  1. A Forum Bible Study On 2 & 3 John

    A few years back I wrote this in the back of my Bible. "How Pharisaical we are when we criticize Jonah for having pity on the gourd, yet often we love our pets more than our brothers and sisters in Christ!" God loves those people, why can't you?

    Interesting thought. To be sure our churches need to be united. I grow weary of hearing of back-biting, contention, and even hatred amongst church members. These things ought not so to be.
  3. Rebuking

    It's not necessarily everyone's job to rebuke everyone. A lot of it has to do with how long you've been saved, how old you are, what your position in the church is, the individual situation, etc, etc.

    I believe that, in raising our children for success, we set them up for failure. Until the parents can get their priorities straight, the children never will.
  5. A Forum Bible Study On 2 & 3 John

    It's sad to see that so many churches are populated mostly by women (though we thank God for those women). Where are the Fathers? It's no wonder why we don't keep the children.

    I very highly recommend the little booklet by J.C. Ryle entitled The Duties Of Parents. One of the things that he stresses in there is that parents need to pray with and for their children. Look at what he says about it: "This, remember, is the first step in religion which a child is able to take. Long before he can read, you can teach him to kneel by his mother’s side, and repeat the simple words of prayer and praise which she puts in his mouth. And as the first steps in any undertaking are always the most important, so is the manner in which your children’s prayers are prayed, a point which deserves your closest attention. Few seem to know how much depends on this. You must beware lest they get into a way of saying them in a hasty, careless, and irreverent manner. You must beware of giving up the oversight of this matter to servants and nurses, or of trusting too much to your children doing it when left to themselves. I cannot praise that mother who never looks after this most important part of her child’s daily life herself. Surely if there be any habit which your own hand and eye should help in forming, it is the habit of prayer. Believe me, if you never hear your children pray yourself, you are much to blame. You are little wiser than the bird described in Job, 'which leaveth her eggs in the earth, and warmeth them in the dust, and forgetteth that the foot may crush them, or that the wild beast may break them. She is hardened against her young ones, as though they were not hers: her labour is in vain without fear' (Job 39:14-16)."

    I understand Bro. Markle, I too am dealing with a situation in our church, and was at a out of town meeting for a week. I did want to say thank you for this study, it has been a blessing thus far.

    So here we see that, to be conformed to his image as we were predestined to be, we are to not be conformed to the world, we are to behold the glory of the Lord (it won't happen without seeking him), and it is by the Spirit of the Lord.

    Elect to Be Like Jesus (Conformed to His Image) Using again: Romans 8:29 -"For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren." In Contrast to: Romans 12:2 - "And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God."

    I haven't been on in a while. I hope to get caught up.

    I've heard of Stagg but I've never played one.

    I would like to point out that these are exhortations to Christians about how they should look to themselves. This is not something that we use to "be preachy" to others, this is not something we use as a spring board to exalt ourselves. This is, in a sense,a mirror. Let's keep that in mind as we examine ourselves in light of the truth.
