In summary, God is in the business of removing all fear. First, there is NO other thing that deserves fear but God. Once God perfects His love in you, you’ll have NO fear. I hope you’ll read on… I found this topic extremely interesting and hope you do too. Continue reading
Meek or Mean?
We can be so mean to one another when we are left to our own devices. Sometimes we are the meanest to those closest to us. We are born out of the womb selfish and self-centered. We have to be in order to survive by design. When we need something, we cry until we get it and it doesn’t matter what Mom may have to do to get it. Then as we develop and mature, we develop mature abilities of kindness and selflessness that can only be learned through experience, what we are taught by example, role-models and if we surrender to the Holy Spirit.

Does It Matter to God?
History shows that religious authorities systematically set aside the Bible’s days of worship and substituted other practices and celebrations with distinctly non-Christian origins. Is God pleased and honored with such worship?
How well do the customs and traditions of Christmas match the biblical account of Christ’s birth? An objective look shows that many traditions supposedly rooted in the Bible don”t match the biblical account.
Since the Jews added the feasts of Purim (the origins of which are described in the book of Esther) and Hanukkah, otherwise known as the Feast of Lights or Feast of Dedication (John 10:22-23), some believe we are free to add any religious holidays and celebrations of our own choosing. Is this true?
“We are, therefore, to acknowledge one God, infinite, eternal, omnipresent, omniscient, omnipotent, the creator of all things, most wise, most just, most good, most holy. We must love him, fear him, honour him, trust in him, pray to him, give him thanks, praise him, hallow his name, obey his commandments, and set times apart for his service, as we are directed in the third and fourth Commandments, for this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments, and his commandments are not grievous. I John v. 3. And these things we must do not to any mediators between him and us, but to him alone, that he may give his angels charge over us, who, being our fellow-servants, are pleased with the worship we give to their God. And this is the first and the principal part of religion. This always was, and always will be the religion of God’s people, from the beginning to the end of the world.”
Isaac Newton, quoted in Sir David Brewster, Memoirs of the Life, Writings, and Discoveries of Sir Isaac Newton, 2 vols., Edinburgh, 1885.
When we present God’s holy law,
And arguments from scripture draw;
Objectors say, to pick a flaw,
Though at the first Jehovah blessed
And sanctified His day of rest;
The same belief is still expressed –
Though with the world this rest began
And thence through all the scriptures ran,
And Jesus said ’twas made for man –
Though not with Jewish rites, which passed
But with the moral law was classed
Which must endure while time shall last –
Though the disciples, Luke and Paul,
Continue still this rest to call
The ‘Sabbath day’, this answers all –
The gospel teachers’ plain expression,
That ‘Sin is of the law transgression,’
Seems not to make the least impression –
They love the rest of man’s invention,
But if Jehovah’s day we mention,
This puts an end to all contention –
