This shows that Betsey is afraid that there are eternal consequences and it may be contagious... That is not the spirit of love because perfect love casts out all fear. God's perfect love doesn't make someone fear that they may be dead or burned forever... does it?

I was under the impression that all men and women are sinners, and that we sin each and everyday. If so, we all have to work for forgiveness. No one is better than anyone else, for in the eyes of God a sin is a sin. I wonder how God will treat all the people who claim to be blameless and speak for Him. I hope more mercifully than they treat their fellow man.

Heart breaking...so much is focused on contending who is and who is not right...it's a wonder we forget to show love and compassion...

This not about who's right and whose wrong, it's BIGGER than that! For we all know...(whether we can agree with each other, or not) THAT GOD IS THE ULTIMATE TRUTH, yes?

I know without a doubt, that I speak not only for myself, but for many others here, that it's about the ultimate battle of GOOD and EVIL. And in this battle for souls...there's only two sides! God's and Satan's. Not you and me! Not who is right and who is wrong, like YOU said.


There's so many that's undecided, that deserve to hear the truth, the whole truth, nothing but.....and rightly so! And, we're here to tell it! ALL OF IT! Not just the parts that tickle their fancy. His desire is that NONE perish.....We don't want you to perish. You don't have to love us, we love you, that's it, that's all. You don't owe us anything. There is nothing in it for us, other than, we must do the will of our Father. Can you see pass all that other "stuff" and understand that? It's much bigger than us, it really is. The day that I stop winning souls to Christ Jesus, is the day that I'm no longer here. I understand and know this.

I walk with my Christ Betsy (he won me way before I knew you existed)...I pray that you take a pause and reflect on whether your method of winning souls is counter productive. It behooved me to have a tarty reply simply because you failed to see that the "right or wrong" pertained to our view of God's TRUTH.

My final dialogue with you and God Bless...

To each their own.... The way He won you, may be quite different than how He wins others. My method....I don't have one. When HE prompts me to shut my mouth, I will! I rely on Him to keep me in perfect balance. And, keep in mind that He made us all different, in order to make a difference in the world. Goodnight, or is it morning.....

4 If the common people ignore those who give their children to Molech and do not put them to death,
5 I will condemn them and their families. I will exclude them from the people. I will exclude from the people everyone who chases after Molech as if he were a prostitute.

6 "I will condemn people who turn to mediums and psychics and chase after them as though they were prostitutes. I will exclude them from the people.
7 "Live holy lives. Be holy because I am the LORD your God.
8 Obey my laws, and live by them. I am the LORD who sets you apart as holy...

22 "If you carefully obey all my laws and my rules, the land I am bringing you to live in will not vomit you out.
23 Never follow the practices of the people I am forcing out of your way. I cannot stand them because they did all these things.
24 I have told you that you will take their land. I will give it to you as your own. It is a land flowing with milk and honey. I am the LORD your God who separated you from other people.
26 Be my holy people because I, the LORD, am holy. I have separated you from other people to be my very own.

Suppose I say to a wicked person, 'You wicked person, you will certainly die,' and you say nothing to warn him to change his ways. That wicked person will die because of his sin, and I will hold you responsible for his death. Ezekiel 33:8
Suppose I tell you that wicked people will surely die, but you don't warn them or speak out so that they can change their wicked ways in order to save their lives. Then these wicked people will die because of their sin, but I will hold you responsible for their deaths. Ezekiel 3:18

But suppose you warn the wicked people, and they don't turn from their wicked ways. Then they will die because of their sin, but you will save yourself. Ezekiel 3:19

"If righteous people turn from living the right way and do wrong, I will make them stumble, and they will die. If you don't warn them, they will die because of their sin, and the right things they did will not be remembered. I will hold you responsible for their deaths." Ezekiel 3:20

"But suppose a righteous person turns away from doing right and he does evil things. He does all the disgusting things that the wicked person did. Will he live? All the right things that he has done will not be remembered because of his unfaithfulness and because of his sin. He will die because of them." Ezekiel 3:24

"When a righteous person turns away from doing right and does evil things, he will die. He will die because of the evil things he has done." Ezekiel 18:26

...I will always warn until there's not a breath left in me...

In Christ's love...In His truth,
Verna.
I find it quite peculiar that after your presumptuous deluge of judgement and ugliness, you attach to your signature:

"In Christ's love.

...presumptuous...?...well...what can I say to you helio666...I simply lovingly, out of compassion for the state of your soul, quoted God's word for you...so you're calling God arrogant and ugly...not me.

How sad it is for you to not know God...to not know what the love of Christ is within a person...I pray someday you will...but that will mean you will have to have a "relationship" with Him...which will not happen until you accept Jesus Christ as your LORD and Savior...and become born-again...changed...into the character of Christ, and live your life in obedience to His Commandments.

In Christ's love...In His truth, helios666,
Verna.
