And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.
So a good friend of mine is a christian. Now let me clarify before i ask questions here that i have nothing against your religion or philosophy, in fact i agree with a lot of it. I do disagree with the medium but lets not make that what this thread is about.
So here is what i am to find out. Lets look at the philosophy of changing yourself to change your world and compare them to ideas of faith and allowing god to work in your life.
At what point does you changing your environment become a step away from allowing god to work in your life?
Do you get what im asking or do we need further clarification?

No but i am looking for their perspective,but feel free to add.
25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?

I don't recall the op mentioning debating anything in his op so I don't know what you are on about .And Christianity does not revolve around the Catholic Church . Just so you know .
