God does not accept any abuse

SINS

HOW YOU EVER NOTICE NOW HOW THE FUNDAMENTALIST,  EVANGELICALS, BAPTISTS AND MANY OTHERS DO LOVE TO BASH CATHOLICS, OTHER DENOMINATIONS, PENTECOSTAL WHILE THEY THEMSELVES ARE HIDING MAJOR SINS IN THEIR OWN GROUPS SUCH AS ALCOHOLICS, ADULTERERS, THIEVES.
.
God does not at all not allow, accept any human rights, verbal and physical abuses and neither should we.. And Exemplary public exposure of the Bullies, abusers, the bad, guilty persons serves everyone’s best interest next too. God undeniably himself does not show false partiality . God still Shouts the abuses, sins truth from the housetops..
.
Let me tell you we do not have to accept human rights abuse that is a lie of the devil.. in this world we have the same rights as the bully even the right to see that a bully is punished for abusing us.. God is not ignorant about the injustices inflicted upon his people, nor does he accept any of our human rights abuses without punishing the abusers shortly.. see the Bible book of Esther if you have doubts..
.
Est 9:25 But when Esther came before the king, he commanded by letters that his wicked device, which he devised against the Jews, should return upon his own head, and that he and his sons should be hanged on the gallows.
.

These Abusers are often really deceived persons falsely believing they alone have the right to speak and to be heard.. they are generally the unacceptable bullies as well now.. all unacceptable always, still.. God himself does not tolerate, all such abuses. The right of free speech is never a right to lie about others, to bully them, to slander them, to put them down..

..

The WRONGFULLY STILL Unrepentant bully’s problem is that he or she is one of those bad persons who only feels truly alive when voicing hostility and contempt for his “enemies.” Without that, he or she starts gasping for air. It’s his nature.. self-destructive” .. clearly these immoral Bully, Basher of others, Abusers of others has a disappointed, deflated ego, negative self worth, most likely related to past unresolved guilt, as a result of that the bully, he or she, tries falsely to build their ego up by bashing, hating others, by being an antagonists against his proclaimed enemies, which too often also is most people , for he or she no longer trust anyone, and Abusers this is a common very typical approach, fact in the character build up of Bullies, Bashers, but their approach is futile, the subsequent feeling of self worth dissipates too quickly, are actually replaced by guilt, and his ego, self worth likely needs to be recharged with new hate.. and is replaced with more and larger hatred of the others.

(Prov 14:12 KJV) There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

.

Beware always of men and women, bullies, tormentors, control freaks, false putdown, negative persons, false Prophets, false pastors, leaders, elders, who falsely do, will try to enslave you, oppress you, exploit you even while they claim they are proclaiming the truth, democracy, trying to help you, etc.,

.

Is 51:23 ..your tormentors {and} oppressors, those who said to you, Bow down, that we may ride {or} tread over you; and you have made your back like the ground and like the street for them to pass over

.

(Mat 7:16 KJV) Ye shall know them by their fruits.

.
Now a Southern Baptist leader had suggested abused women should ‘be submissive’ instead of getting a divorce, Controversial comments about women, abuse and divorce made by respected leaders in the Southern Baptist Convention have put many of its leaders in deep uncomfortable position.Those comments, which had set off a wave of criticism within Southern Baptist circles over the message it sent to women. Such episodes aren’t surprises to women who have recounted their own experiences in the Southern Baptist Convention. “Anyone who would say that a woman has to stay in a violent or abusive relationship because it honors God is wrong,”
.
Abuse something we all often encounter and do not know how to deal with it? Well do not hesitate to call the police, the news media and report it.. Everyone  needs to set boundaries on what is acceptable behavior. No verbal abuses, no bullying, no lying, no foul languages, no hitting or other violence should be allowed.

.

