Bring It On-Line: Faith Killer

I know of a Christian lady unwilling to go to the doctors to get treated. My brother will witness to people with a pack of smokes in his back pocket, what do you think? On your show, you've said that if we pray with the words "if it is ... ... Read Transcript


LET'S ANSWER SOME E-MAIL

QUESTIONS.

Pat: IT IS A GREAT

DAY.

THE LORD IS ON THE THRONE

AND HE LOVES US, AND HE'S

GOING TO GIVE US ANSWERS, WE

HOPE, TO SOME OF THESE TOUGH

QUESTIONS.

Terry: OKAY.

THIS FIRST ONE IS FROM JOE,

PAT, WHO SAYS, "INSIDE

ENTERTAINMENT" I KNO, "I

KNOW OF A CHRISTIAN LADY WHO

HAS SEVERAL PROBLEMS BUT SHE

REFUSES TO GO TO THE

DOCTOR.

I WILL PAY FOR THE DOCTOR

VISIT, BUT SHE IS IGNORING

MY PHONE CALL AND HER FAMILY

MEMBERS ARE ACTING LIKE THEY

DON'T CARE.

WHAT SHOULD I DO?"

Pat: THE THING FOR US

THAT IS SO HARD IS THAT WE

CAN'T LIVE SOMEBODY ELSE'S

LIFE.

YOU CAN'T DO IT.

YOU CAN'T LIVE YOUR MOTHER'S

LIFE, YOU CAN'T LIVE YOUR

SISTER'S LIFE.

YOU CAN'T LIVE YOUR SPOUSE'S

LIFE.

YOU CAN INFLUENCE YOUR

HUSBAND OR WIFE MORE THAN

ANYBODY ELSE, BUT YOU CAN'T

LIVE THEIR LIFE.

YOU CAN OFFER ADVICE AND

OFFER MONEY.

BUT IF THE LADY WANTS --

SOME PEOPLE ENJOY THEIR

SICKNESS.

I KNOW IT SOUNDS CRUEL, BUT

THEY ENJOY BEING SICK

BECAUSE IT GIVES THEM AN

EXCUSE NOT TO DO THE WORK.

I'D LOVE TO DO THAT WORK,

BUT I'VE GOT RHEUMATOID

ARTHRITIS --

Terry: I CAN'T DO IT.

Pat: RIGHT.

YOU PRAY AND GIVE IT TO THE

LORD AND GET ON WITH YOUR

LIFE.

Terry: RANDALL

SAYS, "MY BROTHER WILL

WITNESS TO PEOPLE WITH A

PACK OF SMOKES IN HIS BACK

POCKET.

I TRY TO TELL HIM HE IS NOT

DOING IT RIGHT.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?"

Pat: FIRST OF ALL, GET

DELIVERED AND THEN TELL ME

ABOUT YOUR SAVIOR.

Terry: THIS IS

BRETT, "ON YOUR SHOW, YOU

SAID IF WE PRAY WITH THE

WORDS IF IT IS YOUR WILL, IT

IS A FAITH KILLER.

HOWEVER, IN JAMES 4: 15, IT

SAYS WE OUGHT TO USE THOSE

WORDS IN OUR PRAYERS.

THIS IS CONFUSING, I WANT MY

PRAYERS TO BE ANSWERED

ACCORDING TO GOD'S WILL

SINCE HE KNOWS WHAT IS BEST

FOR ME.

CAN YOU PLEASE EXPLAIN YOUR

STANCE MORE CLEARLY?"

Pat: WHAT JAMES WAS

SAYING, A PERSON SAYS I'M

GOING TO GO TO SUCH A CITY

AND I'M GOING TO BUY AND

SELL AND I'M GOING TO DO IT

NEXT YEAR.

AND JAMES SAYS, YOU BETTER

SAY IF IT'S GOD'S WILL.

Terry: DON'T MAKE YOUR

PLANS APART FROM GOD'S

WILL.

Pat: DON'T MAKE YOUR

PLANS APART FROM GOD'S

WILL.

AND IT IS SOMETHING ELSE TO

SAY IN THE NAME OF JESUS BE

HEALED, IF IT BE THY WILL.

THAT'S THE FAITH KILLER.

OF COURSE YOU WANT TO HAVE

YOUR PRAYERS ANSWERED.

THE OTHER THING IS, LORD, I

SURRENDER TO YOU THIS

SITUATION, I SURRENDER THIS

SICK PERSON, I SURRENDER MY

LIFE.

I ASK YOUR WISDOM.

I ASK YOUR GUIDANCE.

THEN YOU LEARN WHAT YOU NEED

TO DO IS TO PRAY AND SAY

WHAT IS YOUR WILL IN THE

MATTER.

HAVING LEARNED THE WILL,

THEN YOU SPEAK IT.

Terry: AND YOU'VE SAID

YOU HAVE HAD SITUATIONS

WHERE YOU FELT GOD WASN'T

GOING TO HEAL SOMEONE WHEN

YOU PRAYED.

Pat: THAT'S RIGHT.

GOD SAID TO JEREMIAH, DON'T

PRAY FOR THOSE PEOPLE.

ONE LAST QUESTION.

Terry: THEY SAID WE'RE

OUT HERE.

YOU NEED TO DO YOUR POWER

MINUTE.

Pat: OH, I'M RUNNING

OUT OF TIME.

QUICKIES.

TWO QUESTIONS.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH TODAY'S

POWER MINUTE FROM MATTHEW

11: "JESUS SAID COME ONTO

ME, ALL YOU LABOR OR ARE

HEAVY LABORED, AND I WILL

GIVE YOU REST.

FOR I AM GENTLE AND LOWLY AT

HEART, AND YOU WILL FIND

REST IN YOUR SOULS."

THAT'S ALL OF THE TIME WE'VE

GOT.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING

WITH US.

TOMORROW, COULD GOOD FOOD BE

BAD FOR YOU?

HEAR HOW AMERICANS ARE

STARVING THEMSELVES INTO

OBESITY.

DEAR ME, WE JUST TEACH YOU

ALL KINDS OF THINGS ON THIS

PROGRAM.

YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS ONE

MINUTE OF IT.

WE'LL SEE YOU THEN.

BYE-BYE.
