Posted on 10/03/2011 9:24:36 AM PDT by jesus4life
Grace and peace to all of you. I am very new to this site. The holy spirit brought me hear tonight to look over many answers here. To learn and to share.
I have questions here if anyone would be kind to take the time out to answer:
1. If we want evil to stop, why do speak of where it is, how to see it, where to see it, and when it may happen?
2. Do we really believe GOD sees all things and will handle all things?
3. If we revere Mary as the mother of GOD, why do we not copy her obedience??
4. If we believe in CHRIST as the son of GOD, who killed no one, loved everyone, and died for all. Why do we worry about dying?? Why do we want to kill others?? Why do we hate others? Why do we want to own land, take over other countries? Why do we want to judge others faith, walk, and lives before they die, knowing that GOD has power to save and can save anyone?
5. Do we believe heaven exists?? If so, where is it for all of you??
The holy spirit brought me to some passages for all of us to think about:
The love of Christ that we should live and show the world LUKE 6:27-36
27 'But I say this to you who are listening: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who treat you badly. 29 To anyone who slaps you on one cheek, present the other cheek as well; to anyone who takes your cloak from you, do not refuse your tunic. 30 Give to everyone who asks you, and do not ask for your property back from someone who takes it. 31 Treat others as you would like people to treat you. 32 If you love those who love you, what credit can you expect? Even sinners love those who love them. 33 And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit can you expect? For even sinners do that much. 34 And if you lend to those from whom you hope to get money back, what credit can you expect? Even sinners lend to sinners to get back the same amount. 35 Instead, love your enemies and do good to them, and lend without any hope of return. You will have a great reward, and you will be children of the Most High, for he himself is kind to the ungrateful and the wicked. 36 'Be compassionate just as your Father is compassionate.
Mary's love, obedience, and acceptance that we should all follow in situations that GOD can handle that we cant
29 She was deeply disturbed by these words and asked herself what this greeting could mean, 30 but the angel said to her, 'Mary, do not be afraid; you have won God's favour. 31 Look! You are to conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you must name him Jesus. 32 He will be great and will be called Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his ancestor David; 33 he will rule over the House of Jacob for ever and his reign will have no end.' 34 Mary said to the angel, 'But how can this come about, since I have no knowledge of man?' 35 The angel answered, 'The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will cover you with its shadow. And so the child will be holy and will be called Son of God. 36 And I tell you this too: your cousin Elizabeth also, in her old age, has conceived a son, and she whom people called barren is now in her sixth month, 37 for nothing is impossible to God.' 38 Mary said, 'You see before you the Lord's servant, let it happen to me as you have said.' And the angel left her. 39 Mary set out at that time and went as quickly as she could into the hill country to a town in Judah.
OUR LIVES HERE MARK 8:29-38
27 Jesus and his disciples left for the villages round Caesarea Philippi. On the way he put this question to his disciples, 'Who do people say I am?' 28 And they told him, 'John the Baptist, others Elijah, others again, one of the prophets.' 29 'But you,' he asked them, 'who do you say I am?' Peter spoke up and said to him, 'You are the Christ.' 30 And he gave them strict orders not to tell anyone about him. 31 Then he began to teach them that the Son of man was destined to suffer grievously, and to be rejected by the elders and the chief priests and the scribes, and to be put to death, and after three days to rise again; 32 and he said all this quite openly. Then, taking him aside, Peter tried to rebuke him. 33 But, turning and seeing his disciples, he rebuked Peter and said to him, 'Get behind me, Satan! You are thinking not as God thinks, but as human beings do.' 34 He called the people and his disciples to him and said, 'If anyone wants to be a follower of mine, let him renounce himself and take up his cross and follow me. 35 Anyone who wants to save his life will lose it; but anyone who loses his life for my sake, and for the sake of the gospel, will save it. 36 What gain, then, is it for anyone to win the whole world and forfeit his life? 37 And indeed what can anyone offer in exchange for his life? 38 For if anyone in this sinful and adulterous generation is ashamed of me and of my words, the Son of man will also be ashamed of him when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.'
OUR REAL HOME Revelations 21:1-8 1 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; the first heaven and the first earth had disappeared now, and there was no longer any sea. 2 I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride dressed for her husband. 3 Then I heard a loud voice call from the throne, 'Look, here God lives among human beings. He will make his home among them; they will be his people, and he will be their God, God-with-them. 4 He will wipe away all tears from their eyes; there will be no more death, and no more mourning or sadness or pain. The world of the past has gone.' 5 Then the One sitting on the throne spoke. 'Look, I am making the whole of creation new. Write this, "What I am saying is trustworthy and will come true." 6 Then he said to me, 'It has already happened. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give water from the well of life free to anybody who is thirsty; 7 anyone who proves victorious will inherit these things; and I will be his God and he will be my son. 8 But the legacy for cowards, for those who break their word, or worship obscenities, for murderers and the sexually immoral, and for sorcerers, worshippers of false gods or any other sort of liars, is the second death in the burning lake of sulphur.'
Wow! Pure unadulterated law with little/no Grace!
The Froman Catholic’s will no doubt canonize you.
Thanks but is there a point you’re attempting to reach? That question is always the first in my mind. If there is, What is it? and if not, Why not?
I think you are misinterpretting not only people’s motivations for their actions, but sometimes thier actions as well.
And there is very little in the bible about Mary other than God blessed her by choosing her to be Christ’s mother. Jesus had no partiality toward her that I see anywhere in His Word.
But the general answer to your question is that we are all fallen sinners and prove every day that we NEED the blood of Christ for our salvation, no matter how hard we try to be “good”.

Welcome to FR.
Could you translate that question please?
Are you logged in?
Do you have a newsletter we can all subscribe too? And do you live in a yurt we can all flock too? And finally, how many yard statues of Mary do you have on your premisis?
To build houses, grow grass, put up swingsets, grow crops, graze cattle.
Is this Econ 101?
Must be they’re on a roll...five in one day! and nada before. But they lost me on the mary issue...always a stop sign indicating they’re already misguided.
If you notice he does copy and paste better. I suspect a handicap.
But seriously, I see questions (only some of which make sense) and Scripture quotations. How do you get "pure unadulterated law with little/no Grace" out of questions and Scripture quotations?
Do you believe the Church of the Living God is the pillar and ground of the truth?
Do you believe God’s Word is THE FINAL AUTHORITY?
I can understand typos but poorly worded questions are not a physical issue.
The question made no sense as it was worded. Even the premise was odd.... that of *If we want evil to stop....*
Well, yeah, all of us would like that but it’s not going to until God intervenes, so even the premise is pointless. If the question were to be, *What do we do about evil?* that would be a different matter.
Did someone forget Sodom and Gomorrah? The first born of Egypt? How about the inhabitants of Canaan?
It never ceases to amaze me how little people fail to connect the God of the Old Testament with the God of the New. They have little understanding of scripture and the exact character and nature of God. It is an entirely made up god. One might as well put up a golden calf and say, "Here is your god."
BTW-Correctly me if I'm wrong but the Lord Jesus never called Mary his "mother". I believe he always referred to her as "woman".
FWIW, it's because the Marian Cult has successfully convinced people the only way to think about Jesus Christ is as the little baby on Mary's lap, or on the Cross. They never think of his pre-incarnate form, or even the Christ who threw the money changers out of the Temple.
