I have noticed that many people who claim to hold the love of Christ will speak to others in a judgmental and disrespectful manner. Others seem to come from a place of love and acceptance. What does the Bible say on the matter, how should Christians speak, and is that the way that you speak?

. What you were saying about love is very true. We all seem to have different opinions of what Biblical love is. The Bible also directs believers to rebuke other believers when needed. How does that factor in do you think?
The Greek roots actually define: “ to honor; to admonish; to esteem, place value properly, or to warn by instructing to prevent something from going wrong; to place due weight/honor upon.” It's not pointing out others' sins. Space to say more gone.
I like that definition.
He is "gentle & meek" when 1 adheres to His Word! How about His reaction when buying & selling in Temple? Was He "meek & lowly?"
I do not see how this relates to the question. Could you elaborate?

I didn't see it, and I needed a place where everybody could speak openly. What is your opinion on the matter?
I deleted you answer by accident, as I meant to click the comment link, but I can't help feeling that this question is an attack on me. All I see here are two big babies.
I am happy to hear that it was an accident SoM. This is not meant as an attack I am sorry it came across that way. I am actually working on a hub on this topic and I want some different opinions to consider.
Look at the two of you chatting it up about me. J is a liar. He was the first one to delete my comments and he has a short memory. We both agreed to stop commenting on the other's hubs and questions and he continues to troll me.
Wouldn't it be possible for both of you to agree to refrain from deleting one anthers posts, and from saying anything about each others character?Maybe just stick to talking about whatever the topic is?
No caly, because I am not interested in anything he has to say. Sadly because you seem to bring him into the topic. I will miss our discussions. Peace out to both of you.
Sorry may I ask for clarification before you leave the conversation? What do you mean by bring him into the topic?
When ever I post a question, he responds knowing that I delete them as fast as I see them. He continues to post comments and it pisses me off and he knows it. Then you wonder why I get mad and say the things I do about him. its pathedic.
I understand how frustrating that is. I think it is likely frustrating on both sides. What do you mean by I bring him into it though?
When you attack my frustrations and give me direction, It turns me off. What you dont know is that I dont take direction from determined hell believers. If you can leave him out of the discussion, I am open to start up again with you.
That is something that frustrates me. I am not a determined "Hell Believer". I am a scripture believer and I am trying to do my best to understand scripture. That means my views are developing as I learn more. They are not set in stone.
That is one thing I know about believing. when you believe in something, it doesn't mean its the truth because you may believe in something different tomorrow. I apoligize for assuming you are a determined hell believer.
SOM.... I am not a liar and do not appreciate your continued bashing of my character. I have not deleted your comments and have never made ANY type of deal with you. You are the one with a huge ego problem and also the one acting like a spoiled child
Thank you for the apology SoM. I will back out of the issue between you and J, I think I have said all I can or should say. I would like for us to continue our discussions as I think we can learn from each other.
Please do not delete my comments Caly. :) God bless you always!!
Caly, I just posted a question about divine judgement and hell. You are more than welcome to express your opinion :)
I do not delete comments. (Except that one time by accident :s) I want discussion to be as open and informative as possible. So your comments will remain J :p
I agree J, but often people get confused about what that love looks like. It seems we all have our own definition of love when we should all be in accordance with His definition.
Caly.. We are to love everyone, including Non-Christians. This is what the Bible tells me to do so I strive to do it. To set things straight, I did not make an agreement with S. He's not being truthful. He is only saying that to hide his hateful acts
I am inclined to believe you. My entire answer was just deleted for my rebuke. I just wish that text could convey emotion better.
I would not be untruthful about something so petty Caly. Now he has done the same to you. You did not deserve it!
Oh well I knew it was coming :P
