                                         OPPOSITES

                                        KNOW IT !!!!!!!!

Non believers lump all religions together as the same with the same validity..the same results. NOT TRUE! Christianity is the truth to a                                 peaceful and free  life.


Freedom            or                   

                                         Control


1.Freedom to think                      OR                               People judging

our own beliefs                                                   others by what they think 

JOHN 8; 31-32

Jesus said to to them, ” You are truly my disciples IF you live as I tell you to, and you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.”said Jesus Christ                           

                                              “IF”…our choice


2. Being free to choose               OR                            Blaming others

our own actions and                                                       for our own

reactions to attacks and                                                actions and 

taking full responsibility                                                 reactions.

for everything we think ,say

and do.


MATTHEW 5;39

“But I say: Don’t resist violence! If you are slapped on one cheek, turn the other too.” said Jesus Christ

1 John 3; 18-20

Little children, let us stop just saying we love people; let us really love them, and show it by our actions. then we will know for sure, by our own actions, that we are on God’s side, and our consciences will be clear, even when we stand before the Lord. 


3. Seeking PEACE                        OR                  Inspiring violence

celebrating each and                     OR                  choosing to hate

every life as God’s                                                and destroy God’s

unique and miraculous                                           earth and His most

and loved creation.                                                 beloved creation 

Appreciating God’s plan               OR                    His children

plan of freedom to                                                    Including  

determine the meaning                                            killing their  own  

of our own life.                                                         family members.

LUKE 1;79

All of this will be because the mercy of our God is very tender and heaven’s dawn is about to break upon us, to give light to those who sit in darkness and death’s shadow, and to guide us to a path of peace.

JOHN 14;27-31

” I am leaving you with a gift-peace of mind and heart! And the peace I give isn’t fragile like the peace that the world gives. So don’t be troubled or afraid. Remember what I have told you- I am going away, but I will come back to you again. If you really love me, you will be happy for me, for now I can go to the Father, who is greater than I am. I have told you these things before they happen so that when they do, you will believe in me.” said Jesus Christ

Hebrews 12: 14-15

Try to stay out of  all quarrels and seek to live a clean and holy life, for one who is not holy will not see the Lord. Look after each other so that not a one of you will fail to find God’s blessings. Watch out that no bitterness takes root among you, for as it springs up it causes deep trouble, hurting many in their spiritual lives.

JOHN 6;38-39

” For I have come from heaven to do the will of God who sent me, not to have my own way. And this is the will of God, that I should not lose even one of all those that He has given me…”said Jesus Christ

LUKE 15;7

” Well in the same way heaven will be happier over one lost sinner who returns to God than over ninety-nine others who haven’t strayed away!” said Jesus Christ

JOHN 10;10

” The thief’s purpose is to steal, kill and destroy. My purpose is to give life to the fullest.” said Jesus Christ

MATTHEW 6;14-15

” Your Heavenly Father will forgive you if you forgive those who sin against you; but if you refuse to forgive them, He will not forgive you.” said Jesus Christ

James 2;12-13

You will be judged on whether or not you are doing what Christ wants you to do and what you think; for there will be no mercy to those who have shown no mercy. but if you have been merciful, then God’s mercy toward you will win out over His judgement against you.


       OUR CHOICE …MAKE THE      

        WORLD A BETTER PLACE

                     OR WORSE…

                HEAVEN OR HELL.

LUKE 17;20

One day the Pharisees asked Jesus, “When will the Kingdom of Heaven begin?” Jesus replied, ” The Kingdom of Heaven isn’t ushered in by visible signs. You won’t be able to say, ‘It has begun here in this place or that part of a country.’ For the Kingdom of God is within you.” said Jesus Christ

Any advanced civilization whether it would be humans many years from now, an alien world in the universe (multiverse) or heaven /paradise would expect us to get past our most primal of human thoughts and behaviors. Anger,violence, greed, believing in money, sex with any body, lies, materialism. We have to be able to appreciate the good and not abuse it or destroy it and then seek to constantly improve toward love and peace. Who in their right mind would want us if we don’t make that choice now when we have complete freedom to do so? Do we look forward to huge advancements in our thoughts? Or do we try to destroy what God created here because we think that He was wrong, we think that is up to us to clean up His mess? Not true Christians, we try to help. God knows what He is doing and is giving each and every one of us the chance to choose. That is why He sent His Son, Jesus Christ. We needed physical evidence…so we ‘got it’, so we could ‘get it’. Got it? Because of his sacrifice we are to love and follow him and he said, 

JOHN 13;34-35 ” And  so now I am giving  a new commandment to you now- love one another just as much as I have love you. Your strong love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.”said Jesus Christ

MATTHEW 5;43-48

” There is a saying, ‘Love your friends but hate your enemies.’ But I say Love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you! In that way you will be acting as true sons to the Father in Heaven. For He gives sunlight to both the evil and the good, and sends rain on the just and the unjust too. If you love only those who love you, what good is that? Even scoundrels do that much. If you are friendly only to your friends, how are you different from anyone else? Even heathen do that. but you are to be perfect, even as your Father in  Heaven is perfect.”said Jesus Christ …SAID JESUS CHRIST!

MATTHEW 28;19-20

” Therefore go and make disciples in all nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father , Son and Holy Spirit, and teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you; and be sure of this- that I am with you always , even to the end of the world.” said Jesus Christ
