Do you profess to be a disciple of Jesus? Are you angry with your spouse or someone for no reason? Do you call them idiots, fools or curse at them? This is what Jesus taught His disciples:
- Jesus taught that if YOU are angry with someone (I think that includes your spouse), YOU shall be in danger of judgement!
- Jesus taught that if YOU call someone (again I think that includes your spouse) an IDIOT (Raca) YOU shall be in danger of the council!
- Finally, Jesus taught that if YOU call someone (and again I think that includes your spouse) a “FOOL” (curse), YOU shall be in danger of HELL FIRE!
The Bible says, “But I (Jesus) say, if you are even angry with someone, you are subject to judgment! If you call someone an idiot (Raca), you are in danger of being brought before the court. And if you curse someone (fool), you are in danger of the fires of hell.” (Matthew 5:22 NLT) (Matthew 5:22 NKJV)
Don’t justify the use of the word “idiot” or “fool”. Jesus compared hating to murder and you and I know that no murderer will enter Heaven. If you are divorcing your spouse what are you doing, loving or hating? This is a warning from our Lord Jesus Christ. Take heed!
