  1. [quote="Seth Doty"][quote]The question is: How is God involved in the process of decision making?" Now, God's will is expressly made clear in Scripture. However, the prevailing view today of Christians is that God has a special blueprint for our lives, and that blueprint must be sought out because God just doesn't show it to use. So Christians "pray and seek God to show them His will." There isn't a Biblical foundation for this kind of thing. People say they "feel led of the Spirit" to do such and such. But in saying this, they're abusing Scripture. The Spirit empowers us to live Holy Lives, u
  2. [quote="Seth Doty"][quote]I'll get back to this later, but you're taking several of these verses out of context, and taking descriptive passages as being prescriptive.[/quote] If you don't want to ask the Lord about any decision before you make it that is between you and God, but it does speak of a poor understanding of the character of God and the working of the Holy Spirit in a believers life. I hope you do not hold a deist position. Belief that the Lord will hear and respond is one of those fundamentals you can't even get saved without. [color=#0000FF]"Hebrews 11:6 But without fait

  4. That was painful. I couldn't watch it all.
  5. [quote="joyfulpraise93"][quote="Will"][quote="joyfulpraise93"][quote="Will"]There's no Scriptural justification for this.[/quote] Over and over God shows us in His word that he cares about each decision that we make...big or small. Casting ALL your cares upon him...if someone is concerned about whether something is a good decision or not, then that is a care and He invites us to cast it upon him. It's not right to criticize someone because they prayed about a decision. I have been amazed to hear many stories in my life of Christians who were about to do something and prayed and changed th
  6. But there's no Scriptural Justification for this idea. We are to use the wisdom and judgment that God has given us. Anecdotal stories are nice, but they don't do in place of Scripture.
  7. Why don't you talk to American troops who have trained with people forced to be in the military. They're a shoddy lot, incapable of keeping up with our boys, and constant whiners and complainers. Besides, there's no Constitutional justification for the nonsense that you spouted.

  9. Well, simply put, I think that God's Will generally has little or nothing to do with internet message board. God's Will is that we live for him on a daily basis. We don't have to pray out whether or not we should join a certain message board, let our kids play in Little League, or what newspaper we should subscribe to. Those are matters where we simply exercise the judgment and wisdom that God has given us.
  10. [quote="Crushmaster"]I found it when I was Google searching for an Independent Baptist site. I soon found OB and, after some praying, decided to join. :wink I've very much enjoyed my experience thus far, and I am sure I will continue to. God bless, Crushmaster.[/quote] Internet magics. s You prayed to decide whether or not to join? How odd.
  11. A false dichotomy. Many of the greatest scientists who ever lived were also Christians or at least religious in some sense.
  12. [quote="dwayner79"]Matt, Remember the debate that was done a while back. Calvinism right? a few select people with opening statements, rebuttals, etc. Is that still around to read, and where you planning on doing that again? Just remembered it, and thought I would bring it up.[/quote] Debates? Interesting.
  13. [quote="candlelight"]Oh...Will, you always crack me up. :lol: How are you?[/quote] I'm doing just fine. And you?
  14. The Shack is emergent garbage. I wouldn't line the parrot cage with it.
  15. Kingdom of the Cults is good. Two Babylons however, is rather awful, and full of half-truths.
