Christian View of Life and Living

a.  Bible reality shock #1.  What this means
is that God the Father, God the Son, and
God the Holy Spirit are ALL* working
together for the good of the dedicated
Christian {"all that will live godly in Christ
Jesus"}, and actively "without variation or
shadow of turning" right now in this world.

"And we know that ALL* things work
together for good to those who love
God, to those who are the called
according to His purpose."  (Romans

b.  Bible reality shock #2.  God deals with
His own on a need basis, not on a want
basis.  The world motivates you according
to what you deserve to satisfy your wants,
or that they can lead you to think are the
community needs of you and your

"And do not be conformed to this world,
but be transformed by the renewing of
your mind, that you may prove what is
that good and acceptable and perfect will
of God."  (Romans 12:2)

c.  Bible reality shock #3.  God chastises
only those He loves, so you are fortunate
to recognize chastisement as the love of
God for a child that is His own.  Only a child
of God gets this training toward
righteousness.  Take the example of Jesus,
the real Jesus of the Bible and of the
sermon on the mount.

"Now no chastening seems to be joyful
for the present, but painful, nevertheless,
afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of
righteousness to those who have been
trained by it."  (Hebrews 12:3)

Heart God Separates the Minority
Righteous from the Majority Wicked.
Psalm 37 Part II.  Introduction to a
Christian Philosophy of Life and Living.
A Bible Based Philosophy of Life and
Living Based on the Wicked versus the
Messages for the Masses.

5.  Needs versus Wants. "O You of little
faith"  (Matthew 6:30)  and "For your
Heavenly Father knows that you have
the need of all these things."  (Matthew

How can you tell the difference between
the "of the world" and "of the Father"?  
Or the difference for a Christian in being
in the world without being of the world.  
One key to understanding the difference
is by way of the Bible subjects of needs
versus wants.

Psalm 23:  "The LORD is my
shepherd; I shall not want."

7.  GNC for Guidance, Navigation, and
Control, a short on God's Special
Guidance for the serious Christian.

8.  Moore City: Have you Seen Anything
Like It?

"Has anything like this happened in your
days, or even in the days of your
fathers?"  (Joel 1:2b)

9.  "...And the Called According to His

10.  Promise of Guidance from the LORD
God Himself if requested.

"Trust in the LORD with all thine heart;
and lean not unto thine own
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he
shall direct thy paths"  (Proverbs 3:5.6
