Luther quote & & &

Luther Quote

“…Jerome and Origen, God forgive them, were the cause that allegories were held in such esteem.”

Table Talk, p.328

 

“Lord, somewhere, today, allow someone to ask themselves 1 or all 5 of these questions:”

1.) “Who am I?”   2.) “What is Life?” 3.) “Where am I Going?” 4.) “When will I Die?” 5.) “Why am I Here?”

SLOW PEN

Though the “quill” has run across so many lines,

One closes, knowing he did not fully profess,

All thoughts that flowed, faster than pen could flow

The pen a freight train – the mind, a midnight “express.”

– eab, 11/1/06

 

 

You married HER you thought! Ah, that union brought you into an association with her mom, with her dad, with her sis, with her bro., with her grouchy old aunt, with her anti-social uncle. Marriage has “strings” of which we didn’t dream “back when.”

– eab, 11/1/17

 

“The more holy a saint of God becomes the more he hates sin.”

– H A Baldwin, from his HOLINESS & the HUMAN ELEMENT

 

Some Greco-Romans (past & present) worship the sun. Christians worship the Maker of the sun.

Jews (past & present) “worship” the sabbath. Christians worship the “Lord…of…sabbath” (Mat 12.8, Mar 12.28, Luk 6.5).

1Jo 3. 9

“Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and

he cannot sin, because he is born of God.”

 

Don’t think it strange when mature Christians do not read or readily quote some popular “christian” preacher/teachers. Christ said, “My sheep hear my voice…” (Joh10.27) and, “…a stranger will they not follow…” (Joh10.5). BE AWARE – a false “Christianity” stalks the land.

– eab, 11/2/17
