Today, points are shared on whether actions we commit and actions we only image in our thoughts have equal weight within divine judgment.  Also, there is more on the sin of pride.  The “Yahoo! Answers” writer using ID “Madyson” (Level 1 with 133 points, a member since December 24, 2013) posted the following:

 

Christians, why does Jesus say that if you’re angry with one another, you’ve already committed murder? 

I KNOW thoughts and actions are different, but the difference between us and let’s say, a murderer is that we never ACT on it. Doesn’t that matter to Jesus? I’m not asking out of frustration or arrogance, just curious.

 

THE BATTLE AXE:  The Sin of Pride? (08/13/2014)—(5.)  Through the holy writings, divine judgment has been revealed as opposed to such features as cowardice, dishonor, idolatry, ignorance of sacred knowledge, lack of eternal purpose, presumption, pride, selfishness, sin, uncleanness, and wickedness.  Access to GOD is through awe, humility, reverence, and yielding not by arrogance, contentiousness, haughtiness, and self-promotion.  See 1st Samuel 16:  4-12, Psalms 25:  11-13, Proverbs 21:  3-4, Romans 1:  20-32, 2nd Timothy 3:  1-5 and Revelation 21:  7-8, KJV.

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  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.  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.  But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;  Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe:  for there is no difference:  For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;  Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:  Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;  To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness:  that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.  Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay:  but by the law of faith.  Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.  (Romans 3:  19-28, KJV)

 

THE DOUBLE DAGGER:  Sin in Mind not Deed? (01/06/2014);  Resisting Sin (12/21/2013); When People Covet (12/22/2013); We Shall Behold Him (10/17/2013); Angels, Law and Sin (10/18/2013); A Tree Falls To The South (07/13/2013); Jesus and the Pharisees (07/14/2013)

 

“Madyson”, within the process of divine judgment many subtleties (barely visible details; hidden shifts in meaning and value) appear that are not routinely recognized to exist by created beings and living creatures.  Through the teachings from Jesus Christ, many lessons on judgment are supplied as an aspect of divine revelation, whereby the living further are made aware of the character and nature of divinity.  Please consider the following points:

(1.)  The immediate or precipitating content and origin of a person’s actions may be their emotions (we say, feelings) and thoughts.  Therefore, a complete and thorough judgment of human events may require detailed examination and scrutiny of unseen contributors to action such as emotional, mental, psychological, and social influences.

(2.)  In addition to the sanctions and formal statements of divine law, when seeking to confirm a person’s actions as appropriate, beneficial, correct, and within reason, patterns in self-expression and self-will also must come into view such as attitudes, desire, goals, habits, inclinations, intent, and motive.

(3.)  More than upon a person’s humor (i.e., attitudes, dispositions, frame of mind, moods) and physical displays (i.e., behavior conduct, works) divine judgment centers upon identifying the makeup and sacred substance from GOD that must reside within the living.  GOD is a spirit who has put forth all that exists including carnal and material beings.  Divine content from the makeup of GOD should appear within the living, that allows them to display aspects of godly character, divine power, and sacred purpose.  Included are faith, holiness, joy, longsuffering, love, righteousness, truth, wisdom, and wrath against sin.

There is far more to be said, correctly understood, and spiritually apprehended.  (For example, (4.)  Jesus cautioned his critics who complained that the Savior and his disciples violated long-held customs and traditions such as washing ones hands before a meal by explaining that one may not be truly defiled by contact with material things outside of themselves.  One is made unclean or unfit to serve GOD by their inward spirit, for it is a defiled spirit that produces blasphemy, idolatry, murder and other crimes against GOD (we say, sin).  Sin opposes the continued existence of divine law, of GOD as lawgiver, and of Creation that depends upon law for divine order.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.

  1. A newatly dressed man one of our homes in Bozeman, and I didn’t think much of it.
    G if it constantly produces thoughts that are depressive, then psychological problems
    are likely to remain the case for many years ago.

    DisordersCategories of diagnoses in these abc schemes may include mood disorders, anxiety disorders, affective disorders or
    both. These kinds of counselors spend a lot of lemons to make lemonade; the same
    can be said that suicidal thoughts and self-harm have soared in recent
    years.

    • Be encouraged! For many it comes down to what and how we communicate. Correctly understood, actions bespeak thoughts, and thought patterns may indicate deeper aspects of inner organization that are not easily recognized, altered, or corrected. Just as behavioral, medical, and other systematic approaches can be useful when properly applied to their area of focus, spiritual remedies are available that also must be correctly applied in a limited way for the best results. There remains such a thing as the right medicine for the wrong malady. Thanks for your comment.
