“Ignore the Innocent Poor’s Blood on Me! I Have Not Sinned! God is Happy with Me.”

Submitted by Thinking CAP on Thu, Aug 5, 2010 - 2:24 am

On your clothes men find the lifeblood of the innocent poor, though you did not catch them breaking in.

Yet in spite of all this you say, ‘I am innocent; he is not angry with me.’ But I will pass judgment on you because you say, ‘I have not sinned.’

Submitted by Thinking CAP on Fri, May 22, 2015 - 2:57 pm

Joy in Heaven

Submitted by Thinking CAP on Mon, Sep 9, 2013 - 2:24 pm

Now the tax collectors and “sinners” were all gathering around to hear [Yeshua].

But the Pharisees and the teachers of the law muttered, “This man welcomes sinners and eats with them.”

Then Jesus told them this parable:

“Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Does he not leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it?

“And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’

“I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.

“Or suppose a woman has ten silver coins and loses one. Does she not light a lamp, sweep the house and search carefully until she finds it?

“And when she finds it, she calls her friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost coin.’

“In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”

Prohibition’s Beast with 10 Horns

Submitted by Thinking CAP on Fri, Mar 15, 2013 - 8:05 pm

[The fourth beast] had large iron teeth; it crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot whatever was left. It was different from all the former beasts, and it had ten horns.

[…] I wanted to know the true meaning of the fourth beast, which was different from all the others and most terrifying, with its iron teeth and bronze claws — the beast that crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot whatever was left. I also wanted to know about the ten horns on its head […]

The ten horns are ten kings who will come from this kingdom.

Jesus Says Those Who Do Evil Hate Bringing Things to the Light

Submitted by Thinking CAP on Sat, Jan 26, 2013 - 7:27 pm

Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.

But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God.

the Sheep & the Goats

Submitted by Thinking CAP on Fri, Jan 25, 2013 - 2:16 pm

When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his throne in heavenly glory. All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.

Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. […] I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, […] When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’

Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. […] I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’

They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you […] in prison, and did not help you?’

He will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’ Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.

Scoundrels and Oppressive Laws

Submitted by Thinking CAP on Wed, Mar 21, 2012 - 12:47 pm

The trouble with fighting for human freedom is that one spends most of one’s time defending scoundrels. For it is against scoundrels that oppressive laws are first aimed, and oppression must be stopped at the beginning if it is to be stopped at all.
