1Jo 2.17 +

1Jo 2.17

“And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof:

but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.”


“…It is a dangerous age, an age of apostasy, an age of drift. Water seeks it level…

It is so easy for God’s people to come down on the level with the world.”
– H Robb French, “8-Rm.House” (sermon)


Psst! The world is not worth what you’re paying for it!

– eab,


“…We can have our heart so full of divine love

that there will be not room for un-forgiveness or bitterness.”

– H Robb French, “8-Rm.House” (sermon)


Guess who

“Guess Who visited me today?”

The farmer, gardener, peasant might say.

Not with proud but with a grateful heart.

“Guess Who came and we walked a stretch

Him in His vast greatness, me in my small part.

Him always and eternal – me a former wretch

But He came sweetly to my lowly clay.

Ah, God walked with me today.

“I challenge the doctrine now being taught that we must enter into a mad rivalry with the Old World in the building of battleships, the doctrine that the only way to preserve peace is to get ready for wars…”

Act 17.30

“And the times of this ignorance God winked at;

but now commandeth all men every where to repent:”


“The Official Story” is put out by an official (at times a faceless bureaucrat) or one of his employees. It is passed on by people who never question anything an official says. When a person questions “The Official Story” he is suspect, as far as the official is concerned & may be labeled. Life is easier for the official when we accept what he says whether it is ½ truth or no truth. Open. Your. Eyes.

“He [Christ] warned against investments…

which would divert the affections from the great purpose of life.”

– William J. Bryan /In His Image


Evangelists & pastors used to warn about such places as Disneyland & Disneyworld. Now men/women who attend holiness churches & groups from holiness schools go. Were the yesteryear “holiness greats” wrong or are moderns “longing-for-entertainment” wrong? One has to be. I’ll stand with the anointed ministers who graced our platforms. It’s hard to imagine anything of eternal value in such places.
