Family


Ties


- Fifth Season


By KEES BOER
Entertainment Writer
If you were around
in the 80s, you definitely
remember the show
"Family Ties," with a
fairly liberal-minded
couple, Steven and Elyse
Keaton (Michael Gross


and Meredith Baxter), who
have four very different
children Alex (Michael
J. Fox), Mallory (Justine
Bateman), Jennifer (Tina
Others) and young son
Andrew (Brian Bonsall.)
The most prominent
character is Michael J. Fox
- who plays the character of


Michael Keaton, the young
ambitious Republican
who is obsessed with the
Republican Party. Michael
Keaton's hero is Richard
"Nixon, and his goal in life
is to become independently
wealthy. Underneath
this semi-tough exterior
is a nice, but insecure
young man. His parents
and seemingly everyone
else disagree with. his
obsession, promoting the
message: How can anyone
be a sane person and vote
Republican? That's just for
the selfish greedy people.
His parents understand
life, after all they were
hippies.
You can see that even
though Michael J. Fox is
the star, he's actually the
brunt of all the jokes, thus
there is a huge political
agenda being pushed.
If we are to believe the


show, Republicans are
greedy, unreasonable and
uninformed people, just
like Alex. And just like
Alex, they are people whose
hero was responsible for
Watergate and supported
the Vietnam War. They
are all uneducated; all
they know is how to make
money and, if need be,
cheat to do it.
Does it sound -familiar?
It's the same story being
fed by the media on a
consistent basis, while no
one says anything about
low taxes, free enterprise,
or morals.
But the show is one of
the funniest that 'was ever
produced. It's no wonder
that when the young
Canadian actor joined this
show, he was a virtual
unknown, and living quite
poorly. By the time the
show ended, Michael J. Fox


was one of the biggest
stars in Hollywood,
and had done various
successful films such as -
Back to the Future. The
show also introduced
him to his present day
wife and gave him a
permanent family tie.
Sadly, he suffers from
Parkinson's disease.
The DVD ,et is a
nice one and contains
all 30 episodes of
the fifth hilarious
season. It's an
enjoyable show; just
be aware that there
is a political agenda
behind it. CoP

Burning mouth syndrome


Q: I often have a burning
sensation in my mouth and a
loss of taste. What can I do?
A* You inay' iffer"fromi
a disorder called "burning
mouth syndrdope.",. is
a painful condition that
includes that burning feeling
you describe in the mouth
and lips, as 'well as a loss of
taste' and, a dry mouth. The
condition is more common
in women, especially after
menopause. The condition is
often associated with chronic
anxiety or depression. The
condition can-be brought on
by oral habits like repetitive
tongue thrusting and teeth
grinding, or by a, general
health condition like diabetes,
anemia or, gastro-esophageal
reflux disease. A hormonal


imbalance, nutritional
deficiencies or a yeast
infection in the mouth can
also.caus th .cqrndition.
Typically, patients
may star. thi. djy !with no
symptoms, but see them
increase as the day progresses.
Some studies have pointed to
the dysfunction of several
cranial nerves as ,a possible
cause of "burning mouth
syndrome." Since it is often
difficult to pinpoint the cause.
of the. condition, diagnosis
and treatment may need
collaboration between your
dentist and your general
physician. Any time you sense-
a change of conditions in your
mouth you should see your
dentist for an examination
and advice.

"GMAC was made to

not become restricted, but
according to Greg Waitcus,
general manager and vice
president of Santa Fe Ford,
individuals are still having
trouble getting financed to
buy cars.;
"Ford did not take
any government funds,"
Waitcus said. "They have
ample equity on their own,
and they did not have to
come into the dire situation
that GM did. But now
independent banks have
shriveled up, and they've cut
back on the market 'place.
That has affected people,
and people are not able to
buy or get financing."
And with the
poor economy leaving
consumers wary of buying
new cars without help from
banks, dealerships like
Forrester's and Waitcus's
are left dependingon used-
car sales.
"The used-car business
is,. excellent," Waitcus
said. "People are really
budgeting and buying late-
model used cars. But in'
terms ofprices of used cars,
they have gone up. Demand
goes up, supply goes down
and prices go up as well."
Although Forrester is
still searching for a bank

