  1. Frowardness is in his heart, he deviseth mischief continually; he soweth discord. [Proverbs 6:14]
  2. "He that lieth down with dogs shall rise up with fleas" Benjamin Franklin
  3. Madison's final words during his introduction to congress for a 'Bill of Rights' "I think we should obtain the confidence of our fellow- citizens, in proportion as we fortify the rights of the people against the encroachments of the Government." James Madison
  4. "If you can't say anything nice don't say anything at all." Many people are given originality for this quote, but I first heard it from my mother.
  5. Romans 14:5 One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.
  6. Our National Motto - 'In God We Trust' - was not chosen lightly. It reflects a basic recognition that there is a divine authority in the universe to which this nation owes homage. Ronald Reagan
  7. Sure, I don't, I've seen it at work in many Catholic friends I've had over the years. I'm sorry if it sounded that I thought Martin Luther had...would or should.
  8. "Then along comes our Lord and issues a long-awaited spiritual emancipation proclamation and signs it in blood." A.W. Tozer, The Pursuit of Man
  9. Interesting, I've seen a few articles alluding toward Martin Luther retaining observance of Roman Church dogma. A discussion on the dogma he retained apart from Luther's 95 Theses could be an extensive thread all on it's own.
  10. "How often misused words generate misleading thoughts." Herbert Spencer
  11. Kind of goes hand in hand with this next one... "You can't take it with you."
  12. “If soul-winning is the most important work of the church, it naturally follows that Satan will do all he can to get us side-tracked or satisfied with something else.” “But Social Service is not Salvation: and Reformation is not Regeneration.” Oswald J. Smith
  13. "Riches profit not in the day of wrath: but righteousness delivereth from death." [Proverbs 11:4]
  14. I thought about you too today during Pastor's message, "Eschewing Worldly Behaviors In The Last Days" from 2 Tim. 3:1-9. During the message pastor referenced 1 Tim. 6:17 Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy; "nor trust in uncertain riches" "but (trust) in the living God"
  15. I keep a spreadsheet for my journal and daily devotions, it's worked well for me for many years now. Do what works for you. I thought of you and our conversation while reading this morning... I was reading from Psalms 145 and the verse that caught my attention was... 18 The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth.
  16. I read it all but these two areas I could identify with most. The first quote is something I came to realize, the intimate and personal relationship with Jesus Christ and in Christ alone. The second quote I have sufficient means for all my needs. Now, this said, I'm still being sanctified. I think the Lord is working in the hearts of His own to prepare us for His soon meeting with us. Thank you for your openness and honesty. I've just recently had a realization of a lack of prayer but mine is a need to pray always, especially during difficulties no matter how much I would like to 'hand
  17. No, it also has to do with what day you worship the Lord. Go ahead and worship Jesus Christ on Saturday if that's your preference. But, I think we could agree we need to worship Jesus Christ daily. This has gone far beyond any value... see 2 Timothy 2:16.
  18. Me too, countless times prior understanding of scriptures changed by further study in God's Word. How many times I missed the need to ask God to help me understand, sadly they are countless too. I just read in Spurgeon's Morning by Morning today, "Prayer is always the preface to blessing. It goes before the blessing as the blessing's shadow. When the sunlight of God's mercies rises upon our necessities, it casts the shadow of prayer far down upon the plain." "How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver!" [Proverbs 16:16]
  19. So, do you have a scripture which recently or previously influenced you or made a positive change in you. How did it provide, reproof, correction, instruction, confirmation, encouraging, or joy? Nothing too personal, use some discretion for the audience sake. Recently, more than one verse... When your morning devotion falls on Psalms 139 self-reflection comes easily to any who walk the pilgrim’s way. If tears blur your reading before you’re half way through the twenty-four verses, it’s understandable. David states that the Lord has searched him and known him within the first six ve
  20. Reminds me of a quote from a book I just read... "The areas in which you are experiencing the most adversity are the areas in which God is at work." How To Handle Adversity, Dr. Charles Stanley Note: Dr. Stanley's book is written with the Christian in mind. P.S. I know what denomination he is in.
  21. "My concern is that unless we have a real spiritual awakening, and Jesus tarries a while longer, we need missionaries from Africa or China to reintroduce North America to Christianity." The Purpose Of Man, A. W. Tozer
  22. Ironside lived it, as do the preponderance of all published commentators I've been familiar with... G. Campbell Morgan, Albert Barnes, Adam Clarke, Robert Jamieson, A. R. Fausset, and David Brown, and Luke in the book of Acts would seem to bear this out. Now if you're looking for an answer to the person you originally encountered you have plenty to present from previous person's comments. If they don't care to agree after this why bother with it anyway. [see Romans 14:5-6]
