I sure will Brandon! God, I pray that you will allow us to receive a foot or two of snow this winter, and that the season will go into April, and for Brandon to come to know of your love, and how you know how to give good gifts, Amen!!

wow, thanks chillax. (hope you don't mind that term) that's totally where I'm at right now. desiring to draw closer to God through immediate obedience, and accepting His mercy and grace when I fall short. I usually hang out in the guilt of False Humility and Pride simultaneously. trying to accept that through Christ I will do and be awesomeness, and like Jesus, will be sought after to be put on a pedestal. I'm ready for it now. so when the praise comes, I know where it needs to go.

chillax software, I totally agree with you. I'm learning that the small things are big to God. (responsibility, being faithful in the small things). and the big things are small to him. (His resources, freely poured out when we are obedient)

I feel ya Joey. for people to have such an attitude about the body that God gave them is messed up. though you have to understand, it's just how people(including myself) think when we aren't living life in God's love.

There was a pin-drop silence.

A person may dismissively say that he or she does not see a moral order. But I strongly suspect that the real issue is not an absence of moral order in the world but the insistence on determining for oneself what is good and what is evil, in spite of what we intuitively know to be true.

wow, sgreen. that's deep. I find myself questioning out loud things like that. backwards logic that makes sense in the mind decrepit from not following Christ. I walked away for a bit, but I'm back. good thing He never left or forsake me. :)

For some of you, this example is applicable. For some, it may not be. All I'm saying is to find a way to remind our global neighbors that we love them. Because God meant it when he said "Love thy neighbor" (Matthew 22:39).

That is a cool idea. I am in.

This really did help a lot.
We have a discipleship program at my church where two people meet and read through Multiply by Francis Chan. One of the persons is supposed to be like a mentor of sorts to guide the lesson/reading. My partner and I are on the same level but we like to bounce these kind of thought-provoking questions. When I brought this question up it took him a while to answer. It seemed as though he sort of felt the same way.

As Christians, we are to share the Gospel, correct? But I've heard some leaders/speakers say that we should let God build us up and we should allow the Hoyl Spirit to mature us in our spirituality before we go sharing. I believe Paul also says that our tongues can hurt the spread of the Gospel the most. To me it sounded like he was saying that we should learn and be sure that we know what we speak of before we go and preach the wrong message. Other places I've heard that when we share the Gospel, the Holy Spirit moves in us and puts the words in our mouths for us.

I'm conflicted as to how I am to go about sharing the Gospel. Anyone have any thoughts on how to clear this up?
Always start w/God’s word. It’s the starting point/foundation for everything we know about God and what he wants from/for us. (Look at Psalm 119 and note how the psalmist describes the importance, necessity, etc. of scripture.)

In John 6, Jesus asked the 12 if they would also leave him. Peter’s response was (v.68), “Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.” They understood that Christ was their source of truth (and life). That’s where you start.

In 1 Corinthians 3, Paul says, “For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.” That foundation is laid through the teaching of the scriptures. There is revelation involved in our coming to more complete knowledge of truth (Mt. 16:13-17 and related passages in Mk. 8 and Jn. 11), but that revelation is going to be built on/drawn out from the foundation of the scriptures.

In looking at the 2 schools of thought you mentioned, I think there are truths in both. The only problem I see is if you treat both as absolute. I wouldn’t do that with either one. I tend to think that it’s more a case of the Holy Spirit bringing the words out of us than putting them into us at that moment. The word needs to be in us first. He can take a little and make a lot out of it, so the more that is in us the more that can be brought out/multiplied. (Think of the parable of the feeding of the 4000, etc.)

Hopefully, this will give you somewhat of a start toward a resolution to your dilemma. God bless.

I know what you mean. I can't stand reading the NIV sometimes online. it's totally different from my NIV Fire Bible. less accurate. just weird. sometimes I'll look up a verse in NKJ just for the original feel. however, I usually just speak to text whatever fragment of a verse comes to mind into my phone, and it brings up the version closest to how I phrased it from memory. I love how God is using technology for good, what the devil intended for evil.


Sometimes I want to study Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic just so I can read the original manuscripts and feel the true passion and emotion from the words they used versus the translations we read today.

I would always prefer a laid back "fun" pastor to a real serious pastor. But the important thing is no matter which type of pastor you are following, they must be following the word of God closely. There is nothing in the Bible that says we can't have fun. I love a sermon that leaves you feeling good, and it's important to hear the sermons that challenge you to do better as well. Those don't always feel as good. Pastors have to find that delicate/difficult balance between reaching people without scaring them off and yet still not watering down the message.

As C.S. Lewis once said of the Christian, “Of all men, we hope most of death; yet nothing will reconcile us to…its ‘unnaturalness.’ We know that we were not made for it; we know how it crept into our destiny as an intruder; and we know Who has defeated it.” In the riddle of life and death, the psalmist expounds this certainty of God’s action. “But God will ransom my soul from the power of the grave, for he will receive me.”

I agree with lightning. Personality is not going to be requisite #1 on any list of qualities for elder/bishop, but are those 2 personality traits mutually exclusive?


Not mutually exclusive. Growing up the pastors were fun-ish at the pulpit and more fun in person. The one at the church I go to now is fun but serious at the same time. Laid back but still doesn't allow other leaders to slack or the congregation to fall asleep. It's kind of like how Google or Facebook have their work environments: fun, relaxed, and productive.

It is nice to have a plan, and something that keeps you on track. Having someone to be accountable for it is also very helpful.

Look at Psalms. David did a lot of praising and giving thanks to the Lord in his poema.

I pray on my commute to work. It's great because driving doesn't take much thought and I can see the sky and all that He has created. The day has just started and there is so much to be thankful for and pray about.

Keep in mind that prayers should be personal:
Start with thanking God for all He has done. For sending His son for us.
Then ask Him to forgive you. Confess what you have done wrong and ask Him to help make you into what he longs for you to be.
Then approach Him with your concerns. He already knows what your heart desires, but he finds joy in His children coming to Him for guidance and assistance.

Not sure just what you mean by "find"ing prayers, but maybe the book of Psalms is what you're looking for.

“Worship is the submission of all our nature to God. It is the quickening of conscience by His holiness; the nourishment of mind with His truth; the purifying of imagination by His beauty; the opening of the heart to His love; the surrender of will to His purpose — and all of this gathered up in adoration, the most selfless emotion of which our nature is capable and therefore the chief remedy for that self-centeredness which is our original sin and the source of all actual sin.”

- William Temple, Archbishop of Canterbury

I agree completely. That's why a lot of church's will have additional group meetings for youth. They learn differently and go through different things at different points in life. And teens are especially hard to hold attention and keep involved.
