Gen 13.13 +

Gen 13.13

“But the men of Sodom were wicked

& sinners before the LORD exceedingly.”

“Certainty is the mark of the common sense life

gracious uncertainty is the mark of the spiritual life.”

– Oswald Chambers

How seriously do we take Christ’s wonderful, wise words? He said, “But be not ye called rabbi…”(Mat 23.8) “Neither be ye called masters…” (Mat 23.10). If we’re not to use these, I doubt we should call others such (Jews say “rabbi,” another says “master”). Christ also said “…Call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father which is in heaven.” No man means “no man.” Any man who insists on being called father is wrong. AND you’re wrong, friend, to violate Jesus’ words by calling any man “father.” – 1/23/21

“How does Jesus Christ teach a man to forget sin? By forgiving him.

How does a pagan teach a man to forget sin ‘Ignore it, think no more about it, realize yourself!’”

– Oswald Chambers

Non-believers at times confuse cults with Christianity. Some cults would like you to think that they’re christian (a group can’t be both Christian & a cult). In reality only True Christians recognize True Christianity. And, only True Christians fully recognize the cult as a cult. – 2/15/21     

Noble Notes

As the world modulates from key to key,

Hitting sour notes more frequently,

You, Lord, are the same forever.

Your music is not only sweet; it’s clever.

People change religions to marry – it meant less to them than human “love.” Others change religions to make money – it meant less than cash. Still others change religions to advance in society – it means less than political position. Sadly some have changed religion at the point of a sword or gun barrel – their religion meant less than life. Thank the Lord for the 100,000s (number unknown to me) who’ve loved God (not a mere religion) & therefore “…loved not their lives unto the death”(Rev 12.11). – 2/16/21

Rev 12.11

“They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb &

by the word of their testimony & they loved not their lives unto the death”

“He who gives his heart to the world robs God of it &

snatching at the shadow of earthly good, loses substantial & eternal blessings.”

– Adam Clarke 

I like God. (Don’t mean to sound light, pardon me, if you think it does.) I’m 100% serious – I like God. I’ve been learning about Him since I was a kid: Dad & Mom, Sunday Sch, Church, Christian high sch., Bible college, (20 yrs later) seminary, private devotions, teacher readiness, sermon preparations, reading of solemn books, etc. I still know so little – ‘cause He is so big, so complex, so infinite. I like God – – – & the more I know about Him, the better I like Him. Yes, I love God. Told Him that this AM. – 2/20/21

“A godly man must save both time & $. Before he was converted he lost…

time & squandered…$. All this he now saves…”
