isuflyboy saidI live my live by tret others as you'd like to bed treated. I'm polite and respectful to those who do the same to me, and for the most part people who don't. I'm a Christian, I try and live my life according to gods commands, and what do I get out of it? NOTHING! My fraternity just presented to the student government association on why we need funding to go to our national conference in Washington D.C.. We were told that we were approved for funding, and we just got an email today that says we did not receive any funding whatsoever... Why!?!
(This is where I rant)
All I do is try to be fair to others, and I get absolutely nothing in return, not that I expect it but everything I try to do gets thrown out or doesn't happen.
isuflyboy, I'm addressing yo as one Christian to another. I'm curious as to what you mean by god's commandments. There are only two laws, love on another as you love yourself, and love your Maker more than that. Any other rule or saying or commandment etc are superseded, and some made invalid, by those two.
I'm not understanding, apologies, how that would somehow make god meddle so that your group would receive funding, or that anything you try would have god intervening to make you successful. God is there for your spiritual, not material, solace.
God is about this, not gain.
Cor13:1-4 " If I speak in the tongues[a] of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,[b] but do not have love, I gain nothing.
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres."
