BVW!

hello-there

It’s Wednesday, people! ❤

“Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.” ~Proverbs 16:3.

Isn’t it funny how, as humans, we always say “When I grow up…” And we look at people who have no plans as a bad thing? I’m not saying you should be legalistic and say “No plans for the future, missy.” And wag your finger at your much-younger-than-you cousin. However, why do we put so much into the future?

Where am I going to go to college? What if I end up hating my job? What if I never get married? How will I be able to pay for this?

In near future, that’s not necassarily a bda thing. But, if you’re making detailed and precise plans for the next twenty years, there may be a problem. Investing? No big deal. You’re literally putting something into the future. Making a map of your life? One, who has time? And two, why? No one said being spontaneous was bad. And we all know, as Christians, that faith is in fact very good.

Have a little more faith in your life today. ❤ Trust God and let things happen. Let go.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

That’s a really nice verse. I like this segment because I hardly ever read the Bible especially the Old Testament, so it’s nice to see these!

(I am a Christian who believes in the Bible, and I even take a doctrinal class at church, I just sometimes focus on other scriptures. If you’re curious, I’d be happy to explain more.)

Ok, so I’m a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and we believe in more than just the Bible. Like modern day scripture (I mean, Christ didn’t really give commandments about some things in today’s world, because the laws were a bit different back then. Like, if Jesus said something about the Internet…no one would understand that). Twice a year our leaders gather and broadcast their messages for us. And yeah, they use a lot of doctrine from the Scriptures.

Also, we believe in the Book of Mormon(a book about some people who left Jerusalem and the record of their people. That’s kind of where the Native Americans come from imo)
Th Book of Mormon has a lot of good principles and stories of Christ, and the main reason I personally value it a little more than the Bible, is because it hasn’t been translated a lot. Just once. I think things can get lost in translation.

But I mean, it doesn’t have everything that the Bible has, so the Bible is also really nice to have, and I really should read it more often. That being said, I do take a class on the New Testament every morning for this semester.

Also, we believe the King James Version of the Bible to be most correct, though there are definitely truths to all versions.

I hope you can understand all this, and please, feel free to ask questions.

I know about what you’re talking about, actually. I studied it a bit! Espeically on the Book of Mormon. I know all about that from 8th grade. 😀
And I didn’t know that a lot of people thought there was only one good version, but that’s cool. I don’t really hold one more than the other, but I do love the KJV. I do understand it. I think that’s awesome. Thanks for sharing!
I’m a Messianic Jew, (not by race, by religion). Messianic basically means that you believe in the Jewish ways, but you also believe in Jesus Christ/New Testament.

That’s cool!
I mean, there isn’t necessarily “one right Bible” it’s just we think the KJV has been less “watered down” so to speak. Like, how John 3:16 says “only begotten son” whereas others say “only son”-that’s crucial, because we are all sons and daughters of Heavenly Father too, just not begotten of him.

That’s cool! So like, do you practice some of the Mosaic law? (I might be a little off, please don’t be offended or anything, I’m just curious) Like, Passover and that sort of stuff? Because I was explained that Jews were just Christians(for lack of a better word), who didn’t believe their Savior had come yet. So like, am I on the right track?

Ah, I see. I do understand that. I know what you mean. There are certain things that KJV offers that other’s don’t.

Yes, we practice the Mosaic Law! Jews are people who don’t believe/read the New Testament at all. They still go by the Torah, (Mosaic Law). Hebrew Roots/Torah Believers, etc. are people who believe in both and are not Jewish-by race.
Messianic Jews are Jewish people who have switched over to believign Jesus is real, etc. (So, they still aren’t waiting for him!)
We’re Hebrew Roots/Torak Keepers. I used the wrong phrase at first. Haha.

That makes sense to me.

So like, do you guys believe “an eye for an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth”(Old Testament law) or “turn the other cheek” (New Testament law) Or, some mixture of the two? Maybe it depends on the situation? Or maybe I’m just overlooking things🤣. I’m always just a bit fascinated by different religions and their similarities and differences. Like, I’ve found similarities with Catholicism, Protestantism, and Muslims within my own religion.

One of the biggest differences though that I noticed with my own is that we believe that families are eternal. It was shocking to me to find that some Christians think you won’t know your family after you die, but to each his own I guess.

Thank you for sharing all this! It’s really interesting to learn.

We are both Old and New Testament, so it depends on the situation. Of course.
Oh, that’s interesting. I’ve never heard that you won’t know your family. You mean in Heaven, correct? And I love different religions as well.

You as well.

Yeah, in Heaven. Although, I don’t really believe in Hell(as in, a literal place where you sit and are tortured for eternity) Without going into too much detail, there are different Kingdoms, so like, one is with God, but God doesn’t go to the lesser Kingdoms. So like, those people don’t continue to grow like those in the highest Kingdom. I believe most everyone will be happy(even murders, though I’m not sure what I think of that idea😬I mean, I do want everyone to be happy though.

As far as not believing in eternal family, when my mom was growing up, her Christian Sunday School Teacher(they weren’t a member of my church, my mom didn’t find it til later in life) said they would see each other in Heaven, but they wouldn’t know who they were. My grandma died when my mom was really young, so she didn’t like the idea that she’d never recognize her mother again. I just find that idea very sad.

Right, got it. I don’t believe you are eternally tortured in Hell for eternity. Though I think it’s a place. I think you are burned in fire until you die, for eternity. There is no “after life” after that. There are different “types” of people in Heaven. Some will be better based on their works.
Oh, wow. That’s sad. I think you will recognize people from your former life. I don’t think it will be like “Oh, finally someone I know!” but more of a “I know you, you were my family. I love you.” And now we are all family, (in a spiritual way).

For what most people think is Hell, I personally believe that that would be considered Outer Darkness(you basically live with the Devil) I don’t think it’s very happy, but only a very few number of people will be there, so a majority of people don’t have to worry about that.

I pretty much agree with the rest of that though. I feel like our family will be waiting for us once they have passed on, and they’ll kind of give us an orientation of what we will be doing for eternity. And yeah, we are all family.

In my belief, Hell is fire, damnation, and living with the devil. I think a lot of people will actually have to be in Hell, “very few go through the narrow gate.”
Yes, exactly. I think there are also thing we just won’t know until that day comes.
