Me. Me. Me again. I am really close on this one.

I listened to Frank's last sermon, and especially enjoyed the segment on "How to Get Married." Frank talks about a girl in the church who asked him to pray for her to find a husband. (Someone pointed out last year that Frank only talks to the pretty girls. I thought it was kind of a harsh thing to say, but then thought about it and was like, "True. True.") So here we have, what I am sure, is a very pretty girl asking Frank to pray for a husband for her. Frank tells her that he can't just pray for any husband, she needs to give him a description of what she wants. He specifies, "The height, the color of hair, the eyes, what he does for a living. I need to know this before I can pray for you." So she tells him and writes it all down on a piece of paper, which Frank keeps in his Bible and prays for every day. (Me giving a dubious look, thinking, "that's kind of odd, but whatever.") Anyway, I was wondering, don't you think that when Frank asked for a description of the guy, he was standing with his fingers crossed, crouched in anticipation hoping she would say, "Ummmm, well hmmm, I guess I kind of want an older man, someone in his 50's. If he had a bit of a lisp that'd be nice. Maybe a guy with salt and pepper hair. If he was the pastor of a large mega-church that would be good too." To which Frank is like, "Yes. I knew it." Hahahaha... ...ahhhh.... I kid. I kid. I'm only joking. Still it would be kind of funny. Also, just want to give everyone a heads up, but we're thinking of moving the blog to another domain name. A place that will allow us more control over the site and content. I hope to debut this sometimes next week. Have a great weekend.

I'm surprised there isn't some kind of form you can fill out so God knows what to do and who to send your way if you're praying for a spouse. Perhaps they could be inserted in the back of the Bible instead of all those outdated maps.

Ley me finish Justins story. Whenever pastor Frank opened his bible and saw her prayer request he would pray. He said she called him one day to tell him she had found someone special that wa everything she was wanting,along with a few of Gods surprises Frank added.You can call it coincidence or positive thinking but I think its worth mentioning that although this awsome man of God has over 5000 people to worry about in his congregation,he still finds time out of his day to pray specific prayers for people.

I was talking to an old friend of yours Justin and he says that your a cool guy and i think we have similar personalities.He also said that your issue isnt with cbc,its with accountability. You like to do things that may not be right in Gods eyes but that you enjoy doing.He said after law school you just got caught up in having fun and didnt want to have to answer for it.Also,keep in mind that cbc is not like the bt of old.Its a lot more laid back than it used to be and poeple can still have fun ,but they have to always put Christ first and ask themselves if he would approve

WWJD,

Dude, you're not making any sense, *and* you're annoying me.
Cat, can't we call the feds? Pretty please?

OK, so no. But seriously, WWJD (catchy handle...), you can't be really and truly reading the Bible and believing in this Frank-as-EHarmony bull$hit (Dear God, please send Britney a tall, dark man who likes dogs, cuddling, and long walks on the beach....) as doctrinally acceptable. And why is he talking about it? What's the point of any of this? How is this supposed to improve peoples' lives in a meaningful way? Getting married is (hopefully) something a person does because s/he finds a person s/he thinks s/he wants to live with forever. First the person, then the decision to marry. Deciding that you want to "be married" in the abstract is a little obtuse, in my mind.

Getting married isn't supposed to be a goal or a benchmark or (heaven forbid) a social status symbol...it's something people choose to do because they love each other and not an end to be sought for its own merit. Sure, everyone needs to love and be loved, but isn't it just asking for trouble to demand that loving/being loved be delivered in a wedding-shaped package and be delivered now? Doesn't that create a STRONG probability for seeing what one wants to see, and making a BIG mistake as a result? Please. This isn't even a question of theology (though Paul's stance on the subject seems clear enough...), it's a question of good common sense. Man of God or not, Frank's off his rocker on this one...

On a less serious note, Locutus, I think you could make a fortune on the EHarmony Revised Standard Edition of the Bible. You just include the detachable mail-in form in the back, and instead of maps or a concordance, you could include an address book, local restaurant suggestions, handy gift ideas, favorite Biblical pick-up lines to break the ice, etc.

