COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2] ANSWERS GIVEN ON USE OF FOUL LANGUAGE ON THE INTERNET


[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 914A]

Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. 5 And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. 6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. 1 Corinthians 12:4 – 6, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

All have different gifts and/or talents but all should work toward a common cause; to wit, the furthering of the Creator’s purpose for all to know h is will and to work toward letting all have the opportunity of learning it and following it. Yes as 1 Corinthians 12:12 statesa, [AV] “For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.” It is necessary to learn His purpose and as Matthew 24:14 says, [AV] “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.”

Francis David said it long ago, "Neither the sword of popes...nor the image of death will halt the march of truth. "Francis David, 1579, written on the wall of his prison cell." Read the book, "What Does The Bible Really Teach" and the Bible today, and go to WWW.JW.ORG!

[2] ANSWERS GIVEN ON USE OF FOUL LANGUAGE ON THE INTERNET

You are correct, there is no need for foul language anywhere and especially on the Internet. In fact the Apostle Luke wrote (Luke 19:22), "...Out of your own mouth, I judge you, wicked slave....," and at (Luke 6:45), "A good man brings forth good out of the good treasure of his heart, but a wicked man brings forth what is wicked out of his wicked mouth; for out of the heart's abundance his mouth speaks."


First, there is no need for foul language anywhere and especially on the Internet. In fact the Apostle Luke wrote (Luke 19:22), "...Out of your own mouth, I judge you, wicked slave....," and at (Luke 6:45), "A good man brings forth good out of the good treasure of his heart, but a wicked man brings forth what is wicked out of his wicked mouth; for out of the heart's abundance his mouth speaks."

Second, you are correct, 'There have been more violence in the name of your religion than I care to shake a stick at;' however, there is something else you are overlooking. Just because MOST RELIGION is false/incorrect does not mean all is in error. Satan the Devil has caused many religions to come into being for the purpose of making it difficult to find the true religion which God the Creator approves.

Third, there is no need for character assassination, you should stick with the facts not hurl names at those who present you with facts you do not like hearing,i.e., 'don't kill the messenger.' Do a critical none bias evaluation from a neutral view point and not have the attitude, 'my minds is made up, do not confuse me with facts.'

COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2] ANSWERS TO MISCELLANEOUS QUESTIONS


[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 915A]

From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love. Ephesians 4:16, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

It is necessary that all the parts of Almighty God’s (YHWH’s) earthly organization work together and those NOT doing so are not really a part of it. To this end His faithful followers are directed at Matthew 28:19 – 20, [AV] “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” Yes, this is necessary as Revelation 22:17, [AV] “And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. 18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:” Yes, all things must be done in unity and nothing added to it.

[2] ANSWERS TO MISCELLANEOUS QUESTIONS

First, problems should be talked about and action taken to ameliorate/resolve them. God sees everything that is taking place and will be the ultimate judge.

Second, unfortunately you are right, people forget about wrong doing quickly when the media no longer reports on it. However, the evil root cause remains.

Third, I personally know of a Catholic Church child molester, ex-Bishop O'Conner who formerly served in the Cathedral in Palm Beach Gardens.

Fourth, 'There have been more violence and wrong doing in the name of your religion that I care to shake a stick at, in fact two World Wars were started by so Called Christian nations who claimed to be following Jesus, the Prince of Peace;' however, there is something else you are overlooking. Just because MOST RELIGION is false/incorrect does not mean all is in error. Satan the Devil has caused many religions to come into being for the purpose of making it difficult to find the true religion which God the Creator approves.

