Until You Walk That Mile Yourself...

It's been distressing, even disturbing, reading some of the judgments ofreactions to the forced conversion and gunpoint statements of Steven Centanni and Olaf Wiig while they were in captivity.

This piece of counterjudgment seems about right to me.

For the Christians who have crossed the line from thoughtful, humble ruminating about what they themselves might do in Centanni's and Wiig's places into condemnation, I have this for you:

Matthew 7:1

As for the counter-verses you might wish to offer, having to do with what God or Jesus might think of such conversions? Those have to do with what they might or might not think or do--their role, not yours.

Talk about an embarrassment.
