Closest related principles - Core Interrelations taken from interrelations below.
Our Teacher said serving is the greatest, he who humbles himself. Woe to the hypocrite! (prideful one) Rather have mercy on your neighbor. Having faith in God you can overcome your harmful desires through actions such as these. Otherwise you will be deceived by your unbelieving heart, as evidenced by what your life visibly produces. Refusal brings judgement into eternal fire because it shows a prideful will to not believe God's Word about Jesus, and not put yourself at His command to love your neighbor. (principles from MT23:1-39)
As you begin really hearing (understanding) God's message, He will enable you to hear more and more. If you're insensitive, you won't sense God, and His presence and way will not enable you. Giving helps you get out of yourself and become sensitive to others. Believing produces growing which produces believing, and on and on. This is the path which is opposite to separation from God and doom. When you get to keep what you want, you give up the rest; if you don't want the Lord you will be separated from Him and judged unfavorably for not listening to the Teacher. (principles from MT13:1-13:52)
Jesus fulfills the Law and Prophets.
Broadcast the principles as you apply them yourself. (principles from MT5:13-20)
Unbelievers you grew up with may
reject your new life in Christ. You can do amazing things to help people when you believe.
If you refuse the Teacher you will not overcome the harm from within.
Your insensitivity will cause God to disconnect from you and then you will be overcome by your harmful desires. (principles from principles from MT13:53-15:20)
Jesus has God the Father's approval to teach the principles, and tells us not to be afraid of God's presence. We are mistreated by some people that do not recognize that we belong to God and show the way to Him. Jesus does not like being around unbelief and perversion. The humble one asks for help and receives power to do the impossible through believing. (principles from MT17:1-21)
Jesus teaches us the truth, not the other way around; he said we need to be baptized in water and be filled with this mysterious Spirit of God. He said we need to believe in a Savior sent from God to enter this eternal life; otherwise we perish. Hating good keeps you from coming to Christ, doing good aligns you to want to be seen as belonging to God. He said God loves us. (principles from JH2:23-3:21)
God the Father and Jesus his Son continue working. They are together and show the principles by what they do. Jesus gives life to whom he is pleased to give it, and He has been given authority to judge whether we believe His word and do good (whether we really love the Lord more than our selfish ways), because as a man he knows us. Those who do these things have eternal life, those who don't will be condemned. Jesus seeks to please God the Father, and judges according to His principles. Jesus' work shows He came from the Father. Believing in Jesus brings God and his word into you, so don't refuse him and side with others. Refusing to put effort into following his teachings keeps people from believing. Believe and live! (principles from JH5:16-5:47)
And astonished by his answer, they became silent. Lk 20:26
Refusing God's invitation keeps you from believing.
The blessings of heaven come from following the Teacher; He said to love the Lord and your neighbor. (principles from MT22:1-40)
