For what is you Life?... James 4:14

In our present day as with the materialism we have we as Christians so eaily for get why we are in this world. We are so short sighted. What I am trying to say that to many times we are so busy with our day to day that we forget the who purpose of which we are left in this world, that is to tell the lost about Christ. This is our duty. We forget how little time we have in this world and how we will be jusdged for all our carelessnes for this lost and dying world. Yes how may people in one day do we come in contact with that we don't care or see their spiritual need! Lord awake us.. " Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame." I Cor 15:34 When will we awake? "How many people will Know my Name in HELL?!?! Have I, have you been faithful in to be a witness? What is your life? Why did God save you/me To live a life to Fulfil the American dream? After all He has done for you and me how can we be selfish and live for our-self?

What it means to be a Biblical Fundamentalist?


         What it means to be a Biblical Fundamentalist?
“Fundamentalism is a topic of much conflict among the Bible believing Baptists in our day” Dr. Dalton. Should we or should we not be called Fundamentalist? First of all, allow me to define what it means to be a Biblical Fundamentalist. 
There are many Myths about what makes someone a Fundamentalist.One such myth is known as the “Cole Myth”, named after historian Stewart Cole who was somewhat of a sloppy historian. This myth is also known as the Five Fundamentals, which are the inerrancy of Scripture, the virgin birth, the vicarious atonement, the resurrection of Christ, and the miracles Jesus preformed. 
I find however,a problem with this “myth” because there are lot more truths that we as true Fundamentalists believe. Another conflict I find is that some other religious groups also believe in these five fundamentals and yet they are wrong.
On the other hand, we see a surge of “fundamental” and radical groups prevalent today. Are people going to think we are also radical Islamic groups? Not if you truly know what it means to be a Biblical Fundamentalist. True Biblical Fundamentalism is supposed to be New Testament Christianity. Let us look at some characters in the New Testament.
Firstly, we see in the N.T. that Paul was aggressive against what was wrong. Therefore, we as Biblical Fundamentalist must stand up against wrong or in other words be militant. A proverb that I have heard from my youth states “There is no need to stand up for the right, unless you are going to stand up against the wrong.” We must stand up for the right and stand against the wrong like Paul.
Secondly, we learn from the N.T. Christians that they made obedience to the Bible their basis for fellowship or Separation.  Another aspect of Biblical Fundamentalism is that we must, like the N.T. Christians, measure everything by the Bible. The Bible must be our standard.
  Lastly, and perhaps the most important, yet often the most neglected,is that we must follow the N.T. Christian’s example in accomplishing the Great Commission. This commission is accomplished through local churches planting other local churches. To summarize what a Biblical Fundamentalist means, it is a person who is vigilant, militant,a contender for the faith, and one that believes and lives out the primacy of the local church. “Those who deny the militancy and separation of historic Fundamentalism are trying to rewrite history. Instead of admitting that they have repudiated biblical Fundamentalism and have compromised the Word of God and adopted New Evangelicalism, these revisionists are trying to redefine Fundamentalism to fit their backslidden condition.” David Cloud
   We must be reminded that the fist stem of apostasy is the attitude that militance is not important. Is not this apathy that we see in our churches now days? May we be contenders for the faith and stand against wrong whether it be by life or by death.

Decision making

As a young person we know we have many dicesions in life to make. So I found this interesting to use in life. Begin with prayer. Frame your attitude into one of trust and obedience as you commit the decision to prayer. There's no reason to be fearful in decision making when you are secure in the knowledge that God has your best interest in mind.
Jeremiah 29:11
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Define the decision. Ask yourself if the decision involves a moral or non-moral area. It is actually a little easier to discern the will of God in moral areas because most of the time you will find clear direction in God's Word. If God has already revealed his will in Scripture, your only response is to obey. Non-moral areas still require the application of biblical principles, however, sometimes the direction is harder to distinguish.
Psalm 119:105
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.

Be ready to accept and obey God's answer. It's unlikely that God will reveal his plan if he knows already that you won't obey. It is absolutely essential that your will be completely submitted to God's. When your will is humbly and fully submitted to the Master, you can have confidence that he will illuminate your path.
Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
do not depend on your own understanding.
Seek his will in all you do,
and he will show you which path to take.

Exercise faith. Remember too, that decision making is a process that takes time. You may have to resubmit your will over and over again to God throughout the process. Then by faith, which pleases God, trust him with a confident heart that he will reveal his will.
Hebrews 11:6
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

Seek concrete direction. Begin investigating, evaluating and gathering information. Find out what the Bible says about the situation? Gain practical and personal information that relates to the decision, and begin writing down what you learn.
Obtain counsel. In difficult decisions it's wise to get spiritual and practical counsel from the godly leaders in your life. A pastor, elder, parent, or simply a mature believer can often contribute important insight, answer questions, remove doubts and confirm inclinations. Make sure to choose individuals who will offer sound biblical advice and not just say what you want to hear.
Proverbs 15:22
Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed.

Make a list. First write down the priorities you believe God would have in your situation. These are not the things that are important to you, but rather the things that are most important to God in this decision. Will the outcome of your decision draw you closer to God? Will it glorify him in your life? How will it impact those around you?
Weigh the decision. Make a list of the pros and cons connected with the decision. You may find that something on your list clearly violates the revealed will of God in his Word. If so, you have your answer. This is not his will. If not, then you now have a realistic picture of your options to help you make a responsible decision.
Choose your spiritual priorities. By this time you should have enough information to establish your spiritual priorities as they relate to the decision. Ask yourself which decision best satisfies those priorities? If more than one option will fulfill your established priorities, then choose the one which is your strongest desire!
Sometimes God gives you a choice. In this case there is no right and wrong decision, but rather a freedom from God to choose, based on your preferences. Both options are within God's perfect will for your life and both will lead to the fulfillment of God's purpose for your life.

Act on your decision. If you have arrived at your decision with the sincere intention of pleasing the heart of God, incorporating biblical principles and wise counsel, you can proceed with confidence knowing that God will work out his purposes through your decision.
Romans 8:28
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
