A Quote From Luther

“No greater mischief can happen to a Christian people than to have God’s word taken from them or falsified so that they no longer have it pure and clear.”

Table Talk, p.6



I don’t understand my marvelous brain (not said braggingly – I surely didn’t make it). The Creator made a fantastic body but the brain is more complicated by far. We are able to understand a little and that little is enough to tell us that we do NOT understand our brain or the mind that courses through it.

Someday, life as for years we’ve known it,

Will all be gone in the twinkling of an eye.

The seed will grow just where we’ve sown it,

(For as a tree falleth so shall it lie)

And as a man liveth, be it good or evil,

As a man liveth, so shall he die.

– eab, Jul. ’74



War destroys. War destroys bridges and buildings. War destroys innocency and virginity. War destroys homes and food supplies. Sadly, none of this destroying is accidental. Destroying is such a part of war it even has a war ship called a “Destroyer.” Which of the above do you really like? Why then, do you honor war?

“God is grieved; Jesus was grieved; the Holy Spirit was grieved; we certainly cannot anticipate any work of grace…above [this].”

– Howard Sweeten, from his book More Excellent Way



Mar 3. 5a

“And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he saith unto the man, ‘Stretch forth thine hand.’ And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other.”



Some of us have seen pride in a christian college, behind a church pulpit, or in another religious setting. If we’ll follow close to Jesus and by-His-mercy make heaven our home, we’ll never have to witness pride again. Not pride of Face or Place, pride of Race or Lace, pride of Pace or “Grace” again. No, Praise God, carnality will not be up there! Wonderful!
