I wonder if thats the real reason alot people are going to Church, They think they will be able to blame their preacher's for themselves not having enough Spiritual knowledge to SEEK God on their own?
I hope not, Because my/our jobs over after you've told them the Gospel, Not my Job to teach you the thing in Daniel and other books of God,
I've done that outta Love!
But, I'm not a preacher though, either...

There is an old saying, "As the pastor is, so goes the meeting." If a church lacks spiritual knowledge, it is probably because the pastor lacks spiritual knowledge. Pastors and teachers preach and teach what they know and many don't know much. I have been in many services where service after service salvation is taught which is great and needed, but not necessarily if it is being preached to a saved house. Pastors and teacher need to wade out a little deeper and get some revelation knowledge from the Lord so that they can feed their flocks some meat rather than milk of the Word.

Being a member of a church for many years and serving as an elder does not give a church spiritual knowledge. That comes from the Holy Spirit. Maybe they are lacking the Baptism of the Holy Spirit? I would bring that to their attention. Jesse Duplantis said he preached in all kinds of churches because he's bringing God and the Holy Spirit with him when he goes.

Mima, what are you doing repeating other people's conversations? It would have been better for you to either excuse yourself and move out of earshot, or to enter into the conversation and add your own insights.

Or you could try offering "hypothetical" situations for discussion without trying to pass them off as real. There is nothing wrong with discussing possible scenarios. Consider it a spiritual exercise.

Well Mima they have something in common with everyone on the planet; lack of spiritual knowledge.
If we could see evil spirits and angels plainly many unbelievers and old folk would commit suicide or suffer heart attacks, but I bet most would quit sinning. Now that's a merciful God At work.

Jack the Holy Spirit is present in all places but he is only obligated to act when the word of God is preached. Sometimes as churches, whatever the denomination, we must see if we are preaching God's true word, or if we are preaching from the wisdom of man, which is foolishness unto God!

mima, there are soooooo many churches today with people who say and think they are christians ,and don,t even come close to living the life that is soooo well defined in Gods word.

2 Tim 2:11,12 "Women learn in silence, No authority over a man." With aid of Strong's Conc. says "Unlearned women should not teach men or anyone." So like self appointed preachers, teachers, evangelists, prophets - without proper authority, should not teach. Some are sent, but some just went. Any biblically unlearned person can do harm. Not all should be teachers, man or woman, God is no respector of persons.

** Let's give Jack a biblical lesson everyone, okay?**
Let's give Donna a Biblical lesson.
Women are not supposed to presume to teach men.
---Jack on 9/7/06

Let's give Jack a biblical lesson everyone, okay? Are we the temple of the Holy Spirit? Does the Holy Spirit dwell in us or in tuna fish cans or in cars or oceans? Doesn't HE dwell in Human beings? And doesn't he speak THROUGH human beings? not dogs, not the air, not outer space, but through Human beings, right? So Jack, your argument is just to show you are smart but lacking wisdom.
---Donna9759 on 9/6/06

Jack, Jack, Jack - The Holy Spirit does come from the Father and infills us, the and how does the Holy Spirit speak? He speaks through us, the Body of Christ. No? Don't twist terminology around. We know who the HS is, and where he dwells, but you forget he speaks through us, his people.
If you had spiritual ears to hear, you would know exactly what Jesse meant when he said that. Get a tune up Jack and stop criticizing everything someone says.
---Donna9759 on 9/6/06

Mima ... You must know that this is a fault with all churches, and indeed with all of us here.. So I wonder whether there is a particular reason why you named the denomination where this happened?
You must

*Jesse Duplantis said he preached in all kinds of churches because he's bringing God and the Holy Spirit with him when he goes.**
Maybe I'm mistaken, but I thought that the Holy Spirit came from the Father at the intercession of the Son.
And the Tri-Personned God is present in all places and filling all things, but limited to no place.

greetings,when one runs out of answers then one has reached the top of the scaffold
---earl on 9/6/06

greetings,spiritual progress is not predicated upon how many times one participates in a function but when one masters the truth that progress is swift when oneself realizes that a individual relationship with the Father is the ideal relationship.did not jesus tell his apostles to go off by themselves.why? for personal instructions from our Father.the bible is a scaffold but the truth is from above
