It is always easier and less awkward to talk with people that you already know, as in a friendship. Advantages of Using This Method – There are advantages to this method as well. Generally speaking, your friends probably trust you more than they would trust a Bible-thumping stranger.

There is no reason why celebration cannot be included in that, but worship in God is a time to be silent, reflect on your life and pray for help of others. “Joyful” and “Lively” can stand for completely different meaning for different people. While “joyful” worship for some may be singing hymns, receiving Holy Communion or even just praying to God; others may define “joyful” as speaking in tongue or just enjoying God freely without a set form of worship. Then the answer to “Should Christian worship always be joyful?” must surely be yes. As joy is the basis of worship to worship God, to receive and give joy.
Purpose Sanders’ Spiritual Leadership begins with an initial assumption that readers are looking to begin or strengthen their leadership skills as it relates to the ongoing work of God in the world and through the body of Christ. He takes the readers through many examples of sacred and secular attributes of what leadership looks like and provides examples of various styles. The quest to become a leader, or better leader, is a good one, yet Sanders does not want to give a false impression of the realities of spiritual leadership. The needs, responsibilities, cost and perils of leadership are plainly put forth to be straight forward with the reader of all that could and will be required of spiritual leadership positions. Believing that God is searching for leaders to bring about changes on the earth, he begins the book by highlighting the principle: true greatness, true leadership, is found in giving yourself in service to others, not in manipulating others to serve you, admonishing, “we must put more into life that we take out," and that history will only remember a man for "the quality of his deeds and the character of his mind and heart" (15).
However some people may disagree with the statement as firstly, there are many other stories in this gospel which show many other important teachings and messages as this one for example the calming of the storm which teaches us that although you may think god is not present or awake he is always with you and whether you live or die you will ultimately be safe with god if you have faith, also the calming of the storm is yet another story which portrays Jesus has power and authority over nature. Secondly there may be more appropriate gospels for others besides that one such as when Christ died for our temptations and sins which proves we are tempted to do things we shouldn’t. Thirdly every story in the gospel has a teaching to it and nobody should follow one more than another as they are all very significant to Christians. , I agree with the statement as Jesus was showing authority over Satan this shows Christians that if we have faith we can overcome temptation as Satan represents temptation in this
While there are many people who do not stray or question their faith in God or Jesus Christ, there are still also many that do continue to retain doubts. Doubt is not fully a bad thing with faith because it is a person trying to make logical sense of the stories and teachings by weighing evidence, and in turn doing further research to which gives us a deeper understanding of our faith and belief. Doubt helps keep us from making fast judgements or conclusions, poor choices, trusting inconsistent people or sources and much more. Doubt is not always an enemy of faith, but it is seen as negative attitude or action by some because it instils the idea of a nonbeliever or weakness in faith. b. Biblical Foundation Biblical faith is belief, trust, or commitment in God through the Messiah, Jesus Christ.
Moreover, Whitney challenges us to consider that godliness is the objective of the disciplines. Therefore, we are to approach them with gladness and not toil. The disciplines discussed in Whitney’s book are: Bible intake (one and two), prayer, worship, evangelism, serving, stewardship, fasting, silence and solitude, journaling, and learning. Many other disciplines have been debated by other authors, but
The vision needs to be so clear, and the body needs to unite as one towards the goals of that vision, otherwise it will just fail. I love the clarification Pue gives on self-awareness. I think we’re ingrained as church leaders to be hesitant when anything tells us that we need some kind of focus on ourselves. I know I was hesitant when I first saw the title of
A critical view of person-centered therapy A counselor is often viewed as a good model of what it means to be wise and the patient’s friend, a person with great capacity to listen and be respectful. Perhaps this is one of the reasons that person-centered therapy has been so warmly embraced within significant portions of the religious community as it appears to give us valuable clues and guidance on how to respond to those in misery and distress, or better said “love the brothers and sisters.” In comparison with other theories of counseling and psychotherapy there is none to embrace the full manifestation of the humanistic spirit in contemporary psychology than the person-centered theory, and perhaps no single individual better embodied its essence than its founder, Carl Rogers. Person-centered therapy asserts that the client, not the therapist, should be at the heart of psychotherapy since only the client has the resources by which to become more aware of and remove his or her obstacles to personal growth. It is significant to know that Carl Rogers grew up in a fundamentalist Christian home and rejected the faith of his parents during college in favor of “Liberalistic Humanism” (Van Belle, 1985b, p. 1016). Person-centered therapy warmly embraces a number of key values (adapted from Korchin, 1976, pp.
Religious people do many things to help the victims of war, but also have reasons for doing so. Christians may help victims of war because it states that they should help victims of war, good or bad in their religious book the bible. "Do for others what you want them to do for you" (Matthew 7:12). This quote tells us Christians may want to help war victims because on another day they might need someone else's help. Another way of interpreting the quote is that whoever the person is they deserved to be helped, as the religious person could be in the same position.
