Misunderstood, But Not Forgotten -Part Three

~Thirdly, our observation is concerning the mix up of happiness with superiority.

As a follower of Christ, joy comes naturally. Not saying that we are always that way; we are still in this world of sin after all. But, being joyful is easier knowing Christ.

Often people mistake that happiness for superiority. Like we Christians are too big for our britches.

However, if someone is truly following Christ and strives to please Him, that is a completely false conclusion. Why? Because following Jesus means to follow His example as well as all of God’s Word, and it clearly tells us that all men are equal.

Acts 17:26, “And hath made of one blood all nations of men...”

Not to mention it commands us to love our neighbor as ourselves -Leviticus 19:18 as well as scattered throughout the New Testament. And even shows us who our neighbors are -John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

So, to assume something like this completely goes against everything a Christian stands for in the first place! How then is it logical to decide that just because someone seems happy, they think they are better than you?

Please, do not accuse Christians without solid reason to. Just because you might not have what we do, that doesn’t give you sufficient reason to point a finger.
