    GREETINGS UNBELIEVERS !!!
    I KNEW YOU WOULD COME IN HERE IN SPITE OF THE TOPIC !!! big_smile

    Please DO NOT post until you read all other posts, thanks. big_smile



    (So far this topic had 240 posts in 4 hours. Why? Because truth is a mirror.)

    These people have no desire to listen to you or believe in The Lord God All-Mighty,
    no matter what you tell them and you all know it too.

    Endless keystrokes have shown as much and I urge you to cease and desist in posting replies to them all.

    They are all mockers, scoffers and reprobates who only come in here to prove as much. Many of them have said that is the only reason they come in here is to make fun, reticule, scorn and joke!!! Don't you all know what the scripture says in talking to such people? You are PARTAKING IN IT WITH THEM !!!

    #13 THINKS HE IS MESSIAH AND GOD AND THE LIGHT AND DOES NOT BELIEVE GOD CAME IN THE FLESH IN THE PERSON OF JESUS THE CHRIST AND HAS STATED AS MUCH !!! THE RECOGNIZABLE ANTI-CHRIST SPIRIT !!!

    #14 Does NOT believe Jesus was God either and does NOT worship Him as such.

    You are all wasting your precious time, effort, energy and words on these mockers and scoffers who blaspheme the Holy One, The Messiah and Savior.

    Messiah, Paul, Peter, James and John would have left off speaking to these long, long ago because they wasted no time on such people. They would rather speak to the people who had ears to hear THE TRUTH and shaken the dust from their feet as a testimony against the mockers just like Messiah said to do.

    Any further discussions with these people is really flying in the face of The Holy Spirit who urges us not to waste time on mockers and scoffers!!!

    When they post, do not reply at all, do not acknowledge the statements they make, they have no desire to listen and only want to make fun of our Sovereign Savior and KING!!!

    Messiah did NOTHING for people who scoffed and mocked, He only answered to faith, not demands of "proof" as if He was a puppet. So stop being a puppet !!!

    Yes, we are suppose to give an answer to them who want a reason from us as to why we believe, but those are the sincere ones.

    None of these I am speaking of is as such.

    Consider this a warning, rebuke, reproof, urging or concern. But consider it with seriousness from a fellow believer who has spent his last keystroke communicating to these who are wise in their own conceits.

    I have seen some of you come to the same conclusions and yet you keep coming back to post, reply and argue with people who are deaf to The Holy Spirit.

    Let the people on the list talk to themselves, ignore them.

    It's not easy to resist a reply, but just give it time, it is wise.

    They have proven what they want.

    NKJV - 2Sa 22:27 -     
    With the pure You will show Yourself pure; And with the devious You will show Yourself shrewd.

    NLT - 2Sa 22:27 -     
    To the pure you show yourself pure, but to the wicked you show yourself hostile.

    NLT - 2Sa 22:28 -     
    You rescue those who are humble, but your eyes are on the proud to humiliate them.

    NIV - 2Sa 22:28 -     
    You save the humble, but your eyes are on the haughty to bring them low.

    They will try to provoke you to make a reply, do not cater to them anymore.

    4 hours and already 240 posts....truth is a mirror.

    I have not replied to a single person on the list and I will not until they want to learn something.


    Here is a good example of one reply so far with someone who gets it.
    quote=sneakorocksolid. "We should state our position and always be ready with help or encouragement. If we determine it's not going anywhere productive then leave with an open invitation to answer civil questions any time in the future. I don't like 'Black-listing' it puts Christians in a position that could be interpreted as judging. People who are just plain insulting need to be ignored and should be by both sides."

    Yep....that is what I am saying...the mockers and scoffers are to be ignored totally.smile

    Cease casting !!!!!

