Do you think some of your posts directed at me have been disheartening?

I said I wanted to fight the good fight in another thread and you said, basically, that I spit on Paul for saying that ALL are God's children BEFORE they believe.

I don't recall ever posting something like that to you, or anybody, for that matter.

Here's what you posted to me: "Your belief system spits on St. Paul's face with these lies the moment the axe pierced the skin on his neck. I will be here for a very long time, fighting you off from this corner of the net."

I don't think the ignorance is deliberate on the part of the individuals who adhere to it, even though I do think the religious system which corrals people into said ignorance was originally set up to do that on purpose.

Those trapped are my brothers and sisters and I don't blame them - I blame the system.

pcamps...it's eerie...this always comes to mind whenever I read posts that are full of venomous counters masquerading as concern and warning...the days of Queen Mary of England when papal Rome was given full authority to exercise "in the name of god" what they saw fit...

Religion fights for correct doctrine.

God fights for people (whom He wins over with an overwhelming arsenal of unconditional love).

I am am a gleeful casualty of that war.

You had to single us Brits out didn't you . only joking .

I agree and without fail it's all done in the Jesus ,well made to look like it is with statements like this"God bless you all in His Holy name, Jesus Christ, our Prince of Peace, our Mighty God, our Everlasting Father, our Counsellor and Advocate", but the truth is , it's done in defence of doctrine.

It's also very evident what Sciota is doing , he has been rattled by the amount of opposition he's had recently , so what does he do ? try's to form allegiances with all who reject UR , then boasts "He likes a good fight for Christ" , sounds like a Phillistine's giant boast to me , creates a bunch of new threads to counter the truth of UR(But the gates of hell will not prevail) and becomes judge and jury towards any who disagree with him . And he's talking about fighting a good fight ?(what with the sword of religion, watch out you might just lose an ear) , it's got it's beginnings in the flesh and will bear all the frut of it.

You all know who you are that support me, and those that do not.

I pledge to keep them occupied while you all can talk about the more edifying tenets of the faith that lift up the body of Christ. I will be your soldier here.

I don't mind a good fight for Christ.

God bless you all in His Holy name, Jesus Christ, our Prince of Peace, our Mighty God, our Everlasting Father, our Counsellor and Advocate.


I don't mind to fight the good fight against the doctrines of fear that keep people bound in the chains of religion and assertions of false doom.

Whenever I hear this phrase from folks who believe God will snuff out His children forever or torture them mindlessly forever, I always imagine somebody in a boxing ring, fighting. The round ends, the bell rings. They turn around expecting Jesus to be in their corner ready to wipe their face with a towel and give them a little pep talk. But Jesus ain't there. They turn back around and look at who they've been "fighting for Christ", and see Jesus standing there.

Except that is a wishful thinking scenario. That they would actually see what's really going on.

In most cases, they do see Jesus in their corner, giving them a towel and a pep talk. But little do they know, it's really just their carnal man standing there with a rubber Jesus mask over it's face.


Makes you want to just run up there, rip off that fake Jesus mask and knock out that man in their corner for them. Take the towel, wipe their eyes, and spin them around so that they can see that what they thought they were fighting "Heresy! Heretics! Lies!" is actually Jesus. Is actually, God's LOVE! But. It's not for us to do.

I know a lot of us have been through this VERY scenario.
And when that Jesus mask fell to the floor and when we were confronted with WHAT and WHO we were REALLY fighting... when we were confronted with the REALITY of the situation, it DOES feel like you've been knocked out. But guess who is standing there with a towel wiping your face and giving you a pep talk? That's right. And don't bother tugging at the face, it's not a mask. It's the real thing.

And that's where the REAL LOVE of Christ starts to truly infiltrate your being. That's when what you thought you had knowledge of... slowly dissipates into the vapor that it really is. That's when He starts to truly reveal Himself to you like you would never have believed possible before. That's when the doctrines of man (the foundations of wood, hay and stubble) are burned up out of your mind/heart/soul and are replaced by the everlasting, indestructible foundation.. HIS LOVE.


peace..
