1 Peter 4:

12 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:

13 But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.

14 If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.

15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters.

16 Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.

17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?

19 Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.

 

Why do some church people meddle in other members' lives and families? How serious is it if it is included with " murderers, thieves, and evildoers"

Sorry, should have been 'Do you have a real or hypothetical example in mind, Heartstrings?' :-)

Okay, I deleted several earlier posts to avoid possible misunderstanding or injured feelings.

I mix up people's names all the time and I'd just replied to a post by Candlelight. 'Heartstrings'; 'Candlelight' -- both similar names in my mind as both are compound words. :-)

So, you are basically saying that you confuse me with Heartstrings, Al?  I am a bit confused.

Yes, Candlelight. When I first see 'Candlelight' or 'Heartstrings' I often have to think to myself: which one is Candlelight and which one is Heartstrings? It's not because I think the two of you are at all similar--far from it. It's just that both words are compound words and of similar length.

 

Kitagirl and Bakershalfdozen used to get me all the time too, because Kitagirl is/was a baker.

Yes! That used to get me confused too. Not on their names, but on whether or not Kita was a baker or was that Bakers...

I don't get names confused - I just forget them - "I know you but I don't remember your name."

I used to get Irishman and Crushmaster confused too. No idea why. Perhaps they both started posting at similar times.

Real,

 

You choose to homeschool your kids but the lady in the church who disagrees, makes sure your wife and kids know that the kids won't be able to function in society.......

 

You make a rule that your teenage son is chaperoned when with his girlfriend but the lady(same one) cracks little snide jokes about it in front of your son.

 

The same lady invites the girl to live with her then invites your son over and tells the kids how she disagrees with dad's rules.

 

Another "lady" invites your daughter over to her home so she can meet the young man she has found for her.

 

scenarios like that.........

Talking to didn't help with the first one and she passed away a few months later. There's still hope for the second.

Those are the type of people to stay away from.

 

Thankfully I don't have any in our church acting like this but I have had family act in this manner over the years.

I agree, John.  My church is the same way.  My pastor has it under control, and I don't have to worry about the saints acting this way. My unsaved family is another story sometimes.  It happens in big families.  ;)

I am surprised that someone 'liked' my post.

Thanks Candlelight. It is a bit worrysome to see another person here with the same sense of humor.

...Unless you didn't see it as a joke. That would be cause for even more concern. ;)

You're welcome, Arbo.  I can have a twisted sense of humor at times.  ;)  I saw it as a joke.  IMO, you are the funniest OB member.  You keep this place real:)
