Utterly Alone

The fool says in his heart,
    “There is no God.”
They are corrupt, their deeds are vile;
    there is no one who does good.

Psalm 14:1

New International Version (NIV)

         We are not to judge the unbelievers, but to love them and pray for them.  Since the earliest days of history as we see recorded in the Bible humans have had a tendency to fall away from the One True God of Creation in order to worship false gods or no god.  They have that right to believe as they wish.  Their rebellion against God the Father will seal their fates in the end if that is what they wish to adhere.

          And before we condemn their sin remember that we are all sinners (Romans 3:23).   We in belief are not better than they are.  We are all God's children and equal in his eyes.    God wants the unbelievers to come to Him and to love Him, but he will not exert his force to make them his.   

           We may have a right to unbelief, but we are wrong in doing so.   Jesus can disrupt relationships between those who differ regarding what they believe and don't believe, but Jesus can also heal those relationships when we ask for healing.

           Pray for the unbelievers and love them just as you would love those who believe the same as you believe.

 Be merciful to those who doubt; save others by snatching them from the fire; to others show mercy, mixed with fear—hating even the clothing stained by corrupted flesh.

Jude 1:22-23

New International Version (NIV)

  1. Yes, wise words to pray for the unbelievers and to love on them, not condemn them in any way!


  2. I absolutely agree! God doesn't discriminate. He loves ALL his children. Who are we to judge and not love? <3
