(Mat 9:13 KJV) But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
ONE OF THE MOST COMMON EVENTS I ENCOUNTER IN PROFESSING RELIGIOUS CHRISTIAN CHURCHES for decades especially at family gatherings are those people who can clearly see the sin in other persons lives but none in their own.
(Mat 7:3 KJV) And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? 5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.
The very same persons who often says to me “the lazy no good persons on social welfare are bums”, they immorally often next justifies their own false tax evasions by say that “the government takes too much”..
(Rev 3:19 KJV) As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
(Luke 17:3 KJV) Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.
(Phil 2:15 KJV) That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;
(1 Tim 5:20 KJV) Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.
(2 Tim 4:2 KJV) Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
(Titus 1:13 KJV) This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;
(Titus 2:15 KJV) These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.
Sadly too many persons do mostly still live in a self centered, deluded world of their own doing and making all of their life. Trying to talk to them is like talking to a brick wall, for they seems to knows it all.. and rarely do I hear next some great thought, insights or revelations of great truths from them, for they live a very shallow, mediocre life .. except yesterday when one father was talking to his wife and said “I love money and the things money can buy but my son is worse than I am in this”.. what a revelation but many many years to late, a revelation that did not help his wayward son now….
I have for decades now been blessed and I have lived a sheltered life for I have rarely attended family weddings and funerals were one too often it seems rather encountering those much too many still immoral, crooked, perverse relatives… all who it also seems they still do think will make it to heaven now next too.
And the very same Person who says to me how could the other mother show any false partiality of love towards her children, for “I love my children equally” is the very same self centered, selfish person who says “my children are the best in the world”, and who rather hates the rest of God’s children, yes she falsely does often hates everyone else and cares for no one else but her own self centered, selfish desires and that of her own children.
These often are the very same exclusive, God chosen persons who think everyone else is going to hell, for their own local church, denomination is the best in the world and they are only ones going it make it to heaven.. and how foolish, simply deluded they now all are about themselves and others.. they firstly it seems do even need still to repent the most
Ironically these excusive class of people falsely refuse to fellowship with the others professing Christians, the underdogs, the fifth class citizens.. are the ones most likely themselves now next going to hell instead and not to heaven in reality.. for if you clearly now cannot love the other Christians now here on earth, so what makes you think you will be allowed next to enter Heaven and fellowship with them there? Never!!! (Rev 22:15 KJV) For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
(Mat 22:2 KJV) The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son, 3 And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come. 4 Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage. 5 But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise: 6 And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them. 7 But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city. 8 Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy. 9 Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage. 10 So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests. 11 And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment: 12 And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless. 13 Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 14 For many are called, but few are chosen.
(1 John 2:9 KJV) He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now.
(1 John 2:11 KJV) But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.
(1 John 3:15 KJV) Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.
(1 John 4:20 KJV) If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?
(Mat 7:16 KJV) Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. 21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. 24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: 25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. 26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: 27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
Do you yet know the difference between judging others and a rebuking others?
The Bible if you had read it firstly you would have known that Christians are not allowed to judge those people in the world but they are to judge those people in the church for their wrong behaviors. Pastors and elders can and they are to judge the flock..
Luke 12:57 KJV) Yea, and why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right?
(Jude 1:4 KJV) For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
PERSONAL IGNORANCE OF REALITY AND TRUTH IS A FACT OF LIFE FOR MANY OF US, ALMOST ALL OF US, WE ALL DAILY DO CONTINUE TO LIVE IN IGNORANCE IN THIS WORLD, ONLY GOD’S DIRECT PERSONAL REVELATION IS WHAT SHEDS THE LIGHT FOR SOME OF US AND THUS SENDS US ON THE RIGHT PATH.. DO YOU LET GOD SPEAK TO YOU CONTINUALLY IN REALITY? http://mccainvrsobama.wordpress.com/2009/01/21/does-god-speak-to-you/