    To all believers,

    Shalom

    Shaul smile

      I would like to congratulate to Shaul for telling the truth.
      I am disappointed that Sandra is on list. I thought always she is OK. But I do not have time to visit forum very often to discern. Also I like Marine, he is my favor one, friend. Shaul is right in many instances. Jesus brought hope, comfort, healing for those who are hurt, lost and they came to Him to listen. Two hubers attacked me said I am an idiot and that I am not educated. Somebody reported them to authority by I did not, even I was hurt. But I do not deserve rude treatment. One attacked me and I told him, I love him. By the way I try to tell them that it is truth that we Christians are hypocrites. Many time I was a big one. But being honest does not save anyone and bragging about honesty is also hypocritical.
      Why there is so much hate, I never seen it when this beautiful country adopted me.
      There is no fault on Jesus any kind. It does not make any sense to hate Him. They still do. It shows me they are wrong. I still love them and as Shaul said I do not have time to spent time with mockers.
      Shoul you have full right to say what is on you heart, brother. 
      If they believe or not, Jesus died for them and took their faults on cross. Unfortunately it is only faith to get full benefit.

        It took outright mockery, scoffing and ridicule to make the list.

      Sir with humble im asking you who do you think you are to identify non-believers. when you can't make others, to feel GOD, how can you judge
      them. doesnt you realise its your fault. and how do you identify non-believers, base on the religion that they are practising. understand the the truth-- non-believers doesnt exist-- you created them in your mind and its not true. there are no living entity that do not love GOD. i knew and it is true. each of us love god. i am not christian and i am not attached to any religion neither, will you dare separate me from GOD, no one can do it. christians believe in satan's right. so let me explain in your way, you go and call the most strongest satan from your religion teaching that described to you. i will just wait and see how daring he will to separate me from god or god from me. let us check your most powerfull enemies strenght can shake me or not smile. so what you can do is KEEP YOUR MIND CLEAN.----------------------------------------------------I can be your soul but when it comes to god there will be only ME.--chukra G smile

        If you will read on my friend smile
        I have stated that I do not want to engage in argument any longer, thats all.

        To those that applies to are ones I have in the past argued with.

        Not all on this list are ones that I have.

        Fairbear and I have come to an understanding about it all and I pray that all here will.

        Respect eachother that is as people of differing faiths, beliefs, etc. And not resort to the lowering levels that some have.

        I am at peace my dear friend. smile
        I understand why I will be attacked at times both spiritually and personally.
        I am ok with it really. I just am refusing to engage in a verbal battle with those who are not recieiving me or the message.
        That is all I meant when I said that I agree with Shaul.

        Not that I agree that any or all of those people should have been listed in the first place.

        I guess I should have chosen a better word than that of "completely" then.
        Sorry for that all. smile

          atomswifey, i think the problem people have with you is you either a) come off as aggressive and smug or b) ignore honest questions completely. if you are going to prosthelytize in online forums, you should be prepared to defend it.

          Daniel Carterposted 7 years ago in reply to this

          You and are I good. Let's keep it that way.
          In fact, for the record, I'm fine with everyone here. I like the diversity, thought provoking comments. Everyone holds their own mirror up and writes a reflection of themselves in these posts. If that's the case, then I don't have to take offense of what anyone thinks of me. It's much more about them than it is of me. So, though I may instill the fear of a junkyard dog in some believers, please just laugh it off. I asking you to question your own beliefs, just as you are asking me to question mine.

          The truth is, that if our beliefs weren't questioned, we would never progress. We would never struggle for something better, never derive the truth, because we would be lulled into the complacency of a dull life where truth is meaningless and irrelevent.

          So, if you can handle when I hammer on you so hard it hurts, then I should be able to accept the same.

          You can't comprehend the light without the dark. No joy unless you understand sorrow. No faith, unless you realize there is also unbelief.

          A little gratitude that we can each comprehend the opposites will reveal more to ourselves than any other thing. It is where the equations of the universe are understood not necessarily solved.

          Darkness is not a problem unless light is required. Even too much light can burn.

          The paradox is about accepting the opposites and seeing their value, not in condemning them.

          We should all roll our own and smoke that for an eternity.

          LOL

    Isn't the object of a mission to preach to those who don't believe ... as one can never make a believer of a man who already believes.

    Many mocked Christ openly, and yet he preached on ... unconcerned by those who didn't care to listen, as he spoke to those who were ready to hear.