For example, recently every time you read or hear the news it either deals with another member of the clergy of the Catholic faith molesting children or parishioners, or suicide bombers attaching Israelis and/or Israel’s response. It makes one wonder why the leaders to these two large faiths, Catholic and Muslim (Islam) do not clean their own house. They both claim to be doing the will of God, but their actions clearly show otherwise, one has been covering up as SOP for the breaking of God’s law by their clergy at all levels, and the other fails to respect God’s law with respect to the sanctity of life in that it takes no steps to get their “own house in order” and stop suicide bombings by their members. These events cast serious doubts with respect the teachings of both groups. Their past practice of the Catholic Church of moving problem priest to a new church instead of getting them to clean-up their act or get out brings into serious doubt if they, the Catholic Church (Roman), are real followers of Jesus Christ. This abomination by this church is contributing to the continuing degeneration of morals in the US is tearing the nation apart; have we learned nothing from history? The Roman Empire fell from within from degeneration of morals before it ever fell to external forces, note, at the time of its fall the official state church was , the Catholic Church (Roman). The underlying ailment is in reality sex abuse and/or perversion of all flavors instead of abstinence. This is just part of the larger question being asked and which is often asked in the wrong way, i.e., the question should not be which type of sex abuse or perversion is more destructive, fornication, adultery, homosexuality, bestiality, pedophilism, etc. or which type of illegal drug abuse, crack cocaine, heroin, one of the designer drugs, etc. is more destructive; the reality is they are all destructive and all contribute to the degeneration of morality in the nation.

With respect to the Muslim (Islam) religion, serious doubts are also cast since their members tend to believe they will become martyrs and have 72 virgins in Heaven if they become suicide bombers. Their leaders do nothing to correct this wrong thinking and lack of respect for God’s commandments; thereby, sharing in their wrongs. If so called religions who publicly profess to believe in God but do the works of his arch enemy the Devil continue in their wrong ways instead of providing moral guidance, this world is doomed. I will proceed to go into the errors of wrong sexual desires and their results, including the AIDS plague.

COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2] ANSWERS ON THE SHEPARD HATE CASE


[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 916A]

16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. 2 Timothy 3:16 – 17, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

Almighty God (YHWH) gave mankind the gift of language so they could pray to Him and give Him praise. Psalmss 40:5, [AV] “Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us–ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.” Which high-lights the wonderful gifts He has given mankind.

In fact Psalmss 92:5, shows how in-depth this gifts, [AV] “O LORD, how great are thy works! and thy thoughts are very deep.” Which clearly shows His thoughts go very deep. This same thought is amplified at Psalmss 139:17, [AV] “How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!”

[2] ANSWERS ON THE SHEPARD HATE CASE:

First, what happened to Matthew Shepard should not have occurred, and clearlly one should not let his animals, dogs, kill the neighbor. The Holy Bible plainly shows we should not judge our neighbors, but love them. This does not mean loving their sin. Matthew 7:1-2, states, "Stop judging that you may not be judged; for with what judgment you are judging, you will be judged," and Romans 14:4, 10-13, "Who are you to judge the house servant of another? To his own master he stands or falls. Indeed, he will be made to stand, for God can make him stand. But why do you judge your brother? For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of God... Therefore let us not be judging one another any longer," this plainly shows no true Christian should be executing judgment on anyone with respect sin. In fact this would be a usurping of God's exclusive right, i.e., blaspheme, Matthew 25:31-32 states, "When the Son of man arrives in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit down on his glorious throne. And all the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate people one from another, just as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats."

Second, we should be loving our neighbors and attempting to get them to turn away from sin, not judging, hurting, or killing them in violation of God's law. Luke 10:27 states, "....You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your being, with all your strength, and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself." Matthew 5:21-22 clearly states this devine principle, "....'You must not murder; but whoever commits a murder will be accountable to the court of justice.' However, I say to you that everyone who continues wrathful with his brother (neighbor) will be accountable to the court of justice; but whoever addresses his brother with an unspeakable word of contempt will be accountable to the Supreme Court (God's court, not the Supreme Court of the US); whereas whoever says, 'You despicable fool! will be liable to the fiery Gehenna. (often mistranslated as hell)."

Third, it should be obvious to all that the goons that killed Shepard were in the wrong. We should be helping our neighbor not harming him/her in one way or another. Now a question, why do many individuals seek to run others down or harm them when they are not endangering them? Please do a little Biblical research and see if you can uncover the root cause.

COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2] THE RARE FRUIT OR VEGETABLE - Hymenaea courbaril – Jatoba


[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 917A]

The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. 10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. 11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward. Psalms 19:9 – 11, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

If we want to be forgiven for our trespasses, we must be willing to forgive others for their trespasses against us as clearly shown at Matthew 18:28 – 35, [AV] “Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt. 28 But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellowservants, which owed him an hundred pence: and he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, Pay me that thou owest. 29 And his fellowservant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all. 30 And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt. 31 So when his fellowservants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that was done. 32 Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because thou desiredst me: 33 Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee? 34 And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him. 35 So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.” Yes, to receive a good judgment, we must cultivate compassion.

[2] Here is a Commentary on Bountiful Trees and Vegetables God (YHWH) has provided for mankind, specifically the Hymenaea courbaril – Jatoba.

A well known tree throughout much of tropical America. Yields hard fruit pods with edible flesh and beautiful hardwood that is used in fine woodworking and furniture. The pulp has a stinky odor, but a sweet flavor that has numerous edible uses. The tree remains an important indigenous crop in some areas. Medium sized tree, unknown hardiness. ?[SOURCE - RETRIVED FROM https://mail.yahoo.com/d/folders/1/messages/44848 ON 5 24 /2018]

Family: Fabaceae
Genus: Hymenaea
Species: courbaril
Synonyms: Hymenaea animifera, H. candolleana, H. multiflora, H. resinifera, H. retusa, H. stilbocarpa, Inga megacarpa
Common Names: Jatoba, jatobá, stinking toe, algarrobo, azucar huayo, jataí, copal, Brazilian copal, courbaril, nazareno, Cayenne copal, demarara copal, gomme animee, pois confiture, guapinol, guapinole, loksi, South American locust
Part Used: Bark, resin, leaves

