Galations 2:20's Activity

  1. Galations 2:20 added a post in a topic Is It True In Your Church That Under 10 Percent Of....   

    Because they do not see themselves as one body, as brothers and sisters in Christ.  Or they are too busy watching others and not the Lord.
     
    However, if a church has enough funds what is wrong with paying for some things to be done?  Maybe it would be a blessing to a willing individual who needs extra money for bills and groceries.  Times are hard for many, including those who are serving the Lord.  Sometimes churches hold onto funds when it could be cast upon the water Ecc. 11:1.  Like a circle of blessing that would return to the church as well.

    There is a difference between dichotomy and trichotomy- NO SOUL.  NO HEAVEN.
     
     
    And YES dogs who attack  should be put down.  
  3. Galations 2:20 added a post in a topic Lets Talk About Pastors Children's   

    Preachers and their families are human- just like all people..... including you and I.  That is why we look to God and not man, amen!
  4. Galations 2:20 added a post in a topic Can God Do Anything?   

    God can do anything according to His will which is often different than what we think or desire to be done.  
     
    But God has not changed and miracles and healing do still happen.
  5. Galations 2:20 added a post in a topic Can We Reclaim This Dress Standard?   

    I have read these posts with interest.  Clothing is always an area of disagreement between well meaning Christian people.  Here is my two cents from what I have been able to spiritually discern from Bible study:
     
    Clothing is important to God:
     
     In the OT priests took great care of their garments and the law was specific in what they were to wear.  
     
    Both in the OT and NT there are specifics about clothing for both women and men so being repeated more than once it is important for both the law and age of grace.
     
     We are to honor God in all 1 Cor 10:31.  So if we keep God in mind, not ourselves, or others, we will want to please Him in all areas including our choice of clothing.  Certainly we cannot reach this perfection of pleasing Him in all this side of Heaven but our conscious does work or we would not be Christians and God has innately planted inside of us an inner voice to guide us in making choices, including our clothing.
     
     Now speaking for myself: the choice of what clothing to wear was not an area of first conviction.  Even though I was positionally sanctified my clothing choices did not line up best with God's Word until He convicted me of necessary changes to make.  
     
    To look at another just from outside we can come to inappropriate conclusions based only on  their outward appearance.  God knows the heart.
     
    Would it not be better to take an individual under your wing who may not be convicted in this area, clothing, and allow God to use you rather than look from a distance and pick them apart spiritually.  That was what was most helpful for me in many areas needing change was an individual who cared enough to expect my best for God not just what I felt like giving to Him.
     
    However, that being said- there are individuals who do not want to change in this area of their life placing a stumbling block for other Christians. Then it is up to a God fearing group of Christians led by a man of God who is willing to do the work of the God: pray, model, teach, and rebuke, allowing God's hand and timing to work in the situation in His will and way. 2 Tim 2:15, 2 Tim 3:16
     
    Honestly, there are just too many weak kneed leaders and Christians  not willing to change and flee from personal sin in their life which is just as distasteful to God as improper clothing.  Lets face it .... we all need much improvement in our Christian walk.

    Love the sinner but hate the sin.
     
    Really, God provides those opportunities in the world, but not of the world to witness and He waters as He will.  Discernment will tell us when to wipe the dust off our feet and move on:
     
    Matthew 10:14 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.
     
    (notice this verse does not say wipe the mud off from wallowing in sin to witness to another- it is wiping dust off the feet) 
  7. Galations 2:20 added a post in a topic Christians That Are Falling Easy Into This World Traps...   

    Every person (saved or unsaved) is pricked in their conscious and convicted of sin;  they either choose to be more Christ-like and flee the sin, suppress the truth, or be unaware of their sin because of a seared conscious.
     
    Our liberty should not be a stumbling block for a brother or sister in Christ.  
     
    1 Corinthians 10:31 Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God. 
  8. Galations 2:20 added a post in a topic Wed. Night Share What You Learned.   

    We learned about sinning in ignorance and how important it is to keep a short list with the Lord.  Great study because unconscious sin is a serious concern.  
     
    Lev. 4:1-4 is the first time an unconscious sin is mentioned in the Bible.
  9. Galations 2:20 added a post in a topic Looking For Opinions On Viewing Christian Movies At The Theatre   

    YES I agree.  
     
    A verse comes to mind:
    1 Corinthians 10:31 Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God. 
  10. Galations 2:20 added a post in a topic What Is A True Christian   

    Great verse G.S.
     
    1 Peter 4:16 Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf. 
  11. Galations 2:20 added a post in a topic What Is A True Christian   

    Acts 11:26 And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch. 
     
    Isn't this a representation of christian in a positive light?  This is happening within the church.
  12. Galations 2:20 added a post in a topic Can Your Kids Have Gay Friends?   

    God does place great opportunities in our path for witnessing as we are obedient to His will.  Often we do not even have to look for people to witness to as God is always out in front of us preparing the field so we can sow and He can water.
  13. Galations 2:20 added a post in a topic What Is A True Christian   

    YES, the word Christian is placed upon many worldly things today.  This makes a lot of things and works Christian in name only, but in reality have nothing to do with Christ.
     
    YES a Christian simply is one who has faith in Jesus and His shed blood on the cross for their sin and all sin.
  14. Galations 2:20 added a post in a topic Taken Your Children Out Of Christian School Can Be Good   

    The Bible says:  (For Israel) Their perceived righteousness was like unclean rags.  We can apply this today.
     
    Isaiah 64:6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away. 
     
    Romans 3:10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: 
     
    Children and adults do have the sin nature and sin as they make choices.  The Bible does not  ever say mistakes with excuses.
     
    And public schools are public and worldly.  I and our kids went through public school but if I had it to do all over I would have done differently for our kids.  My opinion is homeschooling is best.

    1 Corinthians 3:7 So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase. 
     
    We sow the seed often to those who seem not interested in hearing but God can work in any situation. God's Word never returns void.
     
     Love the sinner but hate their sin either neighbor would be a great opportunity.
