How are we to present ourselves before the brethren and God's loved ones. We are all loved by God.

How are we to present ourselves before the brethren and God's loved ones. We are all loved by God.

Brothers and Sisters please do not be a mudslinger. God takes note of all our actions. I know that you are zealous in your belief but don't let it put you in a precarious position.

If Satan who once had a great and lofty position can be displaced any one of us can be displaced also. The Lord our God is a God of peace and will have order in His house.

God has told us that we will know true believers by their fruits and if they display love one to another.

Matthew 7:16
[16] Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

John 13:34,35
[34] A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
[35] By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

Galatians 5:22 - 26
[22] But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
[23] Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law
.
[24] And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
[25] If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
[26] Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.

Notice what is the opposite of the fruits of the spirit:
Galatians 5: 19-21
[19] Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
[20] Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
[21] Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

This is just a little note about witchcraft. Don't look for a witch in a black pointy hat or a wizards costume in the church. In case you think that witchcraft doesn't apply to the modern day church see how God views it. God wants us to be obedient above all. See how he views rebellion or not obeying his words completely. Not just the part that you want to obey.
1 Samuel 15:22,23
[22] And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.
[23] For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.

Acts 20:28 says
[28] Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.
[29] For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
[30] Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them

1 Corinthians 5:11
[11] But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.
[12] For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within?
[13] But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.

To rail (railer) means to condemn or complain bitterly or abusively
To covet means to desire enviously


Proverbs 6:16-19
[16] These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
[17] A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
[18] An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,
[19] A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

Col. 3
[12] Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;
[13] Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
[14] And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.
[15] And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.

Personally regarding forums and discussions, if I cannot have a peaceable, respectful, and loving discussion I will not take part.
