Remember the lady that only gave her little penny and the Lord said she gave more than you all. Attending church service on Sundays is likened to consulting an oracle. We must not divorce our spiritual life from our personal life or from our work life. I know like all of you here I have been mistreated, rejected, abused verbally, cheated and robbed also by fellow saints, and people of the world too and have become sad, angry, confused and all, but that does not justify me to run away from Pappa God because of what others did. There is no religious litmus test for elected ofice,but there should be. We are all different, but we are necessary parts of the whole. Even Jews denounced Christ as the true son of god and Christ was rejected by them.
Do they not care about children at all? I am in the same boat have been rejected by the church of England because I was relucted to love a fellow beliver because he was pushing me to go to him. The word Christian connotes one who practices the commandments of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus did say that there would be tares mixed with the wheat untill He comes to judge and put away sin for good but until then we have to discern evil among us and cast it out for our own safety. We are at the last of last hours to win back the lost for Christ even our fellow brothers and sisters whose eyes and ears that has been blinded not to hear and see. I for one, would not know a poisonous snake from a non-poisonous snake, so I might kill a snake if I feel threatened, but I would not enjoy doing so.
Saith the Lord: or what is the place of my rest? I refused it, and for 38 years I suffered — one day Jesus entered my car as I was driving. What are new Christians or seasoned Christians supposed to think? Under Romanic law in Lousiana, parish and political subdivisions coincide: parishes for example, the Parish of New Orleans take the place of county and county subdivisions. Liberals in our government has taking up arms against Christianity. One thought I have on this matter is that we are all on separate journeys. God may have you leave an unrepentant church; anyone that enjoys hurting someone is not hearing from God. Do they think God dwells there? Sadly too many churchgoers have gotten the wrong ideas about Christianity and their behavior is shameful! Live peaceably with all men. Minister to any person in lack whenever you are able.
If you re-read my posts I am sure you will see your assumptions are in error. People that love God and are sincere in our love for God and others, no we are not perfect and our actions will not always reflect love, we all have our bad days. Now I do, at least a little bit more. I follow ,or at least try hard, to follow the examples of Jesus with my conduct. Church is not a place you go to for a couple hours on Sunday morning. Lecturing and wagging their fingers. Matthew 16 v 24 to 27, etc.
We will not be judged by the Golden Rule however man will be judged by his actions upon what he does and does not do. Many Christians would do well to stop believing this, they might inflict less harm. So, instead of singing louder to drown out the cries of the hurting, maybe we allow those cries to transform what we sing and how we sing. Why not look to themselves. Gracias for all gifts, both large and small. Most born agains I have met who say they have a personal relationship with God,and ask him what to do all the time,usually get exactly the answer they want to hear every single time.
I do not on the other hand dissuade anyone from building houses. The people of God throughout the centuries have been trying to pull this one off. God loved the world so much that he sent his only son into the world to bring redemption. I never take any credit for what God has given me. The watching world sees our blatant hypocrisy and criticizes us in return for our unjustified criticism of them.
Then there is the critical, judgmental, legalistic attitude so often taught and practiced in churches. No sexual abuse, just to be clear about that. They believe that being a Christian gives the lease to basically do whatever they want, say whatever they want, treat people whatever they want. You can contact me at here. This is what needs to change and why people need to be named for their actions. Did my statements sound like a crazy or vengeful person made them? Keep loving God and believing in the sacrifice of Christ.
I would like to point out that nobody, even christians dont know what happens to us after we die. He said His eye is even on the sparrows. That new Life is Jesus working in and through us. Constitutionally, our government cannot create a state religion or interfere in the inner workings of the churches. Those who practice my teachings are the true baptized members. What else was I morally compelled to do? Yes, he also has a plan for our life and will gain the advantage when we do not use the weapons of our warfare, which are unceasing prayer, worship and the word of God both as an offensive and defensive weapon. Again, Thanks for writing… Sincerely, Catherine Todd Catherine, I read the conversation from the start and you did not perceive wrongly from my perspective how you were being responded to.
Love in Christ I take it as a personal challenge. We can blame it on secular culture. He reconciled us to Pappa God, for us to stand in front of God without a sense of guilt and condemnation. And even right after church some of these people are mean and selfish. That is what my comment was about. Your site has helped me in more ways than one, and I thank you for it. Or is it just the use of real names, so that the wrong-doer is pointed out? Oh, that we would all sincerely follow the teachings of Jesus.
