As an introduction please read “The Love of the Cat” on another website, published 2013/06/24 at 21:46
“Outsiders who are wealthy or hold high positions in the world must be “love-bombed” all the more. Success with such victims means they might give a lot of money or that their influence might be exploited to the advantage of the group.”
Many years ago, as an innocent onlooker and victim of this “love-bombing”, I could not understand how people who have revival could show such partiality in the way they treat people.
I went to my KSB counsellor and shared my problem with him, referring to James 2:1-4: “My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons. For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment; and ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool: are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts?”
To my surprise the counsellor justified Kwasizabantu Mission’s practice of treating wealthy and influential people better than common people, saying they are merely treating people the way they are used to being treated.
Did the Lord Jesus, when He was on earth, give special treatment to rich and prominent people?
Should we not have the same attitude towards people that He had?
