    ‘If thou wilt be perfect , go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor...come follow me’

    This is a philosophy as any other. In terms of making a sacrifice it asks something that few of us would actually do, but my motive isn't that, but about individual choices, when would you make a personal sacrifice to a greater good?
    Is there a sacrifice you’d be prepared to make? Why would you make it and what would drive you?
    Greetings Palerider,
    when God told ( rather showed by the Spirit's anointing inwardly ) to give/sacrifice something , you don't always know the reason why and the outcome ... not even if it will be for the greater good, ... sometimes yes it is kinda evident , but sometimes no.
    What would drive me (again) ? aside of being the more available possible , the "prompting" of the Holy Spirit.
    2 "sacrifices" that would seem as equally good actions to me, one would be approved by God , when the other would not.

    Remember the love you mentioned is unconditional love.
    Hi Pale Rider:
    The kind of love, faith, and devotion that the people in the bible witnessed disappeared with the destruction of the temple(the Church). The message of the early church contained great power in it's pure form, but the destroyers cast down the message and turned it into a heap of confusion because the original message wared against sin. The human nature is utterly deceitful and prefers sin and sought to stray away or change the message and what you have today is lots of counterfeit messages.

    I am seeking to reconstruct the true message and have had some success (thank God). Good works are always acceptible with a good heart and I feel my good work has been to reconstruct the truth and to make it known to those whom care (God willing), if there be any who do care if they can see through the Devils smoke screen. At the same time I must war against the sins of my flesh that are against my faith.

    Sincerely:
    Hehatreadethit
