All Bible studies are available for group studies or for helping individual employees in their quest to know Christ better. I now invite Christ to again take His place on the throne of my life. It wounds the nature of man and injures human solidarity... ( 80 )Sin is an offense against God... sin sets itself against God's love for us and turns our hearts away from it... In either case, it’s wise to seek counsel and pray, asking God what He wants you to do in the midst of this painful situation.

New Age has been seen, in some cultures at least, as the label for a product created by the application of marketing principles to a religious phenomenon. ( 49 ) There is always going to be a way of profiting from people's perceived spiritual needs. Turn my heart toward your statutes and not toward selfish gain. Help the men in your congregation become what God wants them to be by mobilizing a powerful men's ministry.

Verse 31 says, "While the word was in the king's mouth, there fell a voice from heaven, saying, O King Nebuchadnezzar, to thee it is spoken, The kingdom is departed from thee." The good news is that God wants to provide you with the very things you've longed for in a family, and he can do that in Christian community. None of us accomplishes very much without deadlines and deadlines always create a sense of pressure. The Furtherance of the Gospel - Part 2 - Philippians 1:12-18: The church has several ministries that minister to the Lord and His people, but the church has only one main ministry in the world.

Ichabod Baptist Church - 1Samuel 4:1-22: The history of Israel during this time is comparative the situation of many of our churches today. If their life is one extended yawn they are simply blind. But they will be able to enter into the body and soul of that person if the transgression has been deemed to be severe enough by the Lord. In whatever we do, we must line up with body life principles. They have matured in the faith and they know it. Hence, knowledge of certain things is a preventative from going astray or stumbling.

The Westminster Shorter Catechism of the seventeenth century said that the chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever. These councils declared that Jesus was both fully God: begotten from, but not created by the Father; and fully man: taking his flesh and human nature from the Virgin Mary. I'm sure that the men who blew themselves up in the hijacked airplanes thought they were doing the "godly" thing. Join us each week for a stress free and fun challenge with suggested activities around that week’s theme, along with discussion questions and Bible verses!

