    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.

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

    You are right.

    It is sad.

    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
    If any of my views seem to be strange or new to you, it is to be hoped that you will not close your mind to them, but will emulate the noble Bereans, and not only read and study the chapters would discuss, but will also search the Scriptures to see whether these things be so.

    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.

    Enemy posters? I do not have any enemy posters, if you disagree, then have them tell me. You are not my enemy are you? I am not your enemy.

    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.
