Religion in form

Will not stand life’s storm.

Religion in rite

Will not weather death’s night.

Religion by tradition

Will not handle eternal transition.

1. B i b l e  readers tend to speak/write

in terms of the Holy Scriptures,

 

2. Worshipers of sports

tend to speak in “sports terms,”

 

3. TV worshippers

tend to speak/think in terms they hear on TV.  

 

(Friend –  which of these 3 dominate your

thought patterns / speech?)

Translation Trouble – Jam 5.16

 

AV “Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed…”

 

NIV   Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed…   

 

Why has the NIV changed “faults” to

 

“sins”?  Think.  Who?  What religious

 

system has people confessing their

 

sins to a man, instead of God?  God

 

and God alone can forgive sins.

If you were the devil

 

trying to fill hell with God’s creation –

If you feel at home in Egypt’s “clime,”

Happy to give it your energy and time,

Not minding its sin, yes, and slime;

Then you’re a poor, lost sinner, My Friend.

 

If you’re out of sin but wand’ring wild,

Out of sin, but very much a child 

Wanting religion – Please “keep it mild.”

Then you’re a carnal Christian, My Friend.

 

If you’ve approached Jordan at high tide,

Have, by faith, crossed its waters, floody and wide

And know now the Spirit doth abide,

You’re a holy believer, My Friend.

 

Is there more to this Egypt-toward-Canaan walk?

Yes, circle Jericho, circle without talk,

And by all means, avoid Achan’s balk,

There is growth in Canaan land, My Friend.  – eab, 1/14/07

Science is man’s attempt to           Advance himself  

   Art is man’s attempt to               Express himself   

      Religion is man’s attempt to     Save himself                                  

                                                     All center on self.    – eab, 3/10/06
