What matters most

Why Didn't God Make Us Robots?

Think about it! It would so much easier! We would not have feelings, tears, emotions, pride, thoughts or a will; all things that often get in the way of life. If God had only made us robots it would be so much simpler, right?

I am not the first to ask this question, but I have pondered this idea several times over the last few months. If God had only thought to make us robotic, then there would be no struggle between good and evil. Problem solved. Hello heaven!

But God in His omniscience saw ahead of time and knew that we would fail and fall and need Him. He wanted us to be able to choose Him. He wanted us to have the choice to love because He knew that love without choice isn't love at all. He gave us a free will so that we could choose to be in relationship with Him. I believe that God giving us a choice had more to do with His glory and satisfaction than it did with our liberty. After all, we were created in His image ultimately for His glory.

Doesn't the value of any good deed go up in our minds if we believe that it is done out of genuine love rather than out of an obligation or command? Of course it does! That must be how God feels about us when we choose Him.

Robotics is a popular movie theme, and in many of those kinds of movies, the robot starts out with little or no consciousness or self-awareness, but tends to evolve over time. Writers and producers can even create personalities for them and they can be "good" or "evil." In the real world, we are not quite that sophisticated, even though we keep relentlessly striving to create that perfect robot that could substitute as a person.  

Pictured to the left is a real, life-sized robot designed in Japan in 2005 that from a distance looks very human. (It is actually glued to the floor.)  "She" can spit out information, but "she" will never have a soul or mind or know God like we can.

A robot can be programmed to obey, but it cannot be programmed to love or to respond intuitively. So God chose to create people rather than robots to recieve that genuine love back from us.

We know God has emotions because the Bible uses words to describe God's intense feelings about us like "desires" and "loves."  He is actually pursuing us, so we must be worth having!

"You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body
and knit me together in my mother’s womb.
Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.
You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion,
as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.
You saw me before I was born.
Every day of my life was recorded in your book.
Every moment was laid out
before a single day had passed.
How precious are your thoughts about me, O God.
They cannot be numbered!
I can’t even count them;
they outnumber the grains of sand!
And when I wake up,
you are still with me!"  Psalm 139:13-18 NLT

God thinks about us. He plans for us. He loves us. Robots could never replace the uniqueness of a human being. Simpler, yes. Rewarding, no.

triggers, the tongue

If one is not a part of the problem or not a part of the solution, should one be quiet?

Triggers like a gunshot from the tongue, either kill, steal and destroy or help, one or the other happens, even if not meant to happen do these happen or not? One way or the other they do, even with good intentions, So how do we know what to say when to say and when to be quiet?

I think the answer is right here in Scripture:

Matthew 10:16-20

Living Bible (TLB)
16 “I am sending you out as sheep among wolves. Be as wary as serpents and harmless as doves. 17 But beware! For you will be arrested and tried, and whipped in the synagogues. 18 Yes, and you must stand trial before governors and kings for my sake. This will give you the opportunity to tell them about me, yes, to witness to the world.
19 “When you are arrested, don’t worry about what to say at your trial, for you will be given the right words at the right time. 20 For it won’t be you doing the talking—it will be the Spirit of your heavenly Father speaking through you!
Where are these synagogues today, the arresting of? Is it as we see it in Jail or courts, or much deeper than that? Is it this world plain and simple, no matter where we are at we are in this world,. How can we not be a part of it?

Maybe verses 19-20 answer that, maybe?
Since God knows all, it is wise to trust God for the right words to be said and not sad afterwards, maybe?

I know how many times I spouted off with the right intentions, and made it worse, anyone else? And then feared, stressed and worried over the next time. Wanting to say and do what is right, you too?
Well take those verses as meant for you maybe as well, to trust God to give the right words through you and surprise yourself. I know I have been surprised many times and it has put me more and more in a trusting to God mode and thus put me at rest in trust.
Pray anyone reading here might start if no9t started to do this trust God, whom does just love you

Life is a gamble

Truth verses error
Life is a gamble is it not?  Full of. Decisions, daily is it not; bad and good ones, yes or no? And we are left to learn from them, first usually anger and make even further mistakes while angered right, sound familiar? So how can one cut out this anger over things not going right? Is it even possible? I am talking about one’s reactions to things not going how we think they should, when they do not go as thought they should have. How can we cut out these no good reactions of anger? Do these no good responses bring out a domino effect? One domino falls onto the other and another and continues until someone intervenes true or false? So in our anger that needs expressed does this not happen, in the same way? Anger first and is anger by itself okay? Without any harm to self or others I venture to say anger by itself is not the problem is it? More like what one does with their anger is the problem, yes or no?

