JOEL OSTEEN 2016
LOVING UNCONDITIONALLY

Teaching Acceptance by All of God’s Children
Maybe Especially Toward Those Trapped in Addiction
In Our Common Journey of Life

The Daily Walk with Miracles, September 4, 2017, by Paul Evans, video is JOEL OSTEEN 2016 – LOVING UNCONDITIONALLY (Listen). If only we can agree that Jesus is the Son of God and that He died for us, why pay so much attention to doctrines which separate us? For whom did not Jesus die, and to whom did he not show God’s loving kindness while on earth? Featured image is courtesy of www.gr0wing.com.

prayers can help or save the addicted people we love, please pray fervently for those addicted to hard drugs

Prayers can help or save the addicted people we love, please pray fervently for those addicted to hard drugs. Where would any of us be without God’s mercy in our lives? I have helped (or tried to help) a few friends who suffered from bad addiction problems from hard drugs. I can’t tell you how negatively I have been judged because of this in my home town of Wooster. I strongly believe that if I HADN’T offered the unconditional help I tried to give, I would now feel less worthy before God.

I KNOW I didn’t do my job with them very well, partly because of my innocence and ignorance at that time in my life, but I sure made a very strong, as well as demanding effort. You see, I refused to judge them, because I KNOW God loves an addict as much as He does a policeman, and all I did I feel was either out of innocence (naiveté) or that innate knowledge that God loved my friends, too, just as much as me. Yet the experience, over more than two years, was so nerve-wracking and personally destructive that my nervous system remains an issue, and at times own very faith was at times shaken. There are still a lot of negative ramifications from what I did during those two plus years.

Actually, however, I now feel that my efforts, however ineffective they turned out to be, were very much what God asked of me, at the time, and I have few regrets (I just wish I had done my job better). But I know that with the knowledge I had at the time, I could not have done much better than I did. The fact that I handled it badly was because of my essential innocence in dealing with addiction to hard drugs and with “street-hardened” people. And basically it cost me almost everything I had, even almost my life. But I want that effort to have a continuing meaning, and I don’t believe that my basic ideas about this were wrong. As both Mark and John try to relate to us, for Christians, mercy must triumph over judgment.

Therefore, now I am hoping to have a sort of ministry continuing to help anyone with addiction issues (see below and Cry Out to Jesus: Hope for the Addicted–A New Direction for The Daily Walk, The Daily Walk with Miracles, June 30, 2016, by Paul Evans, and especially see my page on Addiction and Rehab Resources, which is from June 30, 2016). I am strongly reminded of passages in the New Testament (such as James 2:13 and Matthew 5:7) which state that God is first and foremost the God of mercy and more so than He is about judgment, and that those who offer mercy will be shown mercy.

I would like to refer anyone who has questions about what addiction is or how it should be treated to Addiction & Recovery: The Definitive Expert Resource Guide For You, Your Family, or Your Patients (PDF), Lumiere Healing Centers, by Dr. Dina Macaluso, Psy.D, L.M.H.C., Alan Boyd, & Sharon Therien. This work is really excellent, concentrating on addiction dealing in substance abuse. (It can be argued that other addictive behaviours outside of (besides) substance abuse can be equally destructive.)

I smoke cigarettes and neither want to or can stop, and it hurts me to be judged because I smoke or troubled because of people’s negative judgements. I know in my heart that God loves addicted people just as much as He loves policemen, I believe that with all my heart. God has healed me somewhat of any mental afflictions I may have had although often I do feel quite a bit of emotional pain, simply because so very many people judge me in my hometown because of what I tried to do. As I am officially “disabled” and I am a “different” sort of guy, who never really “fit in” that much, and for other reasons I need not get into, I feel that I am somewhat “high functioning” autistic. I FEEL, at a personal level, the attitudes of those around me, partly I think because I have a lot of love in my heart. This involves a certain sort of “mediumship,” which spiritualist Christians believe is basically the same thing as the spiritual gift of Prophecy. At any rate, I do sometimes feel inspired by God in my writing. However I do realize I need to do much more reading in my Bible and continue my studies in comparative religion — I fully admit I have no formal training and am “ignorant” by some people’s standards of Bible knowledge. However I do know the Gospels pretty well, and it is mainly on that basis that I order and live my life.

As far my own faith goes, I strongly believe that people mustn’t judge or hate others because of their addictions or odd or different behaviours, or different beliefs. We’re all just humans, the important thing is to realise how much God loves us. As Joel Osteen says in the video, below, “God is counting on us to make a difference in people’s lives.” He also says, “Don’t look at me with eyes of judgment, look at me through eyes of love.” I am reminded that, yes, God’s salvation is in a sense a free gift, yet it puts us into a covenental relationship with God. And that Costs, sometimes even up to our very lives.

So far as I can see everybody likes the idea of unconditional love theoretically. But you see, it COSTS, and people would rather judge you, so far as has been my experience. See what I mean about society’s judgement and judging people by watching Rush – Subdivisions – 5:32… “conform or be cast out.” It is wrong for a Christian person to judge someone, no matter what. As Jesus says, do not judge and you will not be judged. And you also just feel better when you live this way, because in your heart you Know from the Gospels that you really should not judge people. Assess your situation and try to adapt to it, yes, OK, but this is different from judging people.

Paul Evans: “I consider myself a Christian man, spiritualist, charismatic, unorthodox. I don’t like doctrine at all. I just feel, if we want to consider ourselves Christian, all we need to do is believe in Jesus, love God, love our neighbor as ourselves (I mean actually), and don’t hurt and judge people. Sorry all you doctrine people, I’m sure in my own mind it’s as simple as that. But I find that few people actually do this. It is MY code for living.”
