Hogs and Hypocrites

A Christian once visited a farmer to talk to him about Christ. "I wouldn't come to church up there." the farmer said. "I know old so and so church goer who claims to be a Christian and So and So who attends church there who claims to be a Christian and they don't live any differently from me. I'm as good as they are."

Everywhere the farmer went he told about the hypocrites in that Church. Months passed and the Christian brother went to see the farmer again.

"I want to buy a hog", said the Christian. The farmer showed all his best hogs to him. Then they came to the runt. "I believe I will take that one" the, Christian said. BUT you don't want that one. He's the worst runt to the litter. "I sure do" said the Christian. So they loaded the runt in the truck. "Now," said the Christian "what if I take this pig here from your farm & ride all over this area telling folks that this is the kind of hogs you raise?"

"That's not fair!" the farmer exclaimed. "I have some nice hogs and you want to show people that runt?!"

To which the Christian replied, "If it's fair for the church it's fair for the hogs!"

We are guilty of this many times ourselves and are like the world when it comes to our judging the Church, aren't we. As in the above story so aptly illustrates how we and people of the world misjudge the church by pointing to the hypocrites and acting as if all Christians are like them. We are quick in doing this. But do we not sometimes do the same things to one another. When you see only the weaknesses in the life of your Christian brethren and fail to see their good points, are you not doing the same thing the world does?

So then, go out and do right. Live right. Sin not...and above all, be not your brother's Judge.
Leave the judging to our Lord!

"Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful. Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."
Luke 6:36-38 NIV
