    Proverb 26:17 reminds me of a time in the early 1980's when I lived in San Bernardino. One of my older brothers, Gene, was living with me and my first wife at the time. Gene was, and still is a small man. He stood about 5' 6" and maybe weighed about 130 pounds, if he was wearing wet cloths. He was a guy who never could, and never would get in a fight. Jim was an air force mechanic stationed at Norton Air Force base. This was like 10 years before they closed it down. Jim was a big...

    Self Control Set in the context of the whole book of proverbs is, Proverbs 25:28 calls on the imagery of the first nine chapters in which Lady Wisdom and Lady Folly are personified as two alternatives. Whoever has no rule over his own spirit Is like a city broken down, without walls. Among the admonitions against foolishness we learn folly leads to destruction (Proverb 1:32) and the worthless, wicked person will face certain calamity: “Therefore disaster will overtake him in an instant; he will suddenly be destroyed without remedy” (Proverbs 6:15). This is the choice the person without self-control...

    Cornerstone Christian Academy in Alberta, Canada, is being told to stop teaching scriptures that may be considered "offensive." Battle River School Division (BRSD) chair, Lauri Skori, told Cornerstone's chair, Deanna Margel, that "any scripture that could be considered offensive to particular individuals should not be read or studied in school." Skori said it would be inappropriate for the school to share "any teachings that denigrate or vilify someone's sexual orientation." {..snip..}

    Peter tells us that we should always be ready with a response to any question about the reason for our faith. 1 Peter 3:15. Thus the reason Paul told Timothy to be diligent in his studies to rightly divide the truth, 2 Timothy 2:15, because many will come and give false answers just to satisfy the itchy ears of the lost. 2 Timothy 4:1-5. So it is up to us to be prepared to help the lost find the way. If you desire to share the Gospel, and you should, then be sure you are prepared to answer the...

    Proverb 23 (NKJV) In Proverb 20 I wrote about the fact that God does not condemn drinking. Well Proverb 23 has more warnings about the deceptive nature of strong drink. Wine can be abused. It can intoxicate. The wine used by the church at Corinth was real wine - not grape juice. We know this because Paul had to admonish them for being drunk at the Lord's table! (1 Corinthians 11:21). Over and over we are warned in the Scriptures about the consequences of abusing wine. It can lead us astray. Deceive us. Cause us to harm ourselves and...

    UN wants a universal digital ID for your data Humanitarians and tech companies say a digital form of identification would be particularly useful for refugees separated from their personal documents. Maja Vujinovic knows first-hand what it's like to be at a border when you don't have identification. In 1993, her family was escaping Yugoslavia as its sovereignty was crumbling. At one border check, she heard a guard yelling, "So what? They don't exist. You can do with them what you'd like." Because Yugoslavia stopped existing as a nation, countries weren't recognizing the IDs of its onetime citizens, Vujinovic said. Officially,...

    Proverb 22:10 tells us to cast out the scoffer, and contention will leave; Yes, strife and reproach will cease. This refers to those who are bullies in the way they act. Church bullies are common in many churches. They are the wolfs in sheep's clothing who seem to thrive in situations where they can wreak havoc while creating dissension. They typically must have an “enemy” in the church, because they aren’t happy unless they are fighting a battle. They tend to maneuver to get an official leadership position in the church, such as chairman of the elders or deacons...

    Everyone ultimately has to make a decision: will they trust themselves and their understanding or will they trust God and His.  This choice isn't just for unbelievers, but for those who call themselves "Christian", as well.  For very, very soon those who have placed their faith in themselves and their works and abilities will discover whether that was a wise or foolish decision.  As for me, I have nothing to boast or glory in save the Cross of Christ.  I'm staking everything - my life, my soul, and my future on Jesus Christ and Him alone.  I'm taking the...

