Have You Discipled Others

Scripture says that the older women are to teach the younger women, and the mature men are to teach the younger men. Have you ever been mentored, or discipled, by a mature Christian? If so, how did they help you? How long did your mentorship relationship last?

CraigA, so true, Jesus did not teach political correctness. He said, I did not come to bring peace, but a sword!

Too many new-agers on line want to put salt peter on your sword!.
---kathr4453 on 6/20/11


"Kathr/Craig" lol
If you only knew how foolish you look right now to both of us.

I agree with the moving on thing, but its a guarantee that election will be brought up again even though the topic has nothing to do with it. The names are always the same. Its happened dozens of times so far. Reminds me of Rain Man "I'm an excellent driver" when the conversation is on football. I guess I should ignore it, but then I would be called rude for ignoring someone. Can't win. Its a catch 22.

Our society has gone down the crapper because of neutralitity. Everyone is so afraid of offending someone who is wrong that we have ceased to stand up for what is right! And we wonder why kids today are so spiritually blind.
---CraigA on 6/19/11


Kathr ... It's not odd really

Mark accepts that we are saved ... I accept that he is saved ... and you ,,, and the others here.

We all agree that we are saved by Jesus' sacrifice on our behalf and His resurrection.

But I disagree with Him as to how my acceptance of salvation occurred. I beleive I was free to accept Jesus' gift, while Mark believes I had nothing to do with that decision, but that God had chosen me long before that.

Mark beleives I am mistaken in my freewill belief about HOW I accepted salvation ... and I beleive he is mistaken about the "process"

That's all.
---alan8566_of_uk on 6/19/11


If markv has ALWAYS assumed everyone is saved here, then WHY all the cursing at those who disagree with him? Then what he is doing is cursing the very Christ in us, OF which he stated that the Spirit of God REALLY isn't in us, and Jesus Christ is not in us. Now, anyone who says that I DO NOT ASSUME THEY ARE SAVED. They are as lost as lost can be. When we talk about going on to maturity as we are instructed in James, via testing, markv again scoffed with a reply, God doesn't need to test US. I suppose the US here were the elect.

Again that is not the words of a saved man.

He comes here and scoffs and tramples everything said having to do with our growth and maturity.

He can't get part his unstablle foundation.
---kathr4453 on 6/19/11


MarkV--Kathr4453 had made a statement that indicates she understands this:
//So, again, if markv believes you to be saved,which many here then are saved too, WHY all this arguing and hateful comments.//
Presumably, she assumes this applies only to OTHERS.

//Now that we are all saved, regardless of Markv's predstination doctrine, LET's ALL go on to MATURITY in Christ, and leave the elementary basics alone. Heb 6//

I'm for that 100%.There could be some interesting discussion, if tempers don't flare. Why let these issues cause hostility between brothers and sisters in Christ?
---Donna66 on 6/18/11




Alan, thanks for that comment. I don't know if Kathr/Craig realize that when we speak here we assume the person is saved. Why would we discuss how we were saved with unbelievers? They are not saved or care to know about God.
This topic is for believers so that they can know how they were saved, and what kind of God do they believe they have. So thanks for your comment.
---Mark_V. on 6/18/11


Daniel/Markv, again you fail to read and understand SIMPLE WORDS. "OF" is different than "FOR".

So something being OF somenthig does not mean FOR something.

And OF does not mean Jews have authority to save anyone.

WHO spoke that verse in John 4:22?????

Jesus was speaking to a Gentile woman,( please read verse 4:9. Jesus spoke those words and Not to unbelieving Jews.
---kathr4453 on 6/18/11


Daniel/MarkV yes here is the whole verse.
John 4:22
Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.

Therefore any Gospel not based on the FOUNDATION of the pattern of things in Heaven, is a false doctrine. God revealed that pattern to Moses, and to Israel. That pattern is a picture of Jesus Christ and REDEMPTION through Jesus Christ.

Nowhere in this PATTERN is there anything remotely stating election based on calvinism.

Even the holding up of the serpent showed WHOSOEVER WILL, and their FREE WILL could chose to look or not!
---kathr4453 on 6/18/11


Mark has accepted that I am saved, even though I disagree strongly with his doctrine of the salvation process being Predestination.
---alan8566_of_uk on 6/17/11


Alan, I find this rather ODD, considering markv's predestination doctrine is the bases for anyone being saved and going to heaven.


If you weren't predestined and picked out you're not saved.

So, again, if markv believes you to be saved,which many here then are saved too, WHY all this arguing and hateful comments.

