Sexul e cea mai mare problema cu care se confrunta tinerii – Zac Poonen la Biserica Penticostala Kenmore (Seattle)

Vorbind despre Iosif din Vechiul Testament, Zac Poonen intreaba:

Ce pasiuni au tinerii la 17 ani? Eu stiu, pentru ca si eu am avut 17 ani. Nu trebuie sa fiu proroc ca sa stiu care e problema tinerilor. E vorba despre sex. Fiecare tanar se confrunta cu aceasta problema.

De ce vorbesc asa deschis despre asta? Obisnuiam sa merg la o biserica buna, unde se predica Scriptura. Dar acolo nu s-a vorbit niciodata de problema mea cea mai mare: despre sex.  Nu mi-au spus niciodata cum sa-mi controlez gandurile. M-au invatat despre Cortul Intalnirii, despre semnificatia componentelor lui… Problema mea n-avea legatura cu cortul. Problema mea se lega de sex si nimeni nu vorbea despre asta.

Ce s-a intamplat dupa aceea? Stateam in banca si ei vorbeau despre aceste lucruri spirituale inalte doctrina si studii biblice… Nimeni n-a vorbit niciodata despre problema mea cea mai mare.E ca si cum ai merge la un spital pentru ca ai cancer si ei iti coase camasa pentru ca e putin rupta si tu spui: Problema mea e ca am cancer, nu maruntisurile astea!

Repentance/Pocainta…exista o intelegere gresita a acestui lucru: Pocainta nu inseamna ca am ajuns la desavarsire. Inseamna ca mergeam in directia gresita, dar m-am intors. Linia de sosire poate fi 1000 km distanta de mine. N-am ajuns acolo. Tot ce zic e ca m-am intors. Nu spun ca am dobandit victoria. Nu, dar mi-am schimbat atitudinea fata de pacat. Stiti, ne-am permis multa vreme anumite obiceiuri. Si avem nevoie de multa vreme ca sa scapam de unele obiceiuri. Cu cat e mai adanca groapa pe care ai sapat-o in anii de pacat, cu atat dureaza mai mult sa fii eliberat de pacate.

Dorintele sexuale sunt normale. Ele raman in noi si dupa ce ne nastem din nou. E o presiune enorma si la barbati si la femei. Trebuie sa luptati cu ele si Dumnezeu va va da putere. Si daca veti continua sa luptati va veni ziua cand veti birui. Sexul va fi sub piciorul vostru, asa cum Goliat a ajuns sub piciorul lui David. Israelitii tremuaru in fata lui Goliat, „Cum vom putea sa-l invingem?” Si el striga, „Cine ma poate infrange?” Toata lumea tremura. Asa-i, sexul e un urias care se ridica chiar si in biserici si zice, „Cine ma poate infrange?” Pana si oamenii de 50 de ani tremura: Nu putem sa-l biruim, mai bine sa-l lasam in pace.” Unde e tanarul de 17 ani, acel David care sa se ridice in fata uriasului si sa spuna, „Vin inaintea ta in numele lui Isus! Am sa te dobor sub piciorul meu si am sa-ti tai capul.” De ce sunt aceste istorii scrise in Biblie? Ele ne arata ca tinerii pot lupta cand adultii, ca si Saul tremura. Iar tinerii pot avea victorie! Dragi tineri: Luptati!

…societatea noastra este saturata cu acest lucru. Nu putem evita, e pretutindeni. Imagini care se succed in mintea noastra de catre printul lumii acesteia. Ii polueaza pe oamenii lui Dumnezeu, ii murdaresc pe predicatori, ii distrug. Cand auziti de un predicator care comite adulter, aceasta nu s-a intamplat peste noapte. S-a intamplat pentru ca a fost infidel timp de 25 de ani in gandurile lui. Se uita la filme pornografice si pacatuia in ascuns. Iar intr-o zi a fost prins. Dupa care spune, „Si David a pacatuit.” Ce inseamna ca si David a pacatuit? Esti Imparat din Vechiul Legamant? Sau predicator din Noul Legamant? Sa le fie rusine acestor oameni! Cauta o justificare in David. Credeti ca Dumnezeu v-a dat Biblia ca sa va justificati pacatul? Sau ca sa va invete sa fiti sfinti? Nu ca oamenii sa caute un verset: „Uite un om pe care l-a folosit Dumnezeu dupa ce a comis adulter…  Gata l-am gasit!” Pentru asta v-a dat Dumnezeu Biblia? Sunt uimit de cati de multi predicatori  care au cazut in pacat vor sa se intoarca in lucrare si il amintesc pe David. A cazut Pavel in preacurive? A comis Petru adulter? Sau Ioan, Iacov, vreunul dintre ei? De ce nu va luati dupa ei? Si eu au fost tineri. Si ei au luptat aceasta batalie. Credeti ca Petru n-a simtit presiune sexuala? Daca a fost o fiinta umana normala, iar eu cred acest lucru, era un om casatorit. A trebuit sa lupte.

Teama de Dumnezeu. Geneza 39 e un capitol grozav pentru tineri. Am zis ca sexul e cea mai mare problema cu care se confrunta tinerii. Priviti-l pe Iosif, care nu a fost la nici o intrunire de tineret, care n-a avut nici o Biblie si n-a fost umplut cu Duhul Sfant. Nu stia nimic despre iertarea pacatelor. Nici macar nu traia cu parintii lui. Era o tinta sigura pentru Satana. Iar o femeie atragatoare incearca sa-l ispiteasca. Daca era cineva mai predispus sa cada, el era acela. Dar uitati-va cum ramane in picioare! Femeia a incercat de multe ori… Iosif n-a voit, si nu a zis: O, nimeni nu ma vede. Nu-l intereseaza ca nimeni nu e de fata ca zice: Dumnezeu se uita la mine! Cum as putea sa fac un rau atat de mare si sa pacatuiesc impotriva lui Dumnezeu? Ar trebui sa invatati cuvintele lui Iosif pe de rost.

