    Cool Do You Get Offended?

    Do Words Offend You?
    Heb 4:12-13
    12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
    13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.
    Matt 13:57
    57 So they were offended at Him. But Jesus said to them, "A prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house."
    Matt 11:6
    6 "And blessed is he who is not offended because of Me."
    Matt 24:8-13
    8 "All these are the beginning of sorrows.
    9 "Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name's sake.
    10 "And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another.
    11 "Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many.
    12 "And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.
    13 "But he who endures to the end shall be saved.
    1 Tim 4:1-2
    1 Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons,
    2 speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron,
    Col 2:8
    8 Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ.
    2 Tim 4:2-4
    2 Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.
    3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers;
    4 and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.
    Mark 7:7
    7 And in vain they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.'
    Rom 8:7-8
    7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be.
    8 So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
    (NKJ)
    xxx A born again Christian cannot be offended. To be offended one has to have an unclean spirit in them. All emotions are unclean spirits. If you get offended it is because an unclean spirit in you doesnt want you to hear the truth. So he jumps up with a strong feeling and then lies to you. The truth will always arouse unclean spirits. We are suppose to resist the devil and he will have to leave us. He doesnt the first time you resist him, but he does get weaker every time you resist him. Until he has to leave.

    James 3:1-2

    1 My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation.
    2 For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body.
    (KJV)

    If you get offended, you have an unclean spirit in you. The only way to get rid of an unclean spirit is to resist him. Don't give into him.

    Matt 26:31
    31 Then Jesus said to them, "All of you will be made to stumble because of Me this night, for it is written: 'I will strike the Shepherd, and the sheep of the flock will be scattered.'
    (NKJ)

    Matt 26:33-35
    33 Peter answered and said to Him, "Even if all are made to stumble because of You, I will never be made to stumble."
    34 Jesus said to him, "Assuredly, I say to you that this night, before the rooster crows, you will deny Me three times."
    35 Peter said to Him, "Even if I have to die with You, I will not deny You!" And so said all the disciples.
    (NKJ)

    2 Cor 11:20-31
    20 For you put up with it if one brings you into bondage, if one devours you, if one takes from you, if one exalts himself, if one strikes you on the face.
    21 To our shame, I say that we were too weak for that! But in whatever anyone is bold-- I speak foolishly-- I am bold also.
    22 Are they Hebrews? So am I. Are they Israelites? So am I. Are they the seed of Abraham? So am I.
    23 Are they ministers of Christ?-- I speak as a fool-- I am more: in labors more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequently, in deaths often.
    24 From the Jews five times I received forty stripes minus one.
    25 Three times I was beaten with rods; once I was stoned; three times I was shipwrecked; a night and a day I have been in the deep;
    26 in journeys often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils of my own countrymen, in perils of the Gentiles, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren;
    27 in weariness and toil, in sleeplessness often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness--
    28 besides the other things, what comes upon me daily: my deep concern for all the churches.
    29 Who is weak, and I am not weak? Who is made to stumble, and I do not burn with indignation?
    30 If I must boast, I will boast in the things which concern my infirmity.
    31 The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who is blessed forever, knows that I am not lying.
    (NKJ)

    I never get offended, how dare you ask such a question?
    "And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship and in breaking of bread and in prayers." Acts 2:42

    "Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind" Philippians 2:2

    Pro scripture = Protestant

    A real born again Christian can discuss any subject without being offended. Can you discuss any subject in the bible without getting offended?

    Like women, men, sex, dress, makeup, hair, emotions, affections, condemned, sin.

    In the milk understanding people believe that offend means to upset someone. The bibles term for offend is to cause one to stumble or sin. You cant offend someone by quoting the verses. You can offend someone if your interpretation is wrong.

    If you can get your feelings hurt, you have a spirit.

    Where do you come up with this stuff Squeaky. Emotions are a natural instinctive state of mind deriving from one's circumstances, mood, or relationships with others. Far from being possessed by an unclean spirit.
    He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.

    I guess you haven't learned that yet. I think your confusing affections for emotions. There is a big difference. Of course if you don't know the difference your probably giving into and emotions thinking it is an affection. Go down and pick out which of these acts are not driven by an emotion.

    [Gal 5:17, 19-21, 24
    17 For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish. ...
    19 Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness,
    20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies,
    21 envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told [you] in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. ...
    24 And those [who are] Christ's have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

    He was just making a joke - He was saying "I never get offended" but saying it in a way that he purposely pretended to be very offended ("how dare you!"). Its hard to explain but i hope that makes a bit of sense
