Dr Viju -2-Paradigm

  1. 1. Paradigm
  2. 2. What is the age?
  3. 3. What do you see?
  4. 4. Principles Assumptions Behaviors AttitudesBeliefs Values HEART MIND HAND FEEL (INPUT) THINK (PROCESS) BEHAVE(OUTPUT)
  5. 5. Noisy kids and the father… Change in the paradigm changes our assumptions, behavior and attitude..
  6. 6. Luke 5:36, 37 New cloth, new wine skin Colosians3:10 Put on the new self…..
  7. 7. Its all in the mind…
  8. 8. Romans 12:1,2… Do not conform to the patterns of the world but be transformed by the renewal of the mind Ephesians 4:22,23 be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.
  9. 9. Luke 7: 36-50 …’sinful’ woman, Simon the Pharisee and Jesus Paradigm change for Simon – judgmental to response in love
  10. 10. Paradigm paralysis….
  11. 11. 1.Be saved and forget it .. In Philippians 2:12-13, Paul writes, “Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed – not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence – continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his purpose
  12. 12. 2. No in-depth Bible study/ teaching Hebrews 5:11-13 We have much to say about this, but it is hard to explain, because you are dull of hearing.Although by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to reteach you the basic principles of God’s word. You need milk, notsolid food! Everyone who lives on milk is still an infant, inexperienced in the message of righteousness
  13. 13. 3. Pet theology For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. 2Tim 4:3
  14. 14. 4. Absence of practical Christianity If you claim to be religious but don’t control your tongue, you are fooling yourself, and your religion is worthless. Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.
  15. 15. 5. Confused with their on strength Proverbs 3:5,6 Trust in the LORD with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes;
  16. 16. Peter needed to get out of the Paradigm Paralysis Acts 10:28,29 He said to them: “You are well aware that it is against our law for a Jew to associate with or visit a Gentile. But God has shown me that I should not call anyone impure or unclean. So when I was sent for, I came without raising any objection. May I ask why you sent for me?”
  17. 17. Stuck…not going anywhere..
  18. 18. John Stott “ Radicle Disciple” Over against the challenge of pluralism, we are to be a community of truth, standing up for the uniqueness of Jesus Christ. Over against the challenge of materialism, we are to be a community of simplicity and pilgrimage. Over against the challenge of relativism, we are to be a community of obedience. Over against the challenge of narcissism, we are to be a community of love.
  19. 19. • We are not to be like reeds shaken by the wind, bowing down before gusts of public opinion, but as immovable as rocks in a mountain stream. • We are not to be like fish floating with the stream (for “only dead fish swim with the current,” as Malcolm Muggeridge put it), but to swim against the stream, even against the cultural mainstream. • We are not to be like chameleons, lizards that change their color according to their surroundings, but to stand out visibly against our surroundings.
