It depends on your "nice". The Jewish masculine Jesus has authority to define behavior and exact judgement and mercy. He came to save those that believe. He rebuked leaders, called them fools, cast out devils, and used force to move CROOKS out of the Temple. WE need to BE lead of God's Holy Spirit. Bear fruit of Love, peace and wisdom-(Galations 5) There will be a time He sets up His Kingdom on Earth, all sinners will be hunted down and killed for rebellion. Christ will rule with an Iron rod.

Was God nice when he killed everyone but Noah and family during the flood? The word "nice" does not mean the same thing to people, take a victim of a crime and the criminal. When the criminal gets punished the victim thinks this is nice but the criminal probably will not agree. Jesus cleaned 'His Fathers House' just before His ministry and another time just before His death. He was 'nice' to do this because He was just obeying His Father.

That's the problem with Christianity today.! Everyone wants "buddy Jesus" to deliver the nice messages that go down easy and lead people to a flamin devil's hell.
They don't want to hear the truth. He was given all glory and honour! The power to forgive sins and the power to bring them back to rememberance! The power to forgive and the power to damn! Power over all flesh!
---Frank on 12/22/07

As with the types and shadows using Joseph, Like pharouh, only on the throne is God greater than Christ! Truly the Light of the Moon is as the Sun! Truly he is that mediator between man and God! Only he has all say until the time appointed of the Father! Then when he lays all things at the feet of he who put all things in subjection to him he too will be subject to the Father! He can forgive the vilest offender and damn the wisest as the wisdom of this world is foolishness unto him!
---Frank on 12/22/07

In the days of his flesh so to speak he was nice in that he had mercy upon those whom man wouldn't. He had compassion on all that came to him in truth declaring him to be Lord and Christ with the power to forgive and to heal! He had anger and wrath and drove those who sold the Spirit out of his Father's house! A just weight and an equal balance is his delight! He sheweth mercy on whom he will and hardeneth whom he will!
Blessed be his holy name!
---Frank on 12/22/07

Jesus was a man but he did not sin so if he were to get angry it would not be as we think of anger - it would be as in a righteous indignation.
Being angry does not mean we are not nice. So I would say it would be inconsisitant with what I understand about the Lord.
Even when he cleared out the temple He did it with a cord. A cord would be braided and would take some time to make not off the cuff type of anger
---Andrea on 12/21/07

sue: great points!
---j._nonymous on 12/21/07

Wasn't Jesus a human man when he was on earth? So He probably did get mad sometimes. I mean, anger is a human emotion. But I believe that one can be assertive without being mean.
---sue on 12/21/07

What a question! The answer is of course not. He called people lots of stuff that make them mad, so mad they wanted to kill him and did. Just read His words yourself in Matthew, Mark and John. That is what they will do to God's bondservants in the last days too. Truth and lies do not mix. You will not make it to heaven beliving a lie.
---Dr._Rich on 12/20/07

Andrea: not sure who Shelli is. I would imagine more than myself has pondered this question though. Be blessed!
---j._nonymous on 12/20/07

this sounds familiar


anyway...Jesus did not have to react to our petty emotions etc. He acted of His own accord - He did not react in anger. He threw over the money changers tables but as an act of rebuke for what they did in the temple not a fit of anger

He was always loving not always nice
---Andrea on 12/20/07

God is Spirit and truth, and a very loving God and forgiving God. That said, God will not hesitate to use His Rod of Love on a child of His who is not in His will, or is not following His guidance for their life. The Rod of correction because He loves you. God Bless!
---Cynthia on 12/20/07

To do what you have to do at times when we have to do them,SOMEIMES require one to
express TUFF-LOVE.There is a calm to the Christian image [of those that posess this
trait]that the world do not have or cannot
obtain for themselves.To be strong in stature is not to let the negativity Of
weakness control what you do or say.
In other words, don't say yes, when you should say no.And don,t say no, when you
should say no.Read my profile and be prepared for something new.

Wouldn't it be nice if the role playing stopped and the cowardly would come out of hiding like a true man or woman of God?
Wouldn't it be nice, if the role players would be content to use only one penpal name and call it a day?
Wouldn't it be nice to have a dialogue with an authentic person that told the truth?

That's why Trish aka Madison is a delight, she uses one name, without an ever changing new story every day.
---lovable_linda on 12/17/07

lovable We are not talking about out and out rudeness. But there are times when Jesus does not feel like being nice. Now He is God and He does as He pleases. Do not be so accomodating that you get caught in a snare. There is a scripture.
---catherine on 12/17/07

Some of you probably let your server at the restaurantes have it, let your families have it, let the teller at the bank have it, anyone who gets in your way - have it.
Then in the next breath, call yourself a title that you enjoy and want us to bow down to, but in your heart - you aren't nice.
No worries, matey, about being "nice".

Do you know that there are many people who prophesy and preach from the their soulish realm, the mind?
It's true. You find this among followers of doctrines that do not believe that the Holy Spirit is God.
The prophecies and words that you hear are coming directly from the mind and not the Holy Spirit.
---lovable_linda on 12/17/07

Jesus Christ was God and Man when He walked the earth.
All of His decisions and behavior were led of and by The Holy Spirit.
He was always seeking and praying for proper guidance.
---lovable_linda on 12/17/07

You don't have to worry about always being nice, because you're not.
Some would like to use cuss words here if they could. You get away with much and some of the talk edges up to corrupt communication.
What you really want is permission to cut loose, in the manner that you probably do most every day with others in your real world.
---lovable_linda on 12/17/07

Gordon you know I got something along those lines last night from God. I asked Him, "Did you loved those wicked men who put you on that cross? And He said, "I love them unconditonally, but I had already judged them. God used the word unconditionally for all you doubtes and unbelievers. I do not talk like that. Infact, you can not tell on here but sometimes I don't talk too good. Except when I am under the influence of the Holy Spirit. My mouth and power I don't do too bad.

