  1. During Jesus walk.....

    During Jesus walk here on earth, who were the individuals he Judged? There is countless scripture of sinners from his disciples to Mary Magdelene, to the lady at the well, to those believed sinners by MAN to even Paul, where Jesus did not judge harshly nor hold their sin against them. Nor did he damn them to hell. He brought, love, mercy, compassion, understanding and The Good News of God and the Kingdom of Heaven. He simply taught of God and from his behaviors and teachings these sinners believed and he sent them off saying sin no more. The only ones he did judge harshly and state they will be damned were the ones who self righteously had no heart, compassion, mercy, understanding or love toward their fellow man, fellow sinner, such as the Pharisees. Judgemental, finger pointers, who taught and thought they knew God and his ways but had no clue and actually were the very sinners God is displeased with. Jesus directly spoke about how individuals that lack true heart are the ones God does not know and they do not know him. We that say, wish and speak of walking in Jesus likeness, really need to make sure we are doing as he did. Minus the Judging, that is his authority alone. God gave that to him.
  2. Why do some professing Christians seem cold?

    Some self identifying Christian's (type 1) love to point out other Christian's errors or even question their validity and claim it's out of love and their duty. Then when other Christians (type 2) state these facts of noticing the behavior of the first type of Christians (type 1), The first type (type 1) go on further to question the second type of Christian I mentioned (type 2). Seems very hypocritical. This is The problem with Christians thinking it's their duty to judge and point out others flaws. They don't want anyone saying or correcting their behavior but it's right for them to do so. This in part is the behavior others see from Christians and may turn away from God and Christianity. Because God's representatives come off as hypocritical and as self righteous. They Act as if they are better than the next sinner, and don't look at or correct themselves. And yes some will question my validity. It wouldn't be the first time. I really don't care, it doesn't change the fact of the Truth. Some on here resort to name calling and insults and as soon as there is a rebuttal or clever response to point out their ill behavior, the initial one who started the name calling is quick to report they are being attacked. The proof is on many of threads. It's not good to turn blinds eye to the truth when oneself is a culprit. Yet it constantly happens. Matthew 7:1-5New King James Version (NKJV) Do Not Judge 7 “Judge not, that you be not judged. 2 For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. 3 And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye? 5 Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye. The OP was not attacking Christians, and those that replied were just stating their experience with similar type Christians (type 1). Their experiences are not invalid nor was it bashing Christianity. It is stating how SOME CHRISTIANS Behave and this behavior looks bad within Christianity and to new comers, non believers or other religions.
  3. Transgender People?

    This would be say the dictionary definition of it. To the person, they feel everything of them mentally, emotionally and truthfully was born in the wrong body. At least from my understanding of it. I know of two but never had an in depth conversation about it So the best person to say would be a Transgender.
  4. Suicide

    You don't know of his heart the way God/Jesus does. He wasn't the devil but the devil did overtake him. He was a theif and Paul was a murder. Paul murdered for years living an unrepentant life. Yet he was chosen ,walked and served as a disciple. Jesus chose him. Yet you condemn Judas, not knowing if Jesus TRULY has. All the more reason why Jesus would forgive Judas because Judas was doing what was predetermined by God to fulfill HIS PURPOSE. I do Jesus says not to judge because my judgement would not be right, yet his is. So I let him judge. He Also taught Love and that God Loves us. So why would I believe he wouldn't love as he says. Nor forgive as he sees fit. Any sinner he wants and any sin he chooses to forgive. Matt 15: 3 3 He answered and said to them, “Why do you also transgress the commandment of God because of your tradition? Matt 15: 8-9 These people draw near to Me with their mouth,And[e] honor Me with their lips,But their heart is far from Me.9 And in vain they worship Me,Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men From the context of Matthew 15, it is clear Jesus/God better understands His word than MAN in his Traditions, Doctrine and Commandments and Jesus does as He Pleases.... as you stated yourself. I believe Jesus can save whomever he wants when he wants and NO MAN, nor book, can tell Him or make Him do otherwise. Sorry if you disagree. It's fine. I do not force my beliefs on anyone.
  5. Suicide

    Sorry I don't mean to side track you. I was just trying to keep up with the thread. I get what you are saying, especially since Judas' betrayal was a predestined act, that he had no control. Jesus saw him as friend and worthy to walk and serve as a disciple, so why wouldn't Jesus save him based on his heart as apposed to a fall/suicide. People speculate that they know God and God's actions but they don't. Jesus said he is not limited to MAN's understanding of doctrine. I believe him.
  6. Suicide

