The Word

Proverbs 3. 13 – 15

“Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.

“For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver & the gain thereof than fine gold.

“She is more precious than rubies & all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her.”

The supposed “confusion” between the sexes did NOT start when some weird male put on a dress. Its more likely birth was when women (in western cultures) started being less feminine and began appearing in pants. (Some reader will immediately reject this because his wife/daughter wear pants – or the reader herself does, though she was not raised that way. STOP. Think of a better start for the “confusion.”)

TALENT

 

Define this thing called talent.

Describe its dimensions please.

Does it come in large and small sizes?           

Like holes in Swiss-like cheese.

2

God gives to each man one.

But what if He gave him two?

Or three or half a dozen –

Sorting’s a job to do.

3

What if the talents seem to counter?

If they both cannot be done,

Yet both were given by God –

Both have a right to run.

The King James Bible (KJB) and its nearest wannabe

are DIFFERENT.  Period.  Being “different” (though expressed in other terms) appears to be a major reason for new “bibles.” (Reader, please put on your “thinking cap.”) Both cannot be right. Either the KJB or its competitor must be wrong.  To accept a wannabe “bible” is to reject the KJB. Do you honestly (in light of “death, sod and God”) want to stand with a new little “bible” and therefore oppose the Classic English Bible which has blessed more souls in the last 400 (+) years than any? It’s a serious thing to be an enemy to the KJB.  Please do not be.
