#368784 Literature To Witness To A Jew?

Posted by Zed on 06 April 2014 - 09:37 AM

Isaiah chapter 53 is one.

A word of warning. Some Jews consider "God's Servant" from that chapter to be the nation of Israel, and their suffering throughout the centuries, and not a reference to the Messiah. I'm not saying I agree with them, I am just stating fact.

#365989 Storing Food And Supplies?

Posted by Zed on 17 March 2014 - 09:10 PM

 

Matthew 6:25-34
25Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?

26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?

28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:

29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?

31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

 

I wouldn't worry about it.




#365976 Lets Talk About Pastors Children's

Sometimes people have unreasonable expectations of pastor's kids... They're just kids. It's the father who was called into the ministry, not their sons/daughters.

#360207 Taken Your Children Out Of Christian School Can Be Good

Posted by Zed on 05 February 2014 - 08:49 AM

As my Dad pointed out, (DaveW is my dad, in case you didn't know) I was homeschooled.

 

However I am of the opinion that it doesn't matter so much where you school as long as you have a good foundation in God. You can go to a good Christian School and not get that foundation. It's up to the parents to ensure that their children get training in the ways of God. Their children can then use that training at a Christian or public school, or in their homeschooling and activities they do in public.

 

I personally am not against children being in the public school system. If they are supported and trained properly, they might even be a positive witness there. It will be hard, and temptations will be there, but that may strengthen them.

 

I'm not saying it's an easy situation, and every parent should definately seek the Lord's leading in this. The thing is homeschooling isn't for everyone. Not everyone can afford private Christian schooling. But every parent should make sure they give their children a solid foundation in God and His Word. Then, later in life, whether in a public school or in college/University/the workplace they can stand in their faith.

 

I guess what I'm trying to say is that it doesn't matter so much what type of schooling a child does, as long as they are getting spiritual support and training from their parents.

 

"Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6




#359721 Get Mad For Christ Is Not A Sin...

Posted by Zed on 01 February 2014 - 10:15 PM

It is the Word of God that is quick and powerful, not the word of men. Preachers should point to God's authority, not their own. The words of men are flawed. God's are not.


#344736 All Preachers Should Have A Conceal Weapon Permit

Posted by Zed on 25 September 2013 - 10:00 AM

I wouldn't say that you let someone do horrible things to your family. If someone wanted to harm my sisters or someone close to me, I would try to defend them. I'd just do so without a gun, and not with the intention of killing them.

 

The thing that rings warning bells for me is the attitude I see towards guns... I find it quite off-putting.

 

Also, the OP seems to be talking about getting a gun to defend yourself from threats caused by your teaching. That does not seem like an attitude found in the Bible, as others have already pointed out.

#339920 A Darth Vader Moment

Posted by Zed on 16 August 2013 - 09:01 AM

Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king.

I Peter 2:17

 

I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; for kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;

I Timothy 2:1-3

 

I would urge you to consider whether this is truly a Biblical attitude to have.

 

I would also urge you to re-read I Samuel 24 and tell me if God approves of disrespecting authority, even if they are un-Godly.

 

(Not that I approve of Obama, by the way, and we have our own leaders who make us cringe here in Australia, but still...)

Please, look again at what the Bible says. Be careful you are not twisting Scripture to say what you want.




#331227 Cursing And Swearing

Posted by Zed on 01 June 2013 - 07:14 AM

Being a youngster myself (I'm 19), and being in Australia (where swearing is considered almost normal vocabulary), I work with a lot of swearing going on around me. 

 

I've had a few people at work notice that I don't swear, and they know I go to church. Hopefully It's good for my testimony towards them.

 

I think it is one of the things that should set us apart from the world. As others have pointed out, the Scripture does talk about "letting no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth".




#330937 Bullies

Posted by Zed on 30 May 2013 - 02:20 AM

Cowardly? Was Jesus a coward?

Some people may perceive it as cowardice, but it is really meekness: power under control.

Is the person who punches back any better than the one who punched first? Do two wrongs make a right?

"Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, and pray for them that despitefully use you and persecute you."


#330926 Bullies

Posted by Zed on 29 May 2013 - 09:13 PM

Jesus didn't punch back his "bullies" when he was on the way to the cross did he?

 

That's what they were doing... They were bullying him both physically, and verbally (both horrible ways of bullying as the tongue can hurt more than the fist), and yet he didn't respond. In fact, he prayed "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do."

 

Jesus is our example, is he not?
