MEN'S FELLOWSHIP AT ALFELOR RESIDENCE- AUG 10 2012

BIBLE STUDY TOPIC:  DEATH, IMMORTALITY & THE MEANING OF LIFE

Life's purpose in Christianity is to seek divine salvation through the grace of God and intercession of Christ. ( John 11:26).   

 

The    New Testament speaks of God wanting to have a relationship with humans both in this life and the life to come, which

 can happen only if  one's sins are forgiven (John 3:16–21; 2 Peter 3:9).

 

FACC MEMBERS TALKED ABOUT TRAINING OUR KIDS IN GOD'S WAYS AT THE LINEBERRY's JULY 12 BIBLE STUDY

The Thursday, July 12,  bible study at Bro. Randy’s and Sis. Cleofe’s home was the most exciting and satisfying group discussion ever where everyone actively shared their individual experiences and expressed their commitments to reform our nation’s educational system to restore God in the classroom. The 2 main bible verses referenced were:

Proverbs 22:6 - “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” and
Ephesians 6:4 - “Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and Instruction of the Lord.”
 

SUMMARY OF DISCUSSION AND REFERENCES:
As our great country accelerates its slide into economic and moral DECLINE, the present boldness of liberals/ pragmatists and the timidity of Christians those from all denominations are among the causes. Our country is failing because we Christians have abandoned our responsibility to spread the Word of God in the Bible.

Secularizing public education has been the key to our nation’s moral demise. The question of God’s existence—the most important question regarding how we should live—is no longer studied or debated in our public schools. Instead, immorality dominates our schools and our kids know more about political correctness than truth . This started when the Supreme Court banned devotional Bible reading and stifled virtually any mention of God or the Bible in our public schools. In effect, the most influential book in the history of the world is ignored in our educational system . Consequently, when God was abolished, the government becomes the God.” The results are obvious in our country today:

• life is not being protected;
• marriage is being subverted;
• judges routinely usurp our will;
• our immigration laws are being ignored;
• radical laws are passed but never read;
• mentioning God in school (unless he’s Allah) results in lawsuits;
• school curriculums promote political correctness and sexual deviance as students fail at basic academics;
• unimaginable debt is being piled on our children while leftist organizations like Planned Parenthood and ACORN receive our tax dollars; and
• our religion and free speech rights are about to be eroded by “hate” crimes legislation that can punish us for quoting the Bible.

Ironically, the first public school system in the U.S. established the school to teach kids how to read the Bible so that old deluder Satan could not deceive them. Most of our first universities were established to teach and propagate a complete Christian worldview. Harvard’s charter read, “Let every Student be plainly instructed, and earnestly pressed to consider well, the main end of his life and studies is, to know God and Jesus Christ which is eternal life (John 17:3) and therefore to lay Christ in the bottom, as the only foundation of all sound knowledge and Learning.” The founders of Harvard knew that all truth is God’s truth.

That’s why the church cannot abandon its calling. Let’s reengage at every level of society, starting from our family. Be a beacon for Christ and truth in whatever we teach our children. There is hope if we commit our trust in Christ.

FACC FAMILY FELLOWSHIP @ ICHIBAN REST.- Dec 8 2011

 

                                                                                                     

                                                                                 Bible Study Topic The Gift of Christmas :  Sharing Hope

            

THE REAL AND BEST CHRISTMAS GIFT -  Giving Hope -

 

1. DEFINITION OF HOPEa.     

 

 a.  Modern-  “to wish for, to expect, but without certainty of the fulfillment; to desire very much,

                       but with no real assurance of getting your desire.”

b.      Biblical-  “an indication of certainty; a strong and confident expectation; 

                 akin to trust and a confident expectation”

   - By its very nature, hope stresses two things: (a) futurity, and (b)

     invisibility. It deals with things we can’t see or haven’t received or

     both .

            Romans 8:24-25  “24 For in hope we have been saved, but hope that is seen is not

                                         hope; for why does one also hope for what he  sees? 25 But if we

                                         hope for what we do not see, with   perseverance we wait eagerly for it.”

  -  Hope is synonymous with salvation and its many blessings, past, present, and future, as

     promised in Scripture.

 

2.      Reasons for Hopelessness

a.      Sufferings – Depression and Medical Illness;  Alcohol & Drug Problems;

                      Hunger and Poverty

b.      Facts & Figures

 

                                                              i.      Depression (psychiatric disorders, medical ilness, etc.)

1.      15% of all elderly people suffer depression and 25% of them will try suicide. 

