SPIRITUAL BAROMETER:  Where to go in your Bible
Study Based on your 1.0 to 4.0 Spiritual Barometer!


Where do you find yourself on the spiritual barometer
below in order to know where to read and study on the
SunGrist_Bible website?  Just like when you are rated as
a tennis player from 1.0 to 4.0, it may not be what you
think and it may not be flattering, and sometimes it could
even be wrong, yet you are stuck with it; and it may even
be helpful if used for improvement.


0.5    You are not such a bad person, and surely God in
the Judgment will consider that!  {You should read SOME
SOUNDS OF SOUND FAITH.  And you really need to pray
in the
Chapel at Large.}

1.0    You believe in God and the Bible.  (You should read
A CUP OF WATER, a condensed version of Mark with
comments.}

1.5     You attend a local church, give, and listen to the
messages.  {You should read and study the
LEARN
CHRIST FROM THE APOSTLES AND PROPHETS 5
volume set of commentaries, of course starting slowly with
the reading of one of them.}

2.0        Average Church member, considering the man-
made organization or denomination as religion, and like
most Southern Baptists thinking that the major doctrines of
the Bible are:  attend, give, read a few verses in your
Bible, study a very limited lesson, etc.  You are ignoring
the Falling Away completely because you do not hear
about it from your pulpits or in those limited lessons.  
{What you need to read and study are
SNATCHING,
STUMBLING, AND THE FALLING AWAY or WHAT THE
CHURCHES DON’T WANT YOU TO HEAR!}  Also, please
read
A Page on Doctrine.

2.5     You have the sentimentality without any personal
sacrifice of “What A Friend We Have in Jesus”, turning
during crisis to an untested real friendship with Jesus and
God.  You also believe in the False Gospel of Prosperity.  
(You should read about
Chastisement in Friends of Jesus.)

3.0     Your complete confidence {you might call it faith
except it is misplaced} is in your denomination and local
church without any real conviction on the kingdom of Christ
and the church of the Firstborn written in heaven.  You
should read "Confusion in the Congregation" in
FRIENDS
and "12 Guidelines to Eliminate Confusion".

3.5     You are depending for salvation on the Security of
the Believer, or a false second blessing in that you have
learned to speak in unknown tongues, without ever really
learning the messages of I and II Corinthians {why should
you as you are having too much fun getting all excited for
30 minutes on Sunday ten forgetting about it the rest of the
week}, or without seeing that the Parable of the Seed and
the Sower can easily reconcile the Security of the Believer
with the Falling Away, and indeed you have never faced up
to the real One Baptism of the Bible as salvation.  Why
don't you get more serious about these matters and study
the 14 epistles of Paul in
BELIEVE AND BE BAPTIZED, or
try a new approach to Bible study in the
MAGIC OUTLINE.

4.0        Spiritually mature, ready to dig into any meat of
the Word of God.  {You need to read and study
FRIENDS
OF JESUS IN THIS AGE OF BIBLE AND COMPUTER,
and join the effort to be called by Jesus a Friend.}
