Prov 8:5
Jer 10:8
Ezekial 13:3 T..
Matt 7:26
---Monk_Brendan on 10/15/15

Might include prophets, as Christ fulfilled everyone of them. I agree all of these you posted apply. To you and the universal cult you've joined. Flee the scarlet woman.
Joh_3:19 this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
Jer_31:35 saith the LORD, which giveth the sun for a light by day, the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night,...

Jer 31:36 If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the LORD, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me for ever.

Prov 8:5 You who are simple, gain prudence, you who are foolish, set your hearts on it.

Jer 10:8 They are all senseless and foolish, they are taught by worthless wooden idols.

Ezekial 13:3 This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Woe to the foolish prophets who follow their own spirit and have seen nothing!

Matt 7:26 everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand.

I care, even though you are not my neighbor, kin or brother. Therefore I'll let scripture rebuke your false piety.

2Ti_4:2 Preach the word, be instant in season, out of season, reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
Tit_1:13 This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith,
Tit_2:15 These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.

...Jesus told his disciples to stay out of the Samaritan villages ...(Acts 8:25).
...preached the Gospel in many villages of the Samaritans.

Why did they preach to the Samaritans?
---David on 10/13/15

Understand. There is a word mystery here perhaps...Christ said "city". Acts says village. Perhaps there was danger for them the Apostles in the larger cities. Perhaps there are many reasons. Pre death, post death.
A village is not a city on the other hand.
Woman at the well is Samaritan born citizen of Jacobs lineage. There are "Good Samaritans"...are their Bad ones...yes.
Citizenship is not heritage or race. If I was born in Japan...am I still of Scottish Caucasian origin?

If a person does not have an answer why answer?
---andreea on 10/10/15

Wondered the same thing about cluny myself. He does not respond to scripture on top of scripture because he cannot. He knows it was given by GOD. His church has him captive like Judeans were captive in Christ's time.
Act 28:26 Saying, Go unto this people, and say, Hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand, and seeing ye shall see, and not perceive:
Act 28:27 For the heart of this people is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes have they closed, lest they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

OTOH, Christ is NEVER reviled by YOUR mindset, is He, Trav?
---Cluny on 10/8/15

Perhaps when I waste time posting Israels scripture that your mindset reviles.

Ancient mindset spoken of, your churches bring to mind. Resembling the Sadducees and Pharisees.
Wearing expensive robes and trappings to be seen/honored of men. Loud prayers to be heard of men.
High priest's/monks who strain at a scriptural gnat and swallow a doctrinal camel. Standing between GOD as intercessors and abomination fathers.
Luk_20:46 Beware of the scribes, which desire to walk in long robes, love greetings in the markets, and the highest seats in the synagogues, the chief rooms at feasts,
---Trav on 10/9/15


it is true treay that the New Covenant is made with Israel.

But all gentile are invited into that Covenant. Jesus said his house shall be a place of prayer for all nations quoting Isiah 56:7

Romans 11. The Gospel to Cornellis the Centurion acts 10 was a gentile and the Jews had the same trouble you have. But the Holy Spirit convicted them of the truth.

Read Ephesians.

Act 13:47
For so hath the Lord commanded us, saying, I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth.

Isiah 42:6. Read Galatians.

Monk Brennan, take the high road brother. Don't let these blogs make you upset. Take a minute to breath.

I have found it incredibly difficult if not impossible to open the eyes of the blind. We are not Christ. We cannot change beliefs without his help.

Cluny, all I have to say to you is I'm sorry I called you a grumpy old man on another post. I apologize. I also appreciate the fact that you didn't respond in kind. Also I admire your intelligence. There I said it.

Lord bless both of you.

You are a wolf in sheep's clothing. You are a snake, an idolater, and an heretic.

From now on, you are dead as far as I am concerned. I will pray for your soul.
---Monk_Brendan on 10/7/15

You would do better to find and tend to your own soul. I just seen it turned loose.

Christ was reviled by your mindset...I never expected anything less. Scripture had a way of exposing the "real" you.

Pro_5:12 And say, How have I hated instruction, and my heart despised reproof,

Luk_21:17 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake.
Joh_15:18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.

You are a wolf in sheep's clothing. You are a snake, an idolater, and an heretic. I have tried to be respectful to you, and have civil dialog, but all you want to do is attack me. From now on, you are dead as far as I am concerned. I will pray for your soul.

Huh? None of the verses I presented were about Israel. All were either types of the Eucharist or verses about the celebration of the Eucharist.

Nothing was to Israel!
---Monk_Brendan on 10/3/15

Making you a blind "monk". Twelve broke bread and drank with Christ. Twelve of Israel.
The covenant is to Israel...all Israel. Heb 8:8-10...saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah:...

Christ came for Israel. He didn't/doesn't fail. You do.
Mat_15:24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

---Cluny on 9/25/15

Mmmmm. Your temp is showing...internally cooked through and through. Scripture I've posted has roasted two geese here as seen. I responded when I had time. Every verse monk presented was to Israel, about Israel and for Israel. The light of which exposed you two. What monk can't do with his title is explain his churchs positions with scripture. If a non-monk, non-denominational sinner like me can stump a ortho/eastern (poser)intellectual giant like you and his church cousin monk...with scripture. It is a sign for "sheep" to beware your leaven.

