    From what I understand the more your "walk" is aligned with god the more favor he bestows upon you. This isn't my thinking just what I've been told.

    this is not a religious eclusive idea. It is more dependent on the person.

    This pretty much sums it up, but Christians have to be the worst, I think it's funny that some of the most critical, judgmental, two faced people and in denial people proclaim themselves to be good Christians.

    I never heard that (I went to Christian church up until maybe the middle of high school)...Maybe cuz I wasn't always listening when I was in there.

    When a "Christian" says they're highly favored, that means they're ignorant.

    Trust me, most "Christians" to maybe 99% are following the good book the wrong way. So no, they cannot be "highly favored" no matter how much they say they are.

    It basically means im gonna ignore the fact that I live in one of the better countries in the world and assume all the privileges and pleasures in my life are the result of Yahweh "liking me".

    its a phrase i hear alot from southern black christians

    "i'm blessed and highly favored"

    to me, that sounds like you're saying God has given you alot because you're one of his faves


    so is a kid in sudan "unblessed and non favored"?

    The phrase "highly favored" comes from the mouth of the angel Gabriel, when he appeared to the virgin mary and announced the Lords favor on her for being the one who would birth the messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ.


    "And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women." Luke 1:28

    Why are these threads specifically targetting christians? Why not diss Hindu's, Buddhist's, Jew's or Muslims? Why does every thread only make fun of christianity and how hypocritical does this shit sound. Fuck outta here with this bullshit.

    I always took it too mean we are all God's children and he will never foresake his children. Thats my interpretation of that.
