My Mother, My Father and I (Brother) Rebuke My Sister Who's Become an Atheist. It was around 10:00 PM today, February 11th 2023. Usually we have a family dinner, but instead, my sister has been partying with her friends late at night multiple times a week for multiple weeks. She?s lied about it, saying she?s doing something else when she?s really partying. She?s really smart academically, but we fear she may neglect her studies. We all talked about the Bible with her, days on end, hours on end, but we?ve just discovered that she now rejects it. :( My Mother, My Father and I, the Brother, are all Christian. So this is a great shame She said that she wants to run away!  I had my suspicions, but this confirms it sadly. My mother will confront her friends and her parents about their behaviour tomorrow, since she knows where they are. My family humbly asks you all for your prayers during these trying times. Prayers to help my sister believe in Jesus Christ with faith alone and be saved, so the Holy Spirit can go inside of her and so she can, after salvation, be truly capable of doing good works that are seen as righteous before the Lord.

Proverbs 10:17 Whoever heeds instruction is on the path to life, but he who rejects reproof leads others astray.

My sister told me to ?shush? and ?be quiet? when quoting Bible verses out of love and kindness. I will not stop loving her, even when I rebuke her, I will never stop showing her kindness my friend.

Here is what I said to her aloud, at this moment.

Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.

Proverbs 15:32 Whoever ignores instruction despises himself, but he who listens to reproof gains intelligence.

This is true intelligence, the Bible! My sister is very smart, academically so, however, I wish to also show her wisdom through the Holy Scriptures.

Proverbs 30:17 The eye that mocks a father and scorns to obey a mother will be picked out by the ravens of the valley and eaten by the vultures.

My mother and I were rebuking my sister because she lied to us, the family. She said she was doing one thing, but was really doing another.

Proverbs 3:1-2 My son, do not forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments, for length of days and years of life and peace they will add to you.

If she listens to us, her life will be extended, but if she does not listen to use, her life will be shortened.

Ephesians 4:26-27 Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, and give no opportunity to the devil.

We rebuke her in righteousness!

Her friends have been a very bad influence on her! They are making her go out late, when it?s very dark out, putting her in danger, making her go on the bus alone at night from a far away residential area. And they keep trying to get her to go to these parties! My mother and I are worried that this will cause her to neglect her studies, because she has very good grades, but if she doesn?t study, she may not do well academically moving forward. She reminds me of the Prodigal style at this moment. She has intelligence, but she lacks wisdom. Wisdom comes from the Lord! It comes from life experience that comes with age.

That was a good session. I?m glad that I could show her the Bible before this world is destroyed. When will that happen? Who knows. But you never know when your life could be destroyed, by natural cause, or something else. But the fact that so many young people are now becoming more disobedient to their parents, is a great shame. To me, this is a sign that the end will come!

2 Timothy 3:1-5 But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people.

She repeatedly insulted us, so I blessed her in return, and I told her the Bible truth. And what shocked me is she said, and this is an exact quote ?The Bible is not fact?. WHAT!??!?! The Bible is TRUE. That?s the TRUTH.

Ephesians 1:9-10: God's "purpose, which he set forth in Christ as a plan for the fullness of time,"

She also said that she wants to live her life the way she wants (a sinful lifestyle of lying). She said that she is against converting people to Christianity. WHAT?!?!?!? The Bible COMMANDS us to convert everyone to Christianity, because eventually everyone will come to Christ! Book of Mark tells us to spread the Gospel! And my father came in and said that what I was saying is true as well. We must honor our father and mother! We must obey their good teachings!

Exodus 20:12 Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.

Deuteronomy 5:16 Honor your father and your mother, as the Lord your God commanded you, that your days may be long, and that it may go well with you in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.

The problem is that she is against being rebuked, being disciplined. For me, I welcome discipline with open arms, because it helps transform me into a better person! He who is wise loves discipline, but he who hates reproof is a fool! We also rebuked her yesterday for lying. Thus, tomorrow, my mother will go to her friends house and confront them, the friends if they are there, and the parents, and tell them to stop being a bad influence on my sister, who is my friend! I pray that my sister understands that, me, as her brother, her mother and her father, we are all Christian, and we love and care about her. Christian Universalism gives me great joy because it shows that eventually, she will be saved! This gives me great joy my friends :D

I told my sister the Gospel truth, finally. I said something along the lines of. Jesus is God, He lived a perfect life, He died on the cross and resurrected 3 days later. Thus you must believe in Jesus Christ with faith alone to be washed of all your sins. Thus, the Holy Spirit will dwell within you permanently. And Christ shall be all in all (reference to the Victorious Gospel at the end).

