BECAUSE I CARE - A LOT.<quoted text> As I've said to you once before Le le, I know that this may sound like one of those insults, but what I am going to say is going to be said from honest conviction right I'm right or wrong,....
SPRING BOARD for all of us that let PRIDE or TEMPORARY ANGER CLOUD OUR MISSION. POSTING publicly because I have already approached this topic privately to people and with in this group of past posters...and should be posted with our new group of non Christians too--- THEY KNOW how we are supposed to behave~
Though none of us will agree on all points-
one point that LeLe makes consistantly is that we are supposed to be beyond the urges to use personal insult and demeaning language toward others. It is not called "tough love" it IS called alienating people
"IN THE NAME OF JESUS".
* These are but 2 of the scriptures I base my interference on- because I HONOR His word regarding our 'mission' on earth.
NOT because I think that I am better than anyone- I am simply ON this calling.
*2 Timothy 2:14 Keep reminding Gods people of these things.
Warn them before God against quarreling about words; it is of no value, and only ruins those who listen. 15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who
does not need
to be ashamed
and who correctly
handles the word of truth.
16 Avoid godless chatter,
because those who indulge in it
* 2 Timothy 3:16-17, "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching,
correcting and training in righteousness,
17so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped
for every good work."
Furthur scriptural proof that we are Gods worse enemy when we do not do it His way- with LOVE and IN The NAME of Jesus~ I ask you to read and pray on these verses.
Ephesians 4:29 Do not let any unwholesome
come out of your mouths,
but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.
1 Thessalonians 5:11 Therefore encourage
and build each other up...
Ephesians 5:4 Nor should there be obscenity,
or coarse joking,
which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving.
Colossians 3:8 But now you must also
rid yourselves of all such things as these:
and filthy language from your lips.
To come into topix every day and respond to others in LESS than a
-LOVE GOD, LOVE the sinner- way makes us
guilty of HORRIBLE sin.
To ignore each others counsel on this matter is tragic for the Body of Christ and the soul OF the Christian who has un-repented sin-- tragic for those who may be seeking to FEEL The HOLY SPIRIT enter their hearts WHO WOULD WANT WHAT we have ??)c:
Matthew 12:33 Make a tree good and its fruit will be good,
or make a tree bad and its fruit will be bad,
for a tree is recognized by its fruit.
34 You brood of vipers,
how can you who are evil say anything good?
For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.
35 A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him, and
an evil man brings evil things out of the evil
stored up in him.
36 But I tell you that everyone
will have to give account on the day of judgment
for every empty word they have spoken.
37 For by your words you will be acquitted,
and by your words you will be condemned.