2.      Over 60 percent of all people who die by suicide suffer from major depression. 

3.      Depression affects nearly 10 percent of Americans ages 18 and over in a given year.

4.      More Americans suffer from depression than coronary heart disease (17 million),

      cancer (12 million) and HIV/AIDS (1 million).

5.      About 15 percent of the population will suffer from clinical depression at some time

      during their lifetime. Thirty percent of all clinically depressed patients attempt suicide;

      half of them ultimately die by suicide.

6.      Depression in care homes is greater than among those who live in their own homes or

      with their own families

7.      Depression is more common in those with a co-existing illness, such as diabetes,

      cancer or stroke.    

 

                                                           ii.      Hunger and Poverty

1.      Although related, food insecurity and poverty are not the same.  Unemployment rather than poverty is a stronger predictor of food insecurity.

2.      Poverty 

a.       In 2009, 43.6 million people (14.3 percent) were in poverty.

b.      In 2009, 8.8 million (11.1% percent) families were in poverty.

c.       In 2009, 24.7 million (12.9 percent) of people ages 18-64 were in poverty.

d.      In 2009, 15.5 million (20.7 percent) children under the age of 18 were in poverty.

e.       In 2009, 3.4 million (8.9 percent) seniors 65 and older were in poverty.

3.      Food Insecurity and Very Low Food Security

a.       In 2010, 48.8 million Americans lived in food insecure households, 32.6

      million adults and 16.2 million children.

b.      In 2010, 14.5 percent of households (17.2 million households) were food insecure.

c.       In 2010, 5.4 percent of households (6.4 million households) experienced

      very low food security.

d.      In 2010, households with children reported food insecurity at a significantly higher

      rate than those without children, 20.2 percent compared to 11.7 percent.

e.       In 2010, households that had higher rates of food insecurity than the national

      average included households with children (20.2 percent), especially households

      with children headed by single women (35.1 percent) or single men (25.4 percent),

     Black non-Hispanic households (25.1 percent) and Hispanic households (26.2 percent).

f.       In 2009, 8.0 percent of seniors living alone (925,000 households) were food insecure.

g.       Food insecurity exists in every county in America, ranging from a low of 5 percent.                                                         

 

 3.      Examples of How we give/provide/instill Hope

 

a.      Every day I go to work and spend time with suffering people. They come to me for help and for comfort.

      They open up to me with problems that they would not tell anyone else. They put trust in me — even if I

       am not able to fix their problems. I serve as a source of healing, but I also am a source of hope.

 

b.      Christmas is not about prosperity and comfort. It is about help to the hopeless.  The central doctrine to

      this season is the incarnation: God becoming man. God didn’t become a man because he thought it would

      be nice to spend time with us; he did so because we were hopeless. He didn’t come to live in comfort, but to

       be poor. He didn’t come to help good people, but to rescue the outcast. He didn’t come to hear cheers for

       saving people, he came to be rejected and so to identify with rejects. He scorned the self-righteous, and

        embraced the shameful.

 

c.       Yes, it is great to give gifts and be with family —  But there is no escaping the pervasive pain and suffering

       in this world. The Christmas message is not about sheltering ourselves from that suffering, but instead going

       out among the suffering and providing comfort.   Whether you do it to imitate God or simply to be a good

       person, we can perpetuate Christmas by helping instead of hiding.

 

d.      Share the Words of God.  Biblical hope is not an escape from reality or from problems. It doesn’t leave us idle,

        drifting or just rocking on the front porch. If our hope is biblical and based on God's promises, it will put us in gear.

 

                                                              i.      It changes how we see ourselves. It changes us into pilgrim persons, people who see this life as temporary sojourn.

2 Peter 1:13; 1 Peter 2:11

                                                            ii.      It changes what we value. Hope, if biblical, makes us heavenly minded rather than earthly minded. Our Lord’s

                                    words here blast our deception away. - Matthew 6:19-21   

                                                          iii.      It affects what we do with our lives—our talents, time, treasures.

Titus 2:1-13;  1 John 3:1-3  

                                                          iv.      The Christian life, if it is grasped according to God's truth, is a magnificent obsession with an eternal hope, a hope

                                    that does not lead to an escapist attitude, but to the pursuit of life on a whole new dimension.  It gives us power to live

                                     courageously, to be all God has called us to be in Christ.

                                                            v.      It gives us joy and peace. Romans 15:13;  Romans 5:2   

                                                          vi.      It gives us protection. - Psalm 33:18;   

                                                        vii.      It gives us strength, courage, boldness. - Psalm 31:24  

                                                      viii.      It gives us endurance, comfort, confidence in the face of death.

1 Thessalonians 4:13