Now that we are all saved, regardless of Markv's predstination doctrine, LET's ALL go on to MATURITY in Christ, and leave the elementary basics alone. Heb 6
---kathr4453 on 6/18/11


James L, my interpretation of John 4:22 is different then yours. The Jews are not saved and have no salvation to give anyone. The passage is talking about how the Jews had received the full revelation of God in the O.T. They knew the God of Scripture because salvation came to them first and from them to the world. Meaning it was first given to them, they rejected it, and now is given to all. But they do not give salvation to anyone. Only God does. Is there salvation through any other? Only through Christ. One way only.
---Daniel on 6/18/11




Daniel,

Read John 4:22

Jesus Himself says, "for salvation is from the Jews"

So is Jesus a false teacher, too?

I think you may have a common problem, which is a narrow view of salvation. If you think salvation simply means "go to heaven" then you have a lot to learn on the subject.
---James_L on 6/18/11


Just another of many false teachings of Kathren

"Salvation is of the Jews"

We are told in the Bible that Salvation is of God.
Jews do not go around giving salvation to anyone. They don't have salvation to give.
---Daniel on 6/17/11


Kathr ... As you know I strongly disagree with Mark's predestination doctrine.

BUt Mark does NOT say that you you are saved WHEN you conform to his understanding

Mark has accepted that I am saved, even though I disagree strongly with his doctrine of the salvation process being Predestination.
---alan8566_of_uk on 6/17/11


What I really don't understand here is this. If faith does NOT come by hearing, why is MarkV here preaching anyway? And what exactly is he preaching, that you are saved WHEN you conform to his understanding. So if I conform to his understanding, does that NOW this moment make me the Elect. But if I don't conform to his understanding I am of satan.

So anyone then can become the Elect the moment they conform to markv's doctrine.
---kathr4453 on 6/17/11


Genesis 4:7 If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.

Genesis 19:21 And he said unto him, See, I have accepted thee concerning this thing also, that I will not overthrow this city, for the which thou hast spoken.

Matthew 7:7-8: Ask, and it shall be given you, seek, and ye shall find, knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
For every one that asketh receiveth, and he that seeketh findeth, and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

Believe in 'nothing' and find and receive nothing in return.
---Nana on 6/17/11


But you have to do something, you have to choose him or else you are not saved!
---Ruben on 6/17/11

Exactly .

But is the RCC the ONLY people who believe we respond to God's call through the Gospel? I guess the RCC was the ONLY Church there on the day of Pentecost when the Apostles were asked by teh Jews... "What must WE do to be saved", Ans: Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shall be saved. I guess the Apostles all through out ACTS preached that horrible save yourself gospel.

You know, there is not ONE indication in all the book of Acts that even remotely teaches Calvinism.

Salvation is of the Jews. The Jews UNDERSTOOD and so do I, a Jew, yet markv a gentile says only he understands.

yes I still pray for those in purgatory and ask for there intercession, we don't buy anything.

Of course it Jesus Christ.

kathr4453 Kathr* Covered this issue.

But does who have 'Try' to cover have no clue what the RCC teaches!
---Ruben on 6/17/11


Kathr, you accuse the RCC of the very same thing you believe. Salvation by works, your own works. Your own free will that you say God gave you. Grace is not works. You contradict yourself, you say on the one hand,

"MarkV, I don't believe my free will can save me. Nothing I can do can earn God's love or forgivness or raise me from the dead."

and on the other you say:

"I believe free will is what God gave man in order to choose Him or reject Him, not will themselves to be this or that."

Don't you get it? How hard is it to understand that you are contradicting yourself? Make up your mind. Which is it? Grace or your own works?

What do you mean by works salvation????
---Ruben on 6/16/11


Kathr, I've noticed that anyone who doesnt agree with Calvin often times gets painted as a member of the RCC.

I was never Catholic either. I just never accepted the Westminster Confession of Faith as divine literature from God. It is a man's opinion of what HE believes the Bible teaches. That is all.

When the Bible says "all men", "the whole world" and "whosoever" I believe it means EXACTLY what it says.

If you have to rewrite scripture in order to make it fit your doctrine, shouldnt that be a sign that your doctrine is wrong?
---Jasheradan on 6/16/11

So then quickened means faith.

Just as someone can offer me a chocolate Ice cream or Vanilla. If I'm told the Chocolate will make me fat, and the vanilla won't, I can freely choose if I want to get fat or not. I can also choose to decline any.

Every choice of any RELIGION is not something God forced on anyone. They CHOSE to be Mormon, or RCC or whatever. God is not the author of religions or false religions.

Did you CHOSE to be RCC, or was it forced on you?

