2Ti 3.2 +

2Ti 3.2

A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant,

sober, of good behavior, given to hospitality, apt to teach;”

I call God to record against the day we shall appear before our Lord Jesus, that I never altered one syllable of God’s Word against my conscience, nor would do this day, if all that is in earth, whether it be honor, pleasure, or riches, might be given me.”

– Wm Tyndale

There is no such thing as a sinning Saint. Nor, is there a “righteous” sinner. You are one or the other.  You can (By God’s grace) go from sinner to being a Saint or sadly, you can go slide back from being a Saint to again being a sinner. No one is ever both, at the same time. No one. – 6/24/21

Christ forbiddeth his disciples & that oft…not only to climb above lords, kings & emperors

in worldly rule, but also to exalt themselves one above another in the kingdom of God
– Wm Tyndale

There was a day (thank God for such a time) when a speaker or writer could assume his hearers/readers knew Holy Writ & therefore connected with truth as he referenced this or that OT/NT person or event. Sadly movies or TV shows (& the worldly actors who play such) have replaced some of this. I see a movie/TV name show up on social media – used to identify an action or personality. Christ Himself asked “…When the Son of man cometh shall he find faith on the earth?”(Luk 18.8) – 7/31/21


I’m not building a church or other org

This side tomb, this side the morgue

Trying to bring you in or shut you out

Because this doctrine you hold or that you doubt.

But the Savior who died for your sin

(Both those outside & those within.)

Is building His Church & it has rules

(His ways separate the wise from fools.)

He even left us a Book to instruct –

So we don’t need to feel sad or stuck.

Love God with all your soul & heart

Toward your neighbor do a rightful part

And, if heaven you hope to joyfully sight

Walk now, Brother, walk in ALL your light.

Prayer is communion. It is a two-way trail winding from earth to heaven & Praise the Lord, also ascending from the Throne to your home. You may freely pass along it. God, or course, also passes freely there. At times you & God meet. A head-on-crash? Not at all. This meeting on the path of prayer is not disastrous, it is glorious. It is the mingling of an earthy child with The Heavenly Father. It is the mixing of a redeemed creature with the Creator who provided for that redemption. A Holy Union while still below. – 8/3/21

Heb 9.27

“And as it is appointed unto men once to die

but after this the judgment:”

“I believe that in the end the truth will conquer.”

John Wycliff

Someday you’ll last slouch in that favorite chair, talking to a best friend – The 1 of you 2 will be gone.

Another friend dies – you didn’t realize the last time you saw him, was the last time you’d see him.

Some hour you’ll receive news of death of Mrs “X” – there are NO exceptions to the “law” of mortality. Have you caught on yet? You may have avoided death at this intersection only to meet it at the next. We can’t outrun the grim reaper – so – what can we do? Prepare to die, my dear Friend, prepare to die. – 8/4/21

Holy Scripture is the highest authority for every believer,

the standard of faith & the foundation for reform.” 

John Wycliff
