contending that their religiosity makes them morally superior people, even going as far as refusing to acknowledge that there are religionists who hide behind their religion to excuse their evil acts?
sort by best latest
"..to challenge a belief illicists an illogical often angry response, resulting in religious tensions."
God KNEW this would occur & told believers to (I Pet 3:15) "..answer EVERY MAN that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you..."
Answering a hope is not debating or judging , for a truth stands rather people believe it or not debating it does not change reality.
But the point is when a question is directed to you you can answer your resolve.
God is the Judge of his matter.
K&T: U don't speak TRUTH! GOD is not pleased w/ur "interpretation" of HIS WORD!(Amos 5:14-15) How can you hate the evil and love the good if you refuse to judge? You can't. You are SINNING when you REFUSE to judge. Why I'm here! READ those Script
Norine you mis the scriptures that says stop!
Lu 6:37“Moreover, stop judging, and you will by no means be judged; and stop condemning, and you will by no means be condemned.Keep on forgiving,and you will be forgiven
Mt 7:1 also is clear.
You do both
K&T: Do "I" judge or do I give HIS WORD & IT judges? Matt 7:1 Judge "righteous" judgment" which is HIS WORD ONLY! Not what I think (then I'd be judging) but HIS WORD (then HE judges)! Same for Luke 6:37! He works thru us, using HIS WORD (n
I find it interesting that all the answers and comments come from the 33% of the humans that are Christians, they appear to assume any mention of belief is aimed at them and needs defending
Ag: When "religion" is involved what we blv (Bible) tells us to do so. I Peter 3:15 says "...be ready ALWAYS to given any answer to EVERY MAN (blvr or not) that asketh u a reason of the hope that is n you.." But they delete! Expected response (LOL)!
WE "ALL" MUST STAND BEFORE THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST" and HE DOESN'T FORGET!
(Luke 16:8) Unbelievers APPEAR "..wiser than the sons of light." Yes, "carnally!" Let's see who has the last laugh!
Gift of "discernment" is alive & well!
Prime example of "Millennium Christian!" Soothe sayings (kindness) but not TRUTH! Heb 4:12 TRUTH (WORD) "..hurts..!" If it (TRUTH) doesn't offend, either not a sinner or bothers conscience & becomes defensive!
some truth spoken ,Norine but are we in the position to say who is and who is not through the Internet you do not know the whole soul and thoughts and heart condition of humans, true you have some knowledge of the bible but not fit to Judge others
K&T: Have u read bible re: judging? Ps37:30;Amos5:14;Is 59:8; I Cor1:10; 2:15; 6:1-5; Rm16:17-18; IITim3:5-6; I Jn4:1; Mal3:18;Rev2:2; I Kg 3:9; Prov 24:23;Jer5:1; Jn7:24 "righteous" w/WORD; Is 8:20. "Do u know we will judge angels?"
Norine the point when using God's words is help people
Not judge their situation, like a doctor you can not judge all ailments the same, nore the cure all people are not no matter what they believe. NOTICE
2Ti 2:15 Do your utmost
K&T: Who taught u this? Not HIS WORD! Why go against HIS WORD to prove u r right? Not about us-but HIM! He said so, u do r blaspheming against Holy Spirit (JESUS)!
Norine Who blaspheme is not your calling or judgment.
Why do you set yourself above God deciding who has done wrong In his name. Let Jehovah be the Judge of what I do and I will give you the same respect.
Because we both are imperfect.
Both "imperfect" - I AGREE! (II Cor 3:18="chging!") Just "repeating" & "reminding" what HE SAID! Judge in Bible! Did u rd? WORD "judges" not blvrs! WORD defines "blasphemy" also "slanderous or INJURIOUS TO ONE"S GOOD NAME!" LYING on HIM! Do utm
Norine, I looked up half of the versus you cited in ur 2nd comment, and most of them don't speak of judgement. The two that I looked which do suggest that a saint judges others.
Why do you cite irrelevant versus and, do you claim yourself a saint?
RL: LYING re: HIS WORD blasphemes against Holy Spirit (aka "Our Father!") Read I Timothy 5:20 which says "REBUKE" (sin) = "JUDGE" (righteously=WORD) Say that ONE LIES ALSO! Remember 2 Cor 5:10 "WE MUST ALL STAND BEFORE THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST!"
