Very good Steveng.

Exodus 4:14_16 "And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Moses, and he said, Is not Aaron the Levite thy brother? I know that he can speak well. And also, behold, he cometh forth to meet thee: and when he seeth thee, he will be glad in his heart.
And thou shalt speak unto him, and put words in his mouth: and I will be with thy mouth, and with his mouth, and will teach you what ye shall do.
And he shall be thy spokesman unto the people: and he shall be, even he shall be to thee instead of a mouth, and thou shalt be to him instead of God."

Parents are at the frontline, as the first defence, for sure.
---Nana on 10/3/13


Cluny: "If they have a true calling and ministry from God, He will tell them directly, and not you."

If that is true, which it isn't, why are ther apostles, prophets, and teachers? Aren't parents to train up their children the way they should go? Aren't christians suppose to spreat the seeds of the Word?

The seed must be sown by parents, teachers, pastors, prophets, apostles. The christian then grows through the continued teachings. After the repentance, the baptism of the Holy Spirit, and the applied genuine love of God, then God will choose you to carry on his work one-on-one with Him.

Hello,here a little tidbet for you..got this from an old gospel song,but get the words ..you get them in your mind,heart,soul,spirit.
My mother drug me ,My mother drug me to church,even Sunday school,she say you don't have to shed no tears,you don't have lie and steal cuz the drug I' Christ Jesus' gave his life
to save you,you ain't got smoke,put nothing up your nose...
"
Yes,that the only drug she said I am giving you!"
---Lidia4796 on 9/21/13


What type of drugs are we talking about? illegal or legal, Some help your body some will kill your body. You body has a desire to live, your heart may not. Does God get mad at you for using drug? If they can keep you alive until your healed there is nothing wrong with that. But if your using them for your on pleasure I don't think God is for that.

Lol. Taking the 5th is an obvious admission that you can't defend yourself. Lol. But sure, blame it on the old "you lack spiritual discernment so I won't discuss it" cop out. Like we haven't heard that one from you before. Those of us with actual discernment (and intelligence) know that really just translates to "I can't defend my denomination's false teachings through scripture, and discussing them will only open me up to even more scrutiny". You're lines get old fast. Get some new material.
---Jed on 8/17/13


In fairness to Jed, I will discuss point #1.

To an Orthodox, "tradition" means "that which has been passed down, received, and preserved." This means the Bible as well, which discusses the importance of tradition.

EVERYTHING in the Church is tradition, because the Bible didn't drop down out of heaven already written, with a list of what books were authoritative.

Even with the NT, there is disagreement among Christians about which text is authoritative: the Received Text, the Alexandrian Text, or the Majority Text.

Except for the Orthodox, of course. For us it's the RT.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 8/17/13


Jed:

Paul's letter to the Colossians recommends reading his letter to the Laodiceans, and his letter to the Laodiceans recommends reading his letter to the Colossians.

Yet Christians today (and presumably you as well) believe that Colossians is the Word of God, yet Laodiceans is not. Why is that? There is no internal evidence in any of the scriptures to favor over the other.

Here is the reason: Tradition. Church tradition has accepted Colossians but not the other. So one cannot reject church tradition out of hand without rejecting scriptures itself, since without it, we wouldn't have any idea what scripture was in the first place.
---StrongAxe on 8/17/13




Jed, these statements divorced from their context make no sense.

Since spiritual things require spiritual discernment, something you lack, I will not discuss them with you.

Interesting. This was taken from an Eastern Orthodox website that explained the difference between Eastern Orthodox beliefs and Roman Catholic beliefs, and between Eastern Orthodox and mainstream Protestant beliefs. Also interesting how you have advocated for all of these teachings on these blogs, especially #1, which is the most dangerous.

People like Grandma and NurseRoberts think they are main stream America because that is what they see portrayed on television. They think what they see on television is the norm, but it is actually nothing close. On television, you see same-sex couples everywhere. In reality, they only make up less than 2% of America's population, but from watching television, you would think it was somewhere around 30% or 40%. Television portrays atheists as the norm and people who believe in God as weird. In reality, 73%-76% of American's identify themselves as Christians and only 15%-20% have no religious affiliation. But Television portrays same-sex relationships to be more popular than Christianity.

