06: What You Get Is Not What You See – Lesson Plan — 8 Comments

  1. d. Case Study: One of your friends states, “What does it mean the sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord? I thought we were all sinners. How can God hear our prayers unless we are righteous? Can He hear anyone? What makes the difference?” How would you respond to your neighbour and why?

    a) God hears everyone's prayers
    b) God only listens to the prayers of the righteous
    c) God listens to those who believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.
    d) none of the above

        • Hi Rachel,
          We could share with the neighbour that disagreed with us with the following points:
          1)I actually think that God 'hears' all prayers but he doesn't listen (pay attention) to all of them, he clearly says that he doesn't listen to those who are rebelling against him.
          2)God must listen to the prayer of the sinners otherwise how could they be saved? Read Ps 107, see all the different types of peoples in different types of trouble, some through no fault of their own, but when they cry out to the Lord, he hears them and saves them.
          3)However as we agreed this the best: God listens to those who believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.

          Rachel, I look forward to chatting with you again.

  2. Thanks for the suggested answer to the Case study Shirley.
    I need answers to the other Case study questions.

    • Hi Halleluyah, what a wonderful name. Here is the next one (thanks to Michael), what do think is the answer:

      Case Study: One of your relatives states: “How can a person handle a short temper? Isn’t that something they learn and develop from their youth? It seems like it would be like trying to change a person’s character.”

      a) Characters can't be changed
      b) People are entitled to be angry sometimes
      c) Jesus wants to change our character
      d) none of the above

    • Hi Halleluyah,
      Yes, Jesus does want to change our characters. Is that scary? Does that mean that he wants to control us?
      Some people thinks that Jesus only wants us to change what we do and say. But our real problem is what we feel & think so we need a new heart and a new mind which means a new character.
      At the beginning God created Adam & Eve with a good character, then they choose to 'know' good & evil and that was the problem. Jesus came to get rid of the evil and to do that we must be born again.
      This is the best news, we can start again with a new character that is good while still having our good qualities.
      Halleluyah, why don't you share your thoughts on the next case study and I will help if you have any questions.