Use any jealousy you feel as your guide, it’s just showing you what you want in life. For all that is in the world--- the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life-- is not of the Father but is of the world. Eventually, the my stical student realizes that spirituality is not really about other dimensions and arcane powers.� It is only valuable in how it is applied to this world in our daily lives.� The old saying of being so heavenly bound that one is no earthly good applies richly to the spiritual journey.� Living one�s enlightenment on the mountaintop is easy.� Far more difficult and rewarding is living that enlightenment in society.� In the end, there is only one Creation, one universe, and one place where we all exist.� An important aspect of this plane of existence is that the path of truth abounds with paradox and dichotomy.� As Niels Bohr once said, when scientists encountered a paradox, it was great news, because wrestling with paradoxes was where scientific progress was made. [6] � As an analogy, suppose that I am a virtuoso violinist in this life.� On the other side, I do not lay down my violin but join a great symphony and learn to participate in making music that I could not produce by myself.� Ultimately, every one of us plays our part in Creation�s symphony, and although some of us may play solo leads at times, and some play kettledrums while others play the piccolo, every instrument is essential.� On the other side, we find ourselves playing music that we doubted was possible on this side.� The first ten seconds of the Isaac Brown case that my classmate worked opened my eyes in way that they could never close, and for the next decade I investigated the abilities of consciousness.� I cannot overemphasize that people need to seek their own experiences in these areas if they really want to know.� Reading or listening to the experiences of others may provide hints and help people attain greater insights, but direct personal experience is where knowledge comes from.� A month after taking the Silva class, I convinced a close friend to take it.� Reading auras became easy, and in his class we read everybody�s.� Some were spectacular, and I can still vividly see some of them in my mind�s eye, nearly 40 years later as I write this section in 2014.� I have had many psychic readings in my lifetime, and many were startlingly accurate and prescient, such as one channel that stated that I had a contract in this lifetime for a once-in-a-lifetime event that unexpectedly happened later the same day.� I had a psychic reading in the early 1990s by a Michael channel.� She read me as being emotionally-centered in this lifetime, and that reading has been a touchstone ever since.� We generally cannot read ourselves because our egos tend to distort the information, and I began that reading with no firm opinions about what my role, overleaves, and the like might be.� I had my guesses, but they seem to have been mostly incorrect.� After the reading, so much became obvious.� For instance, my soul role was a mystery.� Pursuing free energy can be an ego trap in many ways, as there is little �normal� about it, with perils and temptations far beyond most people�s wildest imaginings.� My days chasing after free energy radicalized me, and have been the center of my life�s orientation ever since.� Before that Michael reading, I thought I might be a warrior, server, or priest.� If anybody was the king in that situation, it was Dennis.� I was more of a knight, or even a squire.� The reading was done over the phone, and the only information that the channel had was a stack of photographs of people in my life, as asking about my relationships with them was my primary intent.� The reading was amazingly insightful and predictive.� But readings of my personality and soul were the most impactful.� When she said that I was an artisan, I was surprised, but later realized that my only possessions of note were my growing personal library, my music collection, prints of paintings, and other visual art.� It was all art.� I had already been doing some writing that led to this website, which is artisan work, and I performed system design at my day job .� It was all standard artisan behavior, but I could not see it until I was told.� One clich�, New Agey compliment is to be called an Old Soul.� Probably in the back of my mind, I thought that I might be an Old Soul, given my adventures and how I fared in them, becoming a grizzled veteran by age 30, and that part of the reading did not surprise me.� My writings comprise a classic Old Soul pursuit.� I once read that if artisans are �out of step� with their civilization, such as being an Old Soul in a Young Soul society, the stress of that situation can help inspire the most creative art.� If nothing else, I have keenly felt that stress .� There were too many accurate aspects of that reading to relate in this essay, but my earlier experiences showed how I was emotionally-centered.� I could be somewhat melodramatic in my youth, and I have had psychic readings that puzzled over why that was, and being emotionally-centered can explain it, as well as explain why I used the empathic technique for performing cases.� I would �wear� the head of those whom I was reading, and feel what they felt.� There are many other ways to do it, but that one worked for me, and was how I diagnosed the stroke condition in the first case that I ever performed.� The reason for performing cases is helping the person and sending them energy for their use.� The Silva training had many conditioning statements, and one was that such abilities should only be used for the betterment of humanity, and any abuse of those abilities would see the abuser lose those abilities.� I since learned that if people abuse their psychic talents, the karmic impacts become far larger than otherwise.� A soul can spend 50 lifetimes balancing the karma of one life of abusing their psychic abilities.� Those conditioning statements are for everybody�s benefit.� It is merely a spiritual version of the statement, �With great power comes great responsibility.�� If a person gains �power� that they cannot use judiciously, it can be a catastrophe, especially for their soul�s journey, although that comes with the risks of living on Earth.� Before long, I was tr ying hands-on healing, and the results could be spectacular, but my �failures� saw me give up most psychic activities for many years.� A person does not need to lay on their hands, and can perform long-distance healing, but being the room, mingling auras, and physically touching can intensify the experience and seems to make it more effective.� The first time I tried it, that I can recall, was in college.� My roommate got a lump on his arm.� He had it examined at the health center, and the diagnosis was cat-scratch fever, which is an infection of the lymph nodes.� The prognosis was not good.� The doctor was pessimistic, and told my roommate that they would likely have to surgically remove the lump.� He sent my roommate home with some drugs in a last-ditch effort to help cure the condition, but the doctor was not optimistic.� My roommate told me his prognosis, and I decided to try out hands-on healing.� For about ten minutes each day for the next week, I went to Level and laid my hands on the lump, and projected healing energy into his arm.� When he saw the doctor a week later, the doctor was shocked to see that the lump was nearly gone.� Many might credit the drugs, but in the realm of hands-on healing, those kinds of miracle healings are common, medical treatment or not.� The point is to heal the person, so if the medical treatment did it and the psychic part was �placebo,� then a good healer does not dispute that interpretation, but I have had many experiences since that first one that showed me beyond any doubt that the effect is real.

Philippians 3:12-14 - Even Paul, as mature as he was, did not consider himself to have achieved perfection (maturity) such that he could cease striving to improve. The second coming of Christ is the central event in Christian eschatology. How can we have the joy the Bible talks about when we feel unhappy? Unless otherwise stated, all text and images are the intellectual property of Alisha Gratehouse and are protected by copyright. In the 3rd century, Tertullian claimed that God exists as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit—the three personae of one and the same substance. [20] To trinitarian Christians God the Father is not at all a separate god from God the Son (of whom Jesus is the incarnation) and the Holy Spirit, the other hypostases (Persons) of the Christian Godhead. [20] According to the Nicene Creed, the Son (Jesus Christ) is "eternally begotten of the Father", indicating that their divine Father-Son relationship is not tied to an event within time or human history.

Those who wish to go deeper into the study of New Age will find useful references in the appendices. But as important as truth is in the growth process, it is not the information alone that transforms us. The righteousness of God is imputed to us through faith in Christ. At Saddleback, you do this by coming to know Jesus as your Savior, being baptized, attending our membership seminar (Class 101), and signing the membership covenant. These were generally exterminated by the central church in various genocidal wars. 1517 CE: Martin Luther attacked certain practices and beliefs of the Church, and the authority of the Pope.
