I know I am hearing cheers from some of you and thats ok.
I just wanted to take a few moments and tell SOME of the believers who have chosen to add insult to injury while claiming to be so very loving (Hypocrisy is a funny little word isn't it? where you have offended me. I have been falsely called a pharisee I have been falsely accused of shouting my beliefs I have been falsely accused of not spreading the message of Gods love I have been falsely accused of being unloving while I quoted scripture
And you know what? These things did not come from the unbelievers you are guarding so diligently from hearing the truth, these accusations come from you who claim to be so loving as the "real christians". I was defended by some who do not claim such superiority in love as you, who have accused me. I was defended by ones who do not share in your beliefs as the "real Christians". (Have a good long thought about that one will you please).
And I leave you as I prayed about it all, to chew on these
"He(Jesus) said to them, "You are the ones who justify yourselves in the eyes of men, but God knows your hearts. What is highly valued among men is detestable in God's sight."
One of you on here actually said though I have seen this MANY times inferenced in what MOST of you who have lied about me said that people should not quote scripture as it "risks someone being offended". ????? wow thats all I can say to that. wow how far away from scripture, GODS WORD we have come to believe something like that.
But I digress and will leave you with this: Whoever approves of wicked people and whoever condemns righteous people is disgusting to the LORD. Proverbs 17:15
Now I am off the religion forum altogether as that is just what this is "religion". Bogged down in false doctrine and teachings. There is but one way and that is Jesus
Start first by loving HIM first, putting HIM first not yourselves! and certainly not the opinions of those who might be "offended" by His Word!!! And then maybe you will have eyes to see the "real ones" out here.
Here you go again AW with the martyr thing, you start out by saying you don't condemn anyone then condemn everyone who doesn't believe that you are right and back it up with more quotes...when will you get it, it is not up to you to decide who is righteous, or wicked. All anyone has done was responded to you in the exact fashion you use and now that you can't have it your way you're gonna take your toys and leave.
I'm not glad to see you go but your faith was tested and at the first sign of real struggle you collapsed. You could have used all this feedback as an opportunity to evaluate yourself and measure your own compassion but instead you have ignored everyone that has disagreed with you like a petulant child. Oh yeah you rail against those who fling insults and judge by judging and declaring us all guilty of ignoring God's direction.
You speak about those who justify their selves in the eyes of men, what have you been doing for the last four days but use scripture to justify yourself to those on this forum again and again? I just don't know what to say anymore, how far gone can any one really be?
One can be really gone and never see! There's that song Amazing Grace - "I was blind, but now I see" This person still doesn't see and tells everyone else they are blind. Hmmmmm? I'm thinking go back to basics atomswifey, press the restart button on the preaching until you see it all in yourself first.
I am angry, this freak should have been banned by the Hubs staff who instead decided to ban a good hubber who helps newbies for 3 days, I say BAN ME for 3 days because this hubber is a waste of space on Hubs, but will you ban her for stirring shit for the last week, no you wont and I have to ask why not ?
hello friend. whomever 'they' are yo can be sure 'they' mean no harm. but may i say a few words before you leave.
first Yeshua is God. He fulfilled the covenant so that all men ARE saved, whether or not they realize it. That is Grace v. Law.
God quoted his own words because those he was teaching needed to hear it. Example: when he is asked to read from Isaiah, did he read the even 'verse' as we see it in the book, no, in fact, He read only a portion of it.
quoting chapter and verse does not -i repeat- dos not make you a smart believer, it makes you a great orator. i know this because i used to quote better than most.
the entire point of my note is this: the love of God is in you, then you should be excited that others try to condemn you, insult you, harm you even try to literally kill you because of the good news. this is what paul said, peter said, stephen did and so many other examples. instead of complaining or lashing out, pray for them.
because many will come in His name and pretend to be godly. they will pretend to speak in multiple tongues, pretend to heal the sick, pretend to preach the good news, when they are really wolves in sheep clothing. they'll run around the church auditorium, babble like fools, scream hallelujah, fall on the floor trembling. these are not believers. these are deceivers. they have deceived themselves. they will come to you in the last days and say Gods wrath is coming on the church, that He demands obedience. Yet He said, if you love me, keep my commands -not keep my commands or else I'll crush you. Are we under Grace or law?
you are a wise man if you heed the Word of the New Covenant, you will prosper and have great success. But if your heart is hard toward any man, the Lord will seal up your floodgate of Grace and the treasures He promised you now and in the Life yet hidden.
we are to judge the deeds of righteousness by faith, not the righteousness which is of the law nor the deeds of unrighteousness. for the law demands an offering, it demands obedience, it demands judgment, it demands atonement for sin.
grace does not demand, it requests. Has he not taken ALL the sin of the world on Him, past, present, future? Indeed. Therefore we have confidence on the day of judgment and come boldly to the throne of Grace, seeing that WE have a high priest, an Advocate who is not unlike us, yet bore our sin and shame. He alone made peace with the Father, fulfilled the law, prophets and gave all men the gift of Life.
if you are a believer, that is living in Grace, do not stray or be surprised by what others say.
For as He is, so are you in this world. For it is written: He IS risen from the dead, taken up into heaven and sits at the right hand of the Father, given the name above all names and ALL things are beneath His feet.
..as He is, so are you in THIS world. ..the kingdom of God is WITHIN you.
you are blessed my friend. do not argue your blessing like the proselyte who still bend their knees to idols, nor sell it for food as Esau nor give it away like for the satisfaction of a harlet. But be merciful and forgive 490 times each day...
So hands up if you agree this twat should have been banned instead of Ryan, it may be Hubpages Website but we ultimately keep this website running. I am glad this sicko is going and I have no hesitation saying good riddance to a shit stirring bitch !
Its ok she knew she wud get a 3 day ban but it wasnt for her it was for Ryan. I still think its unfair though, this hubber has been troublemaking and abusive for ages and got it away with it but CG knew she was going to be banned for 3 days and accepts it !
Yeah, CG will always be twice the person you are. You and wifey have yer belief but CG has more, she will stand up and say what needs to be said not fearing a 3 day ban or a membership ban just to say people like you are not welcome here !
I'm awaiting the next one, cowering in fear of the massive intellect of these fundies. I do not believe they have a god given right to spout their hate by opening post after post with stupid loaded titles!
I may start one called "Have you stopped beating your wife and children yet?"
Xena was the one who taught me how to raise my right eyebrow I could only raise my left and now I can raise my right too lmao my mom think it's so cool I can do that, raise the left put it down raise the right hahaha
Lol...I guess I missed the part when ryan got banned...so I guess I don't know the whole story, but it seems to me that everybody is super fired up! I chose to agree with my favorite hubbers, as I have no knowledge of the situation and say...Rock on BadCo! Rock on!
What are the boundaries? - If I say in my webpage Humor and Jokes... "...There are religious jokes, actually 1 Jewish joke & 3 Christian jokes, so no Muslims will be offended - In this way, I hope to...
Just an idea I'm tossing out there. How about HP declaring on Monday a blanket forum amnesty for all forum-banned Hubbers?I'm saying Monday so that HP has the weekend to mull the idea over.I am not suggesting any...
Its just like the topic says. I'm kind of a rookie in this whole Hub thing. So far, I like the Religion forum, but there's a lot of people you just wanna smack in the head. If you're non-religious, then what in the hell...