Hate and Verbal abuse unrestrained often next do lead to physical abuse. Hate, Verbal or physical  abuse is always unacceptable too. So are the Bullies now too … I have learned a long time ago that public exposure and prosecution of the abusers serves everyone’s best interests.
.
“Many women have experienced horrific abuses within the power structures of our Christian world,” Beth Moore. The Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary fired Paige Patterson, he 75-year-old president of Fort Worth’s Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, which claims to be one of the largest schools of its kind in the world. Also Andy Savage resigned as a teaching pastor at Highpoint Church, a nondenominational congregation after he acknowledged that he had been involved in an inappropriate “sexual incident” with an underage high school student as a youth minister at a large Southern Baptist church near Houston. On any given Sunday, there are more women than men who attend church. These women, in communities across America, may think twice before pulling into a Southern Baptist church’s parking lot. Southern Baptists now find themselves in a situation that is perilous. Too many Southern Baptists say Patterson’s comments reflect larger attitudes about women within the seminary and the denomination’s circles,
.
New Orleans pastor and seminary professor John Gibson struggled with a sexual addiction, depression and the shame of having been exposed as a user of the infidelity Web site Ashley Madison.
.
Les Hughey founder of a popular megachurch in Arizona admits having sex with girls in his charge when he was a married youth pastor at a prominent Modesto church
.
“Brad Tebbutt, who like Hughey was a youth pastor at Modesto’s First Baptist Church sexually abused a girl from age 14 to 17,
.
The larger problem of sexual abuse in evangelical circles. Much of the sexual abuse that takes place in Independent Fundamentalist Baptist churches involves adult men targeting 14- to 16-year-old girls. Former IFB megachurch pastor Jack Schaap argued that he should be released from prison after being convicted of molesting a 16-year-old girl.
.
There’s no shortage of such stories.Women raised in evangelicalism and fundamentalism have for years discussed the normalization of child sexual abuse. We’ve told our stories on social media and on our blogs and various online platforms, but until the Moore story broke, mainstream American society barely paid attention. Everyone assumed this was an isolated, fringe issue. It isn’t.
.
(Jer 5:7 KJV) How shall I pardon thee for this? thy children have forsaken me, and sworn by them that are no gods: when I had fed them to the full, they then committed adultery, and assembled themselves by troops in the harlots’ houses.
.
(Jer 7:9 KJV) Will ye steal, murder, and commit adultery, and swear falsely, and burn incense unto Baal, and walk after other gods whom ye know not;
.
(Jer 23:14 KJV) I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem an horrible thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the hands of evildoers, that none doth return from his wickedness: they are all of them unto me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah.
.
.
AND EVEN CHRISTIAN MEN HAVE ALSO BEEN ABUSED BY SO CALLED CHRISTIAN WIFE.  LETS NOT PRETEND TO BE DUMB AND DENY THAT MANY OF THE DIVORCING SPOUSES EVEN PROFESSING CHRISTIAN ONES AND THEIR LAWYERS, SUPPORTERS THEY DO FIRSTLY LIE EVEN IN WRITING TO THE COURTS TOO.. THEY DO COMMIT PERJURY TO THE COURTS IN DIVORCE DISPUTES, AND TOO OFTEN WASTE THE COURT’S TIME AND TAX PAYER’S MONEY CAUSE BASICALLY THEY ARE ALL STILL PROSTITUTES, THEY PROVIDE THEIR SERVICES FOR THE MONEY . DIVORCE MOSTLY IS CAUSED BY THE FALSE LOVE FOR MORE MONEY, SELFISHNESS, UNREALISTIC EXPECTATIONS, LAZINESS, UNFORGIVENESS OR UNCONTROLLED SEXUAL LUST
.
Without a doubt, many fingers that get pointed at belong to the people who are truthful. it is very hard to determine who is telling the truth with the salacious false stories, gossip, misinformation and lies about his personal life . So there’s often a big problem in sorting out the truthful accusers from the lying accusers who lie because of a profit motive. sexual lusts, melding; in-laws. The spouse she may look refined, but she can get very vicious when angry, she is a gold-digging fantasist, a blackmailer. a liar. She makes False claims that don’t have time stamps and have been doctored. The estranged wife is ‘making up’ false claims of domestic abuse in order to boost her divorce settlement. It is not unusual for the divorce perpetrator’s playbook to include miscasting the victim as the sole villain.’ As she was leaving him she had threatened to ‘lie about him publicly if he didn’t agree to her terms, over a clash over parental rights spiced by the in-laws, her parents’ “desperate desire” for her and the children to move near them, so that they the children can have a closer relationship with their maternal grandparents,” The “affluent” in-laws are “bankrolling” her litigation so that they could enjoy easier access to the grandchildren. The spouse was also fighting over the preservation of hidden assets and stolen heirlooms. she is thus accused of cooking up the abuse story to influence a judge’s decision on spousal support
.
Imagine this even in a so called Christian Church a lazy, no good, rebellious, actually a slut, adulterous, unfaithful wife OFTEN STILL now files for a divorce, and still demands alimony but she also often even gets her church support in this matter claiming the Bible says the husband is to be the sole bread winner and too look after his wife. Well I got GOOD news for you all FOR there is no such verse in the Bible and the same PERVERTED church that says so, let them now support the wife next.. for the Bible is clear a wife is an equal marriage partner, who now also works even supporting her family .. (Prov 31:10 KJV) Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies…. 13 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.
.
Proverbs 14:1 New International Version The wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down.
.
A Common Loser’s Strategy is asking to Look at me! Notice me. See who I am! Pay attention to me. I am great! I AM THE GREATEST! Worship me, Praise me. Losers worship the false god of self.
.
Decide you’re going to stay married, no matter what. Literally When a woman first seriously considers divorce she usually isn’t thinking about the theological implications of her desires – all she knows is that she is desperate wants to get more from her husband. She doesn’t arrive at this state of desperation by a process of calm deduction. Most husbands have few memories of “hurting” their wives and do not give it any thought. The truth is that a hardened woman only got that way because she was elf centred, selfish. Most women leave their husbands, because they entered marriage with false expectations Such a wife will be consumed by bitterness. she should realize the negative impact of her bad decisions will have, on her children or others . Her heart is too far hardened, and will not now respond to words of Truth. She falsely blames him for her bitterness.
.
Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate. (Matthew 19:6) Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her. And if she divorces her husband and marries another man, she commits adultery. (Mark 10:11-12) If any brother has a wife who is not a believer and she is willing to live with him, he must not divorce her. And if a woman has a husband who is not a believer and he is willing to live with her, she must not divorce him. (1 Corinthians 7:12-13) https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/01/02/divorce-and-remarriage-in-the-christian-church/
.
ONE OF THE MOST COMMON, POPULAR TOPICS, SEARCHES ON THE INTERNET is can a Christian next get divorced and remarried, and the simple answer is no! but wait do not stop reading yet.. if you are married, living to a demon, a control freak, a liar, a lazy good for nothing abusive person then please now do immediately get out of the marriage, do get an immediate separation.. and this not the kind of advice you would expect from a preacher of peace and love, but I am telling you all this for our own good, and you can thank me later.. and maybe next the still good for nothing bum, lousy spouse, he or she will wake up as to what she is really like and they may try to get help to change herself, himself.. but meanwhile don’t feel guilty about the peace you now have in your life.. By the way make sure first you are not the creepy, a good for nothing spouse yourself otherwise by your actions you will be doing your own spouse a great, great service

Isaiah 1
18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

.

Isaiah 59
2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.

.

Jeremiah 5
25 Your iniquities have turned away these things, and your sins have withholden good things from you.

.

Numbers 32
23 But if ye will not do so, behold, ye have sinned against the LORD: and be sure your sin will find you out.

.

DO NOT LIKE MY FREE SPEECH.. TOO BAD BASHING CATHOLICS IS OK? BUT TELLING THE TRUTH ABOUT BAPTISTS IS NOT EHH.

.

History is quite simply full of the activity of passive-aggresive persons and control freaks. These Abusers are often really deceived persons falsely believing they alone have the right to speak and to be heard.. they are generally the unacceptable bullies as well now.. all unacceptable always, still.. God himself does not tolerate, all such abuses

.

I clearly do believe in the right of everyone to speak, to speak out as well, and to be equally heard by all, so we can all judge what has been said if it is appropriate and we can next corresponding act upon it, even in the church, in the government, on the internet now too. Clearly some people falsely DO DISALLOW THIS RIGHT… the bad persons especially as even I know this for sure. They respond with a personal attack, inquisition, censorship, lies, slanders, diversions, distortions, instead of facing, dealing with the facts, truths being presented. Confirming to many what they still are really like, immoral, abusive bullies.

.

When one express an opinion, view one can automatically expect contradictions, opposition to it, such as real life, You get used to it..

