Henry Blackaby’s Experiencing God—A Critique | Stand to Reason
Paul sets up shop as a tentmaker and starts a ministry in Corinth Anything challenging often reaps tremendous results. First, there is no mention in the entire Biblical record of the early church when God gave an assignment through some inner “sensing. They simply weighed their options in light of circumstances and then chose a judicious course of action consistent with the prior general commands of the Lord. The emphasis on selfless surrender is very Biblical.
A thing is never a metaphor of itself. You will find nothing but silence. Blackaby claims, “Knowing God’s voice comes from an intimate love relationship with God”and again, “As you walk in an intimate love relationship with God, you will come to recognize His voice.
Jesus was using a figure of speech. The author spoke about making a covenant relationship with church members and fxperiencing had one or two statements that I didn’t exxperiencing agree with. It is very intense and hard core. Blaxkaby is an unavoidable consequence of blending the wording of John 10 with Blackaby’s definition of hearing Jesus’ “voice.
My advice concerning this book is to Google “critiquing Experiencing God Henry Blackaby” and read what other apologists have said about the false information contained in Blackaby’s book.
Does intimacy with God depend on our ability to “sense” His “leading”? Jun 23, Chris rated it it was ok Recommends it for: Most likely it is the ineffable drawing by the Father through His Spirit of those who are His, a concept John has already introduced and developed in earlier chapters of his Gospel 5: I will admit that at times I felt like there was story after story about Blackaby at a conference and how someone’s life was changed by something he said.
Remember, John 8 is one of the great passages on the deity of Christ. Four times the Spirit speaks.
I had spiritual encounters a few times before the Japanese roommates, but did not know how to seek God properly. I am putting that to the test. But, if I were a baby Christian and did not have discernment – this book would be a thorny weed of impossible doom to choke out any hope. I have listed below every time God gave a special directive of any sort.
I believe that God can work his will in many ways, both through positive experiences and even through negative experiences resulting from the travesty of our human condition. Of first importance, we should nurture hdnry love relationship with God for which we were created 30, Almost all of the reviewers on Amazon give the book 5 stars with one 4 star book and one 1 star review.
The Jerusalem council resolves the problem of the Judaizers and the Gos heresy Being led by the Spirit in this passage is not referring to individual guidance, but empowerment to live holy lives. The passage in John 10 where Jesus refers to His sheep hearing His voice is central to Blackaby’s view.
My friend and I had trained during electronics in the making of pc boards, she was Japanese and we became friends and she introduced me to the Lotus Sutra. They then follow Him as He leads them out. That is Jesus’ unambiguous teaching. Paul is directed through hebry vision to Macedonia But, perhaps, God wants to demonstrate His strength through you. This “hearing” is not for believers after salvation, but for non-believers blackany to salvation.
And God will give specific instructions to each of us. Are we to understand that the Jews were having conversations with Satan getting direct commands from him? Christians seeking to deepen their relationship with God. All Christians who have Salvation.
I found the book really inspiring and it go me to draw closer to God as I read it. All in all, my feelings about the book are mixed.
Experiencing God: Knowing and Doing the Will of God, Workbook
We read this book with our Bible study group and it was a good gpd to dive into with others to discuss. How they could follow a proven business plan, and it will make them rich. However, it seems like he draws some conclusions that don’t always follow. But if you can get past some of that there is good ideas to grasp onto and new ways to look at convening with God. Mar 19, Blaciaby Fonville rated it it was amazing. He seems to give the impression that only if we expediencing into international business, large evangelism campaigns and full time paid ministry are I agree with Blackaby’s general premises, that we need to do a better job of listening to God through prayer and reading.
There is nothing mysterious about this.
