I think the parable of the talents is a good example of ambition vs. contentment. God gives us our nourishment, our hydration and clothes. He even gives us the faith we have 'so that nobody can claim the credit.' Ep 2:9

'When someone is given a great deal, a great deal will be demanded of that person; when someone is entrusted with a great deal, of that person even more will be expected.' Lk 12:48

In that sense, we should be ambitious perhaps, to use our gifts, whether that means evangelising, teaching, healing or whatever. We need to work out what God wants us to do with us (and the gifts we have received). See Ep 5:10;17.

Imagine if one of the servants who received their talents then thought I'm content with the five talents my master has given me, I shall keep it as a memento of my master's trust in me.

I reckon he'd likely receive a similar rebuke to the servant who hid his talent.

"You wicked and lazy servant!...For to everyone who has will be given more, and he will have more than enough; but anyone who has not, will be deprived even of what he has." Mt 25:26;29

Because he has not used his talent/faith/gift for the benefit of others. Instead he keeps it as a source of boasting.

"For you see, if the Hebrew in modern bibles is not the original, then we must throw out the Old Testament, which is the bulk of the bible and one of the two witnesses."

I don't know who the "we" are when you say "we must throw out the Old Testament" but speaking for myself, I absolutely would not throw out the Old Testament even if it were shown that the Hebrew language that produced our bibles was not the original.. I don't know what kind of "faith" or what kind of spirit inside you would tell you that you must throw out the Bible based on anything .. if it was proven that the Bible was originally written in mandarin, or Swahili I'd still see the scriptures as true. Even if it came to light that we are all living in a virtual reality simulation and the fabric of our reality is turned upside down.. still the scriptures are true.

Thanks Rhys. I'm glad that you were encouraged from my sharing. Thanks Marquette. Good to know someone who is also ex Assemblies of God. I sat under my late Father in law's ministry for about thirty years, who was an Assembles of God Pastor. yes I can agree with you in that it is only God that can draw someone to the truth. We can get them to read 1 Tim 4:10 and 1 John 4:14 a hundred times and it will mean nothing to them, unless God opens their spiritual eyes.

Nice to have you Kenny;

The first hook in the mouth that brought me to the website was Ray's teaching on tithing.  I was Assemblies of God and of course money and the tithe was of utmost importance.  I wanted to argue with what Ray wrote but I couldn't.  I thought that Ray was a blind squirrel that stumbled upon a nut as I thought him to be a heretic that taught against hell and the Trinity, ect. 

Little by little God used the teachings to 'relearn' a whole lot of things and I no longer have to argue with people to get them to see the 'truth'.  Fact of the matter is I couldn't see any truth unless and until God was ready to reveal it to me and nobody else will either.  On the various forums I'm on I use a tagline point back to the LOF teachings and figure that God will draw whom he will draw.  Being steeped in Christianity with it's lifetime of deceptions it's like an onion being removed one layer at a time all in God's timing and plan.

Once you learn the truth of these matters a tremendous weight and burden are removed from off of you.  Jesus Christ the savior of the world who will save the world in his way and in his time.  It's all good.

Welcome again!!