.

Now we all do really have freedom of religion, freedom of choice, freedom of speech, the right to be heard now as well..

.

While in reality God has made us all equal, and GAVE US ALL MOUTHS WE CAN SPEAK WITH, EARS TO LISTEN, it seems some people, in churches, on the net, elsewhere, they still wrongfully do think they are better than others, or want to dominate others, do try to give orders to others, do try to make rules for others that they too often themselves do not follow too, they are in fact still bullies.. and now why is that? and who do they think they are now that they are so special? Mere fools. They mostly have a hidden agenda, they are falsely seeking fame, power, control, a position of prestige, for they are immoral slave drivers trying to walk on the back of others…Too many persons now they are trying to change others when they firstly do need to be changed..

.

Free speech too often seems to be expected as only is a right mainly for the rich, the bad guys, crooks, not the decent folks. I also do I know that bad guys and gals such as the crooked cops, crooked pastors, crooked politicians, crooked anyone do not like me to use my right of free speech.. but too bad for them..

,

Now we all do really have freedom of religion, freedom of choice, freedom of speech, the right to be heard now as well.. The Exemplary Public exposure and prosecution of the unrepentant guilty CONTROL FREAKS, BULLIES also now serves everyone’s best interest

.

TOO ANY MENTALLY SICK people have their own false images, scenarios, and refuse to see the truth of what is going on and in denial to the truth, these people they next even do falsely say anything, lies, slander included.. these people are the ones who need help. It is a COMMON fact of life, particularly among the young, inexperienced, really bad persons who really hate the truth or they cannot handle serious , heavy negative realities that false denial, ostrich approach is a serious part of their make up, and their related defense protection when they now cannot discredit the facts, the make a false personal attack on the writer, persons instead.I can readily recognize bad control freaks on the net cause they want to give me advice how to write my post, what to write, in fact they want to rather write it for me.. rather fools is what they really are.. I freely can speak for myself, write for myself now too. You readily find these freaks also in churches, homes, etc., demonic enslavers is what they rather are too now. Not much point in being nice to them for often they are too dumb to understand who they really are too often too… and they rarely change.

.

Mat 18:6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. 7 Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh! 8 Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire. 9 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire. 10 Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That

.

Not surprisingly many prideful people try to take the place of God in my life too, AND these imposters claim even that they have been chosen, designated by God to command over me, THAT I am required into forced submission to their whims, desires , commands. But funny God now himself has not revealed those facts as well to me BUT only to them. I put my trust in God and not in man.. Biblical repentance is admitting one sins to God, stopping and consciously turning away from them, turning back toward God, and personally accepting Jesus Christ finished work, forgiveness for them.

.

As a University graduate , a professional I have always had subordinate working for me, and no… on ever ordered me around, told me what I can and what I cannot do, even my superiors as  it was always suggested merely.  So I have to say I was really surprised  that when I left the working Milieu I found now too many  bullies, false people , slave drivers meddling in my personal  life, even ordering, telling me what I should do, what I should write and what I cannot do, what I cannot write  Even in the churches.

And who in the hell do they really think they are now to do so? I am a free man, my freedom was paid by the lord Jesus Christ and I am accountable now, next still only to him.. So I merely rightfully tell these persons to drop dead, to take my posts or leaven them too..

And about the abuse of Children

Most people think of adult rape as a crime of great proportion and significance, and are unaware that children are victimized at a much higher rate than adults.

Those who molest children look and act just like everyone else. There are people who have or will sexually abuse children in churches, schools and youth sports leagues. Abusers can be neighbors, friends and family members. People who sexually abuse children can be found in families, schools, churches, recreation centers, youth sports leagues, and any other place children gather. Abusers often form relationships with potential victims and their families prior to the abuse. This is called “grooming.” Not everyone who sexually abuses children is a pedophile.

Child sexual abuse in Europe, America, and Asia had prevalence rate of 9.2%, 10.1%, and 23.9%, respectively. Child sexual abuse cases are notoriously difficult to investigate, and less than 10% of cases are prosecuted.

I have to say I was surprised, dismayed to be also informed about the number of that school employees have presented a serious risk to children in their care a very high e number of school employees sexually offending children. The School employees were not alone in this, it included both male and female educational assistants, student teachers, lunch monitors, volunteers, secretaries, custodians and school bus drivers.“The frequency of such abuses are certainly occurring more than one would expect. All of this clearly demonstrates the need for enhanced efforts to protect children in schools. elsewhere too. Public exposure and full prosecution of the guilty serves everyone’s best interest

Child sexual abuse is far more prevalent than most people realize.

Child sexual abuse is likely the most prevalent health problem children face with the most serious array of consequences.

About one in 10 children will be sexually abused before their 18th birthday*.

About one in seven girls and one in 25 boys will be sexually abused before they turn 18*.

This year, there will be about 400,000* babies born in the U.S. that will become victims of child sexual abuseunless we do something to stop it.

Only about 38% of child victims disclose the fact that they have been sexually abused. Some never disclose it

*Includes contact abuse only
.
Child sexual abuse includes a range of behaviors, from obvious contact offenses, to less obvious non-contact offenses which include exposing a child to sexually explicit material, voyeurism, luring a child online for a sexual purpose, and inviting a child to sexually touch themselves or someone else. Children can experience trauma from both contact and non-contact sexual offenses

I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made

prayinghands

“I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people; 2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; 4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; 1 Timothy 2:1-5

.
Psalm 2:8-9 Ask of me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession. 9 You will rule them with an iron sceptre; you will dash them to pieces like pottery.”

.
Matthew 5:43-45 says, “Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.”

.
“Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” (Matt. 3:2). The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 2 Peter 3:9

.

Praying for someone to be saved while they are alive works. I am sure that everyone who was saved, was saved because someone prayed for them.

,

“For I know my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me. Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight so that you may be justified in your words and blameless in your judgment” (Ps. 51:3–4).

.

Prayers for Salvation

.
We begin with prayers for tgeir salvation. Pray that God would circumcise their hearts. To have a circumcised heart symbolizes having a heart that is fully joined to God, fully submissive to him. “And the LORD your God will circumcise your heart and the heart of your offspring, so that you will love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul, that you may live” (Deuteronomy 30:6).

.