I never said everyone has to get married and neither did pastor Frabnk.His point was that if you have a need in your life(in which this case it was this young lady wanting to find a husband which believe it or not a lot of single people do pray for)wether its a spouse,a new job,more friends ,help with a drug addiction,or an abusive parent or whatever it may be,that you pray in faith and be specific. Dont just pray for any job, pray for a job you actually want or as in her case,dont just pray for a spouse,pray for the kind of person you would like to marry.The sermon was not about marriage.It was about doing what so many should be doing and say they do but usually arent, and thats pray and pray often. God wants to asnwer prayers but we need to ask before he can answer

In the Lord's Prayer it says: "THY will be done on earth....." (but you all know this). If I had filled out an order form for a spouse I would have ended up with a hot looking, arrogant, yet immature jackass of a husband (A few fellow PBC students that I knew come to mind when I think of that description). Instead God had a great surprise for me, a smart, handsome, kind man who loves God and knows how to provide for his family (the Bachelors degree from PBC didn't help much in this department but we figured it out!).
I think prayer for specifics is stupid because God probably has something much better for us than we are asking for and we are limiting the scope of our "vision" (I hate to use that word but it works in this instance) when we limit Him to our own imagination.

Another thing that's sticking in my craw: How can the God of the universe be to busy to hear our "general" prayers?? Is He not ALL powerful (yet unable to be bothered by our "lack of focus"!)? Romans 8:26 says: Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.
See, sometimes we do not know what to pray and God (the busy One) knows that and has provided help, not a brush-off.
Just as the main value in a home is: Location, location, location, the main value in a good church is: Doctrine, doctrine, doctrine. And PF's doctrine is quite a bit too flexible for my comfort.

Too many use this "Thy will be done "Heres an example."Lord,my mom is dying of cancer.Your will be done" or "Lord, I pray with faith , and in the name of Jesus Christ , that my mother be healed of cancer.I know its your will that we extend the kingdom of God to all the lost and that mother still has a purpose here.Amen"

remember when God threatened to destroy the jews for their sins but Moses pleaded with him not to.He was negotiating with God if you remember.He didnt say Your will be done,he pleaded with God to spare them and God did.Its not about just praying that his will be done , its about knowing what his will is and then pray for it.He wants us to have things to pray for and he wants to us talk to him and interact.

WWJD,
When Frank says "God is too busy for general prayer"...
There are so many things about that statement that are downright incorrect and unbiblical. God wants to hear from us even when we don't know what to pray!!
My concern is a statement like this will cause people to NOT pray because they're not sure of what they want.
And to order a spouse like you're ordering at a drive thru ("um, yes, I'd like a tall man, brown eyes, sandy blonde hair and oh! can I get fries with that?") instead of praying for God's will (how about "Lord, let me glorify You in my single-ness and help me to trust You to bring me the right spouse at the right time.") is a set up for frustration and jumping at the first thing that comes along because it might meet your "list". Sadly I have a long list of now divorced friends who grew up in BT/CBC and picked a spouse this way.

WWJD,

"...if you have a need in your life..."

Um, hello! A spouse is not a need! The sooner people start believing that, the better off we'll all be...and the lower the divorce rates will hopefully become. For everyone's sake, get married because you WANT to, not because someone made you believe you NEED to. Good grief!

Look, I think his sermon is silly. If people have something they want, they'll ask for it, and if God is omniscient and omnipotent, God's smart enough and powerful enough to work out the details. Yes, Jesus said for his followers to pray, but there was nothing in that about making God a detailed chore chart.

Also, let me point out to you that the "do" example of specific prayer you used in your 6:55 comment was Moses....and the "don't" example of general prayer was.....Jesus. And, more specifically (:)), Jesus telling his disciples, "When you pray, say..." Oops.

From a biblical standpoint, Frank's whole premise (not just the "finding a spouse" bit that happens to be obviously funny) is bologna, a sermon that was made up so someone would have something to say, and now you're fighting for it simply because somebody you admire said it. Let it go....if you like it because you like him, that's fine for you. But, please don't expect to convince anyone else on those grounds.

