"Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you: not as the world gives, give I to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." John 14:27
"I perceive that God is no respecter of persons." Acts. 10:34.
"The phrase "God is no respecter of persons" means that His dealings with a man are not based on outward appearance, position, rank, wealth or nationality. We all, because of our fallen and sinful nature, are guilty of respecting persons. God does not look to the outward face of a man to determine His dealings with anyone. The literal rendering of this phrase "to respect persons" is "to receive the face". It is to look at the outward appearance and make that the basis for your dealing with such a person.
Contrary to our natural ways, God's own sovereign purpose, unsearchable design and the pleasure of His will are the only deciding factors in how He deals with His creatures" -source-http://www.geocities.com/brandplucked/respect.html
In other words, the term "respecter" in this scripture is meant as is described above.
God does not charge His people to insult others, however, if the truth does condemn, it condemns.
"Your own mouth condemns you, not mine; your own lips testify against you". Job 15:6 "whenever our hearts condemn us. For God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything" 1 John 3:20
I have to laugh at God getting the "heebie jeebies" from anyone!so excuse me... LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL
Ok now back to the re-call...
So what "terms" does God use to describe us, His people, All of us? "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." We are loved.
Romans 5:8, "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
1st Peter 1:18,19, "Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold... But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot."
2nd peter 3:9, "The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance." God is “not willing that any should perish.”
"untrustworthy beliefs are largely due to his drawing mistaken conclusions from what he wrongly takes to be evidence. It's that simple".-source- the rant
no I am afraid it is not that simple. "This precious value, then, is for you who believe; but for those who disbelieve, "THE STONE WHICH THE BUILDERS REJECTED, THIS BECAME THE VERY CORNER stone," and, "A stone that causes men to stumble and a rock that makes them fall." They stumble because they disobey the message--which is also what they were destined for." 1 Peter 2:8 "Those by the way side are they that hear; then comes the devil, and takes away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved." Luke 8:12
"Truly, truly, I say to you, He that hears my word, and believes on him that sent me, has everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death to life." John 5:24
"So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God". Romans 10:17
To those who condemn believers hear this whether you are a fellow believer or not:
He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the LORD. Proverbs 17:15
Acquitting the guilty and condemning the innocent--the LORD detests them both. Proverbs 17:15
Whoever approves of wicked people and whoever condemns righteous people is disgusting to the LORD. Proverbs 17:15
Jesus loves you, God loves you no matter who you are, what you have done or what you have or do not have. He loves you and wants for you to love Him back.
Simple message, Simple truth and NO RANT ABOUT IT!
No the real question should be "Does she care how others on here perceive her?"
I do not. If I "appear" ridiculous in what I have stated, then you accuse the Word of God to be ridiculous, as I quoted directly from it.
And again, did you comprehend or understand? No, you did not as I said. Jesus said, "For judgment I have come into this world, so that the blind will see and those who see will become blind." John 9:39
Many many years ago it was my job to teach union Stuarts how to wright grievances to be arbitrated. The most important thing is to keep it short and to the point, like a police report. She ran over my foot with her car at the corner of 3rd. and main. It don't matter how big her boobies were or what color her halter top was or how dirty her windshield or tires were or if she wore glasses . It doesn't matter if she had her hair in a bun or wearing a red hat. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. Make one point at a time and I wouldn't go to sleep before I understand what the point was, ????? what was I saying????? OH yea now I remember her bumper was bent down on the right side, or was it on the left?????????
He does not respect your position in life when it comes to how He weighs you on the scales, hangs you in the balance. He cannot be bribed or bought off. He does not care about your rank or status, no respecter of persons. Understand?
Poor, rich, famous, fat, dumb, believer, atheist etc....makes no diff!!!
Just to show that God is not how "the rant" showed Him to be. That although I found humor in it from another point of view, God could have never ranted like that about one person. God is not like that.
Is it moral to profit from the murder of an innocent man? If you accept that the person is murdered to give you everlasting life aren’t you just as guilty of the crime? If a man said to his son, let them murder...
When something goes wrong in your life, whether it is financial, or illness, or troubles in a relationship, or troubles at work with either a co-worker, or your boss, whatever the difficulty you might have to face, Why...
