To Clarify, I am not bashing, just looking to get a better understanding of how our nation identifies with faith.
I’ve had this question on my mind for a good while. It concerns how our country deals with God’s possible prophets and those who feel they are warriors of God.
a man,sees the sky opening and hears God’s voice tell him to destroy another person for blasphemy or something. The man carries out the order and then is imprisoned. Why is this? We all know its God’s thing to only show himself to one person at a time and make them do something out of the ordinary. It is also common knowledge that he uses extreme ways to communicate (burning bush etc). So in a country that is 83 percent Christian according to ABCNews, shouldnt there be a different view on those that are ordered by God?
Prophets are to be thoroughly tested before belief in their prophetic word to be true. After Jesus died and rose again from the Tomb on the third day, kind of unnecessary for that stuff, but I can not judge if it is actually true.
Homeless guys who say they are Jesus
How do we know they arent? Has anyone seen Jesus? Wasnt Jesus a bum, by standards? Again, 83 percent of the country says Christianity is their faith, yet they see their possible king and tell him to gget a job.
Read revelations and you will understand. Unless you consider a Rabbi a bum, I doubt Jesus would look like a bum. And you do not see many homeless people with a horse, eyes of fire, and legions of angels.
Why do we look down on, medicate, or imprison those who might actually be God’s servants? Yet, on Sunday drive to a church where a preacher, who is supposed to live a modest and faithful life has a Hummer and a mistress in the congregation?
No one said a preacher is supposed to be modest, it’s a suggestion so they will not fall in to a trap of sinful ways. A mistress is not necessarily bad unless it is breaking vows and is deceitful in nature. The reason, because society has moved away from the truth. If they are really God’s servants, then it is sad they are in that position, but for some reason they are. [/quote]
Ok, let’s say you killed me, right? At your trial you say God made you do it. Do you think
A. You’ll be taken for psych batteries
B. You will be tested to determine your one on one relationship with God
Homeless who claim to be Jesus is the focus now. If that guy who asked you for a dollar yesterday suddenly told you that he was Jesus what would your reaction be?
and I’ve always been taught that preachers were to remain faithful to vows as well as their wives. I guess that is wrong too. As for modesty, wasnt Christianity based on a teaching he huddled masses of poverty? So with that in mind how can you follow a man who contradicts what he stands for? Unless I’m wrong about Jesus being poor too?
