Are Christians Confused

If Jesus were on these blogs he would get royally flamed for telling the truth because he doesn't conform to your personal ideology. There are many interpretations of such topics as salvation, gospel, baptism, heaven, end time, etc.

Why are today's Christians confused about spiritual matters?

\\Shira has told more truth about you than error. That is a fact. Research your own activity.

Read your own hateful remarks back to yourself.\\

I've done nothing but quote shira's own words back to her.

Is this hateful?

If so, who is being hateful?

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 3/13/14


\\I had a disagreement with shira in the past to which she replied,
"maybe you need to sit down and re-group then come back and tell me what burr you have up yours"

You see? It's happened before. I'm not the only person to whom shira is nasty and hateful.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

(that's funny. My wife who I tell anyone is like a Proverbs 31 woman is quick witted like that too and I love that about her!)

Shira is feisty but she also has a noble heart which I have not failed to point out (Hindu Who Found Jesus).
Cluny also is feisty and in all the years I have been here I have also learned that he also has a noble heart.

I feel like Ive seen a mad man. that is exactly what I said. excuse me, I need to get back to kindergarten and you should also or you will miss something. I do love you cluny as a brother but I don't like the part Ive seen this week.
---shira4368 on 3/13/14


She claims she loves me, but now calls me a madman.
Is this love?"
Cluny

Cluny, what scripture or standard do you use that says Shira or anyone else cannot love a mad man?

An example of you is in your correcting others in spelling and use of English. Yet, you make the same type of mistakes and worse.

You never post that you lack intelligences, as you say others do, for your errors. Why?

Shira has told more truth about you than error. That is a fact. Research your own activity.

Read your own hateful remarks back to yourself. Examine yourself and be wise!!

Gosh, these blogs are beginning to sound like a very bad "B" rated soap opera, eh? I can't believe the bickering going on. You people are definately not making a good impression to the newly born christians who visit here.
---Steveng on 3/13/14


Cluny with respect,please take a hard look at yourself and take responsibility in what happens when you say harsh things to people. You can't be mean to people judging them without mercy and expect all sweetness and light from them toward you. It is so true we reap what we sow therefore since God holds us all accountable we should also take charge of ourselves and try to make our replies civil at least and kind at best. There is a way to speak to people that is not offensive. You are a smart man and have much to offer others in information from all your studies therefore I ask you please don't waste your knowledge and talent in snide,hurtful remarks. Build up others don't tear them down. In doing so you build up yourself spiritually. God Bless
---Darlene_1 on 3/13/14


Bro. Elder, thank you brother. Cluny was enjoying all this. He thinks he has the bull by the horns but the bull already has turned the other way. I got In The flesh and defended myself. I will defend myself again if need be, but I would do it a different way.
---shira4368 on 3/13/14


\\Not because someone tells the truth about you!\\

The fact remains she has not told the truth about me.

She claims she loves me, but now calls me a madman.

Is this love?

What does she say to people she dislikes?

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 3/13/14


Darlene, thank you sweet friend. of course what you say is truth. I appreciate rita's and your advise. I will honor your advice. love you sis.
---shira4368 on 3/12/14




"While shira has tried to defend and whitewash what she said, she has yet to say, "I am sorry I wrote that," or something similar. THIS would be an apology."

Yea, Cluny I and others would like to see you do this also.
Being right in your own eyes is not all there is to it.

You insult an aged lady servant of the Lord and think it is righteous. But, she is not the only one.

Remember, it is by YOUR works that you receive rewards. Not because someone tells the truth about you!
---Elder on 3/12/14


Shira I know you have been insulted on here but Dear Sister please remember this,when they act ugly to you its all on them but if you respond the same way then it is also on you. Just a suggestion,answer them but don't stoop to their level. State how they affected you and find the Bible verse to show them its wrong then you are without fault in anyones eyes. The most effective way to show your displeasure and anger is by being completely in control and keeping yourself calm,using words no one can find fault with. I know this works I have done it person to person,face to face,I got my point across without anger or letting them know how upset I was. That gave me the upper hand. Loveya Darlene

\\You have called me ugly names and you have never acknowledged you even said what you did. You are a bitter person and I feel sorry for you. Oh all CN. Bloggers cluny called me unlearned and can't read. \\

There you go slandering me again.

You call me bitter. I'm not.

You call me hateful. I'm not.

I've never said you could not read. I will admit I have asked you if you really understood what you read from my posts or elsewhere.

But maybe you can't tell the difference.

But keep on blessing me, shira, and increasing my heavenly treasure.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 3/12/14


Lidia, I agree with you. A lot is lost 'in translation' here, from the intention of the words typed by the sender to the mind of the reader. The tone of voice makes a difference also and we don't have that here.

