“For you are still carnal. For where [there are] envy, strife, and divisions among you, are you not carnal and behaving like [mere] men?” (1Cor. 3:3 NKJV)

A fellow minister and friend Dr. J. Gordon Henry, who conducts Prayer Seminars for churches and ministries nationally and internationally, laments that most churches fail to have vital prayer ministries because their members are largely “carnal.”


While I understand what Dr. Henry is saying and lament the same possibility, I think that many, who profess Christianity as their personal Faith, may actually be “carnal,” which means fleshly, in a different sense than it is commonly understood.

With graduations over and students out for summer break we may not be thinking much about school or education at this time. Most of us were glad when graduation finally came, and we were certainly relieved when classes were over for the summer.

Now that the academic year has ended, however, I have been thinking about a different school. It is a school from which there are no graduates and the curriculum is one of life-long learning. This is a school where no academic credit is given nor is a grade-point maintained. It is the School of Prayer.

{jcomments on}I have written recently a couple of articles on the subject of worldviews. An understanding of worldviews certainly reveals that there is a clear connection between what one believes about reality and the way one lives.

When something provokes a change in what one believes, there follows in tow a change in lifestyle.

Recently, I have been preparing some messages for my congregation with regard to the biblical doctrine of sin and the introduction of depravity upon humanity. During my preparatory studies I could not help but notice how one's view of reality orders their understanding of life and how it is lived.

Measurements are important. They give to us dimension, so we might comprehend size. They reckon for us moments of time so that we might schedule events to occur and date former occurrences by year, month, day, hour, and so forth.

Measurements assign to things relativity. It is by measurement we are able to access quantity or quality. We say that something is more than or less than something else, which establishes quantity, or we speak of an item being more or less like another item, thus giving in measure of quality.
