........I pity him too! and Liam and Hojo.<quoted text>
To me what he is attempting is an occupational hazard.....I will not give him control over me,
that he would make me be angry .
If he made me angry,,,, he would be in control...and I would be out of control
He has never been, seen, heard or experienced what I have been privileged to be involved in
In the divine manifestations of God's power. in my life time.
I rather pity him....
I don't expect a person that is bereft of a personal knowledge (THAT COMES BY A BORN AGAIN RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD,) to act as if he understands SPIRITUAL THINGS....
He is spiritually dead ...as is most Roman Catholics.
Being carnally minded.... He minds the things of the flesh
The Bible says..
Rom 8:5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
Rom 8:6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
Rom 8:7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
Rom 8:8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
Rom 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
Rom 8:10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of
sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
Rom 8:11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
Rom 8:12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.
Rom 8:13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
Rom 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
......sad very sad.
