Arrogance and Pride

While surfing through blogs, I came across a the site of a Christian preacher. The site was nice, full of compassion and love as well as questioning and conversation.

However, one entry made me pause. The guy was talking about how he brings people to Christ and then they leave and it makes him feel like these people will burn in Hell now because he didn't keep them around.

First of all, he didn't bring anyone to Jesus. Jesus does that all on his own. This guy may have been used by God to plant a seed, but he is not God and he has nothing, absolutely nothing to do with anyone else's relationship with God.

I wondered about the opposite, if someone stays at his Church and never leaves......are they staying because of him? Because of his power and majesty????? NO NO ten thousand times NO! They are there because of THEIR PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP with CHRIST.

Period. If they leave, who the fuck is this guy to say they have left Jesus? Huh? Maybe they just didn't like HIM! Maybe he is a shitty preacher. Maybe he's arrogant and assuming. Maybe he tries to get inside their personal relationship with God and make himself a third party.

I dunno, but I am praying for this man to lose his pride. I hope you all will pray with me.

Also please pray that he finds a wonderful job that is fulfilling without taking too much of his time.

Thanks.

I'm confused. Very confused. You say you love Jesus and you talk about becoming clean through Jesus and yet your language is filthy. So, could you write a piece on how you reconcile these things and also describe the purpose of the naked sexy-leg signature photo you use? I'm sure you must know the scriptures about obscene speech and modesty. How does all this tie in with Jesus? I'm very curious. Thanks!

What's wrong with a picture of my legs? Nothing. If you have a problem with sexy legs, it's your problem, don't project!

I do not curse God or piss on the name of Christ. If you have a problem with my use of language, if you are an elitist who thinks you can tell me how I should speak, again, it's your problem. I'm for free speech.

My soul is clean through Jesus. He lives in my heart. I have a mansion in the sky, my name is written in the book of life, when I fear or am sad or lonely, Jesus comforts me and gives me peace. I have a personal relationship with God, isn't that great? You can have one too you know. Just call out for Jesus, He'll come.

Hope that helps! Thanks for posting.

Did it help? Responding is cool, but since you asked the questions I'd like to know if I answered them satisfactorily, in case they come up again.

May I ask some question? Do you believe the Bible is God's word to us? Do you believe a person can have a personal relationship with God minus his revelation of himself to us through his word? I have been unable to tell if you are just a parody or if you are for real. But you have made me think about what it means to be a Christian:

Here are some scriptures that seem significant to this situation. Of course, if you don't value scripture, then a discussion is impossible.

Regarding a relationship with God:

We know that we have come to know him if we obey his commands. The man who says, "I know him," but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But if anyone obeys his word, God's love is truly made complete in him. This is how we know we are in him: Whoever claims to live in him must walk as Jesus did. (1 John 2: 3-6)

Regarding our speech and purity:

But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God's holy people. Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which is out of place, but rather thanksgiving. (Ephesians 5: 3-4)

If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. 1 Peter 4: 11

Regarding the beauty of Christian women:

Your beauty should ... be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight. 1 Peter 3: 3-4

Oh fuck YOU!!!

Who the Hell do you think you are? Paul?? Are you emulating Paul or JESUS with this type of sexist drivel???

You have some nerve! First you ask if I believe if someone can have a personal relationship with God minus Scripture. Then without waiting for a response, you go on to tell me if I disregard Scripture discussion is impossible!

Do you see what you have done here?

Take your sexist crap back to the days AFTER the martyrs both male and FEMALE and into the darkness of Papistry and leave it there.

Why are you being anonymous, it's obvious you're the Pastor from the blog I mentioned in this post.

Are you hiding your light under a basket???

This could be a time of reckoning for your soul, use it well.

No, no! I am a female. I'm being anonymous because I'm not sure who you are. But do not blame this on anyone but me. I am not who you have accused me of being. I LOVE God's word because that is how I know who he is. Scripture doesn't make me mad, it gives me hope.

Well if you only know God through the Bible, you don't know God.

Let Jesus in your heart.

No Jesus, no God. Know Jesus, know God.

And enough with the sexist shit, Jesus was NOT sexist. If you are following anyone other than Jesus, you will get lost.

OK. So I see now that this whole thing is a parody. Sort of like this: http://www.landoverbaptist.org/

Do you work for them? ;-)

None of the Scripture you quote is the Gospel.

None of the Scripture you quote was spoken by Jesus.

If you want to follow Man, go ahead. If you want to piss on Christ and make up things to keep women down, enjoy.

I don't equate my religion with politics. The Founding Fathers understood that mixing the two are dangerous as relationships with God are PERSONAL.

You want to live in a theocracy, go to Saudi. This world belongs to Satan, all governments no matter if they claim to rule by God, rule by Satan.

Keep your "advice" on how a woman should act. Shove it actually.

Jesus never once made me second class, or told me to shut up or sit in quiet beauty and be a good girl.

Shame on you! Jesus was anti-politics! He would tell me to shout from the rooftops!! Not to hide my beauty under a basket!

If you enjoy mocking Christians like your friends at Landover, or Jesus General....again that's your problem.

Find Jesus. The Bible is empty without Him in your heart.

And another thing, you say in your first post that my legs are sexy...are you a lesbian? You're coming on here and judging if I'm a Christian in the guise of holier than thou Christianity and yet you think my legs are sexy.....

Interesting. Bad trolling.
