Do not insult Gods People?
« on: November 14, 2010, 02:51:07 AM »
There are many people who will claim that being in a Self proclaimed Christian means that offending them is a more serious sin than offending the non-Christian.  Somewhere in the scriptures it speaks against sinning against your brother or sister only applies to those in a certain congregation.  However what the traditionalists do not understand is that Brother and Sister refers to all humanity, not just those in their church.

I agree! Well our priority is to the family of believers but the damnationalists almost make it seem as if we should distance ourselves  a bit from the rest of mankind (while pretending to "love" them and give them the "good news")... While we don't wanna associate with people who make us stumble in the faith, I think it makes us love ALL people more if we don't brand them as damnation-borne (before we even preach to them)....

As someone who's embraced orthodoxy, I resented most people of the "world" for not seeing the "truth"... but as in Romans 2, I am no different if I judge them.. ;) let's invite them to the Victorious Gospel and yes, brothers and sisters encompass all humanity.

Absolutely! I've never understood that! How we could convince someone of the love of Christ if we are separated from them and too good to associate with them whatsoever.. Whereas UR makes us realize we are all of us in the very same boat. None choose God!! Nor have they ever! And that old saying "by the grace of God, go I" is most certainly most true!
Jesus said "If I be lifted up from the earth, I will draw all to me" ~ Ps 22:27-"All the ends of the earth will turn to the LORD-every knee shall bow-all tongues confess`Jesus is Lord`" ~ iF there's 1000yrs between Trumpets (beginning of the long 2nd advent of Jesus) and DOA/2nd resurrection, then is there 500yrs between DOA and Tabernacles?-"God will now tabernacle w/ man"Rev21. For 500yrs judgment day the HS will convince the world of sin? & at the concLusion of, all those(still) not believing will go to"age-lasting" LOF?
~ If 1st advent fulfilled the Spring Holy Days, 2nd fulfills Fall 1's?
