Bring It On-Line: Signs from God

I was watching your show and there was a gentleman that used to teach yoga. He said that he asked the Lord to show him a sign. I have read in the Bible that it is wrong to ask for God to prove himself. What are your thoughts? Read Transcript


TIME FOR E-MAIL QUESTIONS, LET'S

BRING IT ON.

DAWN SAYS THERE WAS A GENTLEMAN

THAT WAS TEACHING YOGA.

I READ IT IS WRONG FOR GOD TO

PROVE HIMSELF AND NEED TO PUT

YOUR FAITH IN GOD.

I AM NEW AND WANT TO DO RIGHT BY

GOD.

PAT: IT ISN'T WRONG TO ASK

GOD FOR A SIGN.

IT IS WRONG TO TEMPT GOD.

YOU JUMP OFF A BUILDING AND SAY

SEND THE ANGELS THAT IS TEMPTING

GOD.

G

GIDEON SAYS I'LL KNOW YOU WANT

ME TO DO IT.

PEOPLE HAVE ASKED LEADING FROM

THE LORD.

LEAD ME AND SHOW ME AND GUIDE

ME.

NOTHING WRONG FOR ASKING FOR

GUIDANCE.

WHAT IS WRONG IS TEMPTING HIM.

I AM GOING TO JUMP OFF A HIGH

BUILDING BECAUSE GOD IS GOING TO

HAVE THE ANGELS CATCH ME.

THAT IS TEMPTING GOD.

TERRY: THIS IS DON, I AM A

CHRISTIAN BUT STILL SEEM TO FEAR

DEATH.

PAT: BIBLE SAYS PERFECT LOVE

CASTS OUT FEAR.

YOU ARE STILL HOLDING ON.

YOU HAVE TO COME TO THE POINT

WHERE YOU SAY I AM GIVING IT ALL

TO JESUS.

SPEND TIME.

GO BY YOURSELF WITH THE BIBLE,

SURRENDER YOURSELF, I WANT TO

LOVE YOU PERFECTLY.

YOU ARE CONCERNED ABOUT WHAT IS

GOING TO HAPPEN TO YOU.

DEATH FOR A CHRISTIAN IS THE

RELEASE.

THAT ENTERS YOU INTO THE

PRESENCE OF GOD.

THAT IS THE EXPRESSED TRAINS OF

NEW JERUSALEM.

THAT IS THE GOOD THING.

DYING IS NOT A BAD THING IF YOU

ARE A CHRISTIAN.

DYING IF YOU ARE NOT A CHRISTIAN

IS A HORRIBLE THING BECAUSE YOU

ARE GOING TO HELL.

THAT IS WHY YOU SHOULD BE AFRAID

OF DEATH.

NOT IF YOU KNOW THE LORD.

ALL RIGHT.

TERRY: MARK SAYS PLEASE

COMMENT ON THE HASHBINJER BY

JONATHAN CAHN.

PAT: I LOVE JONATHAN.

IT IS A PASSAGE IN ISAIAH.

MAYBE IT IS A MESSAGE FOR

AMERICA.

HARBINJER IS A FORE TASTE OF

SOMETHING TO COME.

WHAT HE IS SAYING IS GOD MAY

SEND A WARNING OF SOME FUTURE

DISASTER.

I DON'T SEE ANYTHING WRONG WITH

WHAT HE HAS WRITTEN.

I LIKE JONATHAN.

HE IS A GREAT GUY.

VERY INTRIGUING FASCINATING

INSIGHTS INTO THE BIBLE.

IT IS ONE OF THOSE THINGS, WHAT

ARE YOU GOING TO DO.

YOU CAN'T CHANGE IT.

DO WHAT THE LORD SAYS ANY WAY,

WIN SOULS.

DO THE WORK OF THE LORD

REGARDLESS OF WHAT IS GOING TO

HAPPEN.