Trav, put down your hatred and retread Nurse's post. He said you are intelligent. So, you thank him for the compliment by insulting him.
---Grandma on 8/16/13

Hatred? You mean like King David?
No, cannot hate those who know not the truth. Rebuke is better than a kiss and taste like truth.

Psa_34:21 Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate.
Psa_101:3 I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside, it shall not cleave to me.
Psa_139:21 Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee?

I don't think nurse hates GOD, he just hates his truths that interfere with his desire.

Trav: I beg to differ with you. My experience has been that Jed is NOT like most of America. Most of America is not extreme right conservative. Most is in the middle, staying away from either extreme.

Well granny we all have our own perception of what America was, is and could/should be I guess.

I wouldn't swap a overly moralistic Jed for ten thousand no moral liberals though. Or most empty suit preachers who don't have a clue what scriptures support other scriptures.
Act_3:23 it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people.

At least Jed wouldn't be hitting me up for a date and the human race is not aborted for pleasure sake.

Intelligence? Being liberal is a great measure of foolish. Sodom an Gomorrah were liberal. Most of the wicked kings and queens mentioned were liberal. You defend your god barry who supports all the above an more. If insulted you should take a look at your sandy position.

Hos_1:10 Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered, and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God.

Which ones?

That Jesus Christ is true God and true Man?

That He died for our salvation and rose from the dead?

That He is coming again?

Can you be SPECIFIC about the doctrines of Orthodoxy that you want to criticize?

BTW--make sure they are ORTHODOX doctrines, and not merely what you think Roman Catholicism teaches. Believe it or not, there's a difference.

Someone once criticized Orthodox clergymen for wearing "Levitical robes" ---Cluny on 8/13/13


I understand what you mean. Of all the legit things to criticize the orthodox about, there are much more important things than the priests robes to criticize the orthodox about, starting with much of their doctrine. Their robes would be the least of the worries on the list.
---Jed on 8/13/13


\\Did they wear 3 piece suits 2000 years ago? Did they wear jeans, or pants as we know them today? \\

Someone once criticized Orthodox clergymen for wearing "Levitical robes"--his interpretation of a cassock--saying that "Jesus and His disciples didn't dress differently from everyone else."

The Orthodox Christian pointed out that an Orthodox priest's cassock probably looks more like what Jesus and the apostles wore than a three piece suit popular among his church's clergy. (He didn't ask about what was "Levitical" about a cassock.)

And what does "strange apparel" mean in this verse?
---Cluny on 8/12/13

I have to agree. I am constantly amazed how Christians today take a verse from the Bible (such as what garments to wear or not wear) and try to fit them into today's society. Did they wear 3 piece suits 2000 years ago? Did they wear jeans, or pants as we know them today?

And, while I'm at it, just how does Obama fit into this? Trav can't contribute to the discussion, so he chooses to try insults instead. Says a lot about him.

---Goofy_Mouse on 8/8/13


NurseRoberts, I've noticed you've been avoiding the "Shaved head and tattoos" blog because I exposed your own hypocrisy and "bigotry" on that thread. Because you too judge people by their appearance. YOU KNOW that if you saw a skinhead covered in swastika tattoos you would think he was a white supremacist. You can say "I hope that I wouldn't" all you want. YOU KNOW you would, and so would anyone. You honestly cannot tell me you think there is nothing inappropriate about a Christian purposefully looking like a white supremacist. You too have your own ideas of images a Christian shouldn't project. Only when it isn't YOUR particular flavor is it okay to judge, which makes you the biggest bigot of us all.
---Jed on 8/8/13


Well, the simple fact is that the way a person chooses to dress and present themselves, and their style, IS A PART OF WHO THEY ARE. Ignoring this fact only makes you, well, ignorant.

