2 Honoring God in All Things Note Ps 35:15 EdB Tue 12/27/16, 5:46pm 244057
  A true and pure spirit seeks to worship God for God is spirit and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.
3 Though Knowing Men Disobey Note Rom 1:32 EdB Tue 12/27/16, 5:33pm 244055
  The tragedy is many men do not know the voice of God. Many know God but have not developed a relationship with God so that they know His voice. To many God is distant and unreachable. To others He is close and constantly present. An ever present help in time of trouble.
4 All in Things in Prayer Note 1 Thess 3:10 EdB Tue 12/27/16, 5:29pm 244054
  Yes prayer is two way communication with God. If God is not present in prayer why do it? I am sure Paul was well aware of that, since Paul was intimate contact with God.

How sad if you have never heard God speaking to you in prayer.
I pray that one day you will hear Him clearly speaking to you.
5 Though Knowing Men Disobey Note Rom 1:32 DocTrinsograce Tue 12/27/16, 5:18pm 244053
  "The tragedy of life and of the world is not that men do not know God; the tragedy is that, knowing Him, they still insist on going their own way." --William Barclay (1907-1978)
6 Honoring God in All Things Note Ps 35:15 DocTrinsograce Tue 12/27/16, 11:17am 244052
  "A pure, sincere, and stable spirit is not distracted though it be employed in many works; for that it works all to the honor of God, and inwardly being still and quiet, seeks not itself in any thing it doth." --Thomas à Kempis (1418)
7 The Ephemerality of this Life Note Ps 103:15 DocTrinsograce Tue 12/27/16, 10:49am 244051
  "The present life of man, O king, seems to me, in comparison of that time which is unknown to us, like to the swift flight of a sparrow through the room wherein you sit at supper in winter, with your commanders and ministers, and a good fire in the midst, whilst the storms of rain and snow prevail abroad; the sparrow, I say, flying in at one door, and immediately out at another, whilst he is within, is safe from the wintry storm; but after a short space of fair weather, he immediately vanishes out of your sight, into the dark winter from which he had emerged. So this life of man appears for a short space, but of what went before, or what is to follow, we are utterly ignorant. If, therefore, this new doctrine contains something more certain, it seems justly to deserve to be followed." --Venerable Bede (672-735) of the Kingdom of Northumbria of the Angles
8 All in Things in Prayer Note 1 Thess 3:10 DocTrinsograce Tue 12/27/16, 10:15am 244050
  Prayer is God speaking? Oy. I wonder what Paul would have thought of that!
9 All in Things in Prayer Note 1 Thess 3:10 EdB Tue 12/27/16, 10:09am 244049
  Advice of a book seller? An Author?
I wonder if Paul or Jesus were given the choice between time spent in prayer a book, which would they chose.
If I may be so bold to offer an opinion I would say they both would chose prayer. Especially knowing God would meet them there.

I can understand why some would find a book an alternative to prayer if their prayer is only one eay because they deny the Holy Spirit still speaks to the heart of man. How sad!
10 All in Things in Prayer Note 1 Thess 3:10 DocTrinsograce Mon 12/26/16, 9:29am 244048
  "Sometimes we hear it said that ten minutes on your knees will give you a truer, deeper, more operative knowledge of God than ten hours over your books. 'What!' is the appropriate response, 'than ten hours over your books, on your knees? Why should you turn from God when you turn to your books, or feel that you must turn from your books in order to turn to God?'" --Professor Benjamin B. Warfield (1887-1921)
11 Slanders are among us Note Prov 16:28 EdB Mon 12/26/16, 8:06am 244047
  A kindergarten class had been singing “Be careful little tongue what you say.” After the teacher had explained further to the children why it is so hard to control the tongue, a little boy waved his hand for permission to speak. “I know why it’s hard to make the tongue behave. It’s because it’s in such a slippery place!”
Proverbs 16:28 warns, “A whisperer separates the best of friends.” In the letter to the Romans, where Paul is describing the depravity of the human heart, he speaks of men as backbiters, haters of God, and “whisperers.” In both the Hebrew and Greek, “whisperer” means “talebearer, slanderer, attempts to deceive by falsehood.” “The whisperer speaks all languages, wears all kinds of clothing, is a citizen of all countries, belongs to all political parties, moves in all circles, and is a member of all churches.”

12 Life of Jesus Note Luke 2:41 EdB Mon 12/26/16, 8:02am 244046
 
More to the Christmas Story

And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.
Luke 2:52

Recommended Reading
Luke 2:41-52
When reading the Christmas story in Luke 2, we usually stop halfway through the story, with Jesus still in the manger. But the last half of the chapter talks about what happened when Jesus was eight days old (verse 21); forty days old (verses 22-38); during His childhood (verses 39-40); when He was twelve years old (verses 41-50); and as a teenager and young adult (verses 51-52). That last verse—Luke 2:52—is our goal for our children—that they will mature as He did: mentally (in wisdom), physically (in stature), spiritually (in favor with God), and socially (and men).
Excerpt from Dr David Jerimiah Today's turning point.
13 Wesley on Experiantialism in the 1700s Note 1 Cor 14:32 DocTrinsograce Sun 12/25/16, 8:24pm 244045
  "I plainly told them [the enthusiasts] the utmost I could allow, without renouncing both Scripture and reason, was that some of these circumstances [mystical experiences and supernatural manifestations] might be from God (though I could not affirm they were) working in an unusual manner, no way essential to either justification or sanctification; but that all the rest I must believe to be the mere empty dreams of an heated imagination.

