Ka Danny huhu o ke Akua

Makemake au e hoʻomaka e heluhelu i kekahi kaha puana'ī. No laila, pono hoʻolohe pono mai, ae noʻonoʻo e pili ana ina paha aole paha 'aelike' oe a me ka poe kauwa ia.

"Huhu noho wale ma ka poli o ka poe naaupo." - Albert Einstein

"Huhū ka mea, he pokole huhu." - Horace

"Mea, ua hoomaka ka huhu welau a me ka hilahila." - Beniamina Franklin

"ʻAʻole E hana i kekahi mea [mai loko mai o ka huhu], no ka mea, o oukou, e hana nā mea a pau hewa. " - kekahiʻano

Ka huhu ka mea, aole kekahi mau moʻolelo ano makou i hookuu makemake. No ka mea like huhu. Huhu hiki aku ai i awaawa, a me ka paa hoʻomauhala. Huhu hiki aku ai i ka hewa nā manaʻo hoʻoholo. Huhu kekahi manawa, a hiki wale i hiki aku ai. People pele aʻole 'oe makemake e lilo i puni o ka mea nana i lele aku i ke kumu i kekahi manawa. He mea iki lolelua ka.

Aka, eia ka leo o kuʻu nīnau: aole ke Akua e huhu? No kekahi mea e hiki ai i ke Akua o ka universe hoolapalapa hehena? Pono I manaʻo nei ko makou kikokikona keia ahiahi, e kamaʻilio i ia nīnau.

kāʻei kua

'Aʻole' oe e huli mai iaʻu me. In Exodus 17, la na kanaka o ka Iseraela hoao ke Akua, ma ka hana e like me he mea la e hiki ole paulele ia. Ma hope o na mea a pau He Ka hana mai ai no lakou, ana ia lakou kona poe kanaka, hoopakele ia lakou mai ka noho kauā kuapaʻa,, hoomaopopo ana no ka mea, o lakou, a pela no, lakou i hana, aole paulele ia. kaua pēlā lākou me Mose, a hai aku ia ia, e haawi ia lakou i ka wai, ano. Lakou i ninau aku ia ia no ke aha la oia i lawe mai iā lākou i loko o ka wao nahele, e make. A lakou nae i noi i ka ninau, "O ka Haku iwaena o kakou, aole paha?"

A o keia no keʻano o ka manaʻo'ōhumu, a me ka hoohewa ana i ke Akua ka mea wehewehe aku keia hanauna. Fast imua i Numbers 14, kekahi manawa hou, ʻaneʻane e like me ka repetitive wawahi moolelo, lakou i ua manawa hou ka hoohewa ana, a me ka i ana, e aho nō e noho hou maʻAigupita. Aole lakou i hilinai i ke Akua, e hoopakele ia lakou, ae malama i kana mau olelo hoopomaikai.

Ka mililani kai e hoomanao pu no ka poe nui o kēia mau moʻolelo. A me ko makou Verses hōʻike mai ke Akua i ka pane i ko lakou nele o ka hilinaʻi ma ia.

Huli me aʻu i kahi e 95:10-11.

No ka mea, hoʻokahi kanahā makahiki I ua huhu oia ia ia hanauna; I mai la, "Ua ka mea, he poe kanaka nona ka naau e hele auwana,a lakou i ike i koʻu mau aoao. "No laila au i hai aku i hoohiki i loko o koʻu huhu, "E loa komo i koʻu wahi maha."

Makou huli ana e noonoo ekolu pōkole heluʻai, mai keia kikokikona keia ahiahi.

I. Ka hewa hoʻonāukiukiʻana mai o ke Akua ka inaina o

Listen hou i ka kikokikona. ke Akua olelo, "No ka mea, hookahi kanaha makahiki au i ua huhu oia ia ia hanauna…" Pono ke manao nei au e olelo nani maopopo ka ninau. Ke Akua i huhu. A he ka hewa o kona poe kanaka, e hoʻonāukiukiʻana mai o kēia huhu. Aka, aole au e manao la oia e kekahi mea hou maʻaneʻi i ko lakou hewa i ke Akua huhu. Oia no ke Akua ke pane i ka hewa i.

