Cool Bullied to death? What the Bible says about bullying - 04-25-2010, 12:02 AM

Due to my maid having to recover from a non-workplace, non-disciplining-related injury, I have taken a trip to the supermarket. Things have changed a lot since the last time I went to one - for a start there are all sorts of strange ethnic food, from turkish delight to what must have been 4 different diameters of spagetti.

But the change that shocked me the most was the magazines you see while waiting in line. Where we used to be comforted by Weekly World News reporting the latest discovery of Noah's Ark, or the National Enquirer's updates on the exact date of the Rapture, instead I was assaulted by the sight of Michelle Obongo, Seventeen Magazine (I would sooner let my daughter read the Dutch one!) and a People Magazine headline reading "BULLIED TO DEATH?" and a picture of your typical teen harlot.

Bullied to death? I'm assuming she committed suicide - self-murder. Why so much sympathy for a murderess, People Magazine?

I can see how we could call a suicide bomber Islam-ed to death, but bullied to death? Really?

Sure they weren't magazined to death? Magazines reward suicidal teens by giving them the publicity they want, and by shaming their enemies - it's no different from saying "I'll pay your family if you kill youself", which is what terror recruiters do.

I can see emos using this as blackmail: "give me what I want or I'll kill myself, and blame you in the suicide note. Then you'll be shamed by People Magazine and your life will be ruined." Maybe these so called "bullies" are simply non-suicidal people that she didn't like?

Let's take a look about what God says about bullying. (I'm quoting the NIV because this article is aimed at teen readers.)

First of all, God orders us to submit to EVERY authority, good, bad, or ugly, legitimate or otherwise:

13 Submit yourselves for the Lord's sake to every authority instituted among men: whether to the king, as the supreme authority, 14or to governors, who are sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to commend those who do right. - 1 Peter 2:13-14 (KJV Here)

1 Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. 2Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. 3For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and he will commend you. - Romans 13:1-3 (KJV Here)

Bullies have power because God gave them that power as part of his Divine Plan. To rebel against a bully is to rebel against God.

Also, don't forget that being a bully isn't as easy as it looks. Next time they come for their cut of the lunch money, try to make things easier for them:

17 Obey your leaders and submit to their authority. They keep watch over you as men who must give an account. Obey them so that their work will be a joy, not a burden, for that would be of no advantage to you. - Hebrews 13:17 (KJV Here)

Even if you're literally a slave, you're to treat your owner as if he is Jesus Christ himself:

5 Slaves, obey your earthly masters with respect and fear, and with sincerity of heart, just as you would obey Christ. 6Obey them not only to win their favor when their eye is on you, but like slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from your heart. 7Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men - Ephesians 6:5-7 (KJV Here)

If a bully beats you up, it's because God chose the bully's side in the battle. David beat Goliath with God's help and so could you - if God wanted you to win. If Goliath beat you up, it's because God wanted him to.

The Bible is filled with Battles, from Moses vs the Egyptians, to Jericho(1) , to the dragon that invades heaven in the Book of Revelations(2) . Every time, God chooses the winner, either as a blessing to His Chosen People, or to punish us for straying from His path.

So, the next time a bully comes for your lunch money, as yourself this: "Why is God punishing me by sending His ordained authority against me? What can I do to be more meek, more humble, more pleasing to EVERY authority God has placed in power?"

Footnotes:

1. Then the LORD said to Joshua, "See, I have delivered Jericho into your hands, along with its king and its fighting men....21 They devoted the city to the LORD and destroyed with the sword every living thing in it—men and women, young and old, cattle, sheep and donkeys - Joshua:2-21 (KJV Here)

2. 3 Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on his heads. 4His tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. - Revelation 12:3-4 (KJV Here)

3. Update: other republicans agree that bulliest are by their nature conservatives, and therefore must be supported.

Remember, God may have ordained you with a position of authority IN THIS LIFE, but you won't get to play football in HELL.

You've already tasted the fruits that Jesus can bestow, and who knows what heights of power you will gain as a Christian? So let's get you repenting, accepting Jesus, and tithing to His church. VISA, Mastercard, or American Express?

I dont think i will go to hell. I go to church and i do nothing wrong. All i did wrong is what most of you male member did before, only difference, im not ready to be an ex masturbater pretty soon or maybe never. If i remember, i may get baptize at any age. So il make sure to do it before death and during that period, il also do my best to be an ex mastubater before death.

I'm sure all the unconcieved children who have died sticky deaths on your kleenex will agree you do nothing wrong.

So you've got your death all schedualed? Right between "9:30 AM: almost dodge truck" and "9:31AM: twitch a little bit while bystanders stare in shock"?

Look, The fact that you can cram a minor-niner into his locker after giving him a wedgie is all fine and good, but Jesus has bigger plans for you. So wash the "moisterizing lotion" off your hands, get on your knees, and REPENT before the LORD.

Back when I was in school if I came home whining about bullies I'd be smacked by my father and told to toughen up.

Maybe it's better if these kids off themselves, because if they can't handle school they sure as heck are not going to make it in the real world. Where do they think the bullies go after graduation?
