“For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
Does anyone remember when that was the famous verse of Christianity?
Now the famous one..
“Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. ” Matthew 7:1-2
I wonder why the switch?
I have heard it quoted 2 ways.
The first is when someone needs to justify a behavior. A behavior they feel is wrong and do not want to be remined that it is wrong. so they say, ” judge not…”.
The second is when a person is expressing their personal views on a matter.If their personal view is NOT ” allow all things, all things are good, and right everyone is right” Sometimes people panic and think the individual is judgmental and so they say, “judge not…”
There are many more examples,none fresh on my mind. Any thoughts on that?
Next Word FEAR
Sometimes the things we fear are not real, nothing concrete. (Unless its a snake) The things you fear should be evaluated often. Do not let those things consume you or hold you back.
The Him- God, the All- things that are not truth you should forsake.
These are random words that came to mind for that letter F on the A to Z challenge.
What are your thoughts on Faith and Fear?
