Subject: Breaking the roof
In reply to: Chris 's message, "Re: overcoming humanistic ideas" on 07:57:30 08/12/04 Thu

I think I've heard that message a few times as well.
Yes, there was an emphasis on how the friends of Jesus violated other's property...

But even with the interpretation you, Chris, gave, we still need to see that NEITHER Jesus NOR His disciples openly approved of, much less participated in, the action of taking the roof apart, much rather they focused their attention to the problem at hand.

But as Christians we should realize anyway that Jesus can work with or heal a person REGARDLESS of an environment, not BECAUSE of an environment (which, if you think logically, leads the UBF "training" as a whole ad absurdum).

Our Lord Jesus is the Lord of the universe, He is souvreign no matter what the situation, we don't need to arrange any physical thing "so that He can work", the only thing we need to do is to pray and be ready - but this NEVER comes with a violation of property rights or country laws (well unless we live in a country which outlaws prayer to the Lord, but those countries are really scarce nowadays and even so it does not imply that).

In Christ,
Mike K.
