It’s those “wolves at the door” that bring about the accusations of Christians being hypocrites.

Hey Sue, you went to spam for some reason, sorry about that.
Good point you make there.
September 2, 2016 at 12:27
That is hard. But making that stand and holding on to it really works. Sickness, finances, whatever the wolf looks like we can stand on our promise from God. The greater the wolf the stronger my FAITH becomes.

The wolves are not only howling at the door, some are already inside disguised as sheep.

Wally, its nice to be in lala land but false doctrine is everywhere. Satan plants his main false teachers where they would do the worst which is in two places. 1.Family, 2. church. The church that one goes to might be sound but Satan has a person in the pews ready to sting his poison on the weak and immature believers to weaken their faith.

Well dunno about you but I try to stay out of la la land
September 2, 2016 at 14:46
By lala land which it seems to be misunderstood is that sometimes we are unaware of our surroundings. Wolves are everywhere so we must be alert and not asleep like in lala land.
September 2, 2016 at 14:50
I agree and that’s why I try to stay out of that state of mind

Wolves don’t howl at the door, they stalk from the inside so as to strike with precision.
September 2, 2016 at 14:10
Well in this case I really wasn’t talking about doctrinal issues so much as some folks who talk big in the safety of the church but won’t stand up for the Faith in the outside world

People come against a Christian SO strongly! All you have to do is open your mouth. It depends on who your talking to (some people will welcome the discussion), and also your approach. But it will happen, as long as you are talking to others about Jesus.

Indeed and sadly it seems far worse on line than I have ever seen in real life

Wally I was just looking at some Christian memes that someone posted and wow those anti-Christian comments were unbelievable. You’re right, they really let us, or God, have it online. I guess because it’s so non-confrontational an environment, in a physical sense. First I think that they don’t understand anything spiritually, judging by their comments. Second, if you think about it, all of the notes and commentaries that we now have from all of those wonderful preachers all over are really spiritually discerned . Even though they are available widespread, for anyone, how would anyone REALLY understand even that without the help of the Holy Spirit? I don’t think they would be able to-not fully.

I am going to call you Dlink if that’s ok?
I often wonder if some folks would even think about acting the way they do in person as they do online? Surely not, as such behavior would get on jailed or fired. On the other hand, I can say absolutely that there is nothing I would say here that I would not say in person.
On your last point…you are correct. No one can come to Jesus unless the Holy Spirit convicts them. Although I do happen to believe He calls to all men(and women of course). Further, until one receives the gift of God’s salvation, conviction is the only message He has for you. Only after that will the Spirit share further truths of God’s Word. Until then, all of their fancy talk is just smoke and mirrors, but no reality.

I agree, I think it’s all of mankind. It lines up with Scripture and with God’s character as He describes.
September 2, 2016 at 20:02
Yep, yep. I believe that. Not all agree, but I suppose we won’t ever all agree on everything, and it’s something I won’t argue about with folks.
If its not doctrinal issues which by the way without correct doctrine one cannot be saved as we see this with the Jehovah Witness who’s doctrine of the Deity of Jesus is way out in the left field. Then, I don’t understand your post. Wolves in scripture is used primarily as false teachers.
September 2, 2016 at 15:00
Yes I agree some doctrines must be correct and I teach that concept regularly. I also understand how wolves are often portrayed in scripture.
But in this case I meant just as I said earlier. It’s easy for some to talk tough in the safety of the church house but not so easy in the real world. In this case the reference to wolves is more generic in the sense of hostilty
September 2, 2016 at 15:10
Oh OK, when I see or here the word wolves, what comes to my mind is someone who’s intention is to detour ones faith in Jesus Christ. A wolf is used in the New Testament to illustrate the character and purposes of the devil, to steal, kill and destroy. One can study the nature of a wolf and understand pretty quickly that it is a very vicious animal. Displaying a lack of or none of: mercy, humbleness and submission. A thirst for blood drives the beast, with a desire to gulp it down with the victims life. That is a picture of Satan.

You’ve given me a topic for a Cookie
September 2, 2016 at 15:20
Well ok den
September 2, 2016 at 15:23
I guess you’re just gonna have stop posting these “just a thought.” Obviously they are a little deep for some folks, lol.
September 2, 2016 at 15:26
Eh…I have been known to be vague at times
I can see how it might have been confusing
September 2, 2016 at 15:53
Who are the wolves at the door? Do you honestly think you, an evangelical Christian in the US, are being persecuted? That’s an honest question.
September 2, 2016 at 15:58
No…I don’t actually. At least not in the classic sense of persecution, i.e. getting killed, etc.
Do I think there is a large contingent of non believers with a concerted agenda to shut us up? Well, or course there is…shall I introduce you to yourself?
September 2, 2016 at 16:05
I’m not trying to shut you up. You can believe in whatever you like, Wally. That’s none of my business. The moment, however, you take these beliefs outside your circle, well…
September 2, 2016 at 16:08
Like I said John, allow me to introduce you to yourself. Obviously to deny me the ability to take my beliefs outside my circle is the same as shutting me up
Don’t waste any more of my time John.
September 2, 2016 at 16:34
Do I knock on your door, Wally? Do I proselytize on the street?
And please, don’t try and say people should respect your beliefs. Do you respect the beliefs of ISIS? Do you respect the beliefs of the KKK? Of course not, and the same applies here.
But again, you can believe whatever you like. The moment, however, you turn evangelical and take it public, you will be met with rational rebuttals. The moment you start to meddle in social policy, well, then you’ll find yourself in a fight.
Just keep it to yourself.
Is that so hard to do?