    Feel lucky ... in Christ's day, believers were fed to the lions ... and yet they continued to preach. If you consider a forum to be a lion's den, then perhaps you were born in the wrong era ...

    Here's my take, and take it for what you will. I see nothing wrong with telling people about God, regardless of whether his existence can be proven or not. What I DO see as wrong is people using the religious forum to pass judgement upon one another as Jesus (Messiah) said, "He who is without sin among you, let him throw the first stone at her."

    Only one human being was ever born without sin, so not one of us is allowed judgment against another. If we are to speak the words of Jesus (Messiah) then let's live them more loudly than we speak them, for if we chose not to do so then we mock him with our own exhalation of breath.

    A teacher teaches a lesson - he never commands that it must be heard ...

      Messiah spoke openly to all, but only took time to teach those who had an ear to hear in private. He did not waste His time on mockers ever.
      In fact God says He hates mockers and scoffers. You need to read the scriptures more.

      Messiah did not try to prove anything to mockers or reply time and time and time again to them.

      You preach to all until it becomes evident who the mockers and scoffers are.
      Then you take aside the ones who want to know more.

      You cannot lead or teach people who mock. Teachers do not waste time on students who are not sincere.

      This is not casting any stones, it is using wisdom to the wise.

      I am judging what I hear, I am delivering them over to God and let Him deal with them as He says to do after so long a time.

      You cannot make a donkey move if he does not want to. smile

    Wow and judgment lives on in those who call themselves believers!  Your a bunch of jerks... the most racist and segregated bunch of people who haven't a clue about what it means to be human lest you ask your unholy savor for forgiveness so that you can continue to makes yourselves look like bigger jerks than you truly are.

    Your god would be so proud of your nonacceptance of those different from yourselves because you say your savior preaches acceptance and love and forgiveness but this is the way you treat people different from yourselves.

    You might want also include in your list all the Jehovah's witnesses and Jews as well for not believing that Jesus is God who came in the flesh and do not worship him as such.

    Unless you god Jesus also told you to stay away from people who accept and love Jesus but don't believe he is god too.
    Let me guess...

    Jews and JW's are evil too right?  The next time you look in a mirror you could only ask yourself one question.  "Do you really know yourself?" 

    Dual formed question if you would like to give it some thought.. oh wait just look for the answers in your Bible!

      Jesus said, to wipe the dust from your feet if they do not recieve what you have to say.

        I know it might be hard for you to understand but the message your passing on isn't the message you think you are giving.

        The message I see over and over again is a lack of love, compassion, acceptance and or genuine understanding for humanity.

        All the messages start off with "you have to" or "ignore them" or "they will go to hell" or "they don't know love" etc... and then you expect that people will just follow a crowed of people who call themselves believers who know darn well that if I don't agree with your sentiments exactly or act and say the same things you say then we are considered "anti-christ" or the devils helpers or something.

        I see a better way, to really love and accept people would be to love and accept the differences in beliefs without worry whatsoever.

        "Perfect love caste out fear... there is no fear in love."  But you preach fear and damnation all day long to us who fear nothing of the sort and then you expect that we should some how be instilled with fear based on what you believe.

        I personally fear nothing of the sort because I do feel that love has been made perfect in myself but my words are my own but found in your bibles as well but you say it is from the devil because I don't believe that Jesus is God and I say that there is no better teaching then one that loves without fear.

        While I disbelieve many things, I do live with certain things in the back of my mind.  One of those being: what if it were me?

        You can say, what if that was Jesus?  I don't always think the nicest things or say the nicest things but I know that I wouldn't treat someone as less then what I am... animal, human, spirit, god?  Does it matter? 

        I don't believe so but you might just feel as though you are being treated unfairly based on one thing.  I don't accept what you have to say about Christ and Hell or even Heaven but I do accept you as a person just like myself and with all respect; if you stop saying negative things about people who don't believe things the same as you then you wouldn't feel as though your being 'attacked'. smile

      Love one another was spoken by Messiah to believers in Him, not mockers and scoffers. God hates mockery, He does not love it at all.

