30 Mar You Have a Hidden Motive Without a Forgiving Heart (Sunday Service, May 18, 2008)
Watch this BOND Sunday Service (above), which originally aired Sunday, May 18, 2008.
If you don’t have a forgiving heart, you have a hidden motive — meaning you’re judging and playing God, and looking to gain from others. We also talk about the question: What does it mean to worship in spirit and truth?
Jesse talks with people about anger and forgiveness.
He also briefly mentions Mariah Carey who at 38 was marrying a 27-year-old boyish looking male (Nick Cannon) who made her look like an old woman.
A mother and daughter talk about dealing with each other — the mother wants to excuse her irritation as just temporary, since she says she doesn’t hold onto it. Different men talk about their issues as well.
Jesse talks about the wickedness of most people’s hearts. If you don’t have a forgiving heart, your heart is evil, and you have a hidden agenda — you may not even be aware of it. This is how parents mistreat their children. Jesse talks about what Christ said in The Lord’s Prayer: Forgive us as we forgive others. He also talks about when Jesus flipped the tables in the temple — that wasn’t the kind of destructive anger most 99.9-percent of human beings have. Anyone who says that you have to have anger, everybody’s angry, it’s normal, it’s okay, it’s good — they’re lying to you.
Jesse points out that feeling bad about getting angry at someone is not sorrow — it’s not godly, it doesn’t lead you to repentance. People can go a whole lifetime feeling bad about being angry, mistreating people, judging others. In fact, that emotion you feel is an illusion that actually feeds your ego for the next time you get puffed up and make a fool of yourself. The whole time you’re going between regret, guilt and anger, Satan’s laughing at you. It’s such a setup!