---kathr4453 on 6/16/11


Kathr, the bondage I was in is the bondage you are in right now. I had the wrong god. Just as you have. I thought my own faith could save me. My own works. My own free will. I was blind to the things of God because I was spiritually dead to the things of God.
"But God who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us (believers) even when we were dead in trespasses, "made us (believers) alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved)"
---Mark_V. on 6/16/11


Calvin said:

"Predestination we call the eternal decree of God, by which He has determined in Himself what He would have become of every individual of mankind, For they are not all created with a similar destiny, but eternal life is fore-ordained for some, and eternal damnation for others. Every man therefore being created for one or other of these ends, we say, he is predestined either to life or to death"

OK, God would have the right to create people solely to torture them eternally ... but how could this be regarded as just punishment for disobedience when they have been behaving exactly as their creator had ordained?
---alan8566_of_UK on 6/15/11


For if God had not reached out to me and set me free from the bondage I was in, I would still be in bondage heading to hell.
---Mark_V. on 6/15/11

MarkV, exactly what bondage were you in? What were/or who were you set free from?

If you believe God predestined anyone to hell, that is called double predestination. A calvinist cannot believe in predestination and not believe in double predestination.

You may be unfamiliar with the term but you have given the definition of it time and time again.

You agree with Blogger 9211, and openly agreed that we are the LUCKY ones, and there is nothing the unlucky ones who were not PRE- chosen can do. THAT my friend IS double predestination.
---kathr4453 on 6/15/11

Craig, to show how wrong you are I will tell you that I do not believe in double predestination. My life clings on the Word of God. That He alone saved me. That while lost I was helpless to change my own heart. That one day He presented the Truth of His Word to me and that through that Truth, He gave me faith to believe and a conviction to understand that I had rebelled against God and that the only way for my salvation was through Jesus Christ His Son. If He had not come into my life, I would still be lost. So all praise goes to God the Father and my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and the Spirit for convicting me. For if God had not reached out to me and set me free from the bondage I was in, I would still be in bondage heading to hell.
---Mark_V. on 6/15/11


Not you, Mark, just the doctrine of double predestination that has poisoned you. You cling to it for dear life. It is a lie. It insults the loving nature of God, who flat out tells us in scripture He does not take pleasure in death and that its not his will that any man should perish.

Its clear from scripture that even those who reject Jesus Christ were sanctified by the sacrifice that He made on their behalf (Heb 10:29, 2 Peter 2:21). He has purchased all men by dying for their sins. What determines whether or not they spend eternity separated from God is what they have done with the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who has been given all power in heaven and earth and the judgement over mankind.
---CraigA on 6/14/11


Craig, everytime you pop up it is only to critic what I say. Sometimes in support of Kathr, or in support of anyone who disagrees with me. For all I know you might be Kathr disguised again. But you are wrong when you said,
" He is terrified to question his doctrine because he has been taught by his church and WCF that if faith was ours it would mean we are earning our own salvation."
My only fear is fear of God. Not anyone here. Second, if faith comes from the unbeliever, then they are not unbelievers. "Jesus Christ is the Author and finisher of our faith" the faith unbelievers have is not for God. Third, the Spirit teaches me through God's Word. Study to be approve.
---Mark_V. on 6/12/11


"I notice a lot of people making accusations against others for their comments and doctrine not being as they say it should?"

willa5568-- Very true. Doctrinal discussions are one of the best and most interesting features of these blogs. But doctrines should be defensible by Scripture, perhaps illustrated by personal experience. If a blogger has a disagreement with another blogger let them address that person directly and not try to create a coalition against them because their doctrine is "wrong".
Let everyone speak for
himself.

And if someone doesn't agree with a particular interpretation, that is their priviledge and their right. You can't "force" anyone to believe. As you say, they may be deaf or you may be wrong. But either way, there comes a time when you have to just accept another believer as they are.
---Donna66 on 6/10/11


I notice a lot of people making accusations against others for their comments and doctrine not being as they say it should?

I would like to ask then, is anyone on here wrong? Of coarse, but we all think we are right. For the most part everyone uses scripture to back what they say. Lets use our weapon, the sword of the spirit, the word of God. This is what Jesus said, "he who has ears to hear, let him hear". If they won't hear then their deaf or I'm wrong, one or the other.

