Proverbs 20:6


"Most men will proclaim everyone his own goodness, but a faithful man, who can find?"

It's true, isn't it? People will generally consider themselves good, no matter what they've done.
But God doesn't use the same standard as we do. He doesn't grade on a curve, He doesn't compare you to any other people, He judges by His moral standard. It would be a good thing to know how you stand before the day of Judgment.

The requirement is perfection, so out of all the "good" people out there, how many would consider themselves perfect?

Wow, a whole slew of perfect people?
I don't suppose you'd want to take a litte test (again) to see if that's true?

Re: Proverbs 20:6


blah blah!
I don't need 1st millenium BCE Near Eastern mythology tests to prove anything to me, my life is enough evidence that I am a good person and so are the members of my family.

Re: Proverbs 20:6


Well, you see........I know I'm not perfect (and I'd not like to live in the dream world of thinking I am), been times in my life I am rather ashamed of, been times over the last 50 plus years that I have done harm to others, some unwittingly, some on purpose, been times when I went against my own better judgment..........but I'm also not worried about it......as everything will be sorted out in the end.....one way or another. If there is a Heaven or Hell......I'll be going one way or the other (and I shall find friends in BOTH places). If not, I shall be some awesome fertilizer for the Sierra Nevada mountains.... emoticon

Re: Proverbs 20:6


Jesus came for those who were imperfect, Queeny! He didn't come for those who consider themselves to be perfect, He came for those who know that they're not.
  
This is stuff that needs to be sorted out on this side, you won't have the chance to change your mind afterwards. I'd like to see ya on the other side. emoticon

Re: Proverbs 20:6


Well Mel.....I'll be who I am till the end and take my judgment or become fertilizer, and if I am deemed 'good enough' for your Lord, then you and I will see each other again.
As for now......I try to do the best I can, for all those I can, for as long as I can... emoticon

Re: Proverbs 20:6


Just like I'm not going to buy lottery tickets on the off chance that I might just win a prize, I'm also not going to take a chance on a lottery that some myth created by people who were barely able to read and write and who stole ideas from their neighbors is going to determine my life.
I live the best life I can with what I have and if I'm going to burn in eternal hellfire, it will happen anyway when I'm cremated and I'll be dead.