    Today I am sharing a comment on Proverb 21:30 from Ray comfort. “There is no wisdom nor understanding nor counsel against the LORD.” If I had a worldly hero, it would be Thomas Edison. Atheists claim that he was one of them, but he wasn't. He said, "I believe in the existence of a Supreme Intelligence pervading the Universe." He was ungodly, but he was no fool. Not only was he the ultimate inventor, but he wasn't afraid of failure. He said that failure taught him what not to do. But my greatest admiration for him, was his humility....
  • German Senior Defense Official: ‘In the End, There Will Be a European Army’

    A German senior defense official called for a European Army on Monday. Hans-Peter Bartels, the German national defense commissioner, “called for Nato’s EU members to organise [sic] their militaries into a single force”. This single force would be wholly detrimental to the sovereignty of individual nation-states and would effectively squash any sort of justified or necessary overthrow of an EU member’s governmental system, perhaps it would even inhibit other “–exit”’s.

    Wine is a mocker, strong drink a brawler, and whoever is led astray by it is not wise. Proverb 20:1 (NKJV) Allow me to begin my commentary by stating that it is my belief that God does condone drinking alcoholic beverages. However, as with everything in life, moderation is the key. Now for those who claim God is against drinking I would like to refer you to the wedding where Jesus performed His first miracle by changing the water into wine in John 2:1-12. My point of emphasis in the account is the part where the master of the...

    Nadab and Abihu were the eldest sons of Aaron and along with their father were the first priests to serve in the Tabernacle.  Their story is a terrifying warning to us about God's unbending requirements.  In Leviticus 10 we learn that they brought a "strange fire" before the LORD - in other words, a fire not authorized by God.  As a consequence they were immediately consumed and killed by fire. In like manner, God has authorized only one acceptable sacrifice for us to bring before Him.  God's Word tells us that no one is righteous in His sight (Psalm...

  • Scripture & Tradition of God Vs Tradition of Men Over Scripture

    06/18/2017 10:19:30 PM PDT · by boatbums · 78 replies
    The Catholic church and the various Protestant churches attempt to lure each other into a strange circular argument regarding the doctrinal debate over "Tradition Vs Sola Scriptura" (the bible alone). The Catholic faction gets Protestants arguing against all traditions rather than just the inventions of men; and more specifically, the inventions of the Catholic Church. The argument is really against traditions of men that are not supported by the written word of God.  The Catholics will not regard scripture because they are pushing so hard on the point of traditions that they attempt to prove traditions by traditions, or extrabiblical writings,...

    I found this commentary on Proverb 18:22, written by Z. Hunter of Dear Queens.. I like it, because it comes from a woman's point of view that I cannot begin to consider. SO of offer to you this commentary on; "He Who Finds A Good Wife" You may have heard of that popular scripture before. "He who finds a wife finds a good thing." It has two implications: 1. that the man is to do the finding (and consequently, the pursuing); and 2. that the wife is the good thing. I won't use this space to draft a sermon on...

    WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Lawrence Mykytiuk cannot document that everything in the Bible took place. What the Purdue University Libraries professor can do is show you that many of the people written about did, in fact, exist.“While some would put their hand on the Bible and really mean it when they take an oath, a few revisionist academics would throw it out and say, ‘That’s creative writing.’ I was looking for concrete, objective evidence outside of the Bible that would help build the case,” said Mykytiuk, an associate professor of library science.Mykytiuk (pronounced MICK-ee-took) has added three names to the...

    There have now been rebuttals of the Revelation 12 Sign by Joel Richardson, Danny Faulkner, Tim McHyde, Billy Crone, and now J.L. Robb from Omega Letter.  We've been studying and teaching the Revelation 12 Sign since 2012 and after nearly five years this great sign has weathered every attack that could be thrown at it. We addressed all of the rebuttals, point-by-point (see here, here, here, and here) and what we discovered in the process is that all of the arguments against the #REV12SIGN fall flat.  J.L. Robb's arguments have finally proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that...

    Hostility seems to be a hallmark of this church age in a similar way that political correctness is to the world. It is alright for us to be righteously indignant as long as we do not sin. There is a place for righteous indignation, but God does not permit much anger because it is difficult not to sin when angry. That kind of anger is a "mark of the beast." Frequently, hostility is simply a denial of reality. People do not have tempers born in them; angry tempers begin to be created in childhood. Parents allow tempers to burst...
