Does courtesy exist?
Quote of the day
‘Human beings are designed to live in harmony and to exercise courtesy to each other in a polite and gentle manner. Today, our greediness and competitiveness has made us ignore basic human qualities, as a result courtesy is slowly fizzling away.’
Dear friends, how can we call ourselves friends when we cannot exercise courtesy? How can we live with anger when we need each other to survive? Our existence is only possible because 7 billion other people already exist each designed to love rather than hate, each designed to live in harmony rather than in discord and each designed to serve rather than to have the nerve not to serve. One of the reasons why courtesy is slowly fizzling away is because we have become too obsessed with materialistic desires. We want to have everything even if it means hurting someone in the process. We forgot basic manners that promote a sense of comfort and happiness. Road rage is a typical example of human beings in a hurry and willing to stop at nothing to get to their destination. They break all the rules of The Highway Code and think nothing of it. People are disgruntled in queues, people are discontented with their jobs, people refuse to smile and people can hurt your feelings too. Where has it all gone wrong? Can you become successful by being discord in all of your ways? Can you live to 100 years of age knowing that others despise you for your rudeness? Success and Courtesy go hand in hand. Without courtesy you will never be successful. Courtesy expands the horizon of true friendship. Courtesy explores the mind-set of human beings. Courtesy is the framework to exist, subsist and assist. Courtesy is a science of caring, sharing and remaining fair. Courtesy must be exercised on a daily basis. Courtesy has no barriers. Courtesy is an art that needs to be cultivated. It is a process of exercising civility. A person that is courtesy is often regarded as gracious. A courteous person does not swear. A courteous person goes the extra mile and always delivers a smile. Are you courteous? Do you lack the qualities so prescribed and if so are you willing to unleash your hidden potential and exhibit courtesy from now on? In order to become successful and remain successful you need to be courteous, period. Let us rekindle the glow of the human spirit. Let us not live with animosity and let us develop the patience and understanding in dealing with varying situations each day. The world is our paradise, let us work together in harmony to maintain it.
THE MAJORITY HAS NEVER BEEN RIGHT BY STEVE FINNELLReplyDelete
When the subject of Christianity has been debated the majority has never been right.
The majority of first century Jews rejected Jesus as the messiah.---The majority has never been right.
John 4:25, 26 The woman said to Him. "I know that Messiah is coming" (who is called Christ). "When He comes, He will tell us all things."
26 Jesus said to her. "I who speak to you am He."(NKJV)
The majority of world rejects Jesus as the only Savior.---The majority has never been right.
Acts 4:10-12 ...the name of Jesus Christ.....12 "Nor is there no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved."(NKJV)
The majority of those who claim to be Christians believe the false doctrine of original sin. They believe that because Adam and Eve sinned that all men are guilty of spiritual sin at birth. They believe in inherited sin.---The majority has never been right.
Ezekiel 18:20 "The soul that sins shall die. The son shall not bear the guilt of the father, nor the father bear the guilt of the son. The righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself. (NKJV)
No man has inherited the guilt of Adam. Men will face spiritual death because of their own sins.
Romans 5:12 Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned---(NKJV)
Death spread to all men because all men have sinned.
The majority of those who claim Jesus as Savior believe that modes of water baptism are sprinkling and pouring---The majority has never been right.
Mark 16:16 Whoever trusts and is immersed will be saved; whoever does not trust will be condemned. (Complete Jewish Bible)
Mark 16:16 He who has believed, and has been immersed, will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. (The Better Version of the New Testament by Chester Estes)
There are no translations that translate Mark 16:16 as such, "He who believes and has been sprinkled or poured shall be saved."---The majority has never been right.
The majority of Baptist believe that water baptism is not essential to the forgiveness of sins and that once you are saved you can never be lost---The majority of Baptists have never been right.
Acts 2:38 Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.(NKJV)
Galatians 5:1-4.....you have fallen from grace.(NKJV)
The majority of those who claim to be Christian believe that their church denomination is the final authority when it comes to faith and practice of the Christian faith---The majority has never been right.
The word of God found in the Bible and the Bible alone is not only the final authority, but the only authority for mankind.
THE MAJORITY WILL NOT BE GOING TO HEAVEN
Matthew 7:13-14 "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 14 "Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.(NKJV)
If the majority were always right there would be many who find life eternal, however---The majority has never been right.
Luke 13:23-24 Then one said to Him, "Lord, are there few who are saved?" And He said to them, 24 "Strive to enter the narrow gate for many, I say to you, will seek to enter and will not be able.(NKJV)
