Florin Ianovici – interviu la Speranta TV (NOU)

Programul este din 2011 si a fost difuzat la Speranta TV cu Cornel Darvasan.

Partea 1

Este posibil sa cunoastem voia lui Dumnezeu? Este o chestiune obiectiva sau este o chestiune subiectiva?

Florin Ianovici: Oamenii intreaba. Daca ar fi sa fim sinceri, raspunsurile la intrebarile acestea  de cele mai multe ori vin in tacare. Iar noi incercam sa provocam cunoasterea voii lui Dumnezeu. Noi venim la Dumnezeu si ii cerem daca e voia Lui la lucrurile noastre. Corect ar fi daca ne-ar interesa voia cuiva, sa il intrebi mai intii, „Care este voia ta?”

Majoritatea intrebarilor cu care noi venim inaintea lui Dumnezeu sunt de ordin practic. Sint intrebari care au de a face cu felul nostru de a trai mai bine pe pamintul acesta. Intrebarile cele mai des intilnite in aceasta arie a voii lui Dumnezeu sint astfel: Sa ma duc la slujba aceasta, sa ma duc la facultatea aceasta, sa ma casatoresc sau nu cu persoana aceasta. Daca suntem onesti am spune ca de cele mai multe ori la aceste intrebari „practice” Dumnezeu tace.

Raspunsul la intrebarea „Care este voia lui Dumnezeu „(pentru orice situatie) este la 1 Tesaloniceni 4:3 unde spune ca voia lui Dumnezeu este sfintirea. Asta ma relaxeaza, ma linisteste, ma face sa ma simt extrem de crezator in Dumnezeu, pentru ca atit cit priveste lucrul care si-L doreste El cu privire la viata mea, acesta nu este sub semnul intrebarii. Dumnezeu doreste, indiferent de unde ar veni credinta noastra si indiferent cum ne-am numi noi, aceasta dorinta a lui Dumnezeu este pentru toti: Sfintirea vietii noastre in mijlocul unei lumi care in fiecare zi isi pierde busola spirituala.

Partea 2

Problema noastra este ca noi confundam alegerile noastre cu voia lui Dumnezeu. Care sunt citeva criterii pentru a alege bine?

Florin Ianovici: Facind distinctia intre faptul ca voia lui Dumnezeu este intotdeauna duhovniceasca, si asta ma ajuta pe mine, omul de rind, sa nu ma sperii cind sint in fata unei alegeri si sa inteleg ca de fapt alegerea este ceia ce ne preocupa pe noi, si de fapt formularea „o fi” sau „n-0 fi” voia lui Dumnezeu este pur si simplu modul prin care ne-am invatat sa ne exprimam si de multe ori ne aduce confuzie. Deci, alegerea are la baza o intrebare: Daca imi este sau nu de folos. Sunt patru puncte de sprijin:

  1. Relatia cu Cuvintul lui Dumnezeu. Avem tendinta uneori „usoara” de a deschide Biblia fie pentru a cauta versete specifice problemei mele, ca celelalte nu ma intereseaza; sau, mai rau de atit, fie sa deschidem Biblia la intimplare cautind o vointa sfinta si deschizind cu degetul, avind in minte o cifra, cautind astfel sa ma incredintez eu ca aceasta este voia lui Dumnezeu. Cuvintul lui Dumnezeu trebuie strins in fiecare zi; el nu trebuie cautat in heirup-ismurile noastre. Sa facem o relatie cu cuvintul lui Dumnezeu care va locui in noi pentru ca cuvintul lui Dumnezeu ne va da echilibrul necesar si intelepciunea dincolo de care vom sti sa alegem. Aproape pe nesimtite ne va purta cuvintul catre usa pe care trebuie sa intram.
  2. Relatia de partasie cu oamenii care te iubesc. Zic oamenii care au o afinitate pentru tine pentru ca daca nu au ei iti dau sfaturi gindindu-se la ei, nu la tine. Omul este subiectiv in tot ceia ce face. Nu exista obiectivitate, numai am inventat lucrul asta ca sa ii facem pe oameni ca sa ne accepte ideile. 
  3. Relatia in rugaciune care imi linisteste inima.
  4. Meditarea, cugetarea, analiza. Stau si meditez si analizez. De ce? Am remarcat ca graba strica treaba.

Ravi Zacharias Leuven Q&A

Why can’t we all agree ? A wise and ‘different’ answer

Photo – HollyMonroe.com

An excellent article, Why doesn’t everyone agree with me?  from the Parchment & Pen Blog by C. Michael Patton:

Why doesn’t everyone agree with me? Who is causing this disunity in the body of Christ, them or me? Do these divisions demonstrate the doctrinal bankruptcy of sola Scriptura? Should we elect a Pope of Protestantism? Or could it be that God has a purpose in his allowance of disagreements?