Jatobá is a huge canopy tree, growing to 30 m in height, and is indigenous to the Amazon rainforest and parts of tropical Central America. It produces bright green leaves in matched pairs, white, fragrant flowers that are pollinated by bats, and an oblong, brown, pod-like fruit with large seeds inside. The fruit is considered edible although hardly tasty; one of its common names, "stinking toe," is used to describe the smell and taste of the fruit! In the Peruvian Amazon the tree is called azucar huayo and, in Brazil, jatobá. The Hymenaea genus comprises two dozen species of tall trees distributed in tropical parts of South America, Mexico, and Cuba.
Several species of Hymenaea, including jatobá, produce usable copal resins. At the base of the jatobá tree an orange, sticky, resinous gum collects, usually underground (however, the bark also produces smaller amounts of resin when wounded). The resin of Hymenaea trees converts to amber through a remarkable chemical process requiring millions of years. During this process, volatile plant chemicals leach out of the resin and other non-volatile chemicals bond together. This forms a hard polymer that is resistant to natural decay processes and the ravages of time. As portrayed in the Jurassic Park movies, amber of million-year-old Hymenaea trees have provided scientists with many clues to its prehistoric presence on earth as well as to the insects and other plants encased in it.
TRIBAL AND HERBAL MEDICINE USES
In the Amazon, jatobá's aromatic copal resin is dug up from the base of the tree and burned as incense, used in the manufacture of varnishes, used as a glaze for pottery, and is employed medicinally. Indians in the Amazon have long used the resin in magic rituals, love potions and in wedding ceremonies. Although the name Hymenaea is derived from Hymen, the Greek God of marriage, it refers to the green leaflets that always occur in matching pairs, rather than the Indian's use of it in marriage ceremonies. Jatobá's bark and leaves also have an ancient history of use with the indigenous tribes of the rainforest. The bark of the tree is macerated by the Karaja Indians in Peru and Creole people in Guyana to treat diarrhea. In Ka'apor ethnobotany, jatobá bark is taken orally to stop excessive menstrual discharge, applied to wounded or sore eyes, and used to expel intestinal worms and parasites. The bark is used in the Peruvian Amazon for cystitis, hepatitis, prostatitis, and coughs. In the Brazilian Amazon, the resin is used for coughs and bronchitis, and a bark tea is used for stomach problems as well as foot and nail fungus.
With its long history of indigenous use, it would follow that jatobá has a long history of use in herbal medicine systems throughout South America. It was first recorded in Brazilian herbal medicine in 1930. The bark was described by Dr. J. Monteiro Silva who recommended it for diarrhea, dysentery, general fatigue, intestinal gas, dyspepsia, hematuria, bladder problems, and hemoptysis (coughing blood from the lungs). The resin was recommended for all types of upper respiratory and cardiopulmonary problems. In the mid-1960s an alcohol bark extract called Vinho de Jatobá was widely sold throughout Brazil as a tonic and fortificant, for energy, and for numerous other disorders.
In traditional medicine in Panama, the fruit is used to treat mouth ulcers and the leaves and wood are used for diabetes. In the United States, jatobá is used as a natural energy tonic, for such respiratory ailments as asthma, laryngitis, and bronchitis, as a douche for yeast infections and it is taken internally as a decongestant and for systemic candida in the stomach and intestines. It is also used in the treatment of hemorrhages, bursitis, bladder infections, arthritis, prostatitis, yeast and fungal infections, cystitis, and is applied topically for skin and nail fungus. At present, none of the research has indicated that jatobá has any toxicity. One study highlighted the mild allergic effect that jatobá resin may have when used externally.
PLANT CHEMICALS
Chemical analysis of jatobá shows that it is rich in biologically active compounds including diterpenes, sesquiterpenes, flavonoids, and oligosaccharides. The phytochemical makeup of jatobá is very similar to another resin-producing rainforest tree, copaiba, which is also featured in this book. Some of these same chemicals occuring in both plants (such as copalic acid, delta-cadinene, caryophyllene and alpha-humulene) have shown to exhibit significant anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antifungal and antitumor activities in clinical studies. In other research, another of jatobá's phytochemicals, astilbin, was shown in a 1997 clinical study to provide antioxidant and liver protective properties.
Jatobá also contains terpene and phenolic chemicals which are responsible for protecting the tree from fungi in the rainforest. In fact, the jatobá tree is one of the few trees in the rainforest that sports a completely clean trunk bark, without any of the usual mold and fungus found on many other trees in this wet and humid environment. These antifungal terpenes and phenolics have been documented in several studies over the years and the antifungal activity of jatobá is attributed to these chemicals.
The main chemicals found in jatobá include: Alpha-copaene, alpha-cubebene, alpha-himachalene, alpha-humulene, alpha-muurolene, alpha-selinene, astilibin, beta-bisabolene, beta-bourbonene, beta-copaene, betacubebene, beta-gurjunene, beta-humulene, beta-selinene, beta-sitosterol, calarene, carboxylic acids, caryophyllene, catechins, clerodane diterpenes, communic acids, copacamphene, copalic acid, cubebene, cyclosativene, cyperene, delta-cadinene, gamma-muurolene, gamma-cadinene, halimadienoic acids, heptasaccharides, kovalenic acid, labdadiene acids, octasaccharides, oligosaccharides, ozic acids, polysaccharides, selinenes, and taxifolin.
BIOLOGICAL ACTIVITIES AND CLINICAL RESEARCH
In addition to its antifungal properties, jatobá also has been documented to have anti-yeast activity against a wide range of organisms including Candida. Other clinical studies have been performed on jatobá since the early 1970s which have shown that it has antimicrobial, molluscicidal (kills/controls snails & slugs), and antibacterial activities, including in vitro actions against such organisms as E. coli, Psuedomonas, Staphylococcus and Bacillus. In addition, a water extract of jatobá leaves has demonstrated significant hypoglycemic activity, producing a significant reduction in blood sugar levels (which validates another traditional use).
CURRENT PRACTICAL USES
Practitioners have long reported that jatobá bark has shown dramatic results with acute and chronic cystitis and prostatitis. Many practitioners today are discovering that these chronic conditions oftentimes can be fungal in nature rather than bacterial. The widespread use of antibiotics to treat these conditions can actually kill off friendly bacteria which live off fungi - and increase the chances of a fungal problem or encourage fungal growth - even to the point of making the condition chronic. When these types of chronic prostatitis and cystitis cases react so quickly and dramatically to jatobá supplements, is it probably from jatobá's antifungal and anti-yeast properties at work, not its antibacterial properties.
Natural health practitioners in the United States are learning of jatobá's many uses and employing it as a natural remedy for prostatitis and cystitis, as a healthful tonic for added energy (without any caffeine or harmful stimulants), and for many fungal and yeast problems such as candida, athlete's foot, yeast infections and stubborn nail fungus. It is a wonderful, helpful natural remedy from an important and ancient rainforest resource. ?[SOURCE - RETRIVED FROM http://www.rain-tree.com/jatoba.htm#.WwdE2SApBDU ON 5/24/2018]