Ka Uluwehi o aku la au i ka makua maikai, ka mea, ua aloha, a me ka poÿe känaka, a me makou he pili nani maikai. Aka, I loa maoli ike i ka mea Hanalei Moon ia ia e hele ai e noho ma. No laila, no ka mea, i ke kao keiki i makemake e loaaʻi ka waiwai, a hele wahi, Iʻano o ka manao e like me kaʻu i e pāʻani i ka holoholona hihiu. Mua au i ninau aku ia ia no kekahi mea, Iʻano a hoao e haha ​​aku ia ia iwaho, ae ike i ke ano o Hanalei Moon oia ma. "Pehea bout mau paniolo, makuakāne? Ko oukou haircut paa nanaʻoluʻolu. "A o ka poe feeler ninau e kōkua mai iaʻu pohihihi aku ina au e ninau aku ia ia ano paha hope. Aka, i koʻu mau ano, aole i hemolele. A i ka wa aʻu i ninau aku au i hiki loa ike no ka oiaio, ina oia e pane me ka olioli ("Sure, keikikāne!") a huhu ("E hele aku outta koʻu maka, keikikāne!"). He ua unpredictable ma kela aoao.

Pono kakou e manaʻo i kēiaʻano o ke unpredictability i ke Akua. Ke Akua hana ma ka pohihihi aoao. Pela ke Akua, ua unpredictable ma na aoao, aka, aohe ka mea unpredictable e pili ana i kona pane i ka hewa. It hoʻonāukiukiʻana mai o kona huhū. He olelo hoopomaikai Adamu laua me Ewa, lakou e make, ina lakou hoʻolohe i ia. No ka mea, o ka hewa ae la oia i ae la i ka lepo, a kulu kanaka ma ia mea ilalo i ka lua i ka Numbers 15. A i loko o nā hanana wai mulea ma keia kahi, Ke Akua i manawa hou ke pane me ka huhu. Ka hewa hoʻonāukiukiʻana mai o ke Akua ka inaina o.

nae, ka hopuna'ōlelo i Ka unuhi I ua huhu oia ia ia hanauna, hou literally o ia hoʻi, "I hoʻowahāwahā i ia hanauna a pau." ʻO Ia ka mea nui unuhi olelo. He hōʻike ana i kēia kiʻi o kaʻaumakua. Ke Akua, uaʻaumakua i keia poe kanaka, no ko ko lakou hulina ua. No laila, e pane nīnau ko kakou, Ke Akua, aole ia e huhu, a oia pānaʻi maila lākou i ka hewa o ka mua hanauna, me ka huhu loa, hemolele, konaʻaumakua.

Ano, ua ike au i keia e, hamo mai e ku e ia manaʻo o ke Akua kekahi kanaka ka. lakou i manao, "Ua pono i ka ole koʻu Akua ia oukou huli olelo mai nei. Koʻu Akua, aole ia e huhu. Koʻu Akua e loa e olelo aku nei ia. "Ua pono oe e e pono. Paha ko oukou akua e, aole au ei aku nei, aka, o ke Akua o ka Baibala pono hana maʻaneʻi ma loko o kēia puke.

No laila, ua nui ka pilikia maʻaneʻi? Pehea la i hiki i ka pono, hemolele ke Akua i consistently pane me ka ukiuki, a me ka huhu i konaʻaumakua? Ina I consistently i pane aku ai i kaʻu wahine me ka huhu, a i'uā ai ma kona, ka mea e lilo i mea weliweli hewa ma koʻu aoao. Ke Akua ka inaina o, nae, ka mea i hewa e like me kakou. It Aole he ano flaw.

E like me au i hai aku i keia, Aole au e haha ​​aku i ka pono e kńhuli manamananui puni, a mihi kēia no ka mea, o ke Akua o ka inaina. A e ole ia oukou ke hoomaopopo i ka pono, e mihi i ko oukou mau ole-Karistiano hoaaloha no ke Akua i ka inaina o kekahi. Ai ole ia, e pili ana i Hell. A oukou loaa ole ia oukou e hilahila e pili ana i kona hoʻokolokoloʻana i loko o ke Kauoha Kahiko, e like me kekahi mau mea huna e pili ana i ke Akua ka hewa i hala iho nei, ua pūnāwai.

