Christian Back to Basics

.

Like I said in our Study Guide, this teaching not being beneficial at this point in time is an important question and one which deserves a fuller answer because although God’s Word can break through darkness like nothing else and slice through lies like a hot knife, there are times with any Christian Teaching, where it might not have the full impact.  In most instances the above is very true however there are individuals who have came through, or in some very difficult situations and states of mind and for them I’d say this.  I am first and foremost a Christian Pastor in the local church and in the Body of Christ and let me share with you from experience and from God’s Word, that nothing comes close to the advice, support and counsel of our Pastor’s, Church Oversight and Christian friends. Nothing comes close, no articles, websites or Christian Blogs however good and beneficial at the time. God’s design is for fellowship, every single book in the New Testament was written to either Churches or Overseers of Churches so please never doubt where God heart truly is.

From experience, I came back to God in 2002 after having backslid in my teenage years and I was a real mess, a real mess!  Through my years of partaking in most of the sins my choice of life had to offer, I had taken on many issues spiritually and emotionally all of which took time to work out but for the most part, it was God working through the individuals he had set around me and through much support and fellowship, God brought me back to a place where I was at peace with him and able to seek him with all my heart.  If it wasn’t for those individuals, I would have fallen but God never gave up and some individual Christians had to show me some major grace and patience and for that I’ll always be grateful.

.

From experience,  the teachings contained on this website are hugely beneficial and I’ve had the satisfaction of seeing their effect in other peoples lives firsthand but friend, these teachings need to go hand in hand with seeking God, prayer and fellowship with other believers just like any teaching available on the worldwide web. If I was to teach you otherwise, then I wouldn’t be a good teacher nor a good Pastor.

.

So, for most instances these teachings are extremely beneficial and I’d go as far to say absolutely crucial for a Christians stability and growth however in those extreme circumstances, the individual will need the care, support and deliverance if need be, through a Spirit filled Pastor and their close Christian friends.  I hope this has answered this important question……
