When I am in bible study with a group of people and I (desperately) have something say...
I have to wait for other people to stop talking or someone to give me attention and what I think is important (usually) goes unnoticed (or even unheard).
I do not like bible study done that way.
It is like a rush, too many talking at the same time and the time you can talk is uncertain.
Then I thought: Perhaps something like that could be used in bible study.
Oh I see what you are saying. Yes, it can be irresponsible when people spout off whatever occurs to them as if they’re at a party. I agree with you. It wouldn’t be a bad thing to have a little more decorum in Bible studies.
It is real easy for 3 or 4 comments to be made in a hurry, and something to be overlooked. We should try to make every effort to recognize everyone that is part of a Bible Study group.
We had an semi elderly man join us each week for bible study for around 2 years, and he used to constantly interrupt with stories of his experiences in church and so forth.. We persevered with him for maybe a year and I loved that man dearly, but my uncle started coming down hard on him. I would be embarrassed for that man, when he got told off like a child as my uncle was not going to stand for it anymore. My uncle pulled me aside one day and said if he is serious about learning, he should be listening and asking many questions, not constantly disrupting and stopping us from learning. I said I know but could you please go a little gentle? My uncle picked up that the spirit inside this man was not right, and that he was coming only to socialise and stop us from going further. He also told my uncle privately that he was lonely and in love with a Hindu woman who kept asking him for money which my uncle never told me. My uncle was warning him that light does not mix with darkness, and to unequally yoke shows that you love that person more than God. That man never returned to bible studies one day, and there was no goodbye, no thank you, no I won't be attending anymore, no nothing. We were concerned and he wouldn't answer his phone, but found out after some time that he ended up marrying that Hindu lady who I think refused to let him study with us, or he didn't want us to know he'd married her. When teaching you have to discern if the student is serious or there to hinder. If you are teaching for years going over and over even the more basic things, and the student doesn't remember or retain that knowledge by the next lesson, and basically nothing after two years and totally dumbfounded when quizzed, then a bad spirit has been sent to disrupt.
ohhello: We will keep focusing our all on the Lord Christ Jesus.
