1. Dr Brown, hi! I’d vote for you, by the way. Your presidency would certainly shake up this nation in a very interesting way. Unfortunately, the media would go after you even harder than they did against Sarah Palin. Nevertheless, I would support you, and I’d definitely pray for you everyday. That reminds me of the fact that I need to pray for our current president everyday. It would be easy to want to pray for you because I generally agree with you and find you to be a pleasant person. It’s harder to pray for those whom you don’t agree with.

  2. What does a person do if they experience that the Love of God is far too deep for them? If the love is so precious that they dare not enter it, for fear of harming that love?

    For long time, I struggled to know and do (questioned what was required of me)… but then I just went back to doing what I KNEW was what He wanted… until I ran into the love… then I backed out…

  3. There is a common statement/verse: “The heart of man is deceptive and wicked above all things; who can know it?”

    Question: Does this apply to the NEW CREATION? Is the new heart, where God puts HIS Law, STILL “deceitful and wicked above all things” ????
    -I ask that to ask this: At what point do I trust that something in my mind or heart is “from God”?
    -I ask that to ask this: Do these people mean to say that the only way I can know God is through the Bible?
    (One of the FEW people I have felt the pure presence of Jesus from was a lady who recently converted (within 6 months, if I’m not mistaken), and who was completely in love with Jesus, and who did not like or trust the Bible, but had been an “energy healer”, and related to Jesus on terms of “vibration” and “energy”.)
    -Paul talks about “the Voice that speaks to us from Heaven” in Hebrews – what about that? Is this referring to Christ reigning in our hearts through faith (“The Kingdom of Heaven is within you.”)?
    -Do these people actually think I have to read and know the whole bible to know Jesus???

  4. Paul says, “God put teachers in the body for the work of the ministry, for the perfecting of the saints..”
    John says, “..the anointing teaches you all things, and you don’t need any man to teach you”
    Scripture says, “each man will know God, and no man will say to his brother, ‘know the Lord’, for ALL shall know ME.’ Does this EVEN INCLUDE the Scriptures? “Isaiah SAW HIS GLORY, and wrote…” Even Isaiah SAW something (the Laodiceans couldn’t see, for a comparison) The Scriptures are writings of people who knew the Lord and were telling others “know the Lord” – is the former verse Scriptural proof that I don’t need the Scriptures to know God? Paul said, “Through the Law, I died to the Law.”

    Can someone help me to understand the validity of these seemingly incompatible verses?

  5. Daniel,

    You can trust the scripture…all of it. Paul did, and recommended doing what it taught to His son in the faith, Timothy.
    2 Timothy 3
    15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
    16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
    17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
