Buy Clonidine No Prescription, Last week my son, who is six years old, responded to an invitation given at a vacation Bible school he attended at another church in our community. From what I understand, there were many who responded, Clonidine ebay, and he left there expressing confidence that he was now saved because he had prayed a prayer. 150mg Clonidine, My boy is asking some very good questions concerning the gospel, and I believe that he is moving toward the point of having saving faith, but I don’t think he has an adequate understanding of his own personal guilt, 200mg Clonidine, the punishment it deserves, 500mg Clonidine, and Christ’s work in bearing that punishment in his place. By God’s grace, he will get there, Clonidine overseas. He’s headed in the right direction.
But this episode has caused me to think about the practice of VBS invitations, and I believe there is much more caution needed than there is caution exercised in our churches when it comes to this issue, Buy Clonidine No Prescription. 30mg Clonidine, I’m aware of a church not far from where I serve where the pastor did something rather disturbing last year. When it came to the time for an invitation to trust Christ to be extended, all the younger children were dismissed, Clonidine craiglist, leaving only children in grades 4-6 in the room. 10mg Clonidine, This is commendable, and this step would make it seem that this pastor was understanding of the need to avoid emotionalism, and that he was trying to avoid false conversions, 20mg Clonidine. But what happened next was startling. Buy Clonidine No Prescription, With only the older children now present, he outlined the ABC’s of becoming a Christian, and if you’re a Southern Baptist involved in VBS, you can sing these to at least four or five different tunes, courtesy of the freakishly talented Jeff Slaughter. Clonidine usa, After his presentation, he told everyone present to bow their heads, close their eyes, Clonidine mexico, and repeat after him as he led them in a “sinner’s prayer*.” When he was done, Clonidine japan, he said that all who had prayed that prayer (which he had just instructed them to pray) should come to the front, publicly professing their new-found faith in Christ.
The following Sunday, Clonidine us, this pastor stood before his church and announced that every single child in grades 4-6 who attended their VBS had been saved that week. 250mg Clonidine, Many of them were presented to the church that Sunday or following Sundays as candidates for baptism, and most were subsequently baptized. But not all, Clonidine canada.
I heard this story from the parent of one girl in that group, who responded as directed to the VBS invitation, but later recognized that nothing had changed in her heart, and she was only responding because that’s what everyone in the room was told to do, Buy Clonidine No Prescription. Her family is very involved in the church, 1000mg Clonidine, and they’re there almost every Sunday. So, the pastor came looking for her, Clonidine australia. He took her out of Sunday School, Clonidine coupon, without her parent’s knowledge, and asked her why she hadn’t presented herself for baptism. As far as I know, Clonidine india, the child has not yet been baptized. Buy Clonidine No Prescription, There are many forms of spiritual abuse. Clonidine uk, Men who use their positions of ecclesial authority in order to subjugate or gain favors from women are despicable. Those who would use their power in order to keep wrongdoing from being brought to light will face the harsh judgment of their all-seeing Creator. But in terms of eternal consequences, 100mg Clonidine, I’d be hard pressed to identify much that is worse than gaining, 40mg Clonidine, by coercion of peer pressure or other manipulative tactics, a false profession of faith in Christ from a child. For my son, Clonidine paypal, and the girl in the story above, 50mg Clonidine, the damage is minor, and temporary. I believe in the promises of God, and have confidence that these children are being trained up in the way they should go, and they’ll have full opportunity to hear, understand, and respond to the gospel, Buy Clonidine No Prescription. But for so many of the children who populate our VBS rolls each summer, 750mg Clonidine, this is the only contact they have with our churches, or any church. To offer assurance of salvation to someone who may never hear the truth again simply because they correctly repeated several sentences with their eyes closed may have consequences far greater than any other kind of spiritual abuse I can imagine, because those consequences may be eternal.
I love VBS. I love the way the Bible lessons and Jeff Slaughter’s music imprint truth from God’s Word upon young hearts. Buy Clonidine No Prescription, But we must be cautious. In our zeal to see children come to faith in Christ, we must make sure that it is the work of the Holy Spirit, and not the result of our own manipulation, that has done the converting. Only one of these actually has the power to bring new life.
*I’m all for sinners praying, but I will never tell someone who wants to become a Christian what the content of that prayer ought to be. I’ll explain what the Bible says about how one is saved, and leave the wording up to the individual and the Holy Spirit.

and I pray that the sharing of your faith may become effective for the full knowledge of every good thing that is in us for the sake of Christ.
- Philemon 6 (ESV)
This verse stood out to me in a way it never had before. It seems to me that the essence of being missional is sharing our faith in such a way that people see "every good thing that is in us for the sake of Christ." This cannot happen when we confront someone at their door, while their dinner is cooling on the table, their baby is crying, and their phone is ringing. It happens when we share our lives with people.
As I told my church, we must be intentional about developing friendships with people who need Jesus. And those friendships must be genuine friendships, where our interest is truly in that person, and not about manipulating that person into a decision. People can spot a phony quickly, and we must not be that phony. We must invest ourselves in their lives in such a way that, when they face difficult circumstances, we can be the one to stand beside them and point them to the Answer.
We can bemoan the fact that our time-tested approaches are no longer effective, or we can embrace the call to live authentic, missional lives, engaging the lost in relationships that will allow them to see the good Christ has done in us. Door-to-door salesman are simply not effective these days. Hoover and Kirby have learned this lesson and adapted their approach. Will the church?
