Does God Have a Perfect Will for Your Life? Does God have a perfect will for each Christian? Can you be absolutely certain of God’s specific will for your life? In this expanded twenty-fifth anniversary edition of his highly acclaimed work, Garry Friesen examines the prevalent view on God’s will today and provides a sound biblical alternative to the traditional teaching of how God guides us. This new edition includes these helpful resources: • Study guide for small groups • Responses to Frequently Asked Questions • Guide to painless Scripture memorization Friesen tackles the very practical issues of choosing a mate, picking a career, and giving in this fresh and liberating approach to decision making and the will of God. Story Behind the Book Most Christians have been taught how to find God’s will, yet many are still unsure whether they’ve found it. God does guide His people, but the question is, “How does He guide?” After “putting out a fleece” to decide which college to attend, Garry Friesen began pondering why it was so hard to find God’s will when he had so sincerely sought it. Was he the only one who did not have 100 percent clarity for every decision? Then a new possibility struck—perhaps his understanding of the nature of God’s will was biblically deficient. Maybe there was a better way to understand HOW God guides. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Vom unfreien Willen An Erasmus von Rotterdam Vollst ndige Ausgabe

Dieses eBook: "Vom unfreien Willen (An Erasmus von Rotterdam) - Vollständige Ausgabe" ist mit einem detaillierten und dynamischen Inhaltsverzeichnis versehen und wurde sorgfältig korrekturgelesen. Erasmus und Luther haben sich nie persönlich kennengelernt, korrespondierten jedoch mehr oder weniger öffentlich ab 1519 miteinander. Während Luther eine „harte Linie“ gegen das aus seiner Sicht dekadente Papsttum der römisch-katholischen Kirche vertrat, setzte sich Erasmus für „innere Reformen“ ein und bat Luther um Mäßigung. Auch in religiösen Fragen zeigten sich bald Unterschiede. Während Erasmus die These aufstellte, Gott habe dem Menschen einen freien Willen gegeben, zwischen dem Guten und dem Bösen zu wählen, der freilich nur mit Gottes Gnade wirksam werden könne, argumentierte Luther mit der Erbsünde und der Allmacht Gottes, durch die jede Tat des Menschen vorausbestimmt sei. Luther verglich den menschlichen Willen mit einem Pferd, „das der Teufel reitet“ oder das Gott lenkt. Es sei unmöglich, einen der beiden Reiter loszuwerden, denn jedes menschliche Schicksal sei vorbestimmt und endet entweder in der Hölle oder im Himmel. Gottes Liebe und Hass seien ewig und unverrückbar, schrieb Luther in seiner Erwiderung an Erasmus, sie seien schon gewesen, „ehe der Welt Grund gelegt ward“, noch ehe es einen Willen oder Werke des Willens gab. Martin Luther (1483-1546) war der theologische Urheber der Reformation. Erasmus von Rotterdam (1466-1536) war ein bedeutender europäischer Gelehrter des Humanismus. Er war Theologe, Philosoph, Philologe und Autor zahlreicher Bücher.

"Billige Gnade ist der Todfeind unserer Kirche. Unser Kampf heute geht um die teure Gnade." Für Dietrich Bonhoeffer gibt es keinen lebendigen Glauben ohne Gehorsam. Seit seinem Studienaufenthalt in New York, wo er eine Hinwendung zu einem persönlichen Christusglauben erlebte, sind seine Theologie und Spiritualität geprägt von der Sehnsucht, die Anweisungen der Bergpredigt wörtlich zu nehmen. Die Nachfolge, wie sie die Bergpredigt fordert, zur Mitte und zum Motor seiner Theologie und seines Lebens geworden. Wichtigstes Dokument dieses Strebens ist sein Buch "Nachfolge", eine Auslegung der Bergpredigt, die damals wie heute inspiriert, Jesus zu folgen. Die Einführung von Peter Zimmerling erläutert die Hintergründe des 1937 erstmals erschienenen Buches und zeigt, dass Bonhoeffer Leiter eines Predigerseminars der Bekennenden Kirche wurde, weil ihm damit ein Experimentierfeld zur praktischen Umsetzung seiner Gedanken zur Nachfolge zur Verfügung stand.

Decision Making God s Way

Author: Gary T. Meadors
Publisher: Baker Books
ISBN: 0801064295
Release Date: 2003-09-01
Genre: Religion

Many Christians are concerned with finding God's will for their lives. In this fresh approach to decision-making, Gary Meadors emphasizes that the Bible exhorts followers to "do" God's will, not to "find" it. The Bible is clear on many matters, but how can believers know God's will about issues the Bible does not directly address? Meadors offers Christians an objective procedure for decision-making-one based on scriptural revelation as well as their biblical worldview and set of values. Godly discernment does not depend on subjective criteria. As believers learn to apply God's truth to daily decisions, they will become more reflective and confident, taking ownership in processing life's difficult choices. Decision-Making God's Way provides helpful, thought-provoking insight for Christians wanting to know God's plans for their life.
