PostSubject: Multiple viewings!   Sat Dec 17, 2011 11:00 pm

Over the time of about a year I have seen this section of the bible 3 times. I haven't even been looking in the bible when I've seen it.

Mathew. Chapter 5, Verse 3-5

"Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are they who morn: for they shall be comforted.
Blessed are they the meek: for they shall inherit the earth."

1 of the times has been on this site. The other two I've noticed on different TV shows that deal with nothing about the catholic faith.
It seems important. Mainly because I've seen it so often on random occasions.
I've never understood those verses, and I think there might be more following.
Can somebody explain what they mean?


Ying and Yang, Good and Evil, Light and Dark..  All are 2 sides to their own coin.  Niether can live with each other, but none can also live without the other.

I've looked it up and the next sections are...

Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy
Blessed are the pure of heart: for they shall see god
Blessed are the peacekeepers: for they shall be called sona (what is sona?)

Quote :
Blessed are the peacekeepers: for they shall be called sona

That should read "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God." One of the "hallmarks" of being a Christian should be trying to live peaceably with those around us, because that's what the Bible teaches.

Quote :
"Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

This is referring to people who have faith in Jesus, and have been through deeply trying times - and maybe their trials won't end here on earth...but they can still count themselves blessed, because they still have Heaven to look forward to.

Quote :
Blessed are they who mourn: for they shall be comforted.

It's kind of like looking for the good, even in a bad situation. Those who are mourning always have someone who will comfort them - if not a person in their lives, then God is willing to comfort them if they'll let Him.

Of course, these are just a few thoughts about those verses. . . There's so much more to them, and they can mean different things to different people, too. Here's the full text - Matthew 5:1-12

Quote :
1 And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him:
2 And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,
3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and
shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in
heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

In the Catholic faith these are known as the Beatitudes (blessings). If only people would treat each other with such kindness this might be a better world than it currently is.

I couldn't have replied any better than Savannah and Joe have! Hope this has helped, David. Smile And really, when you read each beatitude, it really reflects the spirit of Christmas. loveheart

Ooops Thanks for the information. We scathed the beatitudes in PSR but I guess I forgot them.