      I am talking to believers only here and will leave off speaking to your posts because you do not understand and nor do you wish to either.

      I just have no time for it at all.

He showed through his actions how we as humans should behave and we (as a species) learn by watching others and seeing the rewards they receive.

      Christ taught wherever he stood, never caring that many of those around him cared not for what he had to say. In fact, he taught the most to those who listened the least, as they grew to understand from his actions.

    Let me ask you this AW,how on earth do you really know who is saved and who is not?.

    I think it shows little wisdom to judge a persons eternity or faith based on a forum analysis , or indeed judge at all.

    By all means have an opinion.

      You cannot judge whether or not someone will be saved, but we can judge by seeing "their fruits" whether or not they are saved now.
      They clearly demonstrate themselves to be god haters, "if He exists" as they put it.

      If one hates God, denies his existance, they deny themselves salvation. By their own admissions they are not saved.

      They do not want any part of this "evil, psychopathic god". As they term Him. "This invisible little irrational entity".

      These words ring clear and loud to those of us ministering the gospel as we do on here from to time to them.

      I choose to not engage in conversation with them any longer in the religion forum. We can all just agree to disagree then. I think that is fair for both sides. And like Shaul said, Let God deal with each accordingly, as HE sees fit. It is not for me to judge them on any of it, just to spread Gods word and yes wipe the dust from my feet, if they do not recieve it.

      Why beat them over the head with the gospel? They have already heard, the seeds have been planted. Let it go and let God, I say. smile

    We are called to love not to judge unbelievers.  And although I agree that we shouldn't debate and get into word wars with each other I don't agree that we shouldn't continue to speak our hearts and beliefs. I believe that even those that are challenging to us may be touched in some way and if they aren't it isn't because I haven't tried.  We aren't supposed to not be in relationship with unbelievers for how can you reach someone that you can't touch.  We are only to come out from among them when we are being influenced instead of the other way around.  Although I see your point about getting into senseless and hurtful word wars ... we control how, when and if we respond. I believe that there may be some who are truly seeking an answer and not answering isn't the response that Jesus would give to them.  And as for the others, He loves them and died for them just as He did you and me.  I wonder what would have happened if someone had decided to put us on a "list" as someone unreachable.  Thank God, He did't do that and I won't either.

        Then allow me to paraphrase your words into words that a creator might find more suiting ...

        Though there are those that don't believe, do not allow it to sway what you have seen and heard. Truth is not the same for all, but in our actions (not our words) do we show that good overpowers all evil that abounds.

        Those who do not believe, do so because they haven't seen proof. By offering our wisdom, rather than the steel of our swords, they shall see the true love of our creator and understand why we embrace him as we do.

        We do not need proof of his existence as we have already received it. For others, that proof can only come from their own heart, not our witness we had for ourselves, as we too had to learn it for ourselves.

        By not arguing for the existence of our creator, and instead, allowing one to believe what they will, we prove our faith to be solid, as we do not need to argue the existence of our creator any more than anyone need argue the existence for one's self.

        So, we need not ignore those that refuse to believe, but rather, understand that the good lives they lead will perhaps someday allow them to see it for themselves.

        And if they should never find the way, then we shall remember them for the good that they did while they were here, refusing to bear witness to any wrongdoings, as it is not for us to judge.

        It is not they who stick the spear though our soul, but is an action of our own, perpetrated by a need to force others to enjoy the love we have grown to know. But it is only a serpent who tempts another - whether the precept be good or evil - and we chose to commune the good things with one another, rather than flick our tongues like a serpent, contending ourselves as worthy of deciding the creator's will.

        So allow those to be non-believers who chose not to believe, for their own good acts display the betrayal against the blackness that refuses to allow them to believe. They can believe in science if they will, as the creator made all that science explains, and in believing in science over religion, they are thus still believers in another skin.

        Show me a man who believes the heavens were created from one minuscule particle of matter, and I will show you a man who believes the creation occurred, without ever having witnessed it with his own eyes.

