    Is Violence Coming To Christians in America?

    And this is why most tend to just spot check only certain parts of a dream. They "think" they know what "this" means, so they throw that out there, but rarely try addressing the rest. And it's only when you can put the whole package together into a coherent interpretation that you have something worth presenting. Some will argue, of course, that the whole thing is just nonsense, but that's usually coming from the lazy types, who don't have the wherewithal to even attempt to interpret them at all.

    Yes, and this is one of the main problems. Context determines meaning, yet there is a tendency towards using "dream dictionaries" and systematic interpretations. Both, if I understand you right. There is a logic to things in their context, just as when you're interpreting the scriptures. But it takes the Spirit of God to interpret them properly.

    If by "never thought much about them" you mean never thought they were all that good, then yes. From what I see of most dream interpretation instructional videos and such, most don't impress me very much. I never took classes anywhere. I just started operating in it. But if by it you meant never thought much about taking any, I wouldn't advise it. They charge money, and they're not all that great in my opinion. I personally think the need to stick their hand out wanting to be reimbursed is precisely the problem.

    Seeing The Humor in Things

    What comes to mind is "Granny" from the Beverly Hillbillies. I joke with people incessantly, almost to the point of it bordering on obnoxious sometimes. But it's a better way to express my emotional side than to get heated as I occasionally do, for as the scripture says, "Laughter doeth good like a medicine." It can make an otherwise cruddy day come alive for me. So find humor in as much of life as you possibly can, I say. It can also make a marriage great, as well as other family relationships and friendships. Very hard not to have a good relationship with someone when you are constantly making each other laugh. Thanks for the good post!

    Calling All Pastors!

    This is really excellent, Gandalf, and some of the best advice of heard on Pastoring in a while. The dominant teaching role is really supposed to be left to teachers. The Pastor is primarily called to guide the flock, especially in their personal lives and personal decision-making (the word means Shepherd, first and foremost). So a person needs to have a desire to guide people in their personal lives. I have no such desire, which is how I know I am not called to Pastor. I am a teacher of the word, and anything that draws me away from that invariably begins taking me out of God's will for my life, and I can almost feel it tangibly. Anyway, your posts can be so in-depth that some of the better lines get lost in the shuffle, so I wanted to draw attention to those in particular.

    I don't know where to go

    Greetings, Gabes. Blessings to you in the wonderful name of Jesus Christ. You can trust Him, I promise you. Just keep calling out to Him in prayer incessantly, not just hourly but continually. Whenever worry and anxiety crosses your mind about your situation (any of it), just immediately switch over into to telling God that you trust Him, and that you know He is going to provide for you and your son. Along with praying continually, reciting these words to yourself and God as you go about your daily activities. It will build your faith. It is the 23rd Psalm: "The Lord is my Shepherd. I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures. He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul. He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for Thou art with me. Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me. You preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies. You anointest my head with oil. My cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever."

    These two are mods here: Omegaman 3.0, Steve_S. Maybe you could post them and they could help. I remember doing so when I first joined and they responded, only by that time I had finally figured it out.

    Ah! A welcome new member then. Hang in there. Always takes a few days to figure everything out. Let me know if you're still having trouble and I'll see if I can't help.

    If God created us perfect...

    Congratulations. Yowm gave you a very good passage on this. What is actually happening is that the Spirit of God has come within you now, and because of that you have indeed changed on a fundamental level. What you need to do now is seek to abide in that Spirit continually for the rest of your life (over time you may be tested in this area, and this is the challenge we all face). But another verse that partly describes to what you are experiencing now is here: "You have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, 'Abba, Father.' The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God." (Romans 8:15-16) You have been born by the Spirit from above, and that Spirit exhibits not only Love for God but Love for man as well. So don't forget this feeling, and always seek to remain in it. This is what it is like to be a true follower of the way. Welcome to the family of God, Follower! If we can be of any help to you, let us know, Hidden in Him

    A Lamp On The Stand

    dr3032, be of good courage. You could eventually end up shedding more light on the truth than they do, at which point they may have no choice but to take you more seriously, LoL. The lamp on a lampstand teaching was about more than just expressing one's faith in Christ. It was about receiving and sharing far greater revelation from God than anything the Pharisees and scribes could offer, and not being afraid or discouraged from doing so no matter what the circumstances. Christ's teaching in the Parable of the Sower was a command to allow the word to grow within you so fully (up to 30, 60, or 100 fold) that it couldn't help but pour forth into others, due to your having given yourself to the study of His word so much that it just begins happening naturally. When you open your mouth - to your parents or anyone else for that matter - the word just comes pouring forth in wisdom and revelation from God. So dedicate yourself to Him completely. In time, it may be you who becomes the instructor to your family, and if they pat you on the back now then maybe you can pat them on the back later (in a good spirit, of course), and let them know you understand, and that sometimes it just takes people a little while to come around is all, LoL. Be encouraged. God is a righteous Judge, and He will set every record straight.
  12. And I didn't support the reading of that paraphrase they are calling a translation. So for about the fourth time now, how did I lack discernment yet you yourself where far more discerning in the matter?
