The Missing Admonition from Stacy's Piece

Stacy McCain makes some excel­lent bib­li­cal points in this piece con­cern­ing a young lady who with some dia­bolic help has made some really bad choices

Can you imag­ine the insane hatred inside this woman, that she would take a Bible — a gift from her own grand­mother! — and make it into such a heinously abu­sive cel­e­bra­tion of degeneracy?

Do you think that peo­ple this crazy and hate­ful are not also in the grasp of a fright­en­ing evil? What kind of per­son do you think would act this way? Nine months later, the same per­son posted this:

More­over he points to bad deci­sions hav­ing bad results:

So, five years ago, she began doing tarot card read­ings, and by Novem­ber 2014 she’s so sick and crazy she’s solic­it­ing dona­tions to help her get diag­nosed to be eli­gi­ble for fed­eral dis­abil­ity pay­ments. Maybe you think this is all just a coin­ci­dence, that Robin’s men­tal ill­ness and her sex­ual per­ver­sion are unre­lated to her blas­phe­mous hatred of God and her dab­bling in the occult. Maybe I’m just an igno­rant hill­billy Bible-​thumper for sus­pect­ing that Robin’s mis­for­tunes are not entirely coincidental.

Remem­ber­ing Christ’s admo­ni­tion from Luke Chap­ter 13 verses 15

At that time some peo­ple who were present there told him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had min­gled with the blood of their sacrifices.

He said to them in reply, “Do you think that because these Galileans suf­fered in this way they were greater sin­ners than all other Galileans? By no means! But I tell you, if you do not repent, you will all per­ish as they did!

Or those eigh­teen peo­ple who were killed when the tower at Siloam fell on them - do you think they were more guilty than every­one else who lived in Jerusalem? By no means! But I tell you, if you do not repent, you will all per­ish as they did!”

…I find it improb­a­ble that her phys­i­cal ill­ness is directly related to these par­tic­u­lar bad decisions.

How­ever even if we come to that con­clu­sion con­cern­ing ali­ments phys­i­cal and /​or men­tal the 2nd half of both of the exam­ples Christ gives are in play here: “I tell you, if you do not repent, you will all per­ish as they did.”

That being the case we are required to pray for Ms. Robin and not just for her con­ver­sion in the spirit of (I’m bet­ter than her) but for her phys­i­cal and men­tal well being and hap­pi­ness in the spirit of love for as Christ said

“But to you who hear I say, love your ene­mies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mis­treat you.

Luke 6:2728

or as in an ear­lier tes­ta­ment:

When you come upon your enemy’s ox or ass going astray, see to it that it is returned to him. When you notice the ass of one who hates you lying pros­trate under its bur­den, by no means desert him; help him, rather, to raise it up.

Exo­dus 23:45

The exam­ple of how this young lady’s deci­sions nei­ther lead to hap­pi­ness nor peace is an impor­tant one, but not as vital as the reminder that she is as much a child of God made in his image as any other per­son and Christ loves her.

And to those who insist that prayer for her is not worth our time let me leave you with one final verse from Mark 10:27

Jesus looked at them and said, “For human beings it is impos­si­ble, but not for God. All things are pos­si­ble for God.”

Stacy McCain makes some excellent biblical points in this piece concerning a young lady who with some diabolic help has made some really bad choices 

Can you imagine the insane hatred inside this woman, that she would take a Bible — a gift from her own grandmother! — and make it into such a heinously abusive celebration of degeneracy?

Moreover he points to bad decisions having bad results:

So, five years ago, she began doing tarot card readings, and by November 2014 she’s so sick and crazy she’s soliciting donations to help her get diagnosed to be eligible for federal disability payments. Maybe you think this is all just a coincidence, that Robin’s mental illness and her sexual perversion are unrelated to her blasphemous hatred of God and her dabbling in the occult. Maybe I’m just an ignorant hillbilly Bible-thumper for suspecting that Robin’s misfortunes are not entirely coincidental.

Remembering Christ’s admonition from Luke Chapter 13 verses 1-5

At that time some people who were present there told him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with the blood of their sacrifices.

He said to them in reply, “Do you think that because these Galileans suffered in this way they were greater sinners than all other Galileans?  By no means! But I tell you, if you do not repent, you will all perish as they did!

Or those eighteen people who were killed when the tower at Siloam fell on them  – do you think they were more guilty than everyone else who lived in Jerusalem?  By no means! But I tell you, if you do not repent, you will all perish as they did!”

…I find it improbable that her physical illness is directly related to these particular bad decisions.

However even if we come to that conclusion concerning aliments physical and / or mental the 2nd half of both of the examples Christ gives are in play here:  “I tell you, if you do not repent, you will all perish as they did.”

That being the case we are required to pray for Ms. Robin and not just for her conversion in the spirit of (I’m better than her)  but for her physical and mental well being and happiness in the spirit of love for as Christ said

“But to you who hear I say, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,  bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.

Luke 6:27-28

or as in an earlier testament:

When you come upon your enemy’s ox or ass going astray, see to it that it is returned to him.  When you notice the ass of one who hates you lying prostrate under its burden, by no means desert him; help him, rather, to raise it up.

Exodus 23:4-5

The example of how this young lady’s decisions neither lead to happiness nor peace is an important one, but not as vital as the reminder that she is as much a child of God made in his image as any other person and Christ loves her.

And to those who insist that prayer for her is not worth our time let me leave you with one final verse from Mark 10:27

Jesus looked at them and said, “For human beings it is impossible, but not for God. All things are possible for God.”
