모순 The contradiction 2008. 6. 21. 20:37



I know your deeds that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other!
So, because you are lukewarm ㅡ neither hot nor cold ㅡ I am about to spit you out of my mouth.
You say, 'I'm rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.' But you do not realize that
you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked.  I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire,
so you can become rich; and your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.
Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent.

Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hear my voice and open the door, I will come in and
eat with him, and he with me. To him who overcome, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne,
just as I overcame and sat down with my Father on his throne.
He who has an ear, let hime hear what the spirit says to the church.




Do not be surprised, my brothers, if the world hates you.
We know that we have passed from death to life, beause we love our brothers.
Anyone who does not love remains in death.
Anyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life in him.

This is how we know what love is:
Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers.
If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him,
how can the love of God be in him?

Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.
This then is how we set our hearts at rest in his presence whenever our hearts condemn us.
For God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything.

Dear friends, if out hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God and receive from him
anything we ask, because we obey his commands and do what pleases him.
And this is his command : to believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ,
and to love one another as he commanded us.

Those who obey his commands live in him, and he in them.
And this is how we know that he lives in us: We know it by the Spirit he gave us.
1 John 3 :13 ~ 24
