Part 2:The eyes are the window of the soul...

Matthew 6:22-23 (New International Version)

22The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are good, your whole body will be full of light. 23But if your eyes are bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness

Yesterday was an interesting day to say the least. I planned on spending the day cleaning, but when I woke up I had all that stuff on (the previous post) my heart, so I posted it. I also posted it on an all mom's home school site....here's the interesting part ;) Some guy posted comments to my post...well men aren't suppose to even be on this site!

Here's the comments made....

HIM: Wow! Your a christian woman? You are extreamly judgemental and condesending. Do you think your way is the only way of life? or that it is the right way? What a shallow, close minded person! How dare you say that a woman and her family are going to hell because they dont believe what you believe?? i Pray to GOD that all christians arent like you because if they are we all are in alot of trouble. GOD be with you and i hope this comment makes you realize the kind of person you truly are. Your not the "why" type your the "im better than you type" and i hope that you dont treat your children this way cause o what a life they will live. If you think that your way is the ONLY right way then you ma'am are an idiot.

My Response: I'm sorry you feel that way. I shared my heart and asked this woman for forgiveness. I don't think "my" way is the right way...the BIBLE is the right way- there's lots of people that probably disagree with that, and it appears you are one of them

HIM: Well i guess you didnt like what i say. well i really dont give a damn! people like you are whats wrong with this world trying to force your beliefs on everyone else and when someone like me stands up and challenges what your saying you run away or delete messages well u ma'am are a coward! is this about religion or homeschooling???

MY RESPONSE: I think you misunderstood me, I'm not trying to say some one is right or wrong, expecially me. People like me? what am I like? because I care? Because I love people and want to see them after this life on earth? I'm not trying to FORCE my beliefs on anyone. I was trying to tell this gal what the Bible says about salvation...it's more than being a "good" person, you don't have to agree with it...that's your choice, that's why GOD gives you that choice. I'm not running away or deleting messages. Being a Christian isn't about being religious...it's about having a relationship with GOD. Do you have a relationship with GOD through HIS SON JESUS?
You can openly say what you want to me. What you say might hurt my feelings, but that doesn't mean I'm going to lash out at you or purposely try and hurt you.

HIM: i hope you look at yourself and try to change something thats all good bye and may god help you

MY RESPONSE: You are lashing out at me and I've tried my best to answer all of your questions and remarks, but you didn't answer mine. Do you have a relationship with GOD through HIS SON, JESUS? Because you've mention GOD quite a bit in these posts....

He never answered my question, probably because during all this I notified the owner, and he was quickly removed. The very sad thing was this guy had a picture of himself (? could have been someone else, you never know with internet stuff) up and you could tell through the picture looking at his eyes the spiritual darkness and emptiness, the anger, hurt, and pain...it was sad...very sad. So just as the gal yesterday, I will pray...I will pray that this man and his children will be saved (his profile said he was a single dad, 30) Will you lift up him and his family too?

Thanks and blessings until next time!

Wow Bobbi... the agression of his responses was surprising, but at the same time not. You're responses I thought came across very humble and non-aggressive, but it seems when we do respond with a soft answer it doesn't always turn away wrath - does it? I believe he's under the conviction of the Holy Spirit but of course doesn't know that and so just gets angry. I've had conversations like that too - I will pray for him ... who know what God can do? Have a blessed day!
