Eh! You speak of Respect! Don't you know by your seeking that the God I serve always loves but is no respecter of persons - why then should I not also be no respecter of persons!<quoted text>
With all due respect, if you believe that the truth will set you free, why do you criticize those who seek the truth? It seems that it is not the truth you are looking for but what someone else says is the truth. Open your mind and question your faith. Every religion on earth believes they have the "truth". Ask questions of your preachers. I know that there are parts of your religion you either don't agree with or don't believe. If part of your faith is questionable why not all of it?
You chose to question my conditions of faith but like my Lord the Christ I question if you can answer me what then are your questions based the world or your heart and which tells you of God?
My love in life is to please God and follow Jesus carting my cross! When I do this I will be approached by those of other beliefs and I am thankful that I am Blessed because I have a our Heart. Though God is Good and can handle Pride Himself-as we know what happened to one called the devil when he enjoyed it (if but for a season)!
The Lord my Savior can handle selfishness as you know how the devil handled what he called his in the dessert trying to tempt Jesus (slammed down, you shall not tempt The Lord your God)!
The Holy Spirit can handle that he does handle thankfully to give me peace in him!
And I can handle what makes me tick as I have shown you and am of (God, thanks be to Jesus and the Comforter).
What can you handle? So far, people I have seen opposing Christ can't handle anything but illogical disruption involving worldly ways and evil-and even childish disputing!
Just as we who have accepted love know we were once as such but now would like to steer you out of as we have been brought out of by fellow Christian believers, and Christ who died for us while we were still sinners.
