Bring It On-Line: Forgiving Others

Can you give me your opinion about "Preparedness/stocking up" on food and essentials for the tribulation? I work with an atheist who gets openly hostile at the mere mention of God, I have tried to witness to her. Should I just abandon ... Read Transcript


TIME TO BRING IT ON WITH THE

E-MAIL QUESTIONS YOU HAVE

SUBMITTED.

FIRST IS FROM BELINDA, I HEARD

YOU SAY YOU BELIEVED THE CHURCH

WILL LIVE THROUGH THE

TRIBULATION, CAN YOU TALK ABOUT

PREPAREDNESS/STOCKING UP ON FOOD

AND ESSENTIALS.

SHOULD I BELIEVE GOD WILL

PROVIDE OR PREPARE FOR THE

WORST?

PAT: I TELL YOU WHAT,

REGARDLESS OF THE TRIBULATION,

WE'LL HAVE TIMES WHEN THERE WILL

BE HURRICANES, POWER OUTAGES,

EARTHQUAKES AND ALL KINDS OF

DISASTERS THAT COME ABOUT.

IN SUCH AN OCCASION, IF YOU HAVE

FRESH WATER, IF YOU HAVE A

SOURCE OF FOOD, IF YOU HAVE SOME

FLASHLIGHTS AND A BATTERIED

RADIO AND A FEW THINGS AND FIRST

AID KIT, YOU MIGHT SURVIVE

WHEREAS YOU WOULDN'T SURVIVE.

IN TERMS OF AN ASTEROID STRIKING

THE EARTH OR SOMETHING LIKE

THAT, NO WAY YOU ARE GOING TO

PREPARE FOR THAT.

TRUST THE LORD AND THE BIBLE

SAYS OCCUPY -- SPEND OUR TIME

GETTING PEOPLE TO THE LORD NOT

SPENDING OUR TIME WORRYING ABOUT

THE TRIBULATION AND IF WE'LL

SURVIVE IT.

TRUST IN THE LORD.

HAVING A COUPLE WEEK'S SUPPLIES

OF ANYTHING, DRIED FOOD WHATEVER

IS SMART.

TERRY: THIS IS TINA, MY

HUSBAND AND I DIVORCED AFTER TEN

YEARS OF MARRIAGE WITH

INFIDELITY HANGING OVER OUR

MARRIAGE, I KNEW I COULD NEVER

LOOK AT HIM AGAIN.

WE HAVE BOTH MOVED ON AND I AM

IN A RELATIONSHIP OUT OF

WEDLOCK, ANY HOPE FOR SALVATION,

OR AM I DOOMED TO HELL.

IF NOT, HOW DO I TEACH MY

CHILDREN TO DO THE SAME THING.

PAT: BIBLE DOESN'T SAY

MARRIAGE AFTER DIVORCE IS A SIN.

IT DOESN'T SAY THAT.

IT SAYS EXCEPT FOR THE CAUSE OF

ADULTERY, YOU HAVE ADULTERY IN

YOUR CASE, YOU ARE PERFECTLY

FREE TO REMARRY.

YOU ARE COHCO-HAS BEEN AT A TIMING,

THAT IS A SIN.

MAKE SURE HE IS THE ONE.

MAKE SURE HE LOVES THE LORD.

OKAY.

TERRY: THIS IS SANDRA, I

WORK WITH AN ATHEIST, AT ONE

TIME I THOUGHT I COULD WITNESS

TO HER AND BRING HER TO JESUS.

SHE GETS OPENLY HOSTILE OF THE

MENTION OF GOD AND ANGRY HEARING

THE WORD "GOD," SHOULD I ABANDON

THE IDEA OF BEING A POSITIVE

INFLUENCE AND LET HER PERISH?

PAT: TO BE THAT OPENLY

HOSTILE TO THE WORD GOD,

SOMETHING BEYOND NORMAL HUMAN

EXPERIENCE.

SOMETHING HAS HAPPENED AND

ASSOCIATES GOD.

MAYBE SHE HAD AN ABUSING FATHER,

RAPED HER AND ACTED LIKE HE WAS

PREACHING TO HER FROM THE BIBLE.

ALL YOU CAN DO IS BE

UNDERSTANDING AND LOVING.

PRAY FOR HER.

