I write this in response to so called pseudo good luck email sent around the world in the name of bonding, unity, success and all other gibberish they propound.
Please read through it carefully and read the truth in response to these false teachings.
Yahshua said: I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. JOHN 14:6
These false teachings were sent around the world by ANTHONY ROBBINS ORGANIZATION.
Here we go now with my responses.
REMEMBER! MY RESPONSES
ONE. Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully. (FALSE)
God did not say you should love your neighbour more than yourself.
[Mat 19:19 Honor thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. ]]
TWO. Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other. (FALSE)
Does that mean any woman I love talking to like my sisters, I should marry?
[Gen 2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.]
THREE. Don't believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want. (FALSE)
Believe every word of the Lord and thou shall be saved. Walk in all His ways and thy days shall be prolonged.
[Deu 5:33 Ye shall walk in all the ways which the LORD your God hath commanded you, that ye may live, and that it may be well with you, and that ye may prolong your days in the land which ye shall possess.]
FOUR. When you say, 'I love you ,' mean it. (FALSE)
When I say to an idol I love you, should I mean it?
[Deu 10:12 [….. and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul,]
FIVE. When you say, 'I'm sorry,' look the person in the eye. (FALSE)
Looking into the eye of someone to say I’m sorry doesn’t mean anything at all. But true repentance comes from within.
[2Co 7:10 For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.]
SIX. Be engaged at least six months before you get married. (False). The Bible did not say that. Marriage is even not a prerequisite to salvation.
[Luk 20:35 But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage: ]
SEVEN. Believe in love at first sight. (FALSE)
When I see a demon should I believe at first sight and love it? It ‘s only God’s Love at first sight THAT saved us.
[1Jn 4:9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. ]
EIGHT. Never laugh at anyone's dream. People who don't have dreams don't have much.(FALSE)
You have the right to laugh at the devil’s dream. For none of the devil’s dream can manifest against you a child of God so go on and laugh at the devil because through a dream our saviour was conceived and born to save us.
[Mat 1:20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife; for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. ]
NINE. Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it's the only way to live life completely. (FALSE)
It’s not worth dying for anything of this world because Christ came to die for us because God loved us. Any passion you have in life must be towards doing God’s will.
TEN.. In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling. (FALSE)
The battle we fight belongs to the Lord.
[Exo 14:14 The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.]
ELEVEN. Don't judge people by their relatives. (FALSE) Does it mean you can judge the people on other terms except by their relatives? The Word of God says :
[ Mat 7:1 Judge not, that ye be not judged. ]
TWELVE. Talk slowly but think quickly. (FALSE)
Not all humans are created the same. Some are likely to be hyper and make a lot of sense and some may even be very slow but full of junk. Therefore the right answer to this is:
[Pro 16:32 He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.]
THIRTEEN. When someone asks you a question you don't want to answer, smile and ask, 'Why do you want to know?' (FALSE)
Answering a question with a question rather shows disrespect and may lead to strife.
[Pro 15:18 A wrathful man stirreth up strife: but he that is slow to anger appeaseth strife.]
FOURTEEN. Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk. (TRUE)
[Joh 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. ]
FIFTEEN. Say 'bless you' when you hear someone sneeze. (TRUE) Only let positive things come out from your mouth.
[Psa 145:21 My mouth shall speak the praise of the LORD: and let all flesh bless his holy name forever and ever.]
SIXTEEN. When you lose, don't lose the lesson ! (FALSE) When you loose, go to God in prayer and He will direct your path to recovery of your lost fortune)
[1Ki 20:25 And number thee an army, like the army that thou hast lost, horse for horse, and chariot for chariot: and we will fight against them in the plain, and surely we shall be stronger than they.]
SEVENTEEN. Remember the three R's: Respect for self; Respect for others; and responsibility for all your actions. (RELATIVE)
[(Rom 6:16) Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? ]
EIGHTEEN. Don't let a little dispute injure a great friendship.( FALSE) when great friendship is at the expense of your life, you must let it go.
[Pro 22:24 Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go: ]
NINETEEN. When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it. (FALSE)
The Bible tells us to repent. When you try by your own efforts to correct your mistakes in life, you will never move forward. Repent and move on. It’s for repentance that Christ came and not for correction.
[Mar 2:17 When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. ]
TWENTY. Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice. (FALSE)
It’s pretencious and deceptive when you are in a bad mood or angry about someone and pretend on the phone you are happy about that person is considered deceptive and evil. Let your true feelings be known.
[Php 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.]
TWENTY-ONE. Spend some time alone.
[Gen 2:18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a help meet for him.]
Now, here's the FUN part!
There is no THREAT by saying you should forward it to a lot of people to experience a miracle in your life.
If you want to spread it around, do so in believing that you are spreading the message of God and NOT in expectation of a miracle.
Believe me; your life is already a miracle because God chose you to be created in His image and likeness.
Believe in the Lord Yahshua (Jesus Christ) and give your life to Him.
