04 Dec Don’t Hold Onto Anything
(Watch 3-minute excerpt) For church, Jesse asked the people, “Did you know that birth is a fatal disease?” The question stopped some in their tracks. Everyone born of woman is dying, but there is a solution. People talked about being born again of God. Jesse and another audience member said that they are never dying.
Jesse also asked what Jesus meant when he told the disciples, “Don’t let the left hand know what the right is doing.” (Matthew chapter 6, verses 2-4) Many people said that when you give, do not let your ego be involved, do not show off, do not think too much about it. Jesse said that it means: Do not hold on to anything, nothing you learn, good or bad, true or false. Be an empty vessel. Jesse had a number of people read passages from the Bible that support what he said. Jesse said that we can be truly blind and don’t know it.
We also talked about what hell is: Hell is anyone who lacks love, or anywhere love does not exist. People are truly evil toward one another. Jesse’s seen adults be cruel on YouTube. He told woman in person that she was evil, and she got mad. A number of people admitted that they still have anger that arises occasionally. One man believed he knew how, but he could not do it. Another man said that the way to let go of the anger is to forgive, to see that you’re wrong for holding a grudge and apologize to the person.