Flesh is never satisfied, only temporal at specific times in conjunction with what is at hand to them at the moment as to if that one likes what is happening or not happening at that moment in time. So we are a fickle people are we not? 
So no need to get our feathers in a ruffle, when this happens is there? We could just praise the situation, cutting out the thief that steals, kills and destroys one’s joy by letting the anger rule over us, letting it the enemy have its own way, that is not us is it. Just some spiritual food to chew on and swallow in thanksgiving and praise, that through Faith in Christ the enemy has been taken away, so stay here in truth over error(s) Trust God to see you through knowing anger is the enemy.

How can anyone fight an enemy when the enemy is self and one does not see this? Anger, is okay to be angry, to respond to angers call, to harm anyone is not okay, you think? Do we have post it notes of imperfections, posted all over our minds? Where we are told to be perfect and told we can’t be perfect at the same time? And so, yet are told to be the best one can be anyway, since we are forgiven, we are well?  This is true,(we are forgiven) but are we well? So in the same breath are we not needed to be perfect, and take on the strife to be? And since we can’t be perfect, do we still strive to be?
So how can we be perfect, since it is impossible for man to be perfect, and striving to be does not work either?
Only by God is this a done deal delivered via the cross to us Christ did this for us, if we believe he did? And now most ask did he?
in the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:

So if the above is true, which it is, can anyone change truth, can anyone make themselves better equipped than Holy? The Scripture goes on to read that if you keep the Faith in this, you do well, and as well if you believe Christ is risen from the dead and alive today forevermore, you shall and are saved. Will you stand steadfast in this no matter what happens to you here in this life?

Therefore, we can and are able to do all that is right, not out of fear, out of love in response to God’s type of love in 1Cor. 13:4-13. Therefore it is tooooooo!!!!!!! Simple that it is hard to see truth as truth is. God just love you this deep.

Trinity compared to electricity

Father Son and Holy Spirit compared to electricity
Father is the power source; in electricity. Now like for a toaster to do its job toasting, it has to be plugged into the power of electricity, so it can create toast as is what the toaster is made for. Without the power the toaster just sits there and you can put bread in it, and it does nothing without the toasters God, electricity.

Lamps, the bulbs that light in them, are made this same way, to glow, light up, when power is applied. Power (God) needs a neutralizer to tone down his power, and this neutralizer is his Son, Jesus Christ an extension of Father. When just Father was known as in the day of Moses, the light through Moses was so bright to the people that Moses had to wear a veil over his face. Light overcomes darkness, as we all know when we turn on a light in any room. The darkness is overcome, still there, but not seen. Hidden from us and so we can see, by the light, and as soon as the light goes out we can’t see, yet our eyes do try to adjust to see.

So Jesus being the completed lamb of blood neutralized God’s overwhelming power. Blood being the payment that keeps God from killing us that deserve to be killed, not being perfect as were originally made to be. It is the blood that God passes over the people and does not kill us, by Christ’s final Sacrifice of blood; this is done for us, which is Mercy to us all. Thank you Jesus in being our neutralizer, and so teach us Father how to walk as Son whom you are pleased in, doing all that needed to be done for us, being perfect in our stead for us.

Then now as in Electricity to keep one from being electrocuted, there now needs a grounding, to be grounded and settled in the hope of this high calling, known as the Holy Spirit of Father, the very same one that led Christ. Is the coupler, which Christ listened to and did as led in saying and doings. This same Holy Spirit of Father that led Christ the Son is sent to us to do the same, if we listen and do as Christ did. This started on the Pentecost day. The fiftieth day after Christ had been reported risen and seen of over 500 witnesses as alive. Where for the first forty days he taught his disciples all the reason for all that has happened so far. Which is by his death he took on all the sin of the world  onto him, being our propitiation to all sin, taking it all out of the way of Father, so that Father could view us through Son as perfect, even though we are not.

Again Christ the neutralizer, tones down the power that by itself kills us, not being perfect, and then even so, we need to be grounded in God by the Holy Ghost of God, the same Holy Ghost that led Christ, to walk as Christ walked, is the only way, as Christ well showed us all, to walk by Faith in Father, hearing what Father says to do and doing it in following, not leading as mankind does this, playing God himself.