he said he has been able to

S"We're going to do

Candidates for Mayor

Debbie Campbell
Debbie Campbell, store
manager of Newberry Feed
& Seed, has been living and
working in the city for the
last nine years and is one of
the candidates for mayor.
She has been married for 30
years and has two children.
Campbell describes
herself as an honest and
strong-willed person who
is not easily swayed by
political matters.
"I'm your average
person trying to better the
community," she said. "I
don't want our town to
grow too fast, but I don't
want it not to grow either."
If elected, Campbell
plans to utilize an open-
door policy in which the
commission listens to the
concerns of the people of
Newberry, she said. She
also plans to work through
problems until they are
resolved.
Campbell said her main
concerns are a proposed
bypass on State Road 26,
which she said. will "kill
downtown," and the recent
dilemma of steep electric
bills in the city.
"This is an important
job, and I will do my best
for the people of the city of
Newberry," she said. '

John Glanzer
John Glanzer has been
Newberry's. mayor since
2004. Glanzer has lived
in Newberrv since 1975
"and ,served :on the city
commission from 1983 until
2000. He has been married
for 30 years and raised his
children in the city. ;
"I think one of my
strong points is that I try
to work with citizens, the
Commission and staff on
finding comnion goals,' he
said.
Glanzer echoed
Campbell's concerns,
saying his main focus
throughout the end of his
term and during his next
term if re-elected are the
city's utility rates and the
S.R. 26 traffic situation.
Though he said there is
not much the Commission
can do about the cost -of
electricity, Glanzer plans
to analyze different ways
of billing and come up with
more creative ways to pay
bills, such as having two
due dates on which citizens
must pay 50 percent of their
bills.
As traffic continues to
increase, Glanzer plans
to look at ways to funnel
cars through and around
downtown without creating
a gridlock.
Glanzer also wants
to focus his energy on
the water and sewer
plant expansion, which
could mark an increase in
business opportunities for
Newberry.

Barry L. Green Sr.
Barry L. Green, another
candidate for the mayor
position, said his main
platform is to listen to the
citizens of Newberry.
"My platform is
basically for the people,"
he said. "That's it. I'm not
following the normal flow
of things."

HOME INVASION:
Continued from page Al

Police-style car seen in area

before incident


home at 25439 SW 2nd Avenue,
said ACSO spokesman Art
Forgey.
The four robbers were
described as being young, black
males between 5-foot-9-inches
and 5-foot-10-inches with slender
builds. They were wearing black
ski masks and dark clothing, and
one of the men had a gun, Forgey
said.
The men told the resident and
his female friend to lie down on
the kitchen floor, and the robbers
demanded cash and valuables,
but the resident told the men he
did not have a safe or cash in the
house, so they took the man's cell
phone and wallet instead.
When the resident moved too
much, the robber with the gun
shot a bullet into the floor, Forgey
said.
* After the gun was shot,
the intruders talked among
themselves, and the other three
men told the shooter 'Why did
you do that? We didn't come here
for that," Fqrgey said.


The robbers ordered the
couple to stapd up to check for
any injuries, but when no injuries
were found, the couple was forced
to get back down on the floor, he
said.
The four men eventually fled
on foot with a computer and
jewelry from the room of the
homeowner's daughter, who was
not home during the incident,
Forgey said.
Witnesses told deputies that a
suspicious police-style white car
was in the area shortly before the
robbery.
Deputies found some of the
contents of the victim's wallet on
the ground in Newberry, and they
continue to follow new leads,'
Forgey said.
Anyone with information
about the robbery is asked to call
Crime Stoppers at 372-STOP to
receive a $1,000 reward, or call
the Sheriff's Office at 352-955-
1818.


