New discussion - 17th Feb 2008

Hi Guys - new discussion - enjoy!

Lesson: Who do you listen to?
If a doctor of climatology or a professor says that we have a problem with global cooling, do you believe him?
If you meet a university professor at Woolworths, and he says that you need to change your hair, will you?
Should we listen to people with degrees and big qualifications and get our advice from them?
Is a professor clever?
Is a doctor, a state president, a Hollywood Celebrity, a pastor, a teacher, a headmaster; CLEVER? Usually NOT!!!
What makes a person clever?
What makes a person wise?
Pro 14:6 Conceited people can never become wise, but intelligent people learn easily. 7 Stay away from foolish people; they have nothing to teach you. 8 Why is a clever person wise? Because he knows what to do. Why is a stupid person foolish? Because he only thinks he knows. 9 Foolish people don't care if they sin, but good people want to be forgiven.
1Co 3:18 You should not fool yourself. If any of you think that you are wise by this world's standards, you should become a fool, in order to be really wise. 19 For what this world considers to be wisdom is nonsense in God's sight. As the scripture says, "God traps the wise in their cleverness"; 20 and another scripture says, "The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are worthless." 21 No one, then, should boast about what human beings can do. Actually everything belongs to you:
What is real wisdom?
Pro 1:7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but the foolish despise wisdom and instruction.
What kinds of people SHOULD we be listening to? Those who have the wisdom of the Lord.
How can you tell whether a person speaking on TV or at school or work is someone worth listening to?
Check the following: Are they kind? Are they gentle? Do they brag or show off? Do they talk about Jesus or the God of Israel? Are they humble? Do they listen to what other people have got to say? Are they LOUD or quiet? Do they have self-control? Do they say nasty or cutting things about other people ie. Do they diss others? Is he telling the truth, as far as you can tell? Is he an honest person?
If you had a big problem and needed direction and guidance, who would you go to?
Why would you go to that person?
Who would be the LAST person you would go to for help? Why?
So what do you look for in a person to give you advice?
Isn't this just what the Bible tells us to be like? Yes it is. If we all live like the Bible (ie Jesus) tells us to, we could give other people good advice, and they would actually ask us for it... Go figure..
Why are parents good people to go to for advice? Because they did the same stupid things that you want to do, and they can tell you exactly what happens if you do those dumb things. Don't copy your parents' mistakes – break the circle!!
Bertram Russel said: “ The big problem in the world is that fools have such confidence, and the wise have such doubts.”
Have you noticed how many morons are in leadership positions??
Let's name some people that you can listen to and get sense out of them. There are not many.. Kenneth Meshoe, Patrick Lekota has some character, Tony Leon has about 20% sense, Shaun Pollock, Victor Matfield, Francious Steyn, Freek Robinson seems to be fairly OK, Hal Lindsey, Jack Kinsella, Benjamin Netanyahu, Dr James Dobson, Ryan Dobson, Walker Texas Ranger & his sidekick.
Some people you must NEVER believe: Mike Sutcliffe, Dbn muni, Zuma, Marthinus van Schalkwyk, Haziz Pahad, 95% of the ANC, most of the United Nations, Kofi Annan (ex UN Gen.Sec) , any muslim (since their Koran permits them to lie to non-muslims), the Clintons, Jimmy Carter, Nancy Pelosi, Al Gore, (in fact most of the American Democrats), Albie Sachs, any Hollywood celeb, our council esp. the mayor, and so on.
What is our best source of advice we will ever find? The Bible, esp. proverbs, galatians and Ephesians.
And finally: Do you know how lucky you are to NOT have a movie house here in Vryheid.??!!! The reel stoopid messages you get from movies make your lives very difficult. Movies and TV should be the absolute LAST place to get guidance from. Why? Because the Hollywood movie and TV industry is 98% humanists, who believe that there is no hell, no reason to be good. Look after yourself – you are No. 1 in the universe. You are a god to yourself. Bad, Bad news these ous.

Discussion of 10th Feb

Lesson: Dealing with the Morbs
Who has felt depressed or sad or morbid before?
How do you guys deal with the Morbs?
In the Bible, Ahab the king, Jeremiah, Elijah, Daniel and David were all depressed at one time or another.
Are there good and bad reasons for becoming depressed, or only bad reasons?
Being depressed about your sins is probably not a bad thing
Being depressed over your friend having a better cellphone than you is very bad!!!
OK, how do you get undepressed ?
What type of positive things must you think?
Verses from the Bible,
Psa 59:10 My God loves me and will come to me; he will let me see my enemies defeated.
Joh 16:27 for the Father himself loves you. He loves you because you love me and have believed that I came from God.
1Th 1:4 Our friends, we know that God loves you and has chosen you to be his own.
Get to know God's character; how much He loves you and looks after you.
2Ch 30:9 The LORD your God is kind and merciful, and if you return to him, he will accept you."
Joe 2:13 Let your broken heart show your sorrow; tearing your clothes is not enough." Come back to the LORD your God. He is kind and full of mercy; he is patient and keeps his promise; he is always ready to forgive and not punish.
and also this list of stuff.. (Hand out paper and pens...)
I have the following: Write down what you have to be thankful for..
a bed to sleep in A cellphone A pet Parents who love me Money eyes to see with Airtime A friend food Legs to walk with Music Arms that work water to drink air to breathe taste a house to live in Time A toilet (How many people do not have a toilet of any kind..) electricity running water A hot shower/bath an education TV and radio smell clothes to wear a Bible to read A garden to chill in A pool God's salvation can speak A Teen Church!! A job a fridge An indoor stove! Shoes teeth hair safety
Millions upon millions of people do not have even the basic things in life. So be grateful and thankful.
Does God love you? Why do you say that?
If God loves you and cares for you, do you have any reason to be down or depressed?
Surely then everything is under His control?
Heb 13:6 Let us be bold, then, and say, "The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid. What can anyone do to me?"
Joh 14:27 "Peace is what I leave with you; it is my own peace that I give you. I do not give it as the world does. Do not be worried and upset; do not be afraid.
Is being happy good for you? YES!!
Pro 17:22 A merry heart does good like a medicine, but a broken spirit dries the bones.
What can we be happy about? Give me lots of suggestions...
that we're alive. That we're together having fun. That God loves us.
What does this Bible verse mean: 1Th 5:16 Be joyful always, 17 pray at all times, 18 be thankful in all circumstances. This is what God wants from you in your life in union with Christ Jesus.
How can we stay joyful all the time?
Does God want us to be happy and joyful? Yes !
Is it hard for a non-Christian to get out of depression?
Why is it easier for a Christian to get undepressed?
Are you glad that you've got a happy God cheering you up??
Can we remain POSITIVE at all times? YES, we can because Jesus is in control of everything.
Think positive.
Jesus is totally positive and in control.

removal of ads

Hi guys -

I removed the adsense ads as they were not very nice - new age junk was sprouting up, so they had to go.

Sorry about that short lived excercise.

God bless.
