BIBLE

Postby TheeTFD » Tue Nov 21, 2017 2:01 pm

I get fliers usually from churches with messages from the Lord.
This, from a Baptist Church caught my attention:
Many people think they can live a good life and God will take them into Heaven.
Isaiah (64:6)
God says, "all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags.
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man boast. Ephesians (2:8,9)
*
So I live by the 10 Commandments and try to be decent to my follow man. And that's not good enough ?
Of course I have sinned and want to be forgiven for those.
*
The bible goes on to say because I have sinned I will die. (Romans 5:12)
"For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil" (Ecclesiastes 12:14)
*
Sounds like contradiction to me.
I say from my heart and my mouth I believe in the Lord and his son that died for us.
BUT as of now I live in the Lords world rife with inequality and carnal temptations and do as a man of flesh will do.
And I won't pretend that I go into this with my eyes shut !

I was bullied
-
And I bullied to some extent.
At age 14 or so, I was dead inside.
Had become lazy and quit on life. [couldn't deal with a loveless household]
So a guy took a piece of bread off my lunch plate.
One guy I could've handled easy but he brought a backup.
I just blew it off. I didn't even think to get a teacher.
===--- Philippians 1:27-28 ---===

Only behave* in a manner worthy of the good news about the Christ, so that whether I come and see you or I am absent, I may hear about you and learn that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one soul, striving side by side for the faith of the good news, 28 and in no way being frightened by your opponents. This very thing is a proof of destruction for them, but of salvation for you; and this is from God. 29
----------------------
Violence settles issues in this carnal world. Sometimes only a punch is necessary.
Though God had answered me once, I don't think I lived in his grace back then.
This "turn the other cheek" attitude doesn't work always for men.
I felt shame later for not "establishing" my place in that community. [as no one to trifle with]
