As a result of my increased involvement in online communities, I've become aware of numerous threads where Christians discuss/debate/argue their individual or, on a wider spectrum, their denominational interpretations of the Bible. Sometimes, even non-Christians jump in and mix it up. For a period of time, I used to get involved and try to convince people that the way I interpret scripture is correct. I mean, I'm filled with the Holy Spirit and pray that He will bring revelation when I read and study, and He does. It's awesome. I wish more people would do it.
Wouldn't it be nice if people would be more open to understanding the Truth of God's Word as it's intended, you know, the way I see it. I'm sure that I've never misunderstood God or His direction in my life. I'm positive that I've never taken the Word and molded it to fit into something that is more convenient and comprehensible for me. I would never do any of that.
I just can't wait until we all get to Heaven, assuming that certain incorrect beliefs don't disqualify some people, and God says to me "Well done! You were right and they were ALL wrong, my good and faithful daughter!" Then I will humbly turn in circles, grinning from ear to ear at the great cloud of witnesses, pointing with alternating left and right index fingers yelling, "See!!! I told you so!" What a glorious day THAT will be... for me! PTL!
I think there's a really good chance of that happening. I'm just sayin'. IMHO (in my humble opinion).
I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
