A True Christian . . . .
A True Christian does not calls Christianity a religion, but a relationship with God through Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. (John 15:14-15, Hebrews 13:5, John 10:27-28, Proverbs 17:17, Job 5:19, Psalm 37:39)
A True Christian does not do good deeds so that he/she can get to heaven (for through Jesus Christ, he has a place in heaven), but so that you can take care of you fellow man and to love one another. (Romans 3:9-31, John 15:17, Luke 10:25-37, Ephesians 2:8-10)
A True Christian does not condemn others for their sins for God did not sent his son to the world to condemn it, but to save it through him. (John 3:17, Luke 6:37, 1 Peter 2:22)
A True Christian sings, dances, and praises God not so that he/she can impress other people or God, but because he/she loves God and his son. (Matthew 22:37-39)
A True Christian speaks for those who can't speak for themselves. (Proverbs 31:8-9)
A True Christian does not hate people, but sins. For those
Love Each Other
"Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgement on disputable matters.
One man's faith allows him to eat everything, but another man, whose faith is weak, eats only vegetables.
The man who eats everything must not condemn the man who does, for God has accepted him.
Who are you to judge someone else's servant? To his own master he stands or falls. And he will stand, for the Lord is able to make him stand.
One man considers one day more sacred than another; another man considers every day alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind.
He who regards one day as special, does so to the Lord.
He who eats meat, eats to the Lord, for he gives thanks to the Lord; and he who abstains, does so to the Lord and gives thanks to God.
For none of us lives to himself alone and none of us dies to himself alone.
If we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we bel
In funny ways . . . . .Jerry has been a Christian for all of his life.
And a pretty good one too, no doubt.
But there's just one thing he just can't get down:
He tried to look for a girl, but the girls he has met were not exactly the most humble girls around.
So he thinks that there's no girl for him.
But the Lord thinks other wise......
Jerry was just walking down the street for a just a plain old walk.
He starts to pass a corner.
Then, he hears a voice in his head, saying "Turn right at the corner"
This kinda caught Jerry off-guard. But he was wanting to head straight forward, not around the corner.
He closes in on the corner.
Jerry didn't respond.
"Hurry up and turn right Jerry, for I, the Lord, have told you to."
Jerry understood and actually speed-walked around the corner.
And walked into someone with books.
When both Jerry and the person fell to the ground and tried to get back their dignity, Jerry got up and said "I'm so sorry there.
A Loving Friend......
Jake has been a church going child ever since he was a boy.
He loved going there and is a true Christian.
He loved singing in church.
He loved doing what God wants him to do, that is to spread love.
He loved being a Christian.
But there was one thing that he wanted, but didn't get at the time.....
A pleasant face-to-face conversation with Jesus.
He knows that he'll see Jesus in heaven, but he wants to see him before that.......
Jake was just walking down the street to visit his pastor.
He was only suppose to meet him a hour later, but Jake likes to go there a bit earlier (old habit of his).
As he walked down the street by the park, Jake decides to sit on the bench so that he can clear his mind. Then, a homeless man came and sat by Jake. He has ragged clothes and looks like he would be in his thirties.
The man looks at Jake and says "Hello there."
Jake replied "Hello sir."
"Nice day, isn't it?"
"Oh yes it is, sir. The Lord must be happy today
Of Snake Charmers and TreesThere are mathematicians
that calculate the gravitational
pull that tethers us to one another,
teasing sense out of the fabric
of Time and Space like
wizened snake charmers.
I thought them so horribly
unromantic, searching for
logic amidst wildflowers-
reasoning being reason enough
to put one foot in front
of the other each day.
True beauty lay printed
on petals and pages,
where I delved for pearls;
the patterns in the pathos
intriguing me into each
rising of the sun.
I do not remember when
it occurred to me that
without fractals there would
be no trees, nor without love
would people have any reason
to calculate the distances that
separate them from their muses.
