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.

A Judge Not Moment

(Pro 28:21 KJV)  To have respect of persons is not good: for for a piece of bread that man will transgress.

The KJV “respect” (5234) of “persons” (6440) is better than the NASB “partiality”.  Solomon was probably reflecting on the tendency to favor the rich but the principle applies to many other areas of life.  It does not mean your grandchildren are not the cutest or smartest.  It means that you don’t judge people based on superficial details.  Obviously the superiority of my grandchildren is deeper than their skin.  It is rooted in their genes.

This is also a Biblical principle that flies in the face of much of the contemporary teaching that is being called CRT or White Privilege.  Those ideologies are based on exactly what this is condemning:  Skin color.  To claim to be Christian and go along with this perversity is to claim that iron pyrite is really gold.

So?  It isn’t politics.  It is Biblical morality.  Know the difference.
