Practical Application of Love IV: The Problem that Kills Love

Posted in Wikinut>Family>Relationships

We are taking our time to ponder on the practical reality of Love in Marriage. My first series which is: The Biblical Love Psychology (I to V) talks about basic Biblical principles which will help us better our relationships. Now this new series is on how we can apply these principles into practical Lives and the last of it will emphasize on the practical application in our relationships/marriages.

Introduction

It is strongly advised, you view the first three series before reading this. If you want to try, then just click on the links below:
1. Love is a personality and not a feeling
2. Love is Blind but the Lover shouldn't be
3. Enjoy the non-quantifiable Agape Love from the Father.

The books of Daniel and revelation in the Bible make it clear that Satan has pulled off his master trick by inventing a counterfeit Christianity based on disobedience to God's law. Not all so-called "Christian" ideas are based on the True word of God or Biblical teachings. For example, here is a professedly Christian book about marriage that says that the male "can be faithful in his mind and heart without being faithful in his body" (McGrath and Gregoire, Africa: Our way to Love and Marriage, London: Geoffrey Chapman, 1977, Page, 20). In other words, a husband is permitted to visit prostitutes or have sex with whomsoever he pleases provided "in his mind and heart" he maintains a mental faithfulness to his wife! This is completely contrary to the words of Jesus, who says, "From within, out of the heart of men, proceed...... adulteries, fornications" (Mark 7:21).

Babylon Doctrine!

It is impossible for a man to commit adultery and at the same time "be faithful in his mind and heart.." Whenever you find a Christian married couple who are unhappily married, you can be sure there is guilt somewhere hiding beneath the surface, or that they have been taught some similar false doctrine, maybe from childhood. They have been poisoned by lies that Satan has told.

There is no poison in the teachings of true Christianity. But there is plenty of Poison in the teachings of "Babylon," which is counterfeit Christianity. "Babylon the great is fallen." says the angel, "and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit." she deals in the "merchandise of....slaves, and souls of men..... And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth" (Revelation 18:2, 12, 13, 24). And by counterfeit Christianity here, we mean doctrines taken from the Bible and twisted either to mock Christianity or in ignorance.

Some comments in reaction to my first series on Biblical Love Psychology proclaimed some doctrines which can never be found in the Bible. Someone claimed Jesus did not die but rather disguised himself to die and went to Pakistan to marry Mary Magdalene who poured expensive Oil on His feet and wiped it with her hair. The same person also claimed the World now is full of wickedness and iniquity in that it would be impossible for Jesus Christ to exhibit the same exact Kind of Love He exhibited earlier (Some thousands of years ago). These are Babylon doctrines and so far as the Bible is concerned, such a Person is not a Christian. Jesus died for our sins and of course even in those days the Bible recorded that the Pharisees time and time again sorted to kill Him. The manner of His death is another confirmation of How much they despised Him. So, how on Earth does the wickedness of Men differ now?

The Christian Angle!

This "poison" that makes people "slaves" and destroys their "souls" is the teaching that God's law cannot be obeyed. Hence some Christians go to church every week and give offerings in order to "pay" for their continued fornication and adultery, and all manner of evil. They are taught that the blood of Christ "covers" their sin while they continue living in sin. They "lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof" (2nd Timothy 3:2-5).

It is like a factory producing guilt. They come and confess their sins, thinking that it is impossible not to sin. They actually believe that God does not expect them to live pure lives, that it is impossible not to commit adultery or fornication. This is the "wine" of false teaching that Babylon teaches. "for all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication" (Revelation 18:3). "Natural affection" would be the pure love of husband and wife in marriage, but Paul says "this know also that in the last days"- this kind of love will be rare (2nd Timothy 3:1). Isn't this true?

So brethren, the admonition here is very simple, the way of the Lord is unique and wonderful. It has time and time again shown us the light and way to be at peace and love each other and make our environment a better place. All we need to do is make it practical in our Lives. Whoever claims is a Christian and does not follow God's ways is actually not a Christian. Let's follow the scriptures and desist from ungodly ways which are detrimental not only to ourselves but as well our relationships/marriages.

