Some old men went to Abba Poemen and asked,

"If we see brothers sleeping during the common prayer, should we wake them?"

Abba Poemen answered,
"If I see my brother sleeping, I put his head on my knees
and let him rest."
Then one old man spoke up,
"And how do you explain yourself before God?"
Abba Poemen replied, "I say to God: You have said, 'First take the beam out of your own eye and then you will be able to remove the splinter from the eye of your brother.' "

I don't think Righteous Anger is dark - it comes from everything holy.


I also don't think Jesus "lost his rag". Making a whip of chords is not something that is done on the spur of the moment. It was a deliberate and premeditated act.


Making a what?

Can't find that in any of the gospel that matters...

There is not a cockney translation, so Bernie has made his own by the looks of things????

Have not most people now days tried to have a bible they feel comfortable with rather than try to discover spiritual truths?

Your question merely advertises your personal opinion of the Gospel of John, where "whip of chords" appears (John 2:15). Now that you've done that, someone has acknowledged your opinion, and we've all got over the shock of a non-Christian not accepting part of the Bible, we can carry on without off-topic interruptions. Thanks.

If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies.
Through this action God will hear everything that he asks.

-Abba Zeno

Matthew 6:5-15
when you pray, do not act like the hypocrites, for they like to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the main streets to be seen by men. Truly I say to you, they have their reward in full.

But when you pray, go into your private room and, after shutting your door, pray to your Father who is in secret. Then your Father who looks on in secret will repay you.

When praying, do not say the same things over and over again as the people of the nations do, for they imagine they will get a hearing for their use of many words. So do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need even before you ask him.

“You must pray, then, this way: “Our Father in the heavens, let your name be sanctified.

Let your Kingdom come. Let your will take place, as in heaven, also on earth. 11 Give us today our bread for this day;

 and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. and do not bring us into temptation, but deliver us from the wicked one.’


For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you; 15 whereas if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
