Right Division Blogs
We have recently begun a new series called the U,V and W's of right division. This title has been carefully chosen because I do not wish to give the incorrect notion that the series will be the "final word" on R/D but that it will extend the already published "ABC's of R/D" https://rightdivision.com/study/abcs-right-division
"The American College of Pediatricians urges educators to reject all policies that condition children for transgender sex. Facts, not ideology, determine reality." Leonardo Blair, Christian Post.Com
The word "perilous" means "dangerous." These are dangerous times...murders, mass murders, random killings, family murders. This is the result of men loving themselves...they care about no one else; my life is important, yours is not!
We have had multiple killings in bars, churches, parks, schools, shopping centers...no place is safe.
The Psalmist said:
" He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with Him." Psalms 126:6
This is a long time quoted verse regarding soul winning. It is a promise, a challenge and instruction. It matches the last book that Paul wrote. His last instructions to Timothy were:
"…do the work of an evangelist…" 2 Timothy 4:5
Super Bowl 50 has come and gone. It was a great defensive football game which thrilled the real aficionados of the game and was boring to those who just want see touchdowns. As usual, there were private celebrations after every big play with either the offensive or defensive player drawing great attention to himself as if he won the game. This game also revealed that some who can celebrate their wins cannot handle their losses too well. Grown men drawing millions of dollars, pouting, whining and blaming others. This attitude has marked the biggest change in sports in my lifetime.
"O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!" Matthew 23:37
For three and one-half years Jesus had preached to and prayed for His people.
"...He came unto His own, and His own received Him not." John 1:11
Matthew 10:28 seems to do service for both the traditional and conditional views of the soul.
KJV Matthew 10:28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
TBT Matthew 10:28 καὶ μὴ φοβηθῆτε ἀπὸ τῶν ἀποκτεινόντων τὸ σῶμα, τὴν δὲ ψυχὴν μὴ δυναμένων ἀποκτεῖναι· φοβήθητε δὲ μᾶλλον τὸν δυνάμενον καὶ ψυχὴν καὶ σῶμα ἀπολέσαι ἐν γεέννῃ.
The Lord says do not be fearful of those who can kill the body but are not able to kill the soul rather fear him that is able to destroy both soul and body in gehenna (the valley south of Jerusalem where Moloch took live children sacrifices). which is used here of the second death.
