    • I am against the "rules makers" when it comes to their declaring  parameters for what  anyone is to be learning or asking about, or sharing for that matter. That  is very much like having a "priest" between lay people and God. Or much like having a priest approved list of movies or books that can be read or that are taboo.  So, I think it a very bad idea  to try to limit what can be discussed with  a unbeliever or a new believer about the Bible, for all of the Bible is man's inspired of God record, all good for instruction. If I look at the questions in the  "Outer Court" do those individuals and their questions really fit into a list of eleven topics set up much as a cut and past type list for them to select from or be steered into?  I don't think so.  Do I respond to them with sorry pick a subject from this list of eleven and we can discuss, but not anything else? I don't think so. I should be able to take on any subject of interest, not just eleven I have on a cheat sheet or play book.  Including the response, well I don't know never realized that  would be an issue in my own life , but let's se what we might find together within the word of God on  that problem  - subject - challenge, whatever the  It also seems to me that I should not be putting on priestly garments  of  authority over what another may be told about God's word and application of it. If I were limited to these twelve points as an unbeliever I would still not be a believer in Jesus as my Lord and savior. I suggest that it is precisely the limiting of one's curiosity and the channeling of it, or attempt to do so, that makes most Christian tracts a rather useless substitute for real interplay between any Christian witness and any person that has not yet  come to know Jesus as their Lord. Why the Holy Spirit presented this former unbeliever with  the last page of chapter eleven  and the first page of chapter twelve of the Book of Job on me.  I don't see start with the book of Job on anyone's list of good Bible tracts. None the less Job was perfect for leading me to read as a challenge from the non existent god the entire Book of Job as my own first Bible reading. At the time I had lost two family members, a life's career, had upset  and moved my immediate family 2800 mils,  had eleven new to me limited partners  to contend with, a failing hotel business in a bad economy to learn, and was in the process of trying to fight through five years of civil court battles as a partial list of issues to deal with.  By the end of that experience I had used up years of my life lost a share of over two million dollars had gone through all my own personal assets  was without a career. The Book of Job made my issues seem like  triviality by comparison, that contrasting comparison it gave me the interest in god and led to me understanding there is God! If the Holy Spirit had led someone to  hand me a tract on four spiritual laws it would have been trashed immediately. But the Book of job within a Gideon Bible one of one hundred and fifty of them in the hotel's rooms, one in each room, well that is what God choose to make a vehicle to get my attention as to my need.   That is why on a very personal experience level I think it a serious error to declare what God should use through His witnesses as His material to share with an unbeliever to get a person's attention. I think it an error to let ones self  only share with an unbeliever from a short list of tract like subjects. Let God lead, yes, but don't play priest of God by putting self between what God will use and what He will not share. Be the witness, give personal testimony, but also share of the availability of the entirety of God's word confessing that it is vast and often reveals newly  what God wills for us. So perhaps we could work through the questions asked, together for mutual benefit. To my own way  of thinking that approach  will open conversation, least have better chance of doing so than  the idea we will only discuss these eleven topics so liten up as i espouse  on them alone. Invite any question, don't worry about rabbits or their trails. Remember where the word of God led each of us and be patient in presenting the word as it seems to apply to life, allowing the Holy Spirit to guide us to the keys of scripture- which are way more numerous than eleven topics.
    • Kind of glad they don't ... there wold be a lot of unclothed people walking around.
    • Perhaps instead of seeking the good from the tree of good and evil, we should be looking for the PERFECT.
      Yahweh, Yeshua and their ways. We are seeing as man sees, but the Lord sees quite differently. We should strive for that which is perfect, not the good from the knowledge of good and evil.
    • I agree but I also know that young Western women need to be told in a loving spirit how to dress period (and as a Christian woman). Remember, we are living in a highly sexualized culture which is out of control - it has crept into the church as well. I see inappropriate church wear as well as couples (young and old) tenderly rubbing backs or necks or stroking hair - everything has a place but people need to be told with love. Just seems like people are not being told period.
    • The living sacrifice of my Jesus had nothing to do with saving me from  persecution at any time in this world . And my Jesus never told me I would have to wait for the tribulation to experience persecution .  "persecution " for me was not what Jesus defeated at the cross . The strange carnal obsession with persecution of the flesh represents a profound  lack of understanding the  spiritual victory paid for at the cross .                                                     " Acquaint now thyself with Him and be at peace ."    ( Job 22 : 21 ))

      Proverbs 2:6 For the Lord gives wisdom;
          from his mouth come knowledge and understanding;
      7 he stores up sound wisdom for the upright;
          he is a shield to those who walk in integrity,
      8 guarding the paths of justice
          and watching over the way of his saints.

      Galatians 2:19-21
      19 For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God.
      20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
      21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.
