Christian

Christian: A person who has put his trust in the Lord Jesus Christ and His atoning sacrifice to save him or her from the guilt and penalty (Hell) of sin. Romans 10:8-10, 13, “But what does it say? ‘The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart’ (that is, the word of faith which we preach): that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation… For whoever calls on the Name of the Lord shall be saved.”

George Washington’s Slaves: The Struggle for Independence

It’s ironic that the general who won America independence owned 300 slaves. It’s even more so that he spent his last years fighting for their freedom.

Hindrances

Almost anything a person can think of can keep us from following God.

I will only mention a few here. Money is the big problem. If not careful it can control our lives. We all have to live in this world, but we can’t let the world control us. Money itself does not interfere with our walk with Christ. It is the love of money that does interfere with our walk ( Matthew 6:19-34). Trust God, He will take care of us. This does not mean for us to quit our jobs or not earn money, it simply means God is more important. Another big problem is the media. By media I mean Internet, TV, movies, video games, magazines and any other type media outlet there is. Media is dangerous because we can become consumed with it. The media is everywhere we turn. And to make matters worse it is littered with some terrible thing’s. Nearly every commercial on TV and every advertisement on the internet try to convince us we need something and they can fill that need. They tell us how we should look, feel and act. Movies, TV and music can all be bad because they can tell us what is right and wrong. We should all be wise in what we play, watch, read and how much time we spend doing it. We should be willing to give up things that hinder our walk with God. Our Relationships with others and routines can also get our way as well as our work can. Work, relationships and routines are important but our relationship with God is much more important. Desiring a blessing from God, more than God himself can hinder our walk with God. Praying for specific things over and over, but forget about spending quality time with God. Seek first his kingdom ( Matthew 6:34). There are many more things that can hinder our walk. We ourselves can hinder and so can our pastor. Surprising but true. The followjng website will tell you more http://livingforjesus.com/10-things-that-can-distract-us-during-our-walk-with-god/ In conclusion we should give up all things that hinder our walk with God. Read and meditate on the Bible. Pray each day. Get to know God. Spend quality time with Him. In this way you will know what He desires and overcome the things that cause hindrances.

Paul

(Acts 13:6-9)

During the biblical account of Paul’s first missionary journey, Luke writes: “Then Saul, who was also called Paul…” (Acts 13:9). From this point forward, Luke only refers to the apostle as “Paul.” This shift does not reflect a name change, as has often been said, but rather a conscious decision on Paul’s part to use a name he already had. Since Paul was a Roman citizen, he would have been given three names at birth. The third was Paul’s Latin name, Paullus. Paul’s Latin name was a better fit for the predominantly Roman environment. “Saul the Pharisee” chose to be known as “Paul, citizen of Rome.”

Calvinists

A wake up call: Being friends with those whose beliefs differ from us is different from being one with them in theology. The more we know, the more we should be humble and friendly to those who oppose us. We hate false doctrines but we should try our best to win the hearts of those who teach heresies. Most Calvinists today are arrogant, and without concern for the lost souls. They don’t practice what they preach. You will notice that when they comment on threads started by those who are still not knowledgeable of right doctrines. You can’t expect unbelievers to believe what we say when we who claim to be believers fight each other. Augustine says in essentials unity in non essentials, liberty. But most calvinists cannot distinguish between essentials and non essentials. They love to debate even on minor issues (i.e. tithing) and destroy each other in the process. They are like children fighting over a piece of bread. They need to grow up like the Corinthian believers who are still living in the flesh.
