Take It Up With Your Conscience


Let's review prior conversation to "take it up with the Lord".  

Why would you take something up with the Lord?  

How to phrase the question without assigning false blame?

In a world of constant misdirection, misinformation, to mistrust or hate differences or other tribal loyalties, the blame-shifting, victim shaming, are at unbelievable mindless, heartless, soulless levels.   

Where do you stand?  

On the foundation of the Teachings of Jesus Christ, at the heart of Love and fellowship of the Holy Spirit or on the quicksand of Caesar, at the power trips of the powerful?  

Who controls your mind, heart and soul?  

The Lord does not control your mind, heart or soul, (or want to) because that is not the purpose of free will, the freedom to choose who you are and who you want to be.  

Being with the Holy Spirit is not giving up all sense of self or responsibility to the Lord as if the Lord is responsible for everything that happens when it is people that have the responsibility of stewardship.  

What can be taken up with the Lord then?  

Acts of God, not of man or person.  

The Lord created people.  

If you do not like differences between people, color of skin, gender, race ....then take it up with the Lord, because people do not self determine their color of skin, original gender or the family they are born into.  

It is determined by the Lord.  

The main point of the review is not to take up the issues, sins and problems of man and person up with the Lord, but to take it up with your conscience.  

In order to have a real and true relationship with the Lord, it must be based upon a clear conscience, not messed up by lies and deception of self and others.  

This holiday season, "Take it up with your conscience" before you "take it up with the Lord".  

  "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see the Lord."                                - Matthew 5:8  Without a pure heart...
