John is not scripture. Conversation.

[Response to a man who replied with John 3.18 to 3 verses in the 3 Gospels where Jesus answers the question “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”]
 
ok, you started this by saying Jesus in the 3 Gospels is wrong. You posted a verse about faith only after I posted Jesus’ answer to the “what must I do to inherit eternal life”, which he answered 3 times and in each time he lists THE LAW, Keeping the commandments, and selling all your goods and giving to the poor.
 
In the three Gospels salvation is never ever said to come by grace. Faith isn’t even mentioned. Although when it is used when referring to physical healing.
 
Every time Jesus is asked he answered by telling them things THEY MUST DO.
 
He also repeatedly tells people THEY MUST FORGIVE or they wont be forgiven.
 
In Matthew 25 the people who are allowed in DID things/works, the people who were not allowed in DID NOT DO things/works.
 
He also says those who do not keep the law [ “practice lawlessness”]will not enter, “depart from me ye that practice lawlessness”.
 
In John is all about believing and faith. With Paul it is Grace. The irony is Paul makes a list of people who wont go to heaven and in this list he names people who have BROKEN CERTAIN LAWS. But I thought “we were not under the law”?
 
And Christians will say “we are not under the law”, and in the next breath say, “such and such type of sinner is going to hell”.
 
Acts has three commandments that people must keep. Oddly no Christian Dive ever known cares about those commandments. Its also odd “do not murder” wasn’t one of them.
 
John has a 3 year ministry Jesus in the three Gospels have a one year.
John says John the Baptist is not Elijah, Jesus in the three Gospels says he is Elijah
John says no one has ever seen God, the True scriptures are full of people seeing God
The Jesus in John has a huge ego. The True Jesus says he isn’t even good. “Why do you call me good? For there is ONE who is good, that is God”. – Jesus
In John Jesus says he is “the light of the world”, the True Jesus says “You are the light of the world”.
In John the resurrected Jesus says not to touch him, the True Jesus lets people hold him by the feet.
In John Jesus says he will raise the temple in three days, in the three Gospels this line was made up by the pharisees. It says in the text they made it up.
 
Besides that and many more, the whole story is different. The day of death is different. The way of salvation is different. The Jesus in John seems to voice alot of Philo’s theology. Philo was very famous then and died in about the same year Jesus died.

Religious people worldwide do little more than adopt the Canon of scripture, and the doctrines of the nearest, most popular, or the first religion they really looked into. People in Utah swear Joseph Smith is a prophet. People in Arkansas say the same people are a cult. Both groups of people adopted their proximity faith. By adopting their proximity faith they are actually putting their faith in men, not God.
 
Scripture cannot contradict scripture. And no one can contradict the Torah and Jesus in the three Gospels.

How to have the Eyes of God using the internet and the Mind

  God sees everything. It is impossible to see everything God sees. However, in order to be more inline with truth, you must try to see as God sees.

  Human beings are naturally ignorant. As we age we acquire experience and knowledge and our opinions are more mature, more refined, and more empathetic.

  With the internet available the Disciples can see the horrible things the police and paramedics see. You can go to BESTGORE.COM and see what suicide and torture look like. Along with seeing these thing you should look up how often these things happen. Then close your eyes and see the world at any moment and you can see what’s happening at any one time.

   Look up symphonies, and couples breaking up, and the stories of soldiers and orphans and a baby being aborted and nurses and doctors without borders. You can watch any human activity online and the statistics at how often these happen.

  But this is only the shallow part of the Eyes of God. You must also imagine the pain a baby goes through during an abortion. The emptiness of a dad who had no say in his daughter’s right to life. Imagine the depression he goes through as he hangs himself months later.

  Also imagine the joy of new parents. The joy of an orphan’s first CHRISTmas in his new forever home. The joy of a son when they doctor says his father’s cancer is no longer traceable in tests. 

  In short, every human interaction. Imagine and watch it all. Then close your eyes and see as best you can what God sees.

  This is what The Eyes of God is.

  Its something some Disciple’s practice. There is no commandment to do so, and the reader is no better or worse if he does or doesn’t do it. This is just me sharing something I find enlightening and helpful when is comes to having empathy with people who are going through something I never have gone though. If I have see what they have seen and tried to imagine the pain in a meditative state, then I’ll be close to having true empathy than if I was completely ignorant.

Who is ‘Israel’?

   In 2020 the world is full of people attempting to elevate themselves and their race by claiming to be the True Israel. The level of scriptural ignorance among people in general is almost as criminal as people teaching their own ignorance and preying on the more ignorant people.

They all believe ‘Israel’ is a race of people connected by being a descendant of Abraham and Jacob, Jacob being renamed Israel by God.

John the Baptist, upon seeing the Pharisees approaching said this right away:

Matthew 3:7 KJV
But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?

Matthew 3:8 KJV
Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:

Matthew 3:9 KJV
And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.

