JESUS SAID...

Joh_12:32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.

Winning souls that are facing eternal damnation IN HELL..

is of greater importance than your contentions.

Wisdom and meekness.
.
Men are naturally fond of a reputation for superior understanding and wisdom.

Here, then, is the best way to show the real possession of such superiority;

not by a forward self-consequence

—a self-commendatory, and over-eager desire to dictate to others from the teacher’s chair;

not by a magisterial dogmatism of manner;

not by a lofty and supercilious contempt of other men and their views and modes of instruction;

not by a keen, contentious, overbearing zeal.

No; let the man of “knowledge” and “wisdom”

show his possession of these attributes—

acquaintance with truth, and

sound discretion to direct to the right use of it—

by keeping his station, and studying to adorn it.

Let him, first of all,maintain

“a good conversation”

—or course of conduct,

private and public—

a conversation upright and holy, in full harmony with the genuine influence of Divine truth, and

“let Him show, out of such a conversation, his works”—

the practical results of his knowledge and professed faith.

These “works” consisted in

active conformity to the duties required by Divine precept, in all the various relations of life, more private or more public. And these “works” were to be shown “with meekness of wisdom”—that is, with the meekness by which genuine wisdom is ever distinguished.

Vanity is one of the marks of a weak mind.

Humility and gentleness are the invariable associates of true wisdom.

The two were united, in their respective fulness of perfection,

in the blessed Jesus.

Let the man, then,

who would have a character for true wisdom manifest

in his entire deportment

“the meekness and gentleness of Christ.”(H. Wardlaw, D. D.)

What is wrong with you? Have you no understanding?
Can anyone be EQUAL with GOD unless HE IS GOD? Jesus Christ has always been fully GOD. Only a sinless one could shed his blood to redeem sinners. And only GOD is sinless. Get a clue and get over yourself and this redicules argument you are trying to make. It is fruitless and it is wrong.

You wouldn't know what the pearls look like if it at your feet, though I have tried.
To find the pearls in life requires to shed the arrogance and prestigious make-up that men put on.
You seem to have a problem doing so.
BTW - the pearl is always there for the taking - you just can't let yourself get in the way of retrieving it.

You are wrong again, GiF.
I'm not the one who dismisses Jesus. You are.
I'm not the one who allows men to choose for me, what "God's" inspiration is limited to. But you are.
Have you ever really examined yourself as your "Paul" requires?
<quoted text>
No I haven't. Jesus doesn't bring any eternal death, that would be a function of the material world we live in. We all are going to die. BTW - since you think this, then y ou don't understand what Jesus taught, because he supposedly taught how we transcend to an eternal 'life'.
Where are you getting that from? Oh yeah - men.
You shouldn't be so negative. But that is an issue Christianity wants to instill upon you.
- Shoot - continue to be negative, you will always want to look up to someone...else for help. Jesus doesn't like people who can't help themselves.
<quoted text>
All out of context.....but you already knew that, because you are out to deceive others.
Please post where "God" specifically states which texts are inspired and which are not.

THE BIBLE SAYS

Jud_1:3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.

SINCE YOU DENY

EARNESTLY CONTENDING..FOR

the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.

PRESENT ANOTHER JESUS

AND CONTEND FOR FABLES AND CONJECTURE...

YOU WASTE YOUR ENERGY ...EXERCISING YOU FINGERS...

POSTING TO ME...

THE BIBLE INSTRUCTS ME CONCERNING THOSE SUCH AS YOURSELF....

Tit 3:10 A man that is an here tick after the first and second admonition reject;

Tit 3:11 Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.

So you are certain that being "born again" guarantees salvation???
If I was a god that created good and evil, and I observed the fact that you decided on your own that you were worthy of heaven and others were fodder for hell ... I would relegate you to the hell that you were certain was deserved for others.
Now THAT theology makes complete sense to me.
Arrogance deserves to learn humility, and a god that created good and evil knows how to balance the "scales of justice."
Ya see ... I don't believe in hell or heaven ... so I believe that if a creator actually does exist, the scenarios will carry on in a hereafter the same as occurs on earth, as it is obvious that the creator enjoys his/her creation of suffering.
From my perspective, religion is BUNK.
I am not being arrogant.

As I said,anyone can be religious about anything.

Your religious about atheism.

I don't condemn anyone to hell,it's not my place to do so.

Who am I to judge others?

All I know is what I believe.

Now you can go on and on but I will never turn my back on the ONE who saved me.

He's been to good to me and also merciful to me.

I love the Lord with all my heart.

Without His mercy and grace I'd still be in bondage of sin.

He came to set us free from that bondage.

It is a repentant way.
I cannot say that enough.

My atheism, like that of Spinoza,
is true piety towards the universe
and denies only gods fashioned
by men in their own image,
to be servants of their human interests.

Your husband is an answer to a theologians "prayer." The theologians instilled in him that ONLY in the church could he be repented of his "sins."
I don't believe in sin or perfection, or religion, so I believe I need to ask forgiveness of other humans I've harmed, and it's their choices if they do or don't forgive me for harming them.
If your husband believes that a god needs a middle-man in a church to connect him to the god ... from my perception, he doesn't have faith ... he has FEAR.
Theologians NEED people to be filled with fear of retribution. It's how they make their money.
My husband repented at home.
The Holy Spirit was dealing with him.
That is why he knew he had to get back in church.

You see,
When a child of God drifts away from the Lord,they hurt the members of the church.
Once they ask the Lord to forgive them and they know He has,they are led back to church by the Holy Spirit and ask the church to forgive them.They make their acknowledgments.

My husband was never a bad person,he just got out of church. and he knew what he had to do in order to have peace in his heart.

He knew he had to make thing right with the Lord before he went back to church to fellowship with his brothers and sisters in Christ.

You have to experience it to understand what I am telling you.

Again,it's a repentant way.

The will to survive is the mother of mental invention, and religion is a case in point.

Humans were not satisfied with one life on earth, so in their imaginations they created religion in the hopes of extending their lives for eternity.

Greed and nothing BUT greed, is the name of the religious game!

"I want more life for me and in a hereafter I don't want my SELF to suffer ever again ... so I will create a god that will reward me with eternal bliss and will reject others who don't see eye to eye with me."

Religion is all about ME ... MY SELF ... and I.

The fact that male-theologians throughout history created the all powerful gods and their savior "SONS" as male, ought to wake you people out of your slumbers that the theologians were full of nothing but baffle gas.
They needed you for your MONEY, and they needed you so that they could make you believe that they spoke and wrote words FOR gods.
Obviously you have never been in a small country church here where I live.

The pastor does not get paid.
It's a call from God that they answer to.
It's not about money.
It's about preaching His word,feeding His sheep.

These so called preachers that ask for money to "plant a seed"yet they have big rings on their fingers and drive big old fancy smancy cars and even have an airplane is not right.

Any money that is taken up in the church house is for the up keep of the church and charity.

That is the way it is in the small local churches down here.

I wish you would have a little respect for the believers and not talk about the Lord the way you do.
