Grace, gratitude, and life as a gift from GOD are topics, today.  Also, there is more on Catholics, Protestants and the Trinity.  A fighter at “Yahoo! Answers Canada” using the ID “INVINCIBLE” (Level 1 with 71 points, a member since September 07, 2014) posted the following:

 

If there’s god? let him be… why i should pray/ or be thankful?

i never asked him to give me anything, even this life, i don’t find any reason for this life…
it’s stupid, god gave me pain/happiness( if he’s there) which i never wanted/need…
and these holy books are asking me to pray him for this…..

 

THE BATTLE AXE:  Catholics, Protestants and The Trinity? (10/12/2014)—(5.)  In the same way those who left Egypt with Moses were blended and interwoven to serve as one nation, from its beginnings the process of expansion and growth for the Church created by Jesus Christ has been one of molding diverse persons to exist as one body through judgment (i.e., the resolution of conflicts and differences through discipline, doctrine, and law).  Many Christian believers dismiss the multiple differences among denominations as the expression of finite human needs, traditions, and the limited understandings of mankind, rather than the putting forth of divine precepts.  Labeled as charismatic or conservatives, such believers promote the old ways, resist change, and seek the primitive yet powerful teachings of the early church that came by prophetic demonstrations and revelation through the imparted Spirit from GOD (we say, the Comforter, the Holy Ghost, the Spirit of Prophecy, the Spirit of Truth).  Jesus had carefully explained that the things he was teaching were all from the Father, and were already documented within the holy writings.  The Holy Spirit was to be welcomed and received as a direct agent, spokesperson, and expression of the will of Jesus Christ.  Called the “promise of the Father” and the “gift of the Spirit,” the agenda of the Spirit would be from the Son, and not from the Spirit himself.  Even so, there would be no contradiction or denial of the things from the Father.  Various historical events, interpretations, and overlays are not to be thought of as being able to erase or obscure the common truth for all believers that we call “the Gospel.”  Far from being dogma taught by brainwashing or propaganda, knowledge of the GODhead is discovered and achieved through common sense and discernment.  Consider again Matthew 7:  13-14 and 21-27; John 7:  17; John 16:  13; Luke 24:  13-27; 1st Corinthians 3:  11-13; Ephesians 2:  8-22; 2nd Timothy 2:  8-17 and 19-26, KJV.

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:  In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.  For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake.  For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.  But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.  We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;  Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;  Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.  For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.  (2nd Corinthians 4:  3-11, KJV)

 

THE DOUBLE DAGGER:  Good Intentions? (07/26/2014); The Bible is All About GOD? (07/27/2014); No Mystery in Lawful Judgment (07/28/2014); Life Choices (12/14/2013); That Mortal Children Die? (12/15/2013); His Burden Is Light? (09/21/2013); All Things Possible? (09/17/2013); Can One Escape? (09/18/2013); Gentiles and the Law? (09/19/2013)

 

“INVINCIBLE”, here are a few ideas important among Christian believers that should also be known among others who are finite, mortal, and not yet invulnerable (like yourself):

(1.)  For believers, commitment, gratitude, love, respect to GOD, and unselfish service are acknowledgments that one has been shown unmerited favor (we say, grace).  Existence and life proceed from a higher process and will than that of created beings and living creatures upon the earth.  It is spurious and unproductive to argue that life experience with its many challenges should only be a product of ones own inner being (e.g., anger, desire, fear, imagination, intellect, lust, passion).  It is a waste of your time, should someone give you permission to always stop the rain (so you will never become soaked again), unless, of course, they also give you authority and power that your will may be done.

(2.)  The holy writings were given to those asking for direction and guidance from GOD.  Believers are not being coerced or forced to do, or speak, or think anything they can not immediately grasp as an aspect of their own spirit and person.  Like your own, the existence of GOD requires nothing of you or anyone else; and GOD does not demand anything from those having nothing to offer.

There is far more to be said, correctly understood, and spiritually apprehended.  (For example, (3.)   Your question may be read as, Why should I want correct knowledge, and, Why can’t I have my own way in a world that does not belong to me?  The process of life can be more than a series of disconnected episodes, or cycles of self-destruction and despair.  Life can be an adventure of exploration and learning; and men can fashion  meaningful goals and purpose.  It remains, however, what you take for granted gets taken away; just as what you take for granted gets to take advantage of you.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
