  • Never Force The Word On Anyone

    OFFER THE WORD OF GOD---NEVER, NEVER PUSH OR FORCE THE WORD NEVER ARGUE OR DEBATE
    Matt 10:14-16
    14 "And whoever will not receive you nor hear your words, when you depart from that house or city, shake off the dust from your feet.
    15 "Assuredly, I say to you, it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city!
    16 "Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves.
    Titus 3:9-10
    9 But avoid foolish disputes, genealogies, contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and useless.
    10 Reject a divisive man after the first and second admonition,
    Matt 13:24-30
    24 Another parable He put forth to them, saying: "The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field;
    25 "but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way.
    26 "But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares also appeared.
    27 "So the servants of the owner came and said to him, 'Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares?'
    28 "He said to them, 'An enemy has done this.' The servants said to him, 'Do you want us then to go and gather them up?'
    29 "But he said, 'No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them.
    30 'Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, "First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn."'"
    Rom 12:18-21
    18 If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men.
    19 Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, "Vengeance is Mine, I will repay," says the Lord.
    20 Therefore "If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him a drink; for in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head."
    21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
    Matt 10:23-24
    23 "When they persecute you in this city, flee to another. For assuredly, I say to you, you will not have gone through the cities of Israel before the Son of Man comes.
    24 "A disciple is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his master.
    Luke 9:51-55
    51 Now it came to pass, when the time had come for Him to be received up, that He steadfastly set His face to go to Jerusalem,
    52 and sent messengers before His face. And as they went, they entered a village of the Samaritans, to prepare for Him.
    53 But they did not receive Him, because His face was set for the journey to Jerusalem.
    54 And when His disciples James and John saw this, they said, "Lord, do You want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them, just as Elijah did?"
    55 But He turned and rebuked them, and said, "You do not know what manner of spirit you are of.
    Luke 10:10-11
    10 "But whatever city you enter, and they do not receive you, go out into its streets and say,
    11 'The very dust of your city which clings to us we wipe off against you. Nevertheless know this, that the kingdom of God has come near you.'
    Luke 18:16-17
    16 But Jesus called them to Him and said, "Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God.
    17 "Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it."
    Acts 22:13-21
    13 "came to me; and he stood and said to me, 'Brother Saul, receive your sight.' And at that same hour I looked up at him.
    14 "Then he said, 'The God of our fathers has chosen you that you should know His will, and see the Just One, and hear the voice of His mouth.
    15 'For you will be His witness to all men of what you have seen and heard.
    16 'And now why are you waiting? Arise and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on the name of the Lord.'
    17 "Now it happened, when I returned to Jerusalem and was praying in the temple, that I was in a trance
    18 "and saw Him saying to me, 'Make haste and get out of Jerusalem quickly, for they will not receive your testimony concerning Me.'
    19 "So I said, 'Lord, they know that in every synagogue I imprisoned and beat those who believe on You.
    20 'And when the blood of Your martyr Stephen was shed, I also was standing by consenting to his death, and guarding the clothes of those who were killing him.'
    21 "Then He said to me, 'Depart, for I will send you far from here to the Gentiles.'"
    Luke 9:51-55

    3 Jn 1:9-11
    9 I wrote to the church, but Diotrephes, who loves to have the preeminence among them, does not receive us.
    10 Therefore, if I come, I will call to mind his deeds which he does, prating against us with malicious words. And not content with that, he himself does not receive the brethren, and forbids those who wish to, putting them out of the church.
    11 Beloved, do not imitate what is evil, but what is good. He who does good is of God, but he who does evil has not seen God.
    John 1:11-13
    11 He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him.
    12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name:
    13 who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

    xxx Story after story you offer the Word you never, never push or force the Word on anyone. Whether you can see it or not you enjure the church by doing so. You weaken your own chance at salvation. When you offer the Word and they will not hear you. Then you leave. And if you warn them, you only warn them twice. Then you leave. It has to be their choice to receive it, not yours. The only thing you can produce by forcing the Word on someone is a counterfiet christian.

    Luke 3:14
    14 Likewise the soldiers asked him, saying, "And what shall we do?" So he said to them, "Do not intimidate anyone or accuse falsely, and be content with your wages."
