Friday: Further Thought – Gospel and Church — 7 Comments

  1. Notice what the first two paragraphs described?

    Natural law on exactly how God designed us. He designed us for adaptation. We actually are built incredibly, amazingly wonderful that based on the choices you make the behaviors that you engage in, the beliefs that you hold, the thoughts that you think, you will change yourself, your brain will re-wire, your neural circuits will change. The genes that are turned on and turned off will change expression. We are designed to change and adapt based on the free will choices that we make in governance of ourselves, that’s what’s being described here. We either by our choices by either co-operating with God’s agencies for healing and restoration or we are hardening ourselves against his agencies

  2. Notice what the first two lines of the last paragraph states?

    “All should be intelligent in regard to the agency by which the soul is destroyed. (Notice we should be intelligent) It is not because of any decree that God has sent out against man. (What??? God doesn’t sit in judgement and give a decree to destroy us? Wow that would be unintelligent to think that)

    How about us that are leaving comments here regarding the Sabbath School Quarterly lesson?

    Are we intelligent regarding the agency by which the soul is destroyed, because some in our church would teach us that it is God who destroys the soul, according to Mrs White however, that would be unintelligent.

  3. The way out from sin has been shown us since we chose to die (Adam and Eve)... It is a matter of choice! In physical therapy what we do with the members reflect on the brain... choosing to do good is also a way of sowing good seeds for others and for yourself... although it is necessary to balance the feeling that we cannot be saved by what we do, because this is for free!
    But, by choosing to be with Jesus we do the best choice we can in life!

  4. To restore a believer, is to lovingly talk to them confidentially about their problem. Let them know you have fogiven and Christ has forgiven. Then let the Holy Spirit do His work in the believers soul. You must still be there for your kind, loving, long suffering support. If you don't feel comfortable, step outside your comfort zone and do it anyway. Practice makes perfect as well as makes comfortable doing Gods work. Like Christ we must be about our Fathers business. Luke 2:49.

  5. Restore means to fix.
    Humans need their characters fixed/healed
    Is forgiveness enough?
    Is the death/blood of Jesus enough to fix or save?

    "Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
    For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life." Rom 5:9-10

    "Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;" Tit 3:5

    Notice Paul writes..."you who are spiritual" in Gal 6:1