I would like to know what you think the key is to knowing God's will (when it comes to praying for things). Sometimes in my life I have been downright clueless as to what He was doing in my life and what His will is! At those times I have been more prone to pray "Lord I have know idea what You are doing in all of this but I do know that You are good and that I can trust You. Help me to trust You more." Things inevitably work out better than I even imagined even though I didn't know His will! We are dust and He know it!

I know it's nice to be anonymous and all, but I'm totally curious if I know any of you. Anyway, this reminds me somewhat of "the list" everyone supposedly makes of their dream spouse, and God magically fills in their shopping list. I fully agree with Jonah - I'm so glad God didn't give me what I asked for, because I would have ended up miserable with a total dilhole for a husband. Instead, God gave me what I needed in a husband because He made me and He knew what I really needed in my life. And being married isn't some sort of reward for praying hard enough. It brings just as many challenges as being single does, in fact, sometimes more.

My question is, how can you find out what God's will for your life is unless you're praying for Him to show it to you? And if you're sitting there praying "God, show me Your will so that I can pray more effectively" isn't that a general prayer? What about praying for your responses to what God does in your life? As in "God, I don't know what Your will is in this situation, but I know You are in control - help me to trust You"?

To me, this is just another way of CBC not-so-subtly telling people that they aren't mature enough to have their own relationship with God. I always thought that I couldn't just talk to God, one on one. And I didn't for a long time, until I got to a church that wasn't baby-stepping everything for me. Pray how you want, when you want, the way you want. God knows you and hears you, just as long as you keep talking.

So yesterday I was talking to Pastor Frank in the foyer about why only half of the sanctuary carpet is teal and the other half is a grey pattern. He was pointing out for me the scriptural basis for the two-toned carpet when he opened his Bible and out dropped a little piece of paper.

"Oh, this reminds me," he said, "I'm praying for this girl to find a husband; I told her I would pray for her whenever I came across her list in my Bible. She's an overweight, vegan, disenfranchised choral conductor in Hungary with a lexicon firmly wedged up her butt, whose fragrant bursts of armpit funk aren't much unlike a common barn boar slathered in patchouli. Curiously, she also secretly wishes she could pee standing up--don't ask me how I know. Anyway, she asked me to be interceding on her behalf for either a Buddhist version of Michael Landon who lovingly refers to her as 'Sargeant Steinem' and who has a killer falsetto... or a paper-trained Maltese Poodle (they're hypo-allergenic, you know). Would you mind joining me in prayer for just a sec?"

"Sure," I said, eager to help out a sister in the Lord. We both layed hands on that little piece of paper, which was a point of contact for our faith.

"Oh God," we agreed, "We know that you're the God of the impossible. We need a quantum miracle bigger than the creation of the heavens and earth. We're asking for the instant, miraculous materialization of a Buddhist Michael Landon who can drop and do fifty push-ups at the tap of a music stand--and who has no testicles so he can belt out the Aria di Mezzo Carattere--to be joined in holy matrimony to our dear sister. Lord, we know you're busy and prefer specific prayers, so we're interceding for our sister and believing for a miracle. Either that or a paper-trained Maltese Poodle because you've mmade them marvelously hypo-allergenic. We agree together for these specific things. Amen."

Then we decided to go to Starbucks.

Easy people.Once again,there is nothing wrong with general prayers sometimes but if you look back at all the prayers from the old testament up to Jesus and the disciples, their prayers were very specific and not the powerless ,vague and routine prayers that a lot of fake christians pray today. You guys have to agree with me that as a whole,there are lot of churches that are dying here in america because they are spiritually dead.And Im sure we all have those friends who say they go to church but you would never know by looking at their life.The whole sermon was about getting back to having a strong prayer life and getting back to having faith in a limitless God.As far as Gods will in our life,all of us as christians should know His will.Its to love one another as Christ loved the church and spread the gospel to the lost.Thats why he said "Thy kingdom come,Thy will be done". If you want a new job you dont just say"well , if its His will ill get it.You have to out there and try to find one and God will bless you for that.

