As a Christian woman myself, it made me cringe to see Margarette and her friends act so mean to Jeanne and "in Jesus' Name". She seemed to use Jesus as a weapon. No wonder a lot of people think Christians are hypocritical and judgmental people. We are called to LOVE, NOT to judge!!
I hope that Margarette is able to someday understand that Christ didn't come here to condemn, but to love. As Christians and Christ in us, we are given the amazing opportunity to show the love of Jesus through our compassion and understanding toward others! We don't have to agree or take part in what others do if it is against what we stand for as Christians. But just as we take a stand against killing or abuse, we have to be just as appalled by not being compassionate, or not being loving to others.
As much as Margarette seems to read the Bible, I think she needs to revisit what the Bible says about the definition of love. Was she kind, patient, forgiving, compassionate, not easily angered? Uh, no. Did she protect, trust, hope, and preserve the relationships in her life? Not really. Maybe she forgot to read the New Testament and grace side of the Bible, and just stuck to the Old Testament and condemnation that was in place before Christ came.
She was a bit of a dramatic hateful mess - always wanting her own way at the cost of everyone's feelings. And to say that people who don't believe in Jesus are not allowed in her home... really?! That doesn't sound Christlike to me.
I pray that her children and grandchild don't continue this legacy of judgment and pain. There is so much more that God wants for us.