Pray that God would give them a heart of flesh. “And I will give them one heart, and a new spirit I will put within them. I will remove the heart of stone from their flesh and give them a heart of flesh…” (Ezekiel 11:19).

.

Pray that God would put his Spirit within them. “And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes and be careful to obey my rules” (Ezekiel 36:27).

.

Pray that they would come to Christ. They must come through Christ and Christ alone. “Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me’” (John 14:6)

.

Pray that God would open their hearts to believe the gospel. “The Lord opened her heart to pay attention to what was said by Paul” (Acts 16:14).

.

Pray that God would free them from the slavery of sin. “But thanks be to God, that you who were once slaves of sin have become obedient from the heart to the standard of teaching to which you were committed” (Romans 6:17).

.

Pray that God would remove Satan’s blinding influence . “In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God” (2 Corinthians 4:4).

.

Pray that God would grant them repentance. “God may perhaps grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth, and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, after being captured by him to do his will” (2 Timothy 2:25-26).

.

Pray for them faithfully and persistently. “Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving” (Colossians 4:2). (See also the parable of the persistent widow in Luke 18:1-8.)

.

Pray that God would use any circumstance to do his work in them.. Pray for them to see their sin as God sees it. Pray that God would extend his mercy to them .

.

“The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working” (James 5:16).

.

Not everyone will eventually end up in heaven. God is making it very clear and very plain that we have to accept His free gift of eternal salvation through His Son Jesus this side of heaven, not the next. The doctrine of hell and eternal damnation is without question.

.

Praying for someone to be saved after they have died is too late. Hebrews tells us, “Just as man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment” (Hebrews 9:27). as “now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation” (2 Corinthians 6:2). God’s Word shows that the dead no longer have any physical or mental activity (Psalm 146:4; Ecclesiastes 9:5, 10). Each person who dies sleeps in his grave in unconsciousness until the resurrection (John 5:28-29; Daniel 12:2; Job 19:25-26; 14:12-14; John 3:13; Acts 2:29, 34).

,
“Wilt thou shew wonders to the dead? shall the dead arise and praise thee? Selah. Shall thy lovingkindness be declared in the grave? or thy faithfulness in destruction? Shall thy wonders be known in the dark? and thy righteousness in the land of forgetfulness? “ Psalms 88:10-12

.
“Return, O LORD, deliver my soul: oh save me for thy mercies’ sake. For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks?” Psalms 6:4-5

.
Clearly, prayers should be for the living while there is still hope of repentance, not for the dead, who can do nothing. All Christians believe that only God can determine whether a person belongs in heaven or in hell. Entreaties on behalf of the deceased can’t sway God from what’s right, but post-mortem praying does not have any effect, uses.

.

“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things DONE IN THE BODY, according to what He has done, whether good or bad.” (2 Corinthians 5:10)

.

“… and each one will receive His own reward ACCORDING TO HIS OWN LABOR.” (1 Corinthians 3:8)

.

“And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to everyone ACCORDING TO HIS WORK.” (Revelation 22:12)

.

“… I am He who searches the minds and hearts. And I will give to each one of you ACCORDING TO YOUR WORKS.” (Revelation 2:23)

.

Praying for the dead is not a biblical concept. Our prayers have no bearing on someone once he or she has died. The reality is that, at the point of death, one’s eternal destiny is confirmed. Either he is saved through faith in Christ and is in heaven where he is experiencing rest and joy in God’s presence, or he is in torment in hell. The story of the rich man and Lazarus the beggar provides us with a vivid illustration of this truth. Jesus plainly used this story to teach that after death the unrighteous are eternally separated from God, that they remember their rejection of the gospel, that they are in torment, and that their condition cannot be remedied (Luke 16:19-31).

.

“Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.” (Revelation 20:11-14)

.

(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.) 2 Corinthians 6:2

.

“How shall we escape, if we neglect so great Salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him; Hebrews 2:3

.

One goes to hell by his own free choice, he chooses also not to be in Heaven with Jesus.God possesses major characteristics that will never be compatible with sinners forever, and so the case for an eternal hell is justified. God is not God of love only, He is God of highest Holiness, He is the Supreme Holy One. Because God is forever, without end, holy, perfect and pure, He cannot be with the impure sinner. God cannot be with a sinner because He is holy forever . To whom does God’s love apply then? – To those who are in Christ. There is now no condemnation to those who are in Him. Salvation from sin and hell belong to the repenters, to those who believe

.

Man is unholy, unrighteous and without the gospel of Jesus Christ man is already dead without it. “God is angry with the wicked everyday. Psalm 7:11

We are all at WAR so act like it.

 
(2 Pet 1:2 KJV)  Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,  3  According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: 4  Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. 5  And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; 6  And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; 7  And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. 8  For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.  9  But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins. 10  Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall: 11  For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
 
We are all at WAR with the devil  so act like it. Real actions are still required on our part. Complacency, presumption, an ostrich approach are all unacceptable still too
(1 Pet 5:8 KJV)  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
(1 Pet 5:9 KJV)  Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.
 (James 4:7 KJV)  Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
(James 4:8 KJV)  Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.
(Mark 8:33 KJV)  But when he had turned about and looked on his disciples, he rebuked Peter, saying, Get thee behind me, Satan: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but the things that be of men.
 
RATHER BY  FAITH APPROPRIATE GOD’S EMPOWERNMENT  INTO  YOUR LIFE FOR THE HOLY,  GODLY, MIRACULOUS  LIVING AS FOUND IN THE SCRIPTURES 
 
(John 15:5 KJV)  I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. 6    If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. 7   If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. 8  Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples. 9   As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.
 .
Just cause the preacher may say it is alright to take Charge of your life does not make it so, are you now taking Charge of your own life or are you letting  God to take Charge of his  life.
 .
(Jonah 1:2 KJV)  Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before me. 3   But Jonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of the LORD, and went down to Joppa; and he found a ship going to Tarshish: so he paid the fare thereof, and went down into it, to go with them unto Tarshish from the presence of the LORD.
 .
Just cause the preacher says it is alright does not mean it is so… here is the truth, the reality still
1: Doing your own thing is still sinful, as Adam and Eve had found out  or
2: doing nothing good is also sinful as Jonas found out..
for we are not our own, we all are slaves of God, and we have to first obey him and do only what he says for us to do and not what the preaches say is alright.  (Acts 5:29 KJV)  Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.
 .
So do you read your Bible daily to fins out God’s instructions for you or do you easily still just do your own thing, that which is right in your own eyes.
 .
(Exo 15:26 KJV)  And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.
 .
(Deu 12:8 KJV)  Ye shall not do after all the things that we do here this day, every man whatsoever is right in his own eyes.
 .
(Judg 17:6 KJV)  In those days there was no king in Israel, but every man did that which was right in his own eyes.
 .
(Prov 12:15 KJV)  The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.
 .
Troubled?

