On shame and sending messages from God

Most of my blogger friends and readers may have observed that I normally don’t write about my faith and religion. I love God so dearly and I am not at all ashamed of my faith and religion no matter what other people say. My relationship with God is my private matter and it will remain that way until the end of time.

Why am writing about this? It has something to do with all the messages we have received about the so-called messages from God. It has nothing to do with the people sending the messages but the people who originally sent the messages and according to them from God and being passed on from one person to another in different forms like via email or via social media.

I noticed something and usually at the end of the messages, and I just don’t agree with it.

This is not complete but normally it says or something like this:

Please do not be ashamed to follow the instruction. “If you are ashamed of me, I will be ashamed of you before my Father!” If you are not ashamed, send this message, only if you believe.

What was the person thinking when writing this, “I will be ashamed of you before my Father!”?

May I remind everyone that God is not judgmental and never will be. He will never judge us. He will never be ashamed of us before our Father no matter what we do. Even if we will be ashamed of our faith in God, he will never, never be ashamed of us, not to anyone and especially not to our Father.

Sometimes I send the messages back to the one who sent me and sometimes I just ignore it but it doesn’t mean that I am ashamed of God, of my faith and religion. What I do is, I just remove the unnecessary phrases and send the core of the messages. I have written about three things I will never let go and faith in God is one of them. But I was always shocked reading those messages with a phrase or sentence like the one I mentioned. It is just so unreal.

The messages are definitely good but I normally do not send this kind of messages because it is not just true that God will be ashamed of us before our Father. He will always love us no matter what we do in this world. He will never stop loving us even if we make mistakes a million times. He will always forgive us.

In my case, there were a lot of times that I made mistakes and will still make mistakes and may be my faith was tested already and I was not probably able to explain it properly. I am not an all-knowing person about religion but I know that I love God and I have nothing to prove to anyone about anything. I am not a martyr but God will still and will always love me for what I am, that I know.

I am not even going to argue with anyone about my faith, about my religion, not to to those who also have faith, not to those who are agnostics, and not to those who are atheists. My relationship with God is my private matter alone. It is not anyone’s concern.

So to anyone who are sending these messages, consider what you are trying to say. Do you really think God will be ashamed of us before our Father because I believe that it is not just true. To those who are writing this kind of things, consider first what you are writing before you send one.

Peace to everyone! Peace on earth! Have a great weekend to all of you!
