Show a little love
« on: December 30, 2008, 06:50:29 PM »

    Hello Ray,
                   Greetings from the the church in my house here in the UK. I have as yourself no so called official theological training etc i am but a simple gardener, but i know i have the spirit of God. Now in what i say i do not wish to offend you my brother, whilst browsing some of the emails and responses on your site i came across the following comment in reply to an email.
     
    "Perhaps you really don't know what you are talking about, Michael." - Your reply to an email.
     
    As i am sure you are aware we are to expose the lies and false teachers, and i fully agree with you on this point, many are confused and molded by religion instead of God's spirit, holding their rituals etc of more value than the pure word of God and the indwelling spirit which will guide us into all truth.
     
    I simply ask you brother to consider showing a  little love in your guidance of the lost, We have both received abundant mercy from God and the Lord Jesus Christ.
     
    I hope i have in no way offended you my brother.
     
    May God continue to bless you in all your ways.
     
    Brother Adrian
     
    Dear Adrian:  Thank you for your email and comments. And no, of course you do not offend me, as I know you are suggesting this in sincerity. I have however,  received hundreds of such emails (almost exclusively from orthodox Christians) admonishing me to not be "...FILLED with such venomous, anger, hatred and tearing down of others..."  To which I answer: "I am not at all filled with anger, hatred or venom, and neither do I "tear down others."  And I usually show them in my answer exactly how Jesus answered and treated those who tried to contradict Him because "despising the Word of God."
     
    It seems to be offensive to you that I made the statement "You don't know what you are talking about, Michael."  I never answer a sincere inquiry with such a statement, only when someone is of a wrong or mean spirit (Luk 9:55 But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, "Ye know not what [because of what they had just 'SAID'--in other words: "you don't know what your are TALKING about'] manner of spirit ye are of") when they confront me..  Are you offended at the way Jesus used this very same language?
     
    In Mar 12:24, Jesus answering said unto them, "Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures [this is Jesus' answer to what they "SAID" in verse 23--in other words, 'You don't know what you are talking about...'], neither the power of God?"  Are Jesus' words offensive to you here as well?
     
    Notice Mar 10:38 "But Jesus said unto them, Ye know not what ye ask [you don't know what you are talking about--asking is talking]: can ye drink of the cup that I drink of? and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized

    And Jesus wasn't the only one who accused people of "not knowing what they were talking about:  Jud 1:10 But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.

    I have thought long and hard for years on how I write and answer those who contradict. Here then is the list of things I usually include for those who think my heart and spirit are wrong in answering and writing as I do.

     

    JESUS UPBRAIDS THE CHURCH LEADERS

    There are many examples of Jesus upbraiding the Church leaders for their gross sins [selections from Matthew 23]:

        "But WOE unto you, Scribes and Pharisees, HYPOCRITES… FOR YOU SHUT UP THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN AGAINST MEN…

        …THEY BIND HEAVY BURDENS and GRIEVOUS to be borne, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but will not move them with ONE OF THEIR FINGERS

        WOE unto you, Scribes and Pharisees, HYPOCRITES… you DEVOUR WIDOW’S HOUSES… you shall receive the greater damnation.

        WOE unto you, Scribes and Pharisees, HYPOCRITES…

        WOE unto you, ye BLIND GUIDES…

        You FOOLS AND BLIND…

        You FOOLS AND BLIND…

        WOE unto you, Scribes and Pharisees, HYPOCRITES! You… have omitted… JUDGMENT, MERCY, and FAITH…

        You BLIND GUIDES, which strain out a gnat, and SWALLOW A CAMEL.

        WOE unto you, Scribes and Pharisees, HYPOCRITES… within they are full of EXTORTION AND EXCESS.

        You BLIND PHARISEES…

        WOE unto you, Scribes and Pharisees, HYPOCRITES! You are FULL OF DEAD MEN’S BONES, and ALL UNCLEANESS… and HYPOCRISY and INIQUITY…

        WOE unto you, Scribes and Pharisees, HYPOCRITES!… you are the children of them which KILLED the prophets. FILL YOU UP then the measure of your fathers.

        You SERPENTS, you GENERATION OF SNAKES… you KILL AND CRUCIFY… you SCOURGE in your synagogues… Behold your house is left unto you DESOLATE"!!

    WOW! Every one of these comments from Matt. 23 were spoken directly to the "Religious Scholars and Theologians" in the Church of God centered at the Temple in Jerusalem. Would Jesus speak in the same manner to the Religious Scholars and Theologians in God’s Church today? Does Jesus "change"? NO. Has the Church changed in the past 2000 years? YES. It has gotten WORSE." [From: "YOU FOOLS;  YOU HYPOCRITES;  YOU SNAKES']

    Had you witnessed this upbraiding of the Pharisees by Jesus, do you really think that you would have gone up to Jesus and suggested He, "consider showing a  little love in your guidance of the lost"?

    If saying that Michael didn't know what he was talking about is offensive to you, I am pretty sure you will not want to read my up-coming articles:

    23 MINUTES IN HELL by Bill Weise [The Ultimate Christian Pornography]

    I guarantee you I will not mince words in this paper.  I will expose this Christian Swill and this lying turkey in language few have ever heard me use before!  I recently told my Web Master that it is time we take the gloves off when dealing with these Christian heresies and most wicked of all sins on earth!

    God be with you,

    Ray
