Questions, Pt. 6

We finished up our series on answering questions that the guys wrote down on these small pieces of paper.  The last question dealt with what to do and/or how to deal with family members, friends, etc. who seem to be straying from the path.  In addition, we also talked about our own experiences with weak points in our spiritual lives.  It was a very good discussion.  We wrestled with the idea that if someone appears to be falling away, one naturally asks the question if they were ever truly in Christ in the first place.  We talked about how easy it would be to act the whole religion thing out.  As scripture tells us, only God knows the heart.  Therefore, the solution we came to, whether it be someone else who seems to be slipping in their walk or ourselves, we start with prayer.  Yet, the only way that we start with prayer is by making prayer an instinctual reaction to life, be it good or bad.  And how do we learn to pray?  By praying!
