Need advice on defending a friend of mine about to be homeless, kicked out of the local mission...?
I know they have no good reason for kicking him out, so, I plan on giving this letter to the director John Roy tomorrow... Need advice...?
Think It's a good idea...?
Oh, and the director and the mission organization claims to be "Christian", and the director John Roy, is also a pastor/preacher...
Here's the letter:
Dear John Roy,
I would like to know why Tyler Stephanich is getting kicked out of the Mission on the first of this next month please...?
He is my friend, and I wish you knew what that means, but, anyway, he is my friend and I want to know "why" he is getting kicked out...?
He is "trying" his best to get out of there, he...
Over the last two to three decades this term has been used to draw people into these churches because they don't want to be connected to a denomination convention for good reason, since really when you think about it there are no denominations in scripture, however that being said if a church hires a pastor out of seminary which is not found in scripture as well, the theology of that seminary becomes the denomination for the church that pastor heads up.
Basically everything that man was taught at his seminary, he will be beholden to as he instructs his congregation.
The important thing for each one of us is does the message we hear line up with God's Word? Also never put your trust in any man but in Christ our Savior and his spoken...
What are the important things to learn as a Christian?
I have very little knowledge of my own religion, which is a shame... So I want to know, what should I learn and what should I study?
For example, which Bible verses should I learn? What is the history of Christianity? What are the most important teachings of Christ?
So recently in a post in the theology section someone had asked "Why does God let people be born who He knows go to hell?" or something along those lines. I had said He knows all how we think He does. To which many thought I was being unbiblical in my views.
So lets see what you think. So when we say "God knows when you will die and where you will go!" does that sound to confusing? If He knows this before you were born then you would not really have free will at all since your scripted to die at a certain point and scripted to go to heaven or hell. Which makes no sense.
So my view is yes, He does know everything. He knows how we die and where we go. BUT... He sees all possible endings. Not just one that is "going" to happen. For...
Bringing this over from another thread:
I am a woman who believes what is written in the bible, and I pop something on my head even in my private prayer time, as well as believe in male headship. However, I would love for once to see just one post teaching Christian men how to be Godly men...........the fact that in the more than 30 years I have known the Lord, time and time again I have heard sermons and seen posts concerning women submitting to husbands and covering heads etc, but almost nothing to teach men what God asks of them. It tells me that almost nobody understands what God requires of the men, since they never bring it up. It gets even more concerning especially when we consider that oft reminding is always needed on all...
first I want to remind you this verses matthew 19:7-8:
"7They said to him, “Why then did Moses command one to give a certificate of divorce and to send her away?” 8He said to them, “Because of your hardness of heart Moses allowed you to divorce your wives, but from the beginning it was not so. 9And I say to you: whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery.”
as you can see God explains hear that he sometimes said something wrong because he knew people would not except the truth if he gave it to them.
I think there are a lot of other cases like this. but that he didn't explain this yet because it was also in the time jesus was hear more than people were willing to except.
I will not name...
