Spiritual Principle Of Agreement


It`s a hard pill to swallow, because I`m not a big advocate of „Turn The Other Cheek“ — I think you need to talk (and really deal with) some of the mistakes that were made to you before you get to the part where forgiveness is possible. But I also think it gets easier every time they do it, and the emotional work associated with it is worth it to get there. Some transgressions are unforgivable. But most of them aren`t. Remember, I`m not telling you to go out and forgive everyone; I tell you to forgive LEARN, for this is where spiritual growth will come: it will come from the path of forgiveness. We must stop separating from each other and strive to maintain the unity we already have in the name of Jesus. We need to focus on areas of convergence and focus on our target unit. We must be more concerned with fulfilling our vocation and mission than with theological „hair fission.“ In the Gospels, Jesus is often portrayed as critical of the Pharisees. It is more similar to the Essenes than the other Jewish groups of the time (Sadducees, Pharisees, Zealots)[citation needed]; but the Pharisees, like Jesus, believed in the resurrection of the dead and divine judgment. They advocated prayer, almsgiving and fasting as spiritual practices. The Pharisees were those who tried to be faithful to the law given to them by God.

Not all Pharisees, nor all Jews of the time, were legalists. Although the modern language used the Pharisee word in the pejorative to describe someone legalistic and rigid, it is not an accurate description of all Pharisees. The „spirit of the law“ controversy against the „letter of the law“ was also part of the early Jewish dialogue. [1] In the New Testament, Pharisees are considered men who place the letter of the law above the Spirit (Mark 2:3-28, 3:1-6). Thus, the „Pharisees“ entered the language as a deviation light for someone; the Oxford English Dictionary defines Pharisees with one of the meanings as a person of the spirit or a character commonly attributed to the Pharisees in the New Testament; Lawyer or formalist. The Pharisees are also presented as impurements or corrupt (Matthew 23:38); The Greek word used in the verse means anarchy, and the corresponding Hebrew word means fraud or injustice. However, the Hebrew word „Perushim,“ from which „Pharisees“ is derived, actually means „separatists“ who refer to spiritual needs and worldly joys.
