Psa 1.5

“…The ungodly shall not stand in the judgment,

nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.”

“Men remain in ignorance as long as they hate,

& they hate unjustly as long as they remain in ignorance.”

– Tertullian (155 – 240)

IMAGE.  “Think outside the box” – you’ve heard that. “THINK.” You’ve heard that too. Let me add another – Think outside the “moving picture frame.” satan wants you to succumb to “his age” of images. We can’t help our birth year. We were born in this time of electronics – extreme use of electronics. Yes, I’m using an “electric gadget” to try to warn us about this trap. Not only as Christians but as thinking people, I urge an awareness AND a backing away from addiction to electronics & its images. – 9/25/22

“Nothing that is God’s is obtainable by money.”

– Tertullian (155 – 240)


Lord, I’m sorry you see the filled flask.

Looking at sinful men is a task.

You invited them to ask of You,

But they refuse to Ask. 

Lord, I’m sorry that every long week,

You must again see the unturned cheek.

You invited them to seek from You,

But they refuse to Seek.

Lord, I’m sorry for the goat-filled-flock

You observe all around the clock.

You invited them to knock to you,

But they refuse to Knock.

TWO DIRECTIONS 1. You’re a Child, trying with all your heart to mind God but your parents (once saints) have decided to go an “easier” route. Or, you’re a Parent seeking to entirely follow Christ, but your child has veered onto the Broad Way. >> 1.) In a way I don’t want type this. 2.) I desire to write with carefulness. – Do me a favor, please. Understanding the best you can & think/pray *without *rebuttal. We all “live in glass houses.” Some of the best men I’ve known suffered here. << – 9/29/22

Offerings to propitiate the dead then were regarded as belonging to the class of funeral sacrifices

& these are idolatry.”

– Tertullian (155 – 240)

Many are ignorant of the Word of God. That is sad. More sad are those who chose to ignore God’s Word. There are “christians” who “honor” the Word but in reality treating It as a charm. “Some christians” do shallow reading. Real Christians read the Word of God. More mature Christians study It from time to time. The most Godly souls make the Everlasting Word a Life-Long journey in study & memorization. – 9/30/22  

Psa 119.11

“Thy word have I hid in mine heart,

that I might not sin against thee.”

“We’ve learned better” someone might spout. Reject such a statement from whoever says it regarding the tension between Scripture & so-called-science. “But the writers of the Bible were not scientifically trained.” Two things. 1.) The men called writers were in a sense amanuenses – God Almighty was the True Writer of His Book. 2.) Moses had the best education Egypt (then greatest nation on earth) could offer & Paul was highly educated. Moderns in the broad sense, haven’t “learned better.” – 10/3/22     

The blood of the martyrs is the seed of the church.”

– Tertullian (155 – 240)
