The religious bully is one who is self-righteous. He or she feels morally superior above others. This is an individual who doesn’t feel guilt when having committed a sinful act. They sit in the seat of judgment against others according to their religious beliefs. They use certain biblical words to defend their position based on the way they believe things should be, that are contrary to common sense.
The religious bully is a danger to him or her own selves, and to others, because they place themselves in a position that they feel is godlike, and therefore, they are disconnected to God.
When the religious bullies start toting bibles and placing themselves in leadership positions, they become a powerful and evil force against society that is very dangerous, because out of their organizations hatemongers are reproduced. They don’t like anyone who disagrees with their philosophy.
The hatemongers desire is to destroy, and to harm those who they feel is unclean, or unworthy to exist.
The danger to these particular individuals and to others; they’re tuned in to a spirit that they believe is God, who is speaking to them and telling them the right things to do. Whatever they hear, they believe and there is no one who can convince their leader nor their followers that they are wrong..
What the Bible Says:
For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone that believeth.
Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? And in thy name have cast out devils? And in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: Matthew 5:22
