False Brethren -Galatians 2:4
Many believers go to church, yet hear things that result in them being less than a loving and caring person for others. They are Christian in name yet selfish in character.
    True brethren are concerned about compassion and love. True Christians add to another's peace and can be recognized by their fruits (what they do)--Matthew 7:16-20
     I've heard Christians, the 'frozen chosen' and spiritually constipated ones, remark: "If you let someone stay with you to help them out, you'll never get rid of them, they'll take over your house and may even damage it", but Jesus said -Matthew 5:39; 25:37-40,45; Luke 6:30. Such 'Christian' goats (Matthew 25:33) have no judgment -Jeremiah 21:12; Zechariah 10:3 "Mine anger was kindled against the shepherds and I punished-(original is 'to pay attention to so as to prove guilt')-the goats." 
    1Corinthians 6:3-7 "Know ye not that we shall judge angels? How much more things that pertain to this life? If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church. I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? No, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren? But brother goeth to law with brother and that before the unbelievers. Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because ye go to law one with another. Why do ye not rather take wrong? Why do ye not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded?"
    Rather than be helpful, forgiving and kind, some 'Christian' goats would rather go to court to get their money back. They see not Christ, but the hurt done to them. They are here not for opportunities to grow in love towards a great reward, but for present self security -Matthew 16:24-27 "Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. For what is a man profited if he shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels and then he shall reward every man according to his works."
Luke 17:33 "Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it."
John 12:25 "He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal."
    Some will remark: "If you start giving to some people, they'll always be there for a handout", but a principle is Leviticus 19:9; 23:22; Some goats are too busy keeping the ten commandments to apply the most important ones -John 15:12,13 "This is my commandment, that ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." 1John 3:16 "Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us; and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren."
    But some may also remark: "If you let him come over to wash his clothes once, he'll be there every week", but, Matthew 5:42-45 "Give to him that asketh thee and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away. Ye have heard that it hath been said, thou shalt love thy neighbour and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you and pray for them which despitefully use you and persecute you, that ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven....."
    And yet some may say: "If you don't let them (poorer Christians) fend for themselves, they'll always be relying on you", but, Acts 2:44,45 "And all that believed were together and had all things common and sold their possessions and goods and parted them to all men, as every man had need."
    And perhaps and the classic remark of them all "Well, the Bible says that if any is not working, he should not eat." -2Thessalonians 3:10,12. If we are to even feed our enemies, how much more then others who have a good heart -Romans 12:20 "Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him, if he thirst, give him drink....." Matthew 7:12 "Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them."
    But some 'Christian' people exemplify the walking dead -Jude 1:12. Even in their relationships they are dead. They are there, but not really alive! Romans 6:11 "Likewise reckon ye also yourselves...alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord."
    Detached as they may be from real living, they may be surprised at the aliveness of others. Such parents remain aloof from involvement with their children. 

2Thessalonians 3:10 is not talking about those who may be engaged in something of worth to others, but of those who are not, and prefer instead to pass their time meddling in the affairs of others, causing disorder, as verse 11 there shows.
    Perhaps some 'Christian' goats are ashamed of others not in the same financial class as they. Perhaps they are misguided. Perhaps they're just selfish, greedy, carnal and are quenching the Spirit of God -1Thessalonians 5:19.-...continues to Questions
