self righteous indignation

self rightous

Why are you concerned about your opinions? I do not like this…, “Why is it like this?  Why did he tell it like this?  I would have told it better.  Why did he do that? Etc..  These are the biggest evil and badness.

Taken from Elder Joseph the Heyscast

This is exactly what got Judas to deny Christ.

John 12:4-5

But one of His disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, who would betray Him, said, “Why was this fragrant oil not sold for three hundred denarii and given to the poor?”

So the question, should be directed at me only. Christ said, why have you forsaken me while on the cross? But when it comes to those who crucified him, He says ‘Forgive them for they know not what they do’, eventhough what they were doing was completely wrong. So logical and rational thinking can make us deny Christ today, God forbid, if we don’t focus on our own brokeness.