Ke Akua ka inaina, aole he hewa. It O ke alanui, he Akua hemolele pane ai i ka hewa. He mea ka mea wale pane hoano i cosmic kipi, a kipi mai na kanaka i hana ma kona ano. Mai ho'āʻo i kulike ke Akua i ko oukou hae, no ka mea, oia no ka hae. Ko makou inaina, ua hewa, no ka mea, he poe hewa. Aka, ke Akua, e like me ka ke Akua pono hemolele wale nō e hiki huhū i loko o ka pono ala.

Ka hewa, oia ka mea wale no mea e angers ke Akua. A he mau angers ke Akua. A e loaa i kela hewa e pane aku i ka Akua huhu, ke ole somehow ke Akua ka inaina nona ia mau mea e hiki ke lawe mālama o.

noi: I kekahi manawa hana hewa anei kakou i ka wa, makou āu e hoowalewaleia e manao ua i ka mea ino. I ike mua au he Karistiano, a hiki i kekahi manawa mahope o, Aole au i manao o ka hewa, e like me ka nui nō. Aka, ua, no na mea a pau aʻu i manao ana, ua i aku la au i ka uhai ana i kekahi rula. Au, aole i noho e loaʻa lawa. Pono hewa hou no ka pono o ka hoʻokō 'ole' ia e loaʻa kupono. He hewa ku ei ke kanaka - na mea pono mea. A ė aʻe ia mea, a me ka hoolaha ia huhu. Ke Akua inaina hewa.

Paha ka mea, aole ia e hoomaona ia oukou nae. Malia o oukou manao i ke Akua, ua overreacting. I ke ano maoli ia, ua huhu no ka mea, he kanaha na makahiki? Kani e like me He Ka paʻa ana i ka hoomauhala. Kaniʻano haʻahaʻa o, ke Akua. No ke aha la i ia no ka hehena? Pono e lawe mai iaʻu e kuhikuhi elua.

II. Ka hewa no An ano 'ē aʻeo Ala

E nānā i ke kumu holoholomoku 10 hou. Akua i haawi mai i ka ho'ākāka 'ana no keia hanauna He ua huhu oia ia. He olelo, "Ua ka mea, he poe kanaka nona ka naau e hele auwana, a lakou i ike ole ai i koʻu mau aoao. "

Ke Akua olelo hele hewa lakou iloko o ko lakou mau naau. Aole lakou e pono e hele auwana externally iloko o ko lakou mau hana. Aka, iloko o ko lakou innermost ia, ma ka 'ōlelo o ka poe a lakou, he, e hele lakou i auwana.

I hiki mai ai e weliweli - I olelo loa weliweli - me na kuhikuhi. No laila, ma paha he pule 'aelike i kaʻu wahine, e hoouna iaʻu kahi e loaa i kekahi mea, a mai hapai ku e kekahi mea aku, a ma aole au e hana ia mea me ke kahea ole ia, aole hoi e ai mai iaʻu elima manawa e like ka loihi. A ua ole no kona mauʻaoʻao, ua ino, ua no ka mea, ua hana hewa 'ana e haʻalele, a hele aku i ka hewa ala, ae loaaʻi ka huli a puni.

Pono keia heʻano o ke kiʻi i Ka pena nei i ka wa ana e olelo mai i ko lakou mau naau e auwana. Ko lakou mau naau hele ilalo i ka hewa ala, ae alakai mai ia lakou i ka hewa wahi. Lakou i huli nalowale. A me ka ia e hiki ke olelo i na hewa. O na hewa hou no ka pono mawaho, ia ka hana no ko kakou mau naau e hele i ka hewa kuhikuhi. A me ko kakou poe hana hahai aku.

A oia no hoi mai nei, "Ua ike ole i koʻu mau aoao." Ke Akua ka ano ua i piha i make i mua o lākou - kona aloha a me kona mana, a pela aku. A Haawi mai la oia ia lakou e kauoha ia e hahai i kona mau aoao, e hahai kona ala. Aka, ma kahi a lakou i makemake ai e hahai i kekahi ala. He Ka i ka mea i ho'ōla aʻe iā lākou mai o Parao, a Wāwahi ke Kaiula! ItʻO unbelievable aole lakou e paulele ia mahope iho o ka ike ana. Lakou i ike kana mau hana, akā,ʻaʻole lākou iʻike i kona mau aoao.

