What do these scriptures mean?

(1/3) > >>

fullarmor2:
Jesus speaking.   "If your eye offends you, pluck it out, for it is better to go through life with one eye than to be cast into hell where the worm does not die and the fire is not quenched".
     Jesus said something similar to this again only that time he talked about cutting off your hand if it offends,  and then he said the same thing about hell. What do these verses mean or what do they teach us?
              Thank you in advance for help on this.
   

studier:
It is not literal, it is metaphorical. He was talking to the Body of Israel, the assembly of people who have been held back from the God because of certain men. These men were religious bigots, who created laws upon laws to justify their sins, instead of submitting to God. So Jesus was talking about the Pharisee and Saducee would lead Israel into the Lake of Fire, and Israel had a choice cut them off or they will be cut off. You find more understanding concerning this in Matthew 23 and the judgment of Gehenna.

bobf:
I think Jesus is teaching us that if we serve idols intead of God, God will judge us and it won't be fun.  So, at all cost, don't serve them.

 good concept Craig , seeing that 
  but also seeing it more personally  as Paul claims for us  having members [ within and without ,as well as  others]member , hand foot  eye etc....... with Pauls mind he delighted to serve the Living God having now the mind of Christ [ or Christ being the Head]  and  he would  follow the Spirits leading and Will [desires]  but he speaks of in his members [body of death ] that went to warring with his  New Mind ,   this is what to me Jesus refers to as  saying  do you think i come to  bring  peace ?  nay  BUT divisions ![ its  starts within us first to me ]  in luke 12 verse  48-53
 our members   must be   brought down to all obedience to Christ or CUT OFF ,,
 thats what im seeing  as well as your   concept bro .. 
 for all  inward jews as we are  as the  first   that shall be LAST   as scribes , readers of the  LAW . pharrisses , Seperate our selves from the world as holy  but smoke in Gods NOSTRILS  and hypocrits  ,  SAY BUT DO NOT DO!   as Jesus told one to do as they say , but not as they do ...    say they love God and yet hate their brother   a good example  for me anyways ..
 
   1Cr 9:27 But I keep under my body, and bring [it] into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.
 a Castaway..........Gr. adokimos, ( 1Cr 9:27), one regarded as unworthy ( R.V., "rejected"); elsewhere rendered "reprobate" ( 2Ti 3:8, etc.); "rejected" ( Hbr 6:8, etc.).
  like   the bad fish parable or tree branch etc ..

  hope this may  help in some  way   a little  fullarmor2 

  peace and Gods grace to you and yours  rose

The pharisees being the example of all flesh,inward by application,..all things made NEW in HIM

That SMOKE in his Nostrils..That self righteous stench of unclean Rags

Isa 65:5 Which say, Stand by thyself, come not near to me; for I am holier than thou. These [are] a smoke in my nose, a fire that burneth all the day.
