1Jo 4.21 +


1Jo 4.21

“And this commandment have we from him,

That he who loveth God love his brother also.”


“White! Bright! Oh, I like that. Their robes are…glistening, bright.

Don’t let any of the atmosphere of this world besmirch them. Don’t let it fade them.”

– S D Herron, sermon (uncertain date)


What happened to our schools? #6

Third McGuffey Reader (4th – 5th grade, Rev.,1920) had these Christian words:

Church, 2 times (pp.51,73)   Commandment, 4 times (pp. 204-206)   Conscience (p.131) Example:

Definitions Commandments, holy laws recorded in the Bible

(Lesson LXXVII, “Holding the Fort” – no author sited)


“It is a wonderful thing about the Bible –

it can say so much in such little space.”

– S D Herron, sermon (uncertain date)


Ancient of days

The oldest thing we earthly know,

Was once as young as falling snow.

Ancient hills were once fresh dirt;

Your coat was once a lone, sheep’s “shirt.”

All we know had a launching day.

A point beyond which it had no sway.

All except for our glorious, great God,

He alone precedes sky, sea, and sod.

Jude 24

“Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling &

to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy.”


Pastor – if your goal is to make your church well-liked in the community, and if it’s your goal that you be well-like, then consider ball courts, or picnics, or other social outreaches similar to nominal churches. However, it should be your goal to make Jesus Loved & nothing will do that better than an on-fire worship services where He is in charge & you (like your congregation) are hushed or “hallelujahing” in His presence.

“Genuine prayer is never ‘good works,’ an exercise, or a pious attitude,

but it is always the prayer of a child to a Father.”

– Dietrich Bonoeffer, /Cost…Discipleship/


Marriage is NOT an experiment. Please stop acting like it is! It is for life! Marriage is God’s highest & best life for us on earth – after the eternal salvation He also planned for us.

– eab, 3/10/19


“The messengers are to deliver their testimony

to the riches of their Lord in royal poverty.”

– Dietrich Bonoeffer, /Cost…Discipleship/