CHARTER:
Continued from page Al

Amendments to be on April 14 ballot


being decided in the upcoming
election.
The session will be Thursday,
April 2 at 6 p.m. in Alachua's
commission chambers. Anyone
interested in learning more about
the proposed amendments to the
City's charter is encouraged to
attend. The session will provide
an opportunity for obtaining
specific information and asking
questions about the proposed
changes to the charter.
The amendments will appear
on the ballot in the City of
Alachua's April 14 election.
Amendment 1: The
commission. currently rotates
each of the five members to hold
the position of mayor. With the
proposed change, the voters
would elect the mayor.
Amendment 2: The
amendment would allow the
commission to waive the
provision that currently prohibits
an. elected City official from
holding any compensated
appointed office or becoming a
City employee until one year after


he or she is no longer serving as
an elected official.
Amendment 3: The City
Commission currently meets
every two weeks; the proposal
would keep the meetings regular,
but give the commissioners the
autonomy to change dates of
meetings in the face of unforeseen
circumstances.
Amendment 4: The Charter
currently requires the City
Manager to be a resident within
six months of appointment; the
amendment would allow the
Commission to agree in writing
to allow the City Manager to
reside outside of city limits.
Amendment 5: Provides that
a symbol or any other method
prescribed by law shall be used
to vote either for or against
an amendment to the charter.
Charter currently stipulates that
an "X" designate a vote, but the
city uses a bubble on a Scantron
to designate a vote. Amendment
would resolve the conflict and
allow any type of symbol the city
chooses to designate a vote.


Amendment 6: Would
allow the City Commission to
appoint a Canvassing Board
for city elections, whose duties,
responsibilities and procedures
shall be as set by applicable law
and city ordinances.
Amendment 7: Provides that
the Planning and Zoning, Board
meetings shall be at times and'
places as prescribed by law and
as may be directed by the City
Commission.
Amendment 8: Currently,
the Charter provides that the
Planning and Zoning Board will
prepare plans and maps for the
systematic future development
and betterment of the city. The
amendment would stipulate that
The Planning and Zoning Board
will act in accordance with
applicable law and directed by
the City Commission.
More details about the
amendments can be found on
the City of Alachua website at
cityofalachua.com.


To the Citizens of this Great Community


First and foremost, I would like to thank you for allowing me
to serve, for which I am. most humbled. I am submitting my
resignation, effective November 1,2010. I do it with a bittersweet
regret, because.these years serving as your manager have been the
most'productive and satisfying of my entire life. While I may
be retiring from the City I may become further involved in the
realm of public service at other levels, which will bring more
challenges to address. The challenges will be new and different,
as they were when I was first appointed City Manager, but I know
I will take them on with the verve and passion I bring to the City.
I envision having a replacement on board by February of 2010,
which would enable the City to enjoy an orderly and productive
transition period.

I would be consulting with the new manager on a daily basis -
sometimes, other times a few hours as needed to make certain
that the City and the Administration would best benefit from this
exchange of knowledge and sharing of direction and philosophy.
I would liken this transitional role for myself as;one of being on
sabbatical, but being present to hand over the managerial reins in
good form, so that there is no break in the excellent management
this City deserves. We are all too aware of the results that spring
from a disorgimized and chaotic situation--multiple managers
lured too quickly and replaced just as pvwiftly. No continuity or
progress ran..be, hieved under those 'pressgures.

In the next few weeks, I will be making a full report to the
,Commission as a whole, and to each individual Commissioner,
as well as keeping the citizens informed throughout this process.
This report will detail the transition process, the options available
and further details. This report will include accomplishments in
place, those in process, those that have been initiated and some
:that need to be initiated. This will enable the new manager and
-any new Comnlissioner to have a full grasp of the status of the
City. It will also outline my futureactions and my intent regarding
.my position with the City. What 'it does not address is the
*underlying reasons that H leave with a deep sense of satisfaction,
.accomplishment and thankfulness. Before I go further, I want
:to give a heartfelt thanks to my father, Clovis Watson, Sr., my
-mother, Veronia Watson, my siblings, the mother of my children
and my children for their unending support and love. *

I have been greatly blessed by Commissions filled with true lovers
of the community and true public servants; citizens who have
expended considerable time and effort on behalf of improving
.the community because they truly love it. Such commissioners
have made my labor of love these past 7 years so much easier to
implement because they have been, and certainly are, intelligent,
committed and dedicated people, willing to listen to my thoughts,
,give me necessary guidance and provide the indispensable
support when we attempted to bring about the major changes we,
have wrought in Alachua.

