Zomok, steve replied to Pastor Rolf Anderson's discussion The Eerie Similarities Between the Beginning of Nazi Germany and America Today in American Christian Issues
"This is not a new idea that you are pointing out.  The control mentioned is the same whether it is called communism, socialism, or fascism. A good primer on this is titled, Liberal Fascism", by Jonah Goldberg.  People for justice need to educate themselves on these things.  It is the Christian way to gain knowledge and support justice.  We can not just sit back with moronic grins and say, "I'm just gonna wait for Jesus to come"...God works through his people!!!"

Dr. Derek P. Blake commented on Dr. Derek P. Blake's article Session 4 - Expanding on the basic tool kit in Healing - Jesus' Gift to You
"This whole thing was written as a six-week training course for a group of people at church who wanted to get into ministry. The course is basically Christian Counselling (Person Centered Counselling with a Christian base), ministry is all about strongholds and perceptions, we deal with a stronghold by changing the perception to a Christian one. I wrote it based upon courses that I had done about twenty-five years ago, I found then so useful dealing with our clients as well as my staff, even though it was mainly for use in a church environment."

"I like this very much, Derek. At this moment, I have no idea what I'd put in each window pane of the matrix, but I'm going to study this. I particularly love what is said regarding empathy. If anyone ever did this for others, it truly was Christ. I'm thinking about several of His encounters with individuals in the four gospels, such as the woman at the well and the widow of Nain, where it says His heart went out to her when He saw the funeral procession. There's a great deal here to think about!"

It's so refreshing and a blessing to be on a Christian site where it's ok to talk about things such as mental illness and psychology and counseling without fear!
  • Zomok, steve We should stress mercy instead of condemnation. Kindness is a language understood by nearly every creature.

  • Pastor Rolf Anderson Absolutely, Sister Shannon. To be able to be open, without fear of condemnation is a very important feature of this site, and one I support fully. I believe Jesus would have it this way.

Amanda Shannon commented on Amanda Shannon's blog post Listen to the Lord
"Will you provide the link to the exercise. I often encounter this in people, since, as you say, everyone has a perception of self, and I've learned that we often see and want to point out in others what we ourselves are guilty of doing or being but don't realize it -- projection. For instance, when someone is judging another as being narcissistic or lazy or divisive or proud, the person herself is guilty of it and others can see it in her, too. It's like we read in Romans 2:1-4. In the Body of Christ, we are always to build up one another and forgive and our goal is for all the members to work together, each doing his or her own part. All have a job and all are different and the members that seem lesser are actually just as important as the rest, as we read in Ephesians 4:11-16."

""I realize that perhaps I have sins that others see but I don't see and they are done in ignorance or unintentionally. I believe such things will be brought to our attention if and when God feels we need to deal with them, and as we mature spiritually."

Indeed Amanda, this is always a difficult area, we all have a perception of ourselves, good or bad.  You know this is an important  part of the training to be a counsellor, in fact if you look at the material that I have posted in the 'Healing - Jesus' Gift to You' group you will find a matrix that deals with this very issue, the way others see us, which is very revealing if anyone does the exorsize."

Amanda Shannon commented on Amanda Shannon's blog post Listen to the Lord
"That's a great example, Dr. Blake, of listening to God, choosing to love, and then responding! Thanks for sharing it with me. There are people who feel so sure that they're being loving and are doing God's will but in reality they aren't even listening to God first and they are taking Scriptures out of context to suit what they're doing. They end up hurting not just the one they're mistreating but others, too, all the while justifying it by laying it at God's feet and saying it was God's leading and God's will when it's nowhere near being even God's way even to the point of accusing someone of sinning when they aren't sinning. I know that I'm not perfect and I pray and confess when I feel convicted to do so as it says in 1 John 1:9, and I realize that perhaps I have sins that others see but I don't see and they are done in ignorance or unintentionally. I believe such things will be brought to our attention if and when God feels we need to deal with them, and as we mature spiritually.…"

Dr. Derek P. Blake commented on Pamela Ann Paige's article The Apostolic Age Part Two in Christian History
"Good background notes Pamela, it may or may-not surprise you to know that the system you describe that prevailed in Greece in those days, continues today fit and well. After living in Greece for five years up until 2014, I can tell you that the ancient gods have merely changed their names, the god has become a saint. The population continues to celebrate the same feast days (given Christian names), and the make the same offering, to the sea, air fire etc. Where once they made votive offerings of valuables, by throwing them into the sea, they now do the same thing only with a crucifix. They have saints for the wine harvest, just as they had a minor god, the celebrate 'name-days' which used to be days devoted to gods. Not only this but they bow and kiss images of obscure saints, just as was the practice during the classic period. You can take polytheism out of the country but not out of the average Greek."

Pastor Rolf Anderson posted a discussion in American Christian Issues
During the 1933 German revolution, the Nazi Party’s working-class military faction, called the SA (Sturmabteilung), was largely credited for bringing them victory.  This group, also known as Storm Troopers, quickly became nothing more than thugs.  They intimidated, vandalized, brutalized and in some cases killed. Hitler used this angry, revengeful citizen army to bring himself to power. When they started threatening his control, though, he eliminated them.
Led by Ernst Röhm, the SA considered themselves the “people’s army”. They were dubbed “Brown Shirts” due to their uniform. Hitler used these Storm Troopers to sew the seeds of discourse between all the German political parties. Promising to make Germany great again, he agreed the SA would be the new army.
With a crowded political arena, Hitler’s focus on nationalism separated the National Socialist Party from the Communists. His position gained enough support to give the Nazis political control with less than 44% of the vote.

Dr. Derek P. Blake replied to Zomok, steve's discussion Amillennialism and Resurrection
"Clesr enough for me Steve, an I agree with you.  It seems to me that the church are started at the resurrection, with Jesus' victory over death and Satan, rather than our secular millennium, which was calculated in retrospective.   The first spiritual millennium did not start with the birth of the Christ child, but with the victory.  The Bible says it quite clearly in Rev 20 (below) that Satan would be bound for a thousand years and then loosed for a thousand years, that's two millennium, which ends in about fifteen years (+/-)

2 And he seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years, 3 and threw him into the pit, and shut it and sealed it over him, so that he might not deceive the nations any longer, until the thousand years were ended. After that he must be released for a little while.
7 And when the thousand years are ended, Satan will be released from his prison 8 and will come out to deceive the nations that are at the four…"

Dr. Derek P. Blake commented on Amanda Shannon's blog post Listen to the Lord
"This is strange, I was only talking to my wife about this last night, it's called 'heaping burning coals on to their head'.  As you know we just moved into a new home on Tuesday and during the move the removal truck and our car needed to use the footpath, which is about 6 to 8 feet wide with an expanse of lawn on either side.  The trucks were no problem, however my wife uses a power-chair and intended to take our dogs for a walk after the journey, her chair skidded on our neighbor's piece of lawn and left a skid mark.  Our neighbor rapped on the window and sort of nodded at the skid mark, so Dawn was upset that she's offended our neighbor on the very first day.  Yesterday we went to the supermarket to buy food and whilst there we bought a bunch of flowers for our neighbor to say sorry.  He guy is about 93 years, but his wife answered the door, with him following grumbling, Dawn explained and presented the flowers, it took the wind out of his sails and he didn't know what to say, they…"
