Blogs are full of: Backbiting, name calling, condemnation and accusations. How does this compare to Isaiah 1:18, "Come now, and let us reason together," Philippians 2:3, "Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves." Can we do better?

Peter, We do not have to ask what one believes, when their words that they post already reveal what they believe. Jesus did not say the way of Moses and my way are equal, nor did he say that I will accept your way as equal to mine. What Jesus says is, "I am THE Way, not a way, I am THE Truth, not a truth, and I am THE Life, not a life: no human comes to The Father, except by me."
---Eloy on 11/17/11


markv, your heart is manifested to not be regenerated, but rather is still separated from my God. You cannot oppose holy Christians and also say that you are walking with Christ, for your antiChristian and antiChrist fruits betray you that you are still not a member of the body of Christ. We Christians know full well whom is and whom is not a part of our family. The day that you can say from your heart unto a saint, "Blessed is he whom comes in the name of the Lord", is the day that reveals your righteous position with God.
---Eloy on 11/17/11


Eloy, my heart is fine. Here is why, I still love you. No matter what you say. And let me say you compromise the word of God a lot so I answer you a lot. If I didn't care to correct you, even though you tell me to get saved, that would mean I didn't love you, and would want you to go to hell, but I don't. I correct you with the hope that you will see the Truth, that is, if God reveals it to you, and it will set you free from the doctrines you have wrong, and you will find the correct way, by seeing your contradictions and correcting them.
---Mark_V. on 11/17/11


Eloy: 'peter, there is ONLY ONE RIGHT BELIEF'

I cannot argue about that!!!

My concern is that we (you, I and others) may claim 'MY belief is the ONLY RIGHT ONE' without the proper justification of why WE, of ALL THE BELIEVERS on this site, must be the ones with the ONLY RIGHT BELIEF

At least let us ASK to be SURE WHAT THE OTHER PERSON REALLY BELIEVES before we just reject a belief.

---Peter on 11/17/11


markv, again, as I have corrected you many times, I have no care about your false statements: for out of your heart your mouth speaks. Get saved, then you will have true statements, and then afterward I will have care about your true statements.
---Eloy on 11/17/11




Eloy, you compromise the Truth all the time. Here is why, you told Peter,
" "Choose this day whom you will serve, Christ or sin: careful, for each has eternal ramifications, one eternal consequences and one eternal rewards"
You told everyone you were born again before this new rebirth you had at the hospital. You were born again, yet you said you rejected Christ. So if you are right with your answer, that means you had chosen wrong and your decision condemned you, your lost forever if we believe what you say, you said it had Eternal consequence. Just like when you said, you are sinless and all born again people are sinless, yet you sinned when you were born again the first time. You have no sound foundation.
---Mark_V. on 11/17/11


//We do indeed argue too much
---Peter on 11/16/11 //

Peter:
Regrettably, you are correct. We should each present our reasoning from the Bible only as to why we believe what we believe. Differences of opinion will always occur, since no two people always agree on everything, but opinions are just that - opinions.

I must say that you are probably the most respectful of us all. Blessed are the peacemakers .....
---jerry6593 on 11/17/11


peter, there is ONLY ONE RIGHT BELIEF, and all else is proven falsehood and rightly condemned as such, NO COMPROMISE. If you want to compromise then you likewise belong to the lot of falsehood, and not to the lot of Christ which is proven to be the one right and narrow way. "Choose this day whom you will serve, Christ or sin: careful, for each has eternal ramifications, one eternal consequences and one eternal rewards.

READ WHAT THIS POST IS ABOUT

MarkV: "many different believes."

A different belief should first be checked, as I sometimes see that people argue even both views are acceptable, just the two people are too 'demanding' in a desire that the other person believe the same as they, even on minor issues

We do indeed argue too much
---Peter on 11/16/11


I hope and pray that through our good examples on how we live our life,people can be drawn to Jesus.
I am sure there are many non Christians out there who see Christians in a fish bowl.so let us follow what Ephesians 5:15 "Be very careful, then, how you live--not as unwise but as wise."
We need not to win an argument for the sake of winning.We need to respect each other's opinion,perspectives and beliefs.
We need to ponder on this "What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don't they come from your desires that battle within you?-James 4:1
---mj on 11/16/11




markv, I have no care about your false beliefs. Get saved, then you can have true beliefs.
---Eloy on 11/16/11


