Matt 32:29 You shall love your neighbour as yourself.. and that means you will do him no harm now too.
Hey I admit life has thrown me some really big surprises, things I had not expected to encounter:
NEXT I WONDERED WHY THE RELIGIOUS, CHURCH BOARD MEMBERS WERE SO DEAD OR SLEEPY HEADS, USELESS, FOR THEY DID NOTHING GOOD ABOUT THE BAD THINGS THEY TOO FOR CERTAINLY NOW SAW.. I next realized they had taken their positions not to make real positive changes but mostly to become more well liked by all others, to be more popular, to have more friends, even for business contacts too, and thus if their making any of the needed changes can cause you to lose your popularity now, your friends and make a lot of enemies too, they do nothing good about it.
So if you want to make a big difference in life do not expect to be well liked, or very popular too. Nobody likes to be rebuked but As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. (Rev 3:19 KJV) Open rebuke is better than secret love.(Prov 27:5 KJV) Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful. (Prov 27:6 KJV)
Now about the too many crooked churches who teach false doctrines and claim to be Christians, you now clearly, always for a START can tell who the false professing Christians persons they really are by their clear visible lack of love for others, and how quickly they can divorce the others who do not give into their pockets, or go along with their false demands now too,
– NOW THE CHURCHES THEMSELVES WERE, NOT BY THE LEAST, THE ONLY PLACES I ENCOUNTERED TOO MANY CROOKED PERVERSE PERSONS. JUST TRY THE BUSINESS WORLD, THE CIVIL AND PUBLIC SERVICES, GOVERNMENTS, THE POLICE INCLUDED NOW.. I was again really surprised here too as to why no one did basically about these perverse persons, false teachers, crooked persons, and I guess they were just as crooked as they were firstly. Lying, thieving, alcoholic, abusive priests, pastors, Ministers, cops, LAWYERS, DOCTORS, PROFESSIONALS who cannot even change themselves for the good they are of no use to anyone as well. I do not have to accept any of those lying hypocrites who say to me you cannot judge me for I am a good person .. dream on.. I can. https://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/09/01/they-are-of-no-use-to-anyone-as-well/
– Next I could not but notice the many troublesome, perverse, meddlesome persons I also do encounter, have encountered elsewhere in real life, especially in family members, relatives, but also in professionals, lawyers, associates, etc..
NOW I TEND TO WRITE FROM WHAT I KNOW IS TESTED, TRIED, AND TRUE.. SUCH AS ALL THAT GLITTERS IS NOT GOLD FOR SURE TOO.
Now I once worked a poorly managed firm for a few years and wondered why the General Manager did nothing about it too.. and I next wondered how best to deal with it as well.. One daya few years later they fired the General Manager and it next shook up the rest of this staff and everyone started to work harder, so I learned a great lessons, if you want to make changes, you have to start making exemplary changes at the top, openly firing first the incompetent mangers.
And I had learned now that public exposure, real negative exemplary consequences to the major bad persons works well.. the darkness hates the light and runs away once exposed.. I am not kind at all rightfuly to any abusers, verbal ones, physical ones, etc. that I too do encounter..
Did you know that sibling rivalry, abuse is one of the most common forms of family violence? Siblings will use physical violence because they have learned it from their parents, a bad mother or a bad father, or other adults. In fact, one study found that 76% of the children who were repeatedly abused by their parents also abused their siblings.. and their spouse next too https://postedat.wordpress.com/2008/12/28/coping-effectively/
MY DENTIST TOLD ME THAT too many persons ARE frustrated, angry at work, but they cannot get back at the people there who hurt them, so they come home and take it out falsely, abusively on their family members instead. Unacceptable too.
Almost since my first job after graduating from university I had learned that generally most people still are not to be trusted, they always do need to be supervised, and corruption still exists in construction, universities, municipalities, governments, corporations, amongst professionals and politicians as well. Here is what I know for sure in Canada that the proper policing, management , supervision human rights commissions are a real fact of life, in our society, in schools, life, in churches, governments, commerce, institutions, civil and public services, professional services too, and elsewhere, even on the net, for you will always have those 30 percent at least of the persons who will try to cheat, lie , steal, bend the rules, falsely believe they are above the laws. Self regulation alone is too often pretentious, farcical, often not applied as well. That applies especially to the professionals, civil and public services, police, municipalities, politicians, pastors now as well. https://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/06/24/no-one-is-above-the-law/
You can fool most of the people most of the time, some of the people some of the time but not all of the people all the time.. nevertheless a good name is worth more than any silver or gold you acquire, and a bad name is disrespected even after the person’s death. One of the most surprising things to me in real life was to witness, experience. and many times now too, that the real bad, immoral con men, liars, thieves, fakers, imposters, pretenders do often like to be associated with a Christian Church .. and can hold positions as Pastors, elders now too..
One of many real life examples, from my childhood days in my local Church I had now encountered a fellow evangelical church attendee, who next years later was eventually arrested for possession of stolen property and for a time went to prison for it. It now next was of course a shock to hear next that this same person years later when he left prison had became an ordained evangelical Pastor. A shock cause there was no real evidence in fact that he had even changed.. Now decades later the same person now claimed to be a chaplain, visiting sailors on ships, and was supposedly conducting church services. The same person had become the owner of various store buildings and apartments, and he also owned and ran an antique shop as well. I next happened to rent one of the apartments from him as well. Upon which I clearly had discovered, often had witnessed that he still was a fake, for he now also was involved in tax evasions, welfare fraud as well. He used his position as a Church chaplain to buy medals, uniform, war souvenirs from visiting port sailors and next to resell them in his antique store for cash even. He in fact had not changed at all, he was still a crook.. So excuse me when now someone claims to me that such and such a person is now a really good person. In reality I rightfully next tend to first check it out firsthand, for rightfully I no longer believe what most people tell me
(Mat 5:13 KJV) Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
(Luke 6:43 KJV) For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 44 For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes. 45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.