Karistiano, ua ia oukou ka ike i keia mea mea e huli hana i ka wa ia oukou hana hewa? Ia oe, aole wale haule ana i ka lio a hiki pokole ko oukou pihaʻia o? Oe, ua koho ka 'ē aʻe ala i ka mea a ke Akua i kau aku ai no oukou. Oukou huli i ka i ana, "ke Akua, I Fashionʻike koʻoukou mauʻaoʻao, a aole au e like me ia lakou. I Ka ike no oukou makemake i mai iaʻu, e noho, a ke manao nei au, uaʻoi aku koʻu hele ana. Wau akamai ma mua oʻoukou, a me ka Haku maikai mamua o oukou. I hele ana au e koho i koʻu alanui iho. "He mea ino. A o keia no ka mea a makou e hanaʻi kela manawa e hana hewa kakou. Ko kakou hewa, aole ma mua o ka hewa o keia'ōhumu, ke kanalua ole, hewa hanauna mai keia kikokikona.

Eia no ia makou e manao pono o ko kakou hewa, ole makou e inaina mai ia mea e like me kakou e. E hana ka mea ia i ai e ike i ko oukou hewa pono. It Kaʻinoʻino. Mai ho'āʻo e hana ia mea nani. hiki makou makemake e hiki hoʻololi i ke alanui kakou kamailio a puni ia mea. Kakou e aole wale no manao o ko kakou hewa, e like me "Oh, I nalowale i ke kaua. ai ole ia, e, Ke 'īnea nei me keia. "No makou koho i ka hoʻoloheʻole i ke Akua. Ua koho mākou e hana i kekahi mea'ē aʻe ma mua o ka mea a ke Akua i kauoha mai ai ia kakou e hana, no ka mea, aole kakou i like me ka mea ia i ka olelo. Ka mea, oia kaʻinoʻino aku o ka lanakila o ka hewa. A e like me ka manaoio i makemake ai e hana ke Akua i ka makemake, makou, ua kaua aku e malama i ke kuanaʻike'ākau ma luna o ko mākou hewa.

Ralph Venning E kōkua i kā mākou ma lalo o ku ia mea i loko o Sinfulness o Sina i kona wahi, "O ka pokole, hewa, ua ka aa o ke Akua ke hoopai, ke kūlanakauhale o kona aloha, ka jeer o kona ahonui, ka slight o kona mana, ka hoʻowahāwahāʻana o kona aloha. e makou e hele aku ae olelo aku, ka mea, oia ka upbraiding o kona malama ana, ka henehene iho o kona hoopomaikai, i ka hoino ana o kona naauao. "

Ke aoʻana i ka haku mele i hāʻawi mai nei i hoʻomaka me na olelo, "E hoopaakiki i ko oukou naau." Basically mai lilo increasingly paʻakikīʻano, ae hoomalau mai la lakou i ke Akua i ke kauoha a. A pili i ke aoʻana iā makou e like me ka pono. O keia no ke aha la ke kumu o ka Hebera kaʻohiʻana i i keia pauku, a ao ka poe Hebera i ka haule ana aku.

Ke Akua i kauoha i ka wa ia oe stubbornly ai ia e hoole, ia oukou naau loaʻa ka paʻakikī a me ka paʻakikī i luna o ka manawa. Maoli paakiki naau peleʻia ana ma luna o nā kapuwaʻiʻehā loihi o ka manawa, aole overnight. Makou manao kakou u loa e ke ano o ka mea i welau i ka unrepentant hewa, aka, makou hiki. Maoli paakiki naau hiki mai ma luna o ka manawa i ka wa a makou i wae ai e ka hoʻoloheʻole i ke Akua, ma o na mea uuku maluna iho, a ma luna, a ma luna o hou. A ola Look maʻaneʻi, he uuku wahahee malaila, a ma luna o ka manawa mākou lilo desensitized i ka hewa, ae hoomaka ana e hoapono ia ia. A ma mua o ko oukou ike ia, makou huli wale hookohukohu iho la lakou, hiki e luhi o hookohukohu iho la makou, a hahai ia Iesu hooki make. Ka poe uuku kaua, ua lilo nui.