Compassion, anger, lust, pity, and empathy are emotions. Love is an action.
Having compassion and ignoring it or acting against it is called hate.
Having compassion and acting upon it is called love.
That is our command from our Great High Priest.
Acting upon our emotions for the betterment of others and the glory of God, even unto the death of ourselves is the underlying message of the whole Bible. (John 3:16).
Name calling, belittling, irreverence, biased judgments, and false accusations are not love.
I fall into these pits myself and usually get my fingers stepped on when trying to get out.
We seem more apt to "kick-em while they're down" than to encourage and edify them back on the path.

\\Before you say you have considered,I can prove you haven't because of your negative divisive responses or "total" lack of response to specific scriptures.\\

Trav, I've seen where Monk_Brendan has given you specific scriptures, and you have never responded to them.

Since sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander, this means that your lack of response is proof that YOU have not considered what he has said.

Remember that God calls a double standard an abomination.

Ha, well said. Lets reaffirm my love. I care enough about you to tell you the truth. I post scriptures showing you truths about things you've never heard or considered. Before you say you have considered,I can prove you haven't because of your negative divisive responses or "total" lack of response to specific scriptures.
Now here, by your nasty little prodding post here, you've shown again that it is not scripture that moves you but, truth that cuts and wounds you.
So be it.

True Josef

Love is both an emotion and a choice. We choose to act in love towards others. But the love that GOD instills in our hearts leads us to choose to care and be merciful to others.

---Samuelbb7 on 9/24/15


David said, "Monk
Love is an emotion.
How do we come to Love God and our neighbor, as Christ loves them?"


Love is a CHOICE not an emotion. If you choose to hate someone--or even dislike someone--you are doing yourself and the other person a great disservice.

You can have the emotion of love toward someone, however, if you want that relationship to work, you must decide that you love that person.

I made a choice--a long time ago, that I would love God with all my heart, soul and mind, and my neighbor as myself. It has not always been easy, but I have tried to do so anyway. As a result I have very few enemies.

the unworthy monk Brendan
---Monk_Brendan on 9/24/15


If love is an emotion and not an act of the will (choice), why did Jesus command us to love?

After all, we have no control over our emotions, but we do over our choices.

---Leon on 9/23/15


Monk
Love is an emotion.
How do we come to Love God and our neighbor, as Christ loves them?

The answer, Christ must live in us, we must be born again. The love of Christ in us, is the most undeniable evidence of being born again. When Christ lives in us, his love for God and neighbor, will be projected in our lives.

What would cause Christ to want to live in a person? Well according to Christ, if anyone should want to follow him, instead of the foolish teachings of men, read (John 14:21-23) for a start.

Or you can believe in the "Do Nutin" doctrines.
---David on 9/24/15


"How would you convince someone that love causes you to keep the commandments?" Samuel that would be unnecessary. One who truly loves is influenced of the Father, and will fulfill His law, through the inspiration He provides. If one is not loving, thus fulfilling the commandments, then that one has yet to be inspired and empowered to yield themselves to that influence. Trying to execute the Father's love and keep His commandments in owns on strength or force of will, though noteworthy, is futile.
---josef on 9/23/15


True it is not followed as much as it should be. Loving others is not always easy.

Romans 13:8-11 states the last 5 of the Ten Commandments and that causes us to keep them.

The reason Paul did so is that GOD knew humans would say love but not actually follow through in actions.

But humans even many Christians teach that love means you do not have to do what the first four commandments say. Many use the name of Jesus and God as swear words yet consider themselves good Christians.

How would you convince someone that love causes you to keep the commandments?

---michael_e on 9/22/15


"Hmm . . . beneficial"

Yes, Jesus when He rose from the dead was "a life-giving spirit." (in 1 Corinthians 15:45) He makes us alive in love, and we in Jesus can help to make each other alive in His love . . . life-giving. This is beneficial (c:

"rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God." (1 Peter 3:4)

God's love makes us gentle and quiet, and this is preciously pleasing to our Father, so we are loving Him by being so pleasing to Him. And this gentleness and quietness can spread to others, with God's power making others also gentle and quiet in His love.
---Bill_and_Jan on 9/21/15


Concerning the verses:
Christ is explaining that the 10 commandments are based upon 2 precepts: 1st to love God and put Him first in your life, and 2nd to love our neighbor and treat him as we would want to be treated.

I do not see the second precept followed very often on this blog.

True love is empowered of the Father, a love that He has poured out in the heart of the believer that has been opened to Him, and His love. If the believer is opened to that love, it will, without question, be extended to and toward ones fellow man. If one who calls themselves a believer does not love his neighbor, that one does not truly know the Father, for the Father is love. As concerning these blogs, it is easy to recognize who loves and who doesn't, for "love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way.. The Father's love is an inward motive that leads to the tendency and inclination to do that which is uplifting, edifying, and beneficial to and toward ones fellow man.