Catherine, You speak Truth. GOD is not "syrupy sweet and sugary nice" all of the time. YAHUSHUA got in the faces of the Pharisees and told them what a bunch of snakes they were. And, how they were going to Hell and taking others right along with them. YES! YAHUSHUA loved the Pharisees, but, it had to be a "Tough Love" because they REFUSED to see the Truth when He was standing right in front of them.
---Gordon on 12/17/07

God is a good God. Even to the unbelievers. He lets the rain come down. But God is not always nice. He does not always feel like it. Should we always be nice? It depends. WOE.>>>Woe to them! For they have brought evil on themselves. Isaiah 3-9.

Eloy: you're still not ansewring. Have you had one istance of sin since you got saved? Holiness is a work of the cross. Have you had to ask Jesus to forgive you since you accepted Christ? If you say you haven't since 2001, we should all be worshipping you. I give up.

We'l see just how "nice" he is when those clouds part at the last trump!
The Jews sought a mighty king and the Gentiles await a meek carpenter.
The Lord will take all the wise in their own craftiness.
The Jews got a meek carpenter and knew not the hour of their visitation. The Gentiles will dread what appears with all glory, honour and power.
It won't be "lovey-dovey", "buddy Jesus!"
They will wish they had heeded the warning and humbled themselves!

.j nonymous, I do not sin: I do righteousness. At 12, I gave my life to the Lord. At 23, I asked Jesus to save me. Satan destroyed my life, then lied to me saying that God does not care. I told God to leave me. On my death bed, on Sunday March 4, 2001 A.D. I prayed the Sinner's Prayer: Jesus himself came into my apartment and saved me all over again and healed me. Today I am glad to say, I am Saved- a true born-again Christian. Hallelujah! Thank you Jesus! You are most worthy to praised in all the earth!

The same Jesus that loved and healed was the same that made a scourge and drove the money changers and those who sold doves out of the temple. He called some a bunch of vipers. He rebuked the pharisees.
The lovey-dovey buddy Jesus theory is sending people to hell!
Many so-called Christians need to repent and humble themselves.
---Frank on 12/7/07

nonymous, I preach only truth, and void every falsehood. Because Jesus is the only Salvation for the whole world, is not the samething as the world being saved. On the contrary the whole world is condemned, and not until a person repents to Jesus are they saved. His call of Salvation is: "Come up to me, whosoever will, and I will save." But those whom refuse to come and abide and obey, remain of the world and remain condemned along with the world.
---Eloy on 12/7/07

nonymous, Each soul must personally apply what Jesus did on the cross, else the soul remains separated from God and they remain in their disobedience and God's wrath remains on them. Grace not gotten, is grace forgotten. His voice speaks: "Here I am, walk you in it." In what is he telling you to walk? in your disobedience? No, God forbid. But instead he is telling each one to walk in Jesus' righteousnes. Take up YOUR cross and follow after him, even as Jesus first took up HIS cross for God.

People do not want want to be told anything now days. Especially that they are going to go to hell. People are easily offended. They expect to be cuddled. Jesus has never, ever cuddled anyone. And He did not mind getting in your face when the need was there. Jesus warned a lot. Jesus came across sin and tried to do something about it and it cost Him His life.
---catherine on 12/7/07

We are called to act in love and kindness. He corrected those that needed correcting, and was firm, but love was always at the core of it. I don't think one should be fake nice, nor should one be hard, cold and mean, (even if they are right).

Since Jesus is God..He is the ultimate authority and what He does is Just and Right. He is perfect. He knows what is best for us.
Jesus is to be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace...

And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Do not be deceived, for God is not mocked. Jesus is double-edged sword nice: Obey him and you may sit with him in the heavenlies, but disobey him and you will surely be cut down and thrown into the fire of torments.

Jesus expressed emotion against the Pharahsees on many occasions and had anger regarding making merchandise of the house of prayer(temple). He was nice but objective and truthful and not afraid of mans thoughts regarding Him. He never hurt anyone in anger but spoke the truth. Jesus' essense is pure LOVE. So, I would say, yes, be nice.:)

john: Although He made a whip of cords, scripture never says that He struck anyone.

NO! He was not always. "You are nothing but snakes a generation of vipers how can you possibly escape HELL". Jesus said this in the New Testament. Now, in the Old Testament. Well, you had better just read it and find out for yourself. There is a scripture that warns you at times not to be too nice because you could end up in a snare commit a sin or sins. Never do we act like the people of this world. We don't shoot anybody or anything like that.

There was a time when he whipped some out of the temple and when he called some religious guys some nasty derogative names. He hurt some disciples feelings on several occasions too. I would call this "righteous anger". There is a time to be angry, but only at the correct things and with the correct motives.

Mark 11:15"And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves,"this not a description of being nice, rather it Is a description of righteous indignation. Personally, I believe being nice has its limitations. For example some ruffian cussing in front of a group of young people quickly moves me out of the mold of being nice.
