“The Golden Rule”

In matters of the world today, the Golden Rule is better pronounced, those with the gold make the rules. It’s sad, but true, and not very Christian-like nor Godly. How did this uniting principle, which Jesus taught on the Sermon of the Mount, evolve from “do to unto others what you would have them do to you” to the least respected and most changed scripture in our sovereign nation?

Jesus’s teaching ascribed The Golden Rule during the 16th–17th centuries and appears (though not by that title) in Matthew 7:12 and the Book of Luke:

The Golden Rule verse

Jesus knew mankind was selfish and innately evil (Matthew 7:11, If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!). So, He taught the disciples a standard of treating others the way they would like to be treated, with respect and dignity. His Golden Rule was a positive command to show love proactively, not in the negative light it sheds today. Social media would lead one to believe it means something quite different though – money and power.

My analogy is regardless of which context used, it should always be the Christian’s perfect standard of leadership. It could build relationships and achieve dreams. But we’ve forsaken it under politically induced duress. Many of the infamous believe they feel better in the driver’s seat by playing God and using people as their own sheep on the pretense it deepens their pockets. Where are the morals and integrity of the original Golden Rule? Our society is imploding because of its self-love characteristics, and our leaders twist scripture to justify their own assaults on reality. Long ago, people understood the Bible enough they would recognize when commands, such as the Golden Rule, were used inappropriately but sadly, most are ignorant to it today.

I’ve met nationalities of folks from all corners of the earth. God is in all of us and His love for mankind is still the most powerful force – not money, greed, or hatred. He shall come to our rescue one day and bring shame to the shameless and fortune to the prayerful meek for not one is above His Holy Words. We must love God and be active in loving others as He so commanded. This is the Golden Rule given to the prophets!

One thought on ““The Golden Rule”

  1. In my nation, 80%+ indicating they are Christian, some religiously so, there is violent crime, riots, arson, destruction of trains, schools, hospitals. I wonder where the Bible teaches that or where Jesus is in that. Did His Spirit leave town, handing us over to atheist neo-Marxism? I fear there is no mention of any golden rule.
