"The spirit in which we respond to critics can be more important than what we say to them."

The beatitude about suffering for His sake had to have been read by me dozens of times, but it never made the journey from my intellect to my gut before today. I guess this is why none of us will ever live long enough to plumb the depths of God's Word.

Sadly, as always it has to come from the Word of Man.  God didn't convince you to be more Christlike.  Some dude made a persuasive argument to convince you.  Just like some dude made a persuasive argument to convince you to become a Christian in the first place.

Because behind the curtain is always some dude.

Just curious, as I have never observed The Wiz' behind the curtain, can you be fifty-one percent sure that The Holy Spirit does not exist, and cannot, therefore, have motivated said dude , behind or outside the curtain ?

The persecution complex of the Christians in this country is appalling. You have all the wealth, you have the best representation in all the political units and yet somehow you feel like you're a small oppressed minority. Wow! talk about paranoia! And then you wonder why you're made fun of?  Roll Eyes

"I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do, because I notice it always coincides with their own desires." -- Susan B Anthony

Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me ... where does the shame lie when humanity is fooled hundreds of times?  God for being so hard to spot among the charlatans?

Which dude behind the curtain are we supposed to assume is motivated by the Holy Spirit?  And what happens if said dude behind the curtain doesn't belong to the Christian religion at all but rather the Muslim or the Jewish or Mormon religion?  Or Hinduism or Buddhism?  And why is it always so much a circumstance of birth who the man behind the curtain is ... rabbi...imam...preacher or reverend?

Why does Christianity never spring up out of the blue somewhere without active attempts by men at conversion in that area first?   Why is Christianity still... 2000 years later ... only widespread and prevalent in realms and descendants of realms where it was imposed by force of law on the citizenry?  The Holy Spirit?  Or men?

How does one respond?  Just let them know we all get our answers in the end.

Sure, why risk a brain hernia trying to find a sensible response? Roll Eyes

I think I have given quite a few response MO.  Now, you don't like them but tough.  Nothing false or wrong with the solution that you WILL get your answers in the end.  It's as if you are terrified of that remark and you should be because there are no second chances after this life.

Sure I am terrified, that's why I am going to convert momentarily.  Grin

Aren't you tired of always repeating the same bull?

Do you have any idea of the number of times you've said that to me already?

Yes, because you are first of all, on a religion forum and often you are guilty of going down this road.  It's your soul MO, not mine that has to give an account to God.  You are rejecting him and thus you will answer to him.  Going back to your remark, we get our answers in the end.  Afterall, this is PRECISELY what all of this discussion is ultimately about, the end of our natural life and what lies on the other side.  You are claiming nothing is going to happen upon our death, that we simply cease existence.  I am stating that this is just a snapshot of God's eternity and that after this life we are then facing his eternal judgement or forgiveness based on our decision during this life.  That leads to the ultimate conclusion that we get our answers after death.  One of us is wrong.
