So, as much as you wouldn’t bite a rabid dog for biting you. We understand that the Biblical context of an eye for an eye and turn the other cheek, is not to give way for wickedness but to persevere in continually exercising the righteousness of God, which this damn world hates, and we are not to respond by resorting to their own wicked devices, in getting back at them.
If you are coming to faith you must be prepared to give up anything and everything, if that is the price you have pay to come to faith, that is provided if you want to, which is provided if God is drawing you to believe in His Son Jesus Christ
God has decreed His called-out-ones (Ecclesia/Church) to conform to Jesus/God’s nature at the earliest. This nature is the very law of God that is written on the believer’s heart, which makes us a new creation in Christ
The Bible says life is in the blood but the Bible also says that the Spirit of Christ is a life-giving spirit, which every true believer shares in. So, just as people can be related by a bloodline which they share in, so too people can also be related by the Spirit of Christ, which they share in.
if you are genuinely looking for friends in “high places”, and I mean genuinely looking, then look no further because Jesus is all you need
the Bible clearly sites the role of Father, Son & Holy Spirit, and a person cannot be saved if he/she denies the Three Persons of the Trinity, who are the One Godhead
This world loves to entertain thoughts of a god, who is so full of love that he is ever ready to forgive whenever you feel like coming to him. With this kind of sentimental mush preached in humanist Churches today, it is no wonder that Church pews are filled with twice as many women as there are men because the women of the world love baseless sentimental nonsense.
The problem with loving and believing in yourself is that people of the world don’t understand that this not the solution but root of the problem. We were made in the image of God, as human beings we were made to carry His own image/nature as if it were our own.
P.S. I DON’T SUPPORT #GayRight or #GayPride for the same reason I DON’T SUPPORT the Right to murder, or the Right to rape, or the fallen Pride murderers/rapists take in their capacity to sin. After all these are all sins deserving of death but our world is lost ever since the fall.
True religion is about pleasing God and serving His interest, for hypocrites however, religion is all about pleasing people and serving their own interest. So, just as there is such a thing as temporal blessing, we ought to understand that these hypocrites who do good to serve their own interest and rewarded in full here on earth itself, where their every blessing is susceptible to the destruction/corruption of moth and vermin, possibly reflecting their own spiritual condition before God.