LAMENTATIONS 3:31-33 For men are not cast off by the Lord forever. Though he may punish cruelly, yet he will have compassion in the fullness of his love; he does not willingly afflict or punish any mortal man.

I rebuked my mother when she promoted spanking, aka corporeal punishment, since that?s physical abuse that brings a child to anger, which the Lord is against. ?Sebet? in the Bible, from the Rod verse, refers to a Shepard?s Rod, a Shepard?s Staff, that?s used to move sheep, you don?t hit sheep! Physically hitting your child provokes your child to anger, which the Lord commands us NOT to do! We are to rebuke her with the Words of God, we discipline her by preventing her from going out with bad crowds, we train by confronting her friends and rebuking them as well! And luckily, my mother understands this, as I showed her the original Hebrew word on Biblehub and outlined the verses, and how they?re used to describe like sceptres of tribal leaders. I love my mother very deeply, and I love her teachings, so I?m glad she could learn more about this truth too.

Ephesians 6:1-4 Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. ?Honor your father and mother? (this is the first commandment with a promise), ?that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land.? Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.

As well, I remember mentioning earlier on that my mother wasn?t saved, that was speculation. Same with my sister?s salvation. Of course, I don?t know for sure about anyone?s salvation status so to speak really, that?s on God, because it?s with faith alone in Jesus Christ in which we are saved. However, when I talked to her, she agreed with the Gospel I had said to my sister and said that my sister must pray for the Holy Spirit to come inside of her. Even though this was an intense conflict, I feel grateful for it, because it?s with these troubles that the Lord transforms people. I?ve prayed long and hard for this day to come! And so many miracles happened all at once, things I wanted to say, but couldn?t find the opportunity to say. And I?m posting this because, we have rebuked her privately many many times before, yet she continues to sin. As such, this post will serve as a warning to those too. I say these words with kindness and love my friends. As well, to all the people on these forums, you have my great thanks! Having the opportunity to talk more about the Bible, Christianity, the TRUTH, has made me be more Christ-like in every area of my life, and has helped me help others. So truly, thank you my friends :D

1 Timothy 5:20 As for those who persist in sin, rebuke them in the presence of all, so that the rest may stand in fear.

Titus 1:13 This testimony is true. Therefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith,

ZEPHANIAH 2:11 The Lord will be awesome to them when he destroys all the gods of the land. The nations on every shore will worship him, every one in its own land.

 

Here's a response I posted to this thread, but figured it would be good for context here too. A shame that so many people are slandering my family, when not only does my mother, father and I (brother) support my sister, but also my sister supports our family in return. It hurts my heart to have my family be attacked by people on the Internet who do not understand the situation. I come there asking for prayers of support, and to say what is righteous, and my whole family gets insulted. :(

 

Matthew 5:11 Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.

 

I'm very grateful for the support that I have gotten on this forum, the WorthyChristianForums, my friends! Honestly, all of you are a safe haven of sanity in this insane world we unfortunately live in.

 

 

My friend, I say these words with kindness. We have established house rules telling her that she is not allowed to go to these dangerous parties. Because they are far away at night time when it's very dark in areas where there's a lot of crimes with bad crowds. Her friends have abandoned her in the middle of nowhere, at bus stops, expecting her to go home in areas filled with criminals.

 

 

 

1 Corinthians 13:8 Love never fails

 

 

 

Proverbs 13:1 A wise son hears his father's instruction, but a scoffer does not listen to rebuke.

 

We let her go to regular parties, hang out with ordinary people. But the people she wants to go with for these parties specifically are engaging in very reckless, dangerous behavior. So, we are protecting her safety out of love and kindness. We forgive her for all she's done. We always tell her how much she's loved and valued. But these "friends" she hangs out with, this dangerous crowd specifically, they don't value her at all! She's getting emotionally manipulated by this bad crowd.

 

 

 

Ephesians 4:2 With all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love,

 

We have helped her study, we've gone on trips outside with her, laughing and having fun. She's even admitted to us that she's sorry for lying, and we forgive her, and we love her. And she's admitted that her behavior is bad, but she feels peer pressure to keep going on these dangerous outings, and she's cried to us about how her friends are taking advantage of her!

