Today, focus is on judging others and the requirement for Christian believers that they acknowledge only one true GOD.  Given the operations by divinity to release mankind from certain demands of covenant and sacred law that many began to regard as contradictory, destructive, and oppressive, often those lacking faith from the makeup of GOD now mistakenly think that the purpose of salvation through Jesus Christ is the elimination of all divine law, the annulment of sacred judgment, the approval of self-will as the most correct standard for created beings and living creatures, and the accomplishment of their own private prosperity.  When their errors are made known to them, many feel they are being unfairly and unreasonably attacked and condemned.  Thus, mature believers are cautioned and encouraged by such holy writings as 2nd Thessalonians 3:  1-3, King James Version (KJV):  1 Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you:  2 And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men:  for all men have not faith.  3 But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.  The fighter at “Yahoo! 7 Answers (Australia) using the ID “Trouble Maker” (Level 6 with 14,897 points, a member since May 11, 2013) posted the following:

 

Last time in church the pastor said that “we are worshipping the one true God”?

As if others worshipping a false God? I felt some pain in my heart because of such sectarian attitude, but I guess he was trying to make to congregation happy. What do you think?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROWS:  Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool:  what house will ye build me? saith the Lord:  or what is the place of my rest?  Hath not my hand made all these things?  Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost:  as your fathers did, so do ye.  Which of the prophets have not your fathers persecuted? and they have slain them which shewed before of the coming of the Just One; of whom ye have been now the betrayers and murderers:  Who have received the law by the disposition of angels, and have not kept it.  When they heard these things, they were cut to the heart, and they gnashed on him with their teeth.  But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God,  And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God.  Then they cried out with a loud voice, and stopped their ears, and ran upon him with one accord,  And cast him out of the city, and stoned him:  and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young man’s feet, whose name was Saul.  And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.  And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep.  (Acts 7:  49-60, KJV)

“Trouble Maker”, the goal of most mature Christian believers is to please GOD, who is a spirit, and who requires exclusive devotion (i.e., the acknowledgment of no other gods).  One of the reasons geneticists and those who conduct studies of DNA chains insist upon mathematical precision is that they are dealing with descriptions for objects within our sphere of life that may not include “hands on” and physical measurement.  Much of their work does not include common dimensions (e.g., breadth, depth, height, length, weight); focus will be on calculations, projections, and theoretical measurements, instead.  Similarly, sinners who begin study for their salvation as Christian believers must continuously apply specific tools provided from divinity to acquire fresh spirit content from the makeup of GOD, arrive at sacred knowledge, and to become consistent in responding to sacred practices (we say, sacraments).  Where they understand correctly, it is the goal of every believer is to become one who serves through Jesus Christ, and through whom Christ serves and continues his divine ministry to the hearts, minds, and spirit of others.  Believers, therefore, must operate having certainty, conviction, and mature (some would say, stable or unshakeable) faith.  One’s declaration of faith may have power even when their manner and way of sharing is calm, is quiet, is without fanaticism, and makes no unusual outward display.  The lifestyle and ongoing routine of a believer should always proclaim their faith through actions and words that are plain, unambiguous, and unequivocal.  GOD is no more unrighteous for rejecting sinners than a young woman who refuses to grant a second date to those fellows who, in their time together, were disrespectful, insulting, overeager, and “long in the tooth.”  All who have been created have not been willing to abide as children of GOD.  Consider again how some of these ideas are shared using language from the Bible:

(1.)  Romans 10:  13-17, King James Version (KJV):  13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.  14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?  15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!  16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?  17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

(2.)  Ephesians 4:  4-7, KJV:  4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;  5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,  6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.  7 But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.

There is far more to be said, carefully examined, and spiritually apprehended.  (For example, (3.)  Romans 8:  5-9, KJV:  5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.  6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.  7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God:  for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.  8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.  9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
