“…We desire nothing more than that the glory of God may be advanced,
the benefit of Christ truly known, and
the truth of the gospel purely taught.”
– Martin Luther, from his Commentary on Galatians
Arrows go beyond the shooter and perform his will.
Arrows go where the shooter cannot or will not go.
Arrows go faster than the shooter can go.
– eab, Jun ‘04
 written after Phillip Dickinson mentioned that children are arrows
Some translations are like libel
To the one, true King’s English Bible.
Their presence seems so scholastic,
But they are paraphrases, mere plastic;
As false as they are narrowly tribal.
– eab, 7/28/11
Once a lifetime – the wise men (as far as recorded)
Once a year – Elkanah
Three times a year – men of Israel (three feasts)
Once a week – Jews in OT, Christians in NT on the Lord’s Day
Every day and often in the day – vibrant saints
– eab, Jan. ‘04
Psalms 119. 26 – 27
“I have declared my ways, and thou heardest me: teach me thy statutes.
“Make me to understand the way of thy precepts: so shall I talk of thy wondrous works.”
“There are only three kinds of persons; those who serve God having found Him;
others who are occupied in seeking Him not having found Him;
while the remainder live without seeking Him and without having found Him.
The first are reasonable and happy the last are foolish and unhappy;
those between are unhappy and reasonable.”
– Blaise Pascal, from his Pensees
