Thank you! That actually makes sense :)

Quoting jillbailey26:

You're looking at it from a different perspective.  "And if our God is for us, then who could ever stop us" says that if we have God in our corner, we are unstoppable.  "And if our God is with us, then what could stand against" means that we can stand strong knowing God is on our side.  We can withstand anything.

It doesn't say anything about someone or something being against us, just that no matter what comes our way, we can take it because we have God on our side.  We have that loving support.

Quoting rowansmum:

What context? And who is against you? Who is stopping you? From doing what?

Your beliefs are yours, nobody can take that away.

I am not just talking out my a**, I'm pagan so I know all about persecution but I don't feel the need to go on about it or anything. People will judge and be nasty but that's ok because I'm secure in.my faith.

Quoting rowansmum:

You can't deny that the quote sounds very confrontational. Its got no context because it stands alone.

Yes, I can and I do deny it. The only reason you think it is confrontational is because YOU took it out of context.

Quoting jakesmom323:

If you are a Christian, than your mission is to spread the gospel. I dont mind. I respect what people believe, just as long as its positive:)


Quoting Beautiful31mom:


Quoting jakesmom323:

I take it that if God is with us and for us, than no one can stand against us. I think it sounds very universal, not just for Christians:)

It is a bible verse so therefore I put Christian, if I did not I would get yelled at for shoving my religion down peoples throats. 


I agree.

Or nothing can stand in your way :-)

Quoting mom2ljh:

It is not confrontational. It's a verse and also the chorus to a Christian song. It's saying that if you have God on your side then nobody can stand in your way.

Romans 8:31

The problem is, this has no predictive power.   You have no reliable way of determining whether your God is for you on a particular occasion, other than whether someone manages to stop you or not.

If someone does stop you, you just shrug and say "Guess I was wrong and God wasn't for what I was trying to do."

No, it says if God is with you you don't have to worry bc he has your back.
It isn't specific to which God, or to who is against you.


Quoting rowansmum:

So you're saying that all us heathens are against you? I think maybe you're taking your religion too seriously. I saw your other post and it was pretty. This tho is almost like you want to start something

No. It isn't saying people are against Christians. It is saying don't worry about your problems bc God is on your side. You're thinking too hard and reading too much into it. There is no hidden meaning. It is meaning on a personal level. Meaning if someone doesn't like you, so what, God does.

Quoting rowansmum:

What is it you're against? Most christians I meet for some reason seem to think someone is against them. I just don't get it.



Quoting CABZS:

And just like many you have taken the quote way out of context.

Not at all confrontational. It doesn't speak negatively of anyone. It is saying have faith and all is good.
If you don't believe...we'll....it wasn't directed at you. It wasn't saying anything bad about someone not believing. Its just talking about something you can lean on if you do.