INSTEAD OF DWELLING WITH GOD IN HIS WORD AND HIS EMPOWERNMENT, PROMISES TO  US IN HIS WORD THE BIBLE  are you rather still looking at your circumstances, other people, friends, your surroundings, your resources, your needs, your problems or are you firstly looking at God?

(Prov 24:10 KJV)  If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.

Quite often I find myself counseling effectively, giving insights to  some really trouble senior persons who have found themselves in an unexpected negative situation and the do not know what to do about it, how it started or how to get out of it. I can often simply recognize these persons by their worried looks they manifest as they are walking around in circles,  prowling like a cat. They are trying to find some answers and solutions

Rule number one do not look to man for help… their answers are very very unreliable, distorted, inapplicable too often.. for example he went to the doctors for help and he still died..  rather first log on to God for help in a humble prayer, so first ask him what happened, what to do and where to go first.

– Secondly do not do your own thing nor be in a haste to do something personally without having first  a deeper understanding of the whole events. ” I am  troubled because I seem to have suffered a severe memory loss” . Likley caused by your depression or sleeping pills too.. or the lack of sleep, lack of food..

Unrealistic expectations and laziness can be another reasons you are unable to crawl out of the deep pit you find yourself in..

– Too many self centered persons go to extreme habits or improper, poor values as well that can now have a very serious negative effect on them too.. some people talk too much and do very little real listening still too,

– Or Karma, you now are reaping negative results for your negative personal works.. such as your past neglects, abuses, cheating, lying, slandering, stealing, alcoholism, adultery, etc., better to repent quickly.

(Psa 1:1 KJV)  Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. 2   But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. 3    And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

(Deu 27:25 KJV)  Cursed be he that taketh reward to slay an innocent person. And all the people shall say, Amen.

(Deu 27:26 KJV)  Cursed be he that confirmeth not all the words of this law to do them. And all the people shall say, Amen.

(Jer 48:10 KJV)  Cursed be he that doeth the work of the LORD deceitfully, and cursed be he that keepeth back his sword from blood.

(Psa 4:5 KJV)  Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the LORD.

(Psa 31:6 KJV)  I have hated them that regard lying vanities: but I trust in the LORD.

(James 4:3 KJV)  Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.

(James 4:4 KJV)  Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

(James 4:5 KJV)  Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy?

(James 4:6 KJV)  But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.

(James 4:7 KJV)  Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

(James 4:8 KJV)  Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.

Also

(Eccl 7:13 KJV)  Consider the work of God: for who can make that straight, which he hath made crooked? 14  In the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity consider: God also hath set the one over against the other, to the end that man should find nothing after him. 15  All things have I seen in the days of my vanity: there is a just man that perisheth in his righteousness, and there is a wicked man that prolongeth his life in his wickedness. 16  Be not righteous over much; neither make thyself over wise: why shouldest thou destroy thyself? 17  Be not over much wicked, neither be thou foolish: why shouldest thou die before thy time? 18  It is good that thou shouldest take hold of this; yea, also from this withdraw not thine hand: for he that feareth God shall come forth of them all.
(Psa 149:6 KJV)  Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two edged sword in their hand;
 .
When we do a sacrifice of praise, a serious effort, cause it is not always easy to praise God when we are down,  we are allowing God into our life, we are giving God permission to deal with all those negative forces, circumstances surrounding our life presently.
 .
(Psa 4:5 KJV)  Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the LORD.
(Psa 37:3 KJV)  Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
(Psa 40:3 KJV)  And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.

(Prov 29:25 KJV)  The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe.
 
Put these words into practice in your own life..
 
One of the funny things I find about real  life for me is that it is too often  still is periods of either feast or famine, of one having an abundance or one faces poverty, having an absolute minimum essentials.. one has too much work or not enough.. one has too little time or too much free time, or one can’t find the time to be alone, to rest, versus one has  too much solitude and the same thing applies to one’s friends..  one has loads of superficial friends, or a bare minimum of good, trustworthy friends. But when it finally comes to reality, the basics each one of us now still has to personally  live our own life, that includes taking power over the devil, taking power away from the devil by the name and blood of Jesus..
 .
(Eccl 5:19 KJV)  Every man also to whom God hath given riches and wealth, and hath given him power to eat thereof, and to take his portion, and to rejoice in his labour; this is the gift of God.
(Eccl 6:2 KJV)  A man to whom God hath given riches, wealth, and honour, so that he wanteth nothing for his soul of all that he desireth, yet God giveth him not power to eat thereof, but a stranger eateth it: this is vanity, and it is an evil disease.
(Eccl 7:14 KJV)  In the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity consider: God also hath set the one over against the other, to the end that man should find nothing after him.
(Eccl 7:15 KJV)  All things have I seen in the days of my vanity: there is a just man that perisheth in his righteousness, and there is a wicked man that prolongeth his life in his wickedness.
(Eccl 7:16 KJV)  Be not righteous over much; neither make thyself over wise: why shouldest thou destroy thyself?
(Eccl 7:17 KJV)  Be not over much wicked, neither be thou foolish: why shouldest thou die before thy time?
(Eccl 7:18 KJV)  It is good that thou shouldest take hold of this; yea, also from this withdraw not thine hand: for he that feareth God shall come forth of them all.
(Eccl 7:19 KJV)  Wisdom strengtheneth the wise more than ten mighty men which are in the city.
(Amos 3:10 KJV)  For they know not to do right, saith the LORD, who store up violence and robbery in their palaces. 11   Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; An adversary there shall be even round about the land; and he shall bring down thy strength from thee, and thy palaces shall be spoiled.
 Thinking about God reduces distress, study finds

.

If you want to reduce your stress level and feel less upset, perhaps you should think about God. Investigators at the University of Toronto Scarborough found that when people think about God and religion, their brains respond in ways that allows them to react with less distress.

