An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

Cool Doctrine

(Pro 28:7 KJV) Whoso keepeth the law is a wise son: but he that is a companion of riotous men shameth his father.

I was in a discussion about the younger generation.  You know how it goes, no respect, ignorant, etc.  One of the observations we had was that the younger generation seems to be totally out of touch with the economics of socialism versus capitalism.  They seem to be totally ignorant about how they are being manipulated.  To be fair, I am not sure it is just the younger generation that is this way.

I understand that there are pastors in large churches that refuse to take a biblical stand on any kind of sex outside of marriage.  There are organizations calling themselves churches which will accept the statement that Jesus was not physically raised from the dead.  The list goes on.  This is based on a lack of wisdom, a lack of respect for the Biblical law, no fear of God and a general rejection of all the things God has done to teach us.

So?  All we can do for many of them is gently stand our ground.  Remember that gently does not mean we bend with the wind.  It means that we don’t get angry and super aggressive.  It means that we keep our cool as well as our doctrine.  Give the Holy Spirit time and material to work with.
