The Anti-Beatitudes

1Now when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, 2and he began to teach them saying:
3″Cursed are the haughty in spirit,
for they shall be denied the kingdom of heaven.
4 Cursed are those who delight in the suffering of others,
for they will be tormented.
5 Cursed are the arrogant,
for they will be robbed of the earth.
6 Cursed are those who hunger and thirst for selfishness gain,
for they will be emptied.
7 Cursed are the violent,
for no mercy will be shown to them.
8 Cursed are those whose hearts are hardened,
for God will not know them in the end.
9 Cursed are the warmongers,
for they will be called sons of Satan.
10Cursed are those who persecute and hate their neighbor,
for theirs is a life of bitterness, and the way of death.
11″Cursed are you when you ignore me, reject Me, and do all kinds of evil toward your neighbor in My name. 12 Despair and be sad, because great is your reward in hell, for in the same way they persecuted the One who came before you, so you ignore Me.
