    Hello everyone: My name is Natalie and I am new to this site. I have an issue that I struggle with on a frequent basis, and would like to know how you, as a Christian, handle it. I struggle with taking things personally. I have difficulty differentiating between feeling hurt that a boundary has been crossed, and simply making things that are not about me personally. I want to learn how to think in a biblical manner on this issue and I would appreciate any biblical wisdom on this subject. Thank you for reading this. Have a great day:)

    Welcome, nataly. Many people have this problem. Part of it is a matter of maturing in Christ. Some of it is needing to die to self. Some is realizing that people treated Christ badly and He told us that we would be treated the same way. So sometimes it is Christ in us who is being treated badly. Blessings, Willa

    That is not really comparable to Scripture, though. In the Bible, we are not dealing with one six word sentence for which we have no historical, cultural or literary context. Interpretation is not a subjective exercise. The meaning isn't derived from the reader, but from the author. What is often the case is that people confuse application and interpretation. There can be only one interpretation. If we read a newspaper, a cookbook, a fictional novel, a book of Shakespearean poetry, we naturally adjust our thinking to accommodate the intent of the author. We don't assume the author has 50 different possible meanings or "interpretations." Our goal is to understand what the author wants us to understand. When it comes to the Bible, though, it seems like those rules we operate by in ordinary life simply go out the window and suddenly, no one is can understand it, no one can interpret it. We can interpret ANYTHING else, but the Bible it seems. But that is simply not the case. The Bible isn't hard to understand IF the Bible is your final authority and you know what it says. We do not have a perfect or exhaustive knowledge of everything it contains, but the Bible isn't a collection of riddles and God isn't trying to keep us in the dark. Any one can read and understand, make sense of and competently interpret Scripture in terms of what they need for life and spiritual growth and to be in relationship/fellowship with God. The more we grow, the more we learn. The Bible is a book that is designed to be studied and searched out. That's why there is no one single verse or chapter, or book of the Bible that contains all of the truth on any given subject. It has to be searched out, but too many people are brainwashed to think that they can't study it or understand it, and need someone else to do it for them. Pretty pathetic. Many people don't know God because they don't know the Bible and what is in it, simply because they have been told that they can't know it.

    Claiming to know God is watching this thread with distaste is a biting weapon that is used to diminish the ideals of others because they are not in accord with the one making presumptions they can speak for God. This thread is an example in itself of the holy spirit. Some are sealed but how many are empowered?

    Hey JohnD, I love that we all have access to prayer. Sad but true, it is something that we often forget about till we realize that what we have been trying has not been working. Please keep my dad and stepmom in your prayers. My dad is pastoring overseas and just in April and May alone have had five break-ins. They have fortunately not been hurt. But would appreciate prayers for their safety.

    Wow, thank you, Brother! Your comments/replies always make me smile. The beauty of it all is that the Gospel message never changes... and whether it is given by a man or a woman, it is the Holy Spirit who takes that message and does the work in the hearts of the hearers!

    Did enjoy that OneLight, And as I`ve just popped in, (time out from the ever long, never ending debate) and would like to give my two cents worth. The ministries of the ascended Lord, (5 fold) are given to the Body whether some recognise them or not. However when we are talking of leaders over man`s organisations, there are many reasons why women have not been given positions there - having children, (therefore took longer to work up the hierarchy), man`s prejudice, tradition, the amount of administration that is really the job, etc etc. Marilyn.

    Praying for accurate results for any tests so that a correct diagnosis can be made. Also praying for complete healing and that your lungs might be clear, so that you can breathe easily without any obstruction or difficulty.

    Welcome~! ~ See that no one returns evil for evil to anyone, but always follow after that which is good, for one another, and for all. Rejoice always. Pray without ceasing. In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus toward you. 1 Thessalonians 5:15-18 (New Heart English Bible)

    all depends on how much time you have spent to sort out the real from the fog of disinformation that the globalists have thrown out..... and it helps to have started from the beginning.

    Thank you all so very much. The doctor informed me today that my dad has a severe infection. He has stopped eating and has lost almost 20 pounds within the last 10 days. It is heartbreaking to see a man that was once so strong, (a Korean War veteran) now so incredibly frail. I know when the Lord calls him home, it is HIS will. I pray for strength to see my daddy go. Thank you all, again, for your heartfelt prayers. I appreciate them very much. God bless each of you.

    Come on Abby- Joy, we both know Phoebe wasn't using her brain or spiritual gifts and talents in that church. She was making brownies and cleaning up after the mess the men had made when they finished lunch. Don't you see?????? She was called the SERVANT of God! Servant.......think slave! That girl worked her butt off, just like most women are expected to do today. Nothing has changed that much. Oh, and leave all that important spiritual stuff to the men. Father knows best, right? 🤦🏻‍♂️😜😸 a playful spock Someone slap me (just having fun Moderators, we all need a good laugh, right?)

    It is important that a Christian seek a Christian therapist so that person can get Christian support and perspective. A Christian should not seek an exorcist but lean on God and pray.

    In the Greek the word that the KJV interprets as "servant" is "diakonos". And the word Deacon derives from this word which also means servant.

    Hi Limey Bob Can you please tell me where YWAM has become occultish or new-agey? I spent almost two years in YWAM (albeit quite a while ago) and, once I had left, my husband spent 5+ years there (we never met in YWAM, but later). I didn't travel too much, but he travelled a lot. Neither of us ever experienced anything like this. YWAM was on the very straight and narrow. We still go by the teaching we received there, many years later. We sat under many different ministries, and believe me, God really sorted us out there. We still have relatives and friends there. Can you please share why you make these claims about an organisation that has had a wonderful influence on a lot of people I know and this includes us. Thanks, Bob. God bless.

    Establishment people were pushing this Russian thing since Trump started running for office. McCain and Graham were pushing no relations with Russia along with the Democrats from the very beginning. There is a serious problem with Putin and Russia as neither he nor most of Russia's population want to be part of the one world government.... and this is what most of this is about.... keeping Trump from pulling us out of the things the globalists have accomplished globally. I might add that there are people being paid to go out and push against everything that the President wants to do..... I know that as a fact for the job was offered to me...

    Husband wife teams may also be appropriate sometimes. We had a man with a wonderful evangelical ministry, but his wife was the prayer warrior and they were most effective as a team. Now he works for YWAM giving training seminars in evangelism for their many headquarters around the world.
