Rom 8.6 +

Rom 8.6

“For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life & peace.”

 

“It is costly because it condemns sin & grace because it justifies the sinner…

Costly grace is the Incarnation of God.”

– Dietrich Bonoeffer

 

Someone doesn’t seem to understand you? Love Them.  Someone has taken a view on politics, even on religion, opposite you?  Love Them. Your governor has proved to be a radical leftist? Love him (Love him enough to pray for his salvation, even as you pray for his removal.) Christ said, “…Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, & pray for them which despitefully use you, & persecute you”(Mat 5.44). – 4/16/20

 

“God’s forgiveness is full;

it is free, it is forever.”

– Andrew W Blackwood

 

Authorized Version

The Authorized Version has stood strong;

Forty some men worked four years long.

Its use established grammatical word,

It’s the Classiest Book ever heard,

Its teaching can save all from wrong.

– eab, 4/15/11

 

Heaven and earth (those words only & in this order) occur in at least 31 verses in God’s Word. Heaven…earth (or earth…heaven) occur in at least 125 *additional* verses in the Bible. Obviously God links the two together. The devil (once in heaven) now has only earth & purposely draws sinner’s minds to this level only – he doesn’t want one sinner going to heaven. Sinful men (following the lead of their “father,” satan) spend untold hours doing earthy (some legitimate, some wicked) things & ignoring the vast dome overhead. Look up sinner, look up. – 4/17/20

 

“Reader, magnify God for his law, for by it is the knowledge of sin;

& magnify him for his gospel for by this is the cure for sin.”

– Adam Clarke

 

Mar 13.31

“Heaven & earth shall pass away:

but my words shall not pass away.”

 

The greatest literature in the world is the Bible. It containing the Words of God & is eternal. Words go with literature. Literature is made up of Words. Literature has been erroneously classified among “the fine arts.” Whoever did such may have been trying to bring music, painting, & sculpture up to the high level of literature. Or they may have been attempting to lower the influence of literature to the level of the more “manual” arts. Literature always involves words, powerful words. Neither music, painting, nor sculpture can be “read” nor “said” – Literature can be both. – 4/17/20

 

“Where the law ends,

Christ begins.”

– Adam Clarke
