HYPOCRISY

HYPOCRISY

Sunday, July 3, 2022

What do a Temper Tantrum, the Terrible Twos, & a Rebellious Teenager all have in common?

THE HYPOCRISY UNPLEASANTLY FASCINATES ME...

...IN HOW WE ADULTS ARE SO ARROGANT AS TO CALL A CHILD’S EMOTIONAL OUTBURST A "TEMPER-TANTRUM", BUT NOT CALL OUR OWN AS SUCH

...ESPECIALLY WHEN WE ARE IN ANGER.

MANY AN ADULT HAS AS EQUAL OF AN EMOTIONAL OUTBURST AS A 2 YEAR OLD, the only difference is that the adults have vocabulary and the toddler does not.

DON’T THINK FOR ONE SECOND THAT BEING ABLE TO USE WORDS MAKES OUR EMOTIONAL OUTBURST MORE ACCEPTABLE, FOR IT OBJECTIVELY MAKES THE CHILD’S INABILITY TO EXPRESS THEMSELVES IN WORDS ACCEPTABLE AND OUR'S A GREATER EVIL.

...OR TO BELIEVE THAT A CHILD IS IN THE "TERRIBLE TWOS", BECAUSE NOW WE ARE EXPERIENCING THE FRUIT OF OUR: BAD EXAMPLES, FAILURE TO PROTECT THEM FROM DEMONIC INFLUENCES COMING FROM OUR OWN DEMONS & FROM THE MEDIA THAT WE WATCH AND LISTEN TO AND ALLOW THEM TO DO SO AS WELL, FAILURE TO PRAY WITH THEM OUT LOUD FOR THEIR EMOTIONAL HEALING FROM CHRIST EVERY TIME THEY HAVE AN UNPLEASANT EMOTION, AND FAILURE TO TEACH THEM HOW TO HAVE A FRIENDSHIP WITH CHRIST AND WORK ON THEIR INTERIOR INTELLECTUAL SPIRITUAL LIFE...YES, ALL BEGINNING BEFORE THE AGE OF TWO...

WHILE WE SUPPORT OUR "GREATNESS" AS A PARENT TO OTHERS (first sign of bigger sinfulness)...OR WE SCAPEGOAT & BLAME OUR CHILDREN FOR OUR EMOTIONAL SUFFERING & DIFFICULT DAY...OR WE RATIONALIZE WHY WE DID THE BEST WE COULD, WHILE FAILING TO GIVE THIS SAME EXCUSE TO OUR CHILD.

...OR TO SAY WE HAVE A REBELLIOUS TEENAGER, (AND DEFIANT) WHILE WE ARE EVEN MORE SO WITH GOD AND ANY AUTHORITY THAT WE DISAGREE WITH OR WHOM WE BELIEVE IS UNJUST,...WHILE WE FAIL TO GIVE THIS SAME EXCUSE TO THE TEENAGER.

LORD JESUS WE ADULTS ARE SORRY FOR OUR ARROGANCE AND HYPOCRISY, OUR BAD EXAMPLES, AND OUR JUDGMENTALNESS AND INJUSTICE, AND OUR FAILURE TO CORRECTLY WORK TO HAVE A REAL CLOSE FRIENDSHIP WITH YOU AND GO IMMEDIATELY TO YOU IN SORROW FOR AND HEALING OF OUR BAD EMOTIONS (WHICH ARE SINFUL), AND WORK ON OUR SINS OF OUR INTERIOR INTELLECTUAL SPIRITUAL LIFE...

...PLEASE HEAL US AND GIVE US HUMILITY, TRUTH, YOUR LOVE, GRACES AND VIRTUES, IN ORDER THAT WE BE A GOOD EXAMPLE FOR OUR CHILDREN, THANK YOU.