So the Holy Spirit of God, truth grounds us, to keep us from being electrocuted. Just as the ground wire in electricity does this. When ones touches the power and metal at the same time, one is shocked and will be electrocuted, if can’t let go of this connection of electrocution. But we can thanks to the ground wire in electricity. Seeing the Holy Ghost as the same to keep us grounded and not go overboard to death.

Have you ever been shocked by electricity or seen the sparks from electricity, when one takes the power and it touches metal? Or better, ever done any welding or seen the after effects of welding? Done by the power touching metal directly with no lamp to light in between the hot and neutral, sparks thus fly all over the place, and therefore if we are not grounded we die when we get shocked and can’t let go, we get electrocuted, if there is no grounding for us to let go. Those that have been shocked know this, when they were able to let go, when they felt the shock go through their body. Thank God for the ground wire, as in Thank God for his Spirit to come and live in us, and through us by Father’s lead as Christ did this through out his ministry in all power and doings he did proving himself as God in the flesh, perfect flesh for us to take on by him, through his death we are dead to flesh as well. Then by the resurrected Christ we are made alive in Spirit and truth from Father as one with God and Son. Nothing you and I can ever do to change this or make it be, it is what it is, and the sooner one accepts this Mercy after begging for it, knowing they need it, the sooner one walks as Christ walked.

We the people are God’s lamp today if we choose asking God to, light us up. But please people lets be grounded and settled
Here is the Gospel in a few scriptures:

Colossians 1:21-23

New International Version (NIV)
21 Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of[a] your evil behavior. 22 But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation 23 if you continue in your faith, established and firm, and do not move from the hope held out in the gospel. This is the gospel that you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven, and of which I, Paul, have become a servant.

In a nutshell you all, do you believe God just love you this much that he went to the cross for you to die in your stead to give you new life in his resurrection, in Spirit and truth.
What other way is there to serve God? Except by Spirit and truth John 4:23-24 tells us

good morning

Good morning to all.
Offended and offending are prevalent and I am seeing we all have this trait in each of us, whether we mean to or not, it is there, how and where is it hiding in each of us?

Are we not offended when we feel we are not heard? whether we are right or wrong are we not offended? And what do we all do in retaliation to our not being heard as we feel we are not heard?
Do we get intense, and have to retort and force our thoughts onto each other, I am guilty, can't answer for anyone else, but I am intense to get my point across and not hear yours, yours or yours, or not even take the time to ask yours if I do not see your point(s)
I Apologize and am in desire to learn this truth to listen and hear others view point to this amazing God who has reached down to us through Son Christ, to redeem us, reconcile us, and be our death for us, in going to the cross and die for us, as to how we should respond, in confidence, just as it says in Scripture we now can approach the throne of grace in our time of need. And I am now seeing my time of need 24/7, I have tried to run the race, and run it I have, and running it I still am. And now see to do so with less intensity, being caught up in am I doing well enough or not. Does God still love me, even though I got angry? whether a lot or a little, or even just being so intense. it is like throwing up on everyone I meet, them not knowing me, and here I am bringing the conversation around to another as whether or not they believe, and them, just shutting me off, me thinking I am doing so well, when I am deceived into thinking I am doing good when I am not

I apologize to anyone even here I have ever offended, never meant to, praying for me to listen better, and not throw up all over anyone again, and turn them away from the love presented to us all, from/God no matter what we do or not do as long as we do not harm another and stop to hear that we can even though we do not meant to. I call it getting self-righteous, being on fire for God so much, intensity takes the place of just trusting God to do through me, than I jump ahead and think I am doing for God when I am not being humble as I know to be, my own intensity has deceived me
Thanks for listening from anyone. I can't promise to listen, but I can say I aim to, and will by father's love be able to
For God as I see it does just love us all, that is what is changing me to see what I just stated

Truth or error is the dare

Truth or error is the dare

  • Howard Schultz If viewed as rules then yes, for rebellion comes from the commanding of others and self too
Suzanne Reynolds Again...............all part of the game and the way you choose to play it....don't take it too seriously anymore.....just books, quotes, ideas and ONENESS
Howard Schultz As mankind thinks, so mankind performs, emotions predictably react to thoughts, no matter whether the thoughts are right or wrong, so in essence emotions of anger, not well, feeling sorry want control of the person(s) to do the leading over reality, and by this emotion running the train, (being in reality the caboose) The train jumps track. so seeing this as being Human is smart, yet do we not still need the emotion to be the result not the lead

Just a little something to think about::

Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life

AKJV Translation is:
For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

Note: the different translations: one states it as as long as you do not sow (think) to please their flesh, will not reap destruction!
The other reads, whoever even thinks of their flesh will reap destruction, whether they want to or not

So how are we doing in trying not to do something we think about often that we do not want to do? Especially behind closed doors, and every time end up doing what we do not want to do, and stay guilty, and ask for more forgiveness, feel forgiven and stand right back up to not do it again and still do it again?

