Religious Self RighteousnessPosted: October 21, 2014
“Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfil them. Mat 5:17
Never Mind … Jesus came to fulfil all those laws not abolish them – yet he came all the same – to lay his life down – that we might have life in God. Believe in Jesus and look up to Jesus and all your weaknesses will be made strong ..’
All this stuff – externally or adjacent is pure religion. Jesus was never a religious man but a righteous and loving man. A precedent for christians/humanity. Not man made politically motivated religion. Don’t get me started.
So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets. :: Mathews 7:12
I always say this to myself, before religious people, I don’t need you to tell me how to live my life. For when I look at you – I see flaws. Maybe, you need to look in the mirror; to see what I see. Mercy Mercy!
As God is love, so is Jesus and so is the HOLY SPIRIT. They work hand in hand. To uphold and reproach. Dont forget I speak for and against. I am by no way perfect, nor making excuses for my imperfections, or perfections for that matter. But, I stand on the word of God. That says –
For God So Loved the World
16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. :: John 3:16 ::
And the bible makes it quite clear to me that –
36 “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” 37 And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the great and first commandment. 39 And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. 40 On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.” ::
Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. :: 1 John 4:8 :: :: Amen :: the scripture below In fact – Read the whole of ::
1 John 4:7-21 :: God Is Love ::
7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. 8 Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. 9 In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. 10 In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. 12 No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us.
13 By this we know that we abide in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit. 14 And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. 15 Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. 16 So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.
17 By this is love perfected with us, so that we may have confidence for the day of judgment, because as he is so also are we in this world. 18 There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.
19 We love because he first loved us. 20 If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot[a] love God whom he has not seen. 21 And this commandment we have from him: whoever loves God must also love his brother.