        That belief does not come from the mouth of a non-believer - that belief comes from a man who can't find himself able to put a name to his belief.

        Only a man who seeks purposefully to harm others is truly a non-believer, for his mind is too closed to the creator to hear his words and learn how to behave.



        Shaul, the world is overpopulated with believers ... it's just that many of them don't know that they truly believe. And science doesn't defy a creator's existence, it offers proof, for we are incapable of creating the universe we live in, and yet, something did ... and that creative energy was the creator of all that exists, all that ever will be, and one day ... all that must end.

        The non-believers you speak of are people who spend their lives seeking to understand creation without blindly accepting it occurred. We seek to understand the magnificence of it all, refusing to believe one entity could be responsible, as it was such a vast task to undergo. However, to marvel at a man's painting is to marvel at the man who created it ... and that's where disbelief becomes belief, without one ever knowing their role has switched hands.

        Good deeds are an act of the creator, and no man is capable of them without the creator's hand showing them how - belief or no belief. As such, you will find few non-believers, but you will find millions who are certain that belief doesn't exist.

        Again I say ... if you believe in everything around you, then you already unknowingly believe in its creator, which is why I can't understand the separatism between those who believe, and those who think they don't ... as arguably they both do, but in a different way.

        Call the sky blue or call it light blue ... it's still a sky. By understanding what I have said, you might finally answer for yourself the riddle ... why do some refuse to believe ... it's because they already believe with a different mind, and you are calling for them to see through your eyes, when they already can see through their own.

        For those that say they don't believe ... look to the heavens at night and ask yourself ... what created all that I see before my eyes? You can offer some theories and explanations, but in the end you are forced to admit it's mostly beyond your comprehension, which is why you continue to look up to the heavens ... to understand it all. The fact that you seek knowledge tells me you believe, as you are looking at the canvas, trying to understand the creator's methods and purpose.

        God bless you, Shaun, and may you grow wisdom from what I have shared with you as hate is not the opposite of love - it's indifference, and by choosing to ignore others who you find unworthy you profess an emotion other than love ... and we know our creator is all about love.

    I'm a believer, and I will not turn my back on my fellow man. I believe in a creator, I believe in the findings of science, and I believe in the ability of mankind to grow to become something better than they were the day before.

    I also believe that the unbelievers are touched by our creator as much as they believers are, and their disbelief doesn't prevent our creator from performing great acts through them without their knowledge or recognition.

    Just because one does not believe in his creator does not mean his creator does not believe in him, and our creator acts through the hearts of all mortals, regardless of their predisposition.

    Look at the many acts of kindness performed by nonbelievers everyday. Are they to be sentenced for their actions or their beliefs?

    As stated earlier, cold-blooded murders have been performed by those who believed with all their heart that they were acting on behalf of God. If belief is all one needs to ascend to heaven, then I fear ascension, for many will make it to heaven who do not deserve the presence of the creator.

    ... by the way, my great grandfather was a methodist minister who lived to a ripe old age and I attended church with him daily as a child, so while I am not up on the many versus, I have stood witness to the many lessons that were taught.

    You will save the humble people; But Your eyes are on the haughty, that You may bring them down.

    You rescue those who are humble, but your eyes are on the proud to humiliate them.

      Sorry, but if the message here is to not speak to non-believers, then count me out. It's your religious forum, and you just found yourself with one less person in it that believes.

        You might believe, but a lot of believers lack wisdom.
        By your own admission, you do not know the scriptures well.
        You mix humanism with them all the time in your posts.

        Go study the scriptures before you try to teach another.

        Would you try to teach a teacher who has been a teacher for 30 years?
        And you can harldy even cite a passage from the book he teaches from.

    My Bible tells me to preach the Word of God, to all, to tell them that there is some one who loves them in a loveless world.  As long as a person is alive, he or she has a chance to learn of the Lord Jesus Christ and accept eternal life from Him. 

