Uncle S

You have a favorite uncle (for now I’ll call him “Uncle S”). As a kid you loved his stories of adventure, exploring when young, admired him telling of fights he’d won. As you matured you loved him but also saw he wasn’t a 100% truthful, had bad habits, misused money. The day came you met Christ. Now “Uncle S” was seen in a new light. Loved him? More than ever but now you saw what a bad guy he was and needed to change. Christians – don’t love “Uncle Sam” so much you approve of all the fights(wars) he’s been in or his money problems or… You can love America (I truly do) but not love War upon War. Pray for USA.

God 0R mammon ?

Mat 6. 24

“No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other;

or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.”

>> What is there about “cannot” that YOU cannot understand?” <<

Preach – Invite

  1. Preach against – SINS – use one of more sin lists in NT use definitions

Invite to walk – in white, above sin, “Go and sin no more.”

  1. Preach against – Carnality – use Bible & perhaps Warren C McIntire with handouts

Invite to walk – with holy heart – pure motives

  1. Preach against – Stuck-in-rut, or No-growth, “profession-without-possession holiness.”

Invite to walk – growing not into but After “full salvation.”

  1. Preach against – Materialism, sports, wasting time, thinking too much about this world

Invite to walk – heavenly minded, world-is-not-my-home-freedom in Christ

  1. Preach against – Over reacting with super negativism to all that is wrong (nearly all IS wrong)

Invite to walk of joy – Seeing Jesus – not blind to wrong but Christ is greater!!!

  1. Preach against – too high expectations (not angels) AND too low expectations (therefore still carnal)

Invite to walk “just right.” He is glorified (not us, as legalists may wish) Still human – holy & human.

Borrowed ( II )

Christ borrowed a burro,

Upon which He could ride.

Like He’d borrowed a boat,

Edge of Galilee’s tide.

He borrowed an upper,

Big, Passover-time room,

And became the only “Man”

Known to borrow a tomb.

Seems the Owner of earth

Hadn’t much worldly “worth.”

Yet He purchased us all

Back, from Eden-site’s fall.

Men who want to correct

the Classic KJV to suit their “modern” idea of standard English, fail to see that they are just a stage in the changing (not all for the good) English language. The KJV stands f-o-u-n-d-a-t-i-o-n-a-l to the entire English language.