Something has got to be not right, yes? Did God or does God not want us to not do what we know not to do? A big yes or no, will turn around the outcome here, maybe, if you are worn out, in the energy (trying to stop this ongoing problem) maybe, ready?

Are you sure? Okay
God does not want you to stop sinning, why?
Because you can't, you are in the Flesh Nature alive to be selfish and if death knocks on your door you will choose to live and not die, right? Kill or be killed, right? Is this not what we are taught here on earth? 
Why does God not want me to quit as an example committing Adultery in my own mind thoughts? Or getting anger in my way and yell at my significant other, behind closed doors?

("Because we can't"), How; long have you personally tried, or have you ever tried, being convicted by others, and or by reading the word?
Do we not see the truth that we are born after the similitude of Adam after he fell and knew he was Naked and had to cover up? And went and hid, not wanting to be exposed?
I admit, I have had bad thoughts and lashed out in anger in the past, and "I" could do it again and again and agian, and have in the past. Each time after sought forgiveness and stated "I" will never do it again, anyone else in agreement and are doing this and have and could again, even if have stopped it for now?
And what do we do? Every time I wish to do good I find me doing it for a short while, maybe a week, maybe two or just a day, either way, "I" a war going on in me, do you see the same in you? And whenever you do good, do you get a thought that says hey look at  you, you have not gotten angry for the last week or two?
What pretty much happens from that thought as soon as you say why yes, "I" have?
Do you see pride, boasting, prejudice, clouding you as if you are better than others? As if God who loves us all the same, is saying look at you as he said this is my Son, in whom "I"(God) am well pleased?
You decide is that what God wants from us, to be perfect? And you as "I" just replied why yes perfect is what God wants from us?
So the question then is how can I, you, or anyone else be perfect, since, we now see we can't and are stuck in the trying to be and just can't quite do it. I mean I know we are taught to be and can't, can we?

What does scripture say, by Christ we are, what did Christ do fro us in Father's view?
in the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:

Is the above Scripture truth or error, I dare you to make you Holy as Christ is? When you see you can't, maybe, you, I and all that see this might give up, you think and agree with Father that through Son we are made Holy to Father point of view, and if we do this, we are then presented to Father in us seeing this now are we not?
How will we respond to this after trying for so many years to be made Holy, through trying to be Holy, and finally seeing the only way to be is by accepting God. For it is done for us through Son Christ?

So I can relax now, right and rest now right and trust Father that it is done, responding with thanksgiving and praise right?

What happens the moment you have doubt in this accomplished done work of Christ for you?
That has  made you Holy by his death, are you able to see the new life in trying to do what is already done for you? No, why
Because again we are back to works of self, masquerading as if God is behind it, when it quite possibly is not, but the pats on the back from others is convinced that is not true, it is from God, I know because my Church says so, if I do good God will reward me.

And Christ said do not do your good works as to be seen by men, truly that is the only reward they will get, and do not be like the Heathen, praying prayers over and over again, or disfigure yourself to gain attention, truly these that do such have gotten their reward
Rather go in private and pray, and Father who knows all secrets will openly reward us, for Father knows all our needs before we even ask
So the? Remains, do you believe Father through Son that by Son you are Holy, before Father, whether you sin or not?
If you do sin, are you still forgiven through Son or not?
You decide, if you want the new life where you walk in dependence on self efforts, thanks to Father, in deception and keep on sinning, taking Father's grace through Son for granted, as we all have been doing; being taught wrong, to ask for more forgiveness after we are forgiven by Christ when we have by lip service said we believe, do we?
Is there any more forgiveness to be executed to us from Father through Son, since his Son is done and already went to death for us?
I think great you have the Zeal, the want, the desire to do right by Father through Son and are busy doing your best to be like him and can't can you? Me either
So what do we do? Ever thought to give up, God does not want me to stop sinning, because when I try, I find I can't and am perplexed when I am of the thought that God wants me to stop sinning, and I do not.
Well so then if we see this, that we can't, why are we still trying, going from guilt to try again and if succeed at it, get boastful and proud in ourselves thinking Father is pleased with us if we do and not if we don't. When quite possibly Father is not pleased either way?
Can you now see it is all God and  none of anyone else, all glory goes to Father through Son, and see they are one yet two?
Prayers to us all, to see truth that sets us free from stress and worry, while in the midst of troubles here on earth. to give us Faith that has no doubt in Father through Son. And by this Faith it is done, from Father's sight we are now Holy thanks to Son, no second guessing, truth is truth, so now go walk in it, praying Father reveals this to you, and me each day as I have agreed to reckon me dead to my Adam nature I was born with, being transferred to Christ the Second Adam that did it right, and did not take a bite from the tree of death as Adam did. Therefore you all we have new life right here right now in the resurrected Christ in Spirit and truth. To be alive in Spirit of Father is wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Praying you see to stop works and believe Father, and then be led by Father to do or not do works of Father, not mankind’s, that appear right, and deceive us.
Love you all and hope for this:

