Jesus did not come to condemn the world. He came to save the world.
John 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
I can not believe that Jesus was harsh in his words toward the scribes and the Pharisees — I believe, with all of my heart, that Jesus had tears in His eyes, and sorrow in His heart, when He suggest they were whited sepulchres and dead mens bones.
Matthew 23:27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness.
I cry now for those of you who continually speak prove to others that you are as the scribes and the Pharisees — yes, we know who you are.
Those of us who are followers of Christ Jesus are here not to condemn, but to give life through His Words.
John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
I beg those of you who have condemning attitudes to discontinue your foul and evil responses. Christ Jesus would never have the harshness you profess that He does. You follow Him as if you also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
I think that some have been a little judgemental here, but please, watch what you write. In your statement, you said that Jesus is NOT God, but the Son of God. Such a view is vigorously contradicted by Scripture. If the Word of God is the only thing that will stand, may I be so bold as to ask you, where do you stand? If you believe that Jesus is NOT God, but just his Son, you have taken an enormous step off the Scripture into the quicksand. Now if I'm going have the title of judgemental thrown at me, I don't care. I am NOT propagating what my opinion is, I am merely passing on what is established in Scripture. If someone disagrees with me (I'm talking about the doctrines concerning the Godhead), they are not disagreeing with me, but with the Scripture. Everything I have stated about Jesus can be solidly backed up with Scripture.
I agree with what you have said about Christians. We are not to condemn, but to give life. However, hark, this is what the Scripture says. Joh 12:48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.
If you reject the Scripture, you WILL be judged by the very same Scripture you rejected. I haven't judged anyone here. I have used Scripture to back up the Oneness of God. Now it is up to you to decide whether the Oneness of God is truly of God or not. Based on your decision and follow-through, you will be judged by the Scripture.
You do seem to be pointing the finger at people in this forum, claiming them to be self-righteous and full of hypocrisy and iniquity. Please, you cannot judge the inside of a man. God ALONE has the authority to do such. In the future, please refrain from such comments. They not only damage you and others, but at the moment, from what I have read, you have been far more judgemental than the person to whom you directed those comments. If you do have something, don't just let loose with your thinking, but back it up with the Scripture, and don't be hasty. Analyse the Scripture first. Perhaps your view is erroneous.
