1Co 12.15-18

“If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?

“And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?

“If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling?

“But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.”

Are you worldly? You will not be worldly long.

Either we voluntarily give up the world for God (wonderful exchange!) OR the world will slip from our dying fingers.

Remember, “…the world passeth away and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever” 1Jo 2.17.

The devil has a bid, for every preacher’s kid

To tease, to trip, to trap.

His trap is carefully made, “innocently” overlaid

To spring, to seize, to snap.

“Reject your dad’s old ways; these are modern days”

“Be fun, be full, be free.”

Before the last “rock” is sung, before the snare is sprung –

Oh see! Oh hear!  Oh flee!

Dumbed Down?

Technical language is used in

Astronomy, Biology, Cooking, Dentistry, Etymology, Forestry, Geology, History, Internet, Jewelry, Kinetics, Law, Mathematics, Nutrition, Oncology, Paleontology, Quilting, Rappelling, Syriology, Teaching, Urology, Veterinary medicine, Woodworking, Yachting, and Zionism and YOU want God’s Word “dumbed” down?

(None of the above alone or combined equal the importance of the Bible.)  Omitting three and four syllables words because they sound/ look “technical” is an insult to God and to His prophets, penmen, and poets across the OT/ NT centuries.
