THOUGHTS 4441 TO 4445

MY THOUGHTS 4441
QUESTION 532: DO YOU REALLY BELIEVE THAT THE CHRIST, WHO PREACHED LOVE, COMPASSION, UNDERSTANDING, AND FORGIVENESS, IS GOING TO RETURN WITH AN ARMY OF ANGELS AND DESTROY THE SO-CALLED FORCES OF EVIL? IS THAT NOT A POWER SEEKERS PERCEPTION OF HOW THINGS WILL CHANGE? IS NOT THE APOSTLE THOMAS CORRECT WHEN HE SAYS THAT THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS ALREADY HERE WITHIN YOU? EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4442
EASTER: THE CHRIST HAS RETURNED MANY TIMES WITHIN THE HEARTS OF THOSE WHO TRULY BELIEVE IN THE COMPASSION. THE FORGIVENESS, AND THE UNDERSTANDING OF THE CHRIST. THE CHRIST HAS RETURNED WITHIN THE HEARTS OF THOSE WHO LIVE/HAVE LIVED A LIFE OF COMPASSION, FORGIVENESS, AND UNDERSTANDING REGARDLESS OF THE FAITH THAT THEY BELIEVE IN. YOU CAN SEE EXAMPLES ALL AROUND YOU AND THROUGHOUT HISTORY: ST. FRANCIS OF ASSISI, MAHATMA GANDHI, MOTHER TERESA, THE DALAI LAMA, AMONGST MANY OTHERS. THE CHRIST GAVE EXAMPLES OF THE GOOD SAMARITAN AND THE ROMAN WHO CAME TO ASK THE CHRIST TO HEAL HIS SERVANT; NEITHER OF WHOM WERE OF THE CHRIST’S FAITH. EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4443
EASTER: IT IS NOT THE TITLE OF ‘CHRISTIAN’ THAT MAKES YOU CHRIST-LIKE. HOWEVER, IT IS WHAT IS IN YOUR HEART AND MIND THAT MAKES YOU CHRIST-LIKE. MAHATMA GANDHI, A HINDU, WAS MORE CHRIST-LIKE THEN THE CHRISTIAN RULERS OF HIS WORLD. THE DALAI LAMA, A BUDDHIST, IS MORE CHRIST-LIKE THEN THE SO-CALLED CHRISTIANS OF TODAY’S WORLD. THE MOST CHRIST-LIKE OF MODERN CHRISTIANS WAS MOTHER TERESA WHO LIVED A CHRIST-LIKE LIFE. EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4444
FAITH: TO CLAIM TO BE A CHRISTIAN. A HEBREW, A MUSLIM, A BUDDHIST, A HINDU, OR A MEMBER OF ANY OTHER FAITH DOESN’T MAKE YOU A TRUE MEMBER OF THAT FAITH. WHEN YOU FOLLOW AND LIVE THE PRECEPTS OF THE FAITH YOU CLAIM TO BE A BELIEVER IN, THEN YOU ARE A TRUE MEMBER OF THAT FAITH. THERE ARE MANY CHRISTIANS WHO LIVE IN UNCHRISTIAN LIFE, MANY MUSLIMS WHO LIVE IN UN-ISLAMIC LIFE, MANY BUDDHISTS WHO LIVE A NON-BUDDHISTIC LIFE, MANY HINDUS WHO LIVE A NON-HINDU LIFE, ET CETERA. MANY TALK THE TALK BUT DO NOT WALK THE TALK. YOUR ACTIONS ACTUALLY DEFINE YOU, NOT YOUR WORDS. EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4445
CONFLICT: CONFRONTATIONS MAY LEAD TO TEMPORARY VICTORIES AND A TEMPORARY PEACE: HOWEVER EVENTUALLY CONFLICT WILL CREATE MORE DISSATISFACTION, MORE CONFLICTS, AND MORE DISHARMONY. EmilKoval©2013
