Goodbye? Maybe

Discussion in 'General Discussions' started by Jesus Freak, Mar 18, 2014.

  1. Goodbye to me? Maybe. If things don't shape up around here with people standing taller than the rest of us when it comes to our faith. One of my friends was posting a prayer request and things got out of control. If things don't stop when it comes to the " I'm better than you " mentality, I'm seriously out of here. I can't stand things the way they've become. I know I said I'd never leave, but I'm fed up. So, I want things to shape up around here. If I leave, you can keep in contact with me through my blog. Thanks for hopefully letting me vent my frustrations.
  2. You have to get past humans and not let it affect you. You'll find it no different anywhere else. Your entire statement is a judgement of those you're accusing. You're placing emotion into text. Paul says he doesn't even judge himself because we don't know enough to judge anything at all.

    1 Corinthians 4:3 (KJV) But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged of you, or of man's judgment: yea, I judge not mine own self.

    Our job here on earth is to reconcile man to God and not bring up their iniquities, Jesus' already paid for them. It's like you taking a dinner receipt with PAID IN FULL stamped on it and giving it to another table to be paid!

    2 Corinthians 5:18-19 (KJV)
    And all things [are] of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

    Ignore those you take offense of and move on. After all churches are full of hypocrites because they're at war with their flesh, unlike the unsaved. (Romans 7)

    God bless with whatever you do :)
  3. I said maybe I will leave. Re read the title again. But for now I'm going to ignore what was said.
  4. Can you post a link to what thread you are referring to? I'm curious to read more on what caused your frustration. Though I have not read what caused your frustration, I will remind you that if you are a Christian you are at war, constantly. Don't forget:

    "For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms."

    Don't let Satan win. Use the trials and tribulations that God has allowed to help yourself grow in perseverance. James 1:2-4
  5. I gave you sound advice, ignore it if you want, the truth doesn't change with it's belief or not.

  6. I know you did. And I'm going to stay as I've said.
  7. If you're having problems with posts, I'd get into the habit of reread what you wrote, because you didn't state that you were staying. In fact you stated "But for now I'm going to ignore what was said." That statement could have applied to my comments, hence my reply to what you said. I see now your "thinking" was to ignore the title of this thread and not my comments. Your quote would have been better received if you had added "...what was said in the thread's title." or "...what was said by me."

    In the absence of visual clues, text become extremely important. I always read my posts two or three times so I catch mistypes and thoughts that didn't translate correctly into the screen :D

  8. I really am not leaving. I was just frustrated about all that's going on. Hopefully the mods will close that thread that made me angry. Anyway... Enjoy having me around.
  9. Excellent advice! Which is also something I need to practice. I type too fast, and sometimes I make mistakes. Always good to double check.
  10. @Abdicate I was trying to have you reread the title. It says Goodbye? Maybe. I'm not leaving at all. I'm going to be around until someone gets me really angry to the point I need to leave.
  11. @Jesus Freak I will... and you can always "unwatch" a thread. I do that when I'm no longer needed :) It's at the top under the Alerts button.

    @Where is the Messiah Glad I could help :)
  12. I never watch threads. It's pointless to me. Maybe I have one or two I watch, but that's it.
  13. lol. No offense, but it's a little bit funny that a forum could possibly get you so angry that it would cause you to leave. It's the internet brother, don't let the little things get to you.

    I'm not. I know it's stupid. I will leave on my own accord. Meaning I will leave if I can't get anything more out of the forums.

  15. I know who you're talking about, so why not take it up with him instead of involving the rest of us? If you have an issue, go to the source. I'm sure you both can find some common ground and work something out.

  16. I have ignored this member so I'm not going to talk to them. End of story. I just had to vent. I'm staying for now.
  17. You should not ignore this member. It appears that you are angry with them, and you should work it out. Make peace with them, and do not have bitterness in your heart, for it will hinder your prayers.

    Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.
  18. Guys, I am saying this for one last time. I am NOT going to leave. I just felt like getting this off my chest. I'm moving on. And I suggest those that know nothing should too. That's just a suggestion. Keep talking about it for all I care. I'm done and gone, now..........
  19. I'm assuming you are responding to me since I was the last to post before you did, but I never said or asked about you leaving. So you did not have to say one last time that you are NOT going to leave my friend.

    If you make a thread, people will respond. I think that's how a forum is suppose to work. Anyways, thanks for sharing! :)
