Exo 20.4 +

Exo 20.4

“Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath or that is in the water under the earth:”

 

“Carnal anger springs from an unholy principle…

Righteous indignation does not & maybe & often is the result of holiness itself.”

– H A Baldwin, /Holiness…Human Element/

 

Warning – post may seem extreme to some – Please think about influence before dropping into waste can.

Many children (& adults) wear clothing/caps with logos & names from hollywood (& its twin) disney films. Younger people have grown up seeing comic strip characters, Saturday AM cartoon creatures, other make-believe “beings” emblazoned on shirts & take it as a part of culture. Ah. What culture? We know “talking” animals, “flying” men/women, “magical” beasts do Not exist. We know hollywood nor disney have shown any love for God. Why are we, as Christians, helping spread their falseness? Please cease & desist.

“The more holy a saint of God becomes

 the more he hates sin.”

– H A Baldwin

 

NOW  

I was once your age,

On the ladder of life,

Climbing rung by happy rung,

Glimpsed what was “the rage,”

Sidestepped the strife,

Sang what was then sung.

 

Life has turned a page,

For me and my dear wife,

We are no longer “young,”

But we’re enjoying this stage

With its blessing so rife.

 

Blessing o’er head are hung.

Enjoy living, youth or sage.

Love each stage of your life!

Love the years you’re among.

Php 2.3

“Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but

in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.”

 

The devil wants to divide us: Republican/Democrat, Chevy/Ford, “gold”/“green” (teams), for police/not for police, “X” university/“Y” university, support military/not support, etc. Such divisions (& hype about them) are distractions from “death, sod, & God” – things about which we should be thinking. Give God your soul & love people regardless of “party.”

“I have not chosen to please my worldly-minded relatives,

not to please the sophisticated members of the church but I please God.”

– H Robb French, “Eight Rm House”

 

E ~ T ~ E ~ R ~ N ~ I ~ T ~ Y just an 8 letter word? No! For family/friends who passed into it, it’s far more than a word. If they were obeying Jesus 100% (“All for Jesus, all for Jesus…”(Asa Hull), Eternity stretches ahead with endless beauty, harmony, freshness in the presence of the Lord.  If they rejected God’s redeeming Son, Eternity stretches ahead with pain, fire, memories, & no water forever & forever. – eab, 1/31/19

 

“It would revolutionize our lives

to live more in the light of eternity.”

– H Robb French, “Eight Rm House”
