With all due respect I have a question. Where did that job come from and how much does it pay if I to apply for it?
Most do it simply for self-satisfaction. An added bonus is the pushback and free insults you like.
Basically the pay stinks and the benefits are worse.

‭‭James‬ ‭5:19‭-‬20‬ ‭KJV‬‬
[19] Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him; [20] let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.

If your brother sins against you.. maybe, yet in any case, it is not our job.

Brethren, even if anyone is caught in any trespass, you who are spiritual, restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness; each one looking to yourself, so that you too will not be tempted.
If your brother sins against you.. maybe, yet in any case, it is not our job.

I tried, take your insincere posts elsewhere. Bye goga

That's exactly what I was talking about, with the attitude "save the world" we can't even communicate with each other humbly, let alone "save" someone.

This was not the proper response to James 5:19-20 (which is true and has nothing to do with the verse you quoted). So now this thread is becoming more and more unprofitable. Time to wrap it up.

It seems like there is a bit of an arrogance coming from your insecurity. I have nothing against anything, just trying to look at things from different perspectives, not just a doctrine, which came from hard core religion, that was slaughtering people in the name of God. There is no reason act childish and defensive.

As far as proper response.. it was. I was implying to the verse with the intention to show, that not everyone will appreciate us telling them what they are doing wrong. If they don't listen, they are nobody to us, and we have no obligation to waste time and effort. And no, it is not our job, it has to be desire to care, not the obligation to abide.

This was not a response to a Bible passage. It was a response to the question about our job to correct brothers and sisters. You must be bored. If you continue to post irrelevant things and lies, it will become evident.

This was meant for goga, and yes, this thread is becoming a mess.

Have to admit, you are doing great job in correcting wrong doers. I'll have to abide with your advice.

Yup, written over 2000 years ago, how long is "near" I wonder?
Hi… Well, I don’t believe we’ll have to wait much longer for the Day of the Lord—so we wait watchfully…
For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night.

Is it possible to close a thread here, I don't know how
After several days of needless attack by those who did not have the respect, and or care to actually read this post. I have learned that many people are more interested in animosity, the very thing that creates division. The style frequently used here is of subtle deception. ( did God say you will die, you will surely not die?)This post did not create division. It flushed out the cancer already present here. I had some honest, caring exchanges with a few and I thank you all for that. I don't know the process for closing a thread here. I consider this thread closed and will no longer reply.

But you couldn't resist a parting shot and self justification on the way out. You seem to enjoy the ceremonial seat at the front rather than sitting with us tax collectors and sinners at the back.

True words, many here serve sin, not Christ.

Jesus came for us. That's why we serve in the back, give Him the glory, and have treasure in store in heaven.
What has been revealed in your responses is that you desire the praise of men, lack real discernment, and are self-deceived. You are awash in pride, lack self control, and have placed yourself at the judgment seat.
Spiritual people judge themselves and leave the judgment of others with God.

Just like the Jewish leaders, you could not refute the holy spirit "real time' in our exchanges. Read them! Now that I show self control and end the thread, you have nails and hammer in hand.
Enjoy the hissing!

I have. There was nothing to refute. People merely added perspective and you didn't like it. When they continued in their stated perspectives, you judged them guilty of sin and told them to repent. Those who agreed with you, you praised. I'm aware of exactly what happened.
Notice as I shared, I only showed you what is true of you, and for your consideration. I never presumed to call for repentance on your part. I'm not the judge of all the earth. Correction is fine. Judgment is not.
Better to judge ourselves and remove planks before we go toothpick hunting.
Make what you will of my discernment, but it was never meant to cause you harm, but to edify, despite what you may believe.