No laila, ina oe maanei i keia la a me ka hele 'ana o kekahi hewa e noho ma ko oukou ola, mihi! Ano,! Haʻi ko oukou hewa i ka kekahi poe. Mai hoomaka i keia pōʻaiapuniʻana o koʻoukou naʻau e hoopaakiki. Ma kahi o ko oukou mau aoao e paulele ana, ike kona. E hahai mai kona mau aoao. Hilinaʻi la o Iesu, a manaoio i kana olelo. He aloha ia oukou, a ua haawi mai ia oukou e kauoha no ka mea, o ko oukou pono. E hahai mai kona ala.

OK, pela ke Akua ka inaina, ua hoʻonāukiuki aku ma ka hana hewa, a me ka hewa, ua koho ka 'ē aʻe ala. No laila, i ka mea? ʻO Wai ka no o koho i kēia 'ē aʻe ala?

III. Ka hewa malama mai ke Akua i ka maha, mai

Listen e Ke Kumu Holoholomoku 11.

Pela au i hai aku i hoohiki i loko o koʻu huhu, "E loa komo i koʻu wahi maha."

Ka hopena, ua i loko o ke Akua ka inaina, Oia e hoopai aku ia lakou. Ma keia mau hana ', Ke Akua kala nei i ka lakou, aka, oia, aole i ae aku ia lakou e ka poe i olelo mua iaʻi hana komo. Aka, ma ka manawa a ka haku mele kākau i keia, Ke Akua i ka poʻe kānaka i mua komo. A no keia mea hoʻohana i kēia kikokikona no ka olelo hooholo no ke Akua i ka maha mau loa. A me keia mea i ka mea kākau moʻolelo o ka poe Hebera ia mea ia mea hoi. Ke Akua i ka maha mau loa ai iā kākou ke komo, aka, ko makou hewa ke malama kakou i ka mea.

Kakou e ike nei i, aole wale no, aole ke Akua e huhu, aka, ka mea, ua hoʻoholo i loko o kona inaina. nae, ma keia e hooholo ia ka mea, ua ka hoohiki ma kona huhu. He hana pololei aku kekahi o ka poe mua kaha puana'ī mai nei, aole e hana. Aka, kona inaina, aole fickle e like me kākou. Keia mea, aole e olelo aku i na kanaka huhu, ua hewa. Aka, kona loa, ua. Huhu, aole ia e ka ona pinepine ia, ae hoʻoneʻe aku ia ia e hana lapuwale hoʻoholo. ma kahi, Kona huhū no kaʻilikai alai ae, hemolele, a oia keia manawa pane ai me ka lokomaikai, a me ka hoopai.

Ke Akua ka mau loa maha no ka nani, maluhia, ole-stressful, Ke Akua ka hoonani aku i kahi mea e pau ai a pau o kona poe kanaka oiaio iloko o. Ke Akua ka inaina o ka poe hoano, pono, weliweli, weliweli hopena no ka poe i loaa i ka mea a lakou i pono [reword]. ʻAʻole Ia iʻike maha ma Hell. ʻAʻole Ia iʻike ke ola i loko o Hell, wale hoomanawanui, a me ka inaina. A makou huli ole kamailio ana no ka inaina o ka poe koa, a he kanaka, aka, o ka inaina o ke Akua mana maluna o ko oukou mau poo, no ka mau loa aku. Ke Akua ka inaina aole wale nei ma ke Kauoha Kahiko. He manawa keia inaina hewa. Makou e makau i keia Akua kupaianaha. Ko lakou hewa malama ia lakou ke Akua ke hoomaha mai, a makou hiki hoi.

