Quote from: DiscipleHeLovesToo on June 21, 2015, 07:45:09 amyou're right that the Bible does not say that God told David to use a sling and stones against Goliath - but does the Bible say that David made this choice to use a sling and stones against Goliath independent of God?

Quote from: DiscipleHeLovesToo on June 21, 2015, 07:45:09 amif so, do you think it's ok with God when you make your own decision and miss what He wants?
Quote from: DiscipleHeLovesToo on June 21, 2015, 07:45:09 amthe analogies of how husbands and wives or parents and children relate to each other break down when applied to the all-knowing Creator of everything
Quote from: DiscipleHeLovesToo on June 21, 2015, 07:45:09 am- look at the temptation of Jesus:Mat 4:3-10 KJV(3) And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.(4) But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.(5) Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple,(6) And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.(7) Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.(8 ) Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;(9) And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.(10) Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.in each case of the temptation of Jesus, the devil was trying to get Him to make a decision outside of the leading of God, and one not based on God's word (satan twisted the scriptures he quoted), but on His own human intellect
Quote from: DiscipleHeLovesToo on June 21, 2015, 07:45:09 amif you don't base what you believe on scripture, are you living by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God?
Quote from: DiscipleHeLovesToo on June 21, 2015, 07:45:09 amwhen you make your own decisions about what His word means without basing your decision on His word, do you not tempt the Lord your God?who do you worship and serve when you make your own decisions; God, or you?
Quote from: DiscipleHeLovesToo on June 21, 2015, 07:45:09 amthe Bible could have said 'the path of a good man is chosen by the Lord', or 'o Lord, i know that the way of a man is partially within himself: but it is not within man that walketh to choose his path' or 'For as many as are led by the Spirit of God in the big decisions, they are the sons of God' - but it doesn't.Joh 5:19 KJV(19) Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.Joh 12:49-50 KJV(49) For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.(50) And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.if Jesus is our example, and He neither did nor said anything without God's direction, should we be different?do you have any clear scripture to stand on for your beliefs?
Quote from: Pete on June 22, 2015, 06:58:43 pmThe story of David and Goliath illustrates through what scripture says (vs. what we might speculate) that David did not receive direction from God to use a sling and a stone when facing Goliath. David took action with something that he knew and God blessed it.
