Luther Quote

“…Paul very well says ‘They deny the power of godliness.’ He does not say they deny godliness but they deny the power, strength, and virtue…by false and superstitious doctrine.”

Table Talk, p.218


Those with little formal education usually aren’t impressed by education. Those who have a little education are too impressed & try to impress educated friends with what little education they have. While those who are truly educated know they know only a little of what is to be known. And – – – those who know God, know that knowing Him is better than all education. “…The world by wisdom knew not God…”(1Co 1.21). – eab, 10/3/17




If you are going to die right,

You have to live right,

And righteous here below.

If you expect to go up,

You have to pray up;

We always reap what we sow!

If you want God,

Read the Word of God;

Walk, walk in the light.

Be sure to do,

What you know to do,

With all your will and might.

“Pray ye…the Lord of the harvest that he would send forth laborers…”(Mat 10.2) has repeatedly been used appealing for missionaries. Allow me to bring it closer home: 1.) There are churches without pastors (in your state/group?). They need a man who will LABOR. 2.) We’ve lost faithful prayers to the grave yard. They need to be replaced; that is LABOR.

“Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully

as when they do it from religious conviction.”

– Blaise Pascal, from his PENSEES


God. God IS. God is Here; God is There. God is Every – where. Yet, you may have a personal relationship with the most breathtaking Being you can imagine. (Of course, He is beyond the limits of our seemingly unlimited imaginations.) Yet you & I may have a personal relationships with Him. How’s that for Awesome?

2Th 2. 10b – 11

“…because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

“And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:”


Friend, do YOU love truth? All Truth – not that any can comprehend all but we can be open to all. The devil’s filled the world with lies (lies in disguise). We’re so constituted that if we reject truth (rejection is purposeful.) its opposite will seep/flood in to take its place. I can’t beg of you too strongly – be attracted to truth, allow that attraction to become a fascination, allow that fascination to become an obsession.
