Actor Nathanial Buzolic Encourages Followers to ‘Return to Christ-Centered Love Today’

By Movieguide® Contributor

THE ORIGINALS star Nathaniel Buzolic recently shared his thoughts on loving one another and pointed to God’s word as our example in a detailed Instagram post. 

The caption reads: 

The Christian community (particularly on Social media) is fast becoming a fig tree that has gone completely rotten – producing bad, to no fruit at all.

Our love for one another has grown cold..

I’m not surprised by this since Christ did give us a NEW COMMANDMENT to love one another as he loved us – if God’s First Nation failed to live out the Torah often, its not surprising that we the gentiles would fail our task of radically loving our community as our benchmark. 

Yeshua also mentioned the reality of our loveless approach coming in the final days before His ultimate return. This coldness of love Has been put on display often by the copious amounts of Criticisms made by “Christians” towards fellow Christians.

My thought is this; 

If your primary contribution to the kingdom of God is telling someone else how they should correctly live, Without living it out with them – You have switched over to full blown Pharisee mode.

He continued to encourage his followers to “correct, teach & train our fellow Christians” and to refrain from “tearing down other believers.”

The caption continued: 

The greatest mistake the Pharisees of Yeshua’s time made was assuming things about people they knew not or cared not to truly know, in addition to this they would hold a higher standard of living to others more then how they were willing to live out themselves.

First;

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile. For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed—a righteousness that is from faith to faith, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.

‭‭Romans‬ ‭1:16-17

It would serve many Christians well to read these words carefully & establish what this looks like practically.

Second return to Christ centered love today.

Buzolic is prolific about his faith on social media, often posting devotionals like this one to encourage his fellow believers and inspire them to commit to Christ.
