    'For now we see through a glass, darkly;
    but then face to face:
    now I know in part;
    but then shall I know even as also I am known.'

    (1 Corinthians 13:12)

    Hello there,

    The thought that first came into my head on reading the OP, was standing side by side before a mirror with my daughter, seeing her as she would see herself, yet realising how different her reflection was in the mirror to what I see when I look at her face to face. It was noticeably very different. We do not see ourselves as others see us. We also do not see ourselves as God sees us, for He sees us 'in Christ' - 'Holy and without blame.'

    'But when that which is perfect is come,
    then that which is in part shall be done away.'

    (1 Corinthians 13:10)

    Praise His Holy Name!

    In Christ Jesus
    Chris

    Hello again,

    Sat on a bus, looking out at the passing scenery, the view is marred by the reflection on the glass of our own faces looking out, especially at dusk, when the light is fading. How like our view of God that can be, can't it? Because our own reflection, the limits of our own understanding, , our own perception of Him, get in the way of our seeing Him as He truly is.

    Praise His Holy Name!

    In Christ Jesus
    Chris

    And you don't believe in other tongues. Your words seem to be saying otherwise!

    The simple reality is your position is not what the Bible teaches.

    God cannot die. God made it clear a man has to die for the sins of man.

    Bible says no greater love than one who is willing to die for another.

    The second person of the Trinity came down from heaven and was incarnated and later ascended to heaven.

    at least everyone else will now know to pay that some more attention i guess.

    I take it you aren't busily building some reply to back up your assertion here, as I've been here almost ten minutes now i think. You think Amadeus is 12 too? Do you have the foggiest idea how ridiculous you sound, man?

    man, a half hour pissed away staring at a corpse in a grave, Bc i don't even know what to say, the words won't even come. And of course it is the children who are paying the price, too, as Scripture makes so clear. All Bc changing your mind is a little uncomfortable in the moment, Jesus

    No friends, either, huh? You are just constitutionally incapable of even reading the Book, aren't you. That Puppy is sealed up tight to you innit. Tbh I do not even hold you accountable CI, i guess i would be running from Scripture like the plague too, in your place. Gee I wonder how we got a 12 year old potus?

    Perhaps not what your Bible teaches you, but if it is what the Holy Spirit teaches me, that's OK!

    So you reject the Bible and only listen to the Holy Spirit.

    Our Gnostic of you.

    The written Bible is the dead flesh of Jesus on the cross prior to his resurrection. Only when it has been consumed by a person and quickened by the Holy Spirit within that person does it become the Living Word of God. Jesus healed no one between His death and His resurrection!

    And that requires biblical study, prayer and listening to the Holy Spirit. Which you do not do.

    You are saying you know better than I what I do or do not do. I do really doubt that. Could it could not be that this is one of those things that you have not yet correctly grasped? I admit the possibility of my shortcomings as I do not know all. Who but God does? If we always knew where we were wrong then we would be unlikely to remain wrong and eventually would be found always [24/7] on the Lord's side.

    Just for your information, every morning I have my private session with God which is never less than 1 hour and reading, study and prayer. Frequently it is much longer than that plus there are additional times with God at other times of each day. I always try to remember to, and most often do, return to the "lowest room" allowing God to start up anew within me and elevate me anew if that is His will. Do I ever miss in this? Certainly which is why I
    also strive to pray not for my will in all things but for His.


    "O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps." Jerem 10:23

    "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
    For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened" Matt 7:7-8

    I fully grasp it and know exactly where you're coming from.

    We need to agree to disagree.