Steven, a while back I told you I loved you. Yet you have said a lot to me personally. You even said,
" Many posters agree with what Mark V. says, but what does the bible say about people who lead the sheep astray?"
You are leading the believer out of Christ Church, now who is leading who? You want the sheep to go away from the body of Christ you even suggested they are of the devil. There is many genuine believers here who go to Church. You are calling them of the devil. Why do you not check what you say first. I only suggested for you to not try to destroy the Church that has Christ name on it. Is that so hard to understand?
---Mark_V. on 6/10/11


Steven, I have only disagreed with you bashing the churches. I have heard you speak against the gathering of believers since I got on line. You do say a lot of things that true about other matters, but mainly your goal has been the church of Christ. For no where in Scripture are we told to speak against the Church, the gathering of believers. Though there is many who are not saved that attend church, I'm speaking for those who are saved. There is no game to play. All I did was disagreed with you and a others who bash the gathering of believers. I have yet to hear one thing good about believers in Church. I didn't mean you were the only good one around since Scripture says there is no one good, the reason no one has the right to bash others.

CraigA: "Don't play the game."

Are we as christins not to reveal wolves in sheeps clothing to protect the other sheep from being misguided? Many posters agree with what Mark V. says, but what does the bible say about people who lead the sheep astray? Are we to continue following false prophets and teachers blindly? God forbid. Once a person is revealed as a false teacher, then people will not have anything to do with that person. Then again, many people on these blogs still follow and agree with Mark V. who takes a lot of worldly knowledge and mixes it with a little bit of biblical wisdom to make what he says sound like it's biblical.

Did Christ have anything good to say about the pharisees and sadducees, about the evil people, about the christian wolves in sheeps clothing? If you read all of the posts you'll find there is no unity among the people on these blogs. The truth is lost.

Their true nature is showing when they don't know the meaning of Christ's words and they don't see that they are damaging the true nature of what it is like to be living a true christian lifestyle. They are surely deluded when thinking themselves as christians.

I have received much from a few Pastors and Teachers through the Word, through counsel, through books, and by some internet / radio commentators, this being anywhere from a few months to several years.
A wise Bishop / Elder makes disciples (both genders) for the Lord - and especially trains men for future ministry. While women were expected to instruct their own children 1Timothy 2:15, only a very few older women are qualified to actually do this Titus 2:3-5 *.
* 1Corinthians 11:3-16, 14:33-40, Ephesians 5:21-33, Colossians 3:18, 1Timothy 2:9-15, 3:11-(12), 5:3-15, 1Peter 3:1-6, etc.

The big delusion mentioned in scripture is christians who believe they are christians, but are not because they have fallen into their own little denominational churches and have worldly knowledge of God, but deny his true power.

There are no positive and loving people in the world today - or rarely. You need Christ so that you have a cheerful heart within. Read the bible several times through the eyes of a child from beginning to end to get to know God better. I pray that not only will you find God, but know his power also. Then actively apply the words of Christ so your love will overflow.

Nana--//Why is it taking so long to flush the poop down the drain?//
Because bloggers insist on responding to poop.

"I have better things to do." "Well the joke is on you. You guys are losers and just keep on losing. I have better things to do." "You guys are morons. You provoke and then you want someone to act all saintly about it. What hypocrites!" "This place is full of liars and religious hypocrites. Just losers on the internet." "I can't believe that people on here have no backbone and don't stand up to you. Bunch of cowards!" "So basically go **** yourself." "Time for me to move on to more positive and loving people."

If this is as positive and loving YOU get, then the more positive and loving people you find are going to move on to more positive and loving people.

Poopsie, I mean no disrespect, but I see you have posted on several blogs, your grievances with others. I'd like to suggest that you, and others to, try to keep to the subject of the particular blog. Perhaps you could start a blog for discussing the issues. Thank you

Trish: This is an example of why I can't stand you! You are a control freak!

I just want you to know that I resent all the stupid things you said to me and you obviously have a major problem since you keep putting me down.

As for ACOA? I have books on that since I know how I grew up and some of it is true and some not. Psychology is humanism and not all of it is accurate. A lot of psychology goes against the Bible so I don't buy into all the psycho babble.

For my own good I am keeping away from people like you and this blog. This place is way too negative.

Hopefully you can look at yourself and quit pointing the finger.

Trish, It is very important that new believers be discipled right away by someone who is very good in the Word, not just one who speaks religiously. There is many of those but they don't know much. The first thing they should know about is the nature, character and attributes of God. And when you learned all there is to know about God, plant them in your heart. For they never change no matter what a passage seems to say. If it does not reconcile with who God is, then the passage is wrong and you need to find the correct interpretation.

Mod: The blog title is wrong. The question is "Have you ever been discipled?" NOT "Have you ever discipled?" I am seeking to learn the benefits others have received from being discipled.
