Hi everyone!
I just wanted to share a couple of lines from Gerrard Winstanley's "The New Law of Righteousness." I believe he's got something here..:

"The manifestation of a righteous heart shall be known, not by his words, but by his actions; for this multitude of talk, and heaping up of words amongst professours shall die and cease, this way of preaching shall cease, and verbal worship shall cease, and they that do worship the Father, shall worship him by walking righteously in the Creation, in the strength of the Law of Love and equity one to another. And the time is now coming on, that men shall not talk of righteousnesse, but act righteousnesse. Jer. 31.34 Joh. 4.23. And they that in these times, will not observe this Rule, to walk righteously in the Creation, waiting quietly till Christ come to restore all things, he shall have sorrows, troubles and discontents of heart within, vexing, grudging, rash passions, he shall have no true peace, but be filled with confusion, and be a slave to his lusts."


Blessings!
Brian

Powerful stuff.

It's what we DO that matters to God. I think He could care less if we consider ourselves religious or post on forums all day long discussing theology.

I struggled for the longest time about me being a couch potato christian and my dad being an agnostic but volunteering in soup kitchens. I'm going to heaven and he's going to hell? Somethin' ain't right with that.

Action speaks more effectively than words that is full of air. Beware the leaven of the.................so to speak.

The servant that says "yes", but does not?

No! It's the servant that says "no" and then does it that's favored.

I can't find the verse, but I know He said it.

I can't find the verse, but I know He said it.

Matt 21:28-32 But what do you think? A man had two sons, and he came to the first, and said, ‘Son, go work today in my vineyard.’ He answered, ‘I will not,’ but afterward he changed his mind, and went. He came to the second, and said the same thing. He answered, ‘I go, sir,’ but he didn’t go. Which of the two did the will of his father?" They said to him, "The first." Jesus said to them, "Most assuredly I tell you that the tax collectors and the prostitutes are entering into the Kingdom of God before you. For John came to you in the way of righteousness, and you didn’t believe him, but the tax collectors and the prostitutes believed him. When you saw it, you didn’t even repent afterward, that you might believe him.

What are friends for...
