Yelling “I’m a Victim!”


I am concerned that we have come to a place in our culture where to many people, the facts are irrelevant.

The person to yell loudest about being the victim is often automatically given the public’s sympathy… regardless of reality.

Most folks are afraid of being accused of supporting the oppressor. So they support someone without real information because that person claims to be a victim of injustice. It’s all driven by emotion and fear.

Don’t get me wrong. I know there are many injustices in the world. And I have dedicated my life to helping do away with some of them. It is a passion that Christ has given me.

But until we can discern between real evil and false perceived victimization, we are in trouble.

Stop fearing what others will say or think. Stop diving into the ‘wave’ of endorsements for people in situations you can’t really understand. Your premature action can cause even more harm.

Seek the truth.

When you truly have the reality in sight… take action.

And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (‭John‬ ‭8‬:‭32‬ NLT)

For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline. (‭2 Timothy‬ ‭1‬:‭7‬ NLT)
