Murderers And Thieves

7 Dec

December 7, 2016

I thought about the leather and fur industry. Let’s say for example, some people are walking down a road, and they come upon some other people wearing nice coats. If the evil people said, Hey, we want your coats! and killed those people just so they could take their coats, do you think that would be righteous?

I thought about some people who live lives of suffering and hardship, and yet they are still loyal to Jesus, even though their lives are difficult. I realized if people are doing something for God, God will certainly pay them back. I understand this means that God will “pay them back in kind”, for whatever it is that they do. For those people struggling, it may give them some peace to realize that whatever they do for Jesus, He will certainly repay them.

I mentioned how in 2003 when  i was praying, God asked me to stop drinking, without saying any words. It was never said, it was just understood. Now i realize God has done the same thing with many people, by asking them to not eat flesh, without saying a word. I understood when God asked me to stop drinking, and so i think some people will also understand God when God asks them something as well.

I mentioned that men end up in hell because men have no compassion, not because God doesn’t. I realize now that everything in Scripture is all about compassion. It becomes very clear. Such as the first two greatest commandments – Love God and your neighbors. If people don’t have love for God and their neighbors, they have no compassion. If people don’t have compassion for animals, they have no compassion. If people do have compassion for animals and they still eat flesh, then those people are hiding their compassion for the dead animals they are eating. This is what Jesus talks about in the parable about the talents. The talents could represent compassion. Two of the servants showed a profit on the compassion given to them, each one according to his own ability. They each did the best they could. But the evil servant hid his compassion, and when the master returned, the man had nothing to show for the talent given him. He called his master wicked, and did wicked things. So his master said give the compassion for that wicked servant to the servant who had the most compassion, and throw that wicked servant with no compassion out of here.

St. Matthew Chapter 25

14 ¶ For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling
into a far country, who called his own servants, and
delivered unto them his goods.
15 And unto one he gave five talents, to another two,
and to another one; to every man according to his
several ability; and straightway took his journey.
16 Then he that had received the five talents went
and traded with the same, and made them other five
talents.
17 And likewise he that had received two, he also
gained other two.
18 But he that had received one went and digged in
the earth, and hid his lord’s money.
19 After a long time the lord of those servants
cometh, and reckoneth with them.
20 And so he that had received five talents came and
brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou
deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have
gained beside them five talents more.
21 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and
faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few
things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter
thou into the joy of thy lord.
22 He also that had received two talents came and
said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents:
behold, I have gained two other talents beside them.
23 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and
faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few
things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter
thou into the joy of thy lord.
24 Then he which had received the one talent came
and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard
man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and
gathering where thou hast not strawed:
25 And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in
the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.
26 His lord answered and said unto him, Thou
wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap
where I sowed not, and gather where I have not
strawed:
27 Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money
to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should
have received mine own with usury.
28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give it
unto him which hath ten talents.
29 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and
he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not
shall be taken away even that which he hath.
30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer
darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of
teeth.
