John the Baptist ate locusts and honey...some may say he was rigid and overbearing, (I'm sure Herod thought so). That he was too hard on people but he was doing the will of God.
Jesus on the other hand, ate and drank, meek and mild. (And yes, at times he was rather pointed in what he said as well, but still He seemed a little more laid back than John)...Both were doing the will of God, right? I suppose they were doing it in a little different way, but still, both were doing what they should be doing yet in very different ways.
Do you think that is the way it is for us? I mean, God made each of us different with our own spiritual gifts, so we can do things our way (as long as what we do is in line with scripture). Take for example, Thanksgiving. Some may spend the day fasting and in somber prayer while others feasts and sing praises to God. Neither is wrong, but yet, they are very different...
If one says to the other, "you are doing that wrong!", aren't they guilty of the sins in Galatians 5:19-21? That would be a prime example of a heresy, wouldn't it?
Wow, I think I need to be careful not to push my opinions on other people...I need to tell people of scripture, but when it comes to what I "think" something means, I need to be careful that I am not putting words in God's mouth. I need to remember that if we are willing to be used by God, He will use us in whatever way He chooses. The "mold" for a Christian is pretty simple. Love Christ with all you heart, mind and soul.
I have no idea where my mind is going with this post...I am frustrated by people foisting their opinions of how I am to worship and love my King...It's one thing if there is scripture to back up their opinions, but it is a whole different thing if there isn't or if they take things out of context to fit their mold...make sense??
The Maker of all human beings is recalling all units manufactured, regardless of make or year, due to a serious defect in the primary and central component of the heart. This is due to a malfunction in the original prototype units code named Adam and Eve, resulting in the reproduction of the same defect in all subsequent units. This defect has been technically termed "Subsequential Internal Non-Morality," or more commonly known as S.I.N., as it is primarily expressed.
Some other symptoms include:
1. Loss of direction
2. Foul vocal emissions
3. Amnesia of origin
4. Lack of peace and joy
5. Selfish or violent behavior
6. Depression or confusion in the mental Component
The Manufacturer, who is neither liable nor at fault for this defect, is providing factory-authorized repair and service free of charge to correct this SIN defect. The Repair Technician, Jesus, has most generously offered to bear the entire burden of the staggering cost of these repairs. There is no additional fee required.
The number to call for repair in all areas is:
Once connected, please upload your burden of SIN through the REPENTANCE procedure. Next, download ATONEMENT from the Repair Technician, Jesus, into the heart component.
No matter how big or small the SIN defect is, Jesus will replace it with:
9. Self control
Please see the operating manual, the B.I.B.L.E. (Believers' Instructions Before Leaving Earth) for further details on the use of these fixes.
WARNING: Continuing to operate the human being unit without correction voids any manufacturer warranties, exposing the unit to dangers and problems too numerous to list and will result in the human unit being permanently impounded.
DANGER: The human being units not responding to this recall action will have to be scrapped in the furnace. The SIN defect will not be permitted to enter Heaven so as to prevent contamination of that facility.
Thank you for your attention!
Please assist where possible by notifying others of this important recall notice, and you may contact the Father any time by "kneemail".
