Okay fam .. here is a challenge, see if you can dissect and address this mess below

Quote :

The problem with the Protestant faith and theology, ESPECIALLY in today's time, is that we have this "kick up our feet" expression of faith. We are LAZY! YES our faith is supposed to be active, but theologically speaking, we would teach passively "it don't take all that". Then the ones that teach this also have the audacity to say things like "where are the signs and wonders?"

If your faith was not "mobile" and "active" from the start (salvation), how on Earth do you expect to get active power of GOD working through you? To get there from the lazy man theology, it takes time and breaking away from a one-sided teaching of GOD's Word.

I will challenge any theologian to lift their head up from the waters of doctrine just for a moment to breathe in from the winds of the Spirit and watch signs wonders and miracles MULTIPLY. I speak this not from theory, but from experience. We are so aware of the Pharisee, but we ignored the Sadducee and they have slipped into your doctrines.

Very interesting.

I was often told to "lift up my head from the waters of doctrine" in different terms. I was told that I looked at things too critically and that I need to just let go and let God!

Quote :
Mat 12:39 But he answered them, "An evil and adulterous generation seeks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah.

Signs and wonders, huh? What does Christ say about those who seek for a sign? Why do we need signs today, if Christ has been raised and the Lord has given us His word? We don't need signs and wonders. This generation needs faith in Christ!

And......

Quote :
Mat 16:1 And the Pharisees and Sadducees came, and to test him they asked him to show them a sign from heaven.

I'd rewrite the last sentence to say, "We are so aware of how to be Pharisees and Sadducees seeking signs. So much so that we have slippery doctrines that don't reflect the character of Christ."

It's true that doctrine divides. It's also true that love unifies. The unity we have in the faith is rooted and grounded in truth and love. Remove truth (right theology and doctrine) from the mix and you have less than Biblical unity. Remove love and you have no unity. Love causes us to seek truth and share that truth with others so that we become more unified. God is truth, and as we are more acquainted with His truth, the closer we are to Him, and the closer we become to each other