Stress, Religion and God

The physiological and psychological impacts of stress are well known and range from depression and anxiety disorders to gastrointestinal problems, high blood pressure, sexual dysfunction, hair loss, obesity, and diabetes, among others. Findings effective ways to help people cope with or manage stress, therefore, is an important goal.

Given that 85 percent of people in the world have some type of religious belief system, Michael Inzlicht, assistant psychology professor, and Alexa Tullet of the University of Toronto Scarborough decided to uncover what functions such beliefs might serve. http://www.emaxhealth.com/1275/reduce-stress-think-about-god

 I am a slave to no man, or evil spirit . Jesus is the only commander I respect, know, follow now too.. Now I also do know some persons claim to be modern day prophets. God’s chosen leaders,  called by God, some even think they are supposedly God appointed rulers like king David was, even some confused members of my own family now too.. well they are always mistaken here too.

LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD MEETS PINOCCHIO IN CHURCH

 hood

NO  ONE HAD WARNED ME BASICALLY IN REAL LIFE  THAT I WOULD HAVE TO NEXT TOO OFTEN LEARN HOW TO RECOGNIZE THE SHEEP FROM THE WOLVES,   EVEN IN THE MUCH TOO MANY BAD CHURCHES NOW AS WELL. 

TO ME ONCE THE LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD WAS JUST ANOTHER CHILDISH BED TIME STORY AND NOT REAL LIFE. NOR DID I ENVISAGE IN REAL LIFE THAT THERE ARE SO MANY LYING PINOCCHIOS NOT JUST WOLVES ABOUNDING EVEN IN THE CHRISTIAN  CHURCHES. 
 
liars.abusers
THE CHURCH THESE DAYS NOW TOO OFTEN HAS BECOME  MONEY GATHERING SOCIAL CLUBS MADE OF UP OF MOSTLY  RICH, OR PAID UP MEMBERS, ALL TRYING TO IMPRESS THE OTHERS, ALL MOSTLY TRYING TO LOOK GOOD BEFORE THE OTHERS.  NOT RATHER BEING A LEGITIMATE INSTITUTION  RIGHTFULLY HELPING THE SINNERS TO GET STRAIGHTENED AND ALSO HELPING ALL OF  THE POOR AND NEEDY PERSON THERE TOO.
 
 I WAS IN A LOCAL EVANGELICAL PENTECOSTAL CHURCH WHERE THE PASTOR HAD ASKED ONE OF THE PROMINENT CHURCH PERSONS TO SHARE HOW GOD WAS HELPING HIM TO MEET HIS GOALS  NOW IN LIFE..
 
I here was expecting spiritual, godly goals now.. but instead the divorced person now  shared that his main goals was finding a second wife and getting remarried, getting a good paying job, next buying a nice home and a nice car too.. Clearly I seem to have missed those supporting goals, related  Bible verses in the new testament for all of this in my Sunday School upbringing.. because they are not at all mention, or confirmed  there as being godly goals,, rather they are the too common secular goals many of us have.. and yes there is no promises of God that he would endeavor, next help us to meet this self centered goals. Do correct me if I am here wrong!!!
 
(Luke 8:14 KJV)  And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection. 
 
 (1 Cor 7:29 KJV)  But this I say, brethren, the time is short: it remaineth, that both they that have wives be as though they had none; 30   And they that weep, as though they wept not; and they that rejoice, as though they rejoiced not; and they that buy, as though they possessed not; 31   And they that use this world, as not abusing it: for the fashion of this world passeth away.
 
(1 Cor 15:36 KJV)  Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die:
 
(Mat 19:23 KJV)  Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven. :24   And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
  
(James 1:11 KJV)  For the sun is no sooner risen with a burning heat, but it withereth the grass, and the flower thereof falleth, and the grace of the fashion of it perisheth: so also shall the rich man fade away in his ways.
 
(Luke 12:20 KJV)  But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided? 12:21  So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.
 
(Mat 6:33 KJV)  But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. 34    Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.  (Gal 2:10 KJV)  Only they would that we should remember the poor; the same which I also was forward to do.
 
(Eph 5:17 KJV)  Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. 18   And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;

Crime- Restitution

 crime

 
 Yes, the Bad pastors, bad elders, bad cops, bad politicians  continue to exist  cause likely their supporters are  bad too.  (Jer 5:31 KJV)  The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?
 
 Wrongful inactions, Cover ups, False denial of bad politicians, bad cops, bad persons, false pastors, false priests are much too common but nevertheless they do get exposed, revealed to all as to what they are often now like  too, and get what they deserve, and not the first or last time. Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty still serves as a rightful deterrent example to all and is still one of the best approaches on how to deal with the evil persons. Even the Bible records openly the unrepentant sins of many persons and their real  negative consequences. Too many of the preachers are unacceptably also guilty of preaching “Do what I say and not what I do still too”.
“Unfortunately most religious leaders today seem to be hirelings and not true shepherds! All they care about is their own ministry and self interests and not the best interest of the sheep!
The bottom line is that if you forgive some people without dealing with the issues at hand, the judgment that will fall on them from God will also fall on you! Numbers 16 tells us what happens when you join forces with the wrong people to do evil and wicked things!
 
Christians can be exploited as well
 
Most evangelicals teach mandatory  forgiveness! And in a sense we forgive the person that did the act but we don’t forgive the act and according to Matthew 5:21-26, Luke 18:1-8, Hebrews 10:26-26, and Revelation 2:18-23 we anticipate God to avenge us if there is no restitution or repentance.
 
Evangelicals love to talk about forgiveness but not much about bona fide repentance and restitution! ( Why?)
 
John 19:5 And when Jesus came to the place, He looked up and saw him, and said to him, “Zacchaeus, make haste and come down, for today I must stay at your house.”
19:6 So he made haste and came down, and received Him joyfully.
19:7 But when they saw it, they all complained, saying, “He has gone to be a guest with a man who is a sinner.”
19:8 Then Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, “Look, Lord, I give half of my goods to the poor; and if I have taken anything from anyone by false accusation, I restore fourfold.”
19:9 And Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because he also is a son of Abraham;
Zacchaeus demonstrated his faith not only by his repentance but by restitution! “
 
FOR WE ALL TEND TO KNOW THAT THEY THE CROOKS, ABUSERS TOO,  NOW ARE NOT ABOUT TO STOP THEIR WRONG DOINGS. RATHER THEY WILL NEXT EVEN ESCALATE, CONTINUE IN THEM. AND THAT IS ANOTHER VALID REASON  THEY DO NEED TO BE EXPOSED, PROSECUTED AND STOPPED. EVEN FOR THE GOOD OF US ALL. 
 