Ephesians 3:16-18

Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
16 that he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; 17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; 

When we see what I wrote the Love of God for you first, then you will see and love as God does. It is not an effort it is what it is, it is a response, where ones burden and yoke is light and easy as Christ said it is. So take it on and believe no matter what others say or do. Father will do with them, and either they will believe or they will not
Remember this song anyone
So are we going to carry on and just love all, no matter what and do this by trusting God to teach us not mankind as mankind has taken over as oracles have they not?
Love forever in Spirit and truth to all
Homwardbound, for Christ came to set us free and we shall b e free indeed, shall we not?

What is a Taskmaster?
 One who imposes tasks, especially burdensome or laborious ones.
 A source of burden or responsibility: The profession of medicine is a stern taskmaster.
a person, discipline, etc, that enforces work, esp hard or continuous work: his teacher is a hard taskmaster.
a person who assigns tasks, esp. burdensome ones, to others or who supervises others' work rigorously.

And Christ came to give us freedom from Taskmasters, and after the cross we are under the guise of this freedom, and yet trapped in it, in fear of losing one’s job if we state how we might feel. For we have to have an income to support our families, and so fear rides the wave that keeps us trapped here in this world.

So seeing this and been in this, do we not plan what to do to stop or skirt around this, taskmaster world? To what point do we do this?
Do we do this written below, when we know we are, going to lose our Job or might in threat of losing it, go out and make friends in order to be safe, if we lose out from our Job?

Luk 16:1  And he said also unto his disciples, There was a certain rich man, which had a steward; and the same was accused unto him that he had wasted his goods.
Luk 16:2  And he called him, and said unto him, How is it that I hear this of thee? give an account of thy stewardship; for thou mayest be no longer steward.
Luk 16:3  Then the steward said within himself, What shall I do? for my lord taketh away from me the stewardship: I cannot dig; to beg I am ashamed.
Luk 16:4  I am resolved what to do, that, when I am put out of the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses.
Luk 16:5  So he called every one of his lord's debtors unto him, and said unto the first, How much owest thou unto my lord?
Luk 16:6  And he said, An hundred measures of oil. And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and sit down quickly, and write fifty.
Luk 16:7  Then said he to another, And how much owest thou? And he said, An hundred measures of wheat. And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and write fourscore.
Luk 16:8  And the lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely: for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light.
Luk 16:9  And I say unto you, Make to yourselves friends of the mammon of unrighteousness; that, when ye fail, they may receive you into everlasting habitations.
Luk 16:10  He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.
Luk 16:11  If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches?
Luk 16:12  And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man's, who shall give you that which is your own?
Luk 16:13  No servant 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. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

In Luke 16:8 it states and the Lord commended the unjust Steward (Who here is the Lord) is it the unjust stewards Master?, I think so or Jesus speaking would have said he commends him for this, and he did not say he or his Father commends this.
Luke 16:9 is going on to say what his Master says, a backup plan. You know like save your money, get a nest egg, and so on and so forth. How smart we are as mankind to devise plans to save our lives here on earth, using whomever, in being dishonest to gain something as if we are going to inherit everlasting life, you think? Not, and the rest I think explains itself

When did Jesus ever say to save up? Did he tell his disciples to carry extra gear?

Just a little food for thought, being in this fallen world, under Mammon as it’s Taskmaster?

Is unbelief, to some extent why?
1 John 4:18
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil.

There is a fear to have, and it is of evil, not God, for god is not evil. If one decides to part from evil, then they are on their way to know Father, God and then one comes to understand 1 John 4:18

So there is a reverent fear for God, and there is a fear of the people, that do evil, that includes self you think? For we all have done evil have we not, and we all have the potential to do it again is this true?