IF SHE WON'T HEAR, SHE WON'T

HEAR.

I MEAN, YOU HAVE DONE WHAT YOU

CAN DO.

ALWAYS IN LOVE.

SPEAKING THE TRUTH IN LOVE, YOU

KNOW, IF YOU TRY TO START AN

ENGINE WITHOUT OIL, THE ENGINE

WILL GET FRICTION AND TEAR

ITSELF UP.

IF THERE IS OIL, THE GEARS WILL

BEGIN TO FLOW.

THERE NEEDS TO BE AN ANOINTING

OIL AND PRAY FOR THAT ANOINTING,

ALL RIGHT.

TERRY: IF SOMEONE DOESN'T

FORGIVE OTHERS, BIBLE SAYS GOD

CAN'T FORGIVE THAT PERSON.

WILL THAT PERSON GO TO HELL?

PAT: GOD CAN DO ANYTHING.

WHY DON'T WE HEAD THESE THINGS.

TERRY: IF YOU WANT TO BE

FORGIVEN, YOU HAVE TO FORGIVE

OTHERS.

PAT: DOESN'T MEAN GOD CAN'T.

WHAT DO WE DO?

THE MODEL PRAYER GOD GAVE US,

FORGIVE US THOSE TRESPASSES.

SOMETHING ABOUT US, ABOUT BEING

BORN AGAIN WE HAVE TO BE WILLING

TO -- ACCORD TO SOMEBODY ELSE

WHAT WE ARE ASKING FOR.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE PROBLEM IS

EXCEPT BE WILLING TO FORGIVE.

WHAT WAS THE QUESTION?

TERRY: SHE WANTED TO KNOW IF

WE DON'T FORGIVE, WOULD WE GO TO

HELL FOR NOT FORGIVING?

PAT: ANSWER IS YOUR SINS

MIGHT HANG ON, IF YOU DON'T HAVE

A FORGIVING SPIRIT, YOU CAN HAVE

BITTERNESS IN YOUR HEART.

IT IS LIKE A CANCER, IT WILL EAT

YOU UP.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO SAY

ABOUT THAT.

I DON'T KNOW WHETHER SOMEONE IS

GOING TO HELL OR NOT.

I DON'T HAVE ENOUGH INFORMATION.

TERRY: MY PASTOR RECENTLY

DIVORCED A FEW WEEKS AFTER HIS

DIVORCE WAS FINAL, HE BEGAN

DATING SOMEONE WHO WAS AN OLD

FAMILY FRIEND.

INITIALLY SHE SHOWED UP RANDOMLY

AS A NEW MEMBER.

OBVIOUS THERE WAS AN ATTRACTION.

I OFTEN SEE THEIR PICK DHUR --

PICTURES TAKEN AS A COUPLE.

IT MAKES ME UNCOMFORTABLE.

SHOULD I CONFRONT HIM OR IGNORE

IT, IS HE IN THE WRONG.

PAT: I DO NOT DO THIS

FACEBOOK THING.

I AM GOING TO DEFRIEND YOU AND

KICK YOU OFF.

THAT IS THE ULTIMATE, I AM GOING

TO TAKE YOUR PICTURE OUT OF MY

FACEBOOK PAGE.

[LAUGHTER].

LISTEN, LET THE MAN LIVE HIS

LIFE.

HE IS DIVORCED.

YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT WENT ON.

NOBODY KNOWS WHAT GOES ON BEHIND

CLOSED DOORS.

WE SHOULDN'T JUDGE SOMEBODY ON

THEIR MARRIAGE THAT FELL APART.

TOO BAD.

HE HAS FOUND SOMEBODY HE IS

COMFORTABLE WITH HAVING, MAYBE

THEY ARE HAVING A LIFE TOGETHER.

WAS THERE A CAUSE?

WAS THERE ADULTERY?

I CAN SAY DON'T JUDGE SOMEBODY

ELSE.

JUDGE NOT THAT YOU BE NOT

JUDGED.

AND, I WANT TO TAKE YOU OUT OF

MY FACEBOOK, GIVE ME A BREAK,

WHO CARES?

TERRY?

[LAUGHTER].

MY EX-DOG HAS 35,000 FACEBOOK

FRIENDS.

[LAUGHTER].
