That is your opinion and you are welcome to it.

Matt 4:17 Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

This one convinced me of similar beliefs as my dear friend Mystic, the Lord is found within, but it didnt last very long in the same sence as my dear friend. Now the Lord is within in the form of the Holy Spirit but many, including myself have a bad habit of quenching the Spirit with bad fruit and end up missing something. You see there are many spirits trying to get us to ignore the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit allows this to happen to let us grow in our own time. Many fall away and many chase after these other spirits and you can see the working of such spirit in hostile rhetoric and denial of truth. This is what happens when people try to eat meat but can only stand milk. You know even the apostles where still only on milk til death because they they still had thorns in their sides. So long as their is sin in this world no one will know meat.

No one is interested in the actual words of Jesus within the Bible? But so many claim to know Christ. If you trully know Christ then why not address His words, or are you afraid of the truth which many reject?

Red words of Jesus is OP.....There are many Word of Jesus that this thread could be so vast it is beyond description or be Locked out for off topic because of the unusual thread that it is ........... In Matthew 5: 13-16... Jesus said ..``You are the salt of the earth but if the salt have lost his savour where with will it be salted? it is therefore good for nothing but to be caste out, and to be trodden under foot of men....You are the light of the world A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid...Neither do men light a candle and put it under a bushel , but on a candelstick; and it gives the light to all that are in the house.........Let your light so shine before men , that they may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in Heaven``...........................Jesus is talking about the light of the goodness of the purpose of the works of the Lord God and his people in the view of the world for the purpose that this goodness will attract men and women to be part of this belief ....... as in the metaphor of the salt and light which represents as a pure white substance in his description of Works for Gods Children........In Evangelism people are called to pure and generous in heart which represent a pure white heart which is very unusual for the World and if this Evangelist show a pure white heart then they must Know God and can be attractive to the lost people looking for truth....... and the world through the devil will speak against evangelist and evangelist are challenged by the devil no doubt, but the plan of God is the salt of the earth is a pure good witness........

Well Mystic has reminded me of my own thread, of course he sees it as a failure but life goes on.

Mark 1:15 The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

I have addressed this one in another thread which I have gotten alot of good responces. Turn from the world and turn to Christ, He lived a sinless life, died for all mans sins, and rose by His own power but the gospel in this exerpt is that God lived amongst us as a man and now live within those who believe.

Red Word of Jesus are OP...... In Matthew 5: 17-20 Jesus said .....``Think not that I have come to destroy the law, or the prophets; I am not come to destroy but to fullfil....... and who breaks one of these commandments and teaches men to break these commandments are the lest in the Kingdom of Heaven , but theses who do and teach them are the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven ..... That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and the Pharisees you shall in no case enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.``............. See Jesus did not come and destroy the law and the prophets , because the Holy Spirit who came after Jesus ascended into Heaven is the Lords Spirit who is inbred with all the laws of the character and nature , and supernatural that the Lord authored to His Children of the earth ...... all these old laws that God brought to Moses and the prophets for His blessing are inbred into Holy Spirit who lives in Jesus Believers ...... but the Judgments of Moses are not the laws that is in breaded, but the character of the heart of God and will be enhanced in the fruit of the spirit that Believers enjoy, and the authority of God laws will be discerned by Holy Spirit for HIS blessing .... and this righteousness that must exceed the legalism of the scribes, and the pride and aloofness of the Pharisees .....Jesus overcomes his rule by the righteousness that is a GIFT who righteousness come from Jesus and him alone , for the righteousness of believers will never cut it ........ This is gospel.......

Red Word of Jesus are OP...In Matthew 5: 33-37 .Jesus said ..``you believe this ``you shall not forswear yourself , but you perform to the Lord your oaths ``.Then Jesus said ``Swear not at all, neither by Heaven for it is God`s Throne .... Nor by the earth for it is footstool, neither by Jerusalem for it is the city of the Great King, neither swear by your head , because you can not make one hair white or black... but let your communication be Yes , Yes, or No or No .. For whatever comes more than these comes of evil``...... .. See if you make a confession than make sure that you know that it is so and any oaths of compromise before God , if you say something than do it or don`t say any oaths at all ....... there may be a flip-flop ideas that you made an oath and letter recanted and when everything came to naught then you blamed God .... If you pray the sinners prayer then believe it , then turn from sin and be baptized ,Or never say the prayer and leave the people who got you to do that ,....... Your yes be yes or your no be no and Jesus will trust were you are ........ Just like a wife who believed for a dress as a gift and never said to her husband anything about it, and was mad when he could not read her mind and buy the gift................

Red Word of Jesus are OP.......In Matthew 5: 43-45.....Jesus said..`` You have heard `you will love your neighbor and hate you enemy.... but I say ``Love your enemies, bless them that curse you , do good to them that hate you and pray for them which despitfully use you and persecute you, ...That you may be the children of your Father which is in Heaven for he makes the sun shine on the evil and on the good and sends rain on the just and on the unjust....for if you love them which love you what reward have you?... do not even the publicans the same?, and if you talk only to your brethren only and not others ? do not the publicans do also? Be you perfect even as your Father which is in Heaven..``...... Jesus is teaching that isolationism even to thoughs who are your enemies is not of God , because God does love all and he is called to the sinners who can be converted and not left out of God plan for their lives ..... See most evil in the world is a indirect influence from the evil Spirit who hate God , But God can clean every body who turn to him and free them from the evil Spirits who push people away from God....When Christians pray for sinners God can take notice and even clean the blaspheming spirit away from evil minded people and help them come to HIM

I am going to keep this one alive and challenge everyone to read the red letter words of the Bible that are attributed to Jesus Christ. You are free to discuss content and context but the point is to read the words to see the character of Christ.

Anyone who is not willing to do this is not worthy of any responce from any Christian and any attacks will be ignored.