How do we do evil, in fear of what? Not having a job, being homeless, no money to buy groceries, if one ever gets in that position, a relevant scripture is:

Luke 16

Living Bible (TLB)
16 Jesus now told this story to his disciples: “A rich man hired an accountant to handle his affairs, but soon a rumor went around that the accountant was thoroughly dishonest.
“So his employer called him in and said, ‘What’s this I hear about your stealing from me? Get your report in order, for you are to be dismissed.’
“The accountant thought to himself, ‘Now what? I’m through here, and I haven’t the strength to go out and dig ditches, and I’m too proud to beg. I know just the thing! And then I’ll have plenty of friends to take care of me when I leave!’
5-6 “So he invited each one who owed money to his employer to come and discuss the situation. He asked the first one, ‘How much do you owe him?’ ‘My debt is 850 gallons of olive oil,’ the man replied. ‘Yes, here is the contract you signed,’ the accountant told him. ‘Tear it up and write another one for half that much!’
“‘And how much do you owe him?’ he asked the next man. ‘A thousand bushels of wheat,’ was the reply. ‘Here,’ the accountant said, ‘take your note and replace it with one for only 800 bushels!’
“The rich man had to admire the rascal for being so shrewd.[a] And it is true that the citizens of this world are more clever in dishonesty* than the godly* are. But shall I tell you to act that way, to buy friendship through cheating? Will this ensure your entry into an everlasting home in heaven?[b] 10 No! For unless you are honest in small matters, you won’t be in large ones. If you cheat even a little, you won’t be honest with greater responsibilities. 11 And if you are untrustworthy about worldly wealth, who will trust you with the true riches of heaven? 12 And if you are not faithful with other people’s money, why should you be entrusted with money of your own?
Are we not all guilty of this unrighteous mammon (money). Do we not all scurry around not to lose our earthly wealth’s?
So let us not be like the man that goes into the temple with another, one says:

Luke 18:9-14

Living Bible (TLB)
Then he told this story to some who boasted of their virtue and scorned everyone else:
10 “Two men went to the Temple to pray. One was a proud, self-righteous Pharisee, and the other a cheating tax collector. 11 The proud Pharisee ‘prayed’ this prayer: ‘Thank God, I am not a sinner like everyone else, especially like that tax collector over there! For I never cheat, I don’t commit adultery, 12 I go without food twice a week, and I give to God a tenth of everything I earn.’
13 “But the corrupt tax collector stood at a distance and dared not even lift his eyes to heaven as he prayed, but beat upon his chest in sorrow, exclaiming, ‘God, be merciful to me, a sinner.’ 14 I tell you, this sinner, not the Pharisee, returned home forgiven! For the proud shall be humbled, but the humble shall be honored.”
Are we listening? We do have two ears right, is that so we can listen twice as much as we speak? God put them here right two ears, one mouth, you decide, listen to God the creator of all or this world in the way it is set up, as in do to get, with unrighteous money.
Well then how can one survive, is the? At hand

Micah 6:8

Living Bible (TLB)
No, he has told you what he wants, and this is all it is: to be fair, just, merciful, and to walk humbly with your God.

Micah 6:8

New King James Version (NKJV)
He has shown you, O man, what is good;
And what does the Lord require of you
But to do justly,
To love mercy,
And to walk humbly with your God?
So, go about life and do as justly as possible, if and whenever one fails, love Mercy, do not take it for granted and walk in humility, do not think yourself better than anyone else for the rain rains on all, whether good or bad, get it
Do what you can for the situation you are in, and pray for Mercy in it
Love to all, Homwardbound

A christian chat convo

A Christian chat conversation

How and why was Abraham saved and justified?
He believed God, trusted God, and thus did as God said, not by force, by trust as many trust others and not God and get hurt, and grow suspicious and get angry, yet not from God. God does get angry and is righteous to smite anyone anywhere anytime
Read it all over in the First Testament, see the righteous anger of God

My answer, as I am seeing this thanks to God:
then come to the second Testament and see the fulfillment of god's anger, being appeased, settled through Son, and say thank you in appreciation, see this love and rejoice, do not please let self works or think they are God's works and lose this first love as we are warned of in Revelations. do you all remember your first love, or have you seen or felt this yet. If not seek it. It is overwhelming, and man has stolen it through a must do works program masqueraded as from God when it is another deception from the Devil. I stand in the blood smothered and covered, thanking Christ for this, so that I, and all can learn directly from Father, being delivered to Father as Holy, thanks to Christ.
Colossians 1:22 in the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:

Do you believe this, then you will receive this, thus you will see this
