Like many groups, I suspect, for every loud, judgmental, prideful person proclaiming their own righteousness, there are 2 or 3 others quietly helping the needy, admitting their own faults and loving unconditionally. You know, actually following the teachings of Christ.

If only the OP possessed even a tiny particle of the generosity of spirit and kindness of the Officer in question and even a crumb of his grace wouldn't this thread be a lot less depressing, or is it just me ?

Is anyone feeling quite as nauseated by the opportunistic, aggressive drivel spewed and the emotional intelligence of a petulant toddler, of a poster exhibiting such pathological animosity and sheer spite towards other human beings? The mind boggles.


The best and the worst of humanity in one neat little package and thread. I suppose the contrast is an enlightening one and shows us the excesses of a fevered imagination, bordering on paranoia...

The "what to look up to" and "what to despise" all under one roof. The good and the bad. Beauty and the Beast. Morality and lack of therein all encompassed in a few telling lines. How apt I suppose.

There is a certain poetry amidst the putrescence of the OP's disturbing rants. A self revealing post which can but make you realise the moral abyss some people revel in.

I applaud this action from this officer. Karma will come back to him in a good way for doing this.

Probably a member of the police officer's union to boot!

And to add, the person who took the picture was on their way over to help the man, but the officer arrived first. Doubly inspiring.

Obviously you didn't read the post. And you have a conspicuous lack of understanding and knowledge of Christianity. Your response is the evidence.

This scenario is irrelevant to my statements. Christians do this sort of thing all across the country and all across the world, daily, and most could care less who saw it or who acknowledges it. The point is that no "viral video" is needed, expected, or wanted, just as i'm sure this officer didn't want or need it, either.

Exactly. Someone as obviously "lost" as that poster wouldn't have a clue about what you're referring to.

Not really...some people thinks that God for instance rewards people for their good deeds. That is not always the case. Some think that Christians only believe in God because they can cut a deal with God by being good and that gets them into heaven...God does not negotiate. The "karma" - you can be a fine person all of your life and never be rewarded- it is a cruel universe. When you love do not expect to be loved back- When you give do not expect to get...give love and expect nothing in return...It is like the sad state of romance...Young people who are in love are surprised to find that those they love do not love them...."I love them-of course they must love me"......


The conditions of love are that there are no conditions that include reward...God loves even the lowest of the low and is never thanked. This cop was showing a thing called GRACE...."THE UNDESERVED MERCY OF GOD"


To be god like you must grant love to those you do not even like- to those that do not deserve it. It is about the noble mind...Nobility translated meant generous. That you as a little g god generate power to all- that is love and that is respect...This cop sounds like a wise person. He showed grace- Thank God..that the NYPD has such people...fortunate New York.
