The poor LCG member just can never get it right. Apparently some LCG members are "hardening their hearts" and are no longer teachable. In other words, if you dare question anything you have a bad attitude and have hardened your heart against the "truth" relayed to church members. Why can't church leaders ever write anything positive for their member? Perhaps talk about Jesus...though I know that is a big stretch. When he is talked it is by making church member feel guilty about crucifying him.
Are You Teachable? The Scriptures reveal that an important quality of character that God is looking for in Christians and future leaders in His Kingdom is teachability—the desire and willingness to listen and learn. Abraham was teachable and responsive to God’s instructions (Genesis 12:1-4). Moses was a very capable leader, yet he was also humble and teachable (Numbers 12:3). David’s attitude comes through in Psalm 119:33 when he writes “Teach me, O LORD, the way of your statutes.” Solomon recognized his human inadequacies when he asked God for wisdom and an “understanding heart,” so that he could learn to rule God’s people wisely (1 Kings 3:9). When Jesus said the meek and the poor in spirit are blessed, He was emphasizing their teachability and their willingness to learn and grow (Matthew 5:3-5). The Scriptures also reveal that when we harden our hearts to God’s instruction, we will reap serious consequences (Proverbs 28:14). We have been called to reign with Jesus Christ in the coming Kingdom of God—and being teachable is one of the keys to attaining that reward. Let’s strive to develop this most important quality.Have a profitable Sabbath,Douglas S. Winnail
