Get Rid Of The “Bad” Apples?

Hi friends! A lot of us feel that the world would be a better place if we could just get rid of all the “bad” people in the world. If this or that person was more like us, we would have a heaven on earth! Right? I guess that would work if we all could Commit and come to an agreement on what’s defined as perfect behavior. But, we can’t because there is no such thing. The idea of perfection is instilled in each individuals mind. It’s an illusion. Most of the time we don’t even live up to our own standard of perfection. So I have to say it’s very hypocritical to judge others so harshly! And Of course there is taboos that I feel no one should do! And a majority of us would agree that certain things are just unacceptable. But just getting rid of those small groups who perform taboos won’t save the world. We all have taken on the role of judge, and we feel like it’s time to clean house to rid the world of “evil”!

Oh wait! We can’t! Now we are arguing amongst each other. Since the creator of our brain gave us the ability to have free will, and our own unique perspectives, we can’t come to an agreement on good or bad? How? I mean everyone has the bible and ten commandments, right? No, and it’s not that easy. Take a look at the following example conversations:

These people say: “People who spank their children are abusive and evil.”

These people say: “Because no one spanks their children is why people  have become evil. People who don’t discipline is bad!”

Who is right and who is wrong? 

These people say: “People who eat meat are savages. It’s a life for God sake!”

These people say: “People who don’t eat meat are pushy and don’t want our bodies to be healthy. They are picking animals over human health! They are bad!”

Who is right and who is wrong? 

These people say: “God only love people of the Christian faith! The rest is bad people going to Hell!”

These people say: “God is love. My Religion/ faith doesn’t teach death or Hell. People like you are bad!”

Who is right and who is wrong? 

These people say:” “The death sentence is barbaric! No one should kill anyone! People who believe in that are savages!”

These people say: “Eye for an eye and tooth for a tooth. This person who killed someone deserve to die. People who don’t believe in the death sentence are bad! They have no regard for victims and care more about the bad guy!”

Who is right and who is wrong? 

These people say: “Same sex couples are wrong. God made man and woman. They are going against nature and God does not Love them. They are bad and going to Hell!”

These people say: “People who say God doesn’t love them have no soul. Same sex couples know no gender and you can’t help who you love. People are people. You people who hate them are savages!”

Who is right and who is wrong?

I could go deeper and deeper down the rabbit hole of examples, but I’m sure you guys get it by now. Some of you couldn’t stomach some deeper examples! But, I suggest you do this exercise with yourself, because you’ll get better at seeing things from other’s point of view. Anyway, who is right? Who is the bad apples that we can get rid of to make a better world? A heaven on earth? The best we can do is feed our ego, put our judge gown on, and live in the illusion of superiority swearing that we are the only ones with the right answer. Or, we can shove each other’s religious answers down each other’s throat. Either way we are still bumping heads and still don’t know who should stay or go because we all are claiming to be right!

2 Corinthians 12:9

And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness ” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.

Are you the ultimate judge of right or wrong?
