Fantastic Bible Study Mar 26, 2010
This book and study guide are tremendous for small groups or perhaps for anyone just wanting to get over their hurts, habits and hang-ups. I really enjoyed them both.
Precursor to Celebrate Recovery - Las Vegas/Henderson, Nevada Jan 30, 2010
My church has used this short eight chapter study to present a "taste", if you will, of the Celebrate Recovery program that is ongoing. I found that it made for a very easy transition into the 12 step program for CR. There are many naysayers who find "problems" with the CR program. I, for one, was very skeptical until I met others with "hurts, habits and hangups" and became involved with the program. Only God could have made the changes in Christian lives that were achieved through this study. If a person wants to bash the program, there is little I can do to change it. However, I am different person than I was a year ago, and I have God to thank for the change. This study was the start of a journey that I will continue until the Lord takes me home!
It AIN'T the GOSPEL, Folks.... Oct 21, 2009
It AIN'T the GOSPEL, Folks.... As a recovering Celebrate Recovery zealot, I would like to point out that this teaching and ALL teachings that flow out of The Purpose Driven Movement are NOT founded in the gospel. Baker's/Warren's 8 principles and the Beatitudes, for that matter are really LAW. Where the Beatitudes were spoken by Jesus to move us toward contrition and our recognition of our need of a Savior, the 8 principles are designed/twisted, rather, to keep us in bondage to our own lists of achievement. Where CR has it's members keeping record of their merits (what step are you on? Have you been working the program?, etc.), scripture tells us "we are all like an unclean thing, and all of our righteousnesses are like filthy rags" Isa. 64:6. No matter in which principle you find yourself successful, remember the words of Isaiah!! Then quickly remember the words of 1 John 1:9-"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness". Our restoration is found in CHRIST JESUS and his death and resurrection, NOT in our good-living! Life's Healing Choices places us in the light of victimhood, every last one of us. In this structure, it is hard to identify sin little lone, label us as sinners! Romans 3:23 says "all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God". Don't waste your time making the reality choice, the hope choice, or the commitment choice. Instead fall to your knees, repent, and quit reveling in victimhood and striving for your own righteousness and remember what Christ came for Luke 5:32- "I have not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance". Repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!!!
Not just another Self-help book Jun 26, 2009
A great companion workbook to the Life's Healing Choices book. A good way to write out thoughts and keep things going especially in a group setting. There are simple, yet profound truths to be found in the process.