 

 

 

John 14:15 ?If you love me, you will keep my commandments.

 

So my friends in this thread, when you say things about our family, know this. My sister admits what she's done is wrong and she has come to us requesting our help. She's realized more and more how our love for her will never end. That's why we rebuke her, because she asks for our rebuke. That's why she feels comfortable being honest about her feelings, about not believing the Bible is fact. She thought she would get kicked out of the house for saying that, but we reassured her that we will let her stay :) Because even though we're a Christian household, we love her.

 

 

 

Romans 13:8 Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.

 

That's why, I say to my friends in this thread, we truly are helping her. She has honestly said that she doesn't know how to tell her friends "no" when going out. She feels forced to do these dangerous things with her friends, so we are freeing her. That's what I mean about the road of destruction. They drive around in dangerous road conditions, and potentially don't focus on the road. They almost could have gotten into a car accident and got killed! They run around on the streets, putting themselves at risk for criminals to attack them. And my sister doesn't want to be forced to hang out with these friends, but she doesn't know how to stop.

 

 

 

Colossians 3:14 And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.

 

So we've comforted her when she's cried about her friends! She's crying about her friends bad behavior! She feels this need to go with them all the time, to try to help them, but we're telling her that she's getting burnt out. And she feels this need to run away with her friends because she's worried about them too. But for us, as her family, we prioritize her safety first. We tell her "We love you, and you've told your friends what you've said, so just leave it as that".

 

 

 

Leviticus 19:17 ?You shall not hate your brother in your heart, but you shall reason frankly with your neighbor, lest you incur sin because of him.

 

So that's what I mean when I say rebuke. My friends in this thread, I love you all, so I tell you this truth. I wish I could give more details, but I wish to protect my families privacy, however when I say dangerous I truly mean dangerous. I'm really downplaying the dangers she has.

 

 

 

1 Corinthians 16:14 Let all that you do be done in love.

 

So my friends in this thread, I forgive you all, even though there are those of you who slander my family. She has come to us for help, willingly, asking for support, and we rebuke her, and she admits what she has done is wrong, and we forgive her. That is true love my friends! :D She has said that because of our kindness and supports, she feels less peer pressure to always go out with her friends.

 

 

 

Romans 12:9 Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good.

 

Here's what she admits. When she hangs out with this friend group, she feels alone! Everyone's talking, but her, she's off alone, just watching these friends talk with each other. She has honestly told this to us. Another reason why I call them a "bad crowd". Not only do they not respect my sister, but they also try to force her to do dangerous activity like things that she's not comfortable with. Meanwhile, when she's with her family, everyone's talking to her, we're all having fun, mother, father, sister, brother. But with her friends, they just use her. It's a great shame how she's emotionally abused by her friends.

 

 

 

So no matter what people say on this thread, we will never stop loving her! This is the definition of rebuking with love! Telling her she's valued, with love and kindness, by us, far more than her friends, who take advantage of her. Hopefully that clarifies most of the situation, because there's many people on this thread who assume our family acts one way, when really it's another. And they are rebuking an assumption.

 

 

 

1 John 4:7-8 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.

 

And it's interesting, because I agree with many of what you have all said, in terms of rebuking a controlling malicious family, like r/raisedbynarcissists, flying monkeys, emotional abusers, etc. But, my friends, that's not what my family is. So, it is good that all of you are rebuking evil families, that impose extreme legalistic rules, that abuse people like fundamentalists, I also rebuke those families my friends! But that is not my family. I wish to tell you all that out of truth. So, even though this is technically just quoting St Steven's post, this is a message to everyone else on this thread. I've read your posts, and they hurt my heart. The words you have said really hurt, because of how dishonest some of them are :( How woeful the Internet can be sometimes, It can be hard to describe situations with mere words, so people always assume the worst and start attacking. My family members are the nicest, gentlest, kindest people I have ever met. Much more joyful and open and accepting then the vast majority of other people I have met in the world. They are my emotional support net, they are my kindness, my shield, just like how the Lord is my strength and my song. And my sister sees our family the same way, because she has told us this. I have so many happy memories with them, over just regular friends. And my sister agrees. We celebrate Christmas with each other, laughing and smiling with each other. And my sister wishes that we could form more memories with each other, of these happy times, but she feels forced to go with her friends. :(

 

 

 

Romans 8:37-39 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

 

We've watched movies together, theorizing about plots and laughing, cheering. We've played sports, like tennis with each other. We do this things, because we enjoy being with each other! We talk for ours on end, we react to the news with each other. She has group projects, and we help her with her feelings. We collaborate on assignments. We work together, having fun together. The happiest moments in my life have been with our family. I've talked to my mom on the phone and someone said "Wow, it sounds like you're talking to a friend", but that's really my mom! And my sister talks to my mom the same way.  :D

 

 

 

John 15:12 ?This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.

