Wisdom claims to be qualified to speak of truth and righteousness. Many people today claim to know truth. And conspiracy theories are believed by many. It is difficult to know truth except for the character of the person speaking. How can we attest to wisdom’s claims to be righteous and truthful?
When I sing this song at karaoke it reminds me of a grown man who is unable to walk away from a bad relationship. I don’t know why that would be, but I’ve seen it many times.
This is a hot-button issue for me. I will add more posts on this topic under the tag Cohabitation. While my wife and I have not had a perfect marriage – we’ve had an improving marriage. And joining a Bible believing church was the step in the right direction.
I believe this short chapter in the Old Testament is loaded with meaning we can use today. This scripture ties these three elements together into a package we can all relate to.
To me what is worse is these attitudes in our church leaders. The credibility of our faith rests on our integrity. Even when we have point of view an unbeliever would disagree with, they will listen and not reject our faith as long as they can trust that we’re not into conspiracy theories.
Biblically “moral” and compassionate Christians do enjoy greater satisfaction in their lives. This is beccause they enjoin a synergy with the Creator of our existence.
At my church we have Communion each week. I’m one of five men in the rotation (occasionally a woman). And it never gets old. And you’re probably asking how that can be?
Satan’s lies always try to get us to think we’re in charge and don’t need the One who created us. Notice Adam, who walked with God, sat passively by even though he had also known they shouldn’t eat the forbidden fruit.
Notice that we are baptized into His death. Jesus did not need to recover from His past; but we do. Also notice that we’re not left there. But we are raised to a new life. But we are also called to complete His mission (the salvation of lost souls).
The church Paul describes in his greeting was what church should be. A place where outsiders hear about our good reputation for love, acceptance, forgiveness, and discipleship.
