“Buy the truth & sell it not; also wisdom,

& instruction, & understanding.”

Genuine prayer is never ‘good works’ an exercise or

a pious attitude but it is always the prayer of a child to a Father.”

– Dietrich Bonoeffer

D & R. What’s the Biblical stance on divorce & remarriage? “So then if while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man”(Rom 7.3). Is that too plain? Please Friend (& I DO write as a friend) I’m Friend enough to tell you what’ll keep you out of heaven. Adultery can be forgiven BUT this only works when adultery is FORSAKEN.

“God’s name, God’s kingdom, God’s will

must be the primary object of Christian prayer.”

– Dietrich Bonoeffer

Suicide 1. God was in charge of the sperm when it mated up with the egg & became you. The Almighty made the sperm. The Supreme Being created the egg. The Triune allowed your sperm/egg union. God is in charge of life. You are not! The Father allows you to enjoy life but He hasn’t transferred life’s power to you. AND, hear me please, since He started Life, He & He *only* has the right to end it. You Have No Right To End Life. Period! Do not try to take His place. Suicide is sin! (to be con’t.) – 1/10/22


Oh Lord, You must defeat the enemy,

Defeat him as only you can,

The end I cannot see.

O destroy the destroyer of man.

– eab,  Jan. ’77


Off with the glory,

And on with the glitz;

That’s what happens

When God’s not in our midst.

Musick or Song: WARNING you may not like these. “Musick” (old spelling) occurs ONCE in the NT. Once. Dancing” occurs one time in the NT. Once. Interestingly, they happen in the same v. (Luk 16.25). [“Danced” is in NT but contexts are negative.] These can easily be contrasted with “Song” (& its derivatives) which are found scattered Mat 26.30 to Rev 15.3. God’s people (NT & since) have sung His praises but the modern emphasis on “music as entertainment” is not in the NT.  (to be con’t.) – 1/10/22

Psa 100.1-2

“Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.

Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.”

“When asked the secret of his success said,

‘I never say *No* to God’”

– Wm Booth

Dads, Moms – may I have your ears. Are you teaching Johnny (Susie) to CLEAN up his plate? If not – allow me to be honest – you’re failing them (in this area). If the day ever arrives in which they don’t have food (or not as abundant as now) they may remember leaving a final bite (or more) on their plate, meal after meal. If you, parent are still filling plates – either as a family tradition (I kind-a-like it) or because of their age, don’t, repeat DON’T give them to much. But please require that they eat it all. – 1/10/22

“…We give the name of virtues to our vices

& go on self-deceived.”

– Beverly Carradine
