My two cents: The Bible says no rich man shall see the kingdom of God, they claim God wanted them to have worldly riches and blessed them. But then the good book says don't concern yourself with worldly concerns but rather put your focus towards heaven and niether do those who display thier christian piety for show in public, they already have thier reward. The self gratification of the praise and gifts of others they recieve by displaying thier faith is thier reward. Not eternal heaven. Being a good Christian means showing others about God's love by setting an example by simply loving others like God. There are some Christains who can't do that without reservations. God makes no reservations when it comes to love. God loves every living thing down to every single blade of grass cause he knows every living thing parishes. Imagine all the grief of grieving every living thing. To know of love, is to know of God. Who doesn't want to be loved or has never been loved by anyone? No one loves no one. The Bible says to keep your faith in the closet, pray in secret and God will reward you openly. He may not bless you by building you a church empire or making you rich but he blesses you by changing your life. If you trust in Him it's always for the good but don't deny having faith when asked about it by others. Jesus said something to the extent of; Deny knowing me in front of others and I'll deny knowing you in front of the Father. I'm not looking for praise, I'm just stating what I know, from what I've read and admitting I know of God. An try to live by example not by words. Its one thing to say you love someone then actually love them. What does creating and spreading bigotry or garnering material wealth in God's name have anything to do with loving others? Maybe God blessed you, in such a manner, in order to show others what not to be?
alisdaire_ocaoimphThere are Christians and then there are Christians.lmao. the sad thing are those that claim their christanity over the words of whom established this new form of Judaism...i always wondered why Christ's deciples had to go to places Paul preached to charge Paul's teaching. No matter..we see the power of the church from its very beginnings onward...even today in the evangelists preaching over the TV...promising healing and selling holy spring water...for donations..it power and money game
