“…What is your life? It is even a vapor,

that appeareth for a little time & then vanisheth away.”

…The guidance of the Spirit of truth, which leads into all truth & into all virtue, will never lead any man, either in opinion or practice to any thing which is Contrary to Holy Scripture.” 

– Joseph John Gurney

You’re carrying a heavy load. In my younger days I might have come along side & helped you carry a physical load but what you’re struggling with isn’t tangible. Bro./Sis. you’re burdened with Carnality. You’re trying to please the demands of “the ole man” “the ole woman” & at the same time profess to be a follower of Christ. Let me tell you – you can get rid of the nature of Adam (Eve) & you can do it now. Stop trying to please Carnality; yours (or others looking on). Be filled with the Holy Ghost. – 9/23/21

“…Though it is a narrow way, it is a way of peace.”

Home school or buy a bigger house? No question – home school! Home school or trade for a better car?  No question – home school! “Cars & houses, lands & money, Are but features of the time…”** Beside your own soul, the ONLY “thing” you’re going to take with you into eternity is your child. Houses rot, cars rust, but your child’ll be alive 1000 yrs from now. And if that aliveness is Blessed above or imprisoned below, may depend on the education you provided by work & prayer. **Lines of poem God gave1972  – 9/24/21

D & R. Is it a sin to divorce & remarry? Some “christians” defend D&R. A part of those defending it think they base their view on Mat 5.32 (“…saving for the cause of fornication…”) & 19.9 (“…except [it be] for fornication…” Friend, fornication is not adultery & adultery is not fornication). I fear a willingness to accept D&R is not based on Scripture but emotion; we feel sorry for a person “caught” in D&R & want to “help” them. Please read Rom 7.2-3, 1Co 7.11&39. Marriage. Is. For. Life. – 9/25/21

Heb 2.15

“And deliver them who through fear of death

were all their lifetime subject to bondage.”

“A religion, even popular Christianity, could enjoy a boom altogether divorced from the transforming power of the Holy Spirit and so leave the church of the next generation worse off…”

Thank God for every man who rejects Biological Evolution – some because of Scripture, some because of Sensible thinking. Why have many failed to see Astronomical Evolution is also opposed by the Bible & clear thinking? The millions of yrs evolution “requires” for “ameba to man” is likewise “required” for light to get to earth (their idea not mine) from a star “light yrs away.” Christian, stop believing millions of yrs for Astronomy as well as Biology. “For in six days the LORD made heaven & earth…”(Exo 20.11). – 9/26/21 

…We so desperately need leaders with the gift of discernment…

we do not have them & are compelled to fall back upon the techniques of the world.”

[1] “Mainist” is a word her Dad, EAB II used to use.
