BLOG Etiquette

 

 

 

 

Please Be Respectful

 

 

 

Please comment on the bottom of any page following our BLOG Guidelines below in order to Meet-Up together with others on this website for fellowship and to teach one another “so that weighing in what was said, . . . you ALL may learn and ALL be encouraged” (1 Corinthians 14:29-31).  Hopefully you will also Meet-Up to Spirit-practice music together in small groups and then Meet-Up to Spirit-perform together in public!  Although we’ve added a lot of content already with summary questions, actions items, and a prayer that you can “weigh in” on, this is only to start the conversation so you can ALL begin fellowshipping, “learning and being encouraged” together, and then take it to the next step to Meet-Up together!  This is called Body-of-Christ-Ministry!

 

At the bottom of each page is a BLOG section for your comments:  Please keep to the specific topic of the page in order to minimize confusion: “I strongly urge you to ongoingly do all things decently and in order, for God is not a God of confusion but of peace” (1 Corinthians 14:33, 40).

 

Also, please remember that as Christians we are “absolutely not in fact of this world” (a) and officially commanded by Jesus to “ongoingly unconditionally-love one another” – this “glory of Christ given to us to be ‘one’ as the Triune God is one” proves we genuinely, experientially, relationally epiginosko know God, and distinguishes us as Christ’s disciples in this world (b)!  <Notes> a) John 15:19, b) John 13:34-35, 17:22-23; 1 John 4:7.

 

As BLOG moderator I will have to edit or delete any comments that are worldly or unloving to maintain a respectful environment for others.  Christians are urged to “thoroughly judge/critique (a) ourselves so that we will not be judged/critiqued (b) by the Lord.”  If we don’t, the Lord will end up having “to train us as little children (c) so that we are not condemned (d) with the world” (e), and so really don’t want to get to that point!  <Notes> a) diakrino: to judge thru-the-realizing-channel-of being thorough, thus to investigate or discriminate thoroughly either rightly by close-reasoning or wrongly by going too far or vacillating back and forth, as determined by the context, b) krino, c) paideuo, d) katakrino, e) 1 Corinthians 11:31-32.

 

Therefore, before you start writing, please conversationally-pray that the Holy Spirit will speak through you instead of just writing from your gnosis head knowledge or fleshly desires!

 

Enjoy your time ministering to one another!  May the Lord bless you as you do!

  1. Missionary Work

    In the beginning, after three years of tedious struggle, Everett finally became fluent in the Pirahã language. He translated the Gospel of Mark, and shared it with some natives. He had no doubt that the Bible was so spiritually powerful that anyone exposed to it could not help but be overwhelmed by its truth, and inspired to rush toward a heaven-bound path. Well, the natives were fascinated by the bit about John the Baptist getting his head cut off, but nothing else had any effect on them whatsoever.

    His holy objective had been “to convince happy, satisfied people that they are lost and need Jesus as their personal savior.” A traditional missionary proverb says, “You’ve got to get them lost before you can get them saved.” Everett told them that Jesus could deliver them from fear, and lead them to a good life. But they didn’t live in fear, and they already enjoyed an excellent way of life.

    Another missionary proverb says that “everyone has a god-shaped hole in their heart,” but the Pirahã apparently had whole hearts. None were converted despite decades of effort. They were empirical people who expected compelling here-and-now evidence. Notions from unknown times, places, or people were beyond their realm of reality — perfectly meaningless nonsense.

    Everett had never met Jesus, because Jesus lived 2,000 years ago. He often tried to tell the Pirahã about Jesus, but stumbled. They asked, “Did you see him yourself?” “No.” “So why do you tell us about things that you have never seen?” Another time, when he read them names from his translation of the Gospel of Luke, they assumed that these were people that Everett knew. When he described crucifixion, they were aghast. It was beyond comprehension. Did Americans really do that? This information was from outer space, not here-and-now reality.

    In addition to his religious role, Everett was also a linguist, a science-based field. The scientist in him deeply respected the importance of trustworthy evidence
