Making Fun is No Fun

Lucky You. You get to hear me vent. If you can't handle it, run now.

Last chance to turn back. Don't blame me later.

I've learned that not everyone in my church is really a Christian. Really. I know you probably already know that (maybe even about your church). We know that it's just a collection of sinners trying. They just try in a different way. I just hate it when it is a glaring obvious fact that I can't deny. And I have to admit that yes, they go to my church. Yes, I'm embarrassed to be in the same location as them at least once a week. Yes, they warm a pew, but no, they don't seem to learn anything by osmosis. I just hope they aren't out in the world proclaiming to be a Christian (which I know they do, as they are pride-filled). Ahh, I'm no better as I rant about them.

I hate it when someone thinks they are so good, and they make fun of someone else to make themselves look better. It's either the underdog in me, or my need to cheer the underdog. This person made fun of another parishioner (one of my friends from Bible Study) publicly. How could you find enjoyment in this? I called a good Christian friend for wise counsel, and I'm praying for the meanie (fellow sinner) now. She (Good friend) also reminded me to tell Satan to get away from me, as he was fueling my anger. The stupidity was wrong, I defended my friend, and it's enough. I'll just pray that the meanie becomes more like Jesus, and has the opportunity to meet Him one day.

I just can't imagine. The finding pleasure at making fun. I've never understood that. I do know, from psychology, that it means that person is insecure.

May you be secure enough that you never sink to that level. That you never need to hurt someone to make yourself feel stronger.

To the Meanie: That other person is doing the best she can, and struggles to be a better person in her sleep than you are awake! She constantly reflects to make herself more humble, and a better mother. You should consider it. Tone down that pride, and take a look at your own life.

Note to self: Keep praying for meanie. No one else may be praying for her.

Does this make sense? I would say, mean people suck. God sould say...

Psalm 1
BOOK I : Psalms 1-41
1 Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers.
2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
and on his law he meditates day and night.
3 He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.
4 Not so the wicked! They are like chaff
that the wind blows away.
5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.
6 For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish.

Do you mean, does the Psalm make sense?

Yes, we should stay away from wicked and mockers. They'll blow away, not be rooted.

Yeah, God thinks they suck too. They'll not make it thru judgment-their way will perish.

It also says we should not stand in the way of sinners. It's hard not to do when you see someone being mean to someone else.

Yes - the psalm makes perfect sense & I can
see why the situation is hard for you.
I really don't know what to suggest except perhaps talking to this mean person in a non-confrontaional manner or calling them out
without pointing a finger. I'm not a therapist
or expert on human nature, however I wish you all the best & perhaps prayers will bring an answer to your dilemna.

THanks. I've been in prayer. Lots of prayer for them and their soul, and me to accept what I can't change. : )
