When we are dealing with those who are not yet Christians, we need the ability to persuade them that the way of Christ is the right way. To do that we need the power of persuasion that God offers to us. Join us as this week as Pastor Bill leads us in Acts, Chapter 9, and we take a look at what that involves.
Whatever or WHOEVER persuades you....is what or who YOU WILL embrace and whoever or whatever you embrace is what YOU WILLCONFESS! Peitho = PERSUADEAspazomai = EMBRACEHomologeo = CONFESSThese all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. Hebrews 11:13
Kristen Tea and Crystal Wolf talk about the many myths that often are used to persuade parents to follow the routine infant circumcision that is happening in the U.S. today. If a parent becomes informed on the Truths of circumcision and see how invalid the myths are, they can see clearly how chosing to keep their boys intact is the way to go!
Dr. Chaps reports on these important issues:
* SunTrust bank drops two Christian brothers because they opposed homosexuality.
* Interview with Chris Stone, founder of Faith-Driven Consumers who gave thousands of petitions to the bank, that later repented of their anti-Christian bias.
Men come in all sizes and shapes.
Why America loves a con man. Savvy entrepreneurs have always sold people the same thing...DREAMS.
Con artists are greedy who sell us possibilites that never come true. Isn't it amazing how some can persuade people to part with their money. These people represent many of the virtues that some Americans aspire to, independence, self-made, don't have to kowtow to a boss. They succeed or fail based on their wits, but pick themselves up, dust themselves off and say OH WELL. Hope and hype keeps them alive.
Ah, the CROWING ROOSTER-FOR MEN ONLY...Gals from all walks of life shared what they'd like more from men.
Ya know we love you, but we'd love you more if...
When out with my guy...etc.
I love it when you cry...etc.
I love men for their...etc.
I love romantic men who...etc.
I love it when you remember...etc.
1 Kings 22:19-23New King James Version (NKJV)
19 Then Micaiah said, “Therefore hear the word of the Lord: I saw the Lord sitting on His throne, and all the host of heaven standing by, on His right hand and on His left. 20 And the Lord said, ‘Who will persuade Ahab to go up, that he may fall at Ramoth Gilead?’ So one spoke in this manner, and another spoke in that manner. 21 Then a spirit came forward and stood before the Lord, and said, ‘I will persuade him.’ 22 The Lord said to him, ‘In what way?’ So he said, ‘I will go out and be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets.’ And the Lord said, ‘You shall persuade him, and also prevail. Go out and do so.’23 Therefore look! The Lord has put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these prophets of yours, and the Lord has declared disaster against you.”
For we know that if the earthly tent which is our house is torn down, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
For indeed in this house we groan, longing to be clothed with our dwelling from heaven, inasmuch as we, having put it on, will not be found naked.
For indeed while we are in this tent, we groan, being burdened, because we do not want to be unclothed but to be clothed, so that what is mortal will be swallowed up by life. Now He who prepared us for this very purpose is God, who gave to us the Spirit as a pledge.
Therefore, being always of good courage, and knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord— for we walk by faith, not by sight— we are of good courage, I say, and prefer rather to be absent from the body and to be at home with the Lord.
Therefore we also have as our ambition, whether at home or absent, to be pleasing to Him.
For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may be recompensed for his deeds in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.
Therefore, knowing the fear of the Lord, we persuade men, but we are made manifest to God; and I hope that we are made manifest also in your consciences.
We are not again commending ourselves to you but are giving you an occasion to be proud of us, so that you will have an answer for those who take pride in appearance and not in heart.
For if we are beside ourselves, it is for God; if we are of sound mind, it is for you.
For the love of Christ controls us, having concluded this, that one died for all, therefore all died; and He died for all, so that they who live might no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died and rose again on their behalf.
Therefore from now on we recognize no one according to the flesh; even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet...
I would remark, further, that so far from Satan not exercising this power over man, he exercises it to such an extent, and he possesses such an unbounded influence over the human family, that God's purposes relative to man, and the earth... that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled." Revelation 20:1-3. Here, then, he is described as deceiving the nations, and his power is curtailed for a season, that he shall not possess it. It is a difficult thing to persuade men that they are deceived; because that very power that deceives them, inflates the mind with self-sufficiency and assurance: but who, that looks abroad in the world, and sees the confusion, distress, and misery that abound, will say that man has acted wisely?
(John Taylor, The Government of God, p.51)
A man must have the discerning of spirits before he can drag into daylight this hellish influence and unfold it unto the world in all its soul-destroying, diabolical, and horrid colors; for nothing is a greater injury to the children of men than to be under the influence of a false spirit when they think they have the Spirit of God. Thousands have felt the influence of its terrible power and baneful effects. Long pilgrimages have been undertaken, penances endured, and pain, misery and ruin have followed in their train; nations have been convulsed, kingdoms overthrown, provinces laid waste, and blood, carnage and desolation are habiliments in which it has been clothed.
(Joseph Smith, Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, selected and arranged by Joseph Fielding Smith, p.205)
Pastor Jonathan Mcgriff of the Shelter Church of God In Christ always trying to persuade others in Jesus by many different tactics. He believe in this vision the vision of COGIC Urban Initiatives is to build healthy individuals, families and communities for a successful future.
For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
2 For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven:
3 If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.
4 For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.
5 Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit.
6 Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord:
7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)
8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.
9 Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him.
10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
11 Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are made manifest unto God; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences.
12 For we commend not ourselves again unto you, but give you occasion to glory on our behalf, that ye may have somewhat to answer them which glory in appearance, and not in heart.
I’ll Take a Medium, Please… Did you think I meant french fries or a diet coke? Or did you think I just purchased a new T-shirt at a local clothing store. Media is the plural of Medium.
We get our information and entertainment from media. We learn all kinds of things about our world. Media messages inform, entertain and can even persuade us. The common thread of media messages is that they INFLUENCE us.
Young Media Critics examine the definition and share examples of "What is medium"? Join Young Media Critics on Tuesday, 5 p.m. (EST) in the U.S.
