May God give you peace,
Ask for the greatest and it will be given to you.
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” Mt 7:7
The greatest commandment is to love God, but God is not an oppressor who exacts love without giving it.
We could never even hope to love, if it had not been given by God.
And it will be granted unsparingly to those who ask.
Ask the Father for love. There is no gift which He delights more in giving.
No one is denied, no one will be reproached, because to ask God for love is to give a gift to God. The Father does not refuse the love of his children, and it is love to ask for His love.
The Love of God is what all people seek, it is the desire of the human soul, as we are His children.
Ask and it will be given to you.
Eat, and be filled.
“whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” John 4:14
@backcase, You are respected as being HE’s resident expert on Christianity. You are a bit of an enigma but sublimely dedicated to posting relatively thoughtful posts.
I don’t always agree with you but nonetheless, I want to know a little about YOU. Your profile is mysteriously blank. Who are you backcase, where do you live, occupation etc. I want to know in the interests of good relations.
@jakehay, nice ok check mine out. ive got this shizz to a point where im completley dreaming. check out my run down . . .
mom and dad niether really cared but i got dope ass love from both. they both support but kept out of our hair.
4 brother, one full blood, one half, and two step… one step is BUD SMOKE thats his name. massive enabler to the weed scene.
evil brothers. w/ some love. i was middle of both sets. basically black sheep wild man. disconnected and not tied. open love means little to no contact but theres still love. divorved parents EViil evil stepmom as far as evil goes but now i completley love her lol maybe the most.
as soon as i caught on to the god thing i pushed the limits. i once went on a walk on foot. it snowed, i slept outside. walked for 3 days/nights lost 12 lbs in the snow. i have a permanent hip cartilage thing from it but it gave me confidence that i was protected and sturdy as F*!
im 21 have traveled from WA to mexico back to WA then to so cal rounded went the south to FL stayed for a bit then did the same thing to OK. living out of the car. have had and am comfortable with ghost experiences and hella synch miracles. awesomeness.
the disconnectedness with fam has allowed me to connect to the Holy Father most over every thing else
o ya friends were obviously out too. not the same enthusiasm caught the common “crazy” thing and whatever. im married. i had a companion thru my adventures and my love to death and after pup Torah… and Iris but she came later
I am a Cat so im kindof anti-social but i am a Lion so i give it all to my pack
@misswogfrog, I would say that the problem with your thread was that is was too short, and the subject was very vague. Everyone has an opinion of such things, and what you posted could make people post anything at all.
I was overwhelmed at such a thread, but since you were vague I took the opportunity to see your thoughts on that particular subject.
“I am a sinner. I am a bad representation”
Wow way to live a fucked up life man
Your whole paradigm on life is one giant fucking contradiction.
You are consistently explaining the love of god, the glory and light of god. The holiness of God. How great and loving it all truly is.
Yet you say something like this. How can the two possibly exist simultaneously? Not only would god need to work without logic, He would be doing so illogically. This is not only mysterious, it is hypocritical.
To give you the future of love and faith and beauty and warmth, but to condemn your very existence without the possibility of your own free-will giving you salvation in THIS reality.
This sounds absolutely ridiculous to me, and I can’t believe you write with any clarity, yet follow this type of cognitive dissonance.
No basis for discussion…
No questions, only a statement…
Not really about following our bliss…
This is a lame thread.
If people wanted to hear this they would go to church, not visit a forum about higher ways of existence.
Everything in its right place…
@ijesuschrist, God has infinite mercy on His finite creatures. It is humility to recognize ourselves as such. I do not condemn myself, I know myself, and I know that I am not wothy of the great glory of God.
Many people cannot understand things like faith, or virtue, or even being human for that matter.
“You are consistently explaining the love of god, the glory and light of god. The holiness of God. How great and loving it all truly is.”
and I, being not worthy of such, accept God’s infinite mercy. Glory and thanks be to God