Keia mea no ka mea, kela mea keia mea maʻaneʻi i kēia ahiahi. Ma hope oʻoukou e make, oe e ma ke Akua ka maha komo a hoomau a ke Akua ka inaina. O ka poe i wale no elua nā koho. A pau o kakou pono i ka lua o koho. No ka mea a pau a makou, ua like ia me ka hewa o ka hanauna ia i mea kamaʻilio e pili ana. Makou e hele kakou iho ala. Makou e hele hewa iloko o ko kakou mau naau, a, aole makou i hahai ma muli o kona mau aoao. Makou hana i ka mea e angers ke Akua ma luna, a ma luna, a ma luna o hou.

Pela hoi he manaolana no kekahi o ko kakou? Aia.

In 1 no Tesalonike 1:10, Paul hōʻike ana i ke kanaka no Galilaia, me keia mau olelo, "I kana Keiki, mai ka lani, ana i hoala ae mai ka make mai, Mai la o Iesu ka mea e hoʻopakele iā mākou mai ka inaina e kau mai ana. "

A hope ma 5:9-10 la ia i ka poe manaoio, "No ka mea, mai ke Akua i ole destined ia kakou no ka inaina, aka, e loaa ke ola, ma ko kakou Haku o Iesu Kristo, ka poe i make no ka mea, ia makou i ka ina paha makou, ua ala ae la, a hiamoe kakou e ola pu me ia. "

Ko kakou wale no ka manaʻolana o Iesu. A He aloha nui o makou.

"Ma keia mea ke aloha, ole ia kakou i aloha i ke Akua, aka, ia ia i aloha mai ia kakou, a hoouna aku i kana Keiki e lilo i ke kalahala no ko kakou hewa. " 1 John 4:10

Laila he kiaha, ua piha i ka ukiuki huhu a me ka inaina i ua makaukau oia e ninini mai maluna o makou i ke Akua. Aka, no ka mea, o ka poe o kakou iloko o Kristo, aole kakou i loaa i ka inaina e hoomanawanui. ma kahi, Ke Akua i lawe i ke kiaha mai ma luna o ko kākou mau poʻo, a oia Ka neʻe ia. No ka mea, o ka poe o kakou iloko o Kristo, Oia i ka inaina a makou i hūnāʻia, ninini iho la ia na mea a pau i loko o ke kiaha hookahi, kau ia mea ma luna o ke poʻo o kana Keiki, a oia ninini na mea a pau i waho ma luna o ia. He aha nui ke aloha! Mai la o Iesu hoomanawanui i ka weliweli ka inaina o ke Akua, no ka mea, ma luna o ke keʻa. He make ma ka mea keʻa, aka, He Ku mai kona lua i na la ekolu ma hope mai e like me ko kakou lanakila Moi. Mai la o Iesu, i mai la, "E hele mai i oʻu nei, a pau i hana, a me ka poe kaumaha, a naʻu no e haawi aku ia oe e hoomaha aku. " (Matthew 11:28)

Ka euanelio, oia i ka poe i ko lakou manaoio iloko o keia ia Iesu- Ke Akua, aole huhu i koe no kakou. In o Kristo, Ke Akua ka mea, aole huhu ia kakou. He Ka kaumaha ma mākou hana hewa anei kakou i ka wa, aka, aole makou e, aole e hoopaiia no lakou. ¶ Pomaikai wale ke kanaka nona ka hewa, aole i heluia e ku e ia ia.

A ina kakou mau e hilinai ma o Kristo, i ka wa He hoʻi ia kakou ke loaa ia ia me ka olioli ma ka hakahaka o ka weliweli. A ia kakou ke mele, "Pela hoi, pono i kuu uhane."

  1. Evanpane

    Mahalo, huakai. I wanted to get your take on something because you have been someone who has played a big role in my walk with Christ. This will be long, so if you don’t get around to it, I understand.

    When I became a Christian a few years back, things were simple- trust Jesus completely, God forives you for everything (past, present, future), just trust in him and he will take care of the rest. Not to make feelings the basis of faith, but back in those days there was a constant joy and obedience came naturally from thinking I was forgiven unconditionally. Just a kid who trusted in his dad and didn’t worry about needing to be perfect. The focus was all on thankfulness for Christ. I didn’t need to worry about sin because the way I viewed it- my job was to trust Jesus, the Holy Spirit took care of the rest.

