Poisonous Christians


If a christian gives me a look of hatred for me should
I keep praying for him and thinking about him a lot or
should I pray for him and not think about him?

Am I right that if I keep thinking about him there's a
very good chance that hurt feelings would come to me
and the hurt feelings could put negative affirmations
from the bad christian to my subconsience?

I learned that emotions have something to do with the

example: Just say I hurt another persons feelings by saying
he's an idiot then he's likely to get in his subconsience
mind that he's an idiot.
We have to be sheep with steel wool :)

Alot of times, people are so wrapped up in their own thoughts and problems they may not realize they are scowling. So that person may have just looked at you as they looked at everyone else THAT day.

Think if it is a common occurance, or an isolated incidence? I will tell you from experience that sometimes the person doesn't even know they have done that, and remember that satan will try and get YOU to take offence so your fighting against 'flesh and blood' which the Bible says we do not do. We fight against (evil) principalities, rulers, and the like in the heavenly places (thru Prayer)

I would advise you to pray for them for all spiritual blessings to be theirs thru Christ Jesus. Forgive them. Ask if they would like a cup of coffee and go get it for them (if your church serves coffee etc after service) do good towards them, show mercy- real mercy and you shall reap mercy. Believe me.. one day your gonna need it yourself ^_^

Pray Ephesians 1:15-23 & 3:14-21 for that person. Put their name everywhere it says 'you' or 'your' in the verses

Eph 1:
15 Therefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, 16 do not cease to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers: 17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, 18 the eyes of your understanding[c] being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power 20 which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, 21 far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.

22 And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, 23 which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.

and Eph 3:
14 For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,[c] 15 from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, 16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, 17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— 19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

20 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, 21 to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

Things will change!! We have to be willing to lay down our fleshy desire for offence, and desire God's will to be done and pray for our brothers and sisters to grow in Christ and do the work He ordained for us.

God bless you Caleb.
Oh.. and thinking about that person? Yes, think GOOD things. Think about how awesome it is to serve the Lord, and see you AND them serving together and cheerful even :)

See how easy it is to defeat the enemy :D
What if we are the poisonious Christian? Hmmm, deep very deep.

Good question.

That is what self-examination is for - to determine what your role in all this is and what you can do about your life.

St. Ignatius of Loyola had something called the "Examen" Prayer. When done honestly and with an open heart, I can't imagine it would hurt.


I really ought to take my own advice. Hm. Maybe I'll do that tonight up at the church.
