What is Christ-Like?

If you read one of my favorite chapters in the Bible, and that is Philippians 2, you’ll be humbled and see why we should never treat anyone with disrespect or anger (unless it is righteous anger). The Apostle Paul tells us what it means to be Christ-like, so ask yourself, how would Jesus react? What would He do? What would He say in this situation? Would He react the way that I do? What if He were standing next to you and watching this (and He is!)? Paul writes, “Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others” (Phil 2:3-4), but what if someone’s yelling at you (or me)? If others are more significant that we are, at least in our eyes, we won’t revile when reviled. Jesus didn’t. Paul writes that even “though [Jesus] was in the form of God, [He] did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross” (Phil 2:6-8). When we get angry, we’re not displaying humility. When we’re worried about ourselves, we’re not esteeming others better than ourselves.
Have a Blessed Day

  1. If you read your bible Dear Doctor the bulk of the New Testament comes from the Old Testament. It was the men who heard the word of God that destroyed the heathens of the Old Testament. You know as well as I do that God never ordained a religion, Pentecostal or otherwise, tithing was created by the Roman Catholic Church in the 1600’s made it a law and the reformers went along with it. You make your money, I got back my life by walking away from mans altar’s. You like the council of Nicea in 325 AD rebuked the God of the Jewish and follow the doctrines of the Roman Empire . We are to rebuke the darkness be it a Doctoral degree or not I really do not care about man’s titles. For the sake of argument I have a 163 IQ . You show me at the Cross why the Woman is not being crucified then you read the last chapter of Revelation and tell anywhere in their that there is a condemnation against the Woman. I understand the symbolism and the spirit of the Aramaic and Hebrew languages because I desired 15 yrs ago to find the God of Abraham, Isaac and jacob. You are nothing more than a Pharisee and you teach others what you have learned from other men. Sit back on your tail and collect the money from the poor of America. I teach I don’t collect money.
