God Does Not Take Offense at All

Woman on the cross

A lot of people were offended with the photo above. On a Facebook posting of the photo, a lot of the commenters uttered disgust and even calling undesirable names on the woman.

“Bitch”. “Walang respeto”. “Di ni respeto si God”.

God does not take any offense at all. He did not feel disrespected. He is the author of grace. God is love. Jesus even forgave those who hurt him during his ordeal on a Friday.

The believers may be offended, but not God.

The woman can even sue the photographer for posting a photo of her without permission, especially if her face was visible.

The woman can even sue those who called her names on Facebook for defamation or slander.

Would I do the same as what the woman did on the cross? Maybe.

But I may not do it, out of respect for other people’s belief. Not because I would disrespect God.

  1. If the said woman has a full respect of Roman Catholic’s Doctrine, it would not happen to her. Respito man jud ang importante. You can’t earn respect if you don’t know how to respect others. Bisan ug lahi ang iyang denomination, dili niya na buhaton kay 80% of the population in the Philippines is Catholic. The sacredness of those place vanished. It’s not ordinary tourist spots.

    1. I don’t think it was intention to disrespect the Catholic church. And I don’t see it as a disrespect either.

    2. I see nothing wrong with the photo.
      The cross seen here is just a man made object made of wood.
      I think a lot of us Filipinos have an obsession on worshiping inanimate objects and idols to the extent of attributing these item with “sacredness” and forgetting what’s really important.

      Religion must be personal and not dependent on how popular it is, numbers should not matter.

      It’s unfair that people are so quick to judge the picture. Let those who have are without sin cast the first stone.

          1. I’m not catholic, but that’s not the factor why I wrote the article.

            It’s about God’s grace. God’s grace means he does not take offence too easily.

  2. I’m a catholic but not really religious but I still find the girl’s act to be offending. By the way, she actually cannot sue the photographer who took the photo since it was published as an editorial, meaning it wasn’t put up for commercial use. There is no need to ask for permission if its for non-commercial use.

    1. If it’s true that she cant sue the photographer, I’m sure she can sue the publication.

      I still think she can sue both the photographer or the publication even if it’s not used commercially.
