Of course I wouldn’t be trying to preach to them at a time like that no more than I would be In church trying to tell a man politely not to use the womens bathroom,I would toss them out,I think you misunderstood what I said an argued a scenario of your own making.
I know I'm difficult. I apologize for that. It would be so easy for me to just cherry pick to make the bible say what I want. Preachers for years told me via their sermons "what to think and what to believe." I never really needed to read the bible and think what am I really being told here? The preacher said "believe Jesus is the Son of God, believe that He died on the cross to pay in full for your sins, do your best not to sin and remember to tithe, thats all you need to know"
So when I read just the words that the Son of God said, Jesus himself never EVER said his dying on the cross pays for humanities sins in full if they believe He did that for them. Show me the spot where Jesus says this if I'm mistaken.
Instead when I read I read things like Jesus is the only Begotton son of God. Believe what HE says if you want to get to heaven.
.. and Jesus then says specific things to enable us in heaven, such as very few people will ever catch on as to how ( Matthew 7:13-14) to get to heaven, and I find when I reach out to talk to people about this they get awkward, uncomfortable and defensive.
I really hoped that I"d be able to find those here in Christian chat that would say "ahh well here's where the bible gives the answers you're seeking" rather than the current experience.
I'm thinking the reason I'm not finding easy answers that I've missed, is because they don't exist.
I'm also thinking that until they do I'd be wise to defend my family in time of trouble and pray that God will understand, forgive and have my back.
Thanks for your input.