Michael gives 7 answers we might give to this questions such as – They don’t agree with me because „they have not studied long enough” or maybe „they have sin in their life that is blinding them”.

But he concludes that we should probably look at 2 other options before all the others and those are:

  1. Others don’t agree with me because they are right and I am wrong. But the possibility always exists that I am the one who is in error, misinformed, motivated by false pre-understandings, tradition-bound, or lacking perspective. I must consider this with great humility…
  2. Others don’t agree with me because God does not want us to agree, regardless of who is right.

and here is where I find so much wisdom in his reasons for point # 2:

A) I believe that it is a real possibility—even likelihood—that God does not want absolute doctrinal unity right now. In fact, practically speaking, it could do more harm than good. I believe doctrinal disagreements are often healthy for the church. When there is conflict between opposing viewpoints, the issue at hand is understood at a more profound level than is possible in the absence of conflict. Conflict, in the end, can bring about a deeper conviction of the truth. When there is no conflict, there is no iron sharpening iron in the same way.

B) What I am saying is this: it may actually be God’s sovereignty that brings about division over the doctrine of God’s sovereignty! This does not mean that wrong belief is always justified. Wrong belief is often (though not always) the result of sin. Neither does it mean that we need to be content with agnosticism or lessen our conviction about any doctrinal issue. To the contrary. It means that we engage in it more vigorously than we did before, being confident that God has a dignified reason for conflict resulting from diversity. In the end, we will find that through the conflict our beliefs become stronger, not weaker. I believe we must open ourselves up to the possibility of being wrong in order to find truer faith and conviction.

Kirk Cameron talks about the Monumental Movie – Forefathers Monument

Kirk Cameron grew up as an atheist for the first 20 years of his life. Today, at the age of 40 he is introducing a new documentary that aims to teach our children the heritage of this country by „taking a lesson from history and planting seeds today, as parents, as Americans and we teach our children and we tell the stories and we remember our history and we can then trust God that 10 years from now, 20 years from now, 30 years from now we will see the fruit of our labors and then there’s hope that God will restore our country. It is an investment into a pure, proper society for the future instead of  bedlam”.

Kirk: I learned so much from our founding fathers. But, the more I look around and I open my eyes, I feel deeply concerned for where America is heading if it stays on it’s current course.. I am not a politician but I am a father who cares about the future of my kids and I think there’s something very sick in the soul of America, in general: Financially, we’re hearing about collapse all over the place. Morally, families ae falling apart. Spiritually, it’s scary what I see happening.

Kirk recounts how a Policeman friend and a Navy Seal were arrested in Hollywood for talking to people on the streets with an open Bible.Kirk: Are you kidding me? I mean I would imagine this in China or some other country, but in America? I’m trying to figure out what’s wrong with this country and I don’t have some delusions of grandeur  that I can fix the nation, but I want to be part of the solution.

I wonder if we have just forgotten the principles that made us a great nation in the first place? Could we go back and talk to our founding fathers and just listen to them? Is there a way to go back and learn from them the essentials that built this nation? And, could it be that our founders were wiser men responsible enough to know we would get off track, because they’ve seen where they came from and that it is in the hearts of men to be selfish and oppressive, and to grab power and to abuse others. So, could it be that they would know that we would get off track and leave us clues to get back to the treasure that would save us?

As I began to learn about our country’s history I thought: This isn’t the history I learned about the Pilgrims. I thought that Christianity belonged in the church and in my home, but not in the public square. It’s not meant to be principles for nation building. As Kirk went on a journey learning the history of the founding fathers, he decided to do a documentary movie and dig deeper. Kirk traveled to England and saw the prisons that the Separatists were thrown in for their religious beliefs and through his research came to understand that the treasure they brought over to the United States was not in chests made of wood, but in chests of men and women. It was the ideas in their hearts and in their minds. It was the truth of God and His word, their love for Jesus Christ and the belief that if they took God’s word and used it as a blueprint, they could built a nation where men and women and children would be free, free to love God and free to reach the world for Christ. All of these principles were encapsulated and immortalized in one monument that is sitting on top of a hill in Plymouth, Massachusetts; hidden in a residential area behind a forest of trees. Most people have never seen it, let alone heard of it. It is called Monument to the forefathers. It lays out the forefathers strategy for our nation. It is so clearly biblical in its presentation. The monument is 81 feet tall and her name is faith. Her finger is pointing towards heaven
