I am very saddened by all the radicals judging everyone so harshly lately!!
This of course leads me to...
Today's words of wisdom:
"He who is without sin, cast the first stone!"
This means, who is anyone to be judge of another. Who can say this person is wrong and that person is this or that? everyone has committed sin and will continue to commit sin until they learn to be absolutely SELFLESS. And for that my friend, you will need to be born again many times over until you become like mother Teresa or Ghandi.
See look at the difference between the post of a spiritist Christian vs a post of a radicle Christian. We spiritist encourage learning, growing, love, peace, harmony, sympathy, charity and so forth. Because those are the example of Our lord. We do not encourage sin but we will not discourage the ways of The Lord by judging and offending others. That only pushed people away. Jesus was perfect and the only thing he ever got upset about was the people pushing religion on others. He never talked down to a prostitute, thief, murderer, or even judas who he knew would betray him, he only reprimanded those who judged and pointed fingers.
Radicle Christians, that's all they do. Point fingers, insult, murmur, tell people they are going to hell. Why????
Focusing on the negative only results in negative. Spreading the lords love and light is more important than pointing fingers.
“Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
“You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people's feet. “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
I have many more my friends
- Jesus spoke of reincarnation. The entire bible did. Just look.
When Nicodemus came to warn Jesus in
John 3:3, 7. “Unless anyone is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Do not marvel because I told you, You people must be born again.”
Malachi 4:5,6 Look! I am sending to you E·liʹjah the prophet before the coming of the great and awe-inspiring day of Jehovah And he will turn the hearts of fathers back toward sons and the hearts of sons back toward fathers, so that I may not come and strike the earth, devoting it to destruction.”
Matthew 11:13, 14.
For all, the Prophets and the Law, prophesied until John . . . He himself is ‘Elijah who is destined to come.’”
The idea that John the Baptist was Elijah, and the prophets could revive the earth, is in many passages of the Gospels, especially in out above (paragraph 1-3). If this belief was a mistake, Jesus would still fight it, as he did with so many others. Far from it, however, he signed with all their authority, and became a principle, making it necessary, when he said: No one can see the Kingdom of God unless he is born again. And he insisted, adding: Marvel not that I have said that it is necessary to be born again.
These words: "If you is born of water and the Spirit" were interpreted in the sense of regeneration by water baptism. But the original text simply says: Not born of water and of the Spirit, while in some translations, the term was replaced by the Spirit of the Holy Ghost, which does not correspond to the same thought. This point underscores the capital of the first comments made about the Gospel, as well as one day be found unequivocally possible. (1)
To understand the true meaning of these words, it is necessary to report the meaning of the word, which was not used in its specific sense. The ancients had imperfect knowledge about the physical sciences, and believed that the Earth was out of the water. Therefore, the water regarded as the absolute generating element. Thus we find in Genesis: "The Spirit of God was carried upon the waters", "floating on water", "the sky is in the midst of the waters," which the waters under the heaven come together in one place and that the element appears arid "," the waters produce living creatures that swim in the water, and birds flying over the earth and under the firmament. "
According to this belief, the water had become the symbol of material nature, as the Spirit was the intelligent nature. These words: "If a man born of water and the Spirit," or "water and Spirit", it means: "If a man be born again with the body and soul." In this sense it is understood they were in the beginning.
This interpretation is justified, moreover, by these other words: "That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit." Jesus makes a distinction here between the positive spirit and the body. "That which is born of the flesh is flesh," clearly indicates that the body carries only the body, and that the Spirit is independent of it.
"The Spirit blows where it wills, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes," is a passage that can be understood by the Spirit of God who gives life to whom he will, or the soul of man. In this last sense, the sequence: "but do not know where it comes from or where it goes," means that we do not know what was or what will be the Spirit. If, on the contrary, the spirit or soul, was created with the body, we would know where he comes from, because we would know its beginning. In any case, this passage is the consecration of the principle of the preexistence of the soul, and therefore of the plurality of existences.
Since the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven is taken by force, and those who do violence are those who snatch. For all the prophets and the law, until John prophesied. And if ye will ye understand well, he is Elijah who is to come. He who has ears to hear, let him hear. " (Matthew, XI: 12-15)
Did you also know that language in those days were so limited that words had different meanings. For instance
- Was / Is now
Camel / rope
Water / earth
Demon / genius/intelligence
Let me explain:
It is only in its modern acceptation that the word demon implies the idea of evil spirits, for the Greek work daimôn from which it is derived, signifies genius, intelligence, and is applied indiscriminately to all incorporeal beings, whether good or bad.
