<quoted text>I think 'undeserving' in the context it is used as far as our relationship with God is synonymous with 'grateful'.. Have you ever for example dated a woman that just was the type of person you respect a ton because she excelled in areas you (perjorative sense) did not? Like maybe she is patient and kind to people in general and smoking hot and cool and you think "man dont know what I did to deserve her but I'll take it!" Every man has flaws, we know this whether or not you believe it because of the Bible. Acknowledging that doesnt mean we have to think we are garbage it just means we can be honest with ourselves. It would be hubris and entitlement imo to feel of course we deserved it. Man admitting his creator saving him wasnt anything he could earn as a mortal doesnt mean he cant love himself, it just means hes grateful God did for him what he never could have done for himself and did so cause he loves us.

<quoted text>LOL...first even that answer makes no sense. I know the Bible. What would you loving me have to do with telling perfect gifts are from God? And since your other verses were clear 'attempts' at insults (p.s. you dont know what double-minded means) that was just another swing and miss and then per your M.O. you followed it up with a lie! Take a minute next time and at least read the verses and in context. You are just butchering the Bible. If you love me you will do that
Shame on you skom.I handed you a gift and you ground it under
your feet.Plus you call God a liar when a separate scripture is given you then you turn around and mulipuliate with If I love you
I will do that.Viewing the word of God as a game very shameful of you.You want to correct but refuse correction from others posters
here.You want to tell other what how when where to post from the Bible and how they should think forgetting yourself that they have minds of there own to work with.In short you want to play God here in theses threads and anyone who does not play your game is a fake and a liar and butchers the bible.You report anyone who does not go along with you for removeal for the purpose of domaination.Very Sad indeed skom for you will reap what you sow.Wrong I will not argue with you at all over you stumbling among the thorn of life.
Just my opinion of which I am entitled too.

Either the icon fairy is the same person abusing the Bible is just as ignorant. At 4am it is unlikely there is this much traffic let alone 3 diff people so ignorant of scripture.
James 1:8 was posted
James 1:8
[he is] a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
Let's look in context:
James 1:6
But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.
Jam 1:7
For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord;
James 1:8
[he is] a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
How ignorant does someone have to be to think that verse which was taken out of context as an attempted insult was anywhere close to being used properly?
And this is why the fakes will continue to expose themselves. They are not even educated about the Bible enough to even fake it yet they want you to believe they are believers dedicated to Christ and scripture. The sad yet predictable part will be the few who come along after with not even the slightest idea what they are agreeing about.If people lie their scripture altered, misused, out of context, plagiarized, and misunderstood then by all means continue to be impressed someone can post scripture online. When the false prophets come with their signs and wonders it won't be hard to see why some will be awestruck

Hi Skom.
lil reminds me of the way my sister in law use to be. She was what I like to call a Sunday religious fanatic. On Sunday she'd go to church, act real religious while she was there, and do the church thing for the hour and a half she was that she was there. But the second she walked out the door the real her would return.
She was just like Judas. She'd kiss you on the cheek, tell you she loved you, than the first chance she got she would turn around and stab you in the back. Thank God she has changed some over the years that I've known here. She is some what better at not being like that now. But I still wouldn't trust her as far as I could throw her.
Time for me to call it a night. Have a good one. God bless.

You just keep reinforcing why I believe you to be a fake and a liar. Your intent clearly was to use scripture to insult.You simply made an even poorer choice of scripture on your last attempt then your normally do.Instead of admitting it didn't do what you were looking for it to do, instead you lied and claimed your motive was steeped in love. Anybody reading along can see what your intent was with the scripture you were leaving. And even that scripture started off "don't be deceived". You clearly just didn't read the rest and now got caught lying about your lie

I will let you know when I think because of that I should ignore someone making a mockery of the Bible with their plagiarism while including verses, adding to and taking away from scripture (which next to pissing on the Bible or burning it is about the worst thing you can do) and misusing it to hide your insults.If the verses used were in context and used properly and made a point, even if that was was correction or rebuking...fine. But you just cluelessly root through verses trying to grab the first thing you can use as an insult without even knowing what the verse means or caring enough to look.

So like i said, I'll let you know when my popularity in your view makes me feel like ignoring you desecrate something I hold dear.