You are pretending to be ignorant of social standards, but I don't believe you are. I think you know full well what society considers a thug look and a professional look, and that society doesn't consider a punk look to be a decent Christian look. You call me a bigot for distinguishing proper dress from improper dress, when in reality, most people do. And you make yourself look stupid by acting like you don't know.
---Jed on 8/8/13


Jed: I'm not late. I've been following your discussion with Nurse on all the threads having to do with earrings, tattoos, and dress. I even replied on one about the possibility that one such person could have a ministry in the inner city, where the people would not be so quick to judge. I have not seen Nurse say any such thing till his recent post about punk style dress.

In all of these threads, the mother, or grandmother, has felt their child or grandchild was called of God. Yet, none of these people have said how old this child was, or if the child in question is interested in serving the Lord.
---Grandma on 8/7/13


Grandma, check the "big hoop earrings" blog, which this blog is a continuation of. You will see NurseRoberts comments.
---Jed on 8/7/13


1. I have no problem if they dress in punk fashions. If they love the Lord, what is it to me how they are dressed?

2. Jed, I never said that and you can't post anything I said that even comes close to me saying that. It is interesting to note when you can't debate facts you try to turn things around. This entire debate has been about judging people by how they dress, not who they are. You seem to have problems figuring out the difference between the two. Your not a bigot because you have a preconceived notion of what different modes of dress are, but that you choose to judge people becuase of what they wear.

Grandma, I said nothing about jeans and a t shirt. I don't see anything abnormal about that. That is what I wear at home and when I am off the job. We were talking about guys with the ear piercings that stretch out the ears and leaves a big hole that you can see through. It's like a big grommet in the ear that can be about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. I think that's a little different than wearing a normal pair of jeans and a t shirt. NurseRoberts doesn't think there is any difference. I don't know what your opinion is and quite frankly am not much interested. But thank you for engaging in the conversation but you joined in a little late to know what's going on.
---Jed on 8/7/13


In fairness to Jed, he's not the only one I've seen who confuses certain cultural trappings and mores with Christianity.

While I choose NOT to have earrings or tattoos, or other piercings, I won't judge those who do on those grounds.

Don't forget, there are some Christians who think that women should not wear pants suits or cosmetics or cut their hair, with 5000 proof texts.

Janet hasn't been back on to answer questions. First of all, she has not indicated if her children are believers. So, all this judging and criticizing each other over how they dress, or smoke weed, is assuming these children are believers.

Jed: I have not seen where Nurse has said any of what you claim he's saying.

Second, not everyone believes they should dress professionally all day, every day. I certainly don't dress professionally all the time. When I worked full time, I only dressed nice for work. Once I got home it was jeans and T-shirts. I've been a Christian since high school. You going to judge me too?
---Grandma on 8/7/13


Okay, to recap:

1. NurseRoberts thinks it's okay for Christians to dress in punk fashion.

2. NurseRoberts admittedly knows no distinction between a punk dress style and professional dress, and therefore, is too socially ignorant to engage in a conversation about fashion trends. By his own admission, he thinks streched earlobes with huge holes, sagging pants, flatbilled hats, bling teeth, and brow/nose rings is just as professional looking as a clean cut in slacks and a tucked in button down shirt. He doean't know what the terms punk look, profesional look, or gangsta look mean. And those of us who do are "bigots".

3. Nurse thinks there is no corelation between a persons chosen style of dress and their personality.

3. Cluny thinks he is a loser and an Idiot (though I don't think he is either).

4. And Goofy_mouse. Well, he is what he is.

---NurseRobert on 8/7/13


\\Cluny, Christ hasn't called you to be either an idiot or a loser.\\

Cluny, Christ hasn't called you to be either an idiot or a loser. You do that by your own choosing, not for Christ's sake. You have chosen to become that because you enjoy the attention you get from making idiotic comments and you think it is witty to act ignorant of obvious truths, such as certain social norms that everyone except you seems to be aware of. If that is what you think Christ has called you to be, then you may want to re-evaluate your relationship with Him. He hasn't called you to be an idiot and a loser, so I hope you will stop that and begin fulfilling his real calling on your life.

Janet,

The Apostle Paul list some of the works of the flesh:

Gal5:20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

The word witchcraft is from the Greek word "pharmakeia". We get our word pharmacy from this word. The word pharmakeia means medication, e.g. "drugs".

