Which religion should I convert to?
Njoy Try to understand Paul. He was a leader, he had his methods of command. His persona , or how he was use to doing things. . Having power given to him by Rome then understanding power personally he used whatever means he thought it would work to spread the word. He felt guilty for persecuting Christians and at the same time new he had to make up for all the grief he caused others. Paul never did live with Christ, never had the opportunity to understand the patience of Christ. He basically got knocked on his butt and knew what he was doing was wrong. Then of course along comes Peter to help him out. To talk to him, to make him understand what he was doing and what he had to do. It was not over night that Paul learned what Christ was all about. It was in an instant that he new he was doing wrong but it took time to find out why he was wrong. Paul, rightly or wrongly used the methods that he understood to work. He was dedicated to Christ/God and he used every passion he possessed to spread the word. After all, if a voice from out of the sky tells you in front of others that you are wrong in what you are doing, don’t you think you would have given it a good hard look , I know I would.
Paul was as he always was, a leader. Paul lead by example with conviction and tenacity. That is what he was use to. Because Paul was a leader you can accuse him of using his power for gain. I say he used his knowledge of power to promote acceptance of Christ. Remember, the life of Saul was much better off than the life of Paul. Paul’s influence in the eyes of Roman and the Jewish power diminished completely and he was even feared by Christians who knew who he was. Having what Paul had, giving everything up for Christ. Now that takes faith ! Not politics.
My Dear Friends;
I think we are getting back to a rational discussion of our faiths. Hope so, as this makes more sense, and all are welcome.
You ask me whom I think of as a good example of a Good Christian, I have to mention Ray Charles. What he endured, and being physically blind on top of it all, he was one of the most loving, accepting humans I have known. I never heard one negative word passed his lips.
Ray and Willie Nelson performed together often. I thought they were a good pair. In fact, they even played chess together.
One night Willie mentioned this, that they had played just before the show. Someone from the audeance asked; "Who won?"
Willie said "I knew someone would ask the question. Ray did! Next time, we play with the lights on."
Well, my friends, I try to keep the light of HaSHem shinning in my life. Having missed up a life time ago, I know the difference, and believe me; Light is Better.
So have a bright life and future, and GBY all
What is one of the first signs that would be Christians have been sucked into some form of Hebrew roots or that they have been deceived into supporting the anti-christs who call themselves Jews? When you hear the word Shalom come out of their mouth, know they have been sucked into this cult. In the last 15 or 20 years, there has been a "Hebrew roots" movement. If I were to guess I would say this deceptive movement comes from the bellies of the snakes who profess to be the Jews. The line is .... "The Jews have given us the bible" The follow up is #2 mutating Christian practices with the concocted religion falsely called Judaism and #1 giving money and such support to those who call themselves Jews. The Jews gave us the bible? Here this cult is making themselves God. God (not these false "Jews") gave us the bible. As for the first contract God gave, he gave it to Moses to pass it along. To the actual Israelites God gave that contract to, they were such mockers, God intended to kill all the Israelites all and start all over from scratch from descendants of Moses. In the first place, it was not on their own merit that God dealt with them, but by the acts of Abraham, they got to go along for the ride. No such thing as a Jew existed until hundreds of years after the laws of the Israelites were given to them. The "Jews" never gave the gentiles nor the Israelites anything. ACTS 13:46 Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you: but seeing you put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles. No Christian owes anything to the Christ hating / denying Blabites. If you want to repay those who gave us the scriptures, begin burying your money in the ground and after the resurrection, tell Moses, Christ and the apostles where they can dig it up. Imagine Christians going into synagogues, following the rituals concocted by their Blabites and giving finical support to Christ haters / Christ deniers. Not one counterfeit "Jew" you will ever know in your life time are the authors of the scriptures, none of these people died on the cross for you. No Christian owes anything to these deceivers nor does any Christian need to follow the doctrines and commandments concocted by their phony Blabites. We do not owe "Jews" anything. Christianity has NOTHING to do with false Judaism ! JOHN 14:15 If you love me, keep my commandments. JOHN 14:21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me JOHN 14:24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which you hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me. [ THIS IS EVERYONE ON EARTH WHO CLAIMS TO FOLLOW JUDAISM ] 1_CORINTHIANS 16:22 If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha = EVERY ONE ON EARTH who claims to follow Judaism. REVELATION 2:9 ... and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. REVELATION 3:9 I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews and are not, but do lie; 1_JOHN 2:22 Who is a liar but he that denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denies the Father and the Son. [ THIS IS EVERYONE ON EARTH WHO CLAIMS TO FOLLOW JUDAISM ] MATTHEW 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other... And yet these self professing Christians make themselves bed fellows with the false Jews and cry how they love Christ !
What do these loving, friendly "Jews" really think or say about Christ and Christians when the are in their synagogues and Christians can't hear them?
( Is that Jesus Christ is the liar and false prophet who was the servant of Satan by the Jew's Talmud ? }
MikeC. Njoy Try to understand.
IMPOSABLE Mike, IMPOSABLE. NOT gonna happen, EVER.
Then, of course what Jesus, as a Torah centered Jew preached most against-finger pointing. "Judge not, that you be not judged."
One way to know if someone is a false Christian
Jesus was GOD CENTERED. The Word Of God, God in the flesh.
Yep, God (Jesus Christ) judged YOU JEWS, and YOU JEWS JUDGED Jesus Christ the Savior, you Jews nailed the Savior to the Cross, and you still crucify Jesus Christ today rejecting THE SAVIOR, THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY JESUS CHRIST as you did then.
No such thing as a Jew existed until hundreds of years after the laws of the Israelites were given to them. The "Jews" never gave the gentiles nor the Israelites anything. ACTS 13:46 Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you: but seeing you put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles.

Remain silent and be thought a demon OR speak and remove all doubt.
Bout time for the evil spirits to show up and call God a liar. , COME FORTH!!!!!
Then in the name of Jesus Christ go back inside the body you reside and remain silent.
They come from her fantasy role playing game, the satanic Dungeons and Dragons.
A code of conduct is the reasons for the laws of God. I may despise what is taught, get angry, distrust and respond negatively. All that aside, the law of God/Christ states that we absolutely can not hate, project hate of another, condone, teach hate or revenge. It was posted on here that " JOHN 14:15 If you love me, keep my commandments." Not the ones you like, but all of them. I noticed how someone on here used a reading on here along with a correct interpretation, " that no man can serve two masters" even when it was brought up about money and God. I have no argument about what it meant. But I also know that Christ said to Peter, to lay down your sword, "those that live by the sword, will die by the sword" That also needs to be analyzed in a meaning far deeper than the physical sword. The sword of the tongue cuts much deeper.
I am guilty of that at times but it is not my intent to show hate. I know I said this a hundred times because it means something to me. If a man can put up with so much pain brought about by a people who hate him, then say, "forgive them" at his death. That is also something to think about. We need to ask ourselves, who am I to hate an other ? The lesson was taught by the Master above all the lessons expressed by his followers. To me, the Messiah did exactly what he had to do, show us a code of conduct, how to live and how to die.
Two things I WILL DIE FOR!!!
Calling Jesus Christ a LIE. Calling Gods word a LIE.
Anoymous, think of what I said. I did not say you could not defend the words of God, did I ? Did you ever here of the word "subtle" ?
The idea of the Apostles was not to condemn, but to convert. You should use that thought before you respond. It might help.