You need to apply those comments (gossiping and backbiting) and verses to yourself. Rather than constantly trying to use scripture from God's Word as a weapon to be used against people.

The daily prayers. Repeat after me.

"O Lord our God, hallowed be your holy name, your kingdom come in us, your will be done always, and as it is done in heaven so be it done in earth; give us the bread for every day, and forgive us our sins, as we forgive them that sin against us, and suffer us not to fall into temptations, but deliver us from evil(Satan,Obama and his friends), for you are alone our God, to whom pertains glory and honour for ever."

Gospel of Barnebas
Chapter 73

"Truly I say to you, that if Satan shall try whether you be friends of God; because no one assails his own cities if Satan should have his will over you he would suffer you to glide at your own pleasure; but because he knows that you be enemies to him he will do every violence to make you perish. But fear not you, for he will be against you as a dog that is chained, because God has heard my prayer." John answered: "O master, not only for us, but for them that shall

believe the gospel, tell us how the ancient tempter lays wait for man."

Jesus answered: "In four ways tempts that wicked one. The first is when he tempts by himself, with thoughts. The second is when he tempts with words and deeds by means of his servants; the third is when he tempts with false doctrine; the fourth is when he tempts with false visions. Now how cautious ought men to be, and all the more according as he has in his favour the flesh of man, which loves sin as he who has fever loves water. Truly I say to you, that if a man fear God he shall have victory over all, as says David his prophet: "God shall give his angels charge over you, who shall keep your ways, so that the devil shall not cause you to stumble. A thousand shall fall on your left hand, and ten thousand on your right hand, so that they shall not come near you."

"Furthermore, our God with great love promised to us by the same David to keep us, saying: "I give to you understanding, which shall teach you; and in your ways wherein you shall walk I will cause My eye to rest upon you." "But what shall I say? He has said by Isaiah: "Can a mother forget the child of her womb? But I say to you, that when she forget, I will not forget you." "Tell me, then, who shall fear Satan, having for guard the angels and for protection the living God? Nevertheless, it is necessary, as says the prophet Solomon, that "You, my son, that are come to fear the Lord, prepare your soul for temptations." Truly I say to you, that a man ought to do as the banker who examines money, examining his thoughts, that he sin not against God his creator."

lil trying to use scripture as weapon is so obvious a 10 year old could spot it.

And God's Word is very clear that her adding to and taking away from scripture will carry some sever consequences for her.

Revelation 22:18-19.

18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

I remember 4 years ago when Obama visited Berlin, the city where I was born, holding there a speech during his "yes we can" election compaign, talking about freedom and about the world of tomorrow, acting like a "black messiah", making promises,telling ppl fake doctrines and fake visions and lies. I knew it from the beginning that this guy will destroy america.

Chapter 50

Tell me, O man, you that judge another man, do you not know that all men had their

origin in the same clay? Do you not know that none is good save God alone? wherefore every man is a liar and a sinner. Believe me man, that if you judge others of a fault your own heart has whereof to be judged. Oh, how dangerous it is to judge! oh, how many have perished by their false judgment! Satan judged man to be more vile than himself; therefore he rebelled against God, his creator: whereof he is impenitent, as I have knowledge by speaking with him. Our first parents judged the speech of Satan to be good, therefore they were cast out of paradise, and condemned all their progeny. Truly I say to you, as God lives in whose presence I stand, false judgment is the father of all sins. Forasmuch as none sins without will, and none wills that which he does not know. Woe, therefore, to the sinner who with the judgment judges sin worthy and goodness unworthy, who on that account rejects goodness and chooses sin. Assuredly he shall bear an intolerable punishment when God shall come to judge the world.

Oh, how many have perished through false judgment, and how many ha+ve been near to perishing! Pharaoh judged Moses and the people of Israel to be impious, Saul judged David to be worthy of death, Ahab judged Elijah, Nebuchadnezzar the three children who would not worship their lying gods. The two elders judged Susanna, and all the idolatrous princes judged the prophets. Oh, tremendous judgment of God! the judge perishes, the judged is saved. And wherefore this, O man, if not because [in] rashness they falsely judge the innocent?

