Little Angel Cindy Knows, Do You Know?

"The Apostle Paul told Timothy, 'Don't have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels' (2 Timothy 2:23, NIV). Titus 3:9 says, 'But avoid foolish controversies and genealogies and arguments and quarrels about the law, because these are unprofitable and useless.' Are all arguments 'foolish and stupid'? No, not all. We must all take a stand on key doctrines of faith, especially where salvation is concerned. However, we must never forsake the witness we present." (Don't Be A Stumbling Block)

 
 

Because Of The Inclination Of Christians To Hang Out With Each Other, There Is A Tendency For Them To Shine Their Armor And Fight With Each Other i.e., The Non Essentials. This Results In  Minoring On The Major Points And Leaving Their Backsides Exposed To Those That Are Supposed To Be The Biggest Enemies Of The Gospel.

Unlike The Previous Chart Which Emphasizes The Process And That Among Christians, One Side Shouldn't Be A Exclusive Of The Other Side, But With This Chart Here, Christians Or 'False Brethren' Emphasizing The Left Side Will Lead To The Subverting The Other. Minor Points Should Get The Least Of Our Energy While The Major Points Should Get The Major Share Of Our Energy And Time. 

Only When These 'Christians' See For Themselves What Happens When They Strain At Gnats, Embrace Shadows, And Major On The Minors Will They Begin To Focus On What Really Matters.

Minors-

Half Of The Story

Majors-

The Rrrrrrrest Of The Story

if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him..."

I've Seen Folks Go Over The Edge On This Subject, And Obsess On It For Over Thirty Years Or More, So I Avoid Majoring On This Minor And Just Encourage Christians To Act Like The New Creations That They Already Are. (2 Cor. 5:16-19)


"But, beloved, we are persuaded better things of you, and things that accompany salvation, though we thus speak. 10 For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labor of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister." (Hebrews 6:9)

All The Things Paul Was Persaded Of (Romans 4:21; 8:38; 14:5,14; Philip. 1:6; 2 Tim. 1:12; Heb. 6:9)

Timing Of The Rapture: 

I've Seen Christians That Disagree On The Timing Of The Rapture, Siding With Those That Deny The Trinity But Agree With Them On The Timing Of The Rapture, Against True Christians.

 Instead Be Ready At All Times:

"As long as we follow Jesus' admonitions to be prepared for the last days and guarded against the deception of Antichrist, then it's not terribly important which rapture view you find most convincing.  Our feelings are that we should all be prepared to be taken to heaven without notice, yet be strong enough to endure tribulation without letting our faith falter."



 
 

Eeny, Meeny, Miny No!, To One Translation Must I Go


Due To This Overemphasis, I Sometimes Wonder Whether These 'Christians' Would Side With A Jewish Counter Missionary Against A Christian, Simply Because The Pharisees Stick With The Masoretic Text, From Which The KJV Comes From.

 "By The Mouth Of Two Or Three Witnesses A Word Shall Be Established." (Old And New Testament)

Masoretic Text, Septuagint, Dead Sea Scrolls

 

When Jewish Counter Missionaries Attack: People Of The Book

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. ...11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: ...14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth....18 No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him." (John 1)

 


 
Rock And Roll Is Of The Devil, Even Christian Rock And Roll. These Folks Usually Are Of The Same Ilk Of The Ones Above. While They Are Majoring On This Point...

 

They Don't Have The Time, Desire Or Energy To Defend The Faith Against Those That Would Distort The Person And Work Of The Rock And Roll Of Ages.

"Why Should The Devil Have All The Good Music" (Larry Norman)

 

"I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.

10 Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life." (Revelation 2:9,10)

This Is Also Replacement Theology.

These Jewish Wannabes May Also Go Through Jacob's Trouble As Well.(Jerry 30:7) They Want The Blesssings Of Being A Jew, They Might Get The Other Stuff As Well. In The 'Tribulation' Here It Would Make Sense That God Is Casting The Ones That Are Disobedient Into Prison i.e., The Jewish Wannabes Rather Than The Obedient Ones.

Confirmed Next Door

"Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

One Cannot Be A Jewish Wannabe And Not Get The Good And Bad Of What God Promises To Israel And To A Disobedient Israel.

Are You Earthbound Or Heaven Bound?

