1 Stagnated spiritual growth Answer Bible general Archive 4 jlhetrick Tue 09/10/13, 7:29pm 237988
  I don't today but I have to admit that I do from time to time. Without exception those times are always preceded by being distracted from Bible study and allowing myself to be more focused on other things.

An interesting thing here is that if you look up the word "Stagnate" in the dictionary you will find "cease developing; become inactive or dull...' as part of the definition.

Ephesians 2:10 (ESV)
10†For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

We can only walk in them (the good works we were created for) if we know what they are. We can only know what they are by being in fellowship with God through prayerful study of His Word and having fellowship with other believers. I find that when I am feeling "stagnate" it's because I'm not giving proper attention to those things... every single time.
2 a whatsapp message (?)Answered Eph 4:14 azurelaw Fri 09/13/13, 8:22pm 238023
  In about 2 months' time, I have received the below whatsapp message (1st in Chinese, 2nd is this version) twice to my mobile by members of our church. It seems to me that it is pretty much widely spread among Christian circles. However, I refused to forward the message to anyone. I am posting it here is not that I agree with it, but to hope that we may have some discussion (with scriptural support) on it concerning if it (what part "yes", what part "no") is biblical. As I think we should be careful in reading this kind of message before sending it to anybody.

If you think it not worth/suitable for discussion on the forum, please feel free to delete it.

Thank you and


Please read this to the end.

My name is God. You hardly have time for me. I love you and always bless u. I am always with you. I need you to spend 30mns of your time with Me today. Don't pray. Just praise. Today I want this message across the world before midnight. Will you help ? Please do not cut it and I'll help you with something that you are in need of. Just dare Me ! A blessing is coming your way. Pls Drop everything and pass it on. Tomorrow will be the Best Day of your Life. Don't break this chain. Send this to 14 friends in 10mins.

Why Do we feel sleepy in Prayer,
But stay awake through a 3 hour movie?

Why are we so bored when we look at the HOLY BIBLE,
But find it easy to read other books?

Why is it so easy to ignore a msg about God,
Yet we forward the nasty ones?

Why are Prayers getting smaller,
But bars and clubs are expanding?

Why is it so easy to worship a celebrity,
But very difficult to engage with God?

Think about it, are you going to forward this?
Are you going to ignore it, cause you think you will get laughed at?

Forward this to all your friends.
80 percent of you won't forward this.

God said:
If you deny me in front of your
friends, I will deny you on the day of judgment:
When one door closes , God opens two : If God has opened doors for you,

send this message to everyone including me....

God has no BLACKBERRY but he's my favorite contact ... !!
He is not on FACEBOOK but he is my best friend .... !!
He is not on TWITTER but I still follow him .... !!
and even without the INTERNET I am always connected to him .....!!
He is not on WHATSAPP but he's always online .....!!
Forward this if God's been good to you ..
3 Thoughts on Reading the Bible Note Prov 16:20 DocTrinsograce Fri 09/27/13, 1:59pm 238105
  Bishop Kallistos Ware writes a very good article on "How to Read the Bible."

A summary of his points are:

(1) We should read the Bible obediently-- as divine command
(2) We should read the Bible ecclesially -- within the church
(3) We should read the Bible Christologically -- Christ centered
(4) We should read the Bible personally -- prayerfully and thoughtfully

See his complete article here:
4 how to explain the trinity Note Bible general Archive 4 DocTrinsograce Sun 10/6/13, 7:50am 238172
  You're right! I did err. I should have said, reason, Bible study, and prayer. Any of those that are lacking will yield nothing for God's Eternal Purpose, no matter what interpersonal skills one brings to bear.
5 Prayers of All the Saints Note Rev 8:3 DocTrinsograce Sat 10/26/13, 11:53am 238351
  "There is no question whether an event has happened because of your prayer. When the event you prayed for occurs your prayer has always contributed to it. When the opposite event occurs your prayer has never been ignored; it has been considered and refused, for your ultimate good and the good of the whole universe." --Clive Staple Lewis (1898-1963)

10 George Washington: Thanksgiving Note Ps 50:14 DocTrinsograce Wed 11/27/13, 12:50pm 238545
  "Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor, and Whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me 'to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.'

"Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, Who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be. That we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks, for His kind care and protection of the People of this country previous to their becoming a Nation, for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of His providence, which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war, for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed, for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted, for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge and in general for all the great and various favors which He hath been pleased to confer upon us.

"And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech Him to pardon our national and other transgressions, to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually, to render our national government a blessing to all the People, by constantly being a government of wise, just and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed, to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shown kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord. To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and Us, and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as He alone knows to be best." --George Washington (October 3, 1789)
11 Who di God listen to in Old testement? Answer OT general jlhetrick Mon 12/2/13, 10:20am 238568
  There wasn't only one person that God listened to. God heard the prayers of people and responded to them in the OT days as well as NT. My understanding of Scripture is that God never does what we want unless what we are asking for is in perfect agreement with His will. We do not persuade God to change His mind.

I have heard people speak of the account in Genesis 18 and 19 as God being "persuaded" by Abraham when Abraham advocated for the City of Sodom and "bargained" with God asking If God would spare the city if a certain number of righteous people could be found there. God had told Abraham that He would destroy Sodom due to itís sinfulness.

Abraham began the bargain by asking if God would spare the city if 50 righteous people were found. God did agree to spare the City if 50 righteous were found. On first reading it may appear that Abraham persuaded God to change his mind. However, we know that God knew exactly how many "righteous" people were there. Apparently Abraham assumed that 50 might be a high number in the sinful city so began to bargain the number down to 45, 30 and all the way down to 10, a safe number to include Lot and his family.

Abraham wanted to save his nephew Lot and Lotís family. What we finally see is that God used the opportunity to show Abraham (among other things) that God's will in fact would be done and no changing of God's mind would occur. God did destroy Sodom though He did spare Lot and his family all but Lot and his daughters. We can conclude, from the wider context of Scripture, that God intended to spare Lot and in fact was the one persuading Abraham to pray for it hence, the visit to Abraham in the first place.

14 prayer shawl Answer Acts 11:19 EdB Mon 12/16/13, 7:24am 238688
  First a prayer shawl is used to cover the head of a person that entering into the presence of the Lord to pray. This was a Jewish custom that requires the person should cover his head to pray.

This practice was carried forward into the Catholic church also.

A prayer cloth is taken from Acts 11:19 where handkerchiefs were taken from Paul and given to the sick and the sick were healed.

Some teach it is a touchpoint of faith that allows a persons faith touch something tangible thus increasing their faith.

However it is very easy to allow oneself to treat a prayer cloth as a talisman, or with an unstated idea the power comes from the cloth instead of the Hand of God.

This can be very dangerous because people are putting their trust into what they can see or handle instead of having faith.

It also comes very close to putting something other than God ahead of God.

Some use prayer clothes as a way to convey one's assurance that they are praying faithfully for another that isn't able to be present.

  I have been posting a gratitude list for a few weeks now and last nights list i said that I'm grateful that i am starting to understand what i'm reading in the bible. so when my friend commented that she was proud of me, i wondered if it could be taken as boasting. under her comment i posted this is only Gods doing, not my work but a gift from God. in my list i said thing about my understanding and the gratitude i have for other believers that i don't have to be perfect in my prayers or how I ask questions, that no one is good at something when they begin. i just hope this is ok. that posting things being unsure if they are correct or if they will be taken the right way. i'm considering keeping a private log of my journey. but on the other hand i want people to see Christ working in me. advice would be appreciated
