I also have to forget the wrongs done to me. I can't recall the times I've let a person's hurtful actions be aimed at me. I do it so others that can't hanndle it as well as I do don't get into the line of fire. What I really look for is an opportunity to help the person that seems to enjoy dishing out hurtful actions. Guilt is a strong tool. I've found at times this person does not even realize the pain they are causing.
Last year I had a co-worker tell me that I was going to Hell when I die because God hates atheist.. I informed this guy about our company Ethics hand book.That his telling me that made work a hostile work place and that it could cost him his job. I told him I liked him, respected his belief in God but work was not a good place for this to happen.
I agree fully. A healthy mind must forget to stay healthy.
Agitated, I don't feel that way at all. Actually I feel sorry for him. The man that told me I was going to hell is one of the biggest backstabbers I've ever met. He turned in another guy for sleeping at work but he does it all the time.way more then any other by fall. If there is a Hell this dude got a guaranteed seat.
Sad thing is this kids are just as bad. My son has to deal with one of his bully sons.He don't pick on my son,my son like his father can't walk by and let it happen he has to steep in and protect the weaker. Got my son in trouble last year when he stopped this bully from beating up a weak skinny freashmen after school.Cops got called, I got called to the school where a policman told me this kid is always causeing problems. He even lit a kid on fire at a party,through everclear alcohol on a passed out a teenager and lit him up.Hurt the kid pretty badly.
If I am wrong and their is a loving God I have no fear of being judged for what I've done on this earth. If God made me he made me this way and knows what it would take to make me a believer.
Perhaps you would have felt less agitated if he had told you that God loves atheists. Your going to hell is an unfortunate consequense of your not accepting His provision so you don't have to go there. His provision, Jesus, is because he loves you, not because he hates you.