Hannah

We agree with each other. When we pray ,we are talking to God and thats the whole point.That we pray more

Let me just point one thing.I agree with most of what you guys are saying and i guarantee that if own pastor were to preach it you would respect him.But you guys are so anti Frank that you close yourself off to what he says and the fact that you quote scripture and yet obvious blasphemers like bigcahuna seem to be on your side would worry me .

Big Cahuna,

That was friggin' hilarious! And quite well-researched (if completely inaccurate) at some level, particularly the bit about Michael Landon....did someone tell you about my secret love of "Little House on the Prairie"? I kinda can't figure out if you're trying to make me mad or if you're using me as comic relief...fortunately, though, it doesn't really matter. But, for the record, no one calls me sargeant, I don't like poodles, I have nothing against testes (though you should know that falsetto and testes very much go together, actually) and I'm not disenfranchised....there's a McDonalds just up the street. :) Just trying to help out with your specific prayers. Oh, and add this to the list:
I'm not looking for a husband.

I highly doubt that. One of the *first* things you learn when you "leave the fold" at BT/CBC is how to think for yourself. You become much more interested in scripture, and how to properly research what the pastor is saying/preaching so that the spirit inside you can affirm whether it is right/wrong or way off.

In many cases, in BT/CBC (and many churches), the problem is that the preacher takes the place of the persons spirit.. and the person never knows if what they are hearing is accurately biblical/Godly, or just the nicely wrapped words of a charismatic preacher.

You nailed in Henri. If my pastor said something like that every alarm in my head would go off! Really WWJD, if you enjoy warm fuzzy, feel good, half-truths, then watch Oprah. When I'm at church, I want the whole truth straight out of the Bible, not filtered through a "let's be Starbucks-relevant" filter.
And just because Big Cahuna is funny and deliciously sarcastic does not mean he's being blasphemous. He's gifted. :)

I don't agree with the statement that, "the preacher takes the place of the person's spirit", at all. I've been going to CBC or about ten years and never once has PF ever dissuaded me to not open my BIble and check for myself. As a matter of fact in today's sermon he handed out a form to look up scriptures so one could be prepared for the following message. Many of you have said in the past that PF never opens or has his Bible with him when he is preaching. That is flat out wrong. He does use the big screen to highlight each scripture, but I don't see the sin in that. If the Lord allowed the same technology to exsist back then, I wonder how many men of God would have used it?

Now I do believe that the Holy Spirit is there to assist a person in praying. But there is nothing wrong with praying specificly as well. This causes more interaction with the Lord through prayer and a strenghtening of faith that the Lord is mighty enough to fulfill your request. People did pray for specifics in the Bible and often times got more.

Either way, the Lord knows your heart. He knows what you need.

ONE LOVE & WWJD,

Most people here would not accuse Frank of not using the Scriptures. He is well-trained and has excellent biblical research skills. Personally, my contention with PF is not in what he does, but in what he does not do.

When is the last time you heard him encourage a person to spend time, yes T-I-M-E alone with God, rather than buy God with tithe?

When is the last time you heard him preach about aiming your life toward the target of God's heart rather than the target of "honor" or "favor" or "power" or "anointing"?

When is the last time he taught on fasting and prayer in the context of humility and tenderness to the voice of the Holy Spirit?

When is the last time he preached "Jesus and HIM crucified" (the cross) rather than Jesus as Santa Claus?

IMHO, CBC presents a very warped picture of the Lord. Yes, there are people there who love Jesus and follow after Him whole-heartedly, but they generally do it in spite of the church.

Also, CBC presents a faulty image of what it means to be a Christian. It's an image that must be lived up to, or your faith is questioned.

So, back to the original thought. Yes, Frank can put together an excellent sermon. But just as a challenge, consider what you walked away with. If you are closer to God, then that's awesome. If you are stirred to polish up your image before men or even before God (to be worthy of His attention), then it's a warning.

