Experiencing God Day By Day:

Changed through Meditation
But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night.(Psalms 1:2)
*
Meditation means “to think deeply and continuously about something.” For a Christian, this means remaining in the presence of God and pondering each truth He reveals about Himself until it becomes real and personal in your life. This takes time. In His Sermon on the Mount, Jesus accused certain would-be followers of calling Him “Lord” and yet never doing what He told them (Luke 6:46). They had the correct truth in their heads, but it had never translated into obedience. When you meditate on Scriptures, the truth moves from your head to your heart and results in obedience. As the Psalmist said:“Your word have I hidden in my heart,/ That I might not sin against You”(Ps. 119:11).
*
When you know God’s Word in your mind but not in your heart, it means that you have learned the principles and concepts and doctrines of God, but you have not come to know Jesus personally. You can reject a doctrine, or ignore a concept, or challenge a principle, but it is much more difficult to ignore a Person. You can have Scripture in your mind and still sin against God. There are those who can recite long passages of Scripture and yet live ungodly lives. However, you cannot have Scripture fill your heart and continue to sin against God. When God’s truth is allowed to touch the deepest corner of your soul, the Holy Spirit will transform you into the image of Jesus Christ. Don’t just read your Bible, meditate on God’s Word and ask Him to change your heart.

It aint necessarily so wrote:
Your religion is detestable. If you defend or recommend it, you deserve no better than it does. If you want to stand beside your church, then share the considerable contempt for it with good cheer, and quit your whining.

Temper, temper! you act like a child throwing a temper tamper on the floor-- screaming and hitting the floor--grow up! would you.
Are you insane?
simplyput wrote:
Don't lie so much , that is detestable. You are just not mature enough to carry on a decent conversation, kinda worthless and good-for-nothing little whimp.
You are insane - and another fine example of Christian trash.
It aint necessarily so wrote:
Are you suggesting that that might not be appropriate? Why? Why do you think your church, your faith, your god or your religion deserve more?


< crickets chirping >

That's what I thought. And obviously, I agree.

By faith Araham when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for na inheritance obeyed;and he went out not knowing whither he went.
