Forget! Remember! God expects us to know the difference.

There are 2 popular Bible verses the lost and Fleshly Christians (carnal, non KJV Bible reading believers who are fake orvtruly backslidden or in a new unlearned state) misuse. Thou shall not judge and you got to forget the past.  I recently had some woman tell me to forget my past experiences regarding the dreadful failures of her company including their dishonesty and fraud.

She quoted scripture referring to Philippians 3:13.


Philippians 3:13
Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,...

Reading carefully in context with the proper exegesis Paul is using his personal experience and speaking that his high pedigree and flawless credentials are forgotten and the only thing before him is who he is now in Christ Jesus.  

*Further Commentary:  Philippians Chapter 3 Verse 13:


Again Paul disclaimed having attained conformity to Christ. He viewed his experience as similar to a runner"s. He did not look back. The apostle did not mean that he refused to remember things that had happened to him in the past. He had just reviewed some of those things. He meant that he did not rest in his heritage ( Philippians 3:5-7) or in his past attainments ( Philippians 3:9-12). He had abandoned the unworthy goal that he had pursued in the past. Now he had a new goal toward which he was looking and running.

"Forget those wrongs done, e.g. the persecution of the church ( Philippians 3:6), and so on, whose memory could paralyze one with guhiilt and despair. Forget, too, those attainments so far achieved as a Christian, the recollection of which might cause one to put life into neutral and to say, "I have arrived." Forget in such a way that the past, good or bad, will have no negative bearing on one"s present spiritual growth or conduct."[Note: Hawthorne, p153.]

Fee believed that Paul was referring to looking at the other runners in the race when he spoke of not looking back. [Note: Fee, Paul"s Letter . . ., p347.] I think this is less likely what he had in mind." 

Another verse the lost and carnal non KJV bible reading Christians misuse is 1 Corinthians 13:5. 

Please read with me the APOSTATE Vatican NIV version of this verse: (Love) ...it keeps no record of wrongs."

Now read the  KJV version: (Love)..it thinks no evil."



BUT THE TRUTH IS GOD TELLS US TO REMEMBER MORE THAN TO FORGET:

REMEMBER:

Deuteronomy 8:2
And thou shalt remember all the way which the LORD thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no.

Touchstone to Remember...

Ephesians 2:11
Wherefore, "remember" that ye being in the time past Gentiles in the flesh...


Jesus said: "Do this in REMBERENCE of Me.  Luke 22:19.

1 CORINTHIANS 11:23-26:


Corinthians 11:23-32 King James Version (KJV)


23 For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, that the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread:

24 And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.

25 After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, this cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.

26 For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death toll he come..
