Friday, July 18, 2014 7:35 PM James, again by John_C

We are studying James in SS, and every time I pick it up to read/study I have problems. Sunday, we are studying 2:14-26 and James does a good job in challenging 'false faith', but he does not mention that their is 'false works' at play as well, especially in our day. That is what liberation theology, liberal theology, etc is all about. Do good for your fellow men, but deny the gospel of Christ Jesus. What does good works play in having our sins forgiven. Is that man's problem, or is it socio-economic, demographic position?

How can I understand James better?

Monday, July 14, 2014 8:35 PM All Things for Good by chestnutmare

It is one heart-quieting consideration in all the afflictions that befall us, that God has a special hand in them: "The Almighty hath afflicted me" (Ruth i. 21)... Job eyed God in his affliction: therefore, as Augustine observes, he does not say, "The Lord gave, and the devil took away," but, "The Lord hath taken away." Whoever brings an affliction to us, it is God that sends it...As the hard frosts in winter bring on the flowers in the spring, as the night ushers in the morning star: so the evils of affliction produce much good to those that love God.
~ Thomas Watson

Wednesday, July 9, 2014 6:10 PM Prayer by chestnutmare

I commend to you, in the next place, the importance of perseverance in prayer. Once having begun the habit never give it up. Your heart will sometimes say, “We have had family prayers; what mighty harm if we leave private prayer undone?” — Your body will sometimes say, “You are unwell, or sleepy, or weary; you need not pray.” — Your mind will sometimes say, “You have important business to attend to to-day; cut short your prayers.” Look on all such suggestions as coming direct from the devil. They are all as good as saying, “Neglect your soul.” I do not maintain that prayers should always be of the same length; — but I do say, let no excuse make you give up prayer. It is not for nothing that Paul said, “Continue in prayer,” and “Pray without ceasing.” (Colos. iv. 2; 1 Thess. v. 27.) He did not mean that men should be always on their knees, as an old sect, called the Euchitae, supposed. But he did mean that our prayers should be like the continual burnt offering, — a thing steadily persevered in every day; — that it should be like seed-time and harvest, and summer and winter, — a thing that should unceasingly come round at regular seasons; — that it should be like the fire on the altar, not always consuming sacrifices, but never completely going out. Never forget that you may tie together morning and evening devotions by an endless chain of short ejaculatory prayers throughout the day. Even in company, or business, or in the very streets, you may be silently sending up little winged messengers to God, as Nehemiah did in the very presence of Artaxerxes. (Neh. ii. 4.) And never think that time is wasted which is given to God. A nation does not become poorer because it loses one year of working days in seven by keeping the Sabbath. A Christian never finds he is a loser in the long run by persevering in prayer. ~ J.C. Ryle

Friday, July 4, 2014 7:06 AM Christian Mysticism by John_C

What exactly is Christian mysticism? I've read a little but still am not grasping it. Apparently, Christian mystics were big in the 14th century. I've been told that Tozer is a Christian mystic. Who are the Christian mystics today. What would be some of its main faults?
