Luk 4.8

“…Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God,

& him ONLY shalt thou serve.” [emphasis added]


“Men sent from God…tell us there were demoniacs in their time; you say, ‘No; they were only diseases.’ Whom shall we credit? The men sent from God or you?”

– Adam Clarke


Now & then I see someone refer to roman catholism as a christian denomination. It is not. Their worship of Mary (& belief in her “prayers”) disqualifies it, if nothing else, but there are other serious problems. – 10/11/19


“The church is weak, dark, poor &

imperfect, because it prays little.”

– Adam Clarke



A certain kind of people

Meeting under a tall steeple

Imagine that that’s the church.

Tall walls do not a church make.

New birth is more than a handshake;

Which these find out when in a lurch.


The church is made of redeemed hearts,

And though they meet in various parts,

Under clear sky, under a huge tree;

Worship, that’s why we gather

Even in cold, wet weather.

Church is you and me.

“Emerging Church Movement(ECM)…“positive Sermons…top-forty style contemporary music, dramatic productions, food courts…rock-style worship for the youth.”

The study of theology can interest people, even consume their mind for life, but their souls can fail to believe Christ, His glorious promises, & hell become their end. Allow religion/salvation to go deeper than your head. – 10/16/19


Pro 14.34

“Righteousness exalteth a nation:

but sin is a reproach to any people.”


We’ve tried to believe our land is “christian.” We’ve wanted to look at the Pilgrims (far from perfect), at Edwards, Asbury, Finney & the circuit-riders & I thank God for these men. What we don’t want to look at are millions killed by our wars, killed by our legalized liquors (states make untold $ on taxes), killed by our abortionists. Nor the sins of adulterous leaders, sodomy in high places, & immodesty, even in church. Decades ago I realized I was a Christian 1st an American 2nd That Is Serious! I hope it fits readers also.

Luk 4.8 +

Luk 4.8

“…It is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God,

and him only shalt thou serve.”


Who is blurring the line between worship & entertainment? And Why? People truly in love with the Holy Trinity want an atmosphere where man is on the side, & God is Central! People who aren’t in love with God tend to want (demand?) entertainment. Entertainment put man in the center with a song, playing an instrument, acting, clowning, even making a speech (some might call it a “sermon”). God is missing.



“What Scripture tells us that the Spirit will be withdrawn in the tribulation?


– L L Pickett, /The Antichrist/


Rev 17.8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the EARTH shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the WORLD, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. Earth&World – think. #33    >> Last in this series – new series, God willing, is coming. <<



An image can frequently lead astray,

While words often lead to truth.

The devil uses images everyday;

They are many times uncouth

And need a holy reproof.

Therefore let images be put away.

Act 7.42

“Then God turned,

and gave them up to worship the host of heaven…”


It was a good day when you learned what “1” was. And, it was a good day when you learned the association between “1” & “first” (1st). But the best day of your life was when you learned that Jesus Christ should be # 1 and, there & then, made Him First in your life. Amen?

“ ‘Everybody talk’n ‘bout Heaven ain’t g’ing there.’

Yes, but everybody going there is talking about it.”

– Orlow C Webb, sermon, 5/1/97


Be conscious of, and do everything in your power to stay away from sun worship. (Someone may say, “Come-on, Bryan, sun worship went out centuries ago.” – Open your eyes, sun symbols are around, even in some churches.”) Become a worshipper of The Son, Jesus Christ. One can appreciate the sun without worshipping it. The Son is worthy of all our worship, now & forevermore.

Translation Trouble – Luk 4.8

AV “And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.”

ASV – And Jesus answered and said unto him, ___________ It is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God and him only shalt thou serve.



“Get thee behind me satan” is completely

omitted by the ASV!   Why?   Is this to

accommodate the theory that Peter was

the “1st pope” and they do not want him

called satan?
