Rev 3.17 +

Rev 3.17

“Because thou sayest, I am rich & increased with goods & have need of nothing;

& knowest not that thou art wretched & miserable & poor & blind & naked:”

“The most perfect & holy men are always subject…to imperfections…

false conclusions…unfaithful memory…incorrect & even absurd opinions.”

– Randolph S Foster

Some may think the inhabitants of Hell are mainly those who killed their enemy or slept with another man’s wife. Those are sins, yes. But Hell also holds those who had Pride. Some had Pride of Face. Some Pride of Lace. Some Pride of Pace. Some Pride of Race. Some Pride of Chase. And, sadly, some even had Pride of supposed “Grace.” If you have Pride in your life God can remove it. Let Him. – 11/12/21 

“Sin committed &

depravity felt are very different.”

– Randolph S Foster

2 Pet 1.5-7 (Greatest “Addition problem” in the Bible) “And beside this, giving all diligence,

ADD to your faith virtue;                  AND to virtue knowledge;

AND to knowledge temperance;   AND to temperance patience;

AND to patience godliness;     AND to godliness brotherly kindness;

AND to brotherly kindness charity.  – 11/21/21


In the beginning – of measured things,

Before the clock of time was wound,

It was know that man would sin,

And a remedy had to be found.

After a period of loving thought,

It was decided by the Great Three-In-One,

That God would send man a Gift –

His Fellow Creator, Partner, and Son.

– eab,  Nov. 1969

“Don’t believe everything you read.” Not original with me – but VERY important. Don’t believe [almost] ANYTHING you see on TV. (I don’t own one – hope you can say the same.) If you see a TV at a barber shop, friend’s house, etc. ignore it or pretty well know there’s another (better?) side to their “news.” NOW HEAR THIS – even what you think is a “conservative” news source should not be fully trusted. Live your life above/beyond news. Do not make news the center of your day! – 11/18/21

“If I were master of the country

I would not allow them to practice usury.”

– Martin Luther

Mat 6.7

“But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do:

for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.”

In yrs of pastoring I knocked on many doors. In the process several dogs barked at me. To some I said, “You like your voice, don’t you”. For your information – there are preachers who “like their voice” – they enjoy attention. If/when you sense this, ask God 1.) to take out selfishness (if they’re carnal), 2.) to change them (if this is personality), 3.) to give you the grace to put up with this, or 4.) to give you guidance if you’re to change churches.  Long-windedness is seldom necessary. – 11/29/21

“In God we may acknowledge the unchangeable & certain motion of the stars of heaven;

the sun each day rises & sets in his place…”

– Martin Luther
