New lesson - 28th October 2007

Hi Guys and Guyesses,

Here's this weeks discussion. Enjoy!

Lesson: We must try and Be Like God..

What is the best way to act towards other people? Aggressive? Nice? Couldn't care? Helpful?
God is pure, peaceful, gentle and friendly, full of compassion and good deeds – see James 3...
If we were to try and be like God, how would we be towards other people?
Do you guys talk about someone when they leave the room?
Do you always say nice things?
What should you say?
Pick out the guys good points; say something nice, like you would like other people to say about you.
Jas 3:7 We humans are able to tame and have tamed all other creatures---wild animals and birds, reptiles and fish. 8 But no one has ever been able to tame the tongue. It is evil and uncontrollable, full of deadly poison. 9 We use it to give thanks to our Lord and Father and also to curse other people, who are created in the likeness of God. 10 Words of thanksgiving and cursing pour out from the same mouth. My friends, this should not happen! 11 No spring of water pours out sweet water and bitter water from the same opening. 12 A fig tree, my friends, cannot bear olives; a grapevine cannot bear figs, nor can a salty spring produce sweet water. 13 Are there any of you who are wise and understanding? You are to prove it by your good life, by your good deeds performed with humility and wisdom. 14 But if in your heart you are jealous, bitter, and selfish, don't sin against the truth by boasting of your wisdom. 15 Such wisdom does not come down from heaven; it belongs to the world, it is unspiritual and demonic. 16 Where there is jealousy and selfishness, there is also disorder and every kind of evil. 17 But the wisdom from above is pure first of all; it is also peaceful, gentle, and friendly; it is full of compassion and produces a harvest of good deeds; it is free from prejudice and hypocrisy. 18 And goodness is the harvest that is produced from the seeds the peacemakers plant in peace.
Give me an example of a peacemaker – describe a situation where a peacemaker would do his thing..
What would you do at a school fight if you wanted to be a peacemaker?
- - - - - GETTING TO BE LIKE GOD - - - -
What do you do if you can't make a decision? Flip a coin? Phone a friend? Put it off til tommorrow?
What do you guys think of the WWJD bracelets?
Where does the WWJD thing come from? In His steps, by Charles Sheldon. Over 8 million copies sold.
What happens when we ask What Would Jesus Do?? No really. Seriously...
Here's what Jesus is like: Isa 42:1 The LORD says, "Here is my servant, whom I strengthen--- the one I have chosen, with whom I am pleased. I have filled him with my Spirit, and he will bring justice to every nation. 2 He will not shout or raise his voice or make loud speeches in the streets. 3 He will not break off a bent reed nor put out a flickering lamp. He will bring lasting justice to all. 4 He will not lose hope or courage; he will establish justice on the earth. Distant lands eagerly wait for his teaching."
So is Jesus aggro? Is he forceful? Is He fair? Is He a polititian? NO!! Does He ever give up? No, never.
Was Jesus worried about food or clothes or money or possessions? No. Did He always have enough? Yes.
We should be mirrors of God, so people of the world can see God in us; His character and kindness, etc.
2Co 3:18 All of us, then, reflect the glory of the Lord with uncovered faces; and that same glory, coming from the Lord, who is the Spirit, transforms us into his likeness in an ever greater degree of glory.
We need to become like Jesus, obedient to God, because this is where we find joy, satisfaction and acceptance.
WE NEED TO REALLY KNOW THE CHARACTER OF GOD, which does not change, so we know how to live.
Whenever we are faced with any tough decision, we need to ask ourselves “What would Jesus do if He was in this situation?” and then try our best to do that, regardless of the consequences.
What would Jesus Do?
What – really - would He do?

Discussion Oct 14th

14th October 2007
Lesson: A Lost World. What can WE do?
How much of the world's people is Christian ? About 2.5 billion ( a rough guess)
How many of these Christians are for real? Probably about a billion
Why is the world “LOST?” Because they don't know Jesus. We (Christians) are not of this world.
Joh 17:16 Just as I do not belong to the world, they do not belong to the world.
What must we do? Start trying to save your friends and family
Why doesn't God just come down and get people saved? He did....
Why doesn't God do miracles and signs in the sky to save people? Because they would explain it away – it's a weather phenomenon, it's tides, or winds, etc
Luk 16:27 The rich man said, 'Then I beg you, father Abraham, send Lazarus to my father's house, 28 where I have five brothers. Let him go and warn them so that they, at least, will not come to this place of pain.' 29 Abraham said, 'Your brothers have Moses and the prophets to warn them; your brothers should listen to what they say.' 30 The rich man answered, 'That is not enough, father Abraham! But if someone were to rise from death and go to them, then they would turn from their sins.' 31 But Abraham said, 'If they will not listen to Moses and the prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone were to rise from death.' "
Why are the people of the world so deceived and anti God's truth?
Joh 3:19 This is how the judgment works: the light has come into the world, but people love the darkness rather than the light, because their deeds are evil. 20 Those who do evil things hate the light and will not come to the light, because they do not want their evil deeds to be shown up.
2Co 4:2 We put aside all secret and shameful deeds; we do not act with deceit, nor do we falsify the word of God. In the full light of truth we live in God's sight and try to commend ourselves to everyone's good conscience. 3 For if the gospel we preach is hidden, it is hidden only from those who are being lost. 4 They do not believe, because their minds have been kept in the dark by the evil god of this world. He keeps them from seeing the light shining on them, the light that comes from the Good News about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God. 5 For it is not ourselves that we preach; we preach Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus' sake. 6 The God who said, "Out of darkness the light shall shine!" is the same God who made his light shine in our hearts, to bring us the knowledge of God's glory shining in the face of Christ.
Who is “The god of this world?”
What are your views of Harry Potter?
What phenomenon is being caused by Harry Potter? People, especially kids, are becoming more aware of the occult, of the darker side of the spiritual world. This is bad because the occult is anti-love, anti-acceptance, anti-compassion, anti-kindness, anti-security – it is the opposite, the inverse of God. It is everything that breaks society down, that breaks relationships down – and it's disguised as fairy tale entertainment. It's no fairy tale; it's a salivating monster crouched at our door. It's your right to open the door. Please don't. (Show letter from ex witch confirming that the names of demons in Harry Potter are real names of real demons, and other proofs)
2Co 6:17 And so the Lord says, "You must leave them and separate yourselves from them. Have nothing to do with what is unclean, and I will accept you.
Eph 5:11 Have nothing to do with the worthless things that people do, things that belong to the darkness. Instead, bring them out to the light.
What happens if you have a swimming pool full of perfume and you drop a dead rat in the pool. Will you use that perfume? Sin in your life is like that. It seems like a small thing, a little sin, but it pollutes your life. Keep your life pure: Keep FAR AWAY from anything occultic.
2Pe 3:14 And so, my friends, as you wait for that Day, do your best to be pure and faultless in God's sight and to be at peace with him. AMEN!!
God wants our help to save the people He loves.
We can be a light for them to follow
By Staying Pure and Having nothing to do with the things of darkness.
Let's DO IT !!

We're On-Line !!

Hi Teens,

Well, our blog is now on-line and operating. You can visit our website at http:\\ and read all the goodies there, and then click on the link on the website to bring you here to leave your comments, questions and suggestions.

Remember; no matter who you are, no matter what you've done - God loves you and wants to be your friend. We have to dump our pride (our dumb pride) and do things His way - otherwise nothing works.