    Matthew 10:7 King James Version
    7.  And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.
    Remember in Acts 8 Paul consented to the killing of Stephen for preaching the Word of God, but it was the forgiving spirit of Stephen that cause God to forgive Saul known as Paul, and it was Paul who wrote most of the New Testament.  So there is always hope, no matter how long it may take, we do not stop  to witness and preach salvation, until Christ be form in them. 

    Father I ask that you will cover this person with the blood of Jesus and open their eyes to receive wisdom, revelation and knowledge of the Word of God in Jesus Name Amen!  Show love not hate show love, people are hurting, maybe this is why they reject the gospel, never give up on a soul.

    Shaul this is also called judging others

    Judging - Wrongly. There are at least three types of judging: 1) correct evaluations from a heart of love, 2) correct evaluations with a negative attitude, and 3) incorrect evaluations but of other people. Jesus was talking about the first type in John 7:24, 51. But we typically practice the second and third types. James describes one type of judgment that is wrong. It is called slander.

      Do not speak against one another, brethren. He who speaks against a brother, or judges his brother, speaks against the law, and judges the law; but if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law, but a judge of it. (NASB) James 4:11



    Conclusion: There are two key times when we must judge others: when we see another Christian committing sin (Matt. 18:15-17; Gal. 6:1) and when we evaluate a person to be a leader in a church (1 Tim. 3 and Titus 1:7-9). We are also to evaluate false teachers. Otherwise, how do we know to avoid them (2 John 10)? May our evaluations be righteous, objective, prayerful and with a heart of love. 
     


    Here is the rest of it, http://www.neverthirsty.org/pp/corner/read/r00269.html

    that is shameful to be placing others in the open for what they believe, it is not prayerful nor meant with a heart of love, it is meant with a heart of scorn which God does not find acceptable. Did Jesus go among the sinners and point fingers? Did he mock them? This is why those who do not believe would not follow or be lead to God because of things like this. sad

              Question:
              Could Jesus (god incarnate) have hated anyone when he spoke words of forgiveness and non-resistance to wickedness? Did he not say, "Love your enemies" (Matthew 5:44, Luke 6:27), "Do not resist him that is wicked; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also" (Matthew 5:39) and, alternately, "To him that strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also" (Luke 6:29)?

              Answer:
              These verses are taken as representative of the extraordinary forgiveness taught and exercised by Jesus. However, the  sublime dictum to "turn the other cheek" was not practiced by Jesus himself. According to the Gospels, Jesus preached turning the other cheek, loving one's neighbor and praying for them, and forgiving those who wrong you. When did Jesus manifest such behavior in his personal relationships, during his lifetime, for others to emulate?

              You need to read there is the verse there is the answer

        I believe you have a jealous demon, hateful demon, mocking demon I wonder if you are Satan's disciple? why in the world would you go after others who have read the Bible for years and know there Lord and Savior? You young man need to bury nostrils so deep in the word and then come back and every Christian on here will pray for you including myself. Cleanse the demons and your words would be golden. smile

    I can't speak for anyone who might have left the church, and then become a non-believer.  For all I know their unbelief might be genuine, or they may have gotten sick of the church.  I myself am pretty close to leaving church altogether, but not because I don't believe.  No, it's because there's only so much BS in a church I can take.


    It is possible for someone to dump religion, and still be a believer.

    I honestly sought God and I honestly sought Jesus and I honestly found that all religion is false and honest and real love comes from the heart not from descriptions found in a book.

    I wish you would stop Shaul.  You do not love and you are what your book calls one who says they believe but does not otherwise you would love and appreciate the differences in people and embrace others with love and compassion because you understand.

    But you don't understand and apparently you don't know how to read very well.  When you are wrong and your brothers and sister believers and non believers alike are telling you, you are wrong... then you are wrong.

      Would you like to learn something?  Isn't it your gods rule to treat others the same as you would like to be treated.  Therefor if you would like a person from your list to learn from you then you should also feel inclined to learn from them as well.

      Whatever you think you know is a fraud and the most blind of them all would never know it.

    We should state our position and allways be ready with help or encouragement. If we determine it's not going anywhere productive then leave with an open invitation to answer civil questions any time in the future. I don't like 'Black-listing' it puts Chritians in a position that could be interpreted as judging. People who are just plain insulting need to be ignored and should be by both sides.

