Body Shamers and Other Internet Bullies

10 Feb

We heard about how Lady Gaga suffered from internet bullies after her Super Bowl appearance.  There is nothing biblical about attacking people via protection of anonymity.  The Bible verse ‘remove the beams from your own eyes ‘ comes to mind as does ‘do not judge’. Attacking people hiding behind the keyboard is not Christian and it is most likely sin and God does not give permission to his followers to sin, even if you do not like the person or the way they look.

God wants his followers to be obedient even when their identity is protected. What you think may be the right thing to do is probably not as you need to check to see where your thoughts are coming from and if they would be approved of God. There are many passages of scripture that will guide you in this,including the ones from the epistles of peter which says to add spiritual virtues to other existing spiritual virtues.

Living the Christian life is done at all times, not when we are in public and people will know who we are.

    We have obviously had a number of disagreements, but on this I agree – body shaming is a horrible act.

    A good message. I would like to add that we all struggle against sins. We often condemn others while we commit the same sins whether in thought, word or deed. We should fight to love one another rather than hate, and it’s very difficult.

    I get tired of seeing so many internet articles on how anonymous attack anyone they do not like or do not meet their personal criteria. No one is to meet subjective human standards but God’s ultimate standard and we should be applying the latter to our lives first before trying to apply it to others.
