Several things

Luther Quote

“…St. Peter was at Rome…

has never yet been, nor ever will be proved…”

Table Talk, p.174

Dad, are you allowing your son to do what your holy dad wouldn’t allow you to do? WHY?

Mom, are you permitting a daughter to dress in ways your saintly mother forbid you? WHY?

For the sake of eternity (parent’s & child’s) you need to HONESTLY answer Why?

The mighty oak from an acorn came,

Bursting, throbbing, growing in strain;

Pulled up by the light, pushed up by the rain.

It didn’t happen over night.

No stalwart man is instant made.

It takes pressure, decisions, days of shade;

Pulled up by prayer, pushed by reading, rare.

Small souls and fires quickly fade.

The Worship of the Triune Godhead should draw our attention now & ever. Such worship should Awe us, Humble us, Inspire us. Worshipping of the Father, the Son, & the Holy Ghost should be the high point of every Lord’s Day, the sought-for point in every Family Altar (devotions as family units), & the rejoicing point in our daily private times with God. Amen?

“Jim Elliott…“I went a friend’s house last night and looked at TV.

God convicted me with Psalm 119:37: ‘Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity.’”

– Quoted by Vance Havner, from his ON THIS ROCK

1Co 10. 7

“Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written,

‘The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.’”



He “earns” WHAT?!? That’s his pay – – – to merely play? He doesn’t make a door/window. He doesn’t grow veggies/fruits. His “activity” yields no better river or pond. I’m happy that the exorbitant “salaries” paid to grown men chasing each other down a “cow-pasture” wanting a pig-skin the other guy has, have not received one dollar from me. And you? If every one who was in church this week, stopped paying-to-watch such frivolity maybe, MAYBE some of these playboys would get real jobs.
