What are the 10 things that Jesus would say to highly condemning and judgmental,
more fundamentalistic and rigid Christians?
How about what Jesus actually said. In Revelation Jesus personally addresses 7 churches in the Middle East, commending most and condemning all but the Church of Philadelphia. Jesus had no word of condemnation for Philadelphia. When you look closely at why He was so pleased, you realize He was pleased because of their faithful Fundamentalism ! And of their being overcomers !
"And to the angel (messengers) of the assembly (church) in Philadelphia write: these are the words of the Holy One, the True One, He Who has the key of David, Who opens and no one shall shut, Who who shuts and no one shall open: I know of your record of works and what you are doing. See! I have set before you a door wide open which no one is able to shut. I know that you have but little power, and yet you have kept My Word and guarded My message, and have not renounced or denied My name."
"Take note! I will make those of the synagogue of Satan who say they are Jews and are not, but lie -- behold I will make them come and bow down before your feet and learn and acknowledge that I have loved you. Because you have guarded and kept My word of patient endurance [have held fast the lesson of My patience with the expectant endurance that I give you.] I will also keep you [safe] from the hour of trial [testing] which is coming on the whole world to try those who dwell upon the earth." [This is the Rapture]
"I am coming quickly; hold fast what you have, so that no one may rob you and deprive you of your crown. He who overcomes [is victorious] I will make him a pillar in the sanctuary of My God; he shall never write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the new Jerusalem, which descends from My God out of heaven and My own new name." [Revelation 3:7-12; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]
Note carefully what our Lord Jesus Christ is commending the Church of Philadelphia for doing, i.e., He was commending them for "guarding" His "message" and "keeping His Word"! This is the essence of the Fundamental Churches today, and the reason they are so detested by the Liberal Protestant "Christian" churches of today. They are being detested by the supporters of the coming New World Order Religion for the very reason the Lord Jesus commended the Philadelphians! The time has come to decide by whom it is we want to be ultimately commended, Jesus Christ or the Liberals busily building the Church of Antichrist. People who have no clue what Jesus would say.
Really Jesus speaks for himself ,he is living not in the flesh . But in the heavenly Realm in a spirit body.. But he wanted people who agree with the provisions set out , to take it serious, he experience pain and death for many not in vain. I think many people understand , Some people will be extreme in how they feel about what has been done for us. ,But it des not change what is the truth, many people are comfortable with their life styles of choice. We are not to throw stones at each other. But we are certainly not to compromise bible law and written morals. This is what happened to Adam an Eve ,Satan also try to get Jesus to compromise to make him think it was ok to use his power to please hisself. by turning stones into bread because he said it was ok, Jesus decline ,he is still using the same skemes to get humans to use the power they have for their own pleasure against the Heavenly Father. Yes we can do many things with our bodies, I always try to use the example of a wepeon ,just because we have possession of one ,does that make it right to use it as one please? Does it make it right to take other life's because we do not like some one. This hold true with our bodies ,we can do many things with them. How can we show appreciation for this gift .we will not mistreat it's power or use nor allow others to get between what is right and wrong. this is the real tests in life. Not what people chose to be their test.
1) Judge not lest ye be judged
2) First remove that log out of your own eye
3) Love one another
4) The goodness of God leads to repentance
5) All have sinned and fallen short of God’s glory
6) Love covers a multitude of sin
7) Love is kind, patient believes the best, and keeps no record of wrongs
8) There is one God and judge and before Him we all stand or fall
9) By grace we are saved and it is not of ourselves
10) Mercy triumphs over justice
Well, my Sweet Friend,
Counting is of the mind and God-men really live in the Soul. They are like cute and sweet children. The Christ may scold us, yes, and feel sad because of what we do, but is invariably forgiving. You really, and me too, should feel very happy with this, as without forgiveness, we won't last a single day!
We judge so many times, and have been doing this for eons. Through prayer and Grace, we gradually improve, but each Soul must fight its own struggles.
True, fundamentals are by nature people who see things in a narrow way. Still, we cannot change this world as it is neither mine nor yours. I repeat that each Soul has it's own burdens, and God is by nature forgiving and so once the necessary lesson is learned, the Soul will move on.
You and I can best help by leading exemplary lives, and inspiring good deeds. So many people are turning to motivation, self-coaching and positive books these days. Because we all want to be lifted, we wish for the inner Light to shine. The enemy, if there be one, is always inside us, not outside. I can only hope this helps.
I try to serve. I have prayed and meditated every day for the last 31 years. I feel that Love is all and most scriptures seem to support me here. Still, this is only one perception, I know. I strive to let good deeds speak through Grace.
Best comment, eh? So the best comment to the question 'What are the 10 things that Jesus would say" is a comment that says nothing that Jesus would say but offers only platitudes - the question should have been "impress me with your platitudes."

The book of Revelation; Is it already happening?I have been reading and listening to the book since I woke up today -- My question is, has some of it already taken place? If so, where were we at right now? I know we haven't reached the mark of the beast. I believe that to be some form of technology...

Since I´m not very familiar with the folklore, and there seem to be quite a few ¨experts¨ here, I thought I´d ask.According to the storyline, Lucifer was the ¨highest of the high¨ or something to that effect. So, I guess that at some point, Lucifer must have had a higher ranking than Jesus....

Why are there so many churches?In a neighboring city there is a population of 9000 and there are 126 churches. Isn't this excessive and a waste of money(for the rents and building costs)? What's the point in having so many.