 

So my friends in this thread, love never fails! Even though there are those among you who may slander my family, know this, we will never stop creating fun and happy memories with my sister :D All the people in this thread may want to bring my family down, but I say to you all kindly and gently, we will never stop supporting each other through tough times. It's like the Lord, even though rebuke lasts a moment, respect and good tidings lasts permanently after! <3

UPDATE: I prayed to the Lord to fight against this slander. We had our suspicions, but this confirms it. I believe the truth must be revealed, but I always believe in "innocent until proven guilty". Well, here's what I can now finally talk about. My mother has now confirmed today, this moment, that my sister?s friends are talking about doing hardcore drugs, weed and cocaine. My sister is a minor, below 18, and they tried to get her to drink alcohol, which is dangerous, since getting intoxicated could potentially lead to sexually assault. I didn?t want to reveal these details until it was confirmed, because this is very serious. This is the road to destruction. Literally. Because they drive in dangerous road conditions.

 

She stayed with the friend group because she has a crush on a boy, but she discovered the boy talks about doing extreme drugs like cocaine, this is the illegal criminal behaviour I was talking about. Her heart is crushed, she?s cried about it, waking my mother up late at night for many days. I?ve sat next to her, as she?s cried, offering her Bible verses of support. My sister is incredibly thankful for our support, our loving ?rebuke? of her behaviour. Even though she doesn?t believe all the Bible is true, she says she believes in the verses I showed her about love. It has truly hurt my heart that so many people online continue to falsely accuse my family of being abusive. Please stop slandering us my friends :( I forgive you all though, no matter how much hurtful things people say. My family members are amongst the most gentlest, supportive, caring people I know!

 

Another one of these friends, who knows about my sister?s crush, has taunted and mocked my sister. She laid her head on his lap and did other secret things with him. She?s tried to stalk and find out where his home address his. We?re worried she?ll find where we live and where she might physically harm us out of jealousy. Or she could potentially poison the food they eat. My sister says she is traumatized. We must protect her, it?s our family duty, this is TRUE kindness my friends! We love my sister and rebuke her feelings of self-doubt towards herself. She deserves so SO MUCH better <3. Even to those ?friends? who have traumatized my sister, I forgive them

 

Re Entry 10: Text Message

UPDATE Feb 15 2023 11:04 PM. Here?s an update for everyone, just finished talking with my mother and my sister about the situation with her friends talking about weed, cocaine, alcohol, when she?s a minor. My sister has said this exact quote ?They are just mean in general? when specifically referencing her bad friends. This is true, since I heard it out loud. So it?s good that we rebuked her to stop hanging out with the bad crowds. She said ?It?s over for me now?, an exact quote, when specifically talking about her breaking up officially with her bad friends. So we?re relieved that she recognized this. It?s good she came to these thoughts on her own. I?m here with her, talking with her and my mother is here too. I?m grateful that my sister has recognized her worth. My mother just warned her ?They can do harm to you in different ways?. Which is true. Even though my sister has officially cut ties with them, they might not want her to leave the unhealthy relationship and will try to drag her in. So we offer her our advice on how to avoid that too.

Proverbs 31:26 She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.

 

She?s been a lot happier in general, which is a huge relief. It?s good. I?ll be accompanying her to an event as well, so she has a buddy to keep her safe so she?s not alone. The outside world can be dangerous so it?s very important to protect your family members. My mother was worried sick for my sister and I was worried too, so it?s good this is over. It was my sister who on her came to this decision, we just rebuke her friends because she requests it. And she requests us for help and guidance, so we always listen to what she has to stay and support her through it. She just sent a text message chain to her friends right now telling them how she?s ?breaking up? with them in the sense that she?ll be stopping hanging out with them. Thanks to our rebuke, she?s recognized that wasn?t a healthy relationship she was in. :D

Ephesians 4:32 Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.

