Veterans Day 2019

Thank You to All Our Veterans!!!

On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, in 1918, silence fell across the world. The world held its breath. Was it really over? The Great War, the World War, was over. The silence was beautiful, for the horrors were over. The silence was sadness, for the horrors that were experiences.

November 13, 2019, DAY 320: JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR: Psalms 131-133

November 13, 2019

My heart is not proud, Lord,
    my eyes are not haughty;
I do not concern myself with great matters
    or things too wonderful for me.
(Psalm 131:1, NIV)

The Journey Through the World

The Journey 2019: Journey Through the World

“Isn’t Romans 12:2 where the saying, ‘in the world but not of the world comes from?’ I don’t understand. I mean, unless you are a hermit or weirdo living off the grid in the middle of nowhere, you participate in some form of society everyday. How can you say your are not part of the world? Should Christians be shunning all technology?” The class laughed at the description, with men nodding in agreement to the question. The professor waited for the class to calm down, with a small smile on his face. “When you study Shakespeare, or English Lit, you examine words, look at the context in which they were written, put them in their place in time, and extrapolate the meaning of the phrase, paragraph, or scene from all the contextual clues. You examine the text in the original language, and/or a different translation. The Bible is no different. Contextual clues are important, as is knowing the writer and audience. Finally, the words themselves are important, the exact words. So, let’s open our Bibles to Romans 12:2, and we will compare your translation to mine."