And those 'five commissioners, who were different at times
throughout my tenure as City Manager, five of many throughout
the years who have shaped this community, but the present five in
.place that I often call my commissioners: Mayor Jean Calderwood,
,Vice-Mayor Bonnie -Burgess, Commissioner Gib Coerper,
Commissioner Oriep Hills and Commissioner James Lewis. We
'have worked in concert toward a single goal-making Alachua
'the best city in the state, without sacrificing the atmosphere,
.amenities, attractions and ambiance we all treasure. I thank you
.for making my service so pleasurable and so productive., The
entire community owes you a great debt of gratitude, but I know
you will never demand payment of that debt. because of your love
,for and dedication to Alachua.

I want to thank the:Commission for this wonderful opportunity.
From my modest, beginnings in the housing projects to the
.administrative leadership of this City has been a humbling and
intensely rewarding journey. It is a journey I set the course for
many yearsago, but for it to be realized as fully as it has been is
"quite remarkable, and quite fulfilling. The City has made me and
I am happy and proud to have had a small part in building it to its
present prominence and stability.

*3Over the years, I have been blessed with commissioners such as
SJanes Lewis, Orien Hills, Bonnie Burgess, Gib Coerper and Jean
:Calderwood.

Gib brought with him a concern for the environment and the pace
of growth, but was never dismissive of needed improvements and
developments, when they made the type of fiscal and planning
sense that we were able to forge together. His viewpoint was
always well thought out with great deliberation and concern for
the community. Ithank him for this business-like approach in his
role, and to the unstinting support he gave me in representing the
City in its best light

Orien Hills is a dear friend who has known me since I was a small
boy in Merrillwood, and has been much like a family member and
father figure. Along the way, he mentored me as well as others
who had more than mischief on our minds--giving without
reservation of his experience, wisdom and considerable humor.
He was, along with my parents and others in the community, the.
major gateway for me to achieve so much more than is usually
expected from those bom in the projects. I am indebted to him
for giving me a hand up, and helping gently urge me on a path
of excellence, not excess. That is why I am.thrilled to have.
been able to pay him back by doing my utmost best as his City.
Manager, bringing before him only those considerations that were
right for the City. He could depend on me to reject the easy path


for the rigbi path, because he was instrumental in setting me on and integrity in every action she has taken on behalf of the City, in
that path. private and public arenas. My efforts would never have had such
us ccess without her indispensable understanding .


And James, dear James Lewis, who devoted more than half
of his 82 years to the service of this community. Who was the
steward over those decades of recognizing and addressing the
infrastructure and programs the City needed to progress beyond
the sleepy, one-light town that could be whipsawed by the closing
of a single business.' A man who created an atmosphere of
opportunity and industriousness that enabled all who wished, to
become as much' as they could, and to achieve as much as. they
could. I watched him over the years, as our families have a long
and cordial history: What I observed was a man who knew what
was needed and, equally important, knew how to get it done. His
dedication, involvement and passion for the community were
instilled in me from an early age, and I have developed those
traits in myself with his encouragement and support. I have
also employed them for the good of the community, as did he so
selflessly these 42 years. That James has suffered the tragic loss
of his lifelong love and wife, the rock of his life and the excellent
mother to his children saddens me to my core. I weep for him
because I love the man as much as I love his deeds and his life's
work. They were a rock to me, and I once again send him my
deepest condolences, and my everlasting thanks for helping me
achieve as much as I have as his manager.

James voted against me when I was appointed, Mnot for lack of
respect, but for the belief that someone with more experience
was needed. It has been many years since he told me, "Partner, I
sure was wrong." [Iappreciated that more than he knew, but I did
repay that by striving to the best of my abilities to continue his
legacy with the City. And he has been my staunchest supporter'
over my term.