 

I am also very thankful for all the prayers that I?ve received from various people on the Christian forums online. Thank you very much my friends! ShanaBrown thank you for your support my friend! Meerkat, thank you for the excellent advice. And St Steven, thank you for understanding the situation in the end, I appreciate your words of wisdom too my friend. And so many other names that would take so many words to mention, I appreciate each and every one of you :D I intend to use this experience as a learning opportunity and will take all the advice given and apply it into my daily life. It makes me glad that I posted about this circumstance. Usually, I don?t talk about personal matters like this, I stick with Christian Universalist theology, but at the same time, as a brother, I must protect my sister, and my family in general. So I?m glad that by describing the situation, they we got support from these prayers to help resolve it :) So again, thank you all for the prayers. It?s amazing, because a few days after receiving the prayers, my sister has recognized how dangerous these people are. Even for those who are not Christian, I pray for all their safety with love and kindness, as Christ has come to save everyone and all will become believers in Him, they will understand His Love <3

1 Corinthians 15:22 "In Christ shall all be made alive"

 

We can see eye bags on her face, so hopefully she can get more sleep now. She was up until 2:00 AM at the middle of the night worrying about the situation, so hopefully she can get some much-needed rest. I pray that her friends, the bad crowd ones, they will recognize their badness and believe in Jesus Christ with faith alone to be saved. In this case it was first my mother who rebuked my sister for lying about the reason why she wasn?t coming at home on time. She admitted that it was wrong of her to lie and disobey her parents in this situation, and apologized for it, so we forgive her. We have unconditional love for her no matter what. And we?re glad that she can now be free because she was in danger with these drug friends, to which I supported my mother who initially noticed and gave correction to my sister, because she was worried sick about her daughter who is a minor going with this drug crowd. Cocaine, weed, alcohol, very dangerous combinations when driving in icy winter roads. Our bridges have black ice that forms under them, and many people die in car crashes, so I?m relieved that was avoided. I do not wish any harm on her friends as well, but I hope they can understand the error in their ways before something bad happens to them. :(

Colossians 3:14 And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.

 

Honestly, though, I?m proud of her. We all are. We won?t be here all the time to protect her from dangerous like this, so when we rebuke her feelings of guilt and harmful self-accusation, we do it in a way that helps her learn to recognize whenever she?s in an unhealthy relationship. She says that she officially doesn?t have a crush on the person who she told us herself weeks ago she has a crush on. Another good sign, since that person was talking about doing drugs like weed and cocaine, so a huge bullet dodged right there. She liked him at first, because she didn?t know about these dangerous things, but as she hung out with him, she found out about this criminal talk, which we warned her about, so I?m grateful to God that she took our ?rebukes? aka our warnings of love and kindness to heart and is officially severing her ties with this bad crowd :D

1 Corinthians 13:4-7 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

 

My sister, a minor, has said that she now hates her friends. By friends, this is referring to the bad behaviour of her bad friends. The weed/cocaine/alcohol drug ones. Now that my sister has ended her friendship with this bad crowd, she?s told us more about the bad things they would do to her. I feel this is useful information for you all, which is why I decided to post this. I keep thinking I made the last post, but more and more bad things keep popping up from the past that I have to address, as her brother, her friend.

1 John 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.

 

?What did she do to deserve this. What did she do to deserve this?? my mother says in sadness. I say ?She doesn?t deserve to be treated this way? in response. My mother has warned me about these bad friends with something along the lines of this ?When boys fight, they can do it physically, but when girls fight, they can hurt each other in more secret ways. They can poison you. They can tell you they?ll drop you off but then leave you stranded in a highway in the freezing cold by yourself. They can lie behind our back. Spread bad rumors and gossip about you.? since she?s also had girls do this to her too. It?s a great shame, I rebuke her friend?s bad behaviour.

1 John 4:19 We love because he first loved us.

 

My sister spoke of how these bad friends tried to get her to learn a strange hand symbol hand shake arm movement sort of thing? It?s hard to describe. It?s like a gang symbol. But when she didn?t get it right, she would be mocked and told something along the lines of ?You can?t learn this because you spend all your time studying!? There?s nothing wrong with studying. The tone here was meant to harm her, try to trick her into studying less, to drag her down so they?re pulled back up. My sister studies naturally of her own choice, she does it because she enjoys it. There?s nothing wrong with that!

