  • What Were You Thinking?

    Contributed by John Gaston on Dec 8, 2016

    Why didn’t Peter “snap” when he heard the rooster crow the first time? God gives us warnings, afterward we get consequences. Jesus' word always came to pass. Why didn't Peter get the hint? Do we?

    WHAT WERE YOU THINKING? Mk. 14:27-31,66-72 INTRODUCTION A. HUMOR 1. A duck walked into Burger King and walked up to the counter. The crabby assistant manager said, “Can I help you?” The duck said, “Yeah, you got any duck food?” “No we don’t. This is Burger more

    Contributed by Ross Cochrane on Dec 6, 2010
    based on 26 ratings

    Sacrificing a human life is not the point here, as horrific as it is, and as abhorrent to the Lord as it is. I can think of only two or three other valid reasons why God would ask Abraham to sacrifice his only son whom he loved, as a burnt offering, only

    Part 2 - Genesis 22:1-11 - LORD, WHAT WERE YOU THINKING? There’s plenty of evidence of blatant disregard for human life today. Terrorism and suicide bombers? Capital punishment? Human trafficking. Abortion? So what is God thinking when He asks Abraham to take his only son, the son he loves, more

    Contributed by Ross Cochrane on Dec 4, 2010
    based on 11 ratings

    If I am looking for evidence or justification that God is not concerned about me, that He randomly chooses to answer my prayers in totally abstract, dispassionate and sometimes brutal ways, imposing impossible standards upon me, then here it is. OR IS IT?

    Part 1 - Genesis 22:1-11 – GOD, WHAT WERE YOU THINKING? She was ferocious and yet frail. When I told her that I was a Chaplain she took the opportunity to bombard me with accusations and questions. “What is the use of prayer if God is going to let those 29 miners die anyway? All more

    “I DO and I DON’T DO” Romans 7:14-25 We have all heard the question, and probably asked it far too often: “Why did you do that? What were you thinking?” A lot of more

    Contributed by D Marion Clark on Jun 12, 2016
    based on 1 rating

    Contributed by Tom Fuller on Mar 26, 2007
    based on 3 ratings

    Do you ever feel like you are damaged goods and God can’t use you because of your sin and weakness? That may actually be a sly plot of the devil, but God is great about turning your mistakes in His victory as He did for Joshua.

    If you are Joshua, what do you do? Here you’ve come out of the starting gate, primed by God’s miracle in the river crossing, pumped by God’s miraculous defeat at Jericho-then your bubble is popped big time by the fact that you showed some arrogance in thinking you were invincible. Sin entered into more