Well the Bible is a book open to interpretation. Here is one:

Mary Magdalene is first mentioned as one of the women who accompanied Jesus on his preaching mission and helped to support him financially (Luke 8:1-3). Luke adds that seven demons had been cast out of her, presumably by Jesus (Luke 8:2). Nothing in this passage suggests that there was anything unusual about Mary’s relationship with Jesus, other than the very unusual fact that she was included among Jesus’ retinue. Jewish teachers in Jesus’ day usually didn’t teach women or include them as followers. In his inclusive practice Jesus was virtually unique, and his relationship with Mary and her female counterparts quite counter-cultural.

Simon Peter said to them, “Let Mary leave us, for women are not worthy of Life.” Jesus said, “I myself shall lead her in order to make her male, so that she too may become a living spirit resembling you males. For every woman who will make herself male will enter the Kingdom of Heaven.” (section 114)

Read this: http://www.patheos.com/blogs/markdroberts/series/was-jesus-married-a-careful-look-at-the-real-evidence/

I only quote what I read around and did say it was a supposition as there is no mention post the levitation after leaving the grave on the day we call Easter and then levitating away from the area post meeting his disciples.
Where did he go???

History is such, everything is a suppostion, a biased view of what life of the past may have been...

Good, let me use your words against you. "Well the Bible is a book open to interpretation. Here is one:

Mary Magdalene is first mentioned as one of the women who accompanied Jesus on his preaching mission and helped to support him financially (Luke 8:1-3). Luke adds that seven demons had been cast out of her, presumably by Jesus (Luke 8:2). Nothing in this passage suggests that there was anything unusual about Mary’s relationship with Jesus, other than the very unusual fact that she was included among Jesus’ retinue."

This is brilliant. But your next quote is totally not in the Bible and as a matter of fact, you did not give any Biblical passage where it came from, here it is :"Simon Peter said to them, “Let Mary leave us, for women are not worthy of Life.” Jesus said, “I myself shall lead her in order to make her male, so that she too may become a living spirit resembling you males. For every woman who will make herself male will enter the Kingdom of Heaven.” (section 114)" So, how would you carry a quotation from a blog or another book to justify Bible Truths or claim its in the Bible? You even went further to write "I only quote what I read around......."

So, why should you quote what you read around and try to interpret the Bible (from your first statement): "Well the Bible is a book open to interpretation"?

Do you see where I am coming from? If you are so true to your words and sincere, you strictly take what is from the Bible to scrutinize the Bible. After all, during Paul's time, when he preached to the People of Berea, they went back to the Bible to confirm his teachings " Acts 17:10-11: As soon as it was night, the brothers sent Paul and Silas away to Berea. On arriving there, they went to the Jewish synagogue. 11Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true."
So, if you want to scrutinize the Bible use its verses to do so and not some blog... What you are doing is taking biological principles to scrutinize or check chemical events.. Would that work out?

So far as I am concerned, your Biblical backing has said it all which was backed by the statements following the quotations. As for your other quotes from the blog (I am sorry, I only believe in the Bible and not some blogs), and if you believe in the blog, then I respect your opinion, but please, do not use your beliefs to counteract my own beliefs.. That is where the conflict comes in. You can share what you believe in with me and then its left for me to accept or reject and not insisting that what I believe in is false, or crooked or misleading or contrary to itself as you have time and time again suggested and proclaimed. You still are not making any sense to me, so far as this issue is concerned and I think this is enough Aiyanna.. Stop commenting on my Christian articles.

Yes, none of us was there, but by faith I believe what my Bible tells me. If you believe what your blogs or other scripts tell you, then fine and good and trust me!~~~ I respect that. But for you to take your beliefs and try to counteract my beliefs is totally inappropriate. If you do not believe in the Bible but the blog, then so be it. But do not take another opinion to counteract Biblical Truths. If you think the Bible counteracts itself, then use Biblical truths to prove it. If not, taking another source entails, you do not believe what the Bible says. You can share your beliefs with me (that is understandable and left for me to accept), but do not and I mean, do not take your belief to counteract mine.

