Changing or Unchanging - Let Me Try Again

I am convinced my point didn't come across last time.

I don't think my beliefs should not change. I can't even come close to perfect knowledge of God.

What I am guilty of and what I think the Church is guilty of is blatantly telling others that our beliefs are right. We are so proud of ourselves and so full of ourselves.

Of course, with our mouths, we say we don't have God figured out and we know beliefs change. However, with the way we try to convince others that some or all of our particular beliefs are correct, our true feelings and true pride in ourselves shows through.

Even when others point that out to us, we have a hard time admitting it. We want to be able to say we know God. I think we can know God but have to admit we have no clue about his immensity.

Changing or Unchanging?

Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.

My beliefs change.

Each time, I try to convince others of what I believe. I

If my beliefs regarding a never changing God change, what makes me think I am even in the ballpark with my beliefs?

In context or out?

James 4:17 Therefore, to one who knows the right thing to do and does not do it, to him it is sin.

I often know the right thing to do and don't do it. I am a sinner.

When I habitually ignore the right thing to do, what does that make me?

I will explain more later . . . perhaps.

Great Quote

It doesn't matter what happens to you, it matters what happens in you.

Experience is a great teacher, correct??

Why do we rely on our own experiences? Why is it we can't learn from others and their experiences? Why are we so hung up on ourselves? Why are we so selfish?

I wish I could get people to listen to some of my bad experiences before they choose to go down a path that is disgusting.

How can I teach others from my own experiences?

Why can't I get over myself and learn from other's experiences?

Father's Day

I really miss my Dad today. I can see his smile, I can hear his laugh.

I cried several times. Not bad cries, just sad cries.

Danna and I talked about really missing him today.

I got a great, great card from my son today along with many great hugs and some great I love yous.

I cried - a good cry.

I got a card from a special young lady who encouraged me greatly about my son and being his Dad.

I cried again - a good cry.

God always has a great way of making me feel warm and loved.

Sad But True

I read this quote this afternoon describing Jesus' church.

The reason it is true is because it describes me.

". . . the hands and feet of the body of Christ have been amputated, and we've been pretty much reduced to a big mouth."
