January 24, 2016 Jots and Tittles “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.” (2 Timothy 3:16)
Concerning Scripture, Christ taught that every “jot and tittle” (i.e., even portions of letters, not to mention words and phrases) was inspired and would last forever. In many portions of Scripture, the teaching rests on a seemingly rather insignificant component of a word or phrase.
For example, consider the phrase “yet once more” in Hebrews 12:26, quoting Haggai 2:6. We see, in verse 27, that the argument requiring a coming judgment on all of creation hinges on it pointing back to a similar judgment in the past. Similarly, in Galatians 4:9, we see Paul couching his comments to the Galatian believers, who had returned to a legalistic system, in a question that turned on the active voice of a verb rather than passive. We have not only “known God” but “are known of God.” InJohn 8:58, a clever use of verb tense was made: “Before Abraham was, I am,” thereby asserting Christ’s deity. Note also in John 10:34-36 how Christ cleverly used the mood of a verb while quoting from Psalm 82:6 in order to defuse the charge of blasphemy leveled against Him. Paul’s argument in Galatians 3:16 (based on a quotation from Genesis 22:17-18) shows how even the singular or plural form of a word is equally inspired.
Consider Christ’s answer to the Sadducees who denied personal resurrection when He said, “I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living” (Matthew 22:32). Christ is their God, not simply was. “And when the multitude heard this, they were astonished at his doctrine” (v. 33).
“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable.” Let us handle Scripture with the same care and love it with the same fervency as did Christ and the apostles. JDM
Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. -Winston Churchill
Introduction to Fritz's World
My philosophy (ugh, I hate that word) is simple. Here to glorify God the Father, Christ the Son, and the Holy Spirit. I/we shall discuss the downfall of humankind, problems including cause and effect in our society, and solution(s).We'll be talking about God here as well as the politics of our country that have driven us to the brink of the precipice near which we all stand. My question is this. Do we continue off this cliff, or do we have a national repentance/revival/renewal and maybe gain a new foothold? Or have things progressed so far that the next actions will be by God and the beginnings of the end of time as we know it? While I attempt to fact check as much information as possible, posted here on the political scene, I cannot check it all. I receive a lot of information from other bloggers, and private e-mails, as well as from TV and internet news sources. I haven't the time or ability to fact check every bit of information that comes in and that I post. No swearing or profanity allowed. If you feel it necessary, use asterisks in place of said language to make your point. I think we are all well versed in the language of today so as to get the ideas you'll be trying to put forth. If you're not already a Christian I would like to suggest you watch the "You Tube" video titled, "Dr. Kent Hovind's Answer for the NWO Part 3," linked in the dark blue area below on the home page. Thanks and enjoy!

Abraham Lincoln Said It
We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven. We have been preserved, these many years, in peace and prosperity. We have grown in numbers, wealth, and power as no other nation has ever grown. But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us; and have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us! It behooves us, then, to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins, and to pray for clemency and forgiveness.— Abraham Lincoln, April 30, 1863
Politics Not As Usual