In Genesis 1:11-13, "And God said, Let the earth put forth grass, herbs yielding seed, and fruit-trees bearing fruit after their kind, wherein is the seed thereof, upon the earth: and it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth grass, herbs yielding seed after their kind, and trees bearing fruit, wherein is the seed thereof, after their kind: and God saw that it was good. 13 And there was evening and there was morning, a third day.

COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2] REPLY WITH RESPECT JUDGING


[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 918A]

Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all. 16 Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee. 1 Timothy 4:15 – 16, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

Almighty God (YHWH) has given mankind amazing abilities that He did not give to the animals. Man is able to communicate with the spoken word, read, write and understand the spoken word. He can use these miraculous gifts to praise God, or he can use them for unworthy purposes. As Revelation 4:11 states, [AV] “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.”

He created us with His attributes of cognitive reasoning, the ability to love, and the ability to meditate on spiritual things per Genesis 1:27, [AV] “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”

Francis David said it long ago, "Neither the sword of popes...nor the image of death will halt the march of truth. "Francis David, 1579, written on the wall of his prison cell." Read the book, "What Does The Bible Really Teach" and the Bible today, and go to WWW.JW.ORG!

[2] REPLY WITH RESPECT JUDGING

First, named labels, i.e., Catholic, Methodist, Jew, etc. have no relationship to who is a true Christian. I believe we all know decent people and wicked people in all named label groups. In this you are really asking me to be a judge and this I will not be for the following reasons, Matthew 7:1-2, states, "Stop judging that you may not be judged; for with what judgment you are judging, you will be judged," and Romans 14:4, 10-13, "Who are you to judge the house servant of another? To his own master he stands or falls. Indeed, he will be made to stand, for God can make him stand. But why do you judge your brother? For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of God... Therefore let us not be judging one another any longer," this plainly shows no true Christian should be executing judgment on anyone with respect sin. In fact this would be a usurping of God's exclusive right, i.e., blaspheme, Matthew 25:31-32 states, "When the Son of man arrives in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit down on his glorious throne. And all the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate people one from another, just as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats."

Second, this is really a question of what we must do to be saved, i.e., be true Christians. For this we must trun to god's word and to that end I will give you some very pertinent scriptures to look up that will start you on the path to becoming a true Christian if you really desire to do so.
Matthew 10:32-33,
John 17:3,
John 3:17,
Acts 4:12,
Romans 10:9 and 10:13,
1 Corinthians 1:18,
1 Corinthians 5:5,
1 Corinthians 10:33
Ephasians 2:8,
1 Peter 4:18,
Luke 2:30,
Luke 3:6,
John 17:3,
Mark 16:16
Acts 2:38
1 Peter 3:21

Third, qualification is an individual thing and not an organizational thing just as is the opposite, i.e., wilfully sinning

COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2] WE MUST KNOW AND PROCLAIM THE ONLY TRUE GOD


[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 919A]

Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Matthew 7:13 – 14, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

The Apostle Matthew continues on and warns against the false prophets who seek to mislead and corrupt us at Matthew 7:15 – 20, [AV] “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.” The Apostle John makes it clear how you can identify the genuine true followers of Jesus (Yeshua) at John 13:35, [AV] “By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.” Also, the Apostle Luke stressed this same truth at Acts 10:35, [AV] “But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.”

Francis David said it long ago, "Neither the sword of popes...nor the image of death will halt the march of truth. "Francis David, 1579, written on the wall of his prison cell." Read the book, "What Does The Bible Really Teach" and the Bible today, and go to WWW.JW.ORG!

