    Yes I agree Shane it is what is in our Heart that Matters and this is shown in our Words and Actions Matt 25:31-46 even in our Judgement of others1Cor 2:15-16 which yes we are told to do but not with an Unloving and Condeming spirit as warned in Verses1-5 but according to God's Truth Jn7:24 We too have Sinned and caused Jesus to suffer greatly and our Abba Father who because of His Great Love for us was Seperated from His Beloved Son when Jesus bore our Sins on the Cross 1Pe2:21-25 - Is54. Good and Evil cannot be in Unity that is why when we come close to God in Holiness Satan flees James4:7-17. Than having The Mind of Christ we will All be in Unity. Ephesians6:1-22.

    Chapter 7 is one of my favorites,why because it talks to those who profess christ,but follow man.verses 21-24 really stands out.How do you know you are a true follower of christ?
  • Mary B
    At S: while Luke 18:13 is well and good, it is not the sinners prayer that so many profess as salvation.
  • S
    mary B: Thank you for your response and I agree, the prayer offered by the sinner in Luke 18 is not specifically a prayer that most have learned if they have grown up in an evangelical church. However it is my belief that it is more a matter of what is in a persons heart, than a matter of the words spoken. As Jesus says in Luke 18:14, "This man went down to his house justified".

  • Mary B
    Yeah but the thing is that there's no such thing as a sinners prayer. It's no where in the Holy Bible.
  • Shane A Plenge
    not So, in the new testment Jesus is in the Temple with his disciples and their are to men making prayers the One prays how he is better then the one standing beside him an gives a list of things he does in his life justifying himself but the other feeling not even worthy to raise his head BEATS on his chest and confesses he is a sinner a beggs for forgiveness here are two payers which are which

    How about this? Luke 18:13
  • Rodney
    Verse 6: An indication to exercise discrimination when giving or offering charity to those less fortunate. Should we give example to non-believers or followers of other religions if in dire straits? or is this just supporting the devil his evil doers? It is written 'love thy neighbor as thy self' but is this for neighbors who are believers in Jesus Christ? Lots to consider here...

    Rodney- Jesus tried to help every suffering person he came into contact with regardless of their religion. We are to emulate the character of Jesus. Matthew 5:44 Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you

    Jesus is Lord
  • I AM THAT I AM:
    Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leads to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait IS the gate, and narrow IS the way, which leads unto life, and FEW there BE that find IT.
  • Sheba
    Strive to enter in at the straight gate. God does not bend his rules for us. When we keep God's commandments, and ask for things, he knows how to reward the righteous. He keeps his promises. Inwardly search your heart and see if what we do is acceptable to God. Judge yourself by the standards of Jesus. He is our perfect example, and he leads us to our Father in heaven. God wants saints.
  • ANNIE
    I think no matter who you are or where you came from, GOD forgives through the blood shed of Jesus Christ. Some of us gets so high and mighty that we forget that GOD has blessed us to get there and no matter what you should always treat people with respect.
  • BSP
    Verse 4 shows the importance of making sure that we work on our own imperfections before being quick to point out the imperfections of others.
  • Donna Glenn
    You are right there is a difference from a True Believer in Christ and a Sinner for when we become one with God we are made whole. A non-believer sinner does not reap the benefits of God which is giving on to us which is the main reason we are to become one with God and that is to have ETERNAL LIFE with him for as We Know the only prayer God heareth from a sinner is the sinner's prayer..REPENT!!
  • Zoe
    I love this whole chapter. Mathew tells it like it is. I love Jesus and know by his stripes we are healed. Yes the gate is narrow but I know I love him because he loved me first. I thank God he sent his only begotten son. I have experienced many miracles and feel he is with me now. He loves us and I pray that everyone could know his love .Jesus will save you no matter how low you are just ask.
  • Jennifer Juwer
    Most people, Christian or not, have difficulty with this and many other things in the Bible. The reason for this is because we are all human and all very flawed. It's difficult for nonbelievers to believe because Christians are human and flawed. We are all on this same journey together
  • D W L
    Verse 17 --Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 -- A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Not saying there is no second chance but we better get it right before we go to judgement day.
  • Jennifer Dix Juwer
    When in heaven's name did amy of us ever become perfect or will become perfect on this earth. The point is we are forgiven. We cannot on our own power get it right before judgment day. We have to solely depend on God. That is what getting it right means..relying on God. We cannot be perfect or get anything right before judgment day. Jesus is our perfector.
  • D W L
    The words in Matthew chapter 7 are Jesus words I can't change them or dispute them.

    Disbeliever: What did you say to them...and how did they respond? Perhaps they were the self professing “Christians” of vs 23 that Christ “never knew”.

    Disbeliever
    What did you say to them...and what was their response?
  • Vanessa
    never pass judgement without cause, do not make false judgement,if you preach make sure it's to the word
  • Disbeliever
    Too bad too many "christians" I've met don't follow this "wise" doctrine.
  • Bruce
    Reading, Studying with Prayer and Telling Others The Way of Salvation Will Keep You Off The Path of Sin(2Timothy 2:4) No One Comes to Christ Until The Father Calls (John 6:44) Ask Forgiveness(1John 1:9) We Will be Washed in His Blood (Revelation 1:5) We are Now Clean Enough for The Holy Ghost( Mark 1:8) The Evidence is that You're Ccompletely Changed(2Corinthians 2:5-17) You Know Impossible Not to
