Nowadays, in our modern world is very fashionable to be positive and through “feeling good statements”. If all of them would be true, why 60% of populations are chronically depressed? Why there is a 54% rate of divorce? Why we have 300% increases in autistic spectrum disorders in children? Why emotional and spiritual poverty overruns God’s grace? Some of those positive people are sincere and honest but some of them just as fake as lies. I often wonder why there are the very same people with so say “positive mental attitude” are taking anti-depressants like Prozac, Diazepam, Zoloft, just to mention few. Where does their happiness come from? Is that real? How do their lives look like where no one is watching?
I have not so far met a critical and judgmental person in a good health. The reason for this is that critical and judgmental people using this type of behavior as an excuse, FIRST, for themselves NOT to get engaged and NOT TO BE responsible for their life, health and success. Often using those excuses, blaming others, or circumstances around for their losses and failures. The reality is such as critical and judgmental people trying to build their lives on destruction of other people, meanwhile destroying themselves and poisoning not only their own lives but also lives of people around them. The problem though is that some people around critical and judgmental people fall as victims of lies and destruction being led away from responsibilities, success, joy, happiness and finally health. With time, they become presenting happy on the OUTSIDE, and chronically unhappy people on the INSIDE. As a result, this circle of victims and false leaders being frustrated “why God doesn’t provide for them things that were promised in scriptures: health, joy, love, prosperity, greatness, good relationships etc.”
Often critical and judgmental people using their fake positive attitude to capture good people who are physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually at the lowest points of their lives and not equipped for a fight for themselves and as a result fall in that fake positive trap. BE SOBER IN YOUR MIND!
Here is my advice to you: First, do not judge or criticize!
Second, do not respond on judgement in criticism towards yourself or others! The most loving person on the planet is Jesus. He knew there was a time for silence. When Jesus was being ridiculed and prepared for his crucifixion, He was silent. “But Jesus held his peace” (Matt. 26:63). Jesus did not feel obligated to answer critics and judgement. DO NOT FALL IN THE TRAP CRITICISM and JUDGING! Remember why you do what you do!
I know most of us, often, are/were being ridiculed and judged for us having and/or providing chiropractic care. We have been judged and ridiculed for providing a good care for a God’s gift, our bodies. “Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.” 1 Corinthians 6:19-20.
Share your faith with them! If they receive it, great, if they don’t, shake the dust of your feet, and move on. Pray for them. At the end, we are happy for us and sorry for them, they made their choices. That’s all we can do “Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:32.
