2Ti 2.2

2Ti 2. 2

“And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.”

Martin Luther quote

“If I were obliged to leave off preaching and other duties there is no office I would rather have than that of school teacher.”

– Martin Luther – (uncertain of source)

 

Few Men

Few men can balance spirituality and politics. That would be BOTH in the church/denomination and in the statehouse/WDC. Can they be a Christian and deep into politics? Perhaps – (only God knows). Can they be deep into God and His word and have an interest in politics? I believe so, but few can go very deeply into both successfully. Compromise is a key word with political men. It is not a key word with the Holy Trinity.

You can paint your car any color

Preferably one not showing dirt

Your pickup’s color may reveal

If you should wear pants or a skirt.

But only two colors on tractors

Should ever, ever be seen:

Big bright yellow wheels and

A body that’s new-grass green.

“Christian teenagers” – not teens who love Jesus but “christian gown ups” with teenage mentalities.

I once was a teen (sometime after Columbus sailed), I helped raise 4 teenagers, and have taught many a high-schooler. When you tell a teen something they don’t want to hear, they may counter with a technical question. Some have (like a teen) asked, “How long is long?” If a lady leaves her hair uncut she’s safe on the length question. “My hair’s longer than my husband’s so it’s long.” Your false idea taken to a logical end means if his head is shaved you can wear yours one inch.

Please stop being technical with God – Soon.

Prophets and Apostles

2Pe 3. 2

“That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Savior:”

Martin Luther quote

“…this is the proper office of an apostle, to set forth the glory and benefit of Christ.”

– Martin Luther, from his COMMENTARY ON GALATIANS
