To contribute please read these brief guides:
"Examine yourselves"..."Prove your own selves". We go about our lives as if there is no real problem and yet all of these problems exist all around us. For thousands of years we have approached these same old problems in the same old analytical ways. And to what effect?
Drugs, anger, lust, theft, anxiety, depression, pride, obsession, slander, lying, etc.., etc...; do we just accept that they are the human condition and suffer the consequences there of? Where are the millenniums of scientific insight and knowledge and logical deduction?
You suffer. I suffer. The world suffers. Why?
How do these destructive traits and issues figure into the Gospel of Jesus Christ? Are we truly 'new creatures' in Christ?
If you are at all curious... If you are suffering through any of this... If you know of someone that is struggling through this now... You owe it to yourself to hear this matter out.
It is in our weakness, when we've come to our wits end, when we've tried all of the patchwork of secular self helps and clinical treatments to no lasting avail... this is when the power of our God finally can shine through.
I know that you think that you've heard something like this before, but, honestly hear this one out.
