Why the Bible Thumpers Are Wrong.

USE DISCRECION

Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life: You should mind your own business and work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody. 1 Thessalonians 4:11-12 New International Version

I have seen and experienced many good intentioned but wrong minded Christians who try to shove their version of the Bible down people’s throats. As a result they do more to drive unbelievers away from Christ than guide them to Christ. Consequently you are serving Satan rather than serving Christ.

 

I know because that is exactly what happened to me with that Satanic cult Jehovah’s Witnesses and with some people who were recovered alcoholics and drug addicts that became born again Christians. Because of their in your face method they drove me away from reading the Bible, praying or having anything to do with Christianity for many years.

The way that I find to be most productive is to begin with living the Christian life. Then pray that Jehovah arranges for you to encounter someone who is open to receiving Christ’s message.

When they see how you live they will be curious and inquire about why you live a different lifestyle. That is the best opportunity to share the message.

Now of course this includes studying your Bible and carrying it with you every day so that you are prepared.

 

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God ) teach me when and how to use the correct opportunities to share You with those who are ready to hear Your Word.

I sincerely ask this in the name of He who waited thirty years before beginning His ministry Jesus Christ. Amen

 

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

For You, Not Them.

GODS GUIDEBOOK

 

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 New International Version

Too many Bible thumpers search for Bible verses to throw in non believers faces or even at other Christians to condemn them or try to mold them into their way of thinking.

Instead the Bible is an instruction manual for the Christians life more so than the unbelievers.

 

That is why it is best to pray for the Lord to bless you to open your eyes and mind and heart to what He is saying to you before you read your daily Bible reading ( and just like you need to eat physical food every day so too do you need to eat spiritual)and how to put it into practice.

Make no mistake about it, it is important to know Bible verses and their meaning to defend yourself with gracefully and wisely when attacked.

I have used them very effectively numerous times.

Indeed I carry around with me a binder full of verses so that they can be used for reference. Some times instead of a quarrel it ends up being an opportunity to share Jesus with others.

As well, it is beneficial when challenged, to show them where it says that in the Bible.

You should see the look of shock on the agitators face when I pull out my binder full of Bible verses and Christian quotes.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kalel (voice of God) for blessing me with speaking words of wisdom and life that is not only life giving to me but to those who hear Your divine word and are open to receiving its amazing grace giving life. I exalt You in the name of He whose very name gives me life Jesus Christ. Amen                                                                                                        

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day