I expected nothing less from Bonnie Burgess than what she has
given me and the City during her long years of civic service.. She
comes, from a long line of community benefactors, educators and
mentors, and has translated that lineage into an exemplary record
of service to organizations, individuals and the community at large.
She presided over the Commission during the most acrimonious,
partisan and mean-spirited time this community has ever suffered
and,she was able to hold together a consensus of commissioners
and citizens determined to forge beyond such divisiveness 'and
conduct the business of the City.with reason and sanity. Her efforts
to bring me on board and her support during those tumultuous
times helped to temper my resolve to.achieve that which the
City wanted and needed and reject that which was detrimental to
Alachua. If she did not have a thick skin before those days, she
certainly developed one, along with the resolve to keep the ship
righted and sailing a true course. She is one tough lady, while
remaining one of the most giving and compassionate people we
are fortunate to have.

And Mayor Calderwood---e rock, the Iron Lady, the iron fist
in the velvet glove. What can I say about Jean Calderwood? I
can say that we have had a mutually beneficial relationship for
many years, years that have given us both a. joy and a sense
of comradeship because of our regard for one another and for
the like-mindedness of our dreams for the City. Jean, if I may
address her, started poor, as did I. She had her share of struggles
and disappointments, as did I. She fought for everything she ever
achieved, as did I. She loves this community, as do I. Without
her able leadership over the past years, dissident elements would
have been successful in thwarting the normal workings of the
City, and would have brought the business of the community to
a halt. Her sternness in dealing with these parties has presented
them with failure after failure, and kept the City rock-solid on its
mission of improvement and toward self-sustainability.

Her able guidance ofthe Commission has enabled us to deliberate a
wide and varied catalog of issues, putting into place many of the
policies that will continue to shape this City in a positive way for
decades to come. While a patrolman, I wrote her a traffic ticket;
she accepted it with the grace inherent in her, without trying to
make excuses or deflect blame. She has used that same honesty


I cannot take my leave without placing a large amount of credit
on the staff I have had about me for most of my tenure. I have
always believed that a good manager absolutely must find the best,
most intelligent and dedicated staff he can, and retain them for the
value andcontinuity of excellence they bring to the process. I
have stated many times that I have the best staff in the state of
Florida, top to bottom. Without their effort, input and abilities,
I would have had to labor much harder just to achieve a fraction
of what has been done over the years. They do a marvelous job
for the community, working at top efficiency, and have been able
to accomplish much without relying on excess personnel to do
so. I truly think that each and every one of them would excel in
any position assigned to them or in any endeavor in life. They
are great people, and I am fortunate to have-had their services
for so long.

, .I will always be here for the City that has been my life for 50
years, whether as a citizen, a consultant, a volunteer or any other
role. Whatever that role may be, you can rest assured that I will
ute it for the betterment of the community. This community is as
much a part of me as the beat of my heart, and I can never truly
leave it. Through three decades, I have given it my all because
it gave me life, opportunity, support, hope and great pleasure. I
may eventually go outside the physical boundaries of Alachua,
but, no matter which of the many avenues I choose to pursue, it
will ultimately be to the benefit of this community, because we
can never stop giving back.

My entire career with the City-from officer to Sergeant to
Deputy Chief and ultimately to City Manager-was helped along
by the good wishes and support of wide swaths of the community.
I realized that they were sincere in their dealings with me, just as
I was in my dealings with them. I cannot claim to have had no
detractors,,no critics, because it is impossible to.be in public life
without attracting all manner of people and personalities. But
from beginning to end, I treated all with an even-handedness that
I truly believe everyone deserves.

Certainly there have been very vocal and persistent critics of
my actions, but I can assure you that, not only did I learn from
them, I also respected their point of view, even as I worked
diligently for the opposite outcome they desired. One need not
feel anger or hatred toward another who is stating his position; it
is counterproductive and likely to lead to increased tension. At
the end of the day, when the struggle is ended, people with deeply
held beliefs should be able to shake hands and thank the other
for a battle well waged. My fort was in defusing tensions and
working to bring about a consensus from the multitude of views.
I think I have been successful in that regard.