No.. None of us were... That I agree... But one thing is~ You started by quoting the Bible, but ended up Quoting somewhere other than the Bible to state this falacy "Simon Peter said to them, “Let Mary leave us, for women are not worthy of Life.” Jesus said, “I myself shall lead her in order to make her male, so that she too may become a living spirit resembling you males. For every woman who will make herself male will enter the Kingdom of Heaven.” (section 114)".

I believe in the Bible and everything that is written in it. Assuming you got that from the Bible, then you can challenge me the way you have been... So since it is not in the Bible, would it be wrong to say, it is not of a Christian Doctrine? Someone else decided to write that for himself. I chose to believe what the Bible said and you chose to believe what the blog said, Since it is from the blog, I suggest you say it is from the blog and do not inculcate it into christianity thereby condemning my Biblical doctrines.

You pointed out this falacy in one of my series on the "BIBLICAL PSYCHOLOGY OF LOVE" Remember that the world "Biblical" is part of what I am discussing in the series, so bringing in what was written in a blog to counter act some of my biblical points is totally out of place. Since it is not written anywhere in the Bible where Jesus said that or married Mary, then it remains a lie (Biblically)... If someone else says that, then it is his own belief which is contrary to what my Bible tells me. So just as I was not there to know (physically, even though I believe by Faith). You too were not there and we both choose what to believe. If I decide to choose the Biblical truth, then I guess you should respect it. As for me, I would not question your belief on the blog, only if you take what is on the blog and make it a biblical fact (then I have a problem with that).... I guess I have explained this very well.

Please Aiyanna, go back and read this blog. Trust me!~~ You didn't, but here is a note from the same blog you recommended..
"Moreover, I have spent time going over the non-canonical material in detail because most Christians (and non-Christians) are unfamiliar with these texts. So when somebody says, “The non-canonical gospels really show that Jesus was married,” most believers don’t know how to respond. Now you have seen the evidence, and you know how to respond. You have more direct exposure to the non-biblical gospels than 99.9% of the population. So when someone states confidently that the non-canonical gospels reveal Jesus’ marriage to Mary, you can respond, “Well, have you ever studied what the non-canonical gospels actually say about Jesus and Mary?” To which the answer will almost always be “No.” To which you can add, “You know, I’ve actually looked at this evidence, and there is nothing there. Mary appears rarely in the non-canonical gospels, and when she does appear, it’s usually as a close disciple of Jesus, and sometimes as one who reveals special knowledge that Jesus revealed first to her. That’s it.”

Another reason I have taken time on this issue is that most proponents of the marriage of Jesus thesis have an agenda. They are trying to strip Jesus of his uniqueness, and especially his deity. They want a Jesus who was a mere human being, one with spiritual insight, but otherwise ordinary. The supposed marriage of Jesus is taken by many to be proof that he really wasn’t God in the flesh, but only a mortal man.

Along with Christians throughout the ages, I believe that Jesus was fully God and fully human. To be sure I can’t fully comprehend or explain this mystery, but I believe it nevertheless. My faith in the unique nature of Jesus doesn’t demand that he was single, ironically enough. Jesus could have married and maintained his sinless, human-divine nature. But we have no evidence to suggest that he did this. We can speculate about the reasons. I imagine that Jesus realized his unique calling was incompatible with marriage and family life. But I don’t know this for a fact."

Please do your best possible to always read ALL information in a piece and most importantly, ASSIMILATE what you have read. Once again read the WHOLE of the blog, cos it seems you selectively believe some stuffs in it and neglected some. Finally, it was a perfect example of a personal idea being expressed from some observation or facts placed by an INDIVIDUAL. So, what you do here on my article page is taking the observation of an indivudal to try and make factual conclusions, as you are already believing in the Jesus-Mary Marriage (In Pakistan)!
