BULLYING IS A SIN

And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but must be kind to everyone… (2 Timothy 2:24)

Bullying is a sin; the devil is a bully, bullies desire to be like the devil.

The heart of the bully relies on others to back him up in his wicked assault on kind, innocent people.

The bully is someone who enjoys causing others pain and anguish. He does not love kindness but rather hostility.

Proverbs 6:16-19 says: “There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: proud eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.”

These verses speak about the core of the bully’s heart since the bully is proud, he will lie and at times runs to shed blood. He most definitely devises wicked plans and runs swiftly to do his evil works.  The bully is proud and mean; he or she finds great satisfaction in ridiculing and hurting other people. That is why he keeps bullying.  It is a power trip for him and he doesn’t realize that he is doing what the devil wants; God hates the things that the bully does.

Bullying causes severe physical, psychological, and emotional trauma to victims. As parents, we need to stand up for our kids and do whatever we can to stop others from making victims of our children.

When we compare and contrast the heart of the bully versus the heart of the Christian we see the following:

THE BULLY’S HEART

THE CHRISTIAN’S HEART

Bullies are very proud True Christians are humble
They seeks power They seek to serve God
They want dominance Wants to obey God
Plans wicked schemes Plans acts of kindness
Acts out in rage Acts out in love
Enjoys inflicting pain on others Enjoys helping others
Loves hatred and injustice Loves justice
Relies on others to back him up Needs no one but God
Is motivated by self-dominance Is motivated to encourage and lift others up

 

Bullies always try to get other people to join them in hurting and ridiculing someone who has a kind, gentle, loving spirit.

CONCLUSION

The main thing is that at the heart of the matter bullies only focus on their own pride, ego and meanness at the cost of others. This is exactly the way that the devil lives and he influences and even possesses people who are bullies. He focuses only on his own wicked schemes ridiculing and destructing anyone that he can.

David in the Bible was bullied and prayed: “Teach me thy way, O Lord, and lead me in the right path, because my enemies are waiting for me. Deliver me and do not let me fall into their hands. For they accuse me of things I’ve never done; with every breath they threaten me with violence.” (Psalm 27:11-12)

The Bible also tells us that the hypocrite destroys his neighbor with his mouth. (Proverbs 11:9)