Ephesians 4:2 With all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love,

 

My sister tried to talk with them in the past, but, for example, a girl from the bad crowd would say ?She?s mezmorized! Look, she wants to be included!? in a mocking tone. I feel really bad for her, I wish I could have found out about this sooner. She?s very nice and kind to her friends. She doesn?t deserve to be treated this way :( They?ve manipulated her into feeling like she?s ?missing out? when she misses hanging out with them even once, which she chooses to do of her own choice because she?s so burnt out from being around them! When they came to our house, I remember these bad friends covered my room in toilet paper, they threw the rolls all over the place. So I had to clean it all up by myself, of course, rolling it back up, since I can still reuse it. If anyone remembers from the pandemic times, toilet paper can be seen as valuable. She?s also vented by texting with a good friend, which we hope remains good. It?s good to have friends, it?s just a shame that these friends turned out bad.

Romans 5:8 But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

 

Now, she has no one to go with to an important event. Just within this month, there was a woman in that area who was brutally assaulted, as the news describes. Ganged up on, beaten, robbed of many of her belongings, sent to the hospital by random people who physically attacked her. A great tragedy. So I will be accompanying my sister for the day she?s there, not just as a bodyguard, but as a friend too, as I do. She?s a lot smarter academically than me, I admit. But for me, I?m proud of that. It?s good for someone to succeed! And she?s worked very hard of course. I value her life. My family, we must protect her. And I?ve been physically assaulted in the past before, pinned against a wall, punched repeatedly in quick succession by another guy as I put my arms up to block, while the people around me just stood and watched in silence and motionlessness. I never hit the person back, I cried, I just kept guarding until he got tired out. And I love him and I don?t hold anything against him :) I consider him my friend. I forgive all people for the harms they do to others, as Christ forgives all sins. Physical damage can last a lifetime, so it?s best to prevent it when possible. Eventually, all people will be given a perfect glorified body, because everyone will believe in Jesus Christ with faith alone and be saved permanently.

John 1:29 ?The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, ?Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!?

 

Everyone will go to Heaven, believe in Jesus Christ with faith alone to be permanently saved, thus all people will become believers in Christ Jesus and gain permanent salvation, thus life.

Matthew 11:27: "All things have been handed over to me by my Father?

 

This was during the Zoom Chat for HopeForAll Fellowship that they have every Sunday on February 19 2023.

I was talking with my sister, supporting her, comforting her because of the damage that her bad friends who talk about drugs like weed, cocaine, alcohol, when she?s just a minor, have caused to her. I gave her therapy advice, my mother and I talked about God, Christianity with her, to help lift her up. Her feelings are valid, she was betrayed by her friends. She?s been crying for hours on end, for days, for weeks. And I support her. I tell her frequently that she can always come talk with me if there?s ever something that bothers her. I will always be there to support her, as her brother. Her mother is also always there to support her. Even when I?m very busy working on my work with a big tight tough deadline coming up, and my mother is very busy with her time-sensitive work too, we still listen to her. No matter what day, or week, or other time. It?s deeply saddening to see the damage that her friends have done to her. It?s a tragedy. I hope that she can heal and grow stronger, have the strength to escape the darkness that traps her and succeed. These words are true. I bless her with love and kindness, as love is patient and kind. I give her advice because she asks for it, I support her, because that?s what she needs. My family and I are always there for her, and we?re here to assist her. It?s like a cycle she?s trapped in, where she?s happy at one time, and then she?s sad, she comes to us, we talk with her, and then later she feels sad again and we talk with her. Love is patient, and I will always support her. I respect her, I tell her to tell me if she needs help and wait for her to come to me for support, and when she does, I listen and tell her that her feelings are valid and that we have unconditional love for her.

John 1:29 ?The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, ?Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!?

Luke 19:10: "For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost."

 

I was also banned from the Christian Forums today for promoting Christian Universalism. And yesterday I was banned from Twitch.tv for evangelizing with Universal Salvation through Christ Jesus. So I believe there is this darkness, this force of evil that is trying to stop me from spreading the good news of love, that everybody will be saved! ECT is FALSE. Annihilationism is FALSE. Christian Universalism is TRUE. :D

Psalm 145:17 "The Lord is righteous in all his ways and faithful in all he does.

Gen. 12:3 "All peoples on earth will be blessed through you."

