About the priest that blackens the destiny of an innocent man


Hello. I am a student at “M. Viteazul” High School in the village Carahasani, Stefan-Voda rayon. We had very good teacher in school. He was superb in his pedagogy and teaching activities. Mr. Sergiu was the most talented teacher in high school. But because he was Jehovah’s witness, he was tried, and he was taken all the documents that would allow him to be a teacher. He was suspected of some things we all know 100% that he did not do (save pornography on his computer) … The problem is that I do not know why, nearly all Orthodox priests have great hatred for other religion people … In our village the priest also wanted to bury an innocent man … I’m less familiar with the Bible (now I am studying it), but I know that there it is surely written to love your neighbor, your enemy. But the priests who have the Bible in front of them, how can they do such bad things, to blacken the destiny of an innocent man?

That is true, God teaches us in the Bible to love our neighbor and to love our enemies. In the famous Sermon on the Mount, Jesus said:

You have heard that it was said, ‘YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? If you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect. (Matthew 5:43-48)(NASB)

Those who are driven and controlled by hatred in their attitude and actions have not known God, even if they became a part of the clergy:

Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love. (1 John 4:7-8)(NASB)

It was committed a crime when this man was tried only because of his religion. It is true that the sect “Jehovah’s Witnesses’ teachings are heretical because they deny the divinity of Jesus Christ, without which our salvation is not possible for anyone. But nobody has the right to chase this man or others and to dismiss them on the grounds of faith, as long as their religion does not hurt other people.

If someone has worked with craft and falsely accused the man, he will draw condemnation and punishment from God that said:

He who digs a pit will fall into it, and he who rolls a stone, it will come back on him. (Proverbs 26:27)

It is also relevant in this case Psalm 52

Why do you boast in evil, O mighty man? The lovingkindness of God endures all day long. Your tongue devises destruction, like a sharp razor, O worker of deceit. You love evil more than good, Falsehood more than speaking what is right. Selah. You love all words that devour, O deceitful tongue. But God will break you down forever; He will snatch you up and tear you away from your tent, and uproot you from the land of the living. Selah. The righteous will see and fear, and will laugh at him, saying, “Behold, the man who would not make God his refuge,
but trusted in the abundance of his riches and was strong in his evil desire.” But as for me, I am like a green olive tree in the house of God; I trust in the lovingkindness of God forever and ever. I will give You thanks forever, because You have done it, and I will wait on Your name, for it is good, in the presence of Your godly ones. (Psalms 52:1-9)(NASB)

And if the teacher really brought to school and exposed the children to pornographic movies or threat to access such films, then the deed of those who did not allow him to remain in school is entitled.
