Are these verses ignored?

Are these verses ignored?
The bread that I give, is my flesh. (John 6:51)
Not everyone that says lord, lord, will enter the kingdom of God, but only the ones who do the will of the Father (Matthew7:21).
Faith without works is dead (James 2:26)
If you love me, you will keep my commandments (John 14:15).
Those who do not forgive, are not forgiven. (Matt 6:15).
Mercy is above law (James2: 13).
We must forgive others without limit (Luke 17:4)
Love our enemy; pray for them; do good for them; if someone takes our coat, give them our shirt as well; offer the other cheek if someone slaps us on one; lend and do not expect it back; and be merciful like our heavenly Father. (Luke 6:27-36)
 Do pay evil with evil; never take revenge; feed our enemy; not allow evil to defeat us; and to overcome evil with good (Romans 12:17-21).
To sue another person is a sign of our complete failure (as a Christian); and it is better to be wronged or robbed than to wrong others or rob them (1Cor. 6:7).
No one can put aside, what God has joined in marriage (Mark 10:9). If a divorced person remarries, it is adultery (Luke 16:18). Even if there is unfaithfulness or abuse; we must stay faithful to our marriage vows; just as God is faithful to us even when we hurt him and are unfaithful to him (Hosea 3:1).  God hates divorce (Malachi2:16).

Not everyone that says lord, lord, will enter the kingdom of God, but only the ones who do the will of the Father (Matthew7:21).

If you love me, you will keep my commandments (John 14:15).


The 1st one will involve most people who think they will enter, but none of us will know until Christ comes, so if God has chosen you, just make sure you are following His doctrine.
The 2nd verse I have quoted from you is misconstrued, because no-one can keep God's commandments. The more accurate word instead of keep, is guard, as we guard the law in our hearts, & with age & patience, we will be conformed to Christ's likeness, & sin less, while our faith matures.
So it's not about ignoring, maybe folks just skip the more challenging aspects of scripture, without studying & defining the words, from the original languages.

Kind of a random assortment of verses.  Was there a larger point you were driving at?

I see and hear stuff like this all the time.  Some call it “righteous judgement”. Others think it is some how their personal responsibility to spend most of their time warning other Christians about not keeping Gods commandments.  IMO it is a form of self righteousness that wears thin very quickly.

They are ignored.
There is no difference in the divorce rate, or abortion rate or law-suite rate between believers and non-believers.

many who claim to be Christian, aren't.

do you know the difference between a believer and an unbeliever?

IMO, there are too many topics in this one post, but I don't have a verse to prove it. 

I Corinthians 6 addresses the issue of one of you going to law against another.  The passage addresses the issue of one believer suing another before an unbelieving judge, not a believer suing an unbeliever or vice versa.  The fact that believers may bring a case before other believers is implied.  Is there not a wise man among you who is able to judge between his brethren?

A believer is a person, who is hundred percent convinced, that the love Jesus expressed for us on the cross, is the only solution for all the problems in our life.