For those ofyou who have supported me all along, I salute you and
thank you for standing by me; for those of you who have opposed
me, I salute you and thank you for adding to my experience in
dealing with highly contested issues. I bear no ill-will toward
anyone. I am a man of strong beliefs and a man who will always
take the right path,' and never the easy path if it is not the correct
one in my judgment. Those who know me will realize that is one
thing.I will never change, whatever the pressures that might be
brought to bear. It is who I am.

I know that I will take my leave with the City in good shape and in
good hands as long as the type of people I have described above
continue to devote a great portion of their lives to making such
dreams come true. It has been a privilege; it has been a pleasure;
it has been profoundly satisfying serving Alachua as its City
Manager. Thank you for your support, and thank you for making
me the person I have become.

Clovis Witson, Jr.
City Manager

Seeking to understand God's discipline Part II


In our last article we
sought to address two
questions. Does God still
discipline His children?
Why does God's discipline
seem so indiscriminant?
In order to answer
those two questions we
sought' to resolve four
things; 1) Understanding
the individual; 2)
Understanding the battle;
3) What is
-discipline?
4) How does
God operate?
Our quest
narrowed the
group we are
looking at to
those who are
born-again
and living in
rebellion. Our
questrevealed REV. LEO
that God's TRAI
discipline of New Life C
born-again Chape
believers is
corrective and restorative
nature and that His
discipline will not always
look the same.
Now we will turn to
Scripture for three examples
of God's discipline in action
as recorded in the New
Testament.
The Prodigal Son (Luke
15:11-32): In this account
we see that the father let his"


ON

,ail


son go. He did not chase
after him nor did he offer
any help or protection.
The father waited patiently
for the son to return.- His
son was involved in "wild
living" (Luke 15:13).
During this time the father
did nothing but wait
patiently forthe sonto return
home, and return home he
did. He returned home a
different ,man
than when he
left. Sometimes
God uses time
as a form of
discipline. He
knows the end
result and lets
us go. God does
not condone, nor
does He bless
us when we are,
ARD R. in rebellion. He
4IA also never stops
rnmunity loving us. Here
nesville .
is an answer
to a question


that often comes up. Does
God love the disobedient
(rebellious)? Yes, but
due to their rebellion and
withdrawal from Him they
will not experience His love
active in their life. They can
knowHe loves them. That is
different from experiencing
His love active in our life. '
Immoral Believer (1
Cor. 5:1-5; 2 Cor.. 2:5-8):


Here we have one who is
a believer. He is living in
full blown rebellion. God
knows that time alone will
not work in this case. Here
He says to hand this man
over to Satan. This means
that God and His people are
pulling back from this man.
Any shelter or blessing has
been removed. He now exits
fully exposed to the power
of Satan. I think, like Job
(though Job was righteous),
God still puts restrictions on
Satan regarding this man.
We read in 2 Corinthians
2 of a man being restored
and most agree that it is
referring to this man in
1 Corinthians. A season
under the power of Satan
performed the corrective
work that God sought in the
man's life.
Ananias and Sapphira
(Acts 5): Here is an
, interesting story that needs
a little background. They
had promised to give all
df the money received,
not just some. If they had
only promised some of
the proceeds they would
not have been, guilty of
rebellion. Their plan was,
premeditated. They made
the offer, sold the land and
stood their ground. I am
sure that they experienced
conviction from the moment


they knew that they were
going to withhold* some
of the money. Regarding*
their salvation, they were
either believers or such
great liars that they fooled
the apostles. I believe that
they were believers. Here
we find a strange event for
the N.T., but not strange to
God. He gives each one a
last chance to come clean.
Instead they stay the course
and God takes them out of
this world. What does that
mean? God sees in them no
hope, of responding to any
corrective action and takes


their physical life from
them. If they are believers,
then that means they went
home to be with the Lord:
God separated them from
the sinful flesh rather
than leaving them. in this
agonizing state. He .called
them home.
Thus we have three
examples of God' using
three various types of
discipline. To recap, they
are 1) Time; 2) Turning
one over 'to Satan; 3)
Removing the person. I
believe that God works on
us individually according


to our need and make-up.
We need never believe that
God is neither unaware
nor inactive, for even in
waiting He is active. Let's
not limit God to these three.
He knows how to handle
each of us and deals with
us individually., Hebrews
12:1-11 give us a positive
understanding of God's
disciplining His children,
and he does so because He
loves us.

