Is Bitterness Unheavenly

In trying to get as many people saved as possible, I have come up against 2 people with "roots of bitterness." They say they don't want prayer and aren't bitter, but you can hear the bitterness spewing out of them. Will their bitterness keep them out of heaven?

Their lack of knowing Jesus as their savior will keep them out of heaven.

Donna, don't use anyone else's name.
If your scared, it's because more high drama is needed to attract attention to yourself.
No one can reach through the net and pull your hair.

Donna you were DePuTy. I think you are Chipper now, and MARK at one time.

Moderator-please let this post. I know several people on ChristiaNet using different names have yelled at me, and said untruths about me. Can we please STOP accusing one another of such false accusations? I am not using anyone else's name except the ones this site gives. I have cancelled my profile and had to re-sign up and got a different name. So before you accuse me, please ask why. Someone on this board is angry with me and it's one of two people. You are scaring me so please give your real name. TY.

Just read some of the answers already here and you will see that bitterness is unheavenly, ungodly, and just down right mean. Jesus is the only way to get to heaven. Not accepting Him is the only way to stay out of heaven. People, can we just answer these questions and stop the fighting?

I find that type of prayer offensive.

Donna, I know you use other names to get your real thoughts across, because you have used my name before.
If you want to pray, you don't need to post that type of prayer about someone else. It's childish which is different that childlike.
I'm not an Orthodox or RCC, but I love all of them, including Jack. I think of Jack, often. But I pray good things for Jack, and nothing but good things.
---MARK on 4/27/07

Donna, regardless of what name you answer under, I can spot you a mile away.
Under the pseudo names, you really cut loose.

Next time you need to pray for/about someone, do it without sending it to us.

Jack, Pop me upside the head if you want to, I don't care. I care about you.
---MARK on 4/27/07

I want to express agreement with Donna's last post!
---Mima on 4/27/07

Jack, How is witnessing and telling people, You need to meet my friend Jesus, do you want to meet him" How is that convicting the world of sin?
Jack, I just realized something. You are a very hurting man. I realize you have alot of time on your hands, but you are hurting so deeply inside. Father, I pray for Jack. Lord, please release this man from his defensive behavior and always attacking other Christians, believing that only he has the truth. I pray in Jesus name.
---donna9759 on 4/27/07

Jack, as usual, you continue to attack people's answers and not answer the question.

By "trying to get as many people saved as possible" because "Christ is my life" as it says in Colossians.

If "Christ is YOUR life" then your light will shine 24/7. Right? So people ask me about my joy, I tell people, "you need to meet my friend Jesus, he's awesome."
HOW IS THAT PRIDEFUL JACK? Why is that prideful to NOT want people to go to hell?
---donna9759 on 4/27/07

Madison is correct, it is the lack of knowing Jesus as savior that keeps people out of heaven. Those that are saved can struggle with unforgiveness which leads to bitterness...Pray for these 2, God is able.
---christina on 4/27/07

Jesus said that the Holy Spirit would convict the world of sin, not Donna.

Your very opening, "In trying to get as many people saved as possible," betrays a prideful attitude.
---Jack on 4/27/07

God can take bitterness and turn it completely around. Look at the best example we have of this: the Apostle Paul. Acts 9:4&5, "Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?
5) And he said, Who art thou, Lord? I am Jesus, whom thou persecutest;..."

Prior to this Saul(Paul) was bitterly fighting against the followers of Christ.
---MARK on 4/27/07

Hebrews 12:15, says we fall short of the grace of God and also become defiled.And in
the Book of Acts 8:22-23, very clearly it tells us that bitterness is poisonous and it
has us bound in iniquity. The only remedy is
REPENTANCE. Brian. 6933
---BRIAN._STAFFORD on 4/27/07

You cannot receive salvation unless you are willing to repent. Forgiveness is something that is included in that. The Bible says that God will not forgive us if we don't forgive others.
---Susie on 4/26/07

Not only their bitterness but arragance as well. God is not looking for people that say they don't need prayer. Because if they reject prayer, their rejecting God. Just pray that God will soften their hearts.

Bitterness is a result of unforgiveness. Sure it could keep them from getting saved.
You do your best and let God do the rest. It is his will that all come to repentance.
---john on 4/26/07

You better believe it will. Bitterness is at the root of pride. And I do not need to tell you how God feels about pride.>>> I'll tell you anyhow. HE HATES IT. Listen, some people don't care if they go to hell.
