Agreed! Humility is KEY. Pride has absolutely NO place in the Kingdom of God. Everyone considers others better than themselves; no "I told you so" or resentments or "I'm better than you."

Truly, loving others as much as you love yourself, really means seeing to their welfare. Empathy, supportive attitude, encouraging, always ready to lend a helping hand. -The father of the prodigal son didn't bring up his mistakes, or say "well, I don't know if you deserve it really.." or such like. No. He was always ready to help and take back in.

This is all, imo, part of the "debunking" of eternal hell, which is none other than doctrines of devils and an eternal Father who doesn't care at all.

Blessings,
Brian

absolutely! well-said

one thing I wanted to mention...this proves that God is good ALL the time;why else would He choose to bless them with a baby? God is the author of life;some can belittle them but it was ultimately God's choice (not saying I agree,but I'm not going to judge them, either) :

After listing all these great attributes about Jesus,how can anyone think that He would turn into 'destructor Jesus' during the rapture and literally come to wreck the world when removing beleivers? This doesn't fit.If there is a rapture,I believe it will be just as He said..He comes quietly,as a thief in the night. (and He doesn't homewreck families,either. ALL will be taken,or none at all.)

The whole rapture is looks a lot like a wedding ceremony. (much of the Bible is)
The young man (Jesus) goes to the father (Father) of his girlfriend (people) and agree on a bridal price (His life).
If the father agrees the couple is betrothed. The man goes home and prepares the bridal chamber (many mansions). The father once in while inspects the chamber. Only the father knows when the chamber is ready (not the couple). Then the father gives his ok. The man gathers some friends to 'steal' the bride. At night the go towards the girls home and blow the ramshorn (trumpets). The girl, a virgin of course, prepares herself.
The groom stays behind and the friends of the groom carry the bride to the groom. They go into the bridal chamber for 7 days. (7 years...)
When they leave the room the guests are already waiting and the feast begins.

Is that parallel just a coincidence????