And once exposed most people do not accept, support  a crook, even if it is a Minister now too.
 
Most people still rightfully do blame the governments, politicians, bad cops and bad judges, for the existence of much too many crooked civil and public servants, crooked business persons, crooked persons in Canada.  More Laws that are unenforced also tend to be still mostly useless too. Let’s simply just agree the whole system is often corrupt, eh?
 
We need better Policing and “Tougher penalties for sure!” You will get a longer jail sentence for robbing a convenience store of $50 than fleecing consumers,  investors for millions (billions) or stealing any of the tax payer’s money.    Put all of the criminals in jail, and their bad supervisors now too,  where they belong, and always do  take way from them all that they have stolen now as well..  Restitution of all items stolen should be in the criminal sentencing now as well..  Until people start getting fired and criminal charges are laid, the bad acts of theirs will continue. And do amend the criminal code to include a mandatory 5 year minimum jail sentence and a fine not less than 10 times the money involved, for breach of public trust. This amendment would cover all forms of corruption from conflict of interest to false accounting. By the time the first dozen or so of these crooks have been banged up – the rest won’t find a bad public office so attractive once they know they can’t abuse,  fleece the citizens, consumers, taxpayer.
 
Lying, thieving, alcoholic, abusive  priests, pastors, Ministers who cannot even change themselves for the good 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.
  
Clearly to me a preacher. Minister  whose lifestyle does not match his preaching words to others he rightfully cannot be trusted at all.. he is a false preacher himself.. some how most of them now wrongfully are like that too.  http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/09/26/conservative-pm-stephen-harpers-false-power-play/

A brother  had written to me some interesting comments about the need to deal with hireling type preachers and it should include their restitutions as well.. Would be nice if everyone practiced it now too. The persons emphasizing restitution too.

Funny some people claim they are God inspired when they continually do point out the sins of other pastors, but when I also next do  point out their own unacceptable, unrepentant of sins, hypocrisy they next often falsely say I myself am merely being bitter.. how doubled standard they personally now are as well.  Now to me what I hear from them it is still often just mere hypocrisy, coming from them.  I would be lying to you if I thought they now were actually honest and believable, for the last many decades now too sadly.. Really sorry too  but in sincerity for me now sadly still  I do not believe most of what they do  say is even being done in real truth, in real Christian love,  not even about the need of Christian restitution.. ..Rather sadly these critics or rather bashers, I have also often seen firsthand how some of these critics have lied to me, others, to themselves, and distorted the truths for  hidden personal agendas, hopeful  personal gains.. I also have seen  how they do  bully, abuse others, lie about them too, me included, to me they just always wanted to become someone important, to make themselves   more  important over others,  they are still the  false slave driver, and they are not important at all.. To me they are still the kettle calling the pot black.. and for me anyone it seems even you can be a so called Christian critic too these days and even claim to be God inspired, a prophet of the Lord too. For they often for sure are not Christians.. they are still trying to serve self and God at the same time..  it cannot be done. I measure how genuine they firstly are in the real evidence of their love too..
 
 
 
(Gal 6:1 KJV)  Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.

LK 17:3 “Take heed to yourselves. If your brother sins against you, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him.

if he repents, seems we do not see that firstly even from Ministers, most governmental criminals these days too..

Former N.S. bishop charged with possession of child porn.  Raymond Lahey, the former bishop of the diocese of Antigonish, is known as the man who oversaw a $15-million settlement with people who said they had been sexually abused by priests in the diocese dating back to 1950. He was arrested at the Ottawa Airport last week after members of the Canada Border Services Agency performed a random check of his laptop computer. Lahey has been charged with distributing and selling child pornography.  On Saturday, Lahey, 69, announced his resignation as bishop of the Antigonish diocese.

Reality sets in

 book of job

 We all do even  need to seriously know, differentiate between how God now deals with the wicked, those persons deliberately disobedient to him, he God does not go along with them for sure .. God’s conditional grace of forgiveness even does not extend to everyone..
 
(Psa 38:2 KJV)  For thine arrows stick fast in me, and thy hand presseth me sore.
 
(Psa 42:5 KJV)  Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance.
 
(Psa 51:10 KJV)  Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
 
(Psa 139:24 KJV)  And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
 
(Rom 7:18 KJV)  For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.
 
(Rom 7:20 KJV)  Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
 
(1 Tim 1:16 KJV)  Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might show forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.
 
(Jer 8:18 KJV)  When I would comfort myself against sorrow, my heart is faint in me.
 
(Hosea 13:9 KJV)  O Israel, thou hast destroyed thyself; but in me is thine help.
 
(Mat 11:6 KJV)  And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.
 
(John 11:25 KJV)  Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
 
(John 15:4 KJV)  Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
 
(John 15:5 KJV)  I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
 
(John 15:6 KJV)  If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
 
(John 15:7 KJV)  If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
 
(John 16:33 KJV)  These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. 
 
When a person  is young he or she, they are often now lead to believe that a whole world lies beyond them, a world of positive future, great potential and a great future, but that is only until God reveals the reality of all sinful men, that man is always sinful and there basically is nothing good in them. Job himself had such a direct revelation from God.
 
