Bible Study: Enjoy your lesson!  

   Remember what Jesus said: 'Goats on the left, sheep on the right' (Matthew 25:33).


Jesus also told Peter that if he wanted to catch fish do it from the right side of the boat.   They did and filled the boat with fish.
John 21:6 (NIV) ... He said, "Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some." When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish."
 I have often wondered why it is that Conservatives are called the "right” and Liberals are called the "left".
  By chance I stumbled upon this verse in the Bible:   Ecclesiastes 10:2 (NIV) - "The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left."
Thus sayeth the Lord.   Amen.
  It surely can't get any simpler than that.    Spelling Lesson:
The last four letters in American...  I Can
The last four letters in Republican.... I Can
The last four letters in Democrats..... Rats    End of lesson   ...

Test to follow on November 6, 2016.


  Remember, November 2016 is to be set aside as rodent removal month.     Please share this Bible Lesson with all your friends and email buddies to help achieve that goal.

JESUS DID THE ORGANIZING for His church and whenever men go beyond that pattern (found only in the New Testament of Jesus Christ) they do so at their own peril. One needs to only read the New Testament to see the problem that has been created over the last two centuries within the churches.

Gotta love it when "religious" folks attempt to defend their beliefs and the Bible but usually end up disgracing both. Perfect example here.

Defense of belief is not needed, all one needs is faith.

Sadly, it is those who scream the loudest about what good Christians they are and are the first to quote scripture to support their beliefs and actions, that seem to have the weakest faith.  they feel so threatened by anyone not believing exactly what they believe because their faith is so tenuous that anything that may cause them to question even the tiniest facet would bring their whole house of cards down.  
I respect and enjoy being around Christians who live good lives, love everyone regardless, and are examples of Christs love.  You can tell they are Christians without them having to tell you every other second to prove how good of Christians they are.  They use quotes from the Bible to teach not judge.  They offer love and support to those who they believe have fallen from God, not ridicule and condemnation.  They acknowledge themselves as sinners and welcome people into the flock despite their sins rather than do all they can to drive wedges between themselves and those they consider to be worse sinners or believers of the wrong flavor of Christianity.
"Christians" like Breeze are easy to see and drive people away from the faith.  Christ like Christians are subtle and work their way into your heart and bring you closer to God even if you don't believe the same things.  They are the kindly Grandmother you long to be around.  Not the raging drunken Father who beats you for your own good to make you a better person.

Honestly, what should we expect from two of these "loved by Christ" christians? One who justified the genocide of Native Americans by saying that's the only way to deal with "savages" and another who says that Jesus would bring the hot dogs for a wienie roast as a family's house burns down.

Still scratching my head wondering what version of the bible some of these people have read.

Excellent post!

My wife attempted to bring me back to a church setting a few years back. Some really good people, but too many with phobias and racist backgrounds. Many church organizations become private exclusive clubs that evolve their own expedient set of "christian" rules and behavior.

Those who claim faith is all one needs(and not virtuous behavior) remind me of the UfOlogy crowd. They, too, believe in some tantalizing unseen force, and all too often fail in acting responsibly towards their fellow man.

When Breeze and other political pimps prostitute the Bible and Jesus for personal agendas they unfortunately
do great disservice to the real Christian community.
