Mocking "the Other Side"

“You call yourself a Christian,
a follower of My Son who loved all,
who gave His life on the cross
even for My enemies.

You call yourself a Christian,
but you mock political opponents
and joke about them being stupid
and "making their heads explode."

You call yourself a Christian,
but speak in disgust and contempt,
with ridicule and insult,
feeling righteous in your rightness.

You mock liberals and say
that they are "bleeding hearts,"
as if compassion were foolish.
And so you fail to see...

When you mock their heart
you mock My Son's bleeding heart,
the heart that bled for you
and bled for your enemy.

When you mock conservatives
as being completely heartless,
you mock the Creator of their hearts
and make your own hearts hardened.

Whenever you mock
the hearts of others,
you also mock My Son's heart
that loved and died for their hearts.

Some are mistaken in politics;
some are following a bad course;
some are hypocrites;
but some are genuine.

Who are you to judge them all?
Who are you to mock them all?
Who are you to judge their hearts
And say that they're all just evil?

Do not rejoice in hating others!
Do not gloat in calling them stupid!
Do not join in the crowd of those
who ridiculed My Son on the Cross!

For the insults that you give them
have fallen upon My Son,
and the harsh words you speak
are the nails driven into Him.

Choose the way of grace instead.
Choose the way of life.
Stand for justice and truth,
but do not forsake His love.”
