Ante-Nicene Quote

“…We lift up our eyes, with hands outstretched, because free from sin, with head uncovered, for we have nothing whereof to be ashamed; finally, without a monitor, because it is from the heart we supplicate.”

– Tertullian, APOLOGY

You will serve God or you will serve gold.

Make your contrary assertions ever so bold,

And claim the truth has not been told.

But the love of money is the root of all evil,

The love of gold leads directly to the devil.

Gold can be shaped in various known forms,

It can appear average or far from the norms,

One is pulled to the sciences, another to the arts,

One is lulled to amalgamations, one leaves things in parts,

One seeks gold directly, another seems it to “hate,”

But gold’s the one attraction of sinners, early or late,

And you will serve God or you will serve gold.

TV agenda

My parents had the discernment to not buy a TV. My wife’s parents did not expose their children to TV. Martha and I have never owned/rented a TV. As I told a seminary class I helped teach, “We’re clean all the way back to Adam.” Many 1950s – 1970s souls with a sensitivity toward sin, avoided TV because of exposure to drinking, sex, smoking, and violence. They were right but in later years it’s become easier to see who owns and programs this filth. They had/have agenda(s), among which are the ruination of the home and through it, the nation. A big “Thank You” to the older Bryans and Scarbroughs for their wisdom.

The believing writer is heavenly inspired (on a lower level than Scripture) to pen words with the ultimate power to lift. The unbeliever writer is (sadly) hellishly “inspired” to pen words which lead, slowly or swiftly, downward, ultimately away from God. Absolute neutrality in man’s poetry and prose is a myth – “He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad” (Mat 12.30).

In “Raised-bed Garden News” – Last summer I added a “stone” walled bed attached to the south end of Bryan Bungalow. It is approx. 2×14 feet and lower than our regular wooden/metal beds. Last week this new bed received a pvc trellis to hold the beans planted there – Scarlet Runners. If you have “words-o-wisdom” as a grower of scarlet runner beans, please feel free to write. They’re new to me.