 

Thank you for reading my friends. I appreciate just you all being here, thanks for reading through this text I appreciate your thoughts and your inputs. The Lord blesses you all my friends, with love and kindness, and He cares for everybody, and thus everyone will become believers in Christ Jesus and go to Heaven, all people in the whole world will be saved by Jesus Christ and therefore everyone will go to Heaven. That?s the true good news, the victorious Gospel, absolute victory from the Lord Almighty, who has the power to save everyone through His Son, Jesus, and thus will guaranteed save everyone and grant salvation permanently to all people by faith alone in Christ.

Psalm 2:7-8: "The Lord said to me, `You are my son; today I have begotten you. Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage, and the ends of the earth your possession."'

Psalm 116:3-8 The cords of death bend me, Sheol held me in its grip . so I invoked the Lord by name. "Deliver me, 0 Lord, I beseech thee..." Gracious is the Lord and righteous, our God is full of compassion ...I was brought low and he saved me ... He has rescued me from death.

Jeremiah 32:27, 32, 37, 40 I am the Lord, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me? ...The people of Israel and Judas have provoked me by all the evil they have done ...I will surely gather them from all the lands where I banish them in my furies anger and great wrath ...I will make an everlasting covenant with them: I will never stop doing good to them.

 

My sister feels fine at first, and then she starts crying about her friends who betrayed her, my mother and I we talk with her and comfort her, then she feels better for a while, and then she starts crying again. And this cycle has been repeating itself over and over again for weeks, regularly for the days. Love is patient, and love is kind. And my friends we will never give up on her. We will keep supporting her, no matter how many times we listen to her and talk with her about her feelings. Look, we?re not expecting like an instanteouns change like all of a sudden she feels better, it?s about being patient. Love is something that perserveres, no matter how long it takes. And we will keep supporting her.

John 17:2 "As God gave Jesus authority over ALL FLESH, that he should give eternal life to as many as God have Him."

 

I told her something along the lines of this ?If you want, you can talk to me about your feelings, and I will be there to listen to you. To lend you an ear. I?m not an expert and I don?t have the solution to all of your problems, but you can let out your emotions to me, and I will be there for you?. Which, what I mean is, I know that her friends talk about weed, cocaine, alcohol, when my sister is a minor, and other negative things like emotional manipulation, bullying, etc. But I haven?t talked to them as much as my sister has, she?s the person who?s been negatively affected and her feelings are her own. Her feelings are completely valid. I tell her to not hold back the tears and to let them flow, because holding them in can hurt, so it?s best tjust to let them out. I tell her to be careful and watch out when forming new friendships. I show her the criteria of an unhealthy relationship, so she can recognize if she?s in one when forming a new friendship and leave as soon as possible. I show her Maslow?s Hierarchy of Needs.

1 Tim. 4:9-11 "This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance. For to this end we both labor and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, Who is the Savior of all men, especially of those who believe. These things command and teach."

Isaiah 57:16 "For I will not contend forever, Nor will I always be angry; For the spirit would fail before Me, And the souls which I have made."

 

What can help is breathing in and breathing out, one thing I showed her. Breathing in through your nostrils, as the Lord breathed the breathe of life into us, and then breathing out. The Lord is life, He is the God of Life, that?s why Jesus Christ grants life to everyone who believes in Him with faith alone. And thus everybody will believe in Christ Jesus with faith only and be permanently saved. Everybody, the whole world will be saved by Him. And thus, all the tears will be wiped away, all the suffering will end.

MALACHI 3:2-3 Who can endure the day of his coming? Who can stand when he appears? For he will be like a refiner's fire or a laundress's soap. He will sit as a refiner and a purifier of silver, he will purify the Levies and refine them like gold and silver. Then the Lord will have men who will bring offerings in righteousness.

Luke 23:34 Of those who crucified Him Jesus asked: "Father forgive them; for they know not what they do.

 

It?s difficult when providing help, because I have a big deadline that is fast approaching, but even still, I help her and care for her because I love her as her brother, I respect her. She has the potential to do so many great things in life, and it pains me that she?s been treated in this horrible way by her friends. It?s truly saddening. She doesn?t deserve to be hurt by the people she used to trust.

HABAKKUK 2:3 The revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay.

Rev. 5:13 "EVERY CREATURE which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard saying: blessing and honor and glory and power be to Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, forever and ever."

