    The Temptation To Quit

    The program of God through history is like a relay race. Let one runner drop out and the whole team loses. Let one runner lose the baton and the whole team is eliminated. Let one runner break the rules and the whole team is disqualified. The work of no runner counts until every runner does his share and the anchor man has hit the tape at the finish line.

    The phrase" let us keep our eyes fixed on Jesus" is the key. The idea is clear. There are lots of distractions as we run. By paths beckon us; false goals attract
    us; competition discourages us; opposition causes us
    to falter.

    Jesus, however, a tried and trusted
    leader who blazed the trail of faith by His own
    obedience and perseverance and who finished the course in a
    burst of glory is both our guide and our goal. We look
    away from everything else to Him, if we want to run
    well! -David Hubbard

    Keep Your Eyes on Jesus and NEVER quit!

    James 1:12: "Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him." KJV

    "The man who patiently endures the temptations and trials that come to him is the truly happy man. For once his testing is complete he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to all who love him." JBP

    This includes the temptation to quit.

    This is a Muslim belief, that God's plan cannot be fully carried out unless every one on Earth becomes Muslim. That is why they kill anyone who converts to any other religion and those who refuse to convert.

    But I haven't ever seen anything in our Bible that says that Christianity would be defeated by the loss of a member. Where did you find that in the Bible?

    Thanks Lambslove! Thanks! Thanks!

    I have had my posts edited and deleted and ignore and picked apart. And today I was reprimanded because I have offended and ATHEIST, even though this is supposedly a CHRISTIAN FORUM. I did promise I would not post anything offensive anymore, and that I would voluntarily leave on my own in a couple days time.

    But in the same day, I have posted an offensive message and been accused of espousing muslim views.

    Well since I am already offensive let me tell you, for your general information.

    I do not espouse any view of a demonic religion like the muslims. I do not worship any demon named Allah, and as GOD said in Psalm 14:1: "The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God". Those are God's Words, I only agree.

    I would be happy to defend my post to you and if you have a sincere interest, maybe I will take the time to go over and over it with you untill you are able to see the simple message it contains. But I am cramped for time, and must get what I consider to be some important posts done before I am banned.

    But I wish you to know I am VERY offended by your uninformed remarks placing me in the camp of the muslims. I do not seek to offend you or falsely accuse you, as you have done to me in an open forum, knowing I am in peril to respond. Tear apart what you will, thinking you are doing God some kind of service. Seems to me you would do better to practice the Golden Rule. I have no more to say to you.

    Geez Gerry, maybe you should take few days off.

    I wasn't blasting you, I was just letting you know that what you posted is a muslim belief, not a Biblical belief. Sorry if you didn't want to know. Peace?

    I don't think I have a warped agenda, I just want to keep focused on what Christ really taught, nothing else. I think that I would want to know if I had espoused something from another religion. I was honestly hoping that you would just rethink the whole idea, and broke it to you as gently as possible.

    Sorry again. Really.
