Day after day I come in here and see way too many Christians with weak discernment of God's word. I too was just like you and I wish there was someone who told me to study the bible, to believe in the bible and to trust the bible. Immature Christians need to stop looking at the bible through the world's glasses and start looking at it from a biblical perspective. We need to understand who God is and what are His attributes, we need to stop picking and choosing verses we don't like and take in His whole word from Genesis to Revelations. Understand who God is, what is His nature,what is His will, Why He always wants glory, what exactly is free will etc...... I beg of you Christians to study the word. You will see that the bible's way trumps anything and everything the world has to offer no matter how good and pure it may appear. The world is the devil's kingdom and NOTHING good without the true God can come from it.

I stand here as a testament and will prove to you NOTHING from the world is good. How can it be since only God is good and if God does not have a hand in it then how how can it be good? STUDY! STUDY! STUDY! Put on the full armor of God.

You can stand there as a testament for yourself, but please don't lecture us on how nothing in God's creation is good. Sounds to me like worshiping the map instead of where the map ends up.

This is a Christian forum, so you can expect Christian discussion.

We must begin to study the Bible to acquaint ourselves with the Lord; to learn to recognize His voice, determine His will, to establish and grow our relationship with Him.

What you speak is true, many are content with a general overview as interpreted by the world and by the pulpit. Unfortunately, those two avenues intersect far too often.

Each verse is as a cut diamond, with many facets. Many miss the facet which was cut for them in their times of need.

To grow in maturity is to grow in love through understanding. If you feel your Christian life is lacking, you can bet it is due to your missing out on the guidance which the Word has for you.

Day after day I come in here and see way too many Christians thinking that knowledge of God's Word is enough...they leave out prayer and the worth of the Holy Spirit. They condemn and judge.

First we must humble ourselves...then our Potter can make of us, His clay.

Can we stop the finger pointing already?
