because i dont believe anything about it. i am not called to proselytize. i dont go around feeling guilty about being me or having my calling or any of that. god knows what he made. thats his problem, if its a problem. and if its not a problem for him, why would it be a problem for you? you dont like what the lord has me doin? so what?
when we are "saved" we are given a measure of faith and a measure of the love of the truth. faith hope and love.
For I the Lord love judgment, I hate robbery for burnt offering; and I will direct their work in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them.
ding dong christians get their panties in a wad over judgement, yet thats what god loves. they just get it backwards all the time.
Thus saith the Lord of hosts; The fast of the fourth month, and the fast of the fifth, and the fast of the seventh, and the fast of the tenth, shall be to the house of Judah joy and gladness, and cheerful feasts; therefore love the truth and peace.
the truth IS love. you cant speak it without love. love is deliberate.
Ephesians 4:14-16Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
14 that we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 15 but speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: 16 from whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.
god that people would grow up. there are no adults around me.
2 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2 that ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 4 who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. 5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? 6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. 7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. 8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 9 even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10 and with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 that they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
not only does it appear that paul lost corinth, the thessalonians werent too far behind, it seems. he warned them, sternly. they apparently didnt listen. you should listen. the man of sin is a christian problem, not a worldy one. the anti christ is just like christ. he is a mirror image, and that image is a very good likeness. just like man can be made in the image and likeness of god and yet ne only evil continually. you just dont get it.
1 Peter 1:22
Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:
it takes obedience. you get understanding after you obey, not before. the world teaches and then you go do. with god, you do and then he teaches you.
1 John 3:18
My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.
2 John 1:1
The elder unto the elect lady and her children, whom I love in the truth; and not I only, but also all they that have known the truth;
only when you have followed and done can you know the truth and be free.
2 John 1:3
...truth and love.
3 John 1:1
...love in the truth.
