I probably agree with every word you post.  Sadly they do not seem to be relevant.

Is the love of God grown cold in you?
Surely in the last days their love shall grow cold...
Not you for you shall seek the truth I am sending you a pm.
In it is the key Truth which will open the door for you that you require.

Love Lynne...xx

Keep this to yourself till you are excercised in discernment to share with others.

Fact is Lynne, men are so used to relying on the world to take care of them that they have forgotten how to let God take care of them.

I do wish I knew what you are talking about.

Hi Lynne
In response to your first post in response to mine - I think what you say makes sense so thanks.

But I think you misread the original post - I am not starting a bible study group. I actually joined the one I am in about 4 years ago, it had been running for about 15 years before that. We are all Christians of long standing. I started to help lead discussions about 3 years ago

What I was actually doing was help facilitiate a meeting of other house group leaders

The ones I have got most out of are those that the leader allows conversations to run all over the place. But I like a little chaos.

My wife, however, now avoids Bible study groups as she says that it's just the ignorant trying to teach the ignorant! I can kind of see her point. She would like them to be really structured and also ensure that there is a "professional" there of some kind to point out obvious error (either the priest, or we have a couple of doctors of theology in our church, but it could be any one who has been properly taught).

So there you have it - two complete opposites of what people want from a Bible study group!

Does that help? I suspect not!

Michael

The problem is the person who knows little but keeps talking. Look around at this forum.

But that is only a problem if the person never listens.

Hi Michael Dove  Smilie_PDT
I can see both points of view, and our house group sometimes has wide ranging discussions which can either be great or a complete sidetrack down which we get lost discussing the tense of a particular verb for 10 minutes - talk about missing the wood for the trees. We also have an ordained minister who sometimes attends our group, but she is happy not to lead most times, but at least we shouldn't go too far wrong

But usually there is a structure, either our vicar has put out some discussion notes, or we are following a study book. I tend to put in some preparation as well when I'm leading so that at least I have some of the answers in advance.
