There is no hell except in this world. There is life or death. Life is erasing your choice to give value to all including you. Erasing choice only needs a view, if you see a negative, you will want to change it, it is automaticly, if you really see helpless, your heart will respond in most cases. Mercy is from God.
It is very important never to generalise, generalise in your mind as much as you want, but keep the honesty to recognise the things you blame as a reflection of yourself. Maybe you would not kill, but people when driven in fear and in full capacity become insane, insanity is not guilty when before that there was always a try to reflect back. This is called preparation.
Ignorance will act the same way, and yes, your reaction of love is a warning from god to them, but in the same way you will get a reaction from god because of the fight/judgement you do, which will release it in its right time. Never fake forgiveness, forgiveness is the goal, but before that there is growth and anger. How more you see, how more you carry in the moment, and how less you will have to carry in the future, how more you carry by your own choice, how less others will be able to take from you. This is the Jihad against the self. The dying every day again of the NT.
Israel and its surroundings is one of the most complex situations in the world. Even more strange is that one can wonder if the real israel is maybe partly on the other side of the israeli border hidden in what for us seems Jordanian or Palestinian blood... Iron will fight iron as written in the bible.
yes i agree, but the way is never static, dont generalise the way
the way is salvation and changes all the time.
And every word i say reflects me back to the thing i still have to do.
But then i know i'm at that gate for 2 years, and every day i live in the hope to make it complete. And every day God gives me another day of work. And every day i fail to make it clear. Because it is not my job, but yours.
We do not have to be subject to the old teachings but improve the interpretations of those true teachings of the old by honesty. Desire is good, God only knows desire and fullfillment. But in this world we better try to reach our desires by letting them implode us, by reaching desires in the opposite direction then by taking, but by giving. What gives allready has. What is one has everything so it can give, even before it really has it. Our task is to set free, if we set god free, we set ourselves free.
Ignorance is the god that does not fight for the I, which is a WE,
it will try to change the laws and times. Jesus spoke for the Father as One, Him, Oneness, we will not receive but if another one comes to speak in his own name (not one as seeing you as part of himself), him we would receive. Happening all over history and again.
A real prophet knows responsibility is shared. And your mistakes are his.
Salvation will defend the ones that attack it. Our life is similar to auto-immune diseases, symbols of a bigger truth, we attack ourselves and our own defenses. Everything is symbolic, read God by the issues you bear. When a lesson is learned it will heal.
Religious teachers think sometimes that people get burden because of judgement, better is to say they released judgement and one can wonder if those teachers preaching from their places of safety did allready the same thing. I am talking about the accusitions about Haiti. What those people suffer they contributed to the cross allready. Judgement is the same penny as cross. Thinking people get hell because of wrongdoings makes you exactly that what you accuse, people sometimes receive hell because they have good hearts. What they paid they are free off.
LK 13:1 Now there were some present at that time who told Jesus about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mixed with their sacrifices. 2 Jesus answered, "Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans because they suffered this way? 3 I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish. 4 Or those eighteen who died when the tower in Siloam fell on them--do you think they were more guilty than all the others living in Jerusalem? 5 I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish."
If those alms people give wouldnt sometimes be prevented
to reach their goal, then they could get stuck in their judgements of
false righteousness and the paradox wouldnt have grown in full.
I know it sounds harsh, but this reality is harsh in a way.
Truth can be hard, but those that know it do cry for the justice of that hardness, so it wouldnt be a waste.
Regret does not mean you could have changed it, it means you couldn't, and you accept the pain/'fault' you 'created' by wishing to take it back or away. Which you can't, you can only make it from value, with a reason,
change dark into light. give sense to it.