    Thank you!!!! However this scripture about judgement and the day of judgement but it did not mention that one could not repent then. And if God is about saving lives and judging by ones heart, could the judgement at this time be a test of heart? Then after this test he will decide whether one goes to heaven or Hell?
  7. LPTSTR From what you are saying about your disbelief, this might play a part into your unanswered prayers. Not that God is using this as an excuse but as I said earlier, God should be the most important thing. "Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. By focusing on your desire, you are allowing your mind to deviate from God. So the delay is not to punish you but to lead you to strengthen your relationship with him. The negative thoughts play into this also. I find one way to strengthen is to not focus on the negative or unanswered prayers but focus on the many blessings he has given you. Learn to trust him more. As I said in the WAIT he may have lessons for you to learn.

    Thank you!!!
  9. Suicide

    Is there Scripture that says one can not repent during Judgement? This is a serious question. I am not well versed in All Scripture. I am constantly seeking answers. Any info is helpful.
  10. I personally would go to God. He will guide you to his exact answer. Keep your faith in him. Trust in HIM. He has it planned perfectly. There may be lessons in the wait that he must take you through. Focus on your Relationship with him. He should be most important thing then the rest.
  11. Pray! Pray for your wife and also pray "God can you let me know your answer?" Pray for both. I'm just saying his answer may not be an immediate Yes. It might be a not now, Wait. It may be I need you single right now for what I have planned in your life. It may be wait, I have to make her ready for you, as I have to make you ready for her. I'm giving examples, only God can answer you. I'm saying just make sure you aren't set on the immediate Yes, that you miss hearing his Whole answer.
  12. I think Jesus is more concern with your heart and relationship with him, first. Matthew 15:8-9 (NKJV) 8 ‘These people draw near to Me with their mouth, and honor Me with their lips, But their heart is far from Me. 9 And in vain they worship Me, Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men. I'm not saying there is a problem with tradition or ceremonies personally. Just if you lack the RELATIONSHIP, the Tradition/ceremony is pointless. We must remember the RELATIONSHIP is not just for asking (not saying that this is what you do, just making a statement), we must LISTEN CAREFULLY also. We tend to want an immediate Yes and it may not be that simple. Trust God, speak to him openly and Listen openly.
  13. Favoritism

    I've learned that the hard lessons are taught through suffering, unfortunately. Or fortunately: We tend to have a more indept value or meaning when we experience things first hand. A more true value in that relationship with Jesus. Some do not know this difference. They are still lost to this. They know to say the words, but lack that relationship or understanding of how deep it is. If you know this relationship you are Favored. Those that mocked you or abused you, probably have no clue or understanding of this. God could have done the same for HIS SON JESUS. Yet if Jesus' suffering did not occur, we would not know what it is to have a relationship with him. We wouldn't even have the opportunity to get to know him. As Wingnut said your testimony has much POWER and if you had not gone through, you would not have a TRUE testimony. That Powerful testimony! You can help God bring in so many others that are suffering and feel lost, alone and abandoned. I see you as Favored, because despite all the wickedness that was against you, you turning to satanism, you saying you did not really have a relationship with God. HE SAVED YOU. He had a RELATIONSHIP with you. Even when you didn't see it. He never let you go. Satan also tries to keep a hold on us by keeping us in the dark. Think on your past situations, you say God didn't do it, so we know who did and we know who still is trying to keep you in darkness. Negative thoughts, troubles, struggles, darkness. As with JOB Satan set him up to fail, but God in the end had the last say. With us Satan sets us up, but in the end God has the last say. Once again the reason for the suffering, is so we can have a REAL RELATIONSHIP and TESTIMONY so we can help serve God in his Glory. That REAL RELATIONSHIP IS FAVOR, at least to me. I pray God delivers you answers, comfort and continued strength to endure in your journey.
  14. Why do some professing Christians seem cold?

    Exactly, I agree, just as some hide behind the name Christian but commit self righteousness within the church. It is all wrong because the main focus should be God. However MAN falls short and we all are learning to be better. I understand and agree with your points. God should be respected by ALL. In church and out, but we know that is not the case. Each and every person has battles. It is easier to see others than to admit ones own. We all suffer from a bit of self-righteousness. Some a little more than others. We should know better when we become Christians, but we must also remember He does the TRUE teaching. We all learn different and at different times, different lessons. Hopefully when the time of Judgement comes, we are as He intends for us to be.
  15. Why do some professing Christians seem cold?

    Matthew 18:20New International Version (NIV) 20 For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them Good thing is Jesus does not only go to Church.