(Job 3:1 KJV)  After this opened Job his mouth, and cursed his day. 2  And Job spake, and said, 3  Let the day perish wherein I was born, and the night in which it was said, There is a man child conceived. 4  Let that day be darkness; let not God regard it from above, neither let the light shine upon it. 5  Let darkness and the shadow of death stain it; let a cloud dwell upon it; let the blackness of the day terrify it. 6  As for that night, let darkness seize upon it; let it not be joined unto the days of the year, let it not come into the number of the months. 7  Lo, let that night be solitary, let no joyful voice come therein. 8  Let them curse it that curse the day, who are ready to raise up their mourning. 9  Let the stars of the twilight thereof be dark; let it look for light, but have none; neither let it see the dawning of the day: 10  Because it shut not up the doors of my mother’s womb, nor hid sorrow from mine eyes. 11  Why died I not from the womb? why did I not give up the ghost when I came out of the belly? 12  Why did the knees prevent me? or why the breasts that I should suck? 13  For now should I have lain still and been quiet, I should have slept: then had I been at rest, 14  With kings and counsellors of the earth, which built desolate places for themselves; 15  Or with princes that had gold, who filled their houses with silver: 16  Or as an hidden untimely birth I had not been; as infants which never saw light. 17  There the wicked cease from troubling; and there the weary be at rest. 18  There the prisoners rest together; they hear not the voice of the oppressor. 19  The small and great are there; and the servant is free from his master. 20  Wherefore is light given to him that is in misery, and life unto the bitter in soul; 21  Which long for death, but it cometh not; and dig for it more than for hid treasures; 22  Which rejoice exceedingly, and are glad, when they can find the grave? 23  Why is light given to a man whose way is hid, and whom God hath hedged in? 24  For my sighing cometh before I eat, and my roarings are poured out like the waters. 25  For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me. 26  I was not in safety, neither had I rest, neither was I quiet; yet trouble came.
 
Apostle Paul himself saw himself as the chief of sinners..  (1 Tim 1:15 KJV)  This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.
 
Jesus also saw all men still as sinners.. (Luke 5:32 KJV)  I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
 
I still today, these days do encounter RATHER NAIVE people who refuse to admit, to see, hear  any negatives, especially ANY NEGATIVE REALITIES, the want and accept no criticism, even the same persons who only only want to encounter, hear only about the positives, such as good news.. or the gospel of prosperity… and some preachers wrongfully only feed them such food, babies’ milk..
 
The grace of God is not a cheap, free licence that will remove the negative personal consequence of any unrepentant, deliberate sins still.. I have really also learned  form observing many persons the last many decades that there tends to be no such thing as a little bit pregnant,  that to open the barn door even  a little bit, and next  left unrestrained, undisciplined, unsupervised, realy still means  the barn door next it will eventually swing wide open.. and when any person tends to personally allow, start a little acceptable vice, eventually the other even bigger vices do now also tend to grow, develop there as well..  and they too all thus next can be easily discovered, even though the guilty persons will deny this.. even now next the vices of pre-marital sex, sodomy, polygamy, alcoholism, gambling, adultery,  drunkenness, bingeing, gluttony, gouging, Self-destructive behaviors, selfishness, indifference, apathy, jealousy, anger, hate,   envy,   rudeness, irritability or grudges , lust, cussing, cheating , addiction, shoplifting, stealing, tax evasions and even abusive behaviors, pride, lying.  
 
(1 Cor 6:9 KJV)  Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10  Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
  
(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.
  
Personal Vices unrestrained are not only self-destructive but next also harmful to many others. They are not only limited solely as a result to one’s actions, but rather tend comprises of what is initially inside a person’s heart. (1 Cor 11:31 KJV)  For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.
  
Proverbs 6:16-19 clearly also declares: “There are six things the LORD hates, seven that are detestable to him: (1) haughty eyes, (2) a lying tongue, (3) hands that shed innocent blood, (4) a heart that devises wicked schemes, (5) feet that are quick to rush into evil, (6) a false witness who pours out lies, and (7) a man who stirs up dissension among brothers.”
  
(Gal 5:19 KJV)  Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21  Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
 
(1 John 1:9 KJV)  If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10  If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
 
(Eccl 7:20 KJV)  For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.
 
I passed by the field of the sluggard, And by the vineyard of the man lacking in sense; And behold, it was completely overgrown with thistles, Its surface was covered with nettles, And its stone wail was broken down. (Prov. 24:30-31)The unrepentant sins of any person, nation  has next still God’s negative corrections.. or punishments. The true  believer who sins in his walk with the Lord quickly regrets it, confesses it early, sincerely wishes to never do it again and does seek  to appropriate God’s power and grace to avoid it again. The false believer does not renounce his or her sin. The “sin unto death” is deliberate, willful, continuous, unrepentant sin. While God, in His grace, can allow  His children to sin without immediately fully punishing them. Next  there does comes a point when God will no longer allow any believer to continue in unrepentant sin. When this point is reached, God can sometimes decides to punish a Christian  even to the point of taking his or her life. Sins of grieving the holy spirit, human rights abuses can fall into this category.
 

 

The Non Christians rather too often deliberately do like to believe in the lie that God does not exists, or that God is dead, for  that way hopefully they will  not give a personal accountability next for all their sins, wrong doings to God. They are dreaming only. They will give a full account, so will we all.  Many a Christian even  have also a similar false doctrine towards their  sins, false reasons not to not to repent, they call it falsely the dispensation of, the age of grace, and they still lie when they say God will merely next forgive all of their  unrepentant sins or deliberate ones. God is not mocked for what one sows will they  reap..

The unrepentant sins of any person, nation  still even today has next God’s negative corrections.. for   God is not to be scoffed at. Galatians 6:7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for  whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.    

 

(Rom 5:8 KJV)  But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
 
(Rom 5:19 KJV)  For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.
 
(James 4:8 KJV)  Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.
 
 
 (Eccl 7:16 KJV)  Be not righteous over much; neither make thyself over wise: why shouldest thou destroy thyself?
 
(Eccl 7:17 KJV)  Be not over much wicked, neither be thou foolish: why shouldest thou die before thy time?
 
(Luke 12:3 KJV)  Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.
 
(Mat 10:27 KJV)  What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops. 28  And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
 
(Mat 18:1 KJV)  At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? 2  And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, 3  And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. 4  Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5  And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. 6  But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. 7  Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh! 8  Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire. 9  And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire. 10  Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven. 11  For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost. 
 
(Mat 23:11 KJV)  But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.  (Mat 23:12 KJV)  And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.
 
(Luke 11:49 KJV)  Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute:
 
We all do even  need to seriously know, differentiate between how God now deals with the wicked, those persons deliberately disobedient to him, he God does not go along with them for sure .. God’s grace of forgiveness even does not extend to everyone..
 
and next the righteous those people who put their trust in him.. God is merciful, kind to them, but not all professing Christians now are righteous for sure as well.
 

Bad people try to do many things.. if others let them do it as well..
 
Bad pastors, bad elders continue to exist  cause likely the congregation is bad too.  (Jer 5:31 KJV)  The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?
