1  Fellowship / Witnessing / DVD Tracts on: February 28, 2010, 05:01:00 AM
FYI: Here’re some witnessing tools you may be interested in: http://dvdtract.com
Nothing for sale there.
A DVD is almost always perceived as having value even when the contents are unknown.
People are more open to a DVD, then a tract, and the interaction affords opportunity for testimony.

The DVD could speak for itself, but I almost always tell people what it is, so as not to “ambush” them.
Particularly, since I like to pair it with a very inexpensive 5x8 glossy NT. (either NIV or en Español)
...But I hesitate to give the link lest it be considered spam.
You could probably google “giveaway bibles”, though.
(hint: it rhymes with biblica)

I simply tell them that I’m not affiliated with any organization (I’m not) to alleviate any fears.
Then I ask them if they’d like a New Testament with a DVD.
That way people know what I am giving them and those who accept it aren’t likely to toss them away.

I just put some in my backpack and hop on my bike.
At first, it’s a bit scary. But soon it becomes a joyful adventure.
I’ve only been sharing for a few weeks, but it's the most exciting part of my day.
‘Something I really can’t wait to do – at least setting up the situation where people can come to know Jesus.
I’m no evangelist or anything, but I don’t think we have to be “called” to do this little bit.


NOTE: I’m in the Southwest and the ‘home depot crew” is particularly receptive.
While I don’t really speak Spanish, gmail can be set up to translate incoming email into English.
Google translate seems to do an adequate job of translating English to Spanish.
2  Theology / General Theology / Re: The Holy Spirit on: February 28, 2010, 04:05:54 AM
I see that this topic is old, but I feel it is an important one, as I oft times hear Christians pray to the Holy Spirit and offer Him worship.

Hi Gaurav,
I believe you are right, the Holy Spirit should not be worshiped, but the Holy Spirit is not an “it”.
He is a person who can teach and comfort (and even be offended).
However, He never calls attention to Himself, but He testifies of Jesus. (1 John 5:6-8)

When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you. All that the Father has is mine; therefore I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you.
John 16:13-15

Jesus told us to worship the Father. (John 4;23)
Jesus said He did not speak His own words, but what He heard the Father saying. (John 8:28)(John 5:19)
He told us not to ask Him for anything, but to pray directly to the Father. (Mat 6:9)(John 16:23)
The Holy Spirit testifies of Jesus and communicates the things of God, but He does not seek glory for Himself – only for the Father and the Son.
I believe (know) the Holy Spirit speaks to us today, but whatever He says is always in agreement with the words or intent of Scripture.

It’s my opinion (and I think Scripture backs me up) that when people worship the Holy Spirit, it probably causes Him grief, since it does not glorify the Father or the Son.

I find it interesting the God does not correct His children more concerning the errors we practice.
Since we have the Scripture, there will be many things to account for.

May God have mercy on us all for our ignorance of His Book and for following our own ways.

Hi,
I’m a Spirit led follower of Jesus – without denomination.
I’ve been a Christian for 26 years.
Two years ago the Lord led me to begin keeping the Sabbath.