[2] WE MUST KNOW AND PROCLAIM THE ONLY TRUE GOD

First, it is the obligation of all per John 17:3, "This means everlasting life, their taking in knowledge of you the only true God, and of the one whom you sent forth, Jesus Christ." This of course implies individual study plus assistance as required.

Second, all true Christians as followers of Jesus Christ MUST seek to let others know about him and his father, God the Maker of All, John 18:37, "For this I have been born and for this I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone that is on the side of the truth listens to my voice." Luke 12:8, "I say, then, to you, Everyone that confesses union with me before men, the Son of man will also confess union with him before the angels of God." Hebrews 13:15, "Through him let us always offer to God a sacrifice of prains, that is, the fruit of lips which make public declaration to his name." ! Corinthians 9:16, "If, now, I am declaring the good news, it is no reason for me to boast, for necessity is laid upon me. Really, woe is to me if I did not declare the good news!" Also, see Romans 10:9-10, Luke 8:1, John 18:37, Matthew 18:19-20, Acts 1:8, Acts 2:17-18, Psalms 148:12-13, Psalms 68:11, etc. Therefore, as all can clearly see, it is the obligation of all true Christians to teach their neighbor, and even the more so as we are instructed to love our neighbor, see Luke 10:27, Luke 10:36, Romans 13:10, Ephesians 4:25, etc.

Third, when one veers off course as we all do at sometime, he/she should immediately seek assistance to get 'back-on-path.'

COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2] ANSWER TO WHAT CONSTITUTES THE TRUE RELIGION


[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 920A]

But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. 24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. John 4:23 – 24, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

Yes, we must worship him in faith and this is testified to at Deuteronomy 30:11 – 14, [AV] “For this commandment which I command thee this day, it is not hidden from thee, neither is it far off. 12 It is not in heaven, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go up for us to heaven, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it? 13 Neither is it beyond the sea, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it? 14 But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it.” It is as stated at Isaiah 41:13, [AV] “For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.”

[2] ANSWER TO WHAT CONSTITUTES THE TRUE RELIGION

There are two possible answers to the question you pose, with respect what is the way of telling what is the true relegion. One would be a long, a book in length, examining all pertinent scriptures against all possible beliefs which is adequately done in some of the works by John M'Clintock and James Strong, which is way to long. The other is observing the effects on the believers of the various religions as follows:

1. Do they show neighborly love to their neighbors?

2. Do they try and help their neighbors take in knowledge according to John 17:3, "This means everlasting life, their taking in knowledge of you the only true God, and of the one whom you sent forth, Jesus Christ."

3. Do they have love among themselves or are they always fighting due to differences in races or nationalities, i.e., German Catholics and Lutherns against Dutch, French, etc. Catholics and Lutherns in two World Wars.

4. Do they support doctrines not supported in the Bible such as the Trinity which actually was first adopted by one of the twisted traditional religions at the Council of Nicea in 325 A.D. when one bishop, Athanasius won out against another, Arius, due to politics in the Roman Empire.

5. Do they support the aspirations of various nations or keep themselves apart, i.e., separated to serve God in keeping with 1 John 5:19, "We know we originate with God, but the whole world in lying in the power of the wicked one."

6. With respect to holidays, we can see most do not honour God, see Genesis 40:20-22, Matthew 14:6-10, etc. History testifies that faithful servants of God shunned such celebrations, see "The History of the Christian Religion and Church During the Three First Centuries," by Augustus Neander as translated by Henry John Rose; the "Cyclopedia of Biblical, Theological and Ecclesistical Literature," by John M'Clintock and James Strong, Vol. I, p. 817; "The Catholic Encyclopedia," Vol. X, p. 709 (quoting Origen Adamantius of the third century)(1911 ed.); "The Two Babylons," by Reverend Hilsop; etc.

7. Do they persecute others with different beliefs? Or do they seek to show others the error of their ways in a loving, not twisted way, like, the killing of Shepard, a homosexual.

8. Do they seek prominence for themselves, i.e., their religious leaders take high sounding titles and wear distinctive garb? See Matthew 23 chapter, read and you will understand the significance.

I could go on and on but will not as I have already given a cursory overview to the answer to your question that is an excellent starter with respect searching out which religion is or is not approved by God, and which are wrong paths thrown out by Satan the Devil to snare the uninformed.

COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2] IN USA, NRA IS NOT A HATE ORGANIZATION


[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 921A]

Therefore hearken unto me, ye men of understanding: far be it from God, that he should do wickedness; and from the Almighty, that he should commit iniquity. 11 For the work of a man shall he render unto him, and cause every man to find according to his ways. 12 Yea, surely God will not do wickedly, neither will the Almighty pervert judgment. Job 34:10 – 12, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

Job had undoubtedly received good training from his parents, and well knew the ways of his Creator, Almighty God (YHWH), so that is why he was so sure that He would not do evil to him. This reality testifies to the need for parents to train their children in His ways as testified to at Proverbs 22:6, [AV] “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.’ But this training must be in mildness as shown by Colossians 3:21, [AV] “Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged.”

[2] IN USA, NRA IS NOT A HATE ORGANIZATION

I regularly read the NRA literature and so far I havn't found any hate-filled messages in it. I believe you are reading something into it that is plain and simply NOT THERE.

You should become more loving of your neighbor and respect his/her rights to enjoy the sport of his/her choosing and/or collecting of his/her choosing as long as he/she respects your rights as a human being. We were all given certain rights by God when we became members of the human race and others should not to further their own twisted concepts seek to take them away by any means.

The Holy Bible plainly shows we should not judge our neighbors, but love them. This does not mean loving their sin. Matthew 7:1-2, states, "Stop judging that you may not be judged; for with what judgment you are judging, you will be judged," and Romans 14:4, 10-13, "Who are you to judge the house servant of another? To his own master he stands or falls. Indeed, he will be made to stand, for God can make him stand. But why do you judge your brother? For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of God... Therefore let us not be judging one another any longer," this plainly shows no true Christian should be executing judgment on anyone with respect sin. In fact this would be a usurping of God's exclusive right, i.e., blaspheme, Matthew 25:31-32 states, "When the Son of man arrives in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit down on his glorious throne. And all the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate people one from another, just as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats."

We should be loving our neighbors and attempting to get them to turn away from sin, not judging, hurting, seeking to take away their enjoyment, i.e., guns and target shooting, or killing them in violation of God's law. Luke 10:27 states, "....You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your being, with all your strength, and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself." Matthew 5:21-22 clearly states this devine principle, "....'You must not murder; but whoever commits a murder will be accountable to the court of justice.' However, I say to you that everyone who continues wrathful with his brother (neighbor) will be accountable to the court of justice; but whoever addresses his brother with an unspeakable word of contempt will be accountable to the Supreme Court (God's court, not the Supreme Court of the US); whereas whoever says, 'You despicable fool! will be liable to the fiery Gehenna. (often mistranslated as hell)."

COMBINATION OF [1] THE SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY AND [2] HOW TO UNDERSTAND THE BIBLE


[1] SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY [VOL. 923A]

He trusted in the LORD God of Israel; so that after him was none like him among all the kings of Judah, nor any that were before him. 6 For he clave to the LORD, and departed not from following him, but kept his commandments, which the LORD commanded Moses. 2 Kings 18:5 – 6, [authorized King James Bible; AV]

Although King Hezekiah was the son of one of the most wicked kings of Judah, and had had one of the worst childhoods imaginable, even witnessing the burning a son as a sacrifice to a pagan god, he over came these bad influences and became one of the best kings of Judah. He per 2 Chronicles 29:1 – 11, [AV] “Hezekiah began to reign when he was five and twenty years old, and he reigned nine and twenty years in Jerusalem. And his mother’s name was Abijah, the daughter of Zechariah. 2 And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, according to all that David his father had done. 3 He in the first year of his reign, in the first month, opened the doors of the house of the LORD, and repaired them. 4 And he brought in the priests and the Levites, and gathered them together into the east street, 5 And said unto them, Hear me, ye Levites, sanctify now yourselves, and sanctify the house of the LORD God of your fathers, and carry forth the filthiness out of the holy place. 6 For our fathers have trespassed, and done that which was evil in the eyes of the LORD our God, and have forsaken him, and have turned away their faces from the habitation of the LORD, and turned their backs. 7 Also they have shut up the doors of the porch, and put out the lamps, and have not burned incense nor offered burnt offerings in the holy place unto the God of Israel. 8 Wherefore the wrath of the LORD was upon Judah and Jerusalem, and he hath delivered them to trouble, to astonishment, and to hissing, as ye see with your eyes. 9 For, lo, our fathers have fallen by the sword, and our sons and our daughters and our wives are in captivity for this. 10 Now it is in mine heart to make a covenant with the LORD God of Israel, that his fierce wrath may turn away from us. 11 My sons, be not now negligent: for the LORD hath chosen you to stand before him, to serve him, and that ye should minister unto him, and burn incense.” And at 2 Chronicles 29:28

