Regarding your website, especially your article, really upset me. You are no greater than I. I am not greater than you. We are both servants who should be humbled by the grace of God not acting like the mighty priests who exalt themselves in the Old Testament. You should be offering a forgiving hand to sinners instead of just throwing Scripture at them. That doesn't fix anything. Yes, we can read the Scripture, but now what? The website is so judgemental, and it honestly bothers me you think you are better than the rest of us. Scripture can be interpreted in many different ways, that's why there are so many different types of Christianity, I don't appreciate your interpretations being presented as if they were the Holy Word of God. I honestly thought your interpretations were completely off base. No one can judge me, or anyone but God. That's a basic concept of Christianity, learn it.
Losing my faith and extremely attracted to atheism.
"Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment" (John 7:24).
"Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables" (II Timothy 4:2-4).
"Speak these things, exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no one despise you" (Titus 2:15).
"If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen" (I Peter 4:11).
"And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts; knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit" (II Peter 1:19-21).
Since when does hearing God's Word drive a person to atheism, unless, of course, the person has no interest in obeying God? "So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God" (Romans 10:17). If sinners are to be rescued, it must start with God's teachings.
So spiteful and angry. You aren't necessarily bringing people to Christ, you're pulling them away. How can you teach and bring people to the Savior when you scare them away?
A classic example of a person who accuses others of what she herself does. So why do you judge others who disagree with you when you say it is against what you believe?
"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek" (Romans 1:16).
"For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God" (I Corinthians 1:18).
""Is not My word like a fire?" says the LORD, "and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?"" (Jeremiah 23:29).
"For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled" (II Corinthians 10:4-6).
"For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart" (Hebrews 4:12).
The thought that one can win the battle against sin without the spiritual weapon that God gave is humorous and sad that you actually believe it.
I believe you've proved my point abundantly.