 

I?m grateful to my mother to supporting me, she also supports my sister in the same way. She talks with her, even when she?s busy and she also has time-sensitive work that she must accomplish. It can be hard sometimes in life, with all of these deadlines approaching, and it?s difficult to find the time to spend with the ones you care about the most. But, at the end of the day, I care about my family. And I see my work as simply a means to survival, and I care about my family?s survival. So I work as much as I need to in order to ensure my survival and my family?s survival. This whole world has always been about survival, living. And Jesus Christ gives us the ultimate survival, to believe in Him with faith alone and thus be saved. And eventually everyone will be saved by Christ Jesus and all people will go to Heaven.

EZEKIEL 37:12 I will open your graves and bring you up from them, and restore you to the land of Israel . You shall know that I am the Lord, when I open your graves and bring you up from them, 0 my people.

Rom. 8:20, 21 "Creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope, because creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God."

Recollection Entry 20

March 17 2023

 

We must always show kindness. As God loves us, we love Him. Everyone will be saved by this kindness, all people will therefore go to Heaven, these words are true. I have kindness for all members of my family, and I protect them from danger.

Proverbs 11:17 A man who is kind benefits himself, but a cruel man hurts himself.

 

My sister, who is a minor, who I love as the Lord loves us, was tempted to hang out with those friends again, one who talks about doing drugs like weed and cocaine, multiple others who were drinking alcohol and getting drunk even though she is under the drinking age. This bad crowd invited her to a party at 10:00 PM to go to by herself, and these are dangerous people. She told them no, but then they said “Why not?” and it made her feel this temptation to go with them.

Proverbs 31:26 She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.

 

So she wanted to go, like a child who wants to play in traffic because it’s fun, these people can cause destruction. What if they sexually assault her while they’re drunk at night? What if they drug her food or drinks, tempt her to drink alcohol when it’s illegal, or taking illegal drugs like cocaine? These are clear dangerous that destroy people’s lives. And we do not want it to destroy our family.

Galatians 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.

 

Yesterday, on 3:16, I won over a friend of mine to Christ, they believed in Jesus and were permanently saved. Today, the forces of evil try to take away my beloved sister.

Colossians 3:14 And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.

 

We told her she should not go, and in a fit of anger, my sister said to my mother “You don’t have a speck of kindness in your heart”. That is a cruel thing to say, though we forgive her and still love her. My mother started to cry and I started to cry, many tears from both of us. And I tell to my sister to look at the house she lives in supported by her family. The food that is cooked for her, out of kindness. All the time my mother spends working overtime, all the late nights that I spend working and helping her with her assignments.

Acts 20:35 In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”

 

We don’t have a lot of money in the bank. A sudden medical expense from an injury can financially ruin us. We live in a bad area, where there’s the police parking their car, I think I saw a drug deal when running one day, and another day I saw the police checking a nearby house, I think I remember it being about a homicide, a murderer on the loose. I saw two people suddenly start to violently attack each other in front of their house, in front of many children, who had to be evacuated. All in our neighborhood. This area is extremely dangerous, and this bad crowd causes this type of destruction.

1 Peter 4:8 Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins.

 

A parent who disciplines their child with love in this way, to warn them about these dangerous, to stop them from hurting themselves, that’s true kindness. A parent who lets their child harm themselves, and take dangerous drugs willingly, and drink alcohol when they are a minor, that is a parent who does not love their child, that is not kindness. We show her kindness by rebuking these evils, illegal criminal drugs, drinking alcohol under the drinking age that’s against the law. What if these evil people try to get my sister who I care for drunk? What sort of horrible things could they try to do with her? We love her so we protect her from these things.

Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,

 

No matter what, we always love her, we always forgive her. My mother is bountiful with kindness and love. And even if my sister were to hate us, her own family, we will always love her and support her my friends. Therefore, all people will be saved by the love that the Lord has for the world and all people will go to Heaven. Amen.

Ephesians 4:32 Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.

 

1 Corinthians 13:4-7 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

 

Therefore, my friends, I use this entry as a warning to be careful with what you say with your mouth. There are times in the past where I also have said more than my mouth can think and it has lead me into trouble. Thus, to have a long life, be slow to speak and quick to listen. And above all, always love people, there is nothing wrong with showing kindness to others, even to people that you disagree with. My blessings to you all my friends, in Christ with love <3

Proverbs 15:1 A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.

1 Samuel 20:14 If I am still alive, show me the steadfast love of the Lord, that I may not die;

Psalm 112:5 It is well with the man who deals generously and lends; who conducts his affairs with justice.
