16 hours ago ADHD [by Tom]
Today during worship service, I sat behind a family whose teenage son (nearly 6’ tall) was disruptive. I could tell his parents were agitated and felt helpless; they even tried to discipline him. During the sermon, their son said loud enough for many to hear “this is so boring!”
After the service, I talked to his dad and told him I was praying for him and his family. He told me his son has ADHD and though it doesn’t excuse him, his mind doesn’t work normal. His dad told me that he appreciates my prayers.
I am assuming his parents are actively seeking solutions for their son and I do not want to make them feel unwelcome in Church. However, his actions made it very hard to concentrate on the sermon.
Does anyone reading this have any knowledge of ADHD and how one might help a family like this?
I am going to be looking to see if there is anything written by Dr. Jay Adams on the subject. But, I thought it might help to make this enquiry on The-Highway.
Thanks
Tom

Fri Oct 12, 2018 5:06 PM Quoting Scripture a Comfort? [by Tom]

A while ago I was with a group of Christians who were discussing the resent death of a friend's baby.
One of the men shared how someone who meant well quoted Romans 8:28 to the mother of the baby.
He said that he felt like punching the person for saying it.
As I thought of that, I am reminded of some time ago, when I was in hospital for 10 days. I was very sick and had no idea if I was going to live or die. One of the things I remember during that time was that very Scripture, Romans 8:28 and a few other verses I had committed to memory because I couldn't even read my Bible. That verse was an enormous comfort to me, as I contemplated on it's truth.
My question, seeing how everyone in that Christian group agreed with him that it was very inappropriate to quote Scripture to a mother in morning. Were they correct?

Hello,
I have a good friend who has been reading a lot of online articles and listening to broadcasts by Dr. Michael Heiser. He wrote a book called The Unseen Realm which she's also reading.

He is a professor at Liberty University and Scholar-in-Residence for Logos Bible Software which a reformed pastor I know said is a good and helpful Bible Program.

I read a blog series by Dr. Heiser’s friend Ronn Johnson called the Bible’s Big Picture in on his blog. Dr. Heiser did not agree with everything his friend teaches but evidently agreed enough to let him post on his blog. Dr. Heiser later wrote his own thoughts on the atonement.

http://drmsh.com/bibles-big-story/ Ronn Johnson is a follower of NT Wright.

http://drmsh.com/random-thoughts-substitutionary-atonement/

I have found very few people online that will say anything bad about his teaching aside from James White and Ken Ham. Dr. Heiser is an “expert in Semitic Languages” so it is claimed that one cannot refute his teachings unless one has a Ph. D in his field of study.

His credentials: http://serveliterary.com/authors/dr-michael-s-heiser/

Your comments are welcome.

Tue Oct 02, 2018 4:17 AM Looking for information [by Tom]
A friend recently sent me information on a supposed 'Arch of Baal' that has been errected in Washington DC. I have been looking for information about it, but so far the information I am getting is by people such as Jonathan Cahn, who wrote the book 'The Harbinger'. Needless to say, I do not trust these sources.

Can anyone give some information I can trust?

What does 'ites' mean at the end of a name. I assume it denoted a group of people, but how big is the group. Could it be just a family or does it mean something almost as big as a nation

The reason asking is that in 2 Samuel 23, many of the men named as the most loyal and fiercest fighters for King David had an 'ite' in the name describing them. I also assume these men were Jews, and not foreigners. I somehow thought a name with an 'ite' meant foreigners to the Jews, but not sure now.
