You are speaking for others again. As long as you dismiss what God wants from you, God will ignore you.


You need to work on that.

Weird how you tell me I'm speaking for others, but you think nothing of speaking for God, while ignoring what he's actually said. That's irony.

You see that a man is justified by works and not by faith alone (James 2.24).
I also believe faith is pretty useless if you don't "step up" and apply it....I could ask every Christian here:
Do you step up and do any "faith healing"?

If asked to go to the ICU and pray for someone dying in a coma on life support...would you drop everything, put your own reputation on the line and go over....
applying your faith?
Again, that's when the rubber hits the pavement.
Until a person takes some steps outside there comfort zone, filled with trepidations...it's all talk to me!
I can only imagine how God would veiw it...with parental kindness, I'm sure..impatience that there is more work to be
done on the peson's heart? Maybe.
I know Jesus got pretty impatient...esp after seeing Moses and Elijah ! Now that was some day!

We will ignore you. You said that. You do not speak for jimmie, or Choir, or Finn. Who is this we?


I do not speak for God. I do not use the we in speaking for God. I simply tell you what God expects of you.

You have a relationship with a book. Not the same as having a relationship with God.

Yes, I do, but apparently YOU don't because you appear to equate them in your prior post
