It is not about reading it. It is about using it as Jesus said. Some people won't read it because they have been indoctrinated the wrong way.

Did Jesus wipe out hunger? He could have.

Disease? He could have.

I do help others with donating to charities. Though Jesus didn't.

Did Jesus visit people in jail? No. Not even His own cousin because it is not about that. Man thinks like man.

Think like God!!!

Keep God's word and you will live.

I know Him and I keep His word!!

Did it ever occur to you, that he wants you to do those things.
Or, do you expect others to do it for you? Oh, ye of little faith.

Think about it. Jesus says;

My sheep follow me!!

Abide in my words!!!

Worship in truth!!

Father your word is truth!!

Man lives by God's word!!

The word of God is life!!!

Those who believe in me do the works I do.!!

My people do God's word, His will!!!

My mission was to spread God's word, you do the same.
Kindness matters. It is one of the fruits of the Holy Spirit. You sound like an angry bird. There are foul birds nesting in the large tree in the book of Revelation. Christianity has grown into a HUGE TREE and there are many foul birds who nest in it's tree.

Well, one of my points or objectives was if you are a Christian ...
it takes a lot of faith to heal.

So, what to do?...ask God to give you such faith that if someone asks you to go
or please come to my mom's
who is dying of something, when MDs have said there is nothing they can do, and pray for
a healing (from God), so you have no hesitation.

You can ask yourself privately..."Yeah, I speak in tongues, I'm bap in the Holy Spirit...
yeah, why am I not healing (praying or asking for a healing for) those that want it ?
Why do I never rush to a friends to pray for them...aka, do a healing by His Grace and power that runs thru me?"

Only you can answer that to yourself by being still. I'm not calling you out here. It is for you.

Is it doubt, is it fear of failure, is it fear of being embarrassed 'if' the healing is not successful?
Do you have a belief that if you expect little you will not have disappointments.
Being shy (fearful) comes from the ego or the devil or the enemy or the evil one..
We were not born with a spirit of fear or confusion.

If we are to go boldly to God's throne...but on earth we never rushed
to pray for (on) someone...whassup?

I just threw those examples out...why do people not apply their faith to offer healings?

Increase your faith, people...figure out how, I say. Or be comfy in the love you feel for the
scriptures and God...give a little to charities, be kind to your neighbor...BUT, when your neighbor gets cancer...
Do nothing? Maybe recite some scripture to them?

No spirit?

Even though Jesus said God's word is spirit and life.

That quote only shows misunderstanding of scripture and the power of God.

If you want to heal someone give them the medicine of life and the word of the Lord. As Jesus said after he healed a man "go and sin no more so something worse won't come upon you."

Praying is not speaking the word of man but the word of God.

God hears the son. The truth. If you want God to hear you it is as Jesus said; "Father I know that you hear me, I know that you always hear me. "

The son is the truth. God hears the truth, His word. Failure to use God's word for and to your neighbor amounts to abuse.

What you were given as a gift give as a gift.

If only you knew God's gift and the joy of the spirit you would walk in the light of the Lord,render true judgement, and show kindness and compassion for others.

"Your light must shine before men so they will see your good works and glorify your heavenly Father. "

Have you never come a crross a preacher who booms out scripture from the pulpit to no effect, but someone can preach using the same scriptures and there is effect?. Why do you think that is?. You have to be in spirit that which you convey to others, or you might as well remain quiet.

Yes. I do not like loud, screaming preachers. They are doing it to try to intimidate a captive audience. A man filled with the spirit has no need to scream at others. An angry sounding preacher, people should never listen to nor trust.

I know what you mean but those kind use words of there own or words they think are scripture but aren't.

I realize there are some I will not reach like yourself but there are many who read and do not get involved.

I do as Jesus instructed me.

The fruit will come sooner or later.

A good tree cannot bear bad fruit just like a bad tree cannot bear good fruit.

Only god is good.

Give to god what is god's.