Its funny you ask that because he started the new year with a 21 day Daniel fast to humble ourselves for the new year so that we can hear him when we read our bible

You sound like you have a good head on your shoulders. I agree with alot what you say and I try stay open to hear what others are trying to say also. The difference between listening and hearing is obvious. If I hear you than I know what your point was and the contex in which you said. If I was listening than I heard your words but did not get the message.

WWJD is a man of God. I can tell you all this from a personal stand point. I too am a productive and very satisfied CBC member. Not just someone who attends but an actual tithing member. Yes a tithing member. I give my money to city buisness church. Since I started tithing on a regular basis after I finished the partnership class I have literally doubled my income from 34,000 to over 60,000 a year. Sure I was making enough to live on but God had better in mind for me. I tithe not because the church tells me too but becuase my bible tell me so. It says give my first 10%. I learned this basic Principle by watch first hand the blessing of God in

Really, it's true, look back at the history of this blog, and you will find this very thing happens every time. No one really wants to hear anything good that PF is teaching about, only want to pick on CBC or gossip about their "hang ups" with the church and people there. But I know, I know, that what this blog is all about, not the Lord or the truth, just picking on CBC and PF, it's everyone's "therapy." You don't have to come back at this with those comments, we get it already.

Contine from last post.

I learned this by seeing the Blessing God Gave to WWJD. When I saw The Favor he had and all he did was begin tithing his walk with God went from Present to Walking with God like say Moses walked with God. I know that is an extreme example but seriousley I saw it first hand. He went from being an avg Christian to someone who could cast demons out. His wife his family their marriage it all changed for the better and the only thing they differently was begin to tithe. Now I am no idiot so I got in on some of the action and just like WWJD my life changed on a large scale. I went from knowing I am saved and that god had is hand in my life to seeing god activley move in my life on a daily basis. My wife and I fell in love again after 6 years of marriage. My family members got saved. My income increased and most importantley I knew for the first time an invisable god. Yes cbc Gives more time than the avg church to the offering but it takes millions to move the kind of mountians we move. This church supports thousands of diff. Programs and you cannot do that with out money. We Feed over 2 houndred familys every month who do not have enough money after rent to buy food but they make too much money for food stamps. We give cars free and clear to single mothers who otherwise would not have transportation to get their children to the DR's office. We plant and support churches in over 30 nations and in hundreds of different languages. We are one church that is really touching the nations, And guess what people It takes Money. If Mother Teresa was asking for free medical supplies would you judge her for it and call her selfish. No I dont think you would. Now come on, we all know the church itself is not perfect. If anybody knows this it is me. I got my wife pregnant out of marriage while we were involved in leadership and yes I was treated very bad by some people, but those people do represent the heart of god or the nature of the whole church. They acted as individuals who treated me very poorley. In fact I had one elder tell me that he knew the day he met me that I was someone to look out for and that I should not be trusted. I stood there yelling at him face to face and it took me a couple of years to forgive him for that. I tell you this because it is important to see that I have had the same bad exp. as some of you who get on this blog and bash cbc. But I am called to forgive my offenders just as god forgave me. The Church is not people the Church is Gods Love expressed to his people in many diff ways. Please next time you think of cbc try to think of some of the good people you met there or the good times you had when you were there. I know you all had them. In marketing we learn that many people have great experiences as consumers for various products but the truth is we are 10 times more likeley to read bad press than good press becuase that to us is worth taking the extra time to talk about. People feel very strongley if they feel like they have been dooped to report it to the masses in a an attempt to save others from making the same foolish choice. The old learn from my mistake bit. Hense the Blog. I am one of those few who are not hear to judge anyone I just want to report my good experience whith city bible church.

Dear Anonymous implies that WWJD's posts are "so there" -- that we are all left speechless and unable to respond. Please consider that perhaps the silence means "Never mind. I'm through arguing."

If WWJD and Master Storyteller are blessed by being in CBC, then more power to them.

I was actually in the Jan 1 service, and I heard with my own little ears what was said. And I was very upset -- especially with the declaration to proclaim "a mighty blessing on myself!"

So we must be hearing through different filters or something.
