What is the leading cause of “stagna-spirit” (spiritual stagnation)?

 

How can we avoid being a religion and be about the things of God?

 

You study the Scriptures diligently because you think that in them you have eternal life. These are the very Scriptures that testify about me, yet you refuse to come to me to have life. “I do not accept glory from human beings, but I know you. I know that you do not have the love of God in your hearts.” – John 5:39-42

 

We have to prove God was on our side and He is more in agreement with me than you so we study day and night to prove how right we are and meanwhile people in pain who are already living in Hell on earth look at religious Christians and think what?

 

Any thoughts? Any ideas what most people think of churchy religiosity that doesn’t do anything but prove it-self wrong?

 

God Is Love” and in case you missed it He gives all of two camel turds in a bucket for all the rightness and wrongness of whatever argument you can slap up here.

 

“But doctrine must be proved!” Oops another example of a “but (hole)” saint! In case anyone missed it chances are someone they know will attempt suicide. What is the value of doctrine when millions of people are hurting right now? Most of these hurting souls will never darken the door of a church and I can’t really blame them as most churches are more about proving rightness than Loving!

 

If you haven’t gotten what I am trying to say here in each and every message let me try to capsulize it:

ALL that matters is to – Believe, Love and Love!!

 

Believe in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, Love God and Love one another!

 

Here is a meditation for you. Take several deep breaths and try to relax. With every exhalation let Him take your stress. Gently close your eyes and get a picture of the cross- this is the ultimate symbol of Love. See it touch it get a real good feel for it and as you do:

 

Breathe in and say:

Abba let my ego

 

Breathe out and say:

Die

 

Practice this until you would rather Love and be proved wrong then create anger and be right!

 

Don’t Worry- Be Grace-Full!

 

God really is simple to understand

    Very nicely put. So many people forget that the Bible is a book about Jesus. It is not Jesus. It supposed to lead you to Jesus. (Your first verse of the post) Peace, and much love from tbe peeps at Clean Slate Fellowship

      Thank you so very much for sharing and the encouragement!
      Yes people forget – they follow laws and rules instead of Jesus – but I am optimistic about Grace Growing!
