We have never had such a selfish, hedonistic generation as the one we live in today.
Through the ages each generation swears they were better than the ones that have followed them and this might explain a lot of what is going on. Where is the world headed if this is true?
Much like a bad or coddling parent, if we decide to turn our heads away every time our fellow citizens do the wrong thing, what does this tell them and others? That we are weak? That we simply don’t care? That these others are better than the rest of the population? Whatever any society allows or promotes effects everyone in that society so with that in mind, does any one group of people deserve to force their views on the rest of their culture who don’t share the same belief?
I’ve noticed that the liberal minority only believes this when the belief is that of Jesus being the Savior of the world. Then it’s wrong to shove peace and love in the rest of the world’s face. Yeah, right, but the gay agenda is fun for the whole family, those beliefs are forced on everyone and that’s OK for some reason.
I guess I’m wondering when will all the selfish demands by a select few stop? If they get their way, does this not encourage others with even stranger, more unreasonable or even dangerous demands?
Is anyone else concerned with our world’s current trajectory?
Most have rejected the teachings of Christ in this world. Many of us still continue to follow the theology that we grew up with and I understand this. I for one only decided to follow Christ as a much older person. I was taught a few Sunday school stories before I even entered school, but was never really in the Word until much later. I knew the Golden Rule and never had a problem following this my entire life.
I’m a firm believer that it is enough if people were to just follow the basic teaching of treating others the way they wish to be treated, this is exactly what God has in mind when Jesus told his followers if they loved Him, they would keep His commandments. A commandment is not a suggestion, it is a command. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and one another in the same way. When you keep the commandment of love, you won’t commit any of the sins the Ten Commandments cover.
Why do so many people want to live in a world without love?
Why do so many hate and fear Jesus?
I know that demons hate and fear Jesus and that’s a fact so what does that say about those here on earth right now who feel the same way? Should that not tell everyone about the state of their souls?
I understand that some are raised with completely different religious beliefs so they wouldn’t get Him but it does not explain the mindset of the lost that float or tear through their lives, as well as other’s lives, with a “don’t tell me what to do” attitude scoffing at someone who gave His life to save the world if they would only believe. Believe in love.
I always wondered how so many cannot see the obvious, the absolute truth of what Jesus said and did and the fact that this world will not stand unless they obey His commandment of love.
Every time you see disrespect or abuse, there is no love. They say the opposite of love is indifference, but I beg to differ. If you are indifferent, you will leave someone alone. Now a mother who leaves a young child alone would in fact not love, but in most cases the opposite of love is unreasoned hatred. Those that despise and try to ruin the innocent and good simply because they exist. Now that’s evil and evil is diametrically opposed to love.
God is love so where there is no love, there is a Godless, barren and dangerous place.
Sounds good, doesn’t it? Maybe to most of you.
Sounds completely insane to me.
Do you think that completely evil, soulless people care what you think or say?
Of course not.
This is the very reason that Jesus told the people that loved him to keep His commandment of love. He said to spread this gospel of peace and love to all corners of the world.
The liberals have made it their life’s mission to take the very Words of God out of our public buildings, take prayer out of school and some of the ignorant say “God is dead,” like that can happen. They have rejected and mocked the Words of Christ, yet they are so insane as to demand that “devils” now obey God’s law. The liberals don’t even do this. They may not kidnap girls en masse but to coddle bad behavior and lack of self-control in others does not bring out anyone’s best. Weak people with no faith do not have the power to command evil to bend. Remember that.
Jesus had power over evil spirits and spoke of the house well swept. People that do not fill their hearts with love and the Word risk it being filled with something else less wholesome. Sometimes worse than network TV with its bad examples and evil acts.
Shame on anyone who can find fault with those who teach love, heal and help others. Shame on those who mock and break commandments thinking they are better than God. Shame on the liberals of Christ’s time called Pharisees who tried to appear helpful and holy and were anything but.
How unfair is it not to warn others of the impending doom their actions may bring to themselves once their time here on earth comes to an end. There actually is a method to the supposed madness some have in their faith.
“You have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.” Matthew 5:38-39
I am all for loving your brother and forgiveness. I do not hold grudges and have malice towards none, even if they really piss me off and I do think they are terrible people. I know that sooner or later it all comes out in the wash, or it doesn’t, I really don’t care. Just don’t mess with me. I know that I am no better than my enemies when I only love those that are good to me but I don’t like people that hurt me. I realize that you cannot love evil people dearly but you can have compassion and forgiveness if they ask for it. You do not have to get even.
If nobody ever forgave, everyone would try to get even and this is why the world keeps fighting even though they know better. The ones that don’t want to follow the commandments of God simply begin their own religions and expect that they will be taken seriously. You can believe anything you want, but for me and my house we will serve the Lord. We will believe the truth when it is self evident. I know Jesus is the son of God for how he lived and what he could do beyond the resurrection. If everyone refuses to say they are sorry or forgive an injustice and demands payment for a sin, it will continue to man’s final blood bath because it can only escalate in hatred and anger.
In this teaching, Dr Martin Luther King Jr said, “The old law of an eye for an eye leaves everybody blind. It is immoral because it seeks to humiliate the opponent rather than win his understanding. It seeks to annihilate rather than to convert.” This is the problem with the world leaders including America. To pretend to be Christian and then go out to slaughter your enemies in retaliation to their evil, is complete hypocrisy and very sad to me because if you really do have a relationship with Jesus, you could not do this. Jesus told his disciples that if they loved him, they will keep his commandments. They will love one another because to not keep this commandment means the end of the world.
