A concerning trend in modern churches

2021.12.05 20:26 lightpinknails A concerning trend in modern churches

The issue I have with modern churches is it seems like they’re focused on getting what they want*.* So it’s about “How can I make God happy so that he’ll bless me and I can get what I want?” I think true Christians sometimes think this way. It shows they want to make God happy, but maybe somewhere along the line they took their eyes off Christ unintentionally and now the reason they want to make God happy is so that they might get this other thing in life they think is so important.
I don’t want to neglect real practical needs people have or undermine them, but I also have heard God telling me in my life: “I am enough for you.” And I remember him telling me that, and I didn’t believe him. It felt insensitive…like how could God be enough when I have all these needs…doesn’t God care about those needs? Doesn’t he realize how I’m hurting? He could just give me those things, instead he just says “I am enough for you.” But now I look back and I’m so thankful he had spoken that to me. I didn’t realize it then, but he was giving me the key to happiness. Additionally, I think of verses like Psalm 23:1: The Lord is my shepherd, I lack NOTHING. But is this true for you? Do you really feel that or do you just say it to sound spiritual?
It is true that God blesses us…but we have to lose our life to gain it. My fear is that many other Christians, like myself, are trying to hold onto their life and they think God wants them to hold onto their life too. And God is also there trying to hold onto their life and if only they would pray more, give more, etc. then they would get to hold onto their life and receive everything they want. But my experience has been the opposite.
My experience has been that while, yes, God has protected me and provided for me, he has also strategically not given me certain things that I’ve really wanted. And in not giving me those things, it caused me to feel really miserable. And I realized that without those things, I just wasn’t happy. In order to overcome my misery, I had to learn how to be happy without them and how to find happiness…the way that God intended me to! Which is not in getting what I want. You see, if God always gave us what we wanted, we would begin to think that happiness only lies in getting things. When in reality, God says that happiness is when we know him and love others, not in getting things for ourselves.
So it just really makes me want to take a step back and re-evaluate some of the sermons I’ve been listening to and the overall trend that a lot of christian leaders are displaying. Some might call this the “prosperity gospel.” But I feel like that term is so overused and it’s not always that obvious. Because like I said, I do believe in prosperity for believers. I believe God wants to bless us, he wants us to live the best life we can live here on this earth…the problem is that our idea of our best life and his idea could be different. Or even if it’s not different, the path to get there may look different than what we assume.
But in summary what I’ve learned is regardless on your views on the prosperity gospel, the focus in our lives can’t be on just getting the things. It has to be on God, and when it’s on God then we will feel satisfied in him. And then the things may or may not come, but at that point we won’t care as much if they do or not, because we are satisfied in God and our eyes are fixed on him.

Anyone know of a good option for conditioning a white/cream bag made out of unfinished leather. I bought a vintage coach bag and I’m worried about darkening the leather.

2021.12.05 20:26 184452681 Can someone explain the refugee situation of Sweden to me? Thanks.

Hi!
So I live in US and I have a Swedish friend over here. He talks about how the refugees from the third world countries are going to cause Sweden a lot of trouble and how Denmark is doing a lot better with letting no refugees. I was reading about this for days and it looks like the crimes in Sweden has gone up a bit. Sweden is still one of the greatest countries in the world but do you think that this situation will effect Sweden worse? Thanks!

2021.12.05 20:26 LeftRat I think my dice macro is impossible, but I'd like to know for sure

Alright, I'm pretty sure what I want isn't possible the way I want it, but since I know jack about the macros, I thought I'd let the fine people of this sub take a look before I write it off.
Playing a hack of Sigmata, which means I want to hit the macro and have it query
"Roll xd10 + yd6, everything over 5 is a success, every 1 is a minus success, count overall successes" where X is the value of the attribute and y is 5-x. Since the attribute value can only be 5 at most, I've done it like this:

?{Name| Att.Val. 1, **4d6 + 1d10** [[4d6>5+1d10>6]] | Att.Val. 2, **3d6 + 2d10** [[3d6>5+2d10>6]] | Att.Val. 3, **2d6 + 3d10** [[2d6>5+3d10>6]] | Att.Val. 4, **1d6 + 4d10** [[1d6>5+4d10>6]] | Att.Val. 5, **5d10** [[5d10>5]] } 
This queries the player "hey, how high is your attribute? alright, let's roll the appropriate dice and count everything over 5 as a success", which is almost what I want, but I can't figure out how to make it so it also counts 1 as a negative success and deducts it from the sum at the end. Is that possible or is that outside of what r20 macros can do?
(and yeah, I get that it's not hyper necessary, hovering over the roll shows you 1s, so you can deduct them by hand, but I'd like it to be as smooth as possible)
