True story. And so, the Devil said, okay it's a deal."
OK.....so what compassion and love does this show?
This, and ignorant comments like this, is why people think Christians as a whole are fake and horrid.
Where is the weeping over the children that are dead, the mothers and fathers in turmoil because they cannot find their loved ones?
Why are Christians, as a whole, so quick to point fingers: "You did something bad , therefore God's wrath will be poured out on you..."
Sounds like Zeus to me, not the Bright Morningstar.
Jesus did not come to the world to condemn it. John 3:17-19.
People already know they are condemned because of what they do, Jesus showed us the Father as compassion and love.
I do not for one bit believe that Haiti had the wrath of God poured out on them.
It is a terrible circumstance in which, God's love and mercy can shine forth in his True Servants.
How can you show your love?
Pray for them and the workers in Haiti.

Find a reputable Ministry that is sending supplies and people.
I am so glad that I met the Real Jesus when I needed Him, instead of the one who is vengeful and full of contempt. If you know the real deal, you'll be able to spot the fakes in a instant.
Matt. 25: 35-40 is pretty darn clear on what we are supposed to do. Instead I have seen it turned into this:
I was hungry,
And you formed a humanities group to discuss my hunger.
I was imprisoned,
And you crept off quietly to your chapel and prayed for my release.
I was naked,... and you scoffed..
And in your mind you debated the morality of my appearance.
I was sick,
And you knelt and thanked God for your health.
I was homeless,
And you preached a sermon on the spiritual shelter of the love of God.
I was lonely, and you left me alone to pray for me.
You seem so holy, so close to God --
But I am still very hungry -- and lonely -- and cold. (Quote: "Skip Newby")
Let's turn that around by asking the Holy Spirit to lead us and reveal compassion as God sees it.