Drug use is of the flesh and of the devil.

Seems to me, I read this somewhere...

1 Cor 6:12 "All things are lawful for me, but all things are not helpful. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any"

If the weed has power over them (and it does), then it is not for the believer. God does not want us to be controlled by anything but His will and His Spirit.
In the same way, drunkeness controls the believer in a way that God does not want.

---NurseRobert on 8/5/13


I never denied judging them upon their appearance. Stretching out your earlobes with giant holes and metal grommets DOES indeed make you look like both an idiot and a loser. No one who has respect for either themselves or others will dress like that. It is a defiant and wayward look and that is no way for Christians to represent their faith.

Seriously Jed, did you not say they look like "idiots and losers?" How is that not judging him on his appearance? And how does that reflect a "nasty" lifestyle? Perhaps bigot is too harsh a word, but judging people by how they look is exactly what you did.

Elder, that is the point. The AF class A's may look like a bus driver (I always thought the Army Class A's did the same), but I would not judge a bus driver by how he looks. The same with a "biker", and it would be the same with a nurse dressed in white. We associate certainly looks with a profession or culture but that does not give us the right to judge their heart. God tells us not judge their heart by how they dress.
---NurseRobert on 8/5/13


"Jed, I called you a bigot... you judge people on how they look..."
NurseRobert
You condemn others and do the same thing. You stated on another blog, "That you know a Nurse that dresses like a Biker." You also judged someone by their appearence.
Some people dress like they do to identify with groups. It is natural to assume that. It is natural to state that someone "dresses like a biker." We all get the image. What I don't get is how you repremand others and you do the same thing.
I have said the new US Air Force class A uniform looks like a Bus Driver. So can you vision a Bus Driver now? There is nothing wrong with this. Our treatment towards some one who dresses or states views different may be.
---Elder on 8/5/13


So NurseRoberts, its okay for you to judge other people's behavior as worlldy, but if I do it I'm a bigot? It was the action of having the holes put in that I was judging, not the holes themselves. If he were born that way I would not judge him, actually, I would feel compassionate for him. It was the action of purposefully making yourself look worldly and giving yourself a look that reflects a nasty lifestyle that I was criticizing.

You're analogy is spurious at best. You can twist it anyway you like, but in the end, you choose to judge people based on how they look.

As NurseRoberts so put it...

"Except him for what he is, God does".

If this applies to getting big holes put into your ears, certainly this would apply to smoking weed, or anything else worldly that they choose to do as well.

Jed, it's time for you to grow up. At no time did I call Christians bigots because they believe in right or wrong. I called you a bigot because you judge people on how they look, not what's in their heart.

Apart from the fact I think this is a bogus question,
Call the local law enforcement officals, give them your names, address and a time you will all be home and ask them to come over and answer your question.

Do you believe God can make you stoned and drunk? The Holy Spirit Loves to party all the time, But religion teaches you false things about God so you stay under their control. The Holy spirit can make you stoned and drunk with out smoking any pot or drinking any beer. It's the best high of all.

Janet, what makes you think Christians shouldn't smoke weed? You must be a bigot for believing in right and wrong!

1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

1 Peter 1:13 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ,

Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things [are] honest, whatsoever things [are] just, whatsoever things [are] pure, whatsoever things [are] lovely, whatsoever things [are] of good report, if [there be] any virtue, and if [there be] any praise, think on these things.

BTW, Janet, didn't you tell us at one time that your husband of 22 years left you?

Something tells me that this is a parody of what Charlotte posted twice earlier about earlobe hoops.

In case I am mistaken, I will try to give a straight answer.

Why are your kids smoking marijuana to start with? Its use for either recreational or medicinal purposes is illegal under federal law, though some states are allowing it for the latter.

If you want to get them and yourself in a lot of legal trouble, go right ahead.

If they have a true calling and ministry from God, He will tell them directly, and not you.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

How old are your children? If they're minors, and living under your roof, then it's not okay. If they're adults, and living under your roof, kick them out if they don't abide by your rules. If they're adults, living on their own, it's between them and God.

What makes you think they are called of God?