How nearly then the good approached to ruin by judging falsely, is shown by the brethren of Joseph, who sold him to the Egyptians, by Aaron and Miriam, sister of Moses, who judged their brother. Three friends of Job ;judged the innocent friend of God, Job. David judged Mephibosheth and Uriah. Cyrus judged Daniel to be meat for the lions; and many others, the which were near to their ruin for this. Therefore I say to you, Judge not and you shall not be judged."

And then, Jesus having finished his speech, many forthwith were converted to repentance, bewailing their sins; and they would fain have forsaken all to go with him. But Jesus said: "Remain in your homes, and forsake sin and serve God with fear, and thus shall you be saved; because I am not come to receive service, but rather to serve." And having said thus, he went out of the synagogue and the city, and retired into the desert to pray, because he loved solitude greatly.

DR can't think that far ahead I don't think.
On the 2010 census blacks made up 12.3 percent of the population. During the 2008 elections they cast 12.1 percent of the votes...not nearly enough to elect a man based on his skin color...not without a lot of help from other people!
Most people are tired of racists and bigots...will it ever end...will we ever see someone for their character and not the color of their skin?

Chapter 148

'Tell me now: the Pharisees of today, are they [really] Pharisees? are they servants of God? Surely not! Yes, and I say to you truly, that there is nothing worse here upon earth than [when] a man covers himself with [the] profession and garb of religion [in order] to cover his wickedness. I will tell you one single example of the Pharisees of old time, in order that you may know the present ones. After the departure of Elijah, because of the great persecution by idolaters, that holy congregation of Pharisees was dispersed. For in that same time of Elijah more than ten thousand prophets who were true Pharisees were slain in one year.

Two Pharisees went into the mountains to dwell there, and one [of them] abode fifteen years knowing nothing of his neighbour, although they were but one hour's journey apart. See then if they were inquisitive! It came to pass that there arose a drought on those mountains, and so both set themselves to search for water, and so they found each other. The more aged [one] said - for it was their custom that the eldest should speak before every other, and they held it a great sin for a young man to speak before an old one - the elder, therefore, said:'Where do you dwell, brother?' He answered, pointing out the dwelling with his finger:'I dwell here'(for they were near to the dwelling of the younger.)

The elder said:'How long [have] you dwelt here, brother?' The younger answered:'Fifteen years.' The elder said:'Perhaps you came [here] when Ahab slew the servants of God?''Even so,' replied the younger. The elder said:'O brother, do you know who is now king of Israel?' The younger answered:'It is God that is King of Israel, for the idolaters are not kings but persecutors of Israel.''It is true,' said the elder, "but I meant to say, who is it that now persecutes Israel?'

The younger answered:'The sins of Israel persecute Israel, because, if they had not sinned,[God] would not have raised the idolatrous princes up against Israel.' Then the elder said:'Who is that infidel prince whom God has sent for the chastisement of Israel?' The younger answered:'How should I know, seeing [that for] these fifteen years I have not seen any man except you, and I do not know how to read so no letters are sent to me?' The elder said:'[But] how new are your sheepskins! Who has given them to you, if you have not seen any man?'

Chapter 118

Then Jesus said: "You speak the truth, for now was Israel desirous to establish the idolatry that they have in their hearts, in holding me for God, many of whom have now despised my teaching, saying that I could make myself lord of all Judea, if I confessed myself to be God, and that I am mad to wish to live in poverty among desert places, and not abide continually among princes in delicate living. Oh hapless man, that prizes the light that is common to flies and ants and despises the light that is common only to angels and prophets and holy friends of God!

If, then, the eye shall not be guarded, O Andrew, I tell you that it is impossible not to fall headlong into lust. Wherefore Jeremiah the prophet, weeping vehemently, said truly: "My eye is a thief that robs my soul." For therefore did David our father pray with greatest longing to God our Lord that he would turn away his eyes in order that he might not behold vanity. For truly everything which has an end is vain. Tell me, then, if one had two pence to buy bread, would he spend it to buy smoke? Assuredly not, seeing that smoke does hurt to the eyes and gives no sustenance to the body. Even so then let man do, for with the outward sight of his eyes and the inward sight of his mind he should seek to know God his creator and the good pleasure of his will, and should not make the creature his end, which causes him to lose the creator.
