Jesus and the sinners

As many of you know We are being persecuted for our faith in Christianity and for raising our voice against the cruel and those in power.

We were kept in detention and deprived of all we had including our passports. We have spent 1 long year on the run. Separated from our mother we continue to live in extreme fear.
We kept on begging UNHCR and the whole world to protect us as we are the victim of people in authority.
We wrote to many Christian organizations including Human rights no help was extended.

In a hyper desperate attempt to get help I cut myself in a live You tube video as a protest against our persecution…. 
I received loads of messages condemning me and calling me a sinner. “You are out from Christianity” many told me.
I wonder at the double standard of the West.
What about your teenage daughters?  Who leave the house to live with a boyfriend and get pregnant? Is it allowed to have children out of the bond of marriage in Christianity?

Our problem is we judge ourselves by our ideas and others by their deeds. Its so easy to have beautiful ideas but difficult to face life when it turns on you.
Let’s see What Bible says,

Matthew 7
7‘Do not judge, so that you may not be judged. 2For with the judgement you make you will be judged, and the measure you give will be the measure you get. 3Why do you see the speck in your neighbour’s* eye, but do not notice the log in your own eye? 4Or how can you say to your neighbour,* “Let me take the speck out of your eye”, while the log is in your own eye?5You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your neighbour’s* eye.

Let me remind You how Lord Jesus even showed mercy to an adulteress woman who was chosen to be stunned by the people.

John 8:1-11
At dawn he appeared again in the temple courts, where all the people gathered around him, and he sat down to teach them. The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group and said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?” They were using this question as a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing him.
But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground.
At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there. 10 Jesus straightened up and asked her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?”
11 “No one, sir,” she said.
“Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.”
Jesus who was never touched by the Satan sat with the sinners and dined with them.
 Matthew 9: 9 - 13; 
9 As Jesus passed on from there, He saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax office. And He said to him, "Follow Me." So he arose and followed Him. 10 Now it happened, as Jesus sat at the table in the house, that behold, many tax collectors and sinners came and sat down with Him and His disciples. 11 And when the Pharisees saw it, they said to His disciples, "Why does your Teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?" 12When Jesus heard that, He said to them, "Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. 13 "But go and learn what this means: 'I desire mercy and not sacrifice.' For I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance." 
That’s not all Jesus Christ was even kind and friendly to the prostitutes. He let them to touch his sacred body and showed kindness to them
According to the New Testament Bible, Jesus did talk to prostitutes. He had compassion on them because they were trapped in sin (in wrongdoing).. He loved all sinners, including prostitutes.
Luke 7:36-50.
36 Then one of the Pharisees asked Him to eat with him. And He went to the Pharisee’s house, and sat down to eat. 37 And behold, a woman in the city who was a sinner, when she knew that Jesussat at the table in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster flask of fragrant oil, 38 and stood at His feet behind Him weeping; and she began to wash His feet with her tears, and wiped them with the hair of her head; and she kissed His feet and anointed them with the fragrant oil. 39 Now when the Pharisee who had invited Him saw this, he spoke to himself, saying, “This Man, if He were a prophet, would know who and what manner of woman this is who is touching Him, for she is a sinner.”
40 And Jesus answered and said to him, “Simon, I have something to say to you.”
So he said, “Teacher, say it.”
41 “There was a certain creditor who had two debtors. One owed five hundred denarii, and the other fifty. 42 And when they had nothing with which to repay, he freely forgave them both. Tell Me, therefore, which of them will love him more?”
43 Simon answered and said, “I suppose the one whom he forgave more.”
And He said to him, “You have rightly judged.” 44 Then He turned to the woman and said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave Me no water for My feet, but she has washed My feet with her tears and wiped them with the hair of her head. 45 You gave Me no kiss, but this woman has not ceased to kiss My feet since the time I came in. 46 You did not anoint My head with oil, but this woman has anointed My feet with fragrant oil.47 Therefore I say to you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven, for she loved much. But to whom little is forgiven, the same loves little.”
48 Then He said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.”
Last but not the least if we don’t try to raise our voice against our powerful enemies one day we will be caught and then nobody would ever know how we were disgraced raped and cut in to pieces.
We must think twice before slandering someone, especially those who are being persecuted like us. We need your love and support not condemnations.
Happy New Year

There is still hope if your loved one is in a comma for years

Woman wakes after 16 years

Patricia Whilte Bull

Patricia White Bull cures touched by Jesus When God wills!

A woman regained full consciousness on Christmas Eve December 1999 after 16 years in a coma.

Patricia White Bull, 42, slipped into a comma while giving birth to her fourth child at a hospital in New Mexico, US.

Since then she has been unable to speak, swallow or move much.

But on Christmas Eve she suddenly snapped back into consciousness, telling staff who were trying to fix her nursing home bed: "Don't do that." 

May this Christmas bring more joy and happiness and many beautiful surprises to everyone and specially to those who have suffered pain.... Love!