TERRY: CINDY SAYS MY SON

LIVES WITH ME AND SUPPORT HIM AS

AN EQUAL.

IT BOTHERS ME WHEN HE TAKES

MONEY TO GO OUT AND DRINK AND DO

UNSAVER RI THINGS.

I AM 62, HE IS 46.

I BELIEVE THIS PRESENT TIME

CAN'T BE COMPARED TO THE FUTURE

IN HEAVEN.

IS MY SON GOING WITH ME.

PAT: GET THE MATH.

SHE IS 62.

46.

SO SHE HAD HIM WHEN SHE WAS 16?

TERRY: I GUESS.

PAT: SHE WAS A TEENAGE

MOTHER, MAYBE A SINGLE MOTHER.

THIS GUY IS 46 STILL LIVING WITH

MOM.

SOMETHING NOT HEALTHY ABOUT

THIS.

IS HE GOING TO HEAVEN?

NOT IF HE IS OUT BOOZING AND

SHACK UP WITH PROSTITUTED.

YOU ARE ENABLING HIM.

HE OUGHT TO GET A JOB AND GET TO

WORK 46 YEARS OLD AND LIVING

WITH ME.

TERRY: HE MAY HAVE A JOB

MAYBE THEY JUST --

PAT: SOUNDS LIKE SHE IS

PAYING THE BILLS.

TERRY: SHE SAYS I SUPPORT

HIM AS AN EQUAL.

FINANCIALLY OR EMOTIONALLY.

PAT: YOU ARE STILL HIS

MOTHER.

NOW IT IS TOO LATE.

I DON'T KNOW IF HE IS GOING TO

HEAVEN.

WHAT HE IS DOING SOUNDS WRONG.

I THINK YOU ARE ENABLING HIM IN

A LIFE STYLE THAT IS UNHEALTHY.

TERRY: THIS IS KEITH WHO

SAYS MY WIFE AND I ARE BOTH

ACTORS AND DON'T WANT TO

COMPROMISE OUR FAITH FOR GIVEN A

ROLE.

HOW WILL GOD VIEW OUR CHOICES,

SHOULD WE AVOID THESE ROLES?

DOES IT MATTER IF IT IS A PART

OF TELLING A POSITIVE STORY BUT

WE ARE ACTING OUT THE BAD

CHARACTERS DOING THE PAT THINGS.

PAT: THERE IS A CHARACTER WHO

IS THE DEVIL AND SINGS A SONG

"IT AIN'T NECESSARILY SO THE

THING YOU READ IN THE BIBLE."

ACTUALLY, THAT IS THE DEVIL

TRYING TO TEMPT SOMEBODY.

IF YOU READ THE BIBLE, DEVIL IS

TRYING TO TELL YOU SOMETHING

WRONG.

FOR SOMEBODY TO PLAY OUT THE

ROLE OF THE DEVIL, I DON'T THINK

IS NECESSARY --

TERRY: SOMEBODY HAS TO DO IT

IF YOU ARE TELLING THE STORY.

PAT: IF SOMEONE WANTS YOU TO

STAR IN A PORN MOVIE AND

PARTICIPATE IN SEX SCENES, NO

WAY.

YOU KNOW, THAT IS WRONG.

I THINK, BUT OBVIOUSLY IN

LITERATURE AND FICTION, ALL

THESE THINGS, THERE ARE

CHARACTERS WHO REPRESENT EVIL.

IF YOU UNDERSTAND THE FULL

IMPORT OF WHAT IS BEING DONE, IF

YOU ARE NOT COMFORTABLE WITH IT,

DON'T DO IT.

WHATEVER IS NOT OF FAITH IS SIN.

IF YOU ARE COMFORTABLE, OKAY.

IF YOU ARE NOT, DON'T DO IT.

ALL RIGHT.

TERRY: ALL RIGHT.

WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR QUESTIONS.

WE LOVE HEARING FROM YOU.
