1Co 5.11

“…If any man that is called a brother be a fornicator or covetous or an idolater

or a railer or a drunkard or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.

[“railer”- uttering bitter complaint]


“You may say, ‘Well, I’m going to have my rights.’

Maybe you will, but you may not have your grace.”

– S D Herron /Fr. the Heart of Pres. Herron/


Jer 32.17 Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast MADE the Heaven and the Earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee: -God made Heaven, Earth, World # 28


“The closer He came to Calvary, the narrower the group became.”

The devil is not scared of a “form of godliness,” in fact he uses such to slyly damn souls. It’s when a man, when a woman, reaches for & with holy determination reaches through into the richness of God’s Power that satan is disturbed. Expect a fight from him, but after the fight expect his flight. You & God make a wonderful majority.

So, why are you going? “Well, many professed christians are going.” Sadly, I understand that, but that doesn’t answer the question – Why are YOU going? An appetite for worldly fun reveals a worldly heart (except in very new christians). Reach for the higher pleasures Christ has for you.

“A woman is, or at least should be,

– Martin Luther /Table talk/
