Luther a.g.a.i.n.

Luther Quote

“St. Paul, himself a widower, enjoins bishops to marry…”

Table Talk, p.302

 

Christ paid a horrible price for man’s salvation; He asks only that man believe His Words & obey His Words (“If ye love me, keep my commandments” Joh14.15). Those unwilling to do this will find a cheap substitute called “religion:” centered on some so-called-god or centered on themselves.

CHURCH

A certain kind of people

Meeting under a tall steeple

Imagine that that’s the church.

Tall walls do not a church make.

New birth is more than a handshake;

Which these find out when in a lurch.

 

The church is made of redeemed hearts,

And though they meet in various parts,

Under clear sky, under a huge tree;

Worship, that’s why we gather

Even in cold, wet weather.

Church is you and me.

Those who’ve never had the “Joy of the Lord” or who’ve lost His Joy, tend to op for the earth’s mirth. Earth’s low-worth mirth stays here. Period. Heaven wont’ have the slightest use for it. And such frivolity will only aggravate the damned.

“Who is it that loves God and does not wish to love Him with all the heart.”

Brother, it’s better to have few-to-no close friends, as to chum with men whose life, writing/posting, and congregation (if they have one) reveal they’re in love with the grandiose doings of the worldly church. Make sure Christ is your Best Friend & that the few who you have in your inner-circle are men who love Him as much or more than you do.

Joh 15. 18

“If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.”

 

“Your team”? What do your mean, “Your team”? As a close follower of Jesus Christ you have no loyalty to any of earth’s teams, players, mascots, symbols, or colors. “But…but…” Please, Friend do not try to excuse any love for the god of sports, a leading god of this world.
