Men want so "see" instant results. They want to say a few words that will cause people to want to "accept Jesus" So they preach scary sermons to try to scare people into heaven. Preachers tell about an angry God who will send "unrepentant" sinners to a Hell where they will be tortured forever and ever. "Come to Jesus and escape the flames of hell."
This blog entry is a ... of my thinking about writing an article about what God is. That article will be found here.
Adult behavior is taking on the challenges of life and working through them through to completion ... Adults are constantly working through many challenges at one time
Immature behavior is only doing what is required.
To say that this earth is anything except how God planned it to be is to say that God is not in control, that God is not God.
Although my wife is mathmatically challenged she has been homeschooling our two children. My wife has been doing what she could, but she hasn't been holding my son to the line, making him work out all of his problems. Although I've told both of them repeatedly that my son needs to work out the problems completely, Joseph has still been mostly just writing down only the answers, not the answers with the formulas. A couple days ago I told my wife that I would take over working with my son and his math. I have been making him work out all his math problems and label everything correctly.
In the Bible it says, "we have the mind of Christ."
What is Christ? What does that mean? How does that practically work out? If Jesus "christ" as the son of God, and if God is love (as we are told), then could it be that the term "christ" is what refers to our motivation, our desire, our wanting to do what is right?
True religion is helping the widows and orphans in their distress. True religion is not true religion because it is call by a particular name. Just because a building or a group of people are called "christian" doesn't mean that they are true followers of God.