"Try all things by the written word, and let all bow down before it. You’re in danger of enthusiasm every hour, if you depart ever so little from the Scripture: yea; from that plain, literal meaning of any text, taken with the context." --John Wesley (1703-1791)
14 Sanctification Defiined Note Heb 12:9 DocTrinsograce Sun 12/25/16, 7:26pm 244044
  "Christian maturing describes that aspect of growing up that begins at the new birth and is dependent at every stage upon the action of the Spirit through the grace of God. Becoming mature in Christ involves both the deepening of our relationship with him in repentance, faith and obedience and the transforming into his likeness, which will include our thinking, behaviour, attitudes, habits, and character. Together with growth in the knowledge of God and his truth, there should be a development in capacity to distinguish between good and evil. The supreme glory of this maturing is the increasing ability to love and be loved in our relationship with God, the Church and the world. This transformation is accomplished by the action of the Holy Spirit, using the means of grace (worship, sacraments, prayer, preaching, Bible study, etc.). The Holy Spirit brings people to Jesus our Lord and changes them into his likeness 'from one degree of glory into another' (2 Cor 3:18). This is the high calling of all God's people and should be seen in the context of God's wider plans for creation (Rom 8:19-23)." --The Nottingham Statement H1 (1977), from the 2nd National Evangelical Anglican Congress
15 Difference truth versus doctrine of man Note Acts 16:17 EdB Sun 12/25/16, 7:13pm 244043
  There is a vast difference between being harassed for preaching the Gospel. And being called out for teaching doctrine of men.

The woman followed Paul and correctly stated he was teaching the way to salvation. It was not a doctrine of man but the truth of Jesus Christ. As long as people do not add to scripture the doctrine of man there isn't a problem.

16 High View of Scripture Note Deut 29:21 DocTrinsograce Sun 12/25/16, 11:26am 244041
  Dear justme,

The phrases high or low view of scripture is a theological term, not a point of characterization or criticism. People of either persuasion may very much love the Word. A high view of scripture is how we describe denominations who hold to all the doctrines of sola scriptura. A low view of scripture is how we describe denominations who have some other authority that they hold as having equal or greater place for binding their consciences. This can be many other things from a formal magisterium to personal experience.

I don't quote people so much as someone with whom I share all doctrine, or because they are particularly pious... rather, when people express and expose the Word of God in a particularly perspicuous fashion, they are worthy of being quoted. After all, in church history there have been so many who have laboured in Bible study and teaching... far beyond what I have done. Consequently, I am proud of this wonderful treasure (Eph 4) given to us by our Lord... if I were to always express my own thoughts: it would reveal great hubris; and it would be of far less value.

In Him, Doc
17 The Visible Struggle Note 1 Tim 5:10 DocTrinsograce Sun 12/25/16, 10:57am 244040
  "For how soon that ever the Spirit of the Lord Jesus (which God's elect children receive by true faith) takes possession in the heart of any man, so soon does he regenerate and renew the same man; so that he begins to hate that which before he loved, and begins to love that which before he hated. And from thence comes that continual battle which is betwixt the flesh and the spirit in God's children; while the flesh and natural man (according to their own corruption) lust for things pleasing and delectable unto the self, grudge in adversity, are lifted up in prosperity, and at every moment are prone and ready to offend the Majesty of God (Rom. 7:15-25; Gal. 5:17). But the Spirit of God, which gives witnessing to our spirit, that we are the sons of God (Rom. 8:16), makes us to resist filthy pleasures, and to groan in God's presence for deliverance from this bondage of corruption (Rom. 7:24, 8:22); and finally, to triumph over sin that it reign not in our mortal bodies (Rom. 6:12)." --The Scottish Confession of Faith (1560) 13.2
18 High View of Scripture Note Deut 29:21 EdB Sun 12/25/16, 9:57am 244037
  Let me further clarify. There are many things in Catholicism that I do not agree with. I see it as their flawed interpretation of scripture just as I see the things in other denominations that I do not agree with I see it as their flawed interpretation of scripture. Is that saying I have a perfect view or interpretation of scripture? No I am sure my view is flawed also but hopefully not as flawed as some of these other interpretations.

Again I do not defend or agree with Catholicism in many of their doctrines but I believe they believe their doctrine is scripture supported.

20 High View of Scripture Note Deut 29:21 EdB Sun 12/25/16, 9:44am 244035
  Let clarify! If we look at the documented doctrine of the Catholic Church, as published in their catechism what is there that is outside scripture?

Yes the Pope being mere man may have personally said something outside the Bible. But when he is speaking to set church doctrine his words are carefully checked by many others to insure they are within the boundaries set by scripture. Or at least that is my understanding of Catholicism. If it is wrong then I would like to know where they strayed outside their interpretation ( which Sola Scriptura allows) of scripture.
