Finding three or four examples of MEEKNESS in a book that otherwise preaches "as John the Baptist did" is not a mandate to act that way.
The Bible speaks more about HELL than it does about Heaven.
Chew on that one creme puff!
What Bible are you reading? The old Testament may have included chaos and intrigue, but the rules change due to Christ's gift of Salvation. The New Testament is full of meekness. The life of Christ is all about the meekness.
Read what Chirst says when he is arrested in the garden and one of the disciples cuts the ear off of a servant of the high priest.
50Jesus replied, "Friend, do what you came for."[d]
Then the men stepped forward, seized Jesus and arrested him. 51With that, one of Jesus' companions reached for his sword, drew it out and struck the servant of the high priest, cutting off his ear.
52"Put your sword back in its place," Jesus said to him, "for all who draw the sword will die by the sword. 53Do you think I cannot call on my Father, and he will at once put at my disposal more than twelve legions of angels? 54But how then would the Scriptures be fulfilled that say it must happen in this way?"
Why would you bring up John? Are we called to be like John or to be Christlike?
Sorry the whole Heaven and Hell thing doesn't pan either...The word Heaven is in the bible more than 640 times. Hell is only there 55.
P. S. I'm a girl. You won't hurt my feelings calling me a cream puff.
