Abusers Actions Can't Be Lightly Excused

Abusers Actions Canít Be Lightly Excused

Almost everyone has negatively experienced occasions when someone has, physically or verbally, abused, harassed, controlled or acted in a hostile manner toward them. These abusers may have had unusual power, practiced oppressive manipulation, sworn at you, took advantage of your weaknesses, or made your life like hell.

The abuser possibly thought that he could roughly treat you and easily get away with his actions, especially if he thought no one else knew or cared. After all, the abuser may have been someone to fear or have had an overpowering position.

I recently saw a 1954 film entitled Angels in the Outfield. A baseball team had a coach with a foul mouth and an arrogant attitude. He wouldnít hesitate to beat up anyone who disagreed. His team felt his wrath after each game.

One night after a game, he realized he had lost a signet pin someplace on the field. He walked out to second base on the now empty field to look for the pin. That was when he heard a voice that filled the whole stadium, but only he could hear it. This voice scolded the coach for treating his players and people as he did but said it would help the coach clean up his act and win games as long as he didnít slug someone. If he did, the contract would be broken.

Well, we donít have an overwhelming voice offering to help us straighten up. We do, however, have a God-given conscience that lets us know when we are doing wrong if we will only listen and respond. Instead of abusing others, we need to work on increasing our positive character traits with actions that will assist and benefit others.

Here is something that is tremendously important because it affects every last one of us:

ďFor we will all stand before Godís judgment seat. It is written, says the Lord, every knee will bow before me, every tongue will confess to God. So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God (Romans 14:10-12, NIV).

The apostle Peter warns, ďBut they [you] will have to give account to him who is ready to judge the living and the deadĒ (I Peter 4:5, NIV).

Your corrupt actions cannot be lightly excused. You cannot tell yourself or others that you arenít bad because of what you say or do, or that this is just your nature, just the way you are. Tell that to God when itís your turn to stand before Him.

You never believed in God, you say? Thatís too bad because He will be your judge whether you believe in Him or not. His position has stood for ages; you donít have any say in His judgment on you. Believing in the Son of God and repenting of your hellish ways is necessary. He waits for you to take this action before itís your turn to stand before your judge.