I think that we should all read everything, to which we intend to respond, at least 3 times and then think about it to ensure that we have understood the intentions or thoughts of the other person.

Sometimes I also think we should hit 'delete' instead of 'send'.

Just as it used to be when people wrote letters - once it's said it cannot be unsaid and we cannot deny saying it - so here we cannot undo what we post.

I sometimes wonder what non-Christians who have 'wandered' here think of some of the postings.

We all sin, but a follower of Christ always ask for forgiveness. Not for the purpose of receiving forgiveness ourselves from others, but for the purpose of being right with God. The other person has to do the same. But that is not up to us but up to them. We only control what we do and our standing with God. If Jesus is your Lord, then we should follow Jesus and do what He wants us to do. First, ask God for forgiveness, then ask the person for forgiveness, no matter how he/she answers.
---Luke on 3/12/14


Shira, I've been upset by various people here in the past and, when that happens, I take a week (sometimes more) off and just don't look at the website. It's the equivalent of going into another room to 'cool off'.

Try it and then, when you return, just don't respond at all to the person who causes you grief. There is no compulsion to respond to anything, whatever they might say aimed directly at you.

That works for me and I think that it would work for you.
---Rita_H on 3/12/14


Darlene I don't care who thinks I did anything. They need to get the boulder out of their own eyes. I retaliated because I was tired of the insults followed by "so called holy sayings". Cluny needs to wash his mouth out. He acts so innocent and he is NOT.
---shira4368 on 3/12/14


Hello, all. We are humans and God knows our hearts. We all get say things at times CAN BE taken wrong.

OurFather in heaven. Cluny told me, "cats can run wild" while they are not my cats.


Let Go and Let God..

Now " Thick skinned" ,I used to get hurt , then said " God bless you'!"

Later said she was " high" at the

it not same type in words online as in person.
I agree.

God sees our hearts and a person has to be able accept an apology as well, as forgive forget move on.

We are human not divine.

Love of Jesus!

\Luke, I have apologized to cluny \\

While shira has tried to defend and whitewash what she said, she has yet to say, "I am sorry I wrote that," or something similar. THIS would be an apology.

No, shira has not apologized. She merely wants credit for having done so.

Glory to jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 3/11/14


Luke, I have apologized to cluny but he hasn't apologized to me for the nasty things he said to me. I do love him as a brother but I don't like how he responds to people on CN. He is on his high horse.

Does anyone here watch the news?

There are frequent stories about children who receive nasty electronic messages (e-mails, texts, posting on social media) telling them that they are ugly, unloved, lonely, miserable and should end their misery by killing themselves.

Too often, the victims take this tragic ending.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 3/11/14


It is very bad for anyone calling themselves Christians to not be forgiving. When someone holds another person captive by accusing them over and over of something or another, it only shows the lack of real love of Christ. There is resentment against one person, so let it go. Forgive and ask God to forgive you. We should love each other. It should come natural, not by force.

Seems I started a war. I'm hibernating for a while. I'll just sit here in My little one red light town and watch the excitement. actually I was raised In a big city but it doesn't compare to the safety of a tiny town.
---shira4368 on 3/10/14


Shira: I suppose that one red light is to keep people from "jumping" to conclusions (crash endings, traffic terminations). Since Mr. C has the green light, why don't you just let him proceed on thru the intersection? Smile & wave "high neighbor" at him as he chugs merrily on his way.

You told me twice to jump off a bridge, and it would put an end to my misery.

That is NOT a figure of speech, shira.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 3/10/14


Leon thanks for that information. Some of my ancestors came from Hihari and I really don't know anything about the area. Sometimes I wonder what has happened with plain ole manners on this site and love one another has gotten lost somewhere too. Sad. I'm always glad to see you on here. God Bless
---Darlene_1 on 3/10/14


Leon what hahira has to do with anything is....it has to do with jumping off a mountain and I told cluny it was a figure of speech then I said if I have a bad day, I always say if stone mt was in hahira I would jump off. I was raised I. Atlanta and we use to walk up stone mt when there was no water at the top. They finally got water fountain on top so it was more fun to climb the mt. I remember when the sculpture was being carved out, a fellow fell off the mt and shortly after a child fell off also. After that, a fence was put in place. My mom remembered when a farmer traded the mt for some farmland. History does not show that but my mom remembered the event. Ray Stevens sang about hahira and the motorcycle that went in the motel pool.
---shira4368 on 3/10/14


Leon, cont.... I didn't know how hahira got its name but it has 1 red light. It use to be a tobacco town but the old tobacco warehouse was torn down last month and dollar General is building a store there. Ray Stevens was flying over this area and he ask the pilot where are we and the pilot said we are over hahira so Ray put it in his song. it was about the motorcycle that rode off the diving board into the pool at our local motel. We didn't have a motel at that time but now there is a cheap one at that exit.