        Well, I'm just an interested observer, so please ignore me too.

        I'm continually amazed how threads like this grow like wildfire.
        This one has had 230 posts in 4 hours.

        Nothing is ever settled.
        Nothing is ever learned.
        Nobody's opinions or thoughts are ever changed.


        Just lots of same old, same old tirades, bashing, cutting and pasting, and general ill will.
        (With an occasional bright spot of humour, almost exclusively from a non religious person)

        Bye now.
        sorry for the interruption.

      Luke 14:26 if anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother, his wife and children, his brothers and sisters—yes, even his own life—he cannot be my disciple.

      Sounds more like the Devil then it does the God of Love.

      There are quite a few books contained in the bible.  One might note that there are only two, some might call it the Tree of Good and Evil.

      For those who take from it learn of two things, Good and Evil.  Jesus says, "look for what is good."  If you judge people based on what you believe is bad than there isn't any justice or truth in you and you are not a wise or righteous judge and you are not a judge at all.

      Jesus judges what is good because good judges what is good.  Likewise, evil judges evil because it takes evil to know it is evil and measure it's worth.

      If you continue to judge what you believe is wrong then assuredly, the only judgment that could come against you is the one that judges in the same manor.

      So it is to my understanding and my personal wisdom and divine intervention and "authority" to disclose to whomever wants to understand it, that all of the bible is true by two degrees and what you read and take from it is only a window into your own soul.

      Internal damnation is brought forth not by any god or anything outside yourself but what you put out into the world in received back.  This is not a new age principal but has been with you since before you picked up the bible.

      Jesus wants to turn the other cheek in hope of stopping the perpetual cycle "revenge" and there is no better way to stop the "madness" then to stop judging people for their inequities, their hardships, their misfortunes, their words, their mistakes of the past and put forth your very best effort to love in the eyes of good.

      There are people out there who have no reason to forgive those who have hut them in the worst of ways yet they do and when I hear of these things I think to myself that if there really is a heaven... they deserve to go there.

      But when I hear of those who cannot even accept someone because of a belief I think... I hope they are not disappointing to find out they didn't make it to heaven.

    When truth and love thus go together, and yet the message of God is rejected and despised, it leaves men without excuse, and turns to a testimony against them

    And whosoever will not receive you, when ye go out of that city, shake off the very dust from your feet for a testimony against them.

    Nowhere in scripture does it tell us to go back over and over and over again until they come to that knowledge.

    The seeds are planted, they will either grow or not. To argue and debate endlessly is not making God anymore clear to them and not joining in further debate with them is not refusing them of anything except a further debate.

    I have been contributing my thoughts and beliefs in the religion forum ever since I first signed up with hubpages. Which was not that long ago. But long enough to see that no matter what the discussion, topic, posts etc. There are those ones who continue to mock and blaspheme God, His Word, and His Son (Jesus).

    Those that Shaul pointed out do this continually. No matter what manner or effort we engage with them.
    So it is "fruitless" to continue those debates with them.
    The seeds are planted, let God continue to grow them!

    It is not as though we are stopping from ministering the gospel all together or even to them. They will see and can read what we write in posting topics, responding to other topics etc. But why continue to argue and or debate with someone who is not willing to receive what you say?

    A good example is on the other thread Shaul started.(Something to realize? Imagine this and Imagine that? Do you know this)?
    As soon as he wrote it I responded as did earnest and tantrum. Look at what they had to say.
    Just take a look for yourselves.
    Was it on topic?
    Were they curious about it or asking any questions pertaining to it?
    No. They just mocked us, again, as usual.
    So we wipe the dust from our feet and move on.
    What is so wrong about that?
    They are constantly telling us anyway to stop spreading our garbage about God to them. This way they can find no argument with us now can they?

      Nothing is wrong with that, but Shaul is not following his own advice.  Yeah, he claims that he's not talking to the unbelievers, but in doing so he's now passing his judgments to the believers. 

      It's getting rather sad.