Eloy, I believe you are wrong only because many who are not saved, answer more kindly than many who are called Christians. Unbelievers have no doctrinal issues. They just don't believe in God. Christians have a lot of doctrinal issues and they defend their denominations and not the Word of God. Many even claim the Bible is not all Truth. It would be great if everyone respected everyone. But just not possible here when you have people from all over the world with many different believes.
---Mark_V. on 11/16/11


The nature of sinners is to be evil towards Christians, and the only way that they can do better is to repent through praying to Jesus to become a real born-again Christian, so that Christ can then remove their sin nature and inpart to them his good nature, otherwise they will continue to behave in unrighteousness, unrighteousness towards God and towards others.
---Eloy on 11/15/11


Revering God makes me afraid to be a false witness for him and bare false witness of Him-check and balance is vital. ...
I believe God wants us to know Him and not be afraid to ask Him about-Him.

Praise God for repentance unto remission.
---char on 10/28/11

You would be right. Asking,seeking,verifying by him is the key.

The wisest post and personal philosophy guiding, I've seen since visiting CN.

Reverence of GOD's word should make us all fear misuse of and always have the witnesses/mulitiple to show our stand thereby. Check, balance with scripture. Scripture rebuking or sustaining. Not one but two or all pertaining.

Linda, I will close with my last reply to you. People have to have the knowledge of the Son of God, Eph. 4: 13. God gives the new believer a heart to perceive, and Romans 12:2 tells us, by the renewing of the mind" that is as far as I will go.
---Bob on 12/19/10


Bob, I was answering to you in those last posts, not Francis. In my original post, I mentioned no name at all. I still stand by my original thought. Knowledge does not save nor guarantee your salvation. The gospel heard is believed and received. Confession of Him as Lord comes from believing in your heart He rose from the dead. It was not knowledge of the gospel but believing the gospel. I know people who know the gospel in their heads but do not believe it in their hearts. They can tell you Jesus died and rose again but never confess Him as Lord. That is what I am talking about, Bob. It is not about being right in the doctrine like so many desire. It is about the relationship with God through Christ revealed by the gospel.
---Linda on 12/18/10

Linda I read everyone responses and they were all good ones. No one said anything wrong for you to quote what you did. francis is right and so are all the others who answered. you disagree with everyone by your quote. and told francis if the shoe fits, when his answer was right. you just wanted to start an argument for no good reason whatsoever. The sword is two edged, and it does effect those who teach other things, that's why they get angry.
---Bob on 12/18/10


Bob, either you aren't reading what I wrote or not understanding what I wrote or why I wrote it. There are two types of knowledge. I already told you I knew and believed Jesus died and rose again. I believed in my heart and confessed with my mouth. The knowledge didn't save me. Jesus did. No more need to attempt to clarify it as it seems you are looking for contention. I will leave you to go find it somewhere else.
---Linda on 12/17/10


Linda, you are going around in circles. In order to be saved you have to have faith in the gospel. That faith and your understanding of the gospel comes to your brain from the Word. It is knowledge of the Truth. You have to have it. Do you get it?
---Bob on 12/17/10


Bob,
Nope.

I said that the knowledge itself is not the guarantee of one's salvation. The Holy Spirit is. The true knowledge OF God comes through intimacy with God through Christ.
---Linda on 12/16/10

Bob, I should have mentioned also that the Truth is not some head knowledge. The Truth is Christ. Besides, I never said I could teach anything heretical and not be accountable. Neither can anyone else.

I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Jesus said that, Bob.
---Linda on 12/16/10


Linda, are you saying that you can be teaching all kinds of heretical views if you want, and you are not responsible because you have a relationship with Christ? So truth does not matter?
---Bob on 12/16/10


Biblical knowledge is "intimacy". No intimacy apart from Christ and His work. I don't have a relationship with rules or head knowledge. I have a relationship with the Man the knowledge is about. It is one thing to know about Him (head knowledge). Quite another to know Him (intimacy). Knowledge puffs up but charity edifies. You can tell the difference.

//When I was born again, I didn't have all the right knowledge. All I knew was that Jesus died and rose again. Was I less saved then? My mind may not have been renewed at that time, but the simplicity that is in Christ was greater than the knowledge I have now.//

For the first few centuries, Christians knew they had a relation with Christ, but they didn't have the right dogmas. For hundreds of years the deity of Christ was still debated.

