    Bragging

    Proverbs 27 [Full Chapter]

    Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring. Let someone else praise you, and not your own mouth; an outsider, and not your own lips. Stone is heavy and sand a burden, but a fool’s provocation is heavier than both. ...
    There are some christians bragging their education.

    It is not a good witness to the world for Jesus' followers.
    If you want to be true to God and Jesus, abandon any kind of violence at all cost. By advocating any kind of violence, you are misrepresenting Christianity.

    Education? There are Christians that brag about everything... how much scripture they know, how "Christian" they are, how good their kids are doing.

    Jesus' followers are supposed to be humble and strive to be like Jesus.

    And Jesus certainly do not advocate bragging for His followers because they have responsibility to be strive to be godly like Jesus.

    And bragging is not a good characteristic for being godly.

    Education is a measure of what you have been taught in the past, not how you think now, and what you do is far more important that what has been done to you.

    Gal 6:14 But I will never brag about anything except the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ. Because of his cross, the world is dead as far as I am concerned, and I am dead as far as the world is concerned.- CEV

    Gal 6:14 But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.- KJV


    kauchaomai- boast, brag, glory
    Jer 23:5 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD[YHVH], that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.
    Jer 23:6 In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he[the Branch] shall be called, THE LORD[YHVH] OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.

    More works-righteousness from Meshak! If I don't brag that means I'm good now. When will the poor babes sucking the milk ever grow up? Bragging is not the problem - your persistent and deliberate unbelief in the gospel is the real problem.

    You know how much she HATES the APOSTLE Paul...

    But that was a great choice for rebuttal
    Contrary to what many Americans seem to think, the document we now call "the Constitution" and the Declaration of Independence are not pretty much the same thing or "connected in spirit," or "two sides of the same coin." The two documents were written by two different groups of people at two different times to accomplish two totally different goals.

    I started this thread because gcThomas was insulted by certain Christian.

    And he straitened out this Christian's supposition about his education.

    You guys ought to stop your enemy posters with that kind of behavior.

    I am not talking about you.

    Some Christians try to silence Christians who don't agree with their faith.

    That's not how we should treat each other.
