3 SEARCHING FOR THE TRUTH Answer Bible general Archive 4 EdB Mon 07/15/13, 10:15am 237499
  Being a doctor, nurse, researcher requires various talents and abilities. I believe these talents and abilites come from God for the welfare of man.
Further there is no prohibition in scripture against seeking medical care.

Many doctors and nurses give God the create for what they as medical practioners are able to do. So even they believe it is God's will for them to be serving man in this way.

I would question anyone's motive for saying you can't use doctors, nurses and medicine.
4 Life support, Yes or No? Answer Not Specified pjmacaz Fri 07/19/13, 10:14am 237530
  I am currently testing this sight as I have found it hard to find a sight that does not end up in debate over perspective. I enjoyed the responses here of love towards those who answered less than gracefully. So, Here goes. In 2003 I retired from mil/gov work on disability. I have been married up-to this posting; 33 years, 4 children and 11 grandchildren. In 2012 I was in a motorcycle accident that left me in a coma for about a month with a traumatic brain injury, shattered clavicle and 13 breaks in 10 ribs. While in the comma I developed several infections due to the punctured lung. I was placed on life support and my family was in debate and confusion over why it was being allowed. Prior to the accident I stated I did not believe in nor did I want, Life support. To see the blessings and the healing power of God through this ordeal I change my position on this. My family, friends, Pastor and brothers and sisters in Christ were by my side within 4 hours of the accident. In the coma, I heard their prayers as if they were coming from above. My view now is that God is in control and if He chooses to take you home, then man's procedures won't keep you here. If God chooses to keep you on earth, staying off life support won't contribute to your death. I do have limitations resulting from the accident, but I am ahead of the expected recovery time that the doctors predicted. Now my question to this forum is "What is your biblical view on life support when deemed medically required."

7 Life support, Yes or No? Answer Bible general Archive 4 EdB Fri 07/19/13, 12:57pm 237532
  The subject is not addressed in scripture but Scripture does stress the importance of life.

I think there are two situations one you addressed or lived through where life support was required to keep you alive while your body healed.

I think in this case life support is mandatory and required.

The other case is where to be the best of man's knowledge the body is not going to heal or improve. That the coma or vegetative state will be the person's state until death.

I think then this decision is the persons or his family.
Frankly I do not want to live if I'm not able to serve God (such as being in a coma). I would rather be home with Him and in His presence.
8 Life support, Yes or No? Answer Ps 71:6 DocTrinsograce Fri 07/19/13, 1:09pm 237534
  Hi, Manuel...

Welcome to the forum!

You have certainly been through a great deal of difficulties. Your testimony through these afflictions cause us to praise our Lord for His mercy and grace.

John Davis gives a good explanation for the basis on which orthodox Christians hold to the sanctity of life in the following article: http://www.ligonier.org/learn/articles/sanctity-life/

You are correct that any efforts to do something contrary to God's will is certainly futile. Nonetheless, we ought to remember that God in His providence employs the use of means. For example, in order for us to remain alive, He has provided us with air to breathe; and He has done so well in advance of our immediate need to take the next breath. It is interesting that He not only provides what we need, but He has created us to use those things. It would be a challenging thing to explain satisfactorially why the Creator chose to do things this way -- assuming that it might even be knowable (Deuteronomy 29:29). Nonetheless, in all these minute procedures that we participate in to remain alive, we do it to the glory of God (1 Corinthians 10:31).

Now if we function in this way relative to the mundane means of living day by day, would we not express our gratitude to our Lord by employing the extraordinary means God has provided through technology? If the commonplace is to be done to bring God glory, certainly the exceptional ought to be done to bring God glory.

Furthermore, if what we believe of the truth is not simply taught to others -- our family and the the world around us -- by what we say. It is taught most fundamentally by what we do. We believe in the sanctity of life; i.e., that life is something given us by God and for God. How we live our lives either affirms this truth or denies it. We certainly do not fear death, nor do we hope to avoid whatever affliction and pain God may intend for us. He is conforming us to the image of His Son. If He didn't spare His own Son, we certainly would not want Him to spare us bodily comfort! So my thought is that we should make use of the means He has provided for life, trusting that He will take us to Himself at the perfect time.

I hope that those thoughts will be helpful to you, sir.

Thank you so much for sharing with us!

