If judgment is a result of the way the advice or reproach should be given, one should know how to do it:

  • You may have the right or be under obligation to advise or reproach, but let it be with politeness, humbleness and love[1].

If you reproach with a spirit of pride and arrogance or with disdain and disregard, this will never be acceptable. If you want to advise or rebuke someone it must be done politely, humbly, and lovingly.

The Holy Trinity is the theological basis for God. It’s difficult to explain the trinity, but if we keep it simple and use the appropriate terms, we will get a long way to understanding this theological concept.

In our lives we are faced with temptation. God does not hinder temptations for a number of reasons. First, to teach us that we should not become proud of the greatness of our gifts because the temptations have the power to repress us; second, to assure that wicked demon who is doubtful for awhile about our desertion and departure from him, that we have utterly abandoned him; third, that in this way we can become stronger by rigors or trying experiences[1].

Even though the battle is extremely hard to overcome addiction, one golden rule must be applied to succeed. “For know and understand, that in this unseen war all are losers except a man who never ceases to struggle and keep his trust in God; for God never abandons those who fight in His armies, although at times He lets them suffer wounds. So fight, everyone, and do not give ground; for the whole thing is in this unceasing struggle. God is always ready with remedies for those struck down by the enemies and with help for overcoming them, which He sends to His warriors in due time, if they seek Him and firmly hope in Him. At some hour when they least expect it they will see their proud enemies vanish[1]”. So never, ever, ever, ever give up.
