What makes you think someone is trying to kill you?

I agree. But, some can't find comfort any other way than "bible/my way or the highway". While I don't worry about them harming me with that mindset, they DO worry about their spirit being "killed" by those who don't go their way.

It's the messiah complex (also known as the savior complex).

Don't be so sure!!! And I also don't mean asking him into your heart.

What changed the course of my focus was reading Jeremiah 9....'know and understand me"....maybe around 2006-7.
What? We can know and understand the very mind and heart and being of God Himself?
And off I went ...and was successful a few years later!

I see it as I speak it.....the truth that is, God's word.
I shall reveal myself to anyone who loves me and keeps my commandments and my Father and I shall love him and we shall dwell within him because he keeps my word.As it is written;
"The man who keeps the commandments he has from me is the man who loves me and the man who loves me shall be loved by my Father, I too shall love him and reveal myself to him. "
Quote:
"The man who loves me keeps my word and my Father shall love him
and we shall come and dwell within him. "
Yes, loving my neighbor...one of the 2 commandments.

Love is my interpretation, and keeping his words, meaning practicing all of them, Free4you...
and what you do for the least of these you do for me.
You are one tough cookie...gotta find some fault wherever you go it seems.
Pick pick pick.
I'm moving on from your posts. C'ya, take care. Best wishes.

Kinda like;

"No one can come to the Father except by me."

Man, Jesus sure had a problem. It was his way or the highway.

Nobody's trying to kill you.


Some people, including me once upon a time, try to connect you to reality. Thus far, to no avail.

I was quoting Jesus but in a way You are trying to kill my ways which would kill my spirit if that could actually happen. I don't really think it will happen.

Jesus meant the same thing though they did actually think they killed him.

"Blessed is He who's way is blameless, who walks in the law of the Lord. "

You have a wonderful way of memory.
Its just that when it comes to communication. You shouldn't worry about being yourself and giving a gentle and modest opinion.

Gentle people typically will not respond well to a hint of anger without cause.

You have the Word so close to your heart.
There's no need to overwork yourself here in this forum.
If you have any friends to share with in fellowship. Enjoy their company where likemindedness is closer to your own.
Even if is in a congregation or bible study. Not everyone will have the Word flow exactly like yourself.
Even so remain in the vine.
And give with fruition to those who are in need.

Blessings Always.
