#391792 Is He Enough?

Posted by RSS Robot on 21 October 2014 - 07:21 AM

Looks like something from a cave’s wall – or modern art, but it’s not. It’s a photo from an electron micrograph of an ebola virus. Amazing that something that small has nations responding around the world. Scary, as headlines focus on death statistics as well as the number of people in quarantine. Those numbers grew exponentially, from a small family, through hospital contact and travel interaction.

Yet – in America one man was diagnosed, and died. Two people fighting the illness were brought from west Africa and were cured. Two nurses, infected while caring for the dying man, are being treated at the same facilities where two people were cured. Those statistics are pretty good, aren’t they?

While checking a number of resources to verify just how concerned we should be, within an hour’s drive from Dallas, I not only discovered we’re just fine (and so is everyone else) but learned from one of the patients.

I read a quote from “Ebola survivor Nancy Writebol, an unassuming Christian missionary”:
“The night that they put me on the airplane to evacuate me and bring me back to the U.S. … I was very, very ill and not sure that I was going to make it across the ocean — not sure if I would see David again or our [two sons] again,” Writebol said. ”And I remember, as they put me on the airplane, that I just told the Lord, ‘Lord, I don’t know what’s going to happen and I need your help.’”
And that’s when she said she felt God responding to her with an important question:
“Nancy, if I take the boys, if I take David away from you and if I take your life and you are with me, am I enough?”
What an answer! Is God enough at any time in our lives? I remember what Esau said to Jacob who offered riches as he returned:

And Esau said, I have enough, my brother; keep that thou hast unto thyself. (Genesis 33:9 KJV)

Or Isaiah’s description of those who never have enough:

Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter. (Isaiah 56:11 KJV)

What God offers is much more than enough:

But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. (1 Corinthians 2:9 KJV)

If God took our loved ones, and us, to be with Him, is He enough? Consider what He has offered?

If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him? (Luke 11:13 KJV)

Believing in Him, Nancy Writbol tells us:
“I just rested in God’s arms and in his presence and in his peace that he was enough,” she said.
Do we? No. We read headlines and are concerned for ourselves and our loved ones. We do not consider asking ourselves, is He enough? I believe He is when we follow His instructions:

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6-7 KJV)

#391799 Nonhuman "rights" Soon To Be A Reality, I Betcha

Posted by Ukulelemike on 21 October 2014 - 09:29 AM

True. If "Tommy" has the rights to be free, as it were, then maybe he doesn't want to go back to the jungles, maybe he wants to be free in Manhattan, or free to marry a supermodel and live in Rio, and attend the Sundance film festival each year. And of course, who will decide what Tommy's will IS?

 

This 'rights' thing is seriously getting out of hand. With the gay rights, and the children's rights, giving children who can barely wipe their own butts, rights to be treated and make decisions as an adult, this will nicely set up the paedophiles to demand to have sex and marry young children, after their 'partners' have been suitably molested and their wills broken, to agree. When I was a kid, I wanted to get a tattoo of the Incredible Hulk on my chest-I thought that was a great idea! Know why? because I was TEN YEARS OLD and I was stupid, like any ten year old is. They are no more capable of making good decisions than Tommy is of deciding where he wants to be. With rights must come responsibility, and the ability to take responsibility.




#391765 Mark Driscoll Resigns From Mars Hill Church For Social Failures – But Media S...

Posted by Ukulelemike on 20 October 2014 - 02:10 PM

Why be shocked that they would not mention his doctrinal errors, when they all agreed with them? Error wasn't why they removed him, rather because of, it seems, becoming somewhat of a dictator to his group. But the doctrines? The doctrines are why so many followed him in the first place-they have no issue with that.

If this is a problem, then how do stores get away with no shirt, no shoes, no service? Isn't that the same principle?

Has anyone noticed that when a moderator posts on this thread that it doesn't mean a thing?

As in - means nothing?

As in - your count is back to starting at nothing.

#391576 Way Of Life - Friday Church News Notes, Volume 15, Issue 42

Posted by John81 on 17 October 2014 - 07:01 AM

One of the points even well-meaning Christians often miss with regards to the unity issue is that Scripture speaks specifically of unity among born again followers of Christ. Scripture never says that followers of Christ should be in unity with the lost, or in unity with secular Christians, or in unity with Christians who are not following Christ, or in unity with unrepentant backsliding Christians.

 

Most of the calls for unity do not involve ways actual followers of Christ can be in unity. Instead, most calls for unity involve trying to get followers of Christ to yoke with the lost, with false religionists, with secular christians, and others Scripture not only doesn't tell us to be in unity with but actually tells us to separate from.

 

As with all things, we need to look first to Christ when it comes to the matter of unity. The very first question we should ask in considering matters of unity is "are they born again followers of Christ". If the answer is "no", then that should end the matter as there can be no true unity between the saved and unsaved, between light and darkness. If the answer would happen to be "yes", then there would be need to consider a few more key questions before deciding what the next step should be.

 

The main point being, for the vast majority of cases where unity is being called for, it's clearly unbiblical from the start because it involves the lost, in various forms, and therefore the idea should be readily rejected by born again followers of Christ.
