STOP making worship leaders and thought leaders the most influential people in Christendom.


Vă recomand să citiți acest articol.Este exact ceea ce se întâmplă în multe Biserici din America, iar acest model este preluat, din păcate, de Biserici românești.
„We must STOP making worship leaders and thought leaders or influencers or cool people or „relevant” people the most influential people in Christendom. (And yes that includes people like me!) I’ve been saying for 20 years (and seemed probably quite judgmental to some of my peers) that we are in a dangerous place when the church is looking to 20 year old worship singers as our source of truth. We now have a church culture that learns who God is from singing modern praise songs rather than from the teachings of the Word…”

Is Pokemon Dangerous?


Is Pokemon dangerous?  Potentially, yes it is.  It conditions the child who plays the game into accepting occult and evolutionary principles.  Haunter can hypnotize, eat a person’s dreams, and drain their energy.  Abra reads minds.  Kadabra emits negative energy that harms others.  Gastly induces sleep. Gengar laughs at peoples’ fright.  Nidoran uses poison.  The Psychic type of Pokemon are among the strongest in the game.  Charmander, Haunter, Ivysaur, Kadabra, and many more evolve.  The children are taught to use these creatures to do their will by invoking colored energy cards, fights, and commands. Much of it is reminiscent of occult and eastern mysticism.

The Bible says to „Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it” (Prov. 22:6).1 2 Chron. 33:6 says, „And he made his sons pass through the fire in the valley of Ben-hinnom; and he practiced witchcraft, used divination, practiced sorcery, and dealt with mediums and spiritists. He did much evil in the sight of the Lord, provoking Him to anger.” Read more here>>

Efectele Daunatoare Ale Profesionalismului in Biserica Locala


Am gasit mai multe articole care dezbat acest subiect. Astazi vi-l recomand pe acesta:

Addressing the Damaging Effects of Professionalism in the Local Church

“We pastors are being killed by the professionalizing of the pastoral ministry.  The mentality of the professional is not the mentality of the prophet.  It is not the mentality of the slave of Christ.  Professionalism has nothing to do with the essence and heart of the Christian ministry.  The more professional we long to be, the more more spiritual death we will leave in our wake.”

These are the first words of John Piper in his book, Brothers, We Are Not Professionals: A Plea to Pastors for Radical Ministry.  God has used these words in profound ways, not just in changing my thinking but really the course of my life.  It was in a staff meeting one morning that I read this chapter and spoke of the dangers of a professionalized ministry, and the consequence of that meeting was a sovereign shift that directed me to seminary and now to the local church where I serve …

1.  Professionalism tends to foster consumerism.

2.  Professionalism creates a culture of comfort and settled tradition.

If Supreme Court Legalizes Gay Marriage, Most Pastors Will Do This


„Americans who say they have gay or lesbian friends are twice as likely to agree gay marriage should be legal.

Fewer than half of Americans say homosexuality is sinful.

And evangelicals are increasingly at odds with American culture over same-sex relationships.

Those are among the findings of a phone survey of 2,000 Americans about gay marriage from Nashville-based Lifeway Research. Researchers found that friendship and faith play an influential role in how Americans view gay marriage.

„When it comes to support for gay marriage, a lot of it depends on who you know,” says Ed Stetzer, executive director of LifeWay Research. „Those who say they have gay or lesbian friends are the most open to gay marriage. Also, regardless of friends, evangelicals are more likely to consider homosexual behavior sinful.”

Currently 37 states allow gay marriage—though ceremonies are on hold in some places, pending appeals. Later this month the Supreme Court will hear arguments that could make same-sex marriage legal nationwide…”

Un interviu cu Pastorul Iacob Coman


Interviul este preluat de Aici
„După câteva zeci de mii de accesări pe mesajul pastorului Iacob Coman, și alte zeci de comentarii, mi-am dat seama că trebuie să-l implicăm și pe dânsul în discuțiile noastre, pe blog, macar prin a-l cunoaște mai bine și a-i cunoaste gindirea mai bine.
Așa că l-am sunat și am discutat cu dânsul despre un interviu. Am fos dezarmat efectiv de umilința cu care a stat de vorbă cu mine și de disponibilitatea dânsului cu privire la acest lucru. I-am trimis intrebarile ieri, iar astăzi (cu toate că domnia-sa este o persoană foarte ocupată) am primit răspunsul la toate intrebările mele. Trebuie să recunosc faptul că unele întrebari, au fost și pentru mine incomode de pus, și cu atât mai mult sunt sigur că nu a fost simplu nici pentru el să răspundă, dar a făcut-o cu cea mai mare plăcere.
Am fost impresionat de smerenia lui și de simplitatea cu care abordează orice provocare. Dar haideți să-l lăsăm pe el să ne vorbească.
1. Vă rog să vă prezentaţi!

– Nu mă simt foarte confortabil să vorbesc despre mine, dar pentru că doriţi acest lucru o voi face. – În linkurile de mai jos aveţi CV-ul meu şi lista a o parte din lucrările mele.

Four Belief System That Support Spiritual Abuse


„As spiritual abuse continues to make headlines, with the latest being allegations against a well-known international ministry, we often focus on the individual’s directly responsible, and with good reason. But, we should also remember that repeated abuse like those described do not usually happen in a vacuum. There are often conditions and beliefs that exist within these organizations that enable abuse of power, even using spiritual tactics.

Phil Monroe, respected Christian Psychologist and director of the Master’s counseling program at Biblical Seminary, recently created a list of conditions that enable abuse within the church and without…” contine reading>>