Cand stati in fata computerului si nu e nimeni in preajma si sunteti ispititi sa accesati acea pagina unde va puteti satisface pofta si va infestati mintea cu imagini care vor ramane acolo pentru urmatorii 50 de ani. Si care vor reveni in visele voastre chiar si dupa ce va veti pocai de ele. Si dupa ce sunteti umpluti de Duhul Sfant. Aceste vise va vor bantui noaptea. O sa va zbateti necontenit inca vreo 25 de ani dupa ce a-ti renuntat la pornografia de pe internet. Vei zice, „Ce n-as da sa nu ma fi uitat. Iar imi polueaza visele. Am renuntat la pornografie acum 25 de ani si ma tortureaza si azi.” Cu asta o sa va confruntati. Luptati-va!

Ravi Zacharias – Is America abandoning God?

Ravi Zacharias:

  • Somewhere in the 80’s I began to get a sense that the more religion became commercialized, the more we would flirt with making it a target that would be attacked because we marketed it, rather than proclaiming it. And, any time it invades in the political arena, the commercial arena, there will always be those who question the integrity of it’s message.
  • I think the world has changed since 9/11… sometimes they lump all the religions together and they say, „These guys are bent on destroying civilization as we know it.” They never give a fair test to atheism, at the same time.
  • The church has become distant from the locations of discussion and has become distorted in pursuing power and structure.

Ravi Zacharias and Bob Ditmer talk about a recent USA TODAY article that reports more Americans are declaring no religious affiliation according to the 2008 American Religious Identification Survey. Published on Jun 11, 2012 by 

John Frame – Evangelical Reunion (free online book)

In this 145 page book, available in pdf form here – http://www.frame-poythress.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/FrameJohnEvangelicalReunion1991.pdf

John M. Frame traces the history of denominationalism way back to Jeroboam of the Old Testament, recounts it throughout the last 2 millenia and then speaks about the road back to unity:

even if complete unity is delayed until the return of Christ, we ought to be able to see the beginnings of that unity in the church today.

and how it might apply to our times:

We can be thankful then, that God’s sovereign power stands behind the movement toward church unity, weak as it may appear from a human viewpoint. God will surely bring it to pass, in his time. What of our time? God’s eternal intentions are secret to us. I do not know how much unity God intends to give to the church in this age, any more than I know what degree of moral maturity God intends to bestow upon the church in the next ten years. Yet in both cases, I believe God blesses efforts to achieve, when those efforts are rooted in his grace. He honors those who seek his goals, even when, for his mysterious reasons, he withholds from them success in their own time (cf. Deut. 29:29). Protestants honor Wycliffe and Huss, though their movements were unsuccessful by human standards. Thus, I believe that God honors those who work for church unity, even when their efforts bear no apparent fruit. As I argued earlier, God’s sovereignty is not opposed to human responsibility. Rather, the former undergirds the latter. We are encouraged to seek God’s kingdom, because we know that God himself is bringing his kingdom to the earth. We also know that God’s sovereign plan regularly makes use of human agents to accomplish the divine goals. So it is evident that God wishes us to do what we can to rid the church of its divisions. In the coming chapters I shall be making suggestions as to what human beings can do. But let us never
forget that the work is „not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit” (Zech. 4:6).

so if you are a ‘scholar’ of church history, or if you enjoy reading about it, the first part of the book looks very intriguing- considering that for myself, this is the first book (and free at that) I have come across (as a layperson) that deals with the history of denominationalism, going back as far as the Old Testament. Whether you agree with the later premise of an attempt for church unity or not,(some will see this or any attempt at church unity before the coming of Christ as ecumenism) you will still find this book a worthwhile read.

An interesting thing to note is that Frame also left his PCUSA denominationin 1958 because of its liberal leaning:

…back to 1958, when I was just starting college. In that year, the
denomination of my childhood, the United Presbyterian Church of North America,
merged with the Presbyterian Church, U. S. A. The UPNA had been relatively
conservative in theology, the PCUSA strongly liberal, though with
some conservative congregations. Just about that time, the conviction began to
dawn on me that „liberalism” was not the Christian Gospel at all. I came to the conclusion that I could not remain in the PCUSA, especially since my PCUSA
presbytery at that time was demanding that its ministerial candidates receive
training (which I interpreted „brainwashing”) at liberal seminaries. I joined
an independent church at that point. But many of my closest friends and
respected teachers (notably John H. Gerstner) made other choices, forcing me to
rethink and rethink. So my earliest years of theological self-consciousness were
focused upon denominational and church questions: what is a true church? What
obligations are involved in church membership? In what sort of church would
God want me to minister?

This book was published in 1990, after the collapse of communism, having been born in one of those communist regimes that fell- Romania- and having seen the hand of God wake up the masses, I can see John Frame’s hope in the faith that church unity (in some small form) is not unachievable by the sovereign hand of the God who brought down communism. However, here we are 22 some years later when the world is a very differet place and christians are lamenting the downward slide away not only from christianity, but from any moral responsibility.
