Be Ye Doers Premises
What are the premises of "Be Ye Doers" as a website and e-group? What are the presuppositions that we assume as true and work from?
- The Christian Premise of Salvation in Christ. Our beginning place is that we are saved by grace through faith and that the change that makes in us is that we are now responsible for thinking and living by following Christ as Lord.
- That the Christian life in Christ involves growing, developing, and becoming. When we are saved we are not done. There's much more. There is the process of becoming more and more Christ-like in our thinking, emoting, behaving, and relating.
- The "new wine" of Christ's message has to be put into "new wineskins" and so in every culture and age, it is our responsibility to adapt the Christian message and to use new cultural processes for communicating the truth. Culture is always changing; the Christian message as content does not.
- The Scriptures give the principles and truths; it is our responsibility to come up with processes (techniques, technology, means) for effectively transmitting it. That is, the Bible states the what to teach and practice, it is human responsibility to come up with the how.
So the conversations on Be Ye Doers focuses on how we can apply the Christian message using the processes and techniques within NLP and Neuro-Semantics. As ministers trained in these disciplines, we use them for "equipping" the saints and fleshing out how to "renew the mind". If you have questions about this, we recommend that you first read the book, Patterns for Renewing the Mind
