I've found that people who accuse others of being the devil, usually have the Devil himself whispering in their ears. Being that we are imperfect, basic reasoning would only assume that we are unfit to pass pure judgement on anyone or anything. I believe that we can all agree on that to some extent, but of course stands the possibility that I am wrong by that very same logic. Judgement is not just for sinners, it is for choice in general. My point is related in that choice is in fact reliant on perspective and perception (Matthew 7:1-5).
On one hand, we could see a man begging for money on the side of the road and think of him as a man in need. Yet in today's world, we are taught to be conservative in our trust, therefore on the other hand, we could see that man, and question his legitimacy. Then of course there are those who insist that instead of mercy and charity, that these fellow human beings of ours should just up and stop being homeless and without work, as though they have a choice in the matter. But of course who can blame them when there people who do fake and cheat their way through life for a quick buck by pretending to be beggars? It's a mess of a situation in which no one and everyone is guilty. Confusion is just another weapon in the hands of Hell (1 John 4:1, 1 Peter 5:8).
In light of the death of Westburo Baptist founder, Fred Phelps, I felt the opportunity arose to write on the subject of judgement, since he and his little cult have been the poster boys (and girls) of hateful judgement for years. I've personally always found them to be adorably irritating to the point in which I pray for God to just incinerate them and their "church" with the same angels whose handiwork is known to this day in history as the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. But I shouldn't be quick to anger, and especially not to judge them or the things they've done (James 4:11-12). Let the record show that I believe that literally all that they've done is a disgrace to the Christian faith, let alone any monotheistic religion. I am taught however, to always forgive and always love despite the vein in my forehead that may or may not be on the verge of exploding out of shear rage for the ungodly picketing of funerals, churches, concerts or even pride parades(Ephesians 4:32, Luke 17:3-4). The only times an individual should ever pass moral judgement are when that judgement is over their own choices and how it will affect others, as well as their relationship with a loving God.
Truth be told, the only thing really keeping that rage at bay is knowing that in reality, they're dead wrong, and will be given justice according to the horrible things they've done. Still, my opinions may be similar to those of majority who know of these sick Individuals, but it is not my place to pass judgement or say that they're going to Hell (chances are still pretty good that there's a special place for them down there). But here's the deal that many Christians tend to forget when they allow that same anger to grab hold of them whilst talking about, watching or listening to people like those in the Westburo Baptist Church: we are called upon to love and to forgive, despite the flaws of those whom our human nature tend to judge. The only enemies are the ones that can't be seen. Fear and ignorance, derived from confusion, Illusion, or deception brought about by the Devil himself, with the rest of Hell.
We must have faith and with that faith, we must have grace and love (Mark 12:30-31). It is good to strive for a life that would leave both you and God smiling. Paradoxes and hypocrites are not welcomed in the Kingdom of God, just as brewing fires wouldn't be fit in a forest (Luke 6:37). The word 'gospel' translates to 'good news', and when it is that we are not spreading the good news through the Word of God, it is encouraged to live a life through that very Word. For the Word is God, and God is love(1 John 4:8).
