    How about the sinner’s prayer? Or anything about making a decision and walking down an aisle for salvation? How about bad things happening to good people?…there are no good people.

    Ben Franklin – Poor Richards Almanac – has lots that I like.

    I missed the show, but I gather that the point was that Bible knowledge is pretty poor in our day, and that we need to get to know Scripture better in order to not go around quoting things like “cleanliness is next to godliness” as if they were Scripture. To which I offer a hearty “amen”!

    Why aren’t these shows archived anywhere on the web? I miss most of them due to work…

    It is quite sad that so many in America are willfully ignorant of the many truths contained in the Bible. Many in America have turned their hearts away and walk in their own ways after the image of their own gods.

    One quote I do like that isn’t in the Bible is this: “I never said it would be easy, I only said it would be worth it.”

    Posted above is “the big question”, “How do we get back to the Word?”

    The principle cause of the Protestant Reformation in the 1500’s was sola scriptura or scripture alone. Many of the abuses of the Roman Catholic Church at the time stemmed from the error of allowing even good words of men to occupy a parallel or lateral authority along side of scripture (which in someway might foreshadow the relativism of our day)when they should occupy a lower authority (if any) below scripture. This is still one of the primary problems in the visible church today. Even if we give lip-service to the concept of sola scriptura today, there are so many symptoms that exist to evidence the contrary. One of those symptoms is the lack of biblical literacy.

    When there are Pastors with some of the largest Churches in America that don’t even preach the Word of God but a how-to-be-blessed kind of message, it’s no wonder the Christians in his Church don’t know their Bible. Then again every Christian should make it their priority to know the Word for themselves. ”Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth.” 2 Tim: 2 v 15.

    Ask us preachers about this scenario. Parishioner mentions something like this, “like it says in the Bible, ‘God helps those who help themselves.'” The preacher responds by saying, “I don’t actually think that’s in the Bible, where do you find it.” The parishioner then says, “I don’t know where it is, you’re supposed to know that. Well what kind of a preacher are you if you don’t know where it is in the Bible?”

    Funerals, deathbeds, and times of crisis are always a great opportunity to hear fake verses, new age thought, and good ole-fashioned Gnostic heresy.

    here’s one:

    “spare the rod, spoil the child.”

    I agree with post one. Where is the sinner’s prayer, altar call, ask Jesus into your heart, in the Bible?

    Then again, where is denominationalism at in the Bible? Can’t find Baptist, Methodist, Lutheran, etc. in the Scriptures. Question: If we rebuke those who quote non-verses not found in the Bible, do we rebuke whole denominations that are not found in the Bible?

    Things that make you go hummmmmmmmmmm.

    Thanks Zerxil.

  12. John said

    Can we quote a piece of poetry Moderator?

  13. I think that will be fine. We’ll see if we get any complaints. As long as it’s not obscene or vulgar/profane, it should be OK.

    I like…

    DARE GREATLY- It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or were the doer of deeds could have been better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred with dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end knows the triumph of high achievement
    ; and who at the worst, if he fails,at least fails why daring greatly; so that his place will never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.-Theodore Roosevelt

    Thankyou, Moderator/Truthtalklive.

    Here is one of MYYYY favorites.

    THE HERITAGE By James Russell Lowell

    The rich man’s son inherits lands, and piles of brick and stone, and gold, And he inherits soft white hands, and tender flesh that fears the cold, nor dares to wear a garment old;
    A heritage, it seems to me, one scarce would wish to hold in fee.

    The rich man’s son inherits cares; the bank may break, the factory burn, a breath may burst his bubble shares, and soft white hands could hardly earn a living that would serve his turn; a heritage, it seems to me, one scarce would wish to hold in fee.

    The rich man’s son inherits wants; His stomach craves for dainty fare; with sated heart he hears the pants of toiling hinds with brown arms bare, and wearies in his easy chair;
    a heritage, it seems to me, one scarce would wish to hold in fee.

    What doth the poor man’s son inherit?
    Stout muscles and a sinewy heart, a hearty frame, a heartier spirit; King of two hands, he does his part in every useful toil and art; a heritage, it seems to me, aking might wish to hold in fee.

    What doth the poor man’s son inherit?
    Wishes o’erjoyed with humble things, a rank adjudged by toil -worn merit, content that from employment springs, a hearty that in his labor sings; a heritage, it seems to me, a King might wish to hold in fee.

    What doth the poor man’s son inherit?
    A patience learned of being poor, Courage, if sorrow come, to bear it, a fellow-feeling that is sure to make the outcast bless his door; a heritage, it seems to me, a King might wish to hold in fee.

    O rich man’s son! there is a toil that with all others level stands; large charity doth never soil, but only whiten soft white hands-This is the best crop from thy lands; A heritage, it seems to me, Worth being rich to hold in fee.

    O poor man’s son! Scorn not thy state; There is worse wariness than thine, In merely being rich and great; Toil only gives the soul to shine, And makes rest fragrant and benign; A heritage, it seems to me, Worth being poor to hold in fee.

    Both, heirs to some six feet of sod, Are equal in the earth at last; Both, children of the same dear God, Prove title to your heirship vast. By record of a well-filled past; A heritage, it seems to me, Well worth a life to hold in fee.

    It seems all good things do come to an end.

    Welcome back John. Hope your trip was fruitful.

    The lion shall lay down with the lamb

    This is a popularly misquoted passage from Scripture. From filtering into pop culture to influencing Christian kitsch, the image of a lamb sweetly nestled into the side of a powerful lion is one that resonates.

    um, this has happened in real life…

    “And dust shall be the serpent’s food.”

    Its kind of funny, recent mythology, a wurm is a name for a great serpent. wurm, worm.

  19. Zerxil said

    18) but not in the bible… I really thought it was.

  20. Maz said

    Zerxil: Although those words are not in the Bible, Isaiah 11 v 6,7 says, ”The wolf shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid, and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together, and a little child shall lead them. And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together. And the lion shall eat straw like the ox.” This is talking of a future kingdom when Christ reigns.

  21. F. L. A. said

    Zerxil, John shall be home by roughly 9p.m. this evening, but you won’t be hearing from him until tomorrow evening[weather permitting].He still has to work tomorrow, giving him only tonight to recover from the jet-lag.

  22. John said

    Thank you, Zerxil.
    We like Poor Richards Almanac too[smile].

  23. TomC said

    “you must have the faith of a small child”

    Sorry but that ain’t in the bible..

    OR how about “love the sinner hate the sin”

    OR “All sins are the same”

    Or how about “don’t Judge”
