Finding Dirt…

Ever wonder why people have to hit rock bottom before they are willing to repent? Then think about this post. Only God can change our hearts.

See, there's this thing called biology...

goldThis is one of those mistranslations, misquotes, extra biblical cultural things that drive me crazy. It’s a bit like, “cleanliness is next to Godliness.” Perhaps so, but it’s still NOT in the Bible.

They sound so mundane, these kind of sweet ideas for clean living. And perhaps they are, the problem being when we don’t read the Bible for ourselves or better yet, let the Author and finisher of your faith read it too you, we really miss out.

So Proverbs 11:27 actually says in the KJV, “He that diligently seeketh good procureth favour: but he that seeketh mischief, it shall come unto him. “ Or in the ESV, “Whoever diligently seeks good seeks favor, but evil comes to him who searches for it.”

Ironically this is a passage that gives us a peek into the nature of confirmation bias. It basically says, you are going to find what…

Triggered….

Don’t pretend to understand the next generation or even my own. I just think that what we each believe makes a difference. What is the purpose of your life? What do you believe?

I also think the greatest tragedy the United States has suffered came fromgiving our children over to politicians, letting politicians decide who teaches our children and what our children learn.

What do your children believe? What is their purpose in life? Do they have a reason for living?

See, there's this thing called biology...

You may laugh at my triggers if you like, I often do. Laughter is good medicine and it is somewhat funny to be triggered by the Babylon Bee, but I was.  This article popped up in my newsfeed, source of the world’s best fake news,‘Everything Is Bad And The World Is Ending And You Shouldn’t Have Kids,’ Says Party Of Progress.”

Somewhat amusing, except, except, except, it was also distressing because I have talked to young people who have been nursed at the foot of this lie, this complete deception and they just break my heart. Adults, especially politicians, often don’t think about what they are saying and how their words might impact the children around them.

What the Bee intended as humor just brought tears to my eyes because I talk to some of these kids, I’ve given birth to some of these kids. They truly believe the…

THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN LOVE, JOY, AND WISDOM — PART 2 WITH A FEW UPDATES

Here is THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN LOVE, JOY, AND WISDOM — PART 2 WITH A FEW UPDATES. I posted the first part on August 19, 2019. Since that sparked some interest, here is the second part. The focus is the relationship between love and wisdom.

Prince William-Manassas Family Alliance

Here is the second part of THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN LOVE, JOY, AND WISDOM — PART 1. The subject is the following passage from the Bible.

John 15:9-11New American Standard Bible (NASB)

9 Just as the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you; abide in My love.10 If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love; just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love.11 These things I have spoken to you so that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full.

In Part 1 we spoke “Of Joy In Love.” Here we will speak of the relationship between love and wisdom.

Of Love With Wisdom

What of wisdom? How does wisdom figure into John 15:9-11 (the passage cited above)? Where is wisdom mentioned? That is when Jesus tells his apostles to keep…

THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN LOVE, JOY, AND WISDOM — PART 1

Here is a subject that has generated considerable interest on this blog. So check out THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN LOVE, JOY, AND WISDOM.

Prince William-Manassas Family Alliance

Pentecost by Julius Schnorr von Carolsfeld (from here)

What is the relationship between love, joy, and wisdom? Consider the following passage. Jesus knows He will soon die. So, He strengthens His apostles for the shock of His death. In middle of a series of monologues, He gives his apostles this instruction.

John 15:9-11New American Standard Bible (NASB)

9 Just as the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you; abide in My love.10 If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love; just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love.11 These things I have spoken to you so that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full.

Of Joy In Love

Why would anyone love someone else as much as they love themselves? Why would anyone do what Jesus did, die for…