Funding for the program
is provided through a grant
by Florida's Office of the
Attorney General with

Unit was awarded a VOCA
grant, in the amount of
$107,079.

B2 ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY RELIGION THURSDAY, MARCH 19, 2009


Seeking to understand God's discipline


Does God still
discipline His children?
Why does God's
discipline seem so
indiscriminant? Before we
look at God's discipline
we need to resolve four
things. 1) Understanding
the individual. 2)
Understanding the battle.
3) What is discipline? 4)
How does God operate?
Understanding the
Individual: Within any
church or group of people


that gather in the
name of Jesus
we will find
three types of
people. We will
find people who
know that they
are not saved,
but are seeking
something
from the group.
Hopefully they
are seeking
Jesus. We also
have those who
are truly born-


REV. LEC
TRA
New Life C
Chapel, G


again. Lastly there are
those who think they have
salvation, or are acting as
if they have, but do not.
Many o,pf these in the last
group show well and do.
what appears to be good. I
list this only because there
are people that can fool us.


for a long time and when
they go astray we wonder
where God is in their lives.
He is absent, because He,
never was there. I need
to point this out, -but.
these are not the ones
that the original question
is focused upon. We are
focused on the truly born-
again. This number is very
limited even when we look
into a church gathering;
unfortunate, but true.
Understanding the
Battle: When
we think of
people going
through their
struggles
and wonder
where the
discipline is,
we need to
differentiate
between n
)NARD R. rebellion
UNA and failure.
community Many people
;ainesville I -know hate
the sin that
continues to ensnare


them. They experience
conviction every time
they fail and it tears them
up. They want to succeed
and be, faithful, but fail
again. They experience a
Romans 6-7 rollercoaster
battle. Part of the problem


may be that they never
experience Romans 8
power (sanctification),
but that is another subject.
God does not need to
discipline these people
beyond the conviction
they experience. They are
experiencing conviction
and respond to their sin in
confession and repentance
.(1 John 1:9). God the
Father picks them up,
dusts them off and steps
back as a Father watching
a child try to learn to
walk. Some children get
it pretty quick and start
strolling, some fall down
many times before they
take off, but God is ever
present and ever patient.
The other group,. those in
rebellion, is another story.
They know their sin, reject
the conviction and choose
to follow their will over
God's. This is the group
we will look at.
What is discipline?
Too often we think of
discipline as punishment,
when in reality it is about
bending one in a manner
to bring into alignment
with a particular rule,
lifestyle, etc. Discipline
may have some form
of action attached that
appears as punishment,


but God does not condemn
the born-again (Romans
8:1). His goal with
'His children is always
corrective, not punitive.
His goal is restoration,
not condemnation. He
condemns the action of
the born-again, but not the
person.
How does Godoperate?
Who truly knows the mind
of God (Isa. 40:28)? Who
of us can counsel Him
(Isa. 40:13)? We have to
trust that He knows what
is best in every situation;
thus He may not discipline
two people the same way


I


who commit the same sin.
Why not? He is looking
for corrective action, a
way to restore the person.
He looks at each and
knows what it will take
for that individual. Here is
an example from my life.
I have three kids. All three
are as different as they
can be.. The way we dealt
with them" was always
fair and in love, but the
actions taken to discipline
them often looked greatly-
different. To the world we
would have looked like we
favored one over another,
but in reality we were


- Part 1

operating with knowledge'
of what will bring
correction and restoration
in each of their lives. I
think this happens whef .'-.
we look at God and how' ,-"'
He operates. Therefore,';
I have to trust that He is: .
God, He is always right'"-
and whatever action He: -':
chooses is the right on," ',
for that person.. "
' In part II, we will look
at three biblical examples
of God's discipline in
action as recorded in the
New Testament.