Francis, Jesus was talking about the Pharisees when He made the statement about the blind leading the blind. They had all that knowledge of good and evil if that tells you anything. As for me, I once was blind, but now I see.
---Linda on 12/16/10


Francis, did I mention your name? But since you answered, the shoe musta fit. When I was born again, I didn't have all the right knowledge. All I knew was that Jesus died and rose again. Was I less saved then? My mind may not have been renewed at that time, but the simplicity that is in Christ was greater than the knowledge I have now. Relationship surpasses rules and regulations. No intimacy required in law. If we could not be deceived through knowledge away from the simplicity that is in Christ, there would not have been a warning. I am reminded of a people who knew all the Scriptures and the Law from their youth, zealous for the Law....and looked God in the face and didn't know Him. They were called Pharisees.

These type scriptures were writeen for our benefit but some of these people on this site are Christians in name...only.Barely read their bibles and certainly are not teachable. You know them by the fruit they bear also. Being a christian is about esteeming others above ourself and doing everything in love. When we have to correct someone or disagree with someone, we should always do it gently and humbly(in love).Sometimes we need to just be quiet. Silence is golden.We do not have to answer every question and try to show people how much we know. Prayer is very powerful. Instead of sparring back and forth, let's try praying for the bloggers who are new born babies and are growing in the Word of God.

These days seems everyone wants to be the teacher. I think that's what it boils down to. It's hard not to want to especially when you get so much good knowledge when you study God's word. A script that has stuck with me is Jer.31:34 "No longer will a man teach his neighbor, or a man his brother, saying, 'Know the LORD,' because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest," declares the LORD. I'm learning to hold my tongue and not air my opinions for this specific reason. If can't honor someone else above me then I'd rather not say anything. Sometimes the knowledge He gives me is only suppose to be between He and I. I'm learning to value that. Words are too valuable to waste on what doesn't do anyone a bit of good.

While the passage given in Phil. 2:3 is very important so was the verses before those, which state,
"And not in any way terrified by your adversaries, which is to them a proof of perdition, but to you of salvation and that from God. For to you it has been granted on behalf of Christ, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake"
Christian is correct with his answer. The word of God is the the two-edged sword, and when the true gospel is preached a spiritual war begins.

I don't think it is necessary.
My opinion-
True wisdom comes from God.
Not of ourselves.
The very nature of God defines truth and expose' the tactics of the enemy.
Pride is the enemies nature-our flesh is what he will use to perform it.

If it is Gods' wisdom you carry-use that wisdom-be careful with that pearl and be patience with others-by that same Spirit He will give others.
Yes we get irritated and angry but trusting God will have His Way-stand firm-let Him move.
Discern the spirit behind it-without judging only In-Christ is that possible.

Learn from Paul. In Galations 1:

10 "For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ."

11 "But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man."

The Word of God is a "double-edged sword". Believe it or not, when the True Gospel is preached, a spiritual war is in action between good and evil. "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." Ephesians 6:12

And this is happening here in ChristiaNet daily.
---christan on 12/8/10


I believe name-calling is an admission the writer lacks solid argument so resorts to rudeness.

However for a Christian truth is vital. We must follow Jesus' example and speak clearly and directly, not rudely against error. But perceived rudeness varies from culture to culture. Some peoples commonly speak plainly and directly while others use euphemisms and avoid the truth in case it offends. Some would say this evasiveness is more offensive than the plain truth.

Maybe we need to take this into account.

KarenD, I could not agree more with you. You are so right. I really enjoy answers from many here. I have learned a lot from so many. Everyone has different area's they are strong in, and weak on. Not everyone is on the same level. The very first thing we should all agree in, is that the Word of God is the only real Truth. Anything we say should be in agreement with the Word of God. But even that people do not agree. They believe people out there have all the Truth. And that Scripture is not good enough. If we cannot agree in the Bible, how can anyone agree on anything else?

Bruce56565...The problem is that when you disagree with some people, they are offended no matter how you phrase your answer.

---KarenD on 12/4/10


Bruce, we can do much better. I am getting better at it. Lets reason together you and I. The passages you gave were speaking to brothers in Christ, and genuine believers in Isa. What we have here is many that reject the Word of God. We also have Mormons, Jehovah witnesses, SDA's, Catholics, Eastern orthodox people, also Arminian's and Calvinist and reformers, all speaking with an agenda. Not to find the Truth but to defend what they were taught at their congregations. And when truth is given, many attacks are made. No Scripture many times only opinions.