\\So, the Christian thing is to kiss n makeup (drop the attitudes, change your moods) ~ forgive each other!!!\\

Oh, I've forgiven shira.

Since my life is hidden with Christ in God, her curse, telling me to kill myself so I'm no longer miserable, will just bounce off me.

But I've prayed that her curse will also be consigned to oblivion and not hurt her when it bounces off me.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 3/10/14


FYI Shira: Legend has it, the town of Hahira took its name from a local plantation named for the African village of Hairaairee. (Source: Wikipedia)

I've been to Stone Mountain, in Atlanta. My boys & I loved the laser light show.

Many years ago I was in the USAF, but was never stationed at Moody AFB. However, President G.W. Bush trained as a pilot there.

What does this have to do with anything?! Glad you asked! I thought you & Mr. Cluny needed a little diversion from your collision. So, the Christian thing is to kiss n makeup (drop the attitudes, change your moods) ~ forgive each other!!! Yeah, "lighten up"! Surely, Mr. C "Glory to Jesus Christ!" will agree. :)

One of the fruits of the spirit is "does not keep account of injury" (even perceived injury)
---1st_cliff on 3/9/14


cluny, lighten up. You take pleasure in your insults. It obvious too. It was a figure of speech. You just like to make a mountain out of a mole hill. I can see you really take things way to seriously. Do you ever smile? You have no sense of humor. Ok ok ok, I will leave you alone but I will always take up for my faith and for myself. You have said some cruel things to me, especially about my faith.
---Shira4368 on 3/9/14


God loved & yet loves us & has chosen to forgive us. So, shouldn't we, as believers in Jesus Christ, also be willing to love & forgive others? Isn't love of God & love of our neighbors a true measure of one's Christianity?

Confusion comes into the minds of people when they choose to listen to & follow the doctrines of devils instead of following the Good Shepperd.

\\But you know cluny, I still love you as a brother but my goal was to make you see how you come across to others here\\

And if you tell people you love to kill themselves, what do you say to people whom you merely dislike?

No, shira, nothing you said sounded like a figure of speech.

YOU are the one who keeps on saying I'm sad, lonely, and miserable. Now you said that killing myself would put an end to my misery. Why? Because I disagree with you? You don't know anything about me.

For all you know, someone in the depths of despair might read your "idle figure of speech" and act upon it himself or herself. And yes, his/her blood would be on your hands.

Repent.

"Why are today's Christians confused about spiritual matters?"

Are all who call or think themselves to be Christians Christian? Therein lies the problem. Many who claim to be Christians don't believe the Bible is true let alone obey it. So, are they really Christians?

Then there are professing non-Christians who suppose they can credibly speak on Christianity & Bible spirituality. Insane (not in their right minds, i.e., confused)!

It's not a matter of Christians, who clearly hear the Good Shepperd's voice then following & obeying Him, being confused. That's not the case at all. People who are "of the world" are confused, not Christians!
---Leon on 3/8/14


Cluny, you are right but you also have idle words. But you know cluny, I still love you as a brother but my goal was to make you see how you come across to others here. you have a hateful attitude toward bloggers on CN. I also know you are prolly lonely and alone all the time. That sort of thing makes one see things differently. I really didn't mean to actually tell you to jump off a bridge. It was a figure of speech and you know that as well as me. I'm really sorry I said that to you because I don't feel that way. I know you are a brother in Christ. Can we be friends?
---shira4368 on 3/8/14


Note, CN bloggers, that shira told me to kill myself.

Not only did she tell me that, but she glories in it.

But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.

---1st_cliff on 3/8/14


I believe the reason Christians become confused, is they stop seeking the Truth through the word of God, and settle for the word of truth through those people in which they have entrusted their salvation.

I have gotten many directions in my life from folks that never got me to the destination I wanted to Go, even though they were sure of their directions.
So there was no way I was going to rely on mans salvation directions, because I wouldn't know if they had given me the right direction, until the Lords return.

Cluny LOL you are so full of it. What you say is full of holes. We have minds that can sift out the good from the bad and with God's help the wrong from the right,we choose our path in life,therefore just because we believe in one thing and won't bad mouth another's denominational belief doesn't mean we have to believe in all things. What I won't do is be judge of other people and what they believe,I leave that to God who made them and only He has the right to judge. When people put more importance on the denomination than they do God and His Word they will follow the wrong path proclaiming all the time how Holy they are,and how right. God Bless

Lastly when we sit in heaven before JESUS he will teach us all we should then be in agreement.