In Him, Doc
9 Little Interior Acts of Adoration Note Deut 30:16 DocTrinsograce Sat 07/20/13, 1:37pm 237538
  "A little lifting up of the heart suffices; a little remembrance of God, an interior act of adoration, even though made on the march and with sword in hand, are prayers which, short though they may be, are nevertheless very pleasing to God, and far from making a soldier lose his courage on the most dangerous occasions, bolster it. Let him then think of God as much as possible so that he will gradually become accustomed to this little but holy exercise; no one will notice it and nothing is easier than to repeat often during the day these little acts of interior adoration." --Brother Lawrence (1614-1691)
10 With love speaking to one on wrong road? Note Matt 23:3 pjmacaz Sun 07/21/13, 12:55am 237540
  First, please accept prayer that recovery from whatever is causing you discomfort, be swift and complete. I am truly looking forward to your insight and the insight of others that have responded to others with wisdom and compassion. I can tell by the words you have written and the manner of the delivery that you are a person that loves the Lord and are educated in mind and spirit. Thank you for your answer.

I find that even with the prophetic, historical and archeological proofs of the bible's accuracies, there are those that still choose to ignore that all persons, born after Adam and Eve's fall at the Garden, were born separated from God. When I did a study today with my wife I found the word "unbeliever" translated differently in the NKJV, NASB and the NIV in verse 2 of Acts 14. In the Greek (strong's #544) it show a willful and/or disobedient choice not to believe. Your reference of Paul's discourse to the Philippians in chapter 3 is evidence that shows that it wasn't until his conversion and encounter with Jesus that he was able to honestly see the sin in his life and referring to all, education and training as "rubbish" compared to the "knowledge of Christ. When we look at 1 Timothy 1:13-15 and Titus 3:3 we can see a comparison of the old and new man.

I believe you are correct in articulating that man's need to take honest accounting for righteousness between Christ and oneself is more beneficial than between one another. Only then can we acknowledge the true nature of our sin and need for Christ and His atoning sacrifice in our lives. I pray for the educated when they encounter babes in Christ and future believers. I use to ask myself how could I truly be a Christian when I had such bitterness in my heart when I looked at certain people? It wasn't until my prayer was focused towards seeing those in gross sin as God does. With Love, Compassion and Hope of Repentance in their lives. May God Keep you and I look forward to your response.

11 God relenting based on person's prayer Note Not Specified Demaret Mon 07/22/13, 8:26pm 237610
  where are there other stories of God saying he was going to do something and then after that person's prayer God relents. I have Isaiah 38:1-6 already, where Hezekiah prays and God adds 15 years to his life after he told Isaiah to tell him he would die soon. Any others like that.

14 SEEKING FOR THE TRUTH Answer 1 Kin 19:12 EdB Thu 08/1/13, 1:15pm 237707
  Prayer, but most people are so busy talking or thinking of other things that miss the still small voice of God.
1 Kings 19:11-12 (NKJV)
11 Then He said, "Go out, and stand on the mountain before the LORD." And behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind tore into the mountains and broke the rocks in pieces before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake;
12 and after the earthquake a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice.

16 SEEKING FOR THE TRUTH Answer 1 Kin 19:12 DocTrinsograce Sat 08/3/13, 10:29am 237724
  Hi, Robert...

We conclude our prayers in Jesus' name because He is the sole mediator between man and God (1 Timothy 2:5) -- not simply because it is a traditional formula. It is through the atonement of Christ alone that we approach the throne (Hebrews 4:4-14), clothed in His righteousness. The Holy Spirit is actively involved in our prayers, for it is by His power that our hearts have been transformed to even desire God's will (Romans 8:13-14). Furthermore, the Holy Spirit interprets our fumbling prayers to those things that please the Father (Romans 8:26).

Now think about it a bit for yourself, and ask why it is we bring our supplications to the first Person of our Triune God, the Father.

In Him, Doc

18 Mark 7:19. Confusion Answer Mark 7:19 EdB Tue 08/6/13, 7:44am 237752
  The use of Parentheses in Bibles is most often used to provide a clearer understanding of what is being said. It is added by the translators and is not found in the original. Most passages that have parenthical additions can be read without the additions with no change of meaning or understanding.

I find no conflict with Mark 7:19 citation and Matthew 15:16-20 both are saying what goes into a man is eliminated. The Matt passage says what defiles a man is what comes from his heart.

The point of view expressed in Mark 7:19 is further backed up in 1 Timothy 4:1-5 (NASB)
1 But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons,
2 by means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron,
3 men who forbid marriage and advocate abstaining from foods which God has created to be gratefully shared in by those who believe and know the truth.
4 For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with gratitude;
5 for it is sanctified by means of the word of God and prayer.

To understand why the translators of NASB added this to Mark 7:19 you need to ask them directly. Contact Lockman Foundation by going to Lockman.org and at the bottom of the page is a contact drop down that will supply an address and phone number.

  Hello,

We have prayers of Abraham, Moses, and Jesus in our Bibles to read. Let me direct you to the passage where Jesus instructed his disciples to pray--Matthew 6:7-14. Perhaps this will help answer the question.