– 24, [AV] “Then they went in to Hezekiah the king, and said, We have cleansed all the house of the LORD, and the altar of burnt offering, with all the vessels thereof, and the shewbread table, with all the vessels thereof. 19 Moreover all the vessels, which king Ahaz in his reign did cast away in his transgression, have we prepared and sanctified, and, behold, they are before the altar of the LORD. 20 Then Hezekiah the king rose early, and gathered the rulers of the city, and went up to the house of the LORD. 21 And they brought seven bullocks, and seven rams, and seven lambs, and seven he goats, for a sin offering for the kingdom, and for the sanctuary, and for Judah. And he commanded the priests the sons of Aaron to offer them on the altar of the LORD. 22 So they killed the bullocks, and the priests received the blood, and sprinkled it on the altar: likewise, when they had killed the rams, they sprinkled the blood upon the altar: they killed also the lambs, and they sprinkled the blood upon the altar. 23 And they brought forth the he goats for the sin offering before the king and the congregation; and they laid their hands upon them: 24 And the priests killed them, and they made reconciliation with their blood upon the altar, to make an atonement for all Israel: for the king commanded that the burnt offering and the sin offering should be made for all Israel.” Then he, 2 Chronicles 31:1, [AV] “Now when all this was finished, all Israel that were present went out to the cities of Judah, and brake the images in pieces, and cut down the groves, and threw down the high places and the altars out of all Judah and Benjamin, in Ephraim also and Manasseh, until they had utterly destroyed them all. Then all the children of Israel returned, every man to his possession, into their own cities.” Re-introduced clean worship in all of Judah.” This right action of his clearly proves a person’s past does not have to determine his future.

Francis David said it long ago, "Neither the sword of popes...nor the image of death will halt the march of truth. "Francis David, 1579, written on the wall of his prison cell." Read the book, "What Does The Bible Really Teach" and the Bible today, and go to WWW.JW.ORG!

[2] HOW TO UNDERSTAND THE BIBLE

The first thing a person must do when attempting to interpret the Bible is to approach it with an open mind. Do not study to try and justify what you believe; study to determine what you SHOULD believe based on the word of God.

For the most part, the Bible interprets itself. Some Scriptures are more difficult to understand than others. It's important to study all of what the Bible says on a particular subject (i.e., marriage) and then interpret the difficult passages based on the clear, easy passages. If you interpret a difficult passage in such a manner as to contradict an easy-to-understand passage, then you need to reconsider your interpretation of the difficult passage.

In order to interpret the Bible correctly, you have to be willing to set aside man's doctrines and creeds and use the Bible ONLY. Much confusion is caused when men add human doctrines formulated over the years to the word of God. What usually ends up happening is that man tries to mold the Bible to fit man's teachings.

It's also important to "rightly divide the word" by understanding the difference between the Old Testament and the New Testament. The Old Testatment was for the Jews only until Christ came (Galations 3). The New Testament is the will of Christ that is binding on us today and came into affect upon His death (Hebrews 9). Many people try to justify what they do based on a law that was never intended for them to follow.

The context of the passage must be taken into consideration. Greek and Hebrew dictionaries may need to be consulted for a more accurate understanding of what the words meant in their original language.

You also need to understand how to establish Bible authority. There are three ways to establish Scriptural authority (which follow principles of logic): by direct command, by approved example, and by necessary inference.