I'd like to say that this blog question describes most churches. I'd add things like:

Gossip, Politics, Favoritism, Idolatry, Pride, etc.

I find it just unbelievable that many folks, even Priests, Pastors, Deacons, Elders, Teachers, etc. DO NOT recognize the importance of "apologizing when they are wrong". Many people have left churches because they were "hurt" by these Church leaders.

The same happens on these blogs. Our Moderators are great, but I think that we should be more aware of our short-comings and apologize when necessary. Unfortunately, our society discourages doing that.

If I've hurt anyone's feelings, I apologize. Please forgive me. Thanks!

Those who think they need to be abrasive and rude to get their point across should take heed to the words of Jesus: Matt 10:16, "Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves."

Now we are adverse to "serpents" and "serpent" immediately brings to mind references to Satan. However, Jesus is not talking about Satan in this verse.

Think of the characteristics of a snake. No "in your face" attitude, makes its way around quietly and without drawing attention to itself.

Any blogger who has a good argument from scripture shouldn't need sarcasm or name calling to make their point.

No disrespect to catholics on this blog. I can only speak for myself after reading a comment from a catholic. My response: no church is perfect, is a correct statement. But catholicism is not just a church. It is a religion unto itself. It answers to the pope. And Mary is the bride. Which is so wrong. The bible does not offer salvation through the pope. Salvation must come through Jesus Christ. Only. The pope is the god of the catholic church. Any way you cut that, it comes out all wrong. The doctrines,teachings, sacraments. everything is man-made and very different from what the bible commands us to do. You never hear a catholic speak of salvation. Only religion. Big difference from Christianity.

We also have a choice to ignore and not associate with certain things. We do have choices in life. We can not make others do as we want them to do.But we can change ourselves. Mess is everywhere. But some things that are taken as negative can be a positive, if turned around and seen for what it is. Just make sure we as christians are doing what we should. Discard the rest.

Isaiah 118, indicates, to put away evil and do good will only come about when Jesus saves them. Alright, Philippians 2:3...Self glorification. Thank You Jesus...Well, here is a couple that I found: "Then hear in heaven. JUDGE THE MAN. Punish the guilty person for what he has done. And declare that the innocent person is not guilty". Hallelujah. [1 Kings 8:32]..."When he is judged, let him be found guilty. Let even his prayers show that he is guilty"...[Psa. 109:7]. You all have a great evening. Even the wicked, God can use you, for His glory. Hallelujah+

Catherine,
In the context of this blog, what is it that God won't let you do?

There are always some that want to prove themselves "right" because of some bitterness they harbor from of the past. They sometimes even try to get other bloggers to be "on their side" thiking that adds power to their position.

When they can't succeed in changing a person's doctrinal beliefs, they resort to demeaning remarks and name-calling.

Any of you that notice this behavior, please use it as an example of what Christians are NOT to be... and don't be drawn into such discussions.

I don't think so. God won't let me. What you gonna do? Oh, Jesus lovees everybody. You are not so bad. No, God loves you anyways. Well, what do you want me to do, LIE? You are disturbing my peace....I cannot lie, without Jesus, to HELL YOU GO....Ha, Ha, Ha.

Here we have people of many cultures and backgrounds. Some saved for years, some babes in Christ.

You cannot "hear" the tone with which something is said as when speaking face to face (a critical part of conversation.)

"Speak the truth in love" is all too often "Speak the truth no matter how it comes out because these poor souls don't see it my way"

I humbly remind you that it's "Speak the truth in love."

You may speak the truth and not be heard because of the lack of love and forbearance.

Re-read Philippians 2:3 and really let it sink in especially the part that says "but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves."

Yes, we definitely could do better. On blogs, in church, and when reaching out to other people.

I attend a Catholic church and get the exact sort of "salty talk" you describe. Especially, from folks that attend: Baptist, Assembly of God, and Fundamentalist churches.

I agree that the Catholic church is NOT perfect. Yet, NO other church is either folks! The Bible says that NO person is perfect. Likewise, NO church is perfect either.

I find it very funny that Adults -- who claim to personally know Jesus Christ -- often Talk, and Behave, WORSE than little Children.

I've learned to just "live with it".

Bruce, I am sure we can. We have the ability. We just choose not to, I suppose.
