The nice thing about being anonymous is: We are all the same. You don't know if someone is old or young, sickly or healthy, male or female, black, brown, yellow or white, or anything else. We are all equal here.
If you are too old, too young, too sickly, or anything else, it is you that should not be here, for your own sake. I do not change because someone who is anonymous to me, makes a claim about themselves. You could very well be a healthy young boy, sitting on your mother's computer, acting out a part.
If you want treated special, stay out of the virtual world; stay off of public forums.
Common curtsey (which is ignored by some here) should prevail from the
one that post,(especially those that suppose to be Christians) and
are supposedly allowing Jesus Christ to represent Himself, to represent
Him self through them.
If their actions are other wise ...IT IS A SURE SIGN THAT THEY ARE HYPOCRITES, AND THEIR CARNAL NATURE IS RULING THEM.
Jas 3:13 Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge, among you? Let him shew, by a good contestation, his work in the meekness of wisdom.
Jas 3:14 But if you have bitter zeal, and there be contention in your hearts: glory not and be not liars against the truth.
Jas 3:15 For this is not wisdom, descending from above: but earthly, sensual, devilish.
Jas 3:16 For where envying and contention is: there is inconstancy and every evil work.
Jas 3:17 But the wisdom that is from above, first indeed is chaste, then peaceable, modest, easy to be persuaded, consenting to the good, full of mercy and good fruits, without judging, without dissimulation.
Jas 3:18 And the fruit of justice is sown in peace, to them that make peace.
Jas_4:17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.
F.B. Meyer commentary (DOUAY TRANSLATION)
Seek Wisdom from Above
The true wisdom is not the child of the intellect, but of the heart. It
consists not only in what we know, but in what we are. It is in this
sense that it is used in the earlier chapters of the book of Proverbs
and in Job_28:1-28. Some who profess to be wise are jealous and
factious, despising others and confident in their superiority. This
spirit and temper are from beneath.
this exquisite string of qualities-like a thread of pearls-that
characterize true wisdom:
First, pure; then peaceable-
this is God’s order, never peace at any price.
First the holy heart,
then the quiet and gentle one.
Mercy and good works follow,
“free from favoritism and insincerity”; and
as the peace-loving soul goeth through the world,
dropping the seeds of peace,
those seeds produce harvests of righteousness.
Those that in peace sow peace,
shall reap a harvest of righteousness,
the fruit of peace.
Such a springtime!
Such an autumn!
Isa 53:5 But
1.he was wounded for our iniquities,
2.he was bruised for our sins:
3.THE CHASTISEMENT OF OUR PEACE WAS UPON HIM/JESUS,
4.by his bruises we are healed.