Matthew 3:10 KJV
And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

    John is clear your ancestry matters not. God wants repentance. 

 

The Law tells us who is Israel and who Isn’t. The law pertains to both the ‘stranger’ [GER = CONVERT] and those already in Israel:

Exodus 12:49 KJV
One law shall be to him that is homeborn, and unto the stranger that sojourneth among you.

Numbers 15:16 KJV
One law and one manner shall be for you, and for the stranger that sojourneth with you.

 

In addition Jesus makes it clear who is his family. That is, who is Israel:

Matthew 12:46 KJV
While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him.

Matthew 12:47 KJV
Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee.

Matthew 12:48 KJV
But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren?

Matthew 12:49 KJV
And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!

Matthew 12:50 KJV
For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.

 

Finally, in the law, if a person violates the law, his “soul” would be “cut off” from Israel:

Matthew 12:46 KJV
While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him.

Matthew 12:47 KJV
Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee.

Matthew 12:48 KJV
But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren?

Matthew 12:49 KJV
And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!

Matthew 12:50 KJV
For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.

So when Jesus said he came here first for Israel, He did not mean the Jewish People, or any other race. He meant people who did the will of God. The Temple had been entrusted into the care of the Levites, but their handling of the Temple had caused those seeking to do the will of God to scatter. Jesus replaced their authority.

  Today all Disciples of Jesus are in His family, we are Israel.

Christians in Lawlessness

190420-united-methodist-church-lgbtq-ew-500p_d950fe353cceab90d0ff06ece67e2979.fit-2000w

Following Paul, and the destruction of the Law, leads to this....the celebration of sin that should be punished by death.

Matthew 7:21-23 NKJV - 21 "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 "Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?' 23 "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!'

Yahweh never expected us to keep the wonderful law perfectly

Luke 1:6 KJV
And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.


Christians often say “if you break one law you’ve broken all of them”. They get this from one of the added texts.


And I said previously that God never intended you to be perfect, its not possible for the simple fact that it takes years and years to know all the commandments by heart and to keep them.


The verse above says Elisabeth and Zacharias kept the law “blameless”. Does this mean they never broke one commandment in their whole lives? No, that’s absurd. It can’t mean that. IF it means that then the idea that “only Jesus could keep the law perfectly” wouldn’t apply.


It LIKELY means [im not positive, i could be wrong] that they were faithful to God and practiced the law always.  

As far as eternal life is concerned when Jesus tells the rich man the commandments to keep….it sounds like he is saying “these are the ones you must keep”. He could have mentioned many other verses, but he focused on these.

Matthew 19:16-19 KJV
And, behold, one came and said unto him, “Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?”
And he said unto him, “Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.”
He saith unto him, “Which?” Jesus said,”Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness,
Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.”


The negative light Christians view the law in is very sad because the law is so wonderful. They see the law through the book of Romans and Galatians and not through the eyes of God.  

It shouldn’t be “who has to keep the law?”, it should be looked upon as a privilege. For if we believe the creator of all things had Moses pen his instructions for life in a book, then we must believe these ordinances and commandments are wonderful in every way.

I’m not referring to the sacrificial commandments since the temple is not here, and Jesus may have replaced that system. Although one as to wonder why in prophecy the Messiah is bringing a sin offering to the temple. 

And Jesus never said “I will die on the cross and it will replace the sacrificial offerings forever”. But obviously he does say things that indicate his blood is a new covenant and that it was being shed for us.

So in what way did Elisabeth keep the law “Blameless”?

A: kept every law perfect?

B: Was faithful to the commandments practicing them as best she could as she grew up and learned about them. [for we dont come out of the womb with all the laws in our minds]

Letter to WashPost on their Illegal Immigrant Crime reporting

     Mr. Ingraham,

I read your article on criminal alien crime.

I would like to know why you focus the attention of the discussion on the comparison between undocumented persons and native born crime data. And you cite a report that focusses on just Texas which is misleading.

The Government Accounting Office’s 2018 report [ https://www.gao.gov/assets/700/693162.pdf ] says from 2011-2016 criminal aliens:

  • Murdered 6,000
  • Kidnappings 5,600
  • Terrorism arrests 400
  • 13,500 Rapes and Sex Offenses
  • 108,400 Assaults
  • 44,900 Burglaries
  • 336,600 Drug arrests
  • 400 Arsons including a National Forest

I don’t understand why you and many others who write for the Washington Post never mention these victims. The Washington Post has been very supportive of the #MeToo movement. So why would they not care about the 13,500 rape and sex offense victims from 2011-2016?

That is 6 years of data, which is 2190 days.

That’s 6 women who are raped or offended sexually every day.

That’s 2-3 murders a day

That’s 50 assaults a day

That’s 20 Burglaries

That’s 2-3 kidnappings a day

That’s 100s of drug offenses a day.

Why don’t put the focus of your reporting on these victims and their families in the same way you would for any other #MeToo victim?

Please help me to understand.

Peace