    As I spent more and more time in the word, there were scriptures that would come up that shook that trust/grace foundation that I described earlier and took me back to my childhood. My father especially (who was young in the faith at the time, so I don’t hold it against him) was very quick to stress God’s justice without balancing it with teaching about his mercy. ʻo kahi laʻana, he taught me at a very young age that I must repent of all my sins in order to be saved, that many Christians will be in for a rude awakening on Judgment Day because they think that Jesus will welcome them when they still break God’s law, a pela aku. He was huge on speaking in tounges, many other things but didn’t hit much on the trusting God part.

    As more and more doubts crept in and I became deeply interested in theology, somewhere along the line I set a pattern of trying to take things into my own power and figure everything out intellectually instead of drawing close and waiting on God. I can’t tell you how many hours I’ve spent researching theological stuff, unanswered questions, looking up scriptures in Greek, a pela aku. on the internet this last year. My thought process has beenWell if Jesus has all of these conditions, then I need to make sure that I meet the conditions.Thus, my walk became intellectual and perfectionistic. What was once so simple became utterly complicated, my trust was crippled, and thus I’m still in a pretty burdened time in my walk with Christ right now.

    I notice two opposing unbalanced camps within Christianity and I’m sure you may agree- 1) anobediencecamp and 2) Mai la o Iesu ia ia mea a pau” camp. The obedience camp is quick to stress our responsibility and usually references the synoptic Gospels, revelation, the OT, a pela aku. The Jesus paid it all camp stresses trusting him alone and seems to rely very heavily on Paul. When I first started walking with Christ, I definitely had the mindset of Camp 2, but the more I studied the Scriptures and (inoino, the opinions of men on the internet) I became very startled about doubting my understanding of the grace that changed my life. Camp 1 is great about stressing God’s righteousness and unchanging nature but seems to try to manufacture obedience from fleshly willpower. They will reference stuff like the “ka Haku, ka Haku… I never knew youscripture. Camp 2 is great about stressing God’s forgiveness and the sunshine and rainbows stuff, but portrays God as if he is two completely different people from the OT to NT. They’ll reference that nothing can separate us from God’s love and that type of stuff. God’s truth has to be somewhere in the balanced middle, akau? My goal is just to know God for who He says He is and have a biblical balanced understanding of all of his attributes. I’m having the hardest time getting back to just trusting him and being in relationship with him because I’m constantly worried aboutnot being able to figure everything out” (I’m relying on my own understanding terribly). The only thing that I take comfort in right now is this- Getting back to walking and talking with God and trusting that He will take this thing wherever he needs to take it if I would just trust him to do it. If he has all of these conditions, then my job is to trust that his grace will help me meet them.

    nui Love, huakai.

      Hi Evan,
      I saw your angst, and you’re right. There are basically two camps when you look at the big picture. There is balance though, and I know you can receive it. I say receive rather than find because the Lord tells us, “knock and the door shall be opened”. Studying the Word is good, don’t stop. aka,, are you also in prayer? I’m not talking about praying with a feeling of obligation or a laundry list of requests. aka,, praying truly from your heart. It’s something to practice, I’ve been learning how to do it better myself lately. Ka mua, praise God for who He is. Then ask for forgiveness, specific forgiveness. After that approach the throne with your concerns, worries and burdens. Wrap it up with more praise. There are some great apps out there that can help with this (Examen and Examine). Both are prayer apps that a friend of mine highly suggests. I haven’t decided which one to do yet. I would also suggest reading the book, Fervent, by Priscilla Shirer. I am reading it right now. It’s about prayer and spiritual warfare and it’s been so great! Really eye opening. I am thinking more and more that in Western society we are spiritually asleep. We have a casual approach to prayer and spiritual warfare is a fairy talebut it is all very real. You will find peace in prayertalk with God about your questions. It’s okay to ask questions. I hope you’re able to see this and I hope it helps you Evan!
      Your Sister in Christ,
      Liz

    There are a lot variances from indoor volleyball together with outdoor beach ball. The hardest thing to receive useful to is actually you move foward the actual crushed lime stone. A backyard tactic is generally merely 3 step technique where you start straight up rather than go forward as you soar.
