Thanks Ricard . Because he speaks both balanced and open about troubles, he speaks the truth. But his theology is a bit off. 'sick' in James can be sick/ill physically, but/and also spiritual/emotional sick: โ€œAre any among you sick? They should call for the elders of the church and have them pray over them, anointing them with oil in the name of the Lord. โ€

@86ul:privacytools.io86ulIndeed, a theology that is a bit off, simplistic, but still a truthful theology.12:21:47
@86ul:privacytools.io86ul Why balanced and/or open about troubles? He speaks calm and humble about the danger of being Christian. 12:23:25

Hes one of the few pastors who arent affraid to talk openly about the evil corruption without being affraid of hurting your feelings.

As for being sick, I dont recal him limitting it to just being physically sick. He may have made a comment about not being affraid of a virus, but to be honest, neither am I. I may not go out to shops as often as I used to, but its not out of fear of catching a cold. I just avoid places that bark at you for not bowing down to the "Health Recommendations". I have yet to wear a mask, as for social distancing... Ive always given people distance. Gives you more time to react when they try to mug you ๐Ÿ˜.

@86ul:privacytools.io86ulThat is true, I fully second this and him.16:17:06

The real job the saints rarely spend time doing:

โ€œThen saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.โ€ Matthew 9:37-38 (Authorized Version)

Yet... theyโ€™ll argue over opinions of Godโ€™s doctrines!!?! Why waste the only time you have left on this earth... when you have no idea when the key of death is turned for your life!?!?

How many souls have you planted seeds, and/or watered seeds - of The LORDโ€™s salvation and His righteousness and coming judgement?!??

Are you winning souls with the talents He gave you... or, is your time better spent guessing how the mark will be implemented? Or, what prophecy has been fulfilled?

We were giving a job folks... preach the gospel to every creature throughout the world... IT IS ALL ABOUT WINNING SOULS!

โ€œFor if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;โ€ 2 Peter 2:4-5 (KJV) NOAH PREACHED OVER 100 years

โ€œAnd daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.โ€ Acts 5:42 KJV

Win souls folks... win souls!

Amen!! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’ซ

Thank you for reminding us of the entire purpose of our life.

I once saw a speaker fill a jar with marbles, each representing a week in the 18 year period you might have your child in your home. He suggested removing a marble every week to keep your mind focused on using the time you have to train your child wisely. I personally would have large marbles for weeks under 10 y/o, regular marbles 10-15y/o and 15-20y/o small marbles. Training children is nothing but an exercise in God training you with your own mouth. One of the most difficult things for a child to do is to put themselves in someone else's shoes. Maybe at first the actual mental act is difficult but it is soon easily accomplished, what is most difficult is the heart to want to choose it. Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child and foolishness never wants to obey God's commandments, after all, the fool hath said in his heart "there is no God."

(Matthew 22:36-40)
Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

Loving thy neighbor as thyself, in action, is the Great Commission. The Christian young in the Lord, though a new creature, like the new born babe, has much to learn, and only precept upon precept. Unlike your fallen and imperfect biological father, your new perfect Father in heaven has given you a perfect book with all the instructions you need to learn each precept, often times multiple precepts from the same verse read at different times. Like the child in your home, who has a limited time for training and then a limited time to use that training, so does the Christian. You cannot put away childish things without growing in God's Word. You cannot WANT to obey his commandments without the discernment and wisdom from God's perfect Word. The foolishness bound in the heart of children, and young Christians, will cause them to remain focused on themselves and the immediate world around them. The wise will be focused on eternity and the people around them.

II Corinthians Chapter 4
Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not; But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every manโ€™s conscience in the sight of God. But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesusโ€™ sake. For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesusโ€™ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh. So then death worketh in us, but life in you. We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak; Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you. For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God. For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

yes, thank you for reminding us!! ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’ซ

@calleduntoliberty:matrix.orgCalledUntoLibertyProverbs 22:3 (KJV) A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished. (CEB) Prudent people see trouble and hide, while the simpleminded go right to it and get punished. (BBE) The sharp man sees the evil and takes cover: the simple go straight on and get into trouble. (CEBA) Prudent people see trouble and hide, while the simpleminded go right to it and get punished. (CJB) The clever see trouble coming and hide; the simple go on and pay the penalty. (CSB) A sensible person sees danger and takes cover, but the inexperienced keep going and are punished. (GNT) Sensible people will see trouble coming and avoid it, but an unthinking person will walk right into it and regret it later. (GW) Sensible people foresee trouble and hide [from it], but gullible people go ahead and suffer [the consequence]. (MSG) A prudent person sees trouble coming and ducks; a simpleton walks in blindly and is clobbered. (NAS) The prudent sees the evil and hides himself, But the naรฏve go on, and are punished for it. (NCV) The wise see danger ahead and avoid it, but fools keep going and get into trouble. (NIRV) Wise people see danger and go to a safe place. But childish people keep going and suffer for it. (NIV) The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and pay the penalty. (YLT) The prudent hath seen the evil, and is hidden, And the simple have passed on, and are punished.
