    If your eyes causes you to sin

    Real Old Men addressed this questions to me and I did not want to hijack the original thread... I am not here to debate the correctness of the bible or if God is real... I just want to answer the question as was presented

    I have to first give the correct quote...

    Mark 9:47 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire:

    to make it clear lets look at ESV
    "And if your eye causes you to sin, tear it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into hell,"


    SO the question is - paraphrased "If Jesus is OK with tearing your eye out, then it is OK?"

    the answer is yes!!!

    of course the mind set and idea must be understood... Which is better.. to have two eyes and burn in hell for ever or get rid of an eye..

    If you were trapped underneath a burning car because it had rolled over on your hand.. would you cut your hand off or burn to death???? A responsible person would understand that life is more important then a hand.

    Of course Jesus is talking about eternity in this verse which is a long time....

    Of course it would be much better if you STOPPED using your eyes or hands or feet to sin...(IE get rid of the things that CAUSE you to sin) BUT you have free will
    keep the eye burn in hell
    lose the eye and enter heaven...

    As for me and my house.....well you know the verse

    Is there a question for the rest of us?
    Or is this another thread that should be in PM?

    I guess it begs the querstion;

    Is it OK to rip the larynx and tongue out of politicians throats if they lie? Is wonder if that is biblical?

    THE address from Jesus was personal, . . . 1 on 1, . . . from Him to THE listener who is part and parcel to this particular problem.

    All others can go play in the other room quietly.

    THAT person, . . . has to answer a question first: can I personally control my eye(s) so that it(they) do not cause me to sin, can I steer their direction away from sinful lusts, do I have control over it(them)?

    If the answer is yes, . . . then go on with life, . . . have a great time, . . . just remember the affirmative statement that was made.

    OTOH, . . . if the answer is NO, . . . then by all means, . . . pluck them rascals out. Pitch em, . . . poke em, . . . whatever it takes to keep from sinning and causing your soul to be lost forever.

    Prime example, . . . Lamar Odom, . . . spent $75,000 for a 3 or 4 day stint in a whorehouse, . . . after being titillated and excited by the images he either saw in advertisements or conjured up in his drug fueled cesspool of a mind. It would have been much better for him if he had skipped those visions.

    Oh, . . . and "NO", . . . Slippy. "Is it OK to rip the larynx and tongue out of politicians throats if they lie? Is wonder if that is biblical?" while it may be desirable, . . . it is not Biblical.

    May God bless,

    Maine Marine I think you do not truly understand God's word at all. ^^

    Faith is not a contest.
