2012 05 10 When Love Responds
« on: May 30, 2012, 04:20:22 PM »

What do we lack when we do not lead our friends to Christ?

How can we help Obama becoming a more fruitful disciple?

Or are we then reaching too far?

Why are so few people attending our outreach programs?

Or should we be reaching out to our friends?

Discernment on which environment we want to bring them into.

How can we help Obama becoming a more fruitful disciple?

Voting him out so he can become humble.

Or are we then reaching too far?

No

Why are so few people attending our outreach programs?

Do you really want to bring them in to a divided church that teaches truth but works against truth in actions. Some are in this category and some not.  SP says in last days it is better to with hold then to bring new people in as it would be better if they did not know truth and then fall from wrong witnessing within our church.

Or should we be reaching out to our friends?

It's what ever circumstance we bring them into. I know a church that would totally confuse anyone to their loss of salvation.  It's now probably better on a one to one basis that truth seeking individuals will keep on the search for the true will of God and work as individuals or that can stay strong within weak environment.

When I double checked the date for this lesson I discovered that 2012 06 10 is on a Sunday, and this was the date given in my copy of the lesson for Sabbath, June 9!

A printing mistake? How do such mistakes take place?

A mistake finding its way among God's People is mentioned in the Wednesday section of this lesson. How can such a mistake be corrected?

Can you give us an example?

No
Are there other "targets" who are more important to you?

How do you determine the standards?

So we just leave our best friends alone to be lost?[/quote]

It's Time to Reach-Out

Quote
Do you want to reach out and touch your community with Christ’s love and compassion? Here’s a event you can’t miss. North American Division unions and conferences are hosting Reach-Out symposiums sponsored by Adventist Community Services. Participants will gain skills in community development, urban ministry, disaster response, tutoring and mentoring, elder care, and more. Reach beyond your comfort zone and register for the next symposium. Visit www.communityservices.org.

Is this an aid to fulfill what this lesson deals with?