When Christians Believe The Rrrrrrest Of The Story:

 

To The Christian Wannabes He Says:

 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth." (Revelation 3:9,10)

The Promise To Those Who 'Kept The Word Of My Patience' Are Promised To Be Kept 'From The Hour Of Temptation', Which Phonetically In Greek Is 'Tace Horos Tou Payrosmoo' Both 'Tace' And 'Tou' Are Definite Articles, So In Other Words Kept From 'The Hour Of The Trial.'

And Kept From, In Greek Is Ek, Which Really Is Out Of The Hour Of The Trial, And So It Is Not A Coincidence That Jewish Wannabes Tend To Be Post Tribbers, But Hey, I've Seen Many Very Commited To Going Through Jacob's Trouble, So Maybe That Is Their Place In The Big Plan.

There Was A Jewish Wannabe In One Of My Egroups That Was Vegetarian, And That Wasn't the Bad Part. The Bad Part Was That When Obsessing About Meat He Would Use The Word 'Filthy' Excessively To Describe Meat As If He Wanted Everyone To Develop A Bad Response To Meat.

Now If He Didn't Want To Eat Meat That Was His Business, (Romans 14:20,21), But All This Talk Of Seasoned Meat Was Making Me Hungry.

This Is What This 'Brother'? Was Missing In All This Majoring On The Minors. 

"Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; 3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. 4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: 5 For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.6 If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained." (1 Tim. 4)

Sabbath Observance:

I Have Talked To Some That Believe That Not Observing The Sabbath In The End Will Be Part Of The Mark Of The Beast Who 'Changes Times And Seasons'

 Now That Time Is Neither Here Nor Now, And Next Door Is Where We Should Be.

"For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all." (James 2)

"Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. 20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin." (Romans 3)

"Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. 9 For in him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. 10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: ...16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: 17 Which are a shadow

of things to come;

but the body is of Christ." (Colossians 2)

I am remembering a story that the Late Walter Martin (Cult Expert) told. It was a long time ago so pardon the loose paraphrase.

He told of a man who hadn't seen his sweetheart in quite some time. He approaches the plane where she is to step off and when she steps off the plane he comes running toward her.
Finally, getting to where she is he falls down on the ground and starts embracing her shadow.
This is a silly story meant to show the stupidity of those that embrace the shadow when the Person is here. Only When 'Christians' Get Bloody And Bruised Noses From Such Acts Will They Begin To Come To Their Senses.
 

What is the purpose of the shadow, except to let us know the person is nearby.

 

What Happens When 'Christians' Strain At Gnats, Embrace Shadows, And Major On The Minors?

They Wink Their Eyes At Those That Preach Another Jesus, Gospel (2 Cor. 11) Swallow Camels (Matthew 23), Bruise And Bloody Their Noses, And The Major Points Of The Gospel Get Neglected While The Cults Have A Heyday On The General Population That Is Fed A Constant Diet Of Misinformation.

While 'Christians' Are Practicing Jewish Wannebeism (Rev. 2:7-10; 3:7-10), Denying The Trinity And Actually Calling Me A False Teacher Here, The Real Jews Are Wreeking Havok And Presenting Bald Face Lies About Christ And The Gospel.

Don't Believe Me Go Here.

I Also Refute Part Of What They Are Saying Here.

And Here, But This Job Is Way Too Big For One Person And Requires The Body Of Christ And When You Get To This Counter Missionary Site, Note How Many Egroups And Adherents They Have Right At Their Site, Run By Rabbis.

Also Check Out An Atheist Infidel Site Meant To Overwhelm Christians With Their Misrepresentations Here.

Partly Refuted Here.

"Some Christians judge others by the Bible translation they use. Some judge congregations based on whether the ladies wear pants or dresses. Some Christians love a strict liturgy, and look down condescendingly on those who raise their hands toward heaven in church. Baptism required for salvation? Women wearing makeup? King James or NIV? Electric guitars or pipe organs? Pre-trib, mid-trib, or post-trib rapture? There are a variety of positions taken on these issues, all by born again Christians. Sometimes the embers of disagreement are fanned into the flames of division, and we must stop to ask ourselves, "Is this argument central to the issue of salvation, or is this a foolish and needlessly divisive controversy?" We need to ask this question before we become militant in our approach to the issue. Irrespective of the answer, we must never forsake the greatest commandment: to love God first and to love one another as ourselves." (Don't Be A Stumbling Block)

Were So Occupied With Straining At Gnats And Chasing Shadows That You Got Broadsided By A Camel. (Matthew 23) Part 1

Avoid These People:

Avoid Them Here As Well

Mark Those That Major On The Minors And Embrace The Shadow

Here Too.
