Title: THE HEART AND SPIRITUAL TRANSFORMATION


1
THE HEART AND SPIRITUAL TRANSFORMATION
  • HOW ACTUAL OBEDIENCE TO CHRIST IN REAL LIFE
    BECOMES POSSIBLE AND REAL

2
Things Great Teachers Must Teach
  • The nature of reality
  • Who is well-off
  • Blessedness
  • The Good Life
  • Who is a really good person?
  • How to become a really good person
  • Jesus answers each of these in a manner far
  • superior to anyone else Plato, Buddha, Freud.
  • Jesus is the smartest One ever!


3
Jesus Answers The Question Of Moral Knowledge
  • The "great commandments" of Mark 1229-31
  • Refined by John 1334 and I John 27-11 and I

Cleaning The Inside Of The Cup. (Matt. 2325)
  • If you would keep Jesus teaching, dont aim at
    that, but at becoming the kind of person who
    naturally (supernaturally of course) does that
    Routinely, easily!!!
  • The source of good and evil in human life is the
    human heart. (Mark 721-23, Luke 643-45, Prov.
    423)
  • And then spread to all of the parts of the human
    self.

8
The Life of the Flesh
  • The Burger King life is the life of the flesh
    Have it YOURRRRRRRRR Way!
  • Flesh consists of our natural human abilities
    what we can do without special divine
    interaction.
  • Not evil in itself, but death when made our
    ultimate point of reference. (Rom. 84-8)

9
Our Two Wills
  • Vital Will Patterns of willing oriented to
    attractive objects without reference to other
    possible willings or life as a whole practically
    identical with desire.
  • Reflective Will Here will is oriented toward
    what is good for the person as a whole, not
    toward the merely desired. SEEKS ALTERNATIVES,
    WHAT IS BEST.
  • Good is not the same thing as the desired.

10
WAR OF FLESH AND SPIRIT
  • THE PICTURE OF GAL.514-26
  • THE SPIRIT OF VS. 17 IS NOT JUST THE HOLY
    SPIRIT, BUT ALSO THE HUMAN SPIRIT, THE WILL.
  • THE UNIVERSAL TASK OF MORALITY IS TO PROVIDE
    RESOURCES TO DO WHAT YOU DO NOT WANT TO DO AND
    NOT DO WHAT YOU WANT TO DO.

11
DESIRE UNGOVERNED BY GOOD DESTROYS
  • II PETER 14
  • I PETER 211 42
  • JAMES 41-3
  • GALATIANS 519-21
  • MARK 720-23

12
The Cross Sets Aside the Flesh
  • The cross as Gods act (Col. 211-15)
  • The cross as your choice (Luke 1427)
  • We enter through the wounds of His humanity into
    the depths of His divinity.
  • The cross sets aside the flesh as our life.
  • Taking up the cross we follow Christwe are his
    students.

13
The Reliable Pattern of Kingdom Growth
  • Vision
  • Intention
  • Means

14
Illustrations
  • Relief from anger and contempt.
  • Matt. 520-26.
  • Relief from cultivated lusting.
  • Matt. 527-30
  • Shifting our burdens through prayer.
  • Matt. 77-12.
  • Etc.

15
V.I.M IN PORNOGRAPHY
  • PORNOGRAPHY SUPPORTS ITSELF IN THE INDIVIDUAL
    THROUGH A V.I.M. THAT IS IN PLACE A VISION OF
    GOD, ONESELF, AND WOMEN AND MEN AN INTENTION TO
    USE PORNOGRAPHY AS A RESOURCES FOR LIVING, AND
    THE PROVISION OF MEANS.
  • REPLACING WITH A GODLY V.I.M

16
Addiction and the Flesh
  • The addicted person has conceded to feeling the
    right to rule over the will.
  • How fleshly lusts war against the soul
  • They are servants who have usurped the place of
    the proper master of the human self.
  • Feeling takes the place of will.
  • Life as a whole falls apart, corrupts.

17

18
The Recovery of Moral Knowledge Can Lie Only
Through Obedience to Jesus Christ.
  • He is in fact the source of the highest moral
    teachings the world has known.
  • No one has replaced him. Any suggestions?
  • Only a community of obedience can make this
    clear.

19
How Do We Regard Jesus?
  • "What think you of Christ?"
  • The perennial question central to human life.
  • Savior, or savior and teacher?
  • Liberalism destroyed the credibility of Jesus the
    teacher.
  • And set us up for discipleshipless Christianity.
  • The Conservative reaction didnt help.

20
He Is the Most Intelligent Person Who Ever Lived
on Earth.
  • Whatever your field, He Is
  • the best person in that field. Colossians 117
    and 23
  • Focused upon the most important needs of
    humanity, of course, which are religious and
    moral.

21
Three Dimensions of Discipleship
  • Learning to do what Jesus said in scripture
  • Learning to obey Him in the non-commanded details
    of actual life and business
  • Learning to exercise His powertraining for
    reigning
  • Prayer
  • Speaking and acting under authority

22
SCHOOLS OF OBEDIENCE
  • THE ASSEMBLIES AND ASSOCIATIONS OF DISCIPLES
    EXIST ONLY TO TRAIN PEOPLE IN OBEDIENCE TO
    CHRISTTEACH THEM TO DO ALL THINGS I HAVE
    COMMANDED.
  • THEY CAN DO THIS IF THEY CORPORATELY TAKE UP THE
    V.I.M. PATTERN

23
V I M AgainNow At The Corporate Level
  • Vision of what your community of faith in Jesus
    Christ could be.
  • Intention to actually do what Jesus laid down in
    his charge to his people, The Great Commission.
  • Means to accomplish the task.

24
THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD
  • THE PEOPLE OF CHRIST STANDING IN THE WORLD AS
    THEY OUGHT RESTORE UNDERSTANDING OF THE GOOD AND
    THE RIGHT TO A WORLD THAT HAS LOST MORAL
    KNOWLEDGE.
  • IT ALONE DOES THIS, NOT ANY OTHER SOCIAL
    INSTITUTION OR THE GOVERNMENT.