There is one church of Christ, it is a spiritual church made up of all those who believe by faith in our Lord and Savior. They are not confused. All believers in Christ are spiritually baptized into One body in Christ.
These believers most likely belong to a visible church or congregation, which has many different names. These churches, denominations, all have different traditions they follow. Just because the denomination follow's certain traditions, it doesn't make the believers in Christ who attend, any less Christian. Or the unbelievers who attend Christian.
When the time comes the Angel will gather everyone of those who believe in our Savior from all corners of the world.

Because today Steveng, so called Christians follow movements, groups, ism's guru's, social topic issues, politics, politicians, fox, cnn, and not Christ. They ask wisdom from others and not God.

\\Cluny No I don't think my church is the only one\\

That's why I say only ONE of these antithetical ideas can be true.

If you consider these, you'll be able to come up with others.

Eph 5:17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord [is].---micha9344

What is the will of God?
John 6:40 this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and BELIEVES IN HIM may have everlasting life, and I will raise him up at the last day.

1Thess 4:3 this is the will of God, even your sanctification (which we have when we believe on Jesus, Heb 10:10) that ye should abstain from fornication (with Hagar, who is symbolic of righteousness by works of the law, Gal 4:24).

When we believe on Jesus then we're in the will of God and there's no confusion.

But anyone mixing grace with works is rejecting God's will. They are unwise/confused/lukewarm.

Cluny No I don't think my church is the only one and you don't have to have such a reason in picking a church. I believe the Word of God is the only thing completely right and if we are Spiritually awake to Gods power and the Holy Ghosts job of teaching us we are always studying and seeking God's truth. I would never judge another's church as wrong just because they don't believe like my church. I love God's Word in any setting as long as it is God's Word.

//Why are today's Christians confused about spiritual matters?//
2 Tim 2:15 ... RIGHTLY DIVIDING the word of truth
It's simple to divide the scripture speaking of the church which is one body, from the nation which has twelve tribes. The church of one body doesn't have twelve tribes.

Where the twelve tribes are found in your Bible it's speaking about God working through Israel. God works on earth through the church only where he is no longer working through the twelve tribes.

This means the one body church is not found anywhere in Genesis through Malachi, Jesus earthly ministry to Israel, at Pentecost in Acts 2, nor in the Hebrew epistles written to the twelve tribes by the apostles, including the book of Revelation.
---michael_e on 3/6/14


I don't think that all Christians will EVER believe exactly the same things which other Christians believe. Sometimes it is helpful to discuss differences but not always. The ways we've been taught all vary and we should emphasise more the similarities to help our fellowship with others.

Believing that Christ took our punishment so that we won't be punished and thanking him for that GIFT, after confessing our sins, is far more important than whether we have been baptised one way and someone else another, whether we believe tongues is for today or not, whether we should kneel to pray or stand with hands raised etc.

Knowing HIM and studying His word is far more important than thrashing out differences between denominations.

steveng, you are right, many Christians are confused. when new Christians are not dicipled and grounded in the Word. that is a shame because in times past I have seen that on christianet. some views are very confusing. maybe what you think is right, I may not agree but we are to work out our own salvation.

Steveng://Why are today's Christians confused about spiritual matters?//

Different levels, slants, angles of understanding.

Well I am not so sure some are not following JESUS the best they know how.

A person can love and follow JESUS yet be confused because they tend to listen to those in authority instead of studying for themselves.

Yes JESUS would get flamed here. But He would answer in love.

The reason for the confusion is that we have inherited confusion from our forefathers. The original author of that confusion is Satan.

The problem is what do we do about it and how do we decided what is truth. To me the Bible is the final source of all truth and we should follow what it says.

Confusion is the devil's stock and trade, Making you believe you're spiritually guided is his best camouflage !

Confusion is of the Devil and it is his job to do just that for he comes to steal,kill,and destroy. Another problem is some people are know it alls who don't have a teachable spirit and therefore avoid anything they don't already believe even if they are wrong they cling tight to what they believe because what they know is more comfortable than receiving the truth.

They are confused because they don't follow Jesus. When we follow His words and teachings about salvation, baptism and end time events we can be sure that we have the Truth because He is the Truth. Jesus' doctrine is the same as His Father's (John 7:16-19) and He was sent to bear witness to the Truth. John 18:37.

Because they listen to the traditions of men rather than obeying the word of God. As for "confusion", they are called the daughters of Babylon for that very reason.

True Christians are not confused at all. They are guided by the Holy Spirit. Confusion comes to those who are not grounded in the faith, they are still grounded with the world and think like the world does, using only worldly wisdom.
Jesus Christ is not Lord of their lives.
