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 Moment with Marx

(Pro 28:3 KJV)  A poor man that oppresseth the poor is like a sweeping rain which leaveth no food.

As you read the Bible you constantly come across ideas that are at conflict with contemporary accepted mantras.  The way in which the Marxist doctrine of class struggle has been accepted should scare us.  It would if we were paying attention.

Here you have a statement that should alert you to the lie in that teaching.  Here is is clear that oppression is not just something that the rich do.  It is an attitude that does not come from the pocketbook but from the evil in men’s hearts.  It can apply to the poor as well as the rich.

So?  Be aware of the lies being taught.  Know the truth.  Examine your own values and priorities.
