  • Osmo on Matthew 7:11
    This verse means God wants to prosper us. Why then does traditional Christianity deny it? He wants to prosper and heal us, and what father wouldn '? Whey did religion remove all the good stuff that God has for us anyway? When did all that begin? Why didn 't Martin Luther bring in all the promises of God when he broke away from the Catholic church? I am a Lutheran on paper but rarely do they bring up healing in the church services. Now people are turning to teachers that appropriate everything God wants to give them, and that is how it should be.
  • Joshua - in Reply on Matthew 7:11
    Look at Luke 11:13, which further edifies this verse. "If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the HOLY SPIRIT to them that ask him" The good things spoken of by Jesus here are SPIRITUAL things. ETERNAL things. Eternal life. Not temporal things. Not fleshly things.
