I am HIV+, and do belong to a church, a wonderful church. My question is about judgement. "Judge not lest yee be judged." Do I have the quote correct, I am pretty sure that I do. I was asked by the lead daycare teacher to fill out a volunteer application, this while at the Pastor's house, with him sitting right there encouraging me to do so, to work with the kids of the church during services, . About a month later, I hadn't heard any sort of response, and then had missed about two weeks of church. Well, when I went back to service, I was approached by(her)with a hug, she proceeded to tell me that I had been denied the position because the Pastor was worried about what the parents would think, because I am HIV+. Mind you, I know that God has other things in store for me, but this has been bothering me tremendously, and I know that it is possibly blocking the Sunlight of the Spirit. I am looking for guidace. Am I wrong?? HELP, PLEASE!!
