Amen. It is the christian way of life only that can withold the demonic forces unleashed on mankind. But a united church as one body in Christ (international) has not been accomplished yet. Christians have exposed a lot, but a lot of them have become very (and I mean very) worldly. Too comfy imho
I've learned it's a waste of time for me to go around judging others, I need to focus on my own backyard and clean it up! lol! :giggle:

1. You're right, those "white" protesters don't really care about blacks. They're just showboating how woke they are. They're scared and trying to appease the blacks because BLM really means "Burning Looting Murderers."
2. Why should I care more about black lives than I care about white lives? White lives matter!
ALL lives matter. :love:

I’m trying to say: People let television and this world form them and not their faith anymore. People wait for a proces to happen while forces are at play since we were born. We just get thrown in this reality where our sins grow to be blind spots. It’s not just blm, it’s about everything we engage with in real life on this world.

But if people try to force a political agenda on ourselves or other people, should we not judge that?

I’m not political. I pray for those in government but, I don’t have any desire to enter the political arena.

God raises up prophets to speak to leadership and governments.

I believe Martin Luther King Jr. was a prophet God raised up to speak to America - MLK Jr. had a dream and he spoke it - every word of it.

Just like all prophets- he was killed. God recompensed his death and took JFK and Bobby.

Jesus did nothing with the Romans occupying Jerusalem......His kingdom is not of this world.

ALL LIVES MATTER TO JESUS, AMEN. :love:(y)
LOL Yes. I agree. All lives matter to Him because He saw fit to die for all our sin.

But for everyone else, some lives matter more than others. The lives of our friends and families matter more to us than the lives of outsiders. The lives of productive people matter more to a society than the lives of criminals. The lives of our soldiers matter more to us that the lives of enemies that they're killing. There is no sin in that type of in-group preference. It's actually virtue.

I just like to say WLM because it's a categorical statement that you are totally opposed to the marxist, anti-Christian BLM movement. I'm not trying to get along with them. I'm not looking for any common ground with them. I want them gone because they are satanic.

I think it is honorable what you are saying :). I have been to Africa many times. In our church, we have many from the Congo and Nigeria. IF God has placed it on your heart I pray with you all Children on the Continent of Africa would be saved from oppressive men. In Jesus' name amen.
You have been to Africa many times? I find that to be impressive.

Let me put it this way; if others force sin on you, should we not condemn the sin? Seems many today pull up their shoulders and simply parcitipate.

it depends what you consider sin. There is a sin that is unto you. but not unto others.

There are sins that are done unto others and being sold in our stores for instance.
If a person sells goods which are attained by very sinful ways, you get to know with these sins but it’s governmental allowed; does that make it ok?
People around me don’t find me a nice person anymore and they say christianity isn’t doing me good. But I see that the other way around, humanity is not doing the world any good. We kill our own species and even unborn children. I’m not nice against people around me putting those things into relative perspectives. But I’m not mad either.

No, but I have been known to backslide......:unsure::giggle::love:

All my sins have been dealt with and taken away from me by the Blood of Yeshua/Jesus. All my righteousness is filthy rags that I traded with Yeshua/Jesus for His Righteousness which is His Body - I am NOW the Righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. Hallelujah!

I am sealed, baptized and filled with the Holy Spirit. Here's where the FUN begins.....:D

Every day is a choice to love God and follow Him..... it's very easy if I stay FILLED with the Holy Spirit, however, if I neglect the Gift of the Holy Spirit then my flesh gets stronger and I backslide.

Along comes the Accuser of the brethren - "You're NOT SAVED! You're still sinning!"

Be careful, the Accuser is a LIAR!

I need to stir up the Gift of the Holy Spirit daily and throughout the day by singing songs in my heart to God, reading, studying, meditating on Gods Word - the Bible, fellowshiping with other believers, praying, talking with God about everything...... so that I can walk by the Spirit and NOT fulfill the lusts of the flesh.

Sin is GONE, but my flesh has to be dealt with so, I take up my cross, deny myself (flesh) and follow Yeshua/Jesus.

Truly, born again believers are NOT sinners anymore.

Sinners are lost and condemned without a Shepherd (Yeshua/Jesus Christ) - they belong to and are blinded by the god of this world which is Satan.

There is NO CONDEMNATION for those that are in Christ Jesus - these are born again saved believers that get into trouble with their flesh because they haven't learned to stir up the Holy Spirit within them - they backslide and wander off and the Good Shepherd herds them back into the flock - they ALWAYS have a Shepherd! :love:(y)
Amen .

The very act of using the dollar to buy things is sinful IMO, because the dollar is not backed by gold, but rather it's backed by weight of the US military enforcing the petrodollar. A giant scam. Not to mention the graven images on those dollars. Using them for currency violates the prohibition against dishonest weights and measures.

It's clearly sinful, yet we do it everyday. Like Isiah said how he was unclean and lived among unclean people. But IMO the greater sin would be to run off and live as a hermit in the Yukon. I think God wants us engaging the world and that is going to involve getting dirty. Be in the world but not of the world. You pretty much have to engage in commerce. But you don't have to sell your soul, climbing that corporate ladder. You don't have to utter the lie that "George used to be a man, but now she's, Georgina, a woman!" Even if it means you'll lose that promotion or get fired.

What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. For he that is dead is freed from sin.
Romans 6:1‭-‬7 KJV

Do you buy meat? do you buy clothes? do you have a car? What about fresh fruit and vegetables? IF you have then you should get rid of all of it because each of them do the very something you are mad about batteries.

What if I don’t eat meat, sold my car, don’t buy clothes from child labor and don’t even buy clothes that polute by washing cheap inkt out?
I was just talking in general, we are ALL sinners and it can only be cleaned by His blood. People put faith in humans like politicians, follow morals how they are coded on tv while we’re all guilty of that what is being condemned. But because we don’t like being condemned this grows as blind spots for society.

Sinners are forgiven, don’t get me wrong. It is not because we eat a hamburger we go to hell. But if we know something is asking too much of this world and keeps leaving less and less behind for generations to come; that is very selfish. To deny ourselves, how far must this go?
