Considering Proverbs 11:2

When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom. This reminds me of something Jesus said. “I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.

My Use of “Man” Statements Do Not Indicate a Critical Stance Against the “Patriarchy.”

Do any of you wonder why I use the term “man” or “men” when speaking of corruption within the church and its leadership? Do you suppose that I am among those who want to overthrow the “patriarchy?” I don’t know much about these arguments. I’m not even sure what the “patriarchy” is, but I haveContinue reading “My Use of “Man” Statements Do Not Indicate a Critical Stance Against the “Patriarchy.””

Exercising in Truth

Moving Away from Cancel Culture toward Connection – Reblog from In My Father’s House

Last time I talked about how we do have some commonality with people who may have a different worldview than ours.

AsContinue reading “Moving Away from Cancel Culture toward Connection – Reblog from In My Father’s House”

Considering Proverbs 9:10 (Part 2)

10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding. What does it mean, “knowledge of the holy is understanding?” I looked up different translations of the verse above, and I think we were on the right track yesterday; the best kind of knowledge is the knowledge of HeContinue reading “Considering Proverbs 9:10 (Part 2)”
